my favourite things/love more than anything

she is just a young woman
twenty five
but almost as old as
Mother Teresa
with love

she is twenty eight
she is sixty
she is seventy...

all these "love" people
in my life

God knows their names...

who rather than riches
and treasures
or even beauty

would rather be love

they are a picture of joy to me
radiant in simple beauty
shining from within
a light
through all their cracks
of imperfection
and battlescars

more radiant
than the morning sun
the full harvest moon
or Venus
sitting sure

a glimpse of the Father's Son
shines through these fine cracks
His glory never dulled
but cheering
and encouraging on
in the hearts of
the weary
the forgotten
the broken

"We have been created for greater things. Not just to be a number in the world, not just to go for diplomas and degrees, this work and that work. We have been created in order to love and be loved." ~Mother Teresa

To live long like Mother Teresa
and learn this truth
to be a young woman
twenty five
and live this truth

love more than anything
my favourite things
