I wonder

Your words stir up my heart,
With a longing to hear more and more of you
Now that I’m hooked
I wonder,
Will something greater come out of this?
Will something more grow out of this?
Or my heart will hang on this loose thread?

It cuts into two
I should hold on a little longer?
Should I let go?
Could it be too soon?
Could I be holding onto a shadow?

I remember your word,
Filled with promise and hope
Yet waiting is so hard,
And everything else seems to be on a rush
What should I do?
I wonder

Not you, but me

Like the wind chasing leaves off a branch,

So did I chase you away from me,

I know it puzzles you,

But don’t take it on yourself,

Nor wonder if anything is wrong with you

 

I understand your pain,

I know it hurts badly inside

And I know you need answers

I have been there, done same things

But acting over it does not take pain away

 

Loosen up, cry, shout, yell… whatever

Get that pain out of your heart

I need others to meet the ‘you’ I knew,

Continue to be the great person I met,

Well knowing it’s not you, but me.

Developing a personal checklist for a soul mate

Developing a personal check list for a soul mate

Developing a personal check list for a soul mate

I have heard of this checklist thing a thousand times, but I’ve always failed to come up with one. So I asked my friends a few questions so that I can come up with my personalized check list.

Don’t get me wrong I did not ask, “What should I put down?”, we just shared soul mates and they shared with me how they came up with check lists, as well as the indicators of those qualities.

Well the check list was finally made, but I was still not comfortable with it; most especially with the priority order of each quality. So I spent more time looking at it over and over… then I remembered my big brother’s comment about marriage.

“The only thing one should consider before getting married is; Can I stand his(her) mistakes and can he(she) stand mine?”, he said, “the rest are added advantages!” Well that was quite complicated for me, “how do I know all his mistakes?” I wondered! Well that was my big brother… you may have a different opinion than that just like my buddy Paul.

Paul says, “The only thing you need to look at is his (her) relationship with God”, “and the rest will follow but without God the rest are so deceptive!”

“It’s written, seek first the kingdom of God and the rest shall follow you…”, “the rest are so complicated and with no foundation in God anything can change” he confirms his statement.

Quite interesting of him, and trust me, I believe he is right. I know you have your own opinion and may be your own check list. I just want you to know I wish you well, and may God light up your path.

All for nothing

All for nothing

I have waited for you patiently

From one season to another,

From drought to floods,

I have waited.

Now that I have seen you,

I wonder,

Was the waiting was worth.

All for nothing,

All for nothing

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married

Evaluate the man you date and understand the man you married.

Many of us are found of evaluating the man we married, rather than the man we are dating! And that is so wrong! Well that is my opinion. I believe once you’re dating, that is the time to evaluating if this cute guy actually respects you.

Unfortunately when we’re dating we tend to focus on the gifts they shower us with, the ticking clock, our friends are all married, he is cute, and he is ready to settle down… why the wait? We lament to our selves! We pay no attention to what we’re settling with” So one month after the alter we start evaluating our husbands.

If he doesn’t respect you when you’re dating he won’t change over after the wedding. If that is what you said ‘I-do’ to, for whatever reasons you had, why are you stressed? I don’t mean that you take in all the trash he sends to you… all I’m saying is, evaluate the man you date, and understand the man you married.

You may not see all his bad characters, he can actually hide them away from you… but a bad guy won’t turn into a good guy overnight.

“What if am married to him already?” Am not married so I can’t claim to know it all, but am told ‘prayer works!’ Pray for him, ask God to work through him and do your part as a wife; understand him, support him, encourage him, and don’t try to criticize every little thing he does or raising your voice at him. However you can try to show him the danger in what he is doing.

What more can I say?
Happy Marriage!

When I see you

When I see you

When I see you

When I see you

Like a drop of oil spreading around
So does my heart move,
When I see you,
That is when I remember
How I treasure you.

Like a fragile glass,
Or may be like a little bad,
That is how I hold in my arms.

So close, and so deep,
My image in your eyes,
And yours in mine
Our souls meet.

I could stare at you all day long,
Those eyes, so white and bright
That smile, so wide and sincere
The cute dimples
I cherish your innocence.

Many things between us,
These happen,
When I see you.

Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

Could you be the one?

I’ve waited for all my life
For the one and only,
I read in bed time stories.

The one that can fill this heart of mine
With butterflies and bubbles of love
The one so handsome, inspiring,
Amazing, loving and caring.

I find you soft spoken and fun
My heart is over flowing with joy,
Yet great mysteries surround you.

I’m touched deeply
In a way I can’t explain
By the majestic embrace of arms

My soul charmed
And a glorious connection was made.
I am left speechless.

A moment so short lived,
With my heart out of my chest,
One question remains unanswered;
Could you be the one?
Or it’s too soon to tell?
