Simply Profound

Happiest of Weekend to you

as you/we rediscover and explore 

the eternal wonder of 


making worthwhile 

every mile

every smile, 

every tear, 

every task

And stunning us 

with so much more

Than we could think of ask

-ing for…

This not-so-secret ingredient

makes mundane ‘musts’ an honor to perform

Suddenly because of love

joy takes the heart by storm

as wonder wakens worship

and worship begins to brim

turning the very common chore

to hallelujah-hymn 

Today’s chores include potluck prep for

tomorrow’s lunch…

It makes the sacred difference

In everything we face

The action and the consequence

Humbled and honed by grace

It heaps the heart with thankfulness

And softens Want’s reply

With a replenished happiness

That money cannot buy

It sweetens would-be commonplace

And purifies intent

And tunes the motive in life’s race

With awe and compliment

It is simple, yet so profound

Cheering pauper and king

It turns time into holy ground

And sweetens suffering

…because its joy runs rife with pain

Yet none can get enough

Of what none can fully explain

The greatest of these; love

Love equips/compels us to willingly walk

where without it, we would not

1 Cor.13:13

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; 

but the greatest of these is love.

2 Cor.5:14-15

For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: 

that if One died for all, then all died; 

15and He died for all, that those who live 

should live no longer for themselves,

 but for Him who died for them and rose again.
