Thoughts of you

I’ve been thinking deeply about you…
My heart is beating so hard its about to tear my chest open
I’ve been trying to imagine a life without you
My mind tells me its possible
But my heart says it would be fatal
I dont know who to trust…
Am I crazy??
Crazy to think I have a claim on you?

Happy ever always 

Happy endings? Those don’t exist in real life. Somehow we tend to believe  when we reach a certain point in our lives we will finally be happy and all will be prefect. Just like in the fairy tales when the princess defeats the evil queen against all odds and lives “happily ever after” with her prince – we think we’ll only be happy when we’ve achieved/overcome certain things. I’ll be happy when I pass grad school, I’ll be happy when I get my dream job, I’ll be happy when I  make enough money, I’ll be happy once I get married, I’ll be happy once I have kids, I’ll be happy when I do this and that and the list goes on forever.

Happiness is not a destination…it’s in the journey. The saying should be “happy ever always”. You won’t be happy “after” whatever it is you think you need to do…because the goal post always moves. Once you’ve achieved one thing you’ll move to the next – are you gonna be unhappy in between these destinations? Don’t fall into that trap. The joy is in the journey…The destinations only add to the joy that already exists! Seek out the joy in every moment…it’s always there.

Here’s to happy ever always!

How do I walk away

How do I walk away
How do I leave you behind
I dont know how to pretend
Pretend you don’t exist
Pretend I don’t love you…
Holding on to you seems foolish
But letting go feels illogical
How do I let you go when every fibre in my being tells me you are mine
Mine to me
How do I abandon these memories when thoughts of you so easily invade my mind
How do I love another when my heart is filled with your essence
Tell me
How do I walk away
How do I leave you behind

Blessed a million times over

I have been blessed…
Blessed a million times over
With unconditional love
Unfailing love
Perfect love…
Love that transcends life itself
Love provided by a Father who so loved the world He gave His only begotten son.
Oh what joy fills my heart…that even in the midst of a fallen world I still find peace love and happiness.
I have been blessed with a gift no one can ever take away…
Jesus Christ my Saviour

See inside my soul

Look into my eyes
See inside my soul
Tell me…
Do you see what I see?
I am bare before you…
Lose yourself inside me
Don’t fight these raging waves that pull you in
You’re safe in my storm
Drown in this sea of intensity
Drink my love
Breathe my passion…
See inside my soul
Clothe this naked heart.
