A New Look At Love

While Jeanette was attending the writer's conference in Indianapolis I was doing sightseeing. One place I went was the home of James Whitcomb Riley. His name may not be all that well known today but everyone knows one of his creations, for he was the poet who penned "Little Orphan Annie". The home was a real pleasure to tour and at the conclusion of the tour I bought a book of the complete poems of Mr. Riley. This morning as I was reading a few I came across these lines in a poem entitled "If I Knew What Poets Know".

"I would sing of love that lives
On the errors it forgives."

I don't know if Riley was a Christian or not, but these lines certainly describe God's love in a new way I had never thought of before. It's a good target to shoot at for our own love.
