Wait
For us,

And love us
All –

How wonderful
You are!

To love you

Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another (1 John 4:11; NIV).

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them (Romans 12.9; NLT).

Love your neighbour as yourself (James 2:8; NLT).

 

To love you

How others feel.

To love you
Is to listen
To their problems.

To love you
Is to help them
Grow and heal.
