My child, my heart has loved you; for thousands of years. Before time was, I AM. Before your heart knew breath, My Love spoke… your name. Take hold of my everlasting love, let My Heart; show you the true breadth, of My Love. My child, don’t worry if you stumble; I got you. Those who are last now, will be first; when they truly know, My Love. I will never leave, My Love; will never forsake. Your heart beats so fast, your soul always racing; but child, what is your heart chasing? Chase after my heart, you will forever find; My Love… waiting. A thousand years for you, but a day… to me. Day after day, just know that; I got you. My Love hovers, let it surround your heart. Take off the blinders, the colorful promises. A love seen through rose colored glasses, does nothing… for a blinded heart. A pretty looking rainbow, is still just a mere reflection… of My Love. Let My Love shine in, through your heart and soul; for ten thousand years!
My child, let me take your heart, even higher. Oh, child; won’t you come a little deeper? All I ask, is just one step closer… to My Heart. My Love, will always be waiting. I can make time stand still, I can make your soul be still. I can make this happen, for a thousand years. Beauty, what I see in you; closeness, what I have for you. Won’t you let your heart be a glorious reflection, of My Love. Won’t you let My Love, be your refuge; and every day never doubt, that it will always be your Strength. So many want love, hearts were made to be loved; but what they were always meant to know, My Love. Hearts are always focused on the fall, forgetting that thousands of years ago. In the garden, Grace and Mercy was also there to show; My Love!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:11-13 NIV
Thirty three years, that’s how long; I’ve been driving… my Mrs Daisy, my May flower. Now I would never call her a back seat driver, shot gun; her love is right next to my heart. Oh, how I need her love near, so she can keep it real… close; whispers of love… In My Ear. You’re turning the wrong way… Captain, Obvious… ly, dear. I just wanted to hear your love speak… to my heart. Turn by turn, your love moves me; your attention to details… so sweet. This love has never been a bed of roses, but hearts forever in bloom. All roses have a stem… of problems, but the love for; should never be what withers away!
I spend all week working, but babe that will never mean. My heart isn’t also banking some time… deep within my soul. Just so my heart, can spend all those saved up hours with you. This world seems to be going crazy, so many hearts stuck… running ragged in the rat race. Zoom, zoom; but the question they need to ask, who’s zooming who? It’s not about how fast the heart goes, but how to appreciate each moment. For us, the drive is the getaway; a moment to slip away. Two hearts racing, but two souls at peace; cruising up the highway… called heaven. Oh girl, shhh… no need to say a word; I just want to hear the sweet music. Girl, that’s my jam; turn up the volume. I will never get tired, listening to the rhythm… of your beating heart. Let the music play, your love is still so groovy!
A little over thirty one years ago, I strapped my heart into the driver’s seat. Threw the rear view mirror out the window, grabbed hold of my destiny. Some thought our hearts were too young, so many said the drive; “#Wouldn’t Last!” They say, the first five years of a marriage… is the hardest. I have found in my thirty one year experience. The key, not just in the ignition. Not even about, what kind of gas is in the tank; but what is the true source… of the sustaining power? It’s not about steping on the gas, but if the heart truly knows how; to accelerate… the love? I believe, what help to fortify the love. When the heart chooses to focus, on true undistracted devotion… to God!
My love, my bride; thank you. When my mind is in a fog, the light hovers; but your love, also helps to steer my heart. I’m not always sure what will be the destination, but one thing I know; to let our hearts decide. A short trip… down memory lane, or what drives us… to keep our focused on forever? Your love is a fun ride, all the bumpy roads. Even the ups and downs; whoo… my heart still enjoys it all. Love isn’t about the distance, but the journey… together. Never about the road we choose, but the places the love takes our hearts. Love is a two way street, but my heart sees it only one way. I might be in the drivers seat, but we will always need Jesus… to take the wheel. His love, what drives our heart. He is the only one, that knows the way; to our final destination. When it’s time to go home, it will be you and me; homeward bound, together… Forever!
• My wife and I, have been driving together for thirty three years. We started as teenagers, then when we got married; and it was with our kids. The kids are all grown, and for last five or so years; we haven’t been doing drives. About a year or so, she suggested that we go on Sunday drives. At first I didn’t really want to, but then said yes. Now every summer, we go on Sunday drives. I pick a destination, and we go driving for about 3-4 hours! Have a wonderful weekend!
- This Letter is dedicated, to all my WordPress brothers. A special shout out, the two I featured in the piece!
Thank You, for loving on me; when my heart felt unloved. Thank You, for being my voice; when my heart just didn’t know what to say. Thank You, for being my defender; when my heart felt it was losing the fight. Thank You, for always being there; when my heart felt so alone. Thank You, for whispering words of love… into my soul. When my heart had lost the words, within a silent river. Deep down, my soul found The Love. But now my heart, needs to write A Letter; to say how Grateful!
For even when I couldn’t see it, Your love was working. Even when I may not have felt it, You’re always working… on my soul. You never stopped, Your love will never stop working; to change my heart… from within. All I can truly say, Thank You! Your love is teaching my heart the true art, Careful Meditation; Controlled Speech, what is… true Forgiveness. This letter is a moment, an opportunity to tell Your heart; Thank You, for the unwavering love!
Yours Truly, A Grateful Heart!
