Love...Is a Many Splintered Thang!
By Mark Edgemon

It is our Creator's desire that we love our enemies, those that would harm us,
Who want to hinder our lives, to humiliate and even in their hearts, kill us.
As I contemplate loving the contemptible, the soulless wicked, I pause
And meditate, looking for the peace, which comes from facing my adversary in love.
 
And finally I see it, for the first time I know how to fuse love for the haters by the wayside.
I love, to stand in full armor, the sword of Truth sharpened, moving swiftly from it's sheath.
I love to see it glistening as it reflects the Son, who radiates the glory of His Father.
I love, to see the hard glare of my adversary soften to fear, as he sees the once invisible valiant behind me!
 
I love to attack the foe, who out numbers me carnally, deflecting their blows with shields of faith.
I love seeing the balance of good and evil calibrate to light, with each wicked that is removed.
I love witnessing tangible acts that I am not alone and that I am empowered to face...evil...down.
I love my enemy only one way...under my feet and in that way...I love them abundant!
