Eyes Wide Open

 

Heartpillow17

 

His hands are soft and always warm.

His body radiates heat no matter what the temperature outside.

His eyes are full of jokes or encouraging words.

He strives to be a blessing to everyone in his life, eager to ease any burdens and ready to join me in my spur of the moment plans.

Together, we live out our faith, explore new places and are regulars at all the local Indian and Thai restaurants around us.

As we’ve grown together, it makes more sense, it’s gotten easier to adapt and we are comfortable in our differences.

We know God has made us who we are individually, there’s no pressure to meld into the other.

Only to become more of who He designed us to be, as a son and a daughter of the King.

Only to understand what God is leading each of us to do and to follow the path He has picked.

This is huge.

I’m so aware of God around us.

I want nothing more than to listen closely to the Father as He reveals the great adventure written for me and written for him.

  1. I like the ideas in it, AND YOU HVE SOME GREAT IMAGERY, but it needs some more, ie. His eyes are full of jokes. It would be nice to know what kind of jokes and what encouraging words maybe later on in the poem. You have some very original ways of looking at life, which is the stuff of great writers!
