A Happy Moment

A happy moment… just what is a happy moment?
Is it a moment when you feel peaceful and secure?
When you feel as though you could sail in slow motion for days,
Upon waters as blue as the ocean,
With a shimmer of a crystal sea,
As a glorious breeze blows through your hair,
And tickles your flesh?
Is it a moment the world seems to smile with you,
And children laugh and play for hours,
As the creatures of God’s earth
Symphonize in melodious harmony,
Within the beauty of earth’s nature,
And lovers walk hand in hand,
As they watch families share in joy?
A happy moment can be so many things,
In so many ways and places.
It can be the treasure your heart seeks.
A happy moment is us together,
You loving me,
Me loving you,
Us loving God,
And God loving us.
When God is a part of what we are,
He is not an outsider to our love.
When God is what we live for to share,
That is a happy moment for me.
Thank you for sharing this happy moment with me.
I pray we share many more together… with God.

So Refreshing… A True Gift From God

From the moment I first spoke with you God was present.

He was a part of our encounter.

I called for prayer and praise,

And you were with ready with honor and servancy

For the Lord we share as God.

Jesus allowed His love to flow through two Christian souls,

And brought us together for a moment of holiness.

Praise God!!

 

It turns out you are single as well.

Being I came out of a bad relationship just recently,

It is so refreshing… a true gift from God!

All I really needed to know

Was that there really is someone like you out there.

Whether we ever date or not really doesn’t matter.

Just to have talked with you one night,

And know that God does have men like you

Made me realize I can’t give up on God like that.

 

I was so broken… my faith damaged.

I just couldn’t believe that God has someone for  me.

That maybe my expectations were too high.

Even if you’re not the one,

I know my expectations (wanting to wait until marriage)

Are exactly where God wants them to be…

As high as He is!!

Praise God for your Holy being!
