Beats of Heart

I dream of my lover

Oh how I dream of my lover

 ♦

This is how I know when he comes

My spirit and soul feel his presence

Suddenly, the air around me becomes still

I am aware of every gracious breath that journeys through my being

My heart feels like its melting into a pool of sweet ecstasy

I see him, our eyes lock and say “hello,… I love you”

While our souls embrace before our bodies meet in touch

♦ 

I dream of my lover

Oh how I dream of my lover

 ♦

This is how I know he is near

My anxieties and pain feel just a bit lighter as he whispers

“We can do this together”

“I’ll love you as long as I live”

“Hold my hand”

I meditate on the tender kisses we share

The days in the sun together

The rhythm of our dance together

I give you my promise

I’ll do what it takes for us to spend eternity in Paradise together

I love you forever, so help me God

♦ 

I dream of my lover

Oh how I dream of my lover

So love come kiss me like only you can

Come hold me like only you can

Come whisper to me like only you can

Surely God has put his finger on this one

♦ 

I dream of my lover

Oh how I dream of my lover

GRACE

18 Mar

 {Grace}: The Free and Unearned favor of God

Amazing Grace, how so Sweet…Sweet…Sweet

      Breathe it, Drink it, Eat it, Dance it, Sing it, Play it

      Walk it; Write it, Speak it, Hear it, Laugh it

      Sit in it, Sweat it, Cry it, Bleed it; Scratch into your soul

      Fix it in your eyes, Hold it tight; Seek it, Treasure it

       Meditate on it, Dream it, Live it, Share it

                 Love it

       Soak into my soul, wash over me, deep roots in,

       Wrap around me as my skin wraps, then…Transform me

       In the days when the crushing stones of worry, shame

       Pain, disappointment, weakness, dis-stress, unrest

       Unfaithfulness, sit in the very center seat of my heart…

       Grace is my Liberator, Rescuer, and Deliverer

                                                                                        Master it   

       In the days of rich Love, Joy, Hope, Peace, success, strength,

       Happiness…Grace is my boast, my show off, and my melody

       I look up at the stars tonight, as uncountable as they are,

       So is your Grace towards me oh God(ΑΩ), even as the sands of Earth.

I boldly humble myself before the Giver of Grace.

       Amazing Grace, how so Sweet…Sweet…Sweet…Hmmm…Sweet

Feast of Art

the brush of a painter preserves the image
the voice of a singer woos the emotions
the chords of a musician sways the body
the words of a poet arouses the soul
when goodly mingled, it is a feast of art

Hour Glass Lesson

15 Dec

**my version of one of my favorite lines

As the many sands of the hour-glass

So are the many moments of our lives

Passing through, and confined in the bowels of time

Until shattered by the striking arm of Eternity

The Men I’ve Known (**my view)

23 Nov
                                                                         image:aspienet

 Kevin…honey-glazed tongue, with sprinkles of cunning charm, quick eyes

Tim…A sense of passion with a dash of care-freeness, and air of sincerity

Leon…seemingly torn between personal desire and voices of expectation

Emeka…sensitivity coated with the appearance of a toughened exterior

Uzo…willingness for commitment, a fire suppressed within, a logical head

          The unknown man                        Passionate in stand

              True in spirit – Focused in vision            Brave in heart- Warm in embrace

Courageous in Love -Gentle in touch    Tender in kiss-Quietly confident

    The only man my heart will intimately yield to or not at all;

          To walk, talk, learn, laugh, cry

         A strengthened attraction

 Physical

 Spiritual

    Emotions

 Mind

Looking in

13 Oct

The desires within drive away the rest and stillness
They are hot and burning inside, and i sense them strong
Where have they come from? my imagination or the image
The image, the truest , purest, passionate form of who i am
Streams and currents of inspiriting inspiration sweeping the fragile form
Heart pounds rising, mind speeding almost numbingly and trance-like

Love, to love burns foremost, to be allowed to rule above all
The most beautiful and most powerful, that renews while transforming
Belief and hope wrestles, to keep the fire of life glowing…flaming
Firmly convinced of the goodness and  ability of all that is True and Light
Mastering the inhibitions is present too,some justified, others not
Some are welcome, others will pass, have to fade and be gone, Be Gone

Allowing the mind and spirit feast on images of loveliness, and truthfulness
Taking mental trips to beautiful and tranquil places the feet have not been yet
Musing on the only words that can speak calm to the disturbance and disorderliness
Quiet down in the Comforter of comforters, and seek the unequaled Presence of the Creator, of the Shaper, of God.

Worth High-lighting and Sharing

8 Sep

This song was written  and sang by a friend of mine( Rob McMichael) and i love the message so much that i decided to present it here

Who You Are(original song)—Video

Lyrics:

Words cannot exaggerate
Yet I cannot articulate
The wonder of who You are my God.

None compare in holiness
And by your word the worlds exist
I marvel at who You are my God.

I stand in awe of the grace of the King
The Lord of everything
who still loves a wretch like me.
I stand and sing of the love of the Lamb
Demanding all I am
Because he loves a wretch like me.

He loves more than we will know
The cross stands in time just to show
The glory of who You are my God

One day soon we will sing
And all creation gladly bring
Our worship for who You are my God

I stand in awe of the grace of the King
The Lord of everything
who still loves a wretch like me.
I stand and sing of the love of the Lamb
Demanding all I am
Because he loves a wretch like me.

Words cannot exaggerate
Yet I cannot articulate
The wonder of who You are my God.
