Remedies for the Spirit


 
 

Love That's Given First

 

Set down your expectations.  Leave defenses at the door.

          Love that’s given first, returns as love with more.

 

More that can repair, more that can renew;

           More than ever thought such love could ever do.

 

Love that’s given first is love without reserve.

           Love that elevates a soul to love that they deserve.

 

Set down your “shoulds” and “shouldn’ts” and what’s “supposed to be”.

           Love that’s given first is love that sets you free.

 

Free to breathe the calm; free from ties that bind;

          Free to find the peace and leave the fight behind.

 

Love that’s given first is love without reserve.

           Love that elevates a soul to love that they deserve.
