“The Knowledge Of Love”

by Christopher B. Copas


Love suffers deep.


Love is not afraid to weep
In front of one’s beloved.


Love is willing to lose a lifetime of sleep.
And yet…
Love, as it is meant to be
Supplies us with abundant rest.


Love always remembers that which is good,

Yet tends to forget that which isn’t.


For to love, yes to love is to always forgive—

To release that torment forever—

To surcease and let live.


For this above all things

Is why love exists.

**************************************************

Through all of life’s storms—
Through all of life’s pain—
Through all of the tears and the loneliness—
Love remains strong—
Love always remains the same—
No matter what.


For love will not play any game
That is not committed in truth.


Love is slow to anger—
Love knows no rage.


You cannot hold love hostage—
You cannot lock love in a cage.


Love takes time
For it slowly turns the page.


From the very beginning to the very end
Love knows no fault
Love knows no sin.


Love is not obsessed with fortune
Love is not infatuated with fame.


Love does not love money.


Love gives us life.

Love is holy.


Love will gladly play the fool,
Even forever—if love feels that it has to,
Knowing that it won’t

After all is said and done.


For its one and only cause
Is that love does not pause.


Love does all of this because of love.


Love sheds billions of tears.


Love takes a risk
Love takes a stand.


For God established love to overcome fear.

 

For love knows no envy
And love is never obstinate.


Love goes whenever we go wherever we go.
For if we listen and obey its voice—
Then love shall never let us go—
Because where love is

There is no cold.


Love is peaceful,
Love is liberating
Because it is love that truly sets us free—
That leads the way to happiness eternal.


Sometimes the depth of someone’s love

Is beyond our comprehension.
And yet…
The depth of our love

Is sometimes beyond theirs.


Love is full of joy;
Love does not toy.


For love believes in the truth
In the truth that always believes.


For love is full of trust.

 

For love is an eternal touch—
That feels equally as exhilarating

And equally as new

The thousandth time around
As it did the very first.


Love’s motto is: No Pain, No Gain
Yet sometimes love has to abstain,
In order that love may prosper and remain
In order for love to stay in the game.

 

Yet love has to be shown

In order for love to grow.


For love is not meant to be concealed
Rather, love is always meant to be revealed.


Love is never conceited.


For love is as much wanted as it is needed.


Love never boasts.


Love is gracious.


Love has only one condition—
You have to show it.


Sometimes love is misunderstood—
Though love’s intentions are always good.


Love does not discriminate
Rather, love always appreciates.


Love is not afraid to confide.


Love doesn’t hide.


Love never lies.


Love not only pleases—
Love satisfies.


Love endures and is fertile.


Love cures and is eternal.


Love sees
Love believes
Love is the ship that sails within—
Because love conquers all
LOVE
ALWAYS
WINS.

  1. GOD IS LOVE . WHAT A WONDERFUL GOD AND FATHER WE HAVE . WE ARE HIS CHILDREN THEREFOR LIKE FATHER LIKE CHILDREN , WE MUST BE LIKE OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND BE LOVE TOO .
    HAPPY THANKSGIVING ONE AND ALL.
    A SPECIAL THANKSGIVING DAY BLESSING TO
    MARIANNE AND HER FAMILY AND A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HARD WORK YOU DO MARIANNE ON THIS WEB TO BRING THE REALITY OF GOD TO THOSE WHO ARE FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO GET IT AND READ IT.

  2. Hear, Hear!

  3. Love is the only thing which makes life bearable. It is the only
    justification for our lives, from our point of view down here on
    earth. When one’s love passes on, one lives in limbo, just waiting
    for God’s love to deliver us from this much pain. I hope there really
    is a Rapture soon, for all of His family who need to be at home, including Marianne and her family.

    Mariel

  4. Mariel, I so agree with you. Bring on the rapture, deliver us, Lord, speedily! I’ll never forget a favorite pastor, (son of an infamous pastor, we didn’t really agree with) when he said, “God, why did You sentence me wiith this life on earth?” It’s rough and tough here, because of all the things love isn’t. You can love, love, love, and still have tremendous pain..we know why! Many of us are rapture ready, we think, anyway. Can we really comprehend, no pain, no abuse, no egos, no agendas, no toxins, no poisons, etc…just all love and light? I try, seems heavenly to me but I know I am not able to get even close to what our heavenly Father has for us…

  5. I was going to wait til tomorrow to wish you and everyone else who celebrates Thanksgiving a happy one. But maybe you will be busy and won’t see it. So I’ll do it now. I’ve been in and out today getting ready for the holiday season.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thanksgiving

    T….. Is for our thankfulness for many joys and blessings…
    H….. Is for our homes so warm and bright…
    A….. Is for autumn, time for harvest and abundance…
    N….. Is for nature’s beauty and delight…
    K….. Is for the kitchens where good food is cooked with love…
    S….. For spicy fragrances in the air…
    G….. Is for the gathering of family and friends…
    I….. For the inheritance we share…
    V….. Is for the vision that the Pilgrims held so dear…
    I….. Is for high ideals in all they planned…
    N….. Is for our native country brave and great and free…
    G….. For God’s great goodness to our land.

  6. Thank you Kitty, and the same to you and yours!

  7. Someday, when Messiah comes, there will be love that covers the earth, and man will live in harmony and peace with nature.
