Don’t Wait


1 Peter 4:8
New Living Translation (NLT)

8 Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.

Patina of the Heart

The old kettle had sat there for years
In the field next to the old wooden shack
It’s copper glow long since gone
And hidden beneath a patina of black

He had bought it in town for his wife
Purchased over time from the general store
He placed it there that fateful night
A surprise left just outside the door

He broke into the room with a grin
Looking for his wife to be waiting there
Only to find after searching the house
She couldn’t be found anywhere

Then as he noticed there in the kitchen
A note on the table was all that she left
Simply saying that she could stand it no longer
Since their marriage of love was bereft

An old man now with years of pain built up
His heart like the kettle was tarnished and torn
He waited too long to express his love
And it left him heartbroken and forlorn

So just a little advice as you end each day
Be sure to hug and tell those that you love
How very much that it means to you
That they were sent to you from above

Bind us together in love. Keep us from petty anger and pride. May we always model ourselves after Jesus and live at peace with everyone.

Thank You, Lord!
