When We Begin

This past weekend I was privileged to participate in a spiritual retreat - Good News Via de Cristo.  It was an amazing experience that I recommend to all Christians.  This poem was my response to one of the talks where God's love for us was described so beautifully. 

When we begin, God is there.

Watching, loving, in wonder.

He holds our future in His hands.

He makes our plans and they are good, amazing, incomprehensible, beyond our imagination.

In all things good and bad, close and far, his banner for us is love…

Always love, love, love, love – a flag over us.

In baptism we begin our relationship.

We take His name – we, His beloved.

Our marriages and soul ties to family and close friends a hazy glimpse of the mystery.

This life abundant – more than we can create or plan or imagine.
