Feels good to smile

image

 

Little hearts love me innocently.
Little hands hug me genuinely.
Little faces smile at me sweetly.
Little feet run to me eagerly.
Little bodies bring me joy unknowingly.
Little packages contain huge blessings daily.

Today is a good day…

image

The air is light today.
I can feel my lungs
Opening up to full capacity.
I can feel the oxygen
Coursing through my veins.

There’s a spring in my step,
My mind is alert and productive.
I sprinted to the bus,
Dashed to the train,
Poured my thoughts out
Which made room
For new ideas.

This awesome feeling
Is truly an incredible experience.
Days like these are to be treasured
And not taken for granted.
I feel blessed…

He’s not finished with me yet…

What is my purpose on this earth?
I’ve been struggling with this question for many years, and even more over the last 3 and a half yrs. I’ve taken to studying God’s word daily in an effort to better understand His teachings and instructions but I am still unsure what His plans are for my life.

This morning my daily devotional text message was from Romans chapter 8 and it read as follows:

Romans: 8.
28. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
30. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
31. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
32. He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
38. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Bible Offline

Though I’m still studying the book of Numbers, seeing this passage from Romans has given me a bit of hope especially as it comes in the beginning of a brand new year! Perhaps it was meant to remind me that I need to keep working on my faith for at times it may be weak. Perhaps it was meant to remind me that even if I don’t know what God has planned for me, unlike when He promised the children of Israel the ‘Land of Milk and Honey’, I still need to believe that whatever it is it will be something good — something beyond my wildest dreams.

So today I feel blessed to be reminded that God is up to ‘something’ and all I have to do is trust Him and wait for His wonderful surprise.

My year seems off to a wonderful start and I pray that yours is too.

Best wishes to you all…

Hugs,
A.

Finding strength in friendship…

img_0785-33

image

In the silence
When I can’t hear your voice
I try to imagine the direction
I should look to find you.

I’m not great
With such spacial orientations.
North,  South,  East, West?
They all seem to leave me puzzled.

But somehow, without fail,
I seem to find your heart
Because you are searching
For mine too.

Your soul reaches over
The many obstacles
Which others find daunting
And it finds mine.

I keep thinking
One day your eyes
Would dig too deep
And see unsightly parts of me,

And just like that
Your soul would finally stop
Searching for mine
And disappear into the shadows.

So I try to think of reasons
You shouldn’t look so closely,
But you’re not the superficial type
You live for depth, you’re not afraid.

You don’t mind getting messy
And it amazes me
That you aren’t deterred
By the state of my garden.

You’re willing to help me
Till the stubborn soil
To soften and mulch,
To plant new seeds of love.

Like the seasons
My Spring will soon come.
And hopefully,  those seeds
Will bloom into something wonderful.

So I hope you’ll stick around
To bear witness to your handiwork,
To see how much I’ve grown
Because of you.

Song

Meant to be

image

 

One day I said
a pray of pain,
asking God, from my heart,
to erase your name.

Instead, I was consumed
with so much love,
the feelings I’ve tried to avoid
have doubled somehow.

Is this some weird test,
to make me crazy?
Or am I trying to fight
something that was meant to be.

Eventually time will tell
I suppose,
but for right now
Only God knows…

Moment of clarity

image

 

The truth is,
My insecurities caused me
to let people into my life
who were unhealthy for my wellbeing.

My young-adult, low self-esteem
clouded my judgment.
My needs, unmet as a child,
left a void I sought to fill relentlessly.

There was no love to be found
in any of the places I looked.
Thirty years of searching
makes the heart a little weary.

The candle of hope
dwindles with each passing decade.
The truth is,
My insecurities were by curse.

This was a tough lesson to learn.
I’ve always wondered
what I was doing wrong
but the answers never came.

I’ve grown significantly since then,
and I understand better
who I am and what I deserve.
I finally had a moment of clarity today.

Faking it

image

 

They want me to pretend that all is well.
They want me to put on a show.
They don’t want to hear the truth.
They want me to earn my paycheck by telling lies.

I can’t sell something I don’t believe in.
I can’t fake my enthusiasm.
I can’t keep up this act for much longer.
I’m convinced I’m in the wrong profession.
It’s definitely time to move on.

I saw you in my dreams

image

 

I hardly ever dream these days
So imagine my surprise,
To see you there smiling handsomely
With that twinkle in your eye.

Dumbfounded I stood frozen
As you dined with someone else,
She seemed to be your lady,
Horrified, my feet felt like lead.

My heart sank when you said,
“Hi, come say hello to my girlfriend! ”
To rub your happiness in my face like that
Was cruel since we used to be an item.

I stood there trying to smile and talk
Wishing the ground would swallow me whole,
Then looked at my watch as I explained,
I really had to rush to work.

To see you in my dreams like this
Isn’t fun at all to picture.
I hope this never happens again
Or is this a prediction of the future?

Nothing accomplished

image

 

Trying to focus.
Mind keeps drifting.
Eyes keep closing.
Body keeps going limp.

Nothing written.
Earlier ideas forgotten.
Should have made a note.
Was too busy.

Thoughts jumbled.
Too many distractions.
Thinking of things I shouldn’t.
Bottled up emotions suffocate me.

I don’t need this.
Wish I could make it stop.
Tired of crying.
It hurts.
