Tale As Old As Time…

“… true as it can be. Barely even friends then somebody bends unexpectedly..”

I have no idea how my love story is being written. All I know is that it is being written by the most excellent, most incredible Storyteller of all time. And for that I have more than enough reason to be sure it will be as brilliant as He only knows it can be. And truth be told, I love it best when He does all these things. Surprises & all. 

February, as we know, is considered love month. I’ve never been lured into celebrating this month ever since I can remember. But I thought of putting up an entry in the hopes of declaring True Love.

Tune As Old As Song…

You ever notice how every love story begins? Isn’t it curious that it all starts out the same? It comes in many different ways and forms but it has always been boy meets girl. They both start out hopeful, gets desperate, and then, did you notice how it usually ends? It always ends either one of two ways. They either decide to give up and fall apart, or live to continue what was started come what may.

Can you identify which part of the story you’re in?

Sometimes it can get really frustrating. You try so hard, you give it everything you’ve got, only to get nothing in return, only to be rejected. Or you both do everything you can to salvage a relationship but nothing just ever seems to work out. 

You start to question everything. You try to make sense of all the pain, frustration, sorrow until it seems the only logical thing to do is to give up, let go, accept that nothing will change. Accept that the end has finally come. Accept that there’s nothing more either of you could do about how bad things have become. 

Bittersweet And Strange…

And then the morning comes reminding us that everything is made anew each sunrise. Suddenly, you realise that the person you loathe now isn’t really anyone else but yourself.

It would seem that the person who made all the mistake isn’t him or her but you. It’s not that you can’t forgive the other person. It’s easy to forgive others of their mistakes.

You realise the truth is that you are having a hard time forgiving them for having seen every tiny bits and pieces of the mistakes you committed. 

Beauty And The Beast

You begin to see that the other Person has always been patient, willing to wait, ready to accept everything about you and help you in and with anything. 

You wonder how can Someone be so understanding of your feelings, mood swings, foul temper, impatience. Why did He ever choose to be with you? What has He seen in you that’s even worth laying eyes on? How bizarre, unbelievably incredible, mind-blowing can it really be that Someone would want to spend eternity with someone like you? 

The idea of a love story between a man and a woman is something I will always be delighted to hear. But the love story between the Maker and his creation, now that is something I always marvel at. Someone offering his very life to prove how much He loves me. The Father giving His only Son that I could be with Him from here and for all time? This writing will never give justice to its incredibly beautifully written story.

I realise time and time again that He is the Beauty. And I… I am the beast


Coffee and Kisses

Dear Future Husband,

How are you? I want to say that I miss you even if I haven’t actually seen you. Hahaha! But it’s true. How are you feeling today? I hope you are having fun with whatever it is you’re doing. If not, just hang in there. May I ask a favor? Please don’t get too angry. 

I thought of writing this because as much as I want to guide you every single time, we both know I can’t. I’ve put together some words of encouragement for you to look at while we haven’t seen each other yet. I’ve inserted some things I want you to do in the future too. I hope that’s alright. I pray these things will be helpful. 

Here we go. 😊

  • Pray for me. Pray that God would make more patient and continue to be obedient to His words. 
  • Pray for us. Pray that God would lead us both. Pray that God bring us both to that time, place and moment that He perfectly orchestrated for us to meet.
  • Play for me. You know how much I like it when you play. Sorry I didn’t see them that time you played them for me. I’d like to think I’m making up for them by watching and listening to them now over and over again. I mean, am I? 😚
  • Please never think you are not enough. Even now, I’m telling you, you are more than the guy I ever thought and imagined. The truth is, I am trying to keep up with you. The pressure is on, you know. 
  • I want you to know that so far, the part that I love so much about you is the way you handle your feelings. I’m very impressed. You manage to show me everything without putting so much out there, just enough for me to see.
  • Don’t get jealous. Don’t ever get jealous. That part won’t happen again. I love giving people hugs but that moment then, I would have to agree with you. 
  • Please never be scared. Don’t be scared to say hi. Don’t be scared to smile at me. Don’t be scared of approaching me. Because I get scared too. 😂 
  • Let’s enjoy every awkward moment. 
  • Don’t play the cool. I know I always say ‘be cool.’ But I don’t mean be cool in pretending you didn’t see me or you didn’t know me. Make your presence known. Let me know you’re there so I don’t leave right away. Please allow me to make some space for you. Let us allow each other to set the right moment.
  • Personally, I think we would be doing each other a favor if we do not become a fan of our love story. Let’s just be quiet and cool about it. I mean, having you in my life will definitely be one of the best, grandest blessings but if it’s alright with you, can we make that declaration in front of our loving family and closest friends? I really don’t want to splash it on social media. Let’s put social media aside and reserve that part for the right time.
  • When we see each other talk to me about your adventures. Tell me about the friends you’ve met in all your travels. What were the weirdest ways you met them? What rituals did you do to be friends with them, if there were any? What’s the one constant thing you do in all your travels and adventures? 
  • Two words: coffee and kisses. When you bring me coffee (and be sure to do so), never forget the kisses. They should always be together, okay? I want the sweetest kisses, please. 😊

That’s it for now. I miss you. I’ll see you real soon.

Your Future Wife,
