My Sister


My sister

Is a song

A song of grace.
With stature and virtue
that reaches heaven’s heights,
and wisdom that plumbs God’s depths.


My Sister

is a song

A song of celebration.

Embracing the here and now.
God’s blessings strewn on the path,
she wraps and joyfully bestows.


My sister

Is a song

A song of hope and life.
She speaks with warmth and gentleness.
Encouraging faith; as the sun
would restore a frozen earth.


My Sister

Is a song

A song of beauty.
A voice the angels have touched.
She gives because it’s what she was born
to do, and it is more than enough.

 
My sister

Is a song

A song of Aroha – Love.
A love that surrounds.
A heart that encompasses friends
and family; reaches out to the lost,
that knows no bounds.


 
My Sister

Is a song

A song that God has given us

To cherish as his heart
of love for us.


To experience as his smile
upon us.

To know in our bond of friendship

a little part
of the unity
of the body of Christ.

(For a dear friend on her 40th Birthday)

 

Ointment and perfumes rejoice the heart: and the good counsels of a friend are sweet to the soul.

Proverbs 27:9
