Wedding bells

10 Aug

Not my own, however…I went to a wedding today. I went there with every intention of just going thru the motions and drudging my way thru yet another ceremony. I was also waiting for the barage of questions: “When are you getting married?” or “Are you going to be next?” I only heard it about 3 times, which was a lot less than I expected. But I couldn’t help but just be awed by the wedding; it was just beautiful. The love that the young couple share just seemed to be God-given. Everything was gorgeous from her gown, to the flowers, to the candles, their family, and more. The minister, my former minister, performed a great ceremony. No fluff, and that’s how I think it should be. So, I said all that to say that love was in the air and I definitely caught wind of it. My hope and faith in love and marriage was definitely restored today. With God on my side, I know that He’ll bless me with the right one soon. I’m just going to be prayerful and patient. I’m also going to pray that I’ll be the right one for someone else when the time comes. Good night


Only for a season

3 Aug

Lately, I’ve been thinking about how sometimes people come into your life your only a short time, a season. Then suddenly they are gone. It reminds me of what I’ve read in Iyanla Vanzant’s book “Acts of Faith.”

When someone is in your life for a reason, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed outwardly or inwardly. They have come to assist you through a difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually. They may seem like a godsend, and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be. Then, without any wrongdoing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. Sometimes they act up or out and force you to take a stand. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled; their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and it is now time to move on. Next!
