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.

Giving

Giving.
It’s not about the gift
It’s a lot about the giver
We tend to applaud and adulate
Those who give more, but
At times we disregard
Those who gave so little
It’s human nature
A natural human tendency
But, it’s not how God intended

Jesus applauded the widow
Who gave little out of nothing
To teach us a valuable lesson
The widow desired to give
Her heart longed to give
Hence, her meagre possession
Was not a deterrent
Jesus knew she gave from
The heart, her heart only

We have to learn to thread cautiously
When we applaud gifts and givers
Every gift is important
More-so every giver
Thankfully it is God who rewards
He rewards the heart
Not the pocket
He blesses motives
Not the charismatic moves
We must learn not to judge a giver
By the measure of his gift
But by the motives and intents
Of his hidden heart

When we master this skill
We will realise how important it is
To appreciate and praise every giver
With true heart-felt words of gratitude
Despite the size of their gift

From Head To The Heart

This is a beautiful wonderful song by United Pursuit that inspires my heart a lot.
Please enjoy.
I open up to You
This love that makes me new
Oh, may my heart receive
This love that carries me
From the head to the heart
You take me on a journey
Of letting go
And getting lost in You
From the head to the heart
You take me on a journey
Of letting go
And getting lost in You
My heart is open wide
I will receive your light (ey ey ey)
You give me faith like a child
In you, my heart runs wild
‘Cause there’s no shame
In looking like a fool
When I give You what I can’t keep
To take a hold of You
There’s no shame
In looking like a fool
When I give You what I can’t keep
To take a hold of You
More than words, more than good ideas
I found Your love in the open fields
More than words, more than good ideas
I found Your love in the open fields
More than words, more than good ideas (ey ey ey)
I found Your love in the open fields
More than words, more than good ideas
I found Your love in the open fields

Broken Windows

As many hands build a house
So does many hearts make a home
(Unknown)

So many shut doors
So many broken windows 
Poker faces and hurting hearts
Drowned dreams and silent sighs

Only love turns a house into a home
Only love draws the heart to its home

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

Tender Drizzles

Soft tender whispers
Your words
They seep into my heart
I listen
Beautiful, delicious
Like the honeycomb
Sets me at ease
A cosy hug, we share
None willing to untangle
Silence
Sweet silence
An eternal cuddle
It seems
Your cheek
Brushes against mine
Caressing faces
Touching noses
Soft strokes
Your hands
Through my hair
A delicate peck
Your lips
On my forehead
I bask in this aura, of love
Feelings, like butterflies
Dancing, fluttering
Inside while we sit
In silence
No words
No actions
Just us and
The ticking clock
Such precious moments
Time, rolling by
Endlessly, it seems
Golden radiance
Heaven’s rays of love
Beaming through
On a summer morning
The day beckons
Slowly, reluctantly
Unwilling, to begin the day
Yet, we rise
But, with joy, a smile
And a mutual, eternal love
For each other
Though apart on sight
Entwined, inseparable
One heart, one soul
We are

Poet’s Notes:
A love poem I wrote in honour of my 10 years marriage anniversary with my husband this June.

H- Heart

Listen to your heart, your instincts and intuition. Don’t be too quick to jump to conclusions and make impulsive decisions. To get the best out of your limited resources, you must have a time to pause and listen to your heart amidst the excitement and adrenaline.

Listen to heart, what can you hear? Sometimes you may feel that you are ready for the next step, but if you listen you may hear your instincts/intuition telling you to wait for so and so. Other times, you may be lolly lagging and dilly dallying, but if you listen you will hear your heart nudging you to go for it.

And a note to believers, you have the Holy Spirit living inside of you. Take a pause through those barrage of ideas, thoughts and decisions needing attention, to listen to your heart, what is God telling you to do?

Most of the times, if we tell ourselves the truth, our intuitions are always correct. So let’s not make avoidable mistakes by ignoring the small tugs we feel in our hearts even when it means going against logic or the crowd.
