Remain in My love

Sometimes one just finds a gem and here is one for me. Simply because this was written in 2008, and we are now in 2015.  It may not seem long but the fondness is evident in the exchange, is it not?

Just three words and a big broad smile

‘Write to me’ you said

So here goes

A little note to say hullo

And I want to say how much I have enjoyed your many articles

They give glimpses of your good self

I seem to see the smile

And I certainly hear it in your voice

Every little note

Written surely with love

Indeed written with a joy quite unexplainable  

And you will ask and I will reply

Yes, I had a good retreat

Wonderful as always

A vacation with the One who loves me

The One who cares for me and wants to give me the best  

There was the Emmaus experience on the first morning

I saw Him at the Breaking of Bread

My joy overflowing in tears of consolation…

I even heard Him say

Remain in my love  

Oh what memories I now hold within my heart

Just because I responded to His invitation

To annually take a break and spend it with Him  

Eight long years I have been doing this

The rewards are beyond counting

As I see my wounds healed

My pain lessened

And my outlook of life improved  

This is no doubt a lifelong process

And who cares when one knows

It is He who will always be there

And who will say ever so gently

Remain in my love.
