Mesmerized 35

***

He was mesmerized
by her beauty
and gave her
whatever she wanted.

She was mesmerized
by his wealth
and pretended
to love him.

Sadly,
neither were happy
because
money cannot buy love.

Finding Peace…

IMG_168748210801545

Surviving adversity requires strength. Where your strength comes from is entirely up to you, however, mine comes from God.

Psalms Chapter 121

1 (A Song of degrees.) I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help [cometh] from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

Of late I’ve been experiencing a sense of peace and calm that I haven’t felt in a very long time — so long that it was almost unrecognizable —  I thought I was ill!  But then, when no symptoms of illness presented and I realized my attitude in certain situations was different than normal, I began to understand what was happening — I was changing!

Remember how scared, out of place and disoriented you felt the first week at your new job? But when you finally started figuring things out the tension subsided and you started to settle in and feel more comfortable? Well that sense of comfort is what I’m feeling right now. The pieces are finally starting to fit together, I am finally understanding the role I’m supposed to play and I feel less overwhelmed by my responsibilities. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief for I have found a sense of peace.

Psalms Chapter 30

11 Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12 To the end that [my] glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Thank you God for bestowing this mercy upon me. I am forever grateful!

Feels like I’m Floating …

holding hot chocolate

I smiled today, not because I needed to pretend to be happy but because I actually was! There was a sense of peace and calm surrounding me — my troubles seemed to fade effortlessly away. I looked out to the sea but the rain was in the way, so I looked at the rain.

The sound, ever so soothing, brought back fond memories of my childhood. No school, just home under the covers. A day to spend in bed reading a good book, napping or watching movies. Trips to the kitchen, slow but deliberate, are to retrieve comfort foods: hot chocolate, soup, popcorn or what ever else that was easy to bring back to the bedroom or to the sofa to make the lazy day one to remember.

I smiled today, because I didn’t have to brave the elements or feel rushed or overwhelmed. Instead I was able to sit still and just be. I have been longing for moments like these for some time and I’m so glad they are finally becoming a reality.

I smiled today because I’m free to feel however I want just for me — feels like I’m floating as a leaf downstream; not fighting the currents, just willingly going along for the ride.

Happy today

IMG_169053396710491

Sounds of laughter
Ripple through the air.
Tickled bellies
Send arms and legs
Flailing everywhere.

Her giggles are electric
Inevitably contagious.
She screams,  “More mommy,  more!”
The moment is pure and precious.

We roll and tumble
All over the floor.
The dog is jealous,
She jumps and paws.

This memory is one
I hope to never forget;
Hugs,  kisses and tickles
For my munchkin and pet.

The Happiness Tag

Image source: Digital Art by Moylom Enterprises

Hi friends,

I’ve just been nominated by M over at https://emotionsoflife2016.wordpress.com/2016/ to do the happiness tag.

Thank you so much for nominating me. I’m extremely honored. Please check out his awesome blog.

In case you haven’t heard about the tag yet, the rules are simple:

1. Name 5 things that make you happy
2. Name 5 songs that make you happy
3. Nominate 5 bloggers to continue the tag

5 Things that make me Happy–

1 . Being a mom: I wanted to give to my kids the things and love I never got in my childhood. Unfortunately, I missed out on a portion of that with my older kids (now 19 and 21), so now I’m making up for all that loss with my munchkin (now 4).  I’m happy to be given a second chance of sorts. I see it as a huge blessing.

2 . Nature – Immersing myself in nature allows me to feel free while being grounded enough to know that I am but a spec in the master plan of the Creator.

3 . Music– All kinds/genres speak to me in different ways. I can’t survive without music. It fuels me, soothes me, heels me, elevates me, excites me, speaks to me.

4 . God– without Him one can’t truly be happy. God is love, He is peace, He is my safe haven, my anchor, my strength. He is the only one who can give us joy. It is when we understand the magnitude of His love do we fully comprehend how amazing it is just to be alive. With joy comes contentment and one’s heart is simply full and overflowing. One cannot contain such joy it must be shared.

5. Love – without love existence on this earth would be cold and meaningless. Love was not meant to be contained but shared. Love makes me happy and I can’t help but want that happiness for others as well.

5 Songs that make me Happy-

I actually have a Playlist called “Happy.Dance” so here are 5 songs from that list:

1 . Let It Out by Switchfoot

2 . Thank God For Something by Hawk Nelson

3.  Hey Mama by Mat Kearney

4 . Gang of Rhythm by Walk Off the Earth

5 . Til The Day I Die by TobyMac

 

NOMINEES

Since Inner Ramblings Boulevard just participated in the Liebster Award challenge, I’ve decided not to select nominees this time,  instead I’ll let anyone reading this who wants to participate feel free to do so. Just link back to this post so I know you’ve decided to play along.

Hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about me. Have a great week!

Hugs,

A.

Your stare

Yahoo images: marriedpeopleproblems.com
Yahoo images: marriedpeopleproblems.com

I saw you standing there
Staring longingly at her.
Your eyes beamed;
Your face bright;
Your lips smiled
As you watched her
Dancing in the night.

It warmed my heart
To see such love,
Even after 20 years.
It gave me hope
That perhaps, just perhaps,
I too may find such love one day
Of one who can love so purely.

She never saw you stare;
She never saw you beam;
She never saw you smile,
But she knew you were there, close by.

Then finally she found your eyes;
She beckoned you to join her —
To dance the night away with her.
And when you refused,
Pointing to your two left feet,
She came to get you.
She didn’t care
She just wanted you
To be by her side —
To share her joy —
To show the world her prize!

And so, you obliged
And danced with your bride —
Your queen of 20 years!
She beamed;
She smiled;
She melted in your arms;
Then she shared your stare…
