Taking the Plunge

IMG_0488To love with a passion unabating

Into a heart that scans the heights, waiting

As a plunge pool longs for the waters above,

To drink in the cascade of unending love.

Waters entwining to flow together

Running the course of a mighty river:

This is the union, the filling, the giving

That turns mere existence to joyously living.

Two bodies, one flesh; two spirits, two souls,

Two lives come together in God’s perfect whole.

Yes, this is a promise just waiting to be

When His love builds our love forever and free.

The meaning of marriage: the blending, the bending,

The raw, breathless beauty of love never ending.
