Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ bringing you a Message Minute.

I'd like to share an original creation of mine that may have a message you need to hear.  This poem written in the style of a Shakespearean sonnet is titled, "You are Loved."
(A Shakespearean sonnet contains 14 lines of 10 syllables following the rhyme scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF GG.)

Ever and anon, be sure; you are loved.
For as the Son rises, one realizes.
This awesome truth remains; It is not shoved,
But gently trickles into the wisest.

You are loved, by the great Father above,
Through whom is every good and perfect gift,
By Spirit who showed in likeness of a dove,
Whose blessed peace and comfort kindles so swift.

You are loved, by the Sacrificial Son,
Who dared care not if you were rich nor poor,
By His blood your full salvation is won.
This loving effort stands forevermore.

So choose to love, due to the gift granted.
Share this love with others. You'll be glad you did.

You are Loved.
