Spiritual Sundays - Three Nails To Love

Hello Everyone,

bloggerspiritsidebar
Spiritual Sundays is where you can write a little something spiritual, a favorite scripture, poem, song or even a prayer. It is hosted by Charlotte and Ginger. Click on the picture to join or to read other Spiritual Sundays posts.

I haven’t posted a Spiritual Sundays post in over two weeks. The last two Sundays I have been sick and didn’t even get out of bed.

My hubs has had this friend for a long time. He writes songs and poems. He has given me a book of his writings and in that book are white copy paper of more of his poems and songs. My hubs had to work yesterday and when he came home he handed me two more of these poems and songs. I do enjoy getting them and reading them. Here is one of the one’s he gave me yesterday.

Three Nails To Love

Here are three symbols of my Father’s great love
The only true kind coming from heaven above
Jesus in his very own way saying how He loves us so
Showing this world the kind of love we all should know

One nail for my Father, one nail for Jesus and one nail for me

As the first nail was driven in the palm of His right hand
Jesus said I do this so that you can truly understand
All the great love that my Father has in store for you
He loves you above all forgiving you He will do

One nail for my Father, one nail for Jesus and one nail for me

Jesus said for this I do as a man
As the second nail was driven in his left hand
I will show you that my love for you will always last
I will take your sins on me I will forget your past

One nail for my Father, one nail for Jesus and one nail for me

Jesus said this is a covenant with my Father to keep
As the third nail was driven through the sole of his feet
I do this to show you the love i have for you today
I give to you a love that will always stay

One nail for my Father, one nail for Jesus and one nail for me

Three symbols of love that came from heaven above
Three little nails all about my Father’s love
Showing how to return to heaven at last
Only by three nails can we be forgiven of our past

One nail for my Father, one nail for Jesus and one nail for me

Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem with us. As I read it I was picturing those nails as they were being driven. Love like that is almost unimaginable. No, not almost - completely unimaginable, but it's true.
Blessings,
Charlotte
