Love on Record

Journal entries from a young and lovesick  me:

03-13-2015

Today, My broken heart is beating to a sad tune as tears dance along my face. because, my current memory plays like a loop in my head of a guy I thought was the one. Who, just coldly said in short goodbye. How did I not see or hear the needle skip in our year  love song? Furthermore, how can I pick up the pieces of what was and what’s now? Due to the fact, I feel my life has been trampled by  his hipster tennis shoes;  I fear I may never love again.

Close to Me

“I was so close to him, I could have cried, from being over joyed”

” I was this close in line from getting the last, Chocolate Cronut ”

” That ball came close to hinting my face”

” I sat this close to the stage!”

” My friends and I, are very close

” That strange person is to close ,  to me , for own my comfort.”

” Let’s create an event to draw our  family close together.”

” Let’s close the subject and let it go”

” We’re getting close to the end of our work day”

” it’s getting close to my vacation”

“Sorry, we have to close the door. ”

The word close can be felt is many different ways. Depending on the way it’s used  said or written. I never realized this until this writing exercise. Nor, the emotions that are felt behind it, whenever the word is used. Like, the above examples. which are a few.

These emotions, run from relief ,excitement, disappointment, anticipation, tenderness, and Fondness.

But, of course the word close can have a negative spin to it. But, we all  know those feelings.So, I’ll close the subject on this.

Instead I  would like to close this post the hopes, when the day of our Lord comes; That  none of us are saying while  in  the depths of hell ,  ” I was that close to getting into heaven”. :))))))

Have Blessed and safe evening every9ne~ Leah

And it goes on and on

If I had to list my favorite things in life. It would change, depending on what stage of my life I’m in. Such as a child my favorite things where:
1) Play dates with friends
2) My Little Pony
3) Bedtime stories

 

When I was a teenager that list changed to:

1) Boys

2) Talking on the phone

3) All things  fashionable and on trend

And this list went on, with the names of the boys changing, as crushes go. Along with my favorite boy bands ,celebrities and fashion magazine.

Here are my twenties:

1) My long term boyfriend ( So, I thought)

2) Our First apartment together

3)  My First apartment alone ( enough said)

This would also included career, car,  nightclubs, and apple martinis.

But, the older I become the more that list matures.These are the things I favor, now in my life:

1) Going on Hikes

2)  Reading or writing outside on my balcony

3) Chocolate

Other’s things included on this list a glass of wine with friends over dinner. Enjoying time with my family, crocheting, photography,vacations,  bee keeping and  quite time

But, what’s  not on  my rotating lists, is my time in the mornings, when  I meditate  on Jehovah’s words through the teachings of  Jesus Christ.  Why, didn’t I  mention God in Jesus Christ? Simply, because all through enjoyable moments. My faith is who I ‘am , not listed because this   bible verse says it best.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.   ~ Hebrews 13:8

 

There isn’t  a realer statement than that, for me. Also, across my heart and soul no matter the age  I make a list up. It’s will always be  due to the Heavenly Father, that I have the emotions to enjoy the  things like and love. And it’s Because of the Father  through Jesus Christ, that gives me the courage to  take heed and learn a lesson  from loving too much.

Thank You, Leah.

God Bless you all in the name of Jesus Christ.

Grateful

” Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is Liberty.”  2 Corinthians 3:17

Where to begin with word grateful. Because regardless how bad life can become I can still find things and people to become thankful for. Like my mother, whom I could write volumes about all things she’s done for her children.

Along with my favorite person, I think laughter is something to appreciate. It’s a freeing that lights up the soul and the heart. Yet, another gift from Jehovah-jireh In addition to being redeemable through Jesus Christ.

Is that we, also have the gift of feelings of love, peace , joy and. Community. And yes! Sometimes when we’re upset or over heated with fear, sadness and insecurities , a nice cry can be refreshing and soul cleansing in away.

So , am so grateful to feel and to share those feelings with others. Because, it’s in those moments we let our true spirits shine. We shine what was given to us from above. Those are things  that leave me grateful ….

Five Minute Friday . Mess

018

Mess…..
There could be no other, beautiful mess than a child. Children , that included my young nieces and nephews. Kids I’ v baby sat or volunteered to work with.

Some of those where once young enough to chase around playfully like butterfly’s in flight. That , rest for a moments time . Where i can take notice in those brief moments on how great God creation’s can be. Before it takes flight as sun rays shine through it’s vibrate colors. “Awestruck”

To me it reminds me pretty much of a children, that I’ve ran after, for them to clean off the days joyful moments. Of playing in the mud and catching earthworms. “Yuck!”

Of finger painting, more of the walls than paper, as well as them selves. ” “Give me strength Jesus”

Of arts and craft’s , scattered crayons, glittered encrusted bits of paper fall to a recently clean floor. “Yikes!”

After those moments It’s during those down times those time that they land. After the baths and cleaning what seemed an overwhelming mess. I than look at their joyful and peaceful faces ” Thank The Lord!”

That are snuggled safe in bed, nestled under soon to become ruffled blankets. “Adorable ” smile and relief is felt all at once.

Because, I’m truly thankful to have been blessed of taking care and knowing these tiny mass of innocents and quite time for me! But, regardless of moments of stress and panic I still appreciate the love of children, though I may not have been blessed with my own. It makes having every moment a blissful rarity.
