Topic: Vines (11/21/05)

TITLE: Love Song
By Helen Harris


Love Song

When I think on the topic “vine,” I think of Jesus Christ,
the True Vine of love. He is the Vine and real Love of my life.
To the sweet Savory Vine;
I sing Alleluia, Alleluia, Praising His Holy Name.

Jesus kept His Father’s commandments; and laid down His life for me.
After all the horrible things He suffered, He said, “Weep not for me.
Weep for yourselves, and for your children; for they that do these things
in a green tree; What shall be done in the dry?” Then he said, “Father, forgive
them; for they know not what they do.”

There stood by the cross; the women who bewailed and lamented for Him. There
Stood by, His mother, Mary who watched as the nails was driven into her
Beloved Son hands and feet. What Agony she must have felt on that day?

On the Cross, Jesus is in Great unimaginable throe, is Watching.
He is now looking at His mother and the disciple, whom He loved.
He said to the disciple, “Behold thy Mother.” The sun became
darkened, and the Veil of the temple was rent in the midst.
Jesus then cried with a Loud voice, and said, “Father, Into Thy
Hands I commend My Spirit…
No greater love is any man than the Love of Jesus, the Vine.

In remembrance of the Vine, we celebrate Thanksgiving in giving thanks
to the Lord for our entire Blessings; And then comes Christmas Day, the holiday
we celebrate the Birth of the “Babe,” Jesus the Christ, “Singing, Glory to God
in the Highest, and on earth Peace, and Good Will”

Jesus is the true Vine and His Father is the Husbandman. Remaining
a branch of the Vine, and bearing good fruit in Him, He said,
“I will be clean through His Loving spoken Word; and into my heart
He will send Love, Peace and Joy.”

He is my Love, the way, the truth, and the life; for I cannot come
unto the Father, but by Him. In Knowing Jesus, I will know the
Father too; for in the Son the Father is Seen
When I bear good fruit from the Vine and keep His commandments;
God, His Father is Glorify…

When I abide in Jesus, He will abide in me. Without God,
I am just a helpless branch; and there’s nothing I can do.
When I abide in Jesus, the Vine; and Keep His commandments
I shall also be, beloved of God, His Father and then Jesus will manifest
Him self unto me.

He is Love, was the Crucified Christ and forever the Living everlasting Vine
Singing Alleluia, Alleluia; Praising the Holy Lamb of God, the Christ Jesus…
My True Love, the true Vine.

St. John 15:1 and 5 KJV
I am the true vine, and my Father is the
husbandman. I am the vine, ye are the branches:
He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth
forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

We can do nothing without
The Vine…

I like how you wove the common thread through the birth, life and death of Christ. I didn't quite get the structuring of the poem, but I often don't "get" poetry - so who am I to criticize? Keep up the good work!
