He sends me flowers.
We chat for hours.
He tells me how beautiful I am.
He listens intently.
He pursues me relentlessly.
He reminds me how much he loves me.
He keeps my heart safe.
We explore dreams together.
He laughs with pleasure over me.
He provides for me a banquet of all things good.
He offers wisdom when I don’t understand.
He weeps when I am trodden down.
He writes to me with divine love letters.
We sing praises night and day.
He whispers words of courage and peace to me.
He shares his heart of tenderness and grace.
He rejoices over me to his father.
He invites me to be a part of his family.
He is like no other.
We have a relationship for all eternity.
He is the one who sacrificed all for me.
He is my greatest counsellor and friend.
He touches me and makes me whole.
He is my passionate defender with might and strength.
He is my Beloved and I am his.
We both are eager for that grand and glorious day.
He will gather me to his home where forever I will be.
This HE of which I write
This HE of which I praise
is none other than Jesus, my Lord and Savior.
The first time that I said goodbye,
it was as if my body shredded to pieces.
Muscles ripped from bones,
and marrow leached out upon the dry ground.
The second time that I said goodbye,
it was if my mind exploded with anger.
Heart pounded furiously,
and condemnation and shame flooded in.
Time has passed by the hands of God,
and it has been HIS hands drying the tears.
Promises of old have become new,
as HIS Word abides within.
Yea though within a defining moment,
a purposeful parting could not be denied.
Each and every day brings a new goodbye,
as if you are still with me body, mind and soul.
In the mundane duties of the morning, we set ourselves on a path.
By day’s end, will we be closer to where we planned on going?
Did we tick off all the boxes that we had listed on our to-do list?
We accomplished whatever it was that we applied our time and effort to.
With each tick-tock in the movement of time we make our choices for life.
Was the marking of time in life evidence of wisdom, of grace and of love?
One element without the other, doesn’t it lead us to a place of no return?
Do not get lost in a journey where time and decisions become our enemy.
