1 John 3:1
New Living Translation (NLT)
3 See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him.
Infected With Love
A little bit of something
Just got inside of me,
And now it’s trying hard
To be what it can be,
I’ve started feeling queasy
And my temp is on the rise,
My nose has started running
And there are spots before my eyes,
I’d like to take some medicine
But I’m not sure what is best?
It might be something viral
Or just a bug down in my chest?
I guess I should call the doctor
And request to make a visit?
But by the time they’ll let me come
My symptoms will have quit,
So I’ll just grin and bear it
It’s not that hard to do,
It’s a whole lot easier than the tests
That they would put me through,
Besides there is a special medicine
My mother taught me long ago,
She’d say a prayer and kiss my head
Then pull the covers up just so,
Then I would drift off peacefully
To dreams that made me smile,
Knowing I was loved by her
And that I was God’s own child,
She went to Heaven years ago
But that medicine still endures,
It’s not so much the prayer or kiss
But the love that was the cure.
