Parents

​YES I know how blest I am.

YES I know what wonderful parents I have,

Two people who make me feel like I have my God on earth with me through them,

Two people who make me believe

That TRUE LOVE EXISTS,

that compassion and love 

Are the most ultimate treasures one can ever receive.

That a house can be built on rocks,

But a home is made with a bonding of hearts,

That not having the same understandings and different thoughts, may result in fights of deep meaning, and may hurt either one, but at the end of it , nothing matters more than being with each other through times of variant phases.
That losing oneself to push the other to discover their  boundaries, is the biggest gain. 

That the rewards of sacrifices will not succumb to pain. 

That having each other, even if miles apart, is knowing that there are these arms that will always always open wide , to hold me close to their heart. 

Oh what joy it is to be blest with the utmost best ?

Ask me, for I know that my home is where my heart will always reside. . .with them.

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.

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.)

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 .

Dear Future Husband #11

Well hello there darling,

It’s my freaking 11th letter and there’s no freaking sign of you. I wonder if I’ll have to wait until letter 50 ? or would you make me wait till letter 100 ? 

Might as well jumble these up in a book and force you to read them or listen to me read them on every of our dates when we meet. 

So here’s the rule. One letter per date. 

And the more you take time to show up, you should think again, dates can be a costly affair, also dating me with all the layers of walls I’ve put up won’t be that easy.

Anyways , it’s a warm sunday morning, much relief from work, would be going to meet some new faces and oldy buds to sit and write letters for people to make them feel better.

This feels like a personal diary over here, but won’t you agree ? cards and letters make you feel so good ? it has a personal touch, more feelings invested and also they can get deeply dramatic like mine are for you.

Okaaaayyy… enough of me blabbering.

Today, I will live and breathe in the basking sun, it’s yet the newest thing I’ll be doing today, writing with friends, and sometimes trying these new things, filled with excitement, and eagerness, makes you feel utterly positive, like in a bubble of happiness.

It’s a nice feeling indeed. I might even get some me time. I usually don’t like the me times, they freak me out, not used to be in solitude for too long, but I shall try it today.

Love, the wait that is between us, is making me realize, that I need it, I’m still learning myself, discovering myself, loving myself, for too long I’ve been overly insecure, I still am, but not as much as I was once, for too long I’ve been living with delusions of happy ending, for too long I’ve tasted success, that the hiccups I’m facing now, I’m learning to cope with, and our time apart, is teaching me every day, of how to be me and how to live with these edges that I was so blinded to.

Each time I write you a letter, I feel like you are getting real, not a thought, not a dream, not fiction. I now believe, you are out there, waiting for a glimpse of us to happen. And probably you might be seeing someone right now, its one of the many possible scenarios my hijabi and me have thought of as to why haven’t you’ll yet shown up. And I want you to know, that I’m fine with it. Because your life before me, is your life indeed, but your life with me and thereafter shall be our’s, our life. And if you happen to wander your eyes elsewhere then, mister! you should know I will live up to my name. Not bragging just warning.

(Incase you don’t yet know, Leandra does mean like a lioness.)

I love the wait, because now it no longer makes me feel afraid, I know I will meet you someday, and I know that you will read my letters (no matter how forcefully I make you read them).

For the hope that God gives me, saying EVERYTHING HAS A TIME OF IT’S OWN.

For the faith I have in His words that

EVERYTHING IS MADE IN PAIRS.

I know One day, there will be an us. Us for an eternity. 

Sirach 42:24-25 (GNT)

24 All things are in pairs, each the opposite of the other,


    but nothing the Lord made is incomplete.


25 Everything completes the goodness of something else.


    Could anyone ever see enough of this splendor?


See… Now you know Why I am so confident about us. Because when God gave His word, why worry ? He’s plan will unfold at His will. Let’s wait upon the Lord . Because everything he made is magnificent, and our love story will be one such marvelous creativity. I leave you in the hands of my potter, so he moulds you as he moulds me, he guides you as he guides me, and he prepares you as he prepares me for the life that awaits us.

Until then, take care my love.

Your’s certainly in God’s time ,

Your future love and best friend forever.

Dear periwinkle,

Dear Periwinkle,

As the colour of your petals always warms my heart, 

please never stop yourself to have fresh starts,

live in a grandeur of humbleness,

may you always be filled with hopefulness.

taste nature in its simplicity,

smile and spread peaceful tranquility,

sing and soar high,

let your music run all pains dry,

mistakes will never be you,

keep them apart, make some new,

but learn good, learn well,

forever be you, strive to excel.

May Lord guide you in His light,

May your morrows always be, as you, bright.

Love always,

Lea.

(stay blest tachaaa… this is for you.. dil se re.. )
