Happy Valentines Day!
Love is hard, but beautiful and worth it.
I recently have been made aware of the concept of guarding your heart, which is so smart
but how do I get my brain and my common sense to rise up and overcome what has ruled them for so long?
How do I put my heart in its place?
I found this quote the other day, wrote it down and taped it on a big, bright green post it note to the front of my wallet:
"God can subdue your wild heart..."
I sure hope so.
I want a love that heals. A love that is truth. A love that is not scared or fleeting. Love based in integrity and not unanswered questions.
I want a love that comes like the waves of the ocean,
As the waves hit the beach they drag out the mess from the edge of the sand,
with each tumbling, white crested wave
the water washes clean a smooth, slate of sand
so fresh and new with possibilities and inspiration
In time, the water will wash away all iniquites and rough spots on that beach
not by force but by the faithfulness of returning and time.
I decided it's worth the wait.
( I am house sitting, they have a private beach, I love to watch the waves)
