We know that we ought to be thankful for the good things and use the not so great things to teach us to count our blessings.

One of the greatest blessing in our lives is to love and know love.

It is far too easy to camouflage the very people we love that make life worthwhile, with the business and busyness of life.

Tis the Season-
It’s Christmas, it’s a miracle, it’s love, it’s a gift –
To fall in love is a precious gift, a miracle.

Would you like to fall in love all over again?

To fall in love all over again brings tears to my heart and rain to my eyes.

Would you like to fall in love again this Christmas season?

To look into the eyes of creator God afresh and see the miracles of his love for you. To once again have hope because of the Man whose birth we celebrate on Christmas Day. To fall in love with the creator not just his creation.

To look into the eyes of your spouse as once you did and caused that head over heels butterfly feeling. The commitment in your heart of your youth to never take him/her for granted.

As a youth or young adult in love it is so natural to want to explore, to touch, to feel that warm body of another human being. To immerse in that sensual electrifying experience. The desire to be in love came so naturally; could that happen again?

I believe that one of the biggest reasons that people are miserable especially at Christmas is because they refuse to let go of the hurts, disappointment, and offenses of others. They justify their pain and keep themselves and others locked in a prison of unforgiveness. Believe me It isn’t easy making the choice to forgive But living with unforgiveness can be deadly! There is a great need to forgive.

A need to rekindle, refresh, fan the flame of love.

To make a date every day. Re-establish connection with your life-companion the forever friendship. There’s a good man in there- there’s a good woman in there.
In sickness and in health. To be captivated once again.

To look into the eyes of your now grown child/ren and remember the naivety of that new mom feeling. To remember your heart swell with love for the little one. The smell, the touch of his/her silky newborn skin of this little human who needs you every second of every day. The promise you made to nurture and keep them safe all wrapped in the warmth of your love. To disrespect or allow harm near your child would be unthinkable. Remember – you would never let anyone or anything interfere with that sweet baby smile. Honor your children.

As we fall in love with God, spouse and child remember those who suffer. For those who are ill, forgotten, lonely; for those who are homeless and are huddled on dark winter nights in the unseen corners of cities all over the world.

Don’t let this season be the greatest regret of your life.
Let it be the greatest love’s rebirth of your Existence. Let it bring you back to life.
To feel, to touch, to hug, to forgive, to kiss, to recommit, bringing joy thought lost.

No it doesn’t have to be a fairy tale but true life.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Merry Christmas

A Great Love Song entitled So Close:
 
 
 
One of my favorite love songs:
 
 
Night and day, you are the one
Only you ‘neath the moon or under the sun
Whether near to me or far, It’s no matter, darling, where you are
I think of you day and night

May this year 2013

BE your year to learn to love, to love, be loved and renew your love!
Love isn’t perfect and the one you love isn’t perfect and you/I aren’t perfect

BUT we keep moving forward to make it work.

The poem below is the poem I wrote for my husband on our 40th Anniversary Sept 2012.

No holds barred imperfection and all.

Happy 40th Anniversary

Some would say
that loving is just a
piece of heaven
or maybe
somewhere between
here and there
the entrance
to the musical ladder of rainbow colors
or maybe
 between earth and that far off gal-axy
 in the midst of a whisper or a breathe
can this be true?
 i must believe the unbelievable truth
forever we could be, in love, eternally
inspired by a miracle
Magnetic

Your grin
your confident athletic stride
across that classroom
caught my heart by surprise
incredible
bending down
to spin the bottle
pick me! yes me! just once!
eye to eye
a glimpse of your glassy sea of love
hair locks of black ,brush mine
hush! time suspended
 i close my eyes
As your lips touch my cheek

All my prayers answered
in that moment
 when into my life he came
 for he was heaven sent,
 i believe in our love
too young to know your
olympian prowess
radiance
wanting, needing
carefree
compassion in your embrace
tender moments
your mouth invite kisses
forever changed
love flowed amidst
the vigor of a gazelle
and the courageous lioness
 n’er a gentler man
than this
caress of my brow
Your whispers

Let’s go for a ride
it’s such a warm evening
climbing into car
top down
your left hand on the wheel
my head on your shoulder
your arm on mine
my right hand catching the wind
to locking my fingers in yours
our hair tangled
many joyous tears flowed free
stopping the car jumping out
let’s dance in the rain
doesn’t matter
hold me tight
don’t let me go
noble steed was he
as his arm slowly stroke my back
pulled me close
precious moments were these
it’s gonna be
A beautiful night tonight

At lover’s lane
captivated by his charm
as he sang to me
 it is your strength i see, as you sing
you’ve opened a window to heaven’s light
my love for you will burn so bright
the night is young let’s swim
under this blanket of stars
refreshed
gathering driftwood to build a fire
your face shimmering in its blaze
enchanted
 as i sit here on the beach
my normal life seems so out of reach
the waves hitting the sand
flankers fly while you hold my hand
passion has seized my soul
ecstasy
all is quiet now
Only the ebb and flow of your breath

This is more
than picture perfect
it’s real
where naive love’s caress
and angels’ wings
 meet hallelujah
young love,
better than wine
unaware of ancient bliss
where once a vacant lot
 brokenness,
now a captivated heart
horizon clear,
hands turned fast
one, two, three, four,
fashioned by love
times are hard
but get back up
 your strength i make my own
for our future’s
Progeny

We forgot how to play
no, we’ve lost our way
bitter words
regret
let’s practise once more
into the depth
it shone again
savor love, love is beautiful
even at the end of your shift
at 4 am
tender touch
soft kiss on my cheek
snuggle in, warm my feet
tired, troubled
and how sweet magic returns
tender touch, lips sweet, fulfillment
 luminous door to the devine
our past came to kiss us here
wonderment, his voice, complete
Wholeness

But what about when I get old
will you still love me
on the ‘morrow?
 yea or née ’tis yea said i
oh love that wilt not let me go
love ’till evening fades
and dawn breaks
in another land
where happiness and love
fill an ocean eternal
who said?
there was ne’er a fountain of youth
ah we are sitting
at its feet
close to apple blossom flowers
With continuous ‘I Love You’!

Thanks for reading this post on my bLoG!

I LOVE that you came to visit!

LOVE

What is love?  The short list.

  • emotion
  • affection
  • affirmation
  • virtue representing human kindness, compassion
  • actions toward others
  • compassionate
  • consideration
  • communication
  • forgiveness
  • gateway
  • gracious
  • sacrifice
  • honor
  • laughter
  • pay it forward
  • personal attachment
  • present- in the moment
  • respect
  • sexual
  • not envious
  • not abusive
  • not angry
  • not selfish
  • not hurtful
  • not compromising

 

Here are a few quotes highlighting love:

Jonathan Edwards said, “Love is the sum of all virtue, and love disposes us to good.”

Mother Teresa said, “The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”

“If a man shuts his ears to the cry of the poor, he too will cry out and not be answered.” – Proverbs

The strength of love is shown in great things; the tenderness of love in little things.”  Robert C. Chapman

Today I want to be  a prompt and a reminder that love and appreciation is very important. It is true our feelings come and go and we oft’ become disoriented in life. Anytime we are side tracked we can find our way back by looking at the perfect example of God’s love.  He invented love.  

Like a lot of other things, love can be enjoyed or abused. Casual or appreciated. Genuine love is an unconditional, sacrificial, kind, caring, faithful, expressive, mature, compassionate, respectful, lifelong commitment. If we say we are Christian and do not love then we do not know truth but have become a liar.

Love is not supposed to be painful. A lot of people misrepresent the Bible and say we have to be obedient to husbands at any cost. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that. Peter did say that wives should respect the authority of their husbands in order to promote harmony within the family; as well as to submit to one another in mutual respect. What the Bible is not suggesting is for wives to become doormats nor feel inferior. If you are an abusive person, please seek help now. Don’t wait until you’ve made a terrible mistake that you will never be able to correct. If you are being abused, please talk to someone you can trust, whether it be a family member, a counselor, a friend, a pastor, a teacher or a doctor. Don’t delay.

Love should be at the forefront of everything that you and I do. Without love, our speaking and doing is noise! Let’s focus on kindness and goodness .

I encourage you to work on your relationships. My prayer for you is a complete, safe and happy relationship.

This week take time to read the entire book of the Song of Solomon.[check the end of this blog to direct you the site] The focus of Song of Solomon/Songs is not progeny but of passion. “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth—for your love is more delightful than wine.”

Do you still get the butterflies when you think of your love? Romantic and sexual  love is an incredible gift from God so don’t give it to just anyone and it will be a wonderful, worthwhile adventure.

You are free to believe as you wish but for me I follow God’s word, the Bible. God wants us to be blessed in love within the context of the marriage. I believe God wants to us to wait for marriage to express sexual love.

At an early age; I envisioned being in a marriage relationship, where there is no shame or bashfulness. You can express every physical desire and have a deep, expressive, loving, wonderful relationship. Ahh  here you can share your hearts, your dreams, your goals, your strengths, your weaknesses, your present, your futures, and your bodies together and without shame!

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. [Romans 12:1-2]

I hope you make time to have a love relationship with your partner, family and with God.

His Rose

A rose
Pink yellow white red or blue
Reminds me of you
Gently takes the thorn
From my skin
Silk and scent
Takes me to the place
Where we spent
Love’s first passionate kiss
Perfection
Is your silhouette
My love is greater
Than ten thousand red
Not a blast of hurry
Stayed on love and bliss
Set free
Unending love forever mine
Like the petals fold
My heart in thankful prayer
Inhale again aroma sweet
Your beauty smile and living
In celebration
Nothing says
I love you
Like His single rose of June
