Love Lies In The Hands of a Man

Love lies in the hands of a Man.
This is something I have come to understand.
He touches my heart and comforts my soul.
He’s the part of my life that makes me whole.

Love began in the hands of a Man
Who holds me with His nail scarred hands.
He knows I was in danger and that I would die.
His answer for saving me, “Love is why.”

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who taught me to walk, holding my hand.
He has given me family, security, and years.
He has placed in me compassion for others’ tears.

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who has a desire in his heart for God’s plan.
He was placed in my womb for a short while,
And has left in my heart an endless smile.

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who is something I have yet to understand,
For he is more than I thought God had in store.
I have never felt so loved and adored.

Love lies in the hands of a man
Who will give to me his wedding band.
He will stand with me before our Lord
And vow to love me forevermore.

Love lies in the hands of a Man
Who has given me all this love again and again.
For each and every man who has given me his love,
Has been a gift of love from a Man above.

Inspiration: Knowing that love lies in the hands of a Man

I Made Him Happy

I made him happy and he smiled.
I was so afraid and insecure all the while.
But my love for him made me try.
I couldn’t give up and cry.
I had to see if I could
do something that was good.
So I went out searching and searched for so long.
But I couldn’t give in when things went wrong.
I just held on and believed in my love.
And sure enough found just what he would love.
What a simple task you say, to find a birthday present.
But when it’s for someone you love, you know what it really meant.
And I’m glad I kept on searching and didn’t settle for anything less,
because I know I made him happy, and to see his smile was the best!

Love in 3’s

Prayers, praises, psalms.
Good things to employ.
Mercy, mirth, Master.
Good things to enjoy.
Bibles, baptisms, blessings.
Gifts from a God of love.
Cheer, charity, children.
There is never enough.
Comfort, consolation, contentment.
Gifts of the Holy Ghost.
Father, Son, Holy Ghost.
I love them most.
