WHAT LOVE

What Love …
A little babe in manger lay
mother beside Him — with love did gaze
upon her babe in swaddling clothes
The Son of God — an angel disclosed
What love
What faith
What gift divine
Sent from Heaven for all mankind.

What love
This willing Savior gave
so I could gaze upon that tree
that took Him at Calvary.
What love
given to set me free
from these earthly bonds –
He rescued me
What love.

What love
Our Heavenly Father showed
when He turned His face
from this Son of Man —
His one and only Son He gave.
Would I do the same
with a son of mine?
No…
I could not stand the pain
the stain
that evil inflicted upon my lamb
My precious lamb from God.

What love…
I cannot comprehend.

About the author

Sybil was born in Timmins Ontario Canada. From there she moved to Red Lake, a little mining town in northern Ontario. When she was eleven years old, her family moved hundreds of miles south to the town of Bracebridge. It was here where she met her best friend Ann who introduced her to Jesus in a way that she had never known. A love for God and His word developed and she soon became a follower of Jesus. Sybil married when she was seventeen, and her husband was twenty-five. Over the years they were blessed with four children, three boys - Tim, Robert and Garth, and one girl - Karen. God took her faithful husband home to Heaven in December of 2010. And after much heartache and pain, but knowing what was best, God took her daughter Karen home to be with Him in February 2015. In spite of heart rending moments, God has blessed Syb in ways that often left her with her mouth hanging open in amazement! Years ago He began using her writings to reach out to those hurting, those needing an encouraging word, or to those needing to be strengthened with His love. Launching this website was another unimaginable blessing that God bestowed upon Sybil. As she began this new chapter in her life, she prayed Jesus would continue to put His words into her writings that would encourage you to seek Him for yourself. Through her writings and other writers articles included in this site, her prayer is that God will speak to you through these 'Gems' of Encouragement. May you be enlightened; inspired; taught Biblical truths; radiate with His joy; and that you will want to love others in the same way that Jesus loves you.
