My Friend for a Lifetime

I have a friend
Sincere and radiantly lovely
Intelligent, greatly wise
With a great sense of humour
God’s gracious gift to me

I have a friend
Gentle and radiantly sweet
I am his beloved
Surely he is mine
God’s loving gift to me

I have a friend
My heart is safe with him
The true love of my life
For worse, for better or for best
God’s perfect gift to me

Dedicated to my beloved husband, my friend for a lifetime.

Temporal Insanity

At times I’m foolish
At times, ungrateful
I go off a tangent
I walk out on You
In search of fool’s gold
Exploring my insanities
Temporarily I am my king
Temporarily I am for me

Your endless Love
In close pursuit, relentless
Many times I change
You remain the same
Forgive my temporal insanity
Lord I’m Yours
Always Yours

(A Poem of Sorts)

God Leads Us Along

Some through the waters, some through the flood
Some through the fire, but all through the blood
Some through great sorrow, but God gives a song
In the night season and all the day long
(A beautiful encouraging song by Gaither Vocal Band)

God is not after the mistakes we’ve made, nor is He interested in our past errors. He is never quick to apportion blame. He is gracious in mercy. These mistakes may cause pain, hurt and some disappointment. Tears may rain down our cheeks endlessly as we sit and ponder in the deafening silence on the outside and the great hurt we feel inside.

Therein in that pain He wants us to come to Him, no, to RUN to Him with arms wide open. To take His hand and let Him hold, comfort and lead us through it all.
Until we let Him, He cannot come in. He’s a gentle Spirit, He doesn’t demand by force.

No one may truly understand what we’re going through but we must be rest assured, God surely does. Only Him can heal, help and restore.

Only God can mend a broken heart. When that heart is given to Him.

Fight For This Love

D6C94F77-C6BF-4F3F-9DD5-E494C2C68B2E

With gentle whispers
Like a lover He woos me
He draws me to His presence
Like the morning dew on delicate petals
He whispers sweet graceful words
Hope, healing and tenderness

I spend time with Him
In quiet solitude
Engrossed in His holy grail
I lose track of time
His love draws me near
I fall at His feet
Tears of joy with my alabaster

Yet I drift off on my own
I make mistakes
He warns, He calls, I don’t listen
But, He’s always there for me
His love never fails
Even when I am far far away

I will fight for this love
I will fight to stay in His love
He loves me
I know
I love Him
More than my life

I will fight for this love
I will fight to stay in His love
Ward of every distraction
Turn my gaze on Him
For my great love and God
Deserves every bit of me
And my undivided attention

Best Friends Forever

B4B5E3C4-DC1A-4F08-ACC4-36B1B3F38691

Friendship is love
Love is friendship,
For great friends love you
Just the way you are
Without giving up on you,
And the power of our love
Makes us best friends forever

“There are “friends?”, there are acquaintances, there are buddies, etc.; but, there is a friend that is always closer, nearer and greatly available more than a brother.”

No Love Lost Between Us

6431DBDE-E894-4AC4-AF2D-ECFF617F6AFD

Like unkept scanty gardens
Neglect killed our friendship
Like unkept broken promises
Lust ruined our trust

“Every friendship needs care, laughter and attention from both sides to thrive. One-sided friendship can only last for a while.”

K – Knowledge is Kinetic #AtoZ 2018

C31A35E4-4963-4586-BC3B-8E7DA7751F18

Knowledge is kinetic
Endless streams of data
Dynamic, constantly evolving
Core of human existence
Break the chains of ignorance
Liberation is power!
Information is life!
Don’t be left behind because
Flowing waters never grow stale
But, stagnant waters stink with time
And so does the human mind…

Knowledge is kinetic

Love Poured Forth

CD7C4A4C-2869-414A-8320-71CC72A80812

Light a spark in her heart
Watch her love lit up
Hold her heart like an egg
Watch her guard yours
With her life

Her love is like a butterfly
That makes special bonds,
With the petals that receive her
Tenderly and warmly;
She’s not desperate for love;

But,

She is willing to share hers,
She has so much to give
So much more than you know

So,
Only he who gives his heart
Only he who pours out his best
Can enjoy the best of her

Until Summer’s Glow

let me go
hide not my valise
winter’s chill
a timely signal.

travel through time
find our keepsakes,
wear my smiles
as love’s true necklace,

warm fragrance,
your cheeks
like sweet lavender
they shall steer me home,
when summer’s glow
breaks forth from above.

If Love Had A Formula

7AD2A5ED-EBF6-4351-9553-DEFA5646E89E

What is love? How do we define love?
Is it just an emotional outburst?
Or a lifelong commitment?
What are the limits, the boundaries of love?
If love had a formula, what would it be?

Love is seeing the best in yourself
Love is seeing the beauty in others
Love is subjective
Everyone is lovable

Love is simple and complicated
Love is intriguing and intricate
Love is neither gullible nor suspicious
Love is not a quitter

Love is finding what makes someone happy
And doing just that
Love celebrates our strengths
Love ignites our passions
Love makes us human and humane

There is perfect rest, total trust and
True companionship in love
For true love, has no fear in it

Love believes, hopes and endures
Love is our cheerleader

If only love was straightforward,
If only love had a formula,
Fortunately so, there is no formula
For love is the secret formula for love

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder
So is love

There is faith, there is hope, there is love
There is beauty, excellence, power
But love is the best of all
And love conquers all

Valentine Haiku – God’s Love #2

Flashbacks stunned his five senses-
Sin ravaged parched souls;
Love’s rescue- a quenching spring.

#Celebrating the wonderful love of God

Notes:
Past memories amazed and lectured his full being, memories of his old life- how sin took advantage of his longings and ravaged his soul mercilessly. But through God’s Love, he was rescued; his thirst was quenched with springs of Living water.

See How Far We’ve Come

AE01BB6C-D316-47B0-9203-76ECACC82DA3

See how far we’ve come,
You were my first crush,
I was your first love.

Silver, gold or
Treasures, I want not,
Though days be cold
Or nights very hot
With you by my side
Now and always, my friend,
I will tackle on life
I will be brave to the end.

See how years have gone past,
I am your love heart,
You are my sweetheart.

Evoke – A Love Tale

The more he thought about her,
The more he realised
She was more than a friend to him,
She was his saviour,
She was his angel from God;
The thought of her evoked nothing more
Than sweet wonderful memories
Of a future they will spend together

But first, he has to pop the question…
