I am fire!

I am fire!

I am the light that illuminates the world, and hastens the dark to sleep.

I am fire!

I am the red heat in the furnace of caring and tender mercy.

I am fire!

I am the gentle flames of sweet charity as she gives unstintingly of herself to make others great.

I am fire!

I am the earth's mighty winged sword fashioned by the elements to prevent harm.

I am fire!

I leap from heart to heart like faith rekindled.

I am fire; I burn unquenched and shower my sparks upon the faithful heart.

I am fire; I burn away lies and falsehoods. I sear away the black need to control and alter other souls.

I am fire; I kindle the dancing fire of a woman's heart, of a man's love.

I am fire!

I am the shining flame of adoration for your children, the children you bore in pain and hold in infinite tenderness.

I am the unceasing radiance of creation.

I am the leaping, glowing candlelight of a mother as she croons to her newborn.

I am fire!

I am the roaring flames of your convictions and your belief in your children.

I am fire!

I will protect you. Believe in me. Believe in yourselves. I am fire! The very protective flame of parenthood itself. The very desire of life to produce life. The very essence of your loving souls.

I am fire; I will never desert you. I will never grow dim. I am the flame that burns steady in the dark times. I am the leaping energy that fills you with certainty.

I am fire!

I am fire eternal. I am the shimmering flame of your spirit.

I am fire!
