“Sometimes we lose things before we have them” - Rob Thomas
Sometimes we think we “have them” .. but then they are gone.
“Every relationship IS just so tenuous and precarious.” - Larry David
Hearts develop cracks .. become broken
“I love you” should not have been spoken
“Forever” ended yesterday
“I can no longer stay”
Happiness is never two … minus one
Tell the man in the moon to darken the sun **
When a heart touches a heart
There is always some part
embedded .. that remains
.. uniquely ingrained
.. perhaps with pain
.. perhaps with gain
It is very true ..
There's a little bit of something me
In everything in you – Rob Thomas
There is something you & something me
In everything .. that once was “we”
One was on page nine .. the other on page three
One wanted commitment .. one would make no guarantee
“Maturity, one discovers, has everything to do with the acceptance of ‘not knowing.” ― Mark Z. Danielewski
There are always mysteries hidden in the heart
.. they can bring us closer
.. they can also tear us apart
Some people are not MATURE
.. they are self-oriented & insecure
.. they are looking elsewhere .. not able to endure
We only ever know a person .. to the degree they give access
They will start in a direction with you .. but then they want a recess
Very often .. people do not know themselves
Self-discovery requires honest explorers
.. if one grows ..
.. if one then knows ..
.. if one is MATURE ..
Perhaps deeper is the well
Sometimes broken is the spell
Nothing strong is built on eggshells
Doubt is built with eggshells.
There is NOTHING more dreadful than DOUBT.
DOUBT separates people.
It is a POISON that disintegrates friendships
.. and breaks up pleasant relations.
It is a THORN that irritates & hurts;
.. it is a SWORD that kills. – Buddha
Sin has a way of finding us out
.. and so, does DOUBT
“Doubt becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy” – fem-v
You can be certain about that.
If someone is sitting on the fence
Is suspense some kind of recompense?
Giving only half your heart comes at what expense
Better to let go .. than to hold onto shallow pretense
“It IS better to be healthy alone than sick with someone else.” – Phil McGraw
People walking in the dark do not know where they are going .. they make unhealthy companions
The sun comes up everyday .. but not everyone sees the Light
“In His Light .. we have light” – Psalm 36
.. a Light to guide our path
.. Light to share with the one who might be our “better half”
The ship of “doubt & uncertainty” .. sets sail every day on the currents of change & challenge
It is always how we respond to uncertainty that defines us
.. change & challenge are meant to refine us ..
There are two ways to travel through life & deal with uncertainty .. the unknowns of change & challenge
.. one is with your heart toward God .. He promises is to “take hold of your hand & help you” .. “never leave you or forsake you”
.. the other is with your heart turned away. In which case you are on your own .. “left to your own devices” .. sing “I did it my way”
When people you love seem “uncertain” .. commit them to the Lord
We have no control over people .. cannot change many things
We are finite beings .. “Not knowing” .. this is our given state
God is Infinite .. knows all things .. seek Him. Do not hesitate.
Trust Him .. Leave all outcomes to Him
Be certain .. have faith
“Faith means living with uncertainty - feeling your way through life .. letting your heart guide you like a lantern in the dark.” - Dan Millman
When uncertainty keeps you up at night, then close your eyes & think of something that IS certain.
- God’s LOVE
- God’s Grace
This assurance .. will bring sweet sleep
When nothing else to hold .. or keep
Giving honor .. to Alan Geller
