Romance Language

Such a great read.

"Love the Lord your God, and love one another. Love one another as he loves. Love with strength and purpose and passion and no matter what comes against you. Don't weaken. Stand against the darkness, and love. That's the way back into Eden. That's the way back to life."

On Wings of Love, Redeeming Love...

Filled

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained. Helen Keller

The world is not short of resource. The only reason we have shortage, is because we have hoarding and waste. Therefore we hold the solution. Rather than Connect the dots, we’d like to create our own, or sit upon someone else's. War is not the answer and neither is complacency, so instead of blowing up our efforts, our manpower and our money, when will we finally be able to use training facilities to train people on the streets and put them to work, and devote portions of our intelligence agencies to working with developing nations governments.

I never forget that I live in a house owned by all of the American people and that I have been given their trust. More importantly however than material gains will be the moral and spiritual value. We must be the great arsenal of democracy. FDR

'He jests at scars that never felt a wound,' (Romeo)

Persecution and trial - the testing agents of where we stand. God never gives us more than we can handle, just enough to see who we really are. His truth is ours for keeps.

Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. John 14:27. King of glory, here be found.

Burn baby, Burn

There's something in this world that light's everyone's fire.






In romance, as in spirituality, motives are selfless, driven from an authentic love for the other person. Seems we're designed to burn with passion, thus it would be most tragic for a person to know everything about God, but not know God... to know all the rules of spiritual marriage, and never walk the aisle.

There are some things which happen, that we never get over; once we've tasted we know; He is enough. I've been told that, if life in Christ is boring, look to find yourself again in Christ and never quit expecting enormous, miraculous, awesome things from God. Live it, and be blown away.

Soul-stilling in John 12.20, something sparks the soul, a passion and an urgency to see Jesus... His touch of salt will season. Jesus rubbed against the people, He did not preach at them. The people observed the confidence and understood... Peter and John had been with Jesus. Life speaks into life.

Drawing a Blank

The world is a book an those who do not travel only see one page. Aristotle

i write for the same reasons i travel... to reveal, to unwind, to connect...

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. Mark Twain

The Republic of Heaven

He will return when every nation has heard. 6,900 people groups remain, and then we shall exchange Heaven for a place, and eternity for time.

Unfinished Business

I love lists and letters!

Excess baggage sits heavily upon its owner, weighs us all down, and is paid for by all. I don’t want to have unfinished business, yet I sure do linger sooner than I thank people. Indebted, I can’t repay them, but rather must in turn pay someone else instead. As Gerardo says, pay it forward.

To, and write

One day she left all the words scattered around the floor
In disheveled stacks around the coffee mugs
So that she might step out to get some air.
It was night. The streets were charged.
You had to look both ways.
She walked, she looked,
Walked some more,
So far that she
Lost her way.

By the time she did make her way home to the words,
She had lost track of their meanings: she knew
What each meant in isolation, alone, but
Not what she could make them say
When she would line them up
In arrangements no one had
Ever before considered.
This was her gift,
But forgotten.

She looked around the room for a long time, like
Amnesia. She recognized her many things, the
Couch, the table, photogr…

All this untapped energy - makes me feel so free

Finally, I was able to sneak over to BookPeople and purchase the entire collection of Sabrina Ward Harrison masterpieces. Having these to peruse was longer awaited than I ever knew; like one who watched our childhood and recalls our history better than we can, you tapped me into a deep, familiar yet forgotten space in my soul. Thanks SAB.




The universal power of art, the sounds and images that bring us to life.



I am afraid to show you who I really am, because if I show you who I really am, you might not like it--and that's all I got. SAB

What we don't let out traps us. We think, No one else feels this way, I must be crazy. So we don't say anything. And we become enveloped by a deep loneliness, not knowing where our feelings come from or what to do with them. Why do I feel this way? SAB

I think God leaves me alone to let me find my own strength because no one else can give it to me. Sometimes it is very lonely. But I know the lonely times teach me the most. I must let go in ord…

Essence of Love

the people i find myself growing closest to are the very ones i hope to spend eternity with. What a blessing to be so nurtured, truly surrounded by angels.

At this time I’m most alive, experiencing things I cannot describe... When two hearts race, both win. I arrived here to rediscover and explore the things I love, now realizing my heart has been awakened and revealed much, pursued by a man who ran away with my heart. I pray he keeps running. My parachute. My shooting star.

The greatest gift, I now too have learned, is to truly love and be loved in return.

Sharing so much, and often when neither mouth is speaking. I treasure how much bigger our relationship is than one another, as if we’re each reaching high above our heads to elevate its existence; we’re living in a whole other dimension.

Thou ART

There is no art where there is no style, and there is no style where there is no harmony, and harmony comes from the individual.
- Oscar Wilde
