LIKE A SEAL




























¨Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm;
for love is as strong as death,
its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire,
like a mighty flame.
Many waters cannot quench love;
rivers cannot sweep it away...¨

Song of Songs 8:6,7



She is like a seal over my heart.
Death cannot take her away from me.
Not death, nor mighty flames nor raging waters
could take her from me.
Death and its friend, the enemy of our souls,
would like to think she is gone
and conquered - 
without a trace.
But she was victorious -
and she lives!
She lives eternally.
And she lives close to our hearts,
like a seal.

Oh God, let our memories
and her legacy
and our love
live on forever.
May she continue to impact & inspire,
to promote & impassion,
to bless & adorn,
despite this temporary parting.

Let this seal upon my heart
Burn like a fire and
Rage like the waters
A royal love stamp from above -
of belonging & identity & sonship.

Let this seal spread
with noble fury
with passionate determination
with devotion & zeal
to accomplish purposes beyond even her dreams
to overthrow injustice, to anoint other youth
to transmit love & beauty
to emanate truth & purity
to imitate her courage
to carry on the faith work
of this generation...

And yes! to change the world.

Death is going to really regret this!
For she is set like a seal upon our hearts...
