“The maker of the universe is in love with me, and that love makes me love him so dearly…”      –Jessica Latshaw

“The Maker of the Universe: A Passion Play”

The mystery of the universe,
The meaning of life is this:

It is love,
True love.

It is the first bloom of spring;
It is an ancient river flowing out to sea,
The seed that floats in the breeze.

It is love,
True love.

A mother enduring the joy of birth,
A father’s proud smile.
The return of a wayward son.

It is love,
True love.

A man giving up life for his friends:
The means to the end;
His Spirit conquering death.

It is love,
True love.

It is her head rested on His chest,
Their lips locked together.
It is the ring in her ear,
The rings on their fingers.

It is love,
True love.

It is one spirit;
Deeper than one flesh.

It is love,
It is true love.

“Wear me as a seal over your heart, as seal upon your arm; for love is as strong as death, passion cruel as the grave; it blazes up like a blazing fire, fiercer than any flame.”
     –The Bridegroom, Song of Songs 8:6
