Default Is Thie Appropriate For Valentine's Day

Creation

Love was created by God one night
When the airwas clear and the moon was bright,
And the earth lay silent beneath the sky
And the only sound was a lonely sigh.

For man sat alone by a silver stream.
In its rippling waters, he shaped his dream,
A misty dream he could not explain.
He longed as the forest longs for rain.

He dreamed yet knew not what he craved.
By a cloudy shape was his heart enslaved.
Then God took pity upon his sheep,
And man reclined in peaceful sleep.

When he awoke, the day was new
With the perfumed essence of morning dew,
And he thought of his dream and began to grieve.
Then a cool hand touched his, and Adam saw Eve.

Great story Paul!

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.
