Counting the Ways: Poetry By Joyce C. Lock - A Spiritual And Inspirational Poem from All-Creatures.org

Spiritual and Inspirational poetry that touch the heart and soul, and provoke the mind.

How do we love Thee, oh Lord?
Let us count the ways.

We're loving you when we worship you,
praise you, and our service is for you.

We're loving you when we're honest,
open, and real.

We're loving you when we walk with you,
talk with you, and glean upon your every word.

We're loving you when we have compassion,
show mercy, and forgive.

We're loving you when we believe in you,
wait upon you, and take steps of faith.

We're loving you when we're meek, humble,
and are not offended with another's weakness.

We're loving you when we seek you,
obey you, and see things in your eyes.

We're loving you when we keep our heart,
actions, and motives pure.

We're loving you when we meet needs,
give you credit, and allow you first place.

We're loving you when we don't see stature,
gender, religion, education, or color.

We love you in oh so many ways, Lord.
But when we love you enough to feed your sheep,

IT'S THE REAL THING.
