A believer's Valentine to the Lord

Image source: Communio

This exquisite piece comes to us from Bob Hostetler's Prayer Blog:

Valentine
Like summer snow
floating from a sun-filled sky,
draping airy-white on flowered fields,
Your love astonished me.

No frilly show,
no assorted-chocolate pledge,
no candy hearts or silver kisses
disclosed your care for me;

But unsparing,
thorn-wearing
cross-bearing love,
that opened hands and feet and side
to spill your heart for me,

To recreate,
inundate my longing soul
with giving, holding, accepting,
enfolding love for me.

-Bob Hostetler

(The inscription in French on the image above reads
    "Here is the Heart which has loved us so much!")
