Her love.

Her love was an ocean,

serene, gushing, trembling, rushing, 

Her love was incapable 

of sensing wrong from right,

Her love was uncanny

unconditional, her heart open to uncompensable smites,

Her love was laughter in those drastic storms,

Her love was lusting for understanding deep and warm,

Her love was compassion, endless chances 

to righten wrong ,

Her love was the very poison,

that squelched her  & cornered her into abjection.

And yet, when all failed her,

and she ameliorated from the overwhelming clamor,

Her love sustained & renewed her soul’s armour.

Her love which sought to go directions , all went,

now is seeking ways to make amends,

coming back to what was once empty,

Rustling inside her , like a spring of hustling confetti.

Dear Future Husband #15

 Honey….

Yesterday was a rough day.

I wonder how was yours.

Yesterday I had not many words to fill a blank page, was way too drained and sad . And I wanted something nice to say.

I did hope this #illustration of us that was done yesterday, speaks to you someday.

Hahah! Please don’t mind me looking elsewhere & not at you😉😊…..

I love dancing, mostly ball room, and usually my bro is my perfect partner, but the times he’s not around, I miss dancing, so I avoid parties, maybe one of those possible places fate could help us meet. 

But since I’m gonna be sticking to my chair even when there’s crazy music, I don’t turn up to such parties.

Apart from dancing, my well wisher pointed out that it would be so wonderful to actually meet you someday and realize that you have indeed read all of my letters all along. 

But that’s just wishful thinking or would that be a wonderful possibility?

I know I will meet you love, even if this wait will be months or years, but when we are destined by the Almighty we shall meet.

It scares me you know, this dating thing, because I don’t want to invest in someone who’s not you. 

Because there’s alot at stake. Emotions, feelings, time, understanding, patience, compromise, sacrifices, prayers….. and so on.

I want to invest all that in you. Someday, when we click, and if you ask for my heart, I will gladly give it to you, because by then , I’ll know, you’ll be the key to help me rebuild and become even more of a woman who belongs to herself first.

The pressures of the society or even family, at times , makes me feel weird, will I be forced to choose ? And if I do, will that be you ?

How will I ever know , love ? There are so many doubts, so many fears.

I’ve been raised by such amazing parents who have never once fallen out of love, their love is the very strength that binds our family together.

Will our love be the ship on which we shall proudly sail towards eternities ?

They say the soul knows who it wants ? And since you shall be my soulmate someday, will your soul recognize mine ?

I wonder love. I only can wonder.

I leave my worries about you in the hands of our match maker.

For he knows, who’s heart I can cherish and who can treasure mine.

I hope and pray dearly beloved, that you are having the most amazing time of your life. May you think of me, as I think of you. 

Haven’t met, yet to meet. Isn’t that a beautiful mysterious  fact of our lives ?

I will wait, my love. I don’t urge you or God to let you come soon. I pray that when you turn up, I am ready to accept you and welcome you, from that day on for forever thereafter.

Stay blest. Stay safe for me. 

For He knows our time will be in His time.

Until next letter,

And until God plans our eternity,

Your favorite dancing partner to be,

Your love.

Dear Future Husband #14

Hey love,

I was chatting with my friend, and she’s like where do I get these words from ? 

Words that I write for you …

Guess what I said ?

Romance hasn’t died in me , even though I’m happily single in the season of waiting . But it might just get over, since I’m pouring it all over here, so probably when you do turn up, my quota of romance might need some serious restocking. 😉

On a good note, I’m being formal I know, but it sounds crazier this way, haughty english style, I’ve been thinking. 

And me & thinking get along too damn well, and  totally out of proportion. 

When we do fall for each other, and we keep falling every day, more and more in love, I will be there to hold you, your hand, and squeeze it in reassurance when you need a boost if confidence. Love, I do not want to be your weakness, but if I am, then I’ll be honoured, but I will be proud to be your strength, and I hope we learn to be this rock of strength for each other.

I don’t see love just like strolling down the beach, getting all steamy and flirty and teasing and being totally love sick, but I see us being able to talk to each other, without the need to look at our phones every minute we are together, without the need of trying to hunt for topics to get rid of awkward silences, without the need of trying so hard to explain so either of us would understand, I see us smiling in comfortable silence, not needing too many words to understand , and respecting each other’s presence.

I know that relationships need work, and it’s not always a dream that would weave a web of magic in reality . We shall face all sorts of situations, where we might need to take decisions that might not sit well with either of us, I might be for it but you might not be and so on. 

But I want you to know , I will hold no grudge. I do not want regrets, but I will not stop you from chasing your dreams or building them, I will help you and encourage you and pray with you. But if it is something wrong for you, I will speak my mind aloud and let you know why.

I will expect the same from you love, correct me when I’m wrong. 

As much as a passion filled romance is thrilling and lovely, I know we will have ours too. But I would want ours to be such that would make some sigh and bless us, and not want to puke and tell us to stop.

You might even get a few letters from me, time and again once we do be with each other, but I assure you , I’m not gonna be the one to bombard my feed and yours with stories of Tom, Dick and Harry that spy on every moment of our life.

Here’s a scene I imagine, because I do see it happen to my parents quite often, they are still very possessive about each other, so there’s like a party we attend, and we are ignorant of the vibes we each give away. You trying to signal that I’m yours and me trying to ward off the attention you get by staking my claim , grabbing your hand, or even gnawing at it. 

Hahaha… It will be funny. Don’t you think ?

I will be a wee bit possessive of you and there will be times I might face jealousy, but I want you to know, that it will not be to cause you irritation, but to only try to soothe my endangered heart. Whilst I hope you will make me believe that we belong, like we are a match made in heaven, I would love to feel all that a journey with you will bring our way.

And from jealousy, to clashing thoughts, to decisions we dont agree together on, may we someday learn to love in our individual spirits to respect the space of each other, and accept at heart that no matter how different we may think or believe, we will live in harmony of our differences and imperfections.

Much love my dearest.

I pray My God takes good care of you,

Until He decides it’s  time for us to meet,

Your future rambling bride.

He’s still working on me.

A thing I realised..

In this moment when I am so involved, so enthralled  in creating, blending , finishing, and making something of what’s at hand, I know that this work in process will be complete in it’s time.


I am a work in process too.

And God is my creator, my moulder, my potter, my artist !

As He reshapes, redesigns, blends my life, and all else in it, He is indeed creating a master piece.
The more time. The best it will be.
Since I’m not done here. In a while I will be.
And since He’s not done with me, Someday He will.
Waiting is beautiful in its own way. 

Reminder :

Dear Friend,

Take time to pause, once in a while and breathe in the serenity of Life that God offers amidst every storm, chaos, confusion or a happy patch. Take time to realize that we all are His work in progress. Some finished, some semi finished, some He is working on simultaneously, some he has left in the furnace to become strong, and hold together every part of what’s made of us.

Some of us are like wet clay, that needs dry clay so we are reshaped and reformed. The techniques our divine Potter will use to mould us into the best beings we can be are infinite and unbelievably beautiful.

This journey from work in process to finished us, is a journey not alone ours, but that of Our God with us, His help, his guidance, we need Him to mould us and ready us for what awaits.

And thus , instead of believing that we are whole and don’t need any more help in our journey from semi finished pieces of creation to Master pieces of our Great God, let us be open to Him. Let us wait on Him. And let us believe & have faith that our Lord will make the most of us in His wonderful ways.

Stay blest. Stay connected with God.

much love ,

from one Work in process to another.
#leeevibes 

P.s. Only because I fall in love with unfinished art more then the finished one.. The making is the most inspiring, beautiful , soothing, peaceful , enchanting and magical process.

………….…………………………….……………………..………….…..……


I’m pondering on the words of this hymn ↓

He's still working on me
To make me what I need to be
It took him just a week to make the moon and stars 
The sun and the earth and Jupiter and Mars
How loving and patient He must be
'Cause He's still workin' on me


There really ought to be a sign upon my heart 
Don't judge him yet, there's an unfinished part
But I'll be better just according to His plan
Fashioned by the Master's loving hands


In the mirror of His word
 Reflections that I see
 Makes me wonder why He never gave up on me
But He loves me as I am and helps me when I pray
 Remember He's the potter, I'm the clay

Dear Future Husband #13

Love,

I am dramatically staring 

at time of less essence,

would you find me a fairy Godmother,

to take me to where you stand ?

Even glass slippers would do,

if you would send me a search troop !

to rescue me from the many walls I built.

Or would Aladdin rent me his genie

for my last wish ,

to take me to where time stands still?

Will there be an evil queen in our fairytale?

Will I be saved by gentle 7 dwarfs,

and be kissed to be waken from a sleeping spell?

No!

This won’t be our’s,

No fairy, No genie, No flying carpet,

No glass slippers, No sleeping spells,

No needles of poison, No apples to cause destruction,

No kiss of resurrection ,

No happily ever afters that are only dreams, No magic beans for second chances,

No evil queen, No conspiring step mothers,

No balls, No magic that books proclaim,

JUST YOU AND ME,

walking towards each other in this world of twitchy reality,

in a pattern of DIVINE INTERVENTION,

WE SHALL MEET,

and grow in Love 

in our walk towards forever to greet eternity,

With God’s will alone,

and heaps of blessings for the remainder of our journey.


Your’s in God’s precious time,

a girl without glass slippers, magic wands and pixie dust.
(Now honey, come find me, your only way to me is God.)

The walk.

Lee : Jesus, where are we going ?

Jesus : That’s a surprise my child. 

Lee: Will I be happy?

Jesus : With me, yes, you will be.

Lee: See Lord, it’s so beautiful and green, can I take one flower? They are so beautiful!

Jesus : My child, What would you do with it ?

Lee : hmmmm.. keep it… ? take it home.. 

Jesus : And then. 

Lee : It will die eventually, though. So I dunno.

Jesus : Yes. This beauty that you see around will fade in time, even you my child , your outer beauty will fade as you grow older, but your inner beauty will shine brighter. Will you walk with me ? Where I want to take you, is a beautiful place, but quite an adventure. Are you ready ?

Lee: Yes , Lord. I so am. Let’s go. 

Jesus : Thinking. [ If only she knew, that not all paths will be through the greenest valleys, there will be a few paths through the dessert, where she will be thirsty for many things, but they will be hard to find, there will be a few or many mountains for us together to climb, will she remember at all times, that I am here, holding her hand ? Will she remember to be this excited about life always, as we walk through these green meadows ? I will teach her. I hope she allows me to. ]

Lee : Jesus? Are you there ? Why are you not talking to me ?

Jesus : I’m here my child, what is it ?

Lee : The green pastures are gone, and I think there’s a storm coming our way, I’m afraid. Please don’t leave me Lord.

Jesus : Listen to me my child, I am your God, I will never forsake you. Do not be afraid. I am with you, for now and always. Do not fear the storm, when you have me. Do not doubt my presence through our journey. 

Lee : Our journey Lord? Ain’t this my life ?

Jesus : No, my child. This life that I gave you belongs to me as much as you, you are mine, and so is your life. I control it. Do you have faith ?

Lee : Faith ? Yes Lord. But What about the storm ? There’s no way out. We are trapped. 

Jesus : This is your test My child, Fix your eyes on me. Whom do you see ? In this storm, if you see only me, You will know I will lead you through it. Don’t take your eyes off me, you will get lost.

Lee : If I get lost, Will you find me ? 

Jesus : I always will. But will you come back to me, when you find the way ?

Lee : Yes Lord.

Jesus : I will always wait. Trust me, my child, what awaits you goes through me first. I will not give you what you can’t handle. And when you are tired and heavy burdened, give it to me, your all, and I will give you rest.

Lee : I love you Lord. I now know I’m safe in your hands. I will focus on you as we go through this.

Jesus : I love you more my child,  My love for you is boundless. Even when you lose focus, I will be there. I will protect you and save you. Do not be afraid. I am the way, the truth and the life.

Lee : You are my way. My life is your’s. I am your child. Thank you for being with me.

Jesus : Come now, child, let’s go. The plans I have for you, will lead you to prosperity. Count on me. And remember, it is not only the dessert we shall walk through, but we will have to climb the hills and mountains on our way. We have to keep walking, in faith. My father will guide us with His spirit. Do you believe in me ?

Lee : Yes , Lord , I do. Will it be too tough ?

Jesus : It will make you brave and strong and victorious. Let’s keep walking. Each step will take us closer to your reward.

Learn as you walk, child. There are many lessons we learn in this walk of life. 

I will teach you. 

Lee: I will try to do right, please don’t leave me.

Jesus : I won’t.

______ _____ _______ _________ ____________
As we walk through life, we often fail to realise that God is with us, every moment of our journey.

May we learn to focus on Him, to remember Him always in all that we do.

May we learn the many lessons he wants us to learn as His plans for our lives unfold.

May we learn to be like Him. Gentle, kindhearted, full of love and mercy and compassion and gratitude and limitless faith.

Stay blest.

Dear Future Husband #12

Dear Darling Hubby (Prince of my future),

I did this to show you what I meant in my letter #2 for you.

https://leannerod8.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/dear-future-husband-2/

Love, I do see glimpses of us, but not your face. Maybe that’s the most beautiful mystery yet to unfold, or would you be a surprise sweet and untold ?

I leave it to God, to choose me for you, and you for me, to help us find our way together towards eternity. 

I leave time to befriend us in God’s planned destiny.

Life can be bits of glimpses of tomorrows, memories of yesterday and the moments of now.

Each of my letter is a prayer for your safety, and guidance. 

May you find the courage you need , when you need it most,

May you be blest with a friend, to help you love life more,

May your family be blest too, because one day it will be mine, or rather ours,

May you find me, when it is time for us to fall in love, and build ourselves on our faith, Our God.

I don’t need cupid, or his bow, 

I don’t need Valentine’s day for a show,

I don’t need people setting me up on blind dates,

I don’t need the fear of losing you, before we have even met,

I don’t need to feel disheartened or disappointed,

Because I’m happy writing you letters, waiting for you, and building me.

I don’t need a push towards you or away , it can’t be forced, this is God’s plan, and it will be magnificent, I believe in Him. And His righteousness. Let’s wait upon him for us.

And so when we meet , I know I’ll be ready to befriend you and be there , for the rest of our days.

Your’s for eternity in God’s time,

Your future bride in white .
