Guess what…I Love You


image

 

I love the way you hold me when I’m sad.

I love the way you smile when I’m mad.

I love the caring in your voice.

And I love the way you smell, of course.

I love the way you laugh at my stupid jokes.

I love it when you roll down your window when you smoke.

 

Well, that’s about it. I’m not much of a poet 🙂

Happy Valentine Day!  🙂

The Road Thief


image

I wept in my sorrow and you said “Shh, it’s okay”

I ran from life, hiked up mountains, and crossed every river to escape, but-

You swept me off my feet and made me feel young.

You held my hand, comforted me, crushed my sadness and made me smile.

You showed me there was only living.

We laughed and we smiled. Together, we agreed to be one.

Grow old together, share life and love. I accepted.

With your best intentions, you could not avoid the call.

The road called to you and you dutifully answered.

It  took you hundreds of miles away.

Restless nights, tossing and turning, I wake alone.

How do I love you from a distance?

How do I feel you when you are so far away?

Will I be aged when we see each other again?

Will you be the same?

If I have accepted this fate, will I adapt?

Will I stay here, wait forever and hope you remember your way back home?

How does our story end?

Only time will tell if the road wins with its spell.

Bigger Than No

Because…You Know

Halls Swamp

Have you ever prayed so hard, long, and positive that you just knew YES came from the Answered Prayer Store packaged in a YES bag, delivered by the AngelYes”?

Remember how you felt to know the answer was No, or at least the answer for now from heaven is NO. At this point, this will not change No Not Now.

This No is more of a life change than you think.

Have you grown past or above No? 

Of Course, we understand No especially if it’s a divine definite No. 

Are we obedient enough to humble ourselves even more and say to the Lord,

Yes, Lord Yes. Thank you for your No to me. I love you Lord and respect your decision. I know you see far enough ahead to protect me from myself now and in the future. Whether it be my mouth, my denial, or even if I am innocent…you have and do keep the evils of Yes from overtaking me, mine, and most of all Yours.  I am bigger than No because I know YouI know You are looking out for me. Your finality finalizes with No argument. You are My Answer and My Answerer.  If you always told me No, I would accept No.  If  Yes wasn’t in my understanding, I would settle into You… as I did in the beginning when I knew nothing of No or Yes.  Lord, thank you also for being the Yes of my Life. You are my balancer, weighing in on my substance. “?

Even the Yes, as positive as it is, is hard for me to believe.

I’ll say it:

I can’t believe You say No.

But when you say Yes, I’m in awe.  Thanks for your In-put.
