As women, people like to label you; categorize you. When you’re young and single, they label you with words like; Hot, Sexy, Fearless. When a woman is older, married and have kids; you become far more than just a sticker price. The labels seen only through the lens of the eyes, but the heart is where the true beauty lies; into you, that’s what they need to see. A woman will never loose the label used to describe her youth, they just simply age like fine wine. Aging heightens the beauty; maturing is what defines the essence within!
As men, we absolutely need to know how to appreciate the true essence. Essence is defined as: An intrinsic nature. The indispensable quality that serve to characterize; that used to identify something, someone. It’s the most important ingredient, the crucial element. The inherent, unchanging nature; A Mother!
Sure, outer beauty is nice to have, but a woman is defined by her true beauty; the essence within. What really makes a woman truly special, is the definition that radiates from within. This label that I speak of, is that of a Mother; a label that speaks of Love, and true Strength. A Mother looks after the home, but that doesn’t define her. She nurtures her kids, with all the love within her soul. All while working to help support the family. A mother’s love; unwavering love!
When you’re young you may be able to turn a few heads, and be admired for your outer beauty. But when a woman truly knows her Worth, she doesn’t need to turn heads; she has learned how to inspire a generation, with her heart. She has truly realized that she is a SUPERWOMAN; with the ability to even stop hearts, with just her presence!
Mothers, the label; scratch that. You have a title; built on Strength, but the foundation is Courage. The strength to be, with the courage that is; flawless. Mothers, I Celebrate You this day, and every day. Don’t let any label define you, it’s a Title that best Describes You; A Woman!
Your love can truly melt my cold, insensitive heart, with just a gaze of those beautiful eyes; you must truly be a Superwoman? You’re a simple woman, but I just love your incredible strength; you’re my Superwoman. Even when I didn’t realize I had traces of kryptonite protruding from within the crevices of my heart. The strength of your love was still so strong; it had the ability to render my foolish heart absolutely powerless. You are truly a Superwoman, and my heart is simply glowing; just being in your presence!
Beyond the surface no one in this world truly knows who you are, they just don’t see you the way I do. You’re more than just a mother and a wife. They just can’t see it, they just can’t see the strength within. So how could they ever possibly know that you’re my Superwoman? Woman you are absolutely super, but more than even that; you’re an exceptional person, through and through. Super is my way of saying, that you’re more than just a woman; you’re also my lady. Superwoman your love is stronger than my words could ever articulate; your love is also a tower of strength. I couldn’t even leap over it in a single bound!
Superwoman, my love is an unstoppable locomotive; but my heart just can’t seem to outrun your love. Woman, your love is always there to rescue my heart; whenever I find myself in absolute need. How do you continue to do this incredible feat time after time? Superwoman you’re so fly, I saw your love from a distance. It was seen in the horizon, but it was first felt deep within my heart; your strength is truly remarkable. So let me ask you this question, do you ever forget your own thoughts, just looking into my eyes? Has my love even left you speechless; whenever you remove your glasses, and look keenly into the depth of my soul?
Woman, it didn’t take a lifetime for your love to find me. But you better believe that it’s going to take the rest of this life; to prove that I still deserve every bit of your love. To show you how Super I truly think you are. Superwoman, I know that you could never really appreciate me; more than I truly appreciate how special you are. You’re absolutely one of a kind, you don’t need to hide your heart behind your glasses. I prayed for a woman, but instead I got a Superwoman!
Woman I love you, very much in love with you; my world needs you. Woman you will never have to rescue my soul. Just allow the radiance within my love, to be a source of strength; that can rely on to power your heart, day after day!

Well, to tell you the truth, I’m not really a big fan of social media. So why blogging you ask; 🤔 great question. Well it all started in 1968, wait; scratch that, wrong story. 😊
Seriously folks, I started blogging because my heart had a story to tell. I’ve been writing for about eight plus years now. For the past few years my family and friends have been asking me to put what I’ve been writing out in different forms. I didn’t feel that it was the right time, I feel lead that the time is now.

I used to try to hide my heart from Your love, but You would know just how to find it; maybe because Your love was at the center of my heart. Sometimes I’ve even turned my back, but Your love was still so relentless. You clearly saw that I had a foolish heart, my heart could never truly hide from Your love. I tried to avoid Your touch, but could never avoid Your presence. Your love became my heart, the very moment I gave it to You. There’s no need for You to seek, my heart can no longer hide; Your love is my heart!
Hide and seek is a game that kids play. Passion, desire, love; they play endlessly within my heart. They may hide, but Your love forever seeks; my heart is Yours. My heart wants to forever brag and boast, that Your love has become my everything. The more I seek, the more of You I find. The more I love, the more reasons a want to love. I don’t want to ever hide my heart, not when Your love has been my hearts closest friend; my heart is never alone. I will never again hide my heart, it’s the only thing Your love seeks!
I will seek You first, seek You faithfully, but seek Your love wholeheartedly. Just so my heart can forever be found, enjoying the presence of Your loving embrace. If You were to ever hide Your love, I will seek Your face. If You were to ever hide Your face, then I will seek Your heart; to forever have Your love. A heart will never truly know You, until that heart stops hiding; don’t ever hide Your love from my heart. Hide and seek was a game my heart used to play; tag I’m it; a heart forever in need of Your love!
Let me paint you a picture, you might not see it; this is a masterpiece. With just a simple glance, my heart started displaying colors; love was being painted, upon the canvas of my heart. That’s all it took, for my heart to be captured within this portrait; a masterpiece!
Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot of imperfections within this picture. Trust me, with each gentle stroke; the colors of love were becoming very clear. The light of love was being reflected, throughout my heart. The magnificent kisses of love, they too became a part of this artistry. Don’t tell me that this is not a portrait, this is a masterpiece; I’m sure!
This love has given my heart a freedom, this love has showed my heart joy. With all the countless ways this love paints upon my heart, all the ways my heart can’t even make clear to you; but together two hearts are becoming a true masterpiece. Just know that God is working, working to help make this masterpiece a display; a reflection of His love!
The beauty of this love is etched upon my heart, does it show; that the brush is nestled forever against my heart? This is not a lovely fairy tale, it will never be a picture of perfection. A work of art, my heart is just painting you the picture. The picture will never truly be complete; it’s been so many years, but my heart thinks this portrait is truly breathtaking!
Perfect; well mate, my soul sees it with a heart wide open. This is a picture of love, that much my heart knows to be true; a masterpiece. My heart is the canvas, God’s love is the brush. Hon, continue to paint my heart; now and forever, with your love!
We’ve all been hurt, some of us can still even feel the pain. Scars fade, the pain goes away; if you let go, and let God. Give God your pain, don’t be ashamed to show Him your scars; there’s a locker. Sure, I know it’s easier said than done, but what’s the alternative? Just let it sit within your heart, and fester; until something becomes truly rotten, but it turns out to be your soul? Life is a journey, the path may not be easy. The journey can be sometimes short, don’t waist the moments looking back. Let it be, ashes to ashes; dust yourself off. The journeys not over, until Him face to face. His love will always, and forever be the final destination!
Let me tell you about my heart, may it be an inspiration. My journey has been far from easy, but it has truly made my heart stronger. My heart has been called, let your heart be one of the chosen; to be good, and truly faithful. My desire is to have a heart like David. It didn’t matter what David faced, he held true to his faith; in God. Even when he could have taken Sauls life, he waited for God to promote him; the hurt was placed within the locker!
I want my faith to be as bold as Job, he said; “though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him.” He lost every single thing he had, but yet his faithful heart; was secure within his God. That just blows my mind; curse God, die, wasn’t an option, not even a second thought for Job. What a great faith to truly behold, the hurt, the pain, the suffering; placed within his locker!
My friends, God’s got it; God’s got you, right in the palm of His hands. Put the hurt, the pain, put your trust; in Him who is able. His love is the key, He has a locker with your name on it. Give your hurt to Jesus, let His love be your comfort!
