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.”

A Gift of a Companion

Step

lonely.

Step

hopeless.

Step…
Wait.

Fall on my knees,
Pray for God’s help,
“Give me a life
Worth living and serving.
Friends to invest in
Who will invest in me back.
Abba, please help me,
Restore me to life.”

Step
step
better.

Step

friend.

Step

life.

Step.

Laughter and love,
A journey to remember,
Growth in God,
A friendship full of blessing.
God answers prayer,
My best friend for life.
Thank you for memories
I couldn’t live without.

One True Love

Handed a ring
At the young age of twelve,
“Give your heart over to God,”
And she thought
It made sense.

But growing up in this world
Gave way to peer pressure,
“You need a man”
“Don’t wait around for God.”

So the years went by
And the ring was forgotten,
But boy after boy
She felt more and more lonely.

Then slowly but surely
The meaning came back,
“Give your heat to God,
the one above this world.”

So she turned her focus
And put her eyes back on God,
The work was more difficult
But the reward would be worth it.

Only her One True Love
Was the One that she needed.

Seasons Change

Happy smiles run by, 

Ice cream dripping

In the sun,

Lemonade and glee

Abound by the pool.

 

No school to distract

We enjoy all the love,

But alas, it must end

And with a breeze

It’s now fall. 

 

Sweaters and leggings,

Hot chocolate, and tea,

It’s brisk all around

And pumpkins abound.

 

The ghouls come to haunt

Followed closely by turkeys,

Costumes and food

Distract us from work.

 

And then falls the snow,

Bringing close to the fall.

Carols are sung,

And we relax by the fire. 

 

Families reunited, 

Giving gifts filled with love.

Joy and hope

Make the memories of a lifetime.

 

The cold now drags on

As the cycle starts again.

New semester, new vows,

A new year of life. 

 

The sun then peaks out

From behind all the cold.

Flowers grow up, 

And we return outside

To frolic in the fields. 

 

New friendships are made,

Until at last the summer returns. 

 

Seasons change

And time wares ever on

Yet love remains constant

Where does your love come from?

Don’t Forget

Don’t forget

All the times that we had,

The memories we built,

The words that we shared;

The day we held hands,

The times we just talked,

the times that we didn’t ,

the secrets we shared

When the world was just right.

We were wrapped in the arms of ignorance

Felling the blissful happiness of two  children in love.

It wasn’t our fault,

It wasn’t meant to be,

We came out all right,

We’re stronger for it.

Don’t forget.

In His Arms

My attempt at a slam poem. Thoughts?

 

Why do I feel

inadequate

empty

impure 

imperfect

like a screw up

 

Why am i 

alone

unsatisfied

longing for more

always searching

 

Where is

my success

my love 

my perfect life that every American is supposed to be guaranteed?

Did I lose it?

 

No. 

No, it’s standing here waiting

With open hands

With a blanket of love

to cover my impurities

my inadequacies 

my emptiness 

my longing.

 

HE is here

HE has always been here

HE created me,

HE created my salvation

HE made me so that I wouldn’t fit anywhere but His arms.

 

Those arms.

Those arms that bring

peace

love 

joyfulness

patience

 

The virtues we long for

Wrapped up in His arms.

Why did it take me so long to find Him?

 

Why was I looking

in school

in media

in friends 

in relationships

When all I had to do

Was turn around.

 

And my search was ended

In His arms.

New Love

Butterflies flutter

Creating intense passion

And I start to blush
