THE CONCLUSION

GIRL ::

A moment of hesitation,
A heart full of affection,
Crossed thoughts… Confusion,
A need for a conclusion,
I need to say something, yet no words come to mind…
He just spoke his heart, I just stand there blank…
It’s simple really, he puts me… on a pedestal… I don’t deserve to be up so tall.
With him I wear a halo, from the moment he says ‘hallo’
I want to be his imperfect,
Perfectly perfecting our perfect…
So, letā€™s do this together… Don’t make it about how to ‘get-her’
What do you say?
Or even better, let’s face the ONE who’s perfect,
What does HE have to say?

A Valentineā€™s Day Cypher – Part 3

Continued from Part 2…

EDNA ::

Silence…
He stands there, staring
He has that look in his eye…
The one that melts the words in my mouth
Yes that one… That has my heart beating to his rhythm,
The kind that strengthens my will, yet weakens my knees…
The type that strings a cold sweat down my back…
The look that starts thought journeys in my head…
I watch as he spaces-out, as his mind takes him away…
I wonder what goes on in there… Wonder if he’s wondering the wonder that is us…
I feel strangely at ease, comfort in my soul…
His speaks to mine… His taking mine.
He has my mind… and now my heart.
This he knows not.
Because I don’t say a word…
I just stand there.. exemplifying the word speechless.

Blog Break (12 Feb 13)

Enrich your mind and spur your heart with these three great reads today:

  1. In THE ABUNDANCE OF GIVING, John MacArthur argues that, while there are many reasons to look forward to going to church every Sunday,Ā the offering is usually not at the top of our lists. Yet, it is the one thing that should be at the top. “If we really understand Scriptureā€”particularly some specific promises from Jesusā€”the thing you should look forward to the most is the offering. Godā€™s Word clearly teaches that our giving is actually a direct pipeline to His blessings.”
  2. Do you find your work monotonous and boring? GRACE FOR MONOTONOUS WORK is an insightful read, which explores the fact that much of what God does every day is monotonous. Inspired by G.K Chesterton and others, Andre Yee exhorts us to glorify God in repetitive work. “We desperately need new eyes and hearts for the monotonous aspects of our daily work. We need new eyes to see our work in light of Godā€™s mandate to Adam and Eve to ā€œfill the earth and subdue itā€”
  3. Lastly, in BLACKBOARD PRIESTHOOD, R. C. Sproul Jr. exposes the folly of idolizing education as the ultimate solution to humanity’s problems. “Our problem is not that we are stupid, but that we are seekers of pleasure. Our problem is that we are foolish, and thus foolish enough to believe we can educate ourselves better.”

Have a blessed Tuesday, friends. šŸ™‚

EDNA ::

The cool breeze blows away the last of light…
I look around and he is nowhere in sight…
I wasn’t ready for this. I wasn’t prepared for him not showing up.
As I go through the same ritual as every evening…
At my porch… watching as the beauty of sunset at last fade into dark…
Disappointment sets in,
Coating the last of day on my saddened heavy heart… This can’t be!
I must be dreaming….
No! this is just one of those fictionated almost real nightmares!
So I’ll go for a walk… just to clear my head.
Think… how to go on… collect my thoughts, clean out my closet of dreams, Hate the love I have for him…
I have to do something, or I’ll go crazy!
Rejection, rejection, rejection, my worst fear… a reality!?
Eyes fixed on the ground, lips quivering, balancing tears… sharp breath intakes… I walk on
Only when someone bumps into me do I look up…
And see him, coming towards me…
Looking uncertain… certainly looking at me…
HE CAME! Continue reading A Valentine’s Day Cypher – Part 2
