His

His was the kiss on your cheek

kind and sweet

 

His was the pat on your back

encouraging

 

His was the embrace

warm and sincere

 

His was were the eyes

truly seeing

 

His was the laughter

enjoying your joy

 

His were the tears of empathy

when you suffered

 

His is the heart

who understands you

 

His was the life, pure and beautiful

ungrudgingly given for you

    even as we put our hope in You.

But You, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
    slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.

– Psalm 86:15 (NIV)

 

See what great love the Father has lavished on us…

– 1 John 3:1 (NIV)

 

 When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come along with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit and troubled.
