FaithWriters, February 2013
News and information for the write-brained Christian


"No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us." (1 John 4:12)

"They'll know we are Christians by our love..by our love..." Remember that song? How true it is! Loving each other is the single best thing we can do to show God's love to the world. Not just on Valentine's Day (although it's a great time to celebrate love!) but every day of the year.

The Heart of Lucinda Druell
 by Kenn Allan

The village known as Potters Glen,
Had one abiding jewel,
A beauty rare, yet pure of heart,
Her name—Lucinda Druell.

Around her throat, three polished keys,
Of copper, brass, and gold,
Adorned a fragile silver chain—
A treasure to behold!

When asked to what those keys belonged,
Her eyes would flash with fun,
She'd lay the charms across her palm,
Then clench them tight, as one.

"The first belongs to Heaven’s gate,
Which waits beyond the skies.
The second keeps my virtue safe,
Should impure thoughts arise.

“The third unlocks my virgin heart,
For true love to possess.”
And if men asked which key was which,
She’d tease, “You’ll have to guess.”
