Searching for the Scent of You

              
I wrote this to Robert while he was here in the U.S. and I was finishing up the details of installing new directors to the ministry:
 
Everywhere I go I search for the scent of you
I lift a shirt, a hat, the jacket you wore last fall
Sadly  your scent's not there anymore and I shed a tear or two
 
We put our lives together in the Lord and began to share
Our thoughts, dreams, dislikes and our intense love
I never thought in a million years I would find that anywhere
 
Then came the terrible crisis which pulled us apart
Anger, rejection, lies and a lonliness we couldn't bear
Betrayed by those who seemed to love us, this broke our heart
 
Still shattered and caught up in the weight of it all
We prayed, fasted, asked our Father to intervene
On our knees and on the floor we prayed,  He answered the call
 
Our love is stronger now, tested by the fire
Burned up, cleansed, newly ready for our Lord
Who but God could lift us higher?
 
Praises to the King!  Praises to the Lamb!
Our life is stronger now
Because of the great I AM
