Pinterest Perfect

She stared out the window, and she thought about love. She longed to be filled with the bliss of it all, matching the picture she had of her life. It was Pinterest perfect style, she was searching for the best, and settling for less when she knew it wouldn’t come.

Wondering why nothing matched her perfect mental image, she listened to the rain as it patterned on the window. Night after night, and fight after fight, she wondered why the blessing of God hadn’t fallen on her marriage.

Days went by as her hope faded out, until at last the words of wisdom were spoken:

“Marriage is not about serving yourself, about looking for fulfillment in your Pinterest Perfect life. It’s about discovering your flaws, and an extension of Gods grace, forgiving yourself, and loving your spouse. So when you feel empty, look to God for fulfillment; and in your marriage be running toward Him.”

Envy Over Coffee

Envy over coffee
Out the window,
Down the street.

Seeing lives of stars
And matches made in heaven.

Is my life like that?
I ask as I sip.
Do they live in fear
That were meaningless too?

Walks in the park,
Framing perfect endings;
I envy over coffee,
Losing hope in my life.

Now my coffee has run dry.
