Unfailing love

 

Lord,

You love us,
Even when we don’t love you. 

You care for us,
Even when we ignore you.

You help us,
Even when we don’t serve you.

You forgive us
Even when we hurt you.

You remember us,
Even when we forget you.

You see us,
Even when we don’t seek you.

You hear us,
Even when we don’t listen to you;

And you know us
Even when we don’t acknowlege you.

Thank you, Lord,
For your unfailing love.

Written on the day of my first Holy Communion

 

Lord, 
From today, I turn my face away
From all the harm
My mother did to me,
Remembering it no more.

Instead, 
I call the positives to mind, 
While thanking you
For bringing good
From all I have experienced in life.
