Climbing Rainbows

"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the earth." -Genesis 9:16

Refined Love

I believe that true (agape) love grows stronger and purer through the flames of sacrifice...

Refined Love

The flames are rising from my heart
All I have loved is burned away;
And as I see the ashes fly
I send above the tears I cry—

I pray that somehow through the flames
The love that blazes bright tonight
Will be a witness to the ages
To those who gaze into its pages;

For I would rather feel the fire
And wear the scars of pain untold
Then stay in safety in the boat—
I’ll chase the stars and dare the moat;

Within the heat my joy’s complete,
For God is here, He knows my pain;
I’m now a living sacrifice,
Refined through tears, this love’s from Christ.
