Ones that I’m no longer upset about

Ones that I’m able to smile about

I remember

Now I am okay

Now I am not sad

Frustrated or angry

It’s true

I’m alright

They say I am free now

[heard songs from Bob Marley playing in the subway station.]


Still Linger

Though you’re not here
Your kisses still linger

So I watched a movie out in theaters now titled Far From The Madding Crowd.  I’m still not sure about a movie title such as that one, but from it my boyfriend and I agree that love is dramatic.

Even God’s love. Because while we were still sinners Christ died for us. But God is love and to us His love  is big, dramatic and out of this world!
But to You Lord I wonder, is it just love?
Just love. Love as You know it.

Also had great pizza: a regular slice and a basil slice in Kew Gardens at Dinys.

Follow Up: When Two Become One

I just posted a poem about when two people become one in marriage. Sure, people become one by having sex with whomever and whenever they want, but that is not what l’m talking about here.

The poem was written when I really thought about all the changes that happen to two individuals once they commit to marriage. Being unmarried, my point of view comes from taking notice of those who are. So yeah, I’m not married, yet, but would like to be. The timing and everything else I pray about and leave in God’s hands.

Anyway, since I’m not married yet, I’d like to hear from those of you who are. 🙂

If you are married, what thoughts would you add to the poem? (No worries, it doesn’t have to be poetic. 🙂 )

If you’d like to share, what were your experiences while being with the one you are married to before you were married?

Is there anything note worthy about the times you and your, now, spouse discussed about or during your first few years of marriage?

When Two Become One

Two who were once strangers
Now live together in a home
Just the two, who have become friends Then companions
Now they are one,

Together they bring with them old traditions
Over time they will make new traditions To mix with the old
They bring with them
All they have learned from where they We’re before

They are no longer strangers
They are…

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. Genesis 2:24

Life is Tough

In this moment my life is tough
In this moment I recognize that I am not the only one going through a tough life

I am a believer in Christ Jesus
I do believe that what Joel Osteen shared on Facebook
The thing I am praying to get out of
Can be the very place
Where God is doing a work in me

Have I been praying?
Praying is
Communicating with God
I’ve been telling Him I want out!

Certainly not out of life

It’s amazing how much I appreciate life
I am grateful
And thankful
Jesus, You delivered me from wanting to end my life

Life is a gift
My heart just needs a jumpstart
To joyfully shout –
Because it is another day to
Live, Breathe, & soak in the warmth of Your sun

Truly, Father, I thank You for life in me

Now I never desire to take my life away
Never, never, never
Nor the anyone else

Help me Father,
In Jesus’ name
To remember that I can give life
Through my words
And may I only do it in
Your strength
Because if I do it in my own strength
I will become weak and weary

You alone are God
Though I blew up in anger
You still love me

The lie was, “How could you still love me?”
The Truth is
You still do
Because you told me that Your love for me is
Never ending

And so, with this
My heart has been softened

Prayer/poem of thanks

November 25, 2010

Thank You, God for forgiving me, and thank You for Your patience with me.

Because I was born again in You I am able to put away my old actions, thoughts,  and behaviors. I am able to forgive as You have forgiven me, and I am able to love You as You love me – although not (yet) to the fullest.

Thank You, God for your love that penetrates and heals all wounded, bruised, and broken hearts. Your love God is the strongest there is. It heals past hurts, and present hurts; it softens past and present pains.

You turned my wailing into dancing; You removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing to You and not be silent. O Lord, my God I will give you thanks forever(Psalm 30:11-12).
