I spent some time embossing
on a bookmark a lovely design,
it was a way to make it more,
adding some beauty took just a little time.
Odd to think it had to be reversed
in order to come out right,
and such a surprise that the paper would take,
being stretched into a brand new delight.
Then taking a brush exceedingly fine,
faint color applied here and there,
bringing out the detail of the beauty,
took patience and loving care.
It reminded me so of how our love
becomes more as each day passes by,
we emboss it with the design of our choice,
adding colors as soft as a sigh.
The swirls and curves of the design so lovely,
God inspired each and every one,
and the colors of love painted with our hearts,
are thankfully never quite done.
Each day we can add, or start another design,
each pattern made unique and new,
for each hour and minute brings its own little twist,
new sweetness to the words I LOVE YOU.
How I thank my Father above
for inspiring our hearts to soar high out of view,
and for giving us endless ways to express,
how very much I LOVE YOU!
