Love has many aspects... “Do not worry about all your tasks Take the walk in a favorite place Wear gloves that you may have Warm hands besides a warm heart.” And warmth has come to my heart As I pause on this cool day in late autumn Many trees are bare now As my soul has felt of late Lonely for the loving touch of my beloved I found a little pine cone (I did not know they came so small!) Perhaps my baby faith can grow As I ponder the many aspects of love. On my return walk I am in a bubble of happiness The little pine cone is tenderly held in my gloved hand And I see lovely sights I missed before Yellow flowers blooming by the stream bed Brown and yellow leaves floating on the still water A play of light from the warming sun And I think of the comfort I have received this day I remember a shepherd boy long ago Who was led by the still waters And received restoration for his soul. Indeed, love has many aspects!
Today is a drizzly winter day in Charlotte, but I was drawn to put on my raincoat and take my traditional walk! During it I was thinking of the song “Love Changes Everything”, and I played it when I returned. I discovered that it comes from the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical “Aspects of Love”. Enjoy the song!
