Window of My Soul

When I look into your eyes I see the eyes of many faces.

I hear the voice of many waters and feel the hearts of many souls.

I hear the cooing of a dove, your unconditional love.

Graceful and unassuming.

When I look into your eyes I feel your need for my love.

You devour my presence and inhale my every word.

When I look into your eyes, my children

I see you, but I also see them

The others who I know not, but that I dream about.

Children from many places, many walks and many races

I see you.

I feel you.

And I pray for you.

When I look into your eyes

I can see through the window of my soul.

I see you

Your trials and tribulations.

I AM IN LOVE!

imagesCALM4F43Often times I am overwhelmed with the love I have for my children. I value them and motherhood so much and I hope that loving energy flows to them, unfiltered, just as I feel it. Being a mother has given me an outlet for loving that is so endearing. And the love that you see in a child’s eyes draws upon that love even more. I AM IN LOVE!

Children allow you to love as you’ve always wanted to, but were afraid to for fear of being rejected and hurt. But, that won’t happen with children. They love you back, even when you’re not the best parent, they love you anyway.

As a Counselor, I am a witness to the resiliency of neglected and abused children. They still love! They continue to seek the acceptance and love of their abusive and neglectful parents. CHILDREN ARE MANIFESTED LOVE and I AM IN LOVE…with LOVE.

Sitting here today, I am thankful that God has blessed me twice with the experience of carrying and nurturing life. I am in awe of the fullness of the blessings God has bestowed upon me. I wish that everyone could see children for the blessings that they are, an opportunity to love and be loved; to teach and be taught; to nurture and be nurtured.

I AM IN LOVE!

Woman…Man’s Achilles Heel and His Healing

Legend has it that Achilles was the bravest hero of the Trojan war, according to Greek mythology. When Achilles was born, his mother, Thetis, tried to make him immortal by dipping him in the river Styx. As she immersed him, she held him by one heel and forgot to dip him a second time so the heel she held could get wet too. Therefore, the place where she held him remained untouched by the magic water of the Styx and that part stayed mortal or vulnerable. Achilles fought heroically against the Trojans, but was killed by Paris,  who shot him in the heel with an arrow from behind.  To this day, any weak point is called an “Achilles Heel”. We also refer to the strong tendon that connects the muscles of the calf of the leg with the heel bone as the “achilles tendon”.

I’m sure you’ve noticed and I realize that many of my posts are about relationships. It is because I realize that life is about relationships. We are all having “One Big Relationship” with each other. What you think and do, affects me and I, you. How about that?!

Well, I’ve been working through some thoughts and feelings about dating and it’s path to marriage. While many take a haphazard approach to dating, I believe dating is just as serious as planning your career. It is a part of your “family planning”. Yeah, although some front as if they are just having fun, yet, really and truly, everyone is looking for “that one” to catch their attention and capture their  hearts.  And if…through the process of dating, your goal is to meet your husband or wife,  “dating is a serious matter”. You may not acknowledge this fact, but ultimately you are in search of a “partner for life”. Even the playa-playa and the wanna be, act-like-a-man woman who sleeps around and uses her goods to get what she wants, is looking for love. Face it, love is at the core of our being. It is what we seek from others and it completes us. Unfortunately, we have to sort through the layers of mental and spiritual calluses to get to the soft inner being that is light and love. It’s ok though, because we have all been through something and the calluses protect; they are filters, padding and protection from pain.

Today, the most important question on the subject popped up in my mind, “Can I Submit Unto You”. Men love the concept of “submission”,  women tend to turn their noses up to it. But, I think that any woman who is able to go deeper than her thoughts and misconceptions about submitting, will find that she deeply wants to find someone who she can submit to.  She will want to submit…to the right person, because he will be worthy.
