A Moment with God – Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday

I didn’t know

that Love is real life

and everything else

just a more or less entertaining way

of dying.

And I didn’t know

that Love is like nothing on earth.

Love isn’t what you fall in.

It’s what pulls you out

of what you fall in.

Love isn’t a good feeling.

Love is doing good

when you’re feeling bad.

Love means hanging in

when everyone else

shrugs their shoulders

and goes off to McDonalds.

Love means taking the knocks

and coming back

to try to make things better.

Love hurts.

That’s its way of telling you

that you’re alive.

And the funny thing is that after all

Love does feel good.

People say Love is weak.

But Love is tougher than Hate.

Hating’s easy.

Most of us have a gift for it.

But Love counts to ten

while Hate slams the door.

Love says you

where Hate says me.

Love is the strongest weapon

known to mankind.

Other weapons blow people up.

Only Love puts them back together again.

And everything that seems real, 

that looks smart, 

that feels good, 

has a sell-by date.

But Love has no sell-by date.

Love is Long Life.

Love is the ultimate preservative.

I don’t know too much about Love

but I know a man who does, 

up there on the cross

Loving us to death.

Love is the key 

to the door of the place

he’s prepared for you

in the kingdom of God.

If you’re beginning to understand

then welcome to the real world…
