Jesus said to them, "Very truly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise. The Father loves the Son and shows him all that he himself is doing; and he will show him greater works than these, so that you will be astonished. Indeed, just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whomever he wishes. The Father judges no one but has given all judgment to the Son, so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Anyone who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life, and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life." John 5:19-24
Gives Them Life
Intimately and in conversation
a dance of love that transfoms
every life and every individual
moving us all from death to life.
A single word can unlock
the doors of a broken heart
can soothe the angry soul
changing danger into possibility.
Woven together as bright threads
in a single warming blanket
no loss of colors but a blending
a harmony of intertwined lives.
Father and Son, Mother and daughter
bound together in difference directions
child and parent tender despite the years
love binds us as one giving life.
