Train Our Love

This Valentines Day, I think back to one of my favorite poems written by my grandmother, Ruth Bell Graham. In celebrating LOVE today, I want you to remember, love is work.  We must constantly be working at our relationships.  So this is my prayer this morning.

Train our Love
That it may Grow
Slowly…Deeply…Steadily;
Till our Hearts will overflow
Unrestrained and readily.

Discipline it, too,
Dear God;
Strength of Steel
Throughout The Whole.
Teach us patience,
Thoughtfulness, tenderness, and
Self-control.

Deepen it
Throughout the years,
Age and mellow it
Until, time that finds us
Old without,
Within,
Will find us
Lovers still.
