Loving and gracious God,

I have given gold,
But there is only so much gold.

I have given blood,
But I have only so much blood to give.

I have given my time,
But days have only so many hours.

I have given my strength,
But even that has its limits.

So I give my love.

Because love is gold, and love is blood.
And love is time, and love is strength.
But love is also so much more.
Because love is God.
And God is love.

And only you, God, have no limits.
