Balance Paid In Full

debts paid

I am a warrior of love, whose shield is love and my sword is charity.
I am Agape Love! The love that conquers all!
Ah . . . to be drunk with love and saturated into its entire being,
consumed in its purity,
overcome by its beauty . . .
Conquered by love!
With true love there is only selfless giving. Love conquers all in patience and kindness.
Love is pure beauty in its finest form. There is no evil in true love.
Love is a dream I dream; a taste I taste; a feeling I feel; a kiss of energy and life. Love is a rose so delicate, yet one that cannot wilt or fade away. Pull it apart and it will still remain, for its spirit lingers in the depths of majestic surprise and beauty. It consumes your heart before you know it, even as you stand guard and watch.
Ah . . . yes . . . love . . .
Let me drink of thine cup.
Let me become drunk in thy wine.
Let me savor thine taste . . .
Yes . . . love!
What hast Thou done to me my Rose of Sharon; my delightful cup?
Oh Lord . . . I delight in Thee.
Thou ravish mine heart with Thine words toward me . . . my Lord God Most High!

A Little Birdy Told Me

A Little Birdy Told Me
Originally uploaded by Tonya Ashe

I spoke to the birdy
It said all is fine
How could this be
With all the cares of life

The birdy told it's secret
It did confide in me
To be happy
All you do is believe

Believe in what
I thought

The birdy started to sing
It is all about the mood
And in Whom you believe

Birdies have no worries
Cause we sing all day
We trust and rely
Without care of things

The secret is simple...
Trust in God and
Just let your heart sing
