The Touch of Love is seen in the Miraculous as well as the Simple,
In the Drops of Water upon a newborns head,
In the Benediction o’er a Final Resting Place;
The Touch of Love is Bread in our Hands
And Wine on our Lips,
In Prayers offered beside the sickbed
And in Joyful Laughter at the birth of Life;
The Touch is in the Understanding and Patience Spoken to a Troubled Youth,
And in the Sincere Help offered to One in Need,
It is Heard in the Promise of Unconditional Love
And the Warm Embrace or Handclasp extended to a Stranger.
The Touch of Love is known in the grinding bit of a drill
Searching for Fresh Water In a Forgotten Village,
And in a coverlet offered to a refugee, lost and alone.
The Gentle Touch of Love is Shared through words of Encouragement
To One depressed, discouraged or grieving,
And Through the Compassion of Empathy conveyed
By a Wordless Nod or Gaze.
The Touch of Love is Extended to Each of Us and Shared Through All of Us,
To The World In Need.
Inspired and Written in conjunction with Pastor Robert Kehrli
When we See the oppressed, the fearful,
The neglected; silent, but ever tearful,
The outcast, the wounded and the lonely,
The grieving, the lost, and those who are hungry;
Do we See Angels Waiting by their side,
Hovering O’er them while we decide?
Will we Linger and Tend their Need,
Our Love planting a Mighty Seed,
Or will we say “What a Tragedy”,
Yet walk away Blinded by our Apathy?
In Loving Remembrance and Heartfelt Prayerful Consolation of those lost, wounded, and alone.
