// True Love//

My husband is an Engineer by profession, I love him for his steady nature, and I love the warm feeling when I lean against his broad shoulders. Three years of courtship and now, two years into marriage, I would have to admit, that I am getting tired of it. The reasons of me loving him before, has now transformed into the cause of all my restlessness. I am a sentimental woman and extremely sensitive when it comes to a relationship and my feelings, I yearn for the romantic moments, like a little girl yearning for candy. My husband, is my complete opposite, his lack of sensitivity, and the inability of bringing romantic moments into our marriage has disheartened me about love. One day, I finally decided to tell him my decision, that I wanted a divorce.

“Why?” he asked, shocked. “I am tired, there are no reasons for everything in the world!” I answered. He kept silent the whole night, seems to be in deep thought with a lighted cigarette at all times.

My feeling of disappointment only increased, here was a man who can’t even express his predicament, what else can I hope from him? And finally he asked me:” What can I do to change your mind?” Somebody said it right, it’s hard to change a person’s personality, and I guess, I have started losing faith in him.

Looking deep into his eyes I slowly answered : “Here is the question, if you can answer and convince my heart, I will change my mind, Let’s say, I want a flower located on the face of a mountain cliff, and we both are sure that picking the flower will cause your death, will you do it for me?” He said :” I will give you your answer tomorrow….” My hopes just sank by listening to his response.

I woke up the next morning to find him gone, and saw a piece of paper with his scratchy handwriting, underneath a milk glass, on the dining table near the front door, that goes….

My dear, “I would not pick that flower for you, but please allow me to explain the reasons further..” This first line was already breaking my heart. I continued reading. “When you use the computer you always mess up the Software programs, and you cry in front of the screen, I have to save my fingers so that I can help to restore the programs.

You always leave the house keys behind, thus I have to save my legs to rush home to open the door for you. You love traveling but always lose your way in a new city, I have to save my eyes to show you the way.

You always have the cramps whenever your “good friend” approaches every month, I have to save my palms so that I can calm the cramps in your tummy. You like to stay indoors, and I worry that you will be infected by infantile autism. I have to save my mouth to tell you jokes and stories to cure your boredom.

You always stare at the computer, and that will do nothing good for your eyes, I have to save my eyes so that when we grow old, I can help to clip your nails,and help to remove those annoying white hairs. So I can also hold your hand while strolling down the beach, as you enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful sand… and tell you the color of flowers, just like the color of the glow on your young face…

Thus, my dear, unless I am sure that there is someone who loves you more than I do… I could not pick that flower yet, and die.. ” My tears fell on the letter, and blurred the ink of his handwriting… and as I continue on reading…

“Now, that you have finished reading my answer, if you are satisfied, please open the front door for I am standing outside bringing your favorite bread and fresh milk…

I rush to pull open the door, and saw his anxious face, clutching tightly with his hands, the milk bottle and loaf of bread…. Now I am very sure that no one will ever love me as much as he does, and I have decided to leave the flower alone…

That’s life, and love. When one is surrounded by love, the feeling of excitement fades away, and one tends to ignore the true love that lies in between the peace and dullness.

Love shows up in all forms, even very small and cheeky forms, it has never been a model, it could be the most dull and boring form.. . flowers, and romantic moments are only used and appear on the surface of the relationship. Under all this, the pillar of true love stands… and that’s our life… Love, not words, win arguments…

Often times when we want to do something big, we tend to rely on the results our eyes would want to see. This isn’t exactly wrong but one must always leave room for God to be God. While reading The Message bible it was clear that when Jesus sent his disciples out into the world, He knew that He only had 11 men to start off this massive commission. He knew that this was gonna be “BIG” and yet He started it out with 12 men….including one who betrayed Him….to change the world.
Sometimes the biggest fulfilled dreams and plans in our lives start from the most humble beginnings.
When it comes to matters about the Lord, we need not think of how He’s going to move in ours or someone else’s life. He is a big God therefore it is only right to believe that He will move…in big ways.
The following passage spoke to me. It showed me that one thing i need to do, in ever increasing measure, is to make myself available for His use regardless of situation I may be in at the time. I often concern myself with the limitations of my effectivity on stage as an artist.
I believe that once we agree to trust Him in all areas of our lives, it opens up the room…. the space, for God to be and do all that He said He would inside a willing heart.
When God calls you to do something only you can do…JUST DO IT.

Matthew 10:9-10 (Msg)
Don’t think you have to put on a fund-raising campaign before you start. You don’t need a lot of equipment. You are the equipment, and all you need to keep that going is three meals a day. Travel light.
Be encouraged my friend. His plans are good…and always will be good for you.

HOW COOL IS THIS YOU GUYS?! Like a Biblical theme park! Heehee! So cute! I think this is a really great idea to share God’s Word and make it come alive to more people, especially to kids! Here’s an excerpt from the site:

The Ark Encounter is a one-of-a-kind historically themed attraction.  In an entertaining, educational, and immersive way, it presents a number  of historical events centered on a full-size, all-wood Ark, which  should become the largest timber-frame structure in the USA.

Plans for the attraction include a Walled City, the Tower of Babel, a  first-century Middle Eastern village, a journey in history from Abraham  to the parting of the Red Sea, a walk-through aviary, a large petting  zoo, and so on.

It is designed to be family oriented, historically authentic, and environmentally friendly.

Personally, I would looove to see them recreate the first century village and actually experience being inside it! I love that it’s privately funded (they’re asking for donations!) and environmentally friendly as well. Praise God for these people! :)
Check out the website and explore it yourself. Pretty amazing. ♥
