It is very rare that I write about something unless I have an personal insight into a subject matter I address. But today is a new day for me. I woke up thinking about how blessed I am in having so much love surrounding me in my life right now. I have never known what it has meant to be known as a great lover, but I have done what a lot of American singles out there do: We are IN LOVE with the idea of BEING in Love. There is that Hollywood Scripted love scene where every touch is accentuated and every breath seems exaggerated. I even find myself holding my breath just before a couple finally embraces after so many scenes reveal the "against all odds" scenarios. You know what I am talking about don't you? And men, real men do cry at the movies. Allergies my foot! God has given each of us the outlet to express our emotions and I believe if we all shared more truth with each other we wouldn't have to go to our memory banks to try and remember what lie we used to cover up this last lie. Back to the subject of love; a topic in which my past relationships wouldn't provide you with a standing ovation I am sure. But like a lot of couples, we hit and miss as we feel our way around what we THINK love is supposed to be. I love to be in love-- I love the way it makes me feel anxious...always anticipating that something big is about to happen. I love to be in a room full of people and suddenly "there she appears from around the corner and you've caught her eye-- you both dance in your provocative thoughts as she teasingly tosses her intentionally loose hair that hangs just slightly in front of her right eye. She knows how to manipulate her face with a slight angle and that whisp of lovely strands of golden hair softly brushes against her milky white palette face. Have I captured your imagination yet? I have always secretly wanted to write a romance novel but only for the lover of my life-- an intimate journey through an exotic fantasy world where there are no rumors of war, the ugliness of the reality of sinful nature surrounding what once was our secret hide away-- a castle somewhere far off in the distance. But then just outside of the cracked window there is the real world of evil lurking in place of what used to be pure and good. Lust has captured what used to be Love and the slow dance has turned to slithering snakes entwined in lusty rhythmic mantra. I am not against true love-- in fact, I seek out for the real thing and yet when I pull away my hand all that is left is the cinders from a dying love that once burned bright with hope for the unraveling of the kind of Love God has always intended for mankind-- not the twisted, perverted lustfilled counterfeit love that is found amongst the elite that call themselves the LGBT. In all fairness, they too are like all of us-- they too search for true love but like many of us they can't find it because love has waxed cold in this world. Where has the power of love gone? The only place anyone is going to find true love is in Jesus Christ. Where is the essence of true love-- the birth of a child; the final farewell of a soldier who is willing to die for freedom; the first intimate touch between a virginal bride and groom on their first night together. Even to hear a song that once represented all that was sacred, special, sentimental. Where has all of the pure love gone? Folks, so many things are trying to replace these sentiments-- abortion instead of the birth of a precious newborn; the reality of an unarmed soldier who has been given orders to fight with his hands tied behind his back all in the name of political chaos and bad and wrong choices and voices; the pure consummation between a woman who has probably experienced many men in her past sexual experience and a groom who has experienced too many pornographic sites and he now mistakes those images of what true love is supposed to be. Society is dying a slow, painful death and every American in this nation can feel our liberty and justice and freedom and sovereignty fade to black. We desperately need God back in this country my fellow Americans! A nation without God is DEAD and the heartbeat and pulse of the American Dream is slowly coming to a dull rhythm that has lulled all of us Americans to sleep. WAKE UP AMERICA -- WE NEED GOD BACK IN THIS COUNTRY. WE MAY NOT HAVE A STRONG PULSE BUT WE STILL HAVE OUR FIGHTING SPIRIT TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT. WE STILL HAVE THAT INNER BELIEF IN THE CORE OF OUR BEING THAT OUR ANCESTORS BELIEVED IN. LET US RISE UP LIKE THE PHOENIX OUT OF THE ASHES MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS - IN THE NAME OF GOD ALMIGHTY - LET US TAKE BACK ALL THAT IS GOOD AND PURE AND HOLY! IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST!
Be blessed and be a blessing
