Looking at today’s schedule, she reflects
There will always be things on the ‘to do’ list
Always be more friends she ‘could’ potentially meet up with
Too much to achieve
An ongoing list
The majority of her time
The most precious gift we can give to another
Her mind drifts
Up and away
Forgetting the list
Above the busy
Into the place
That very special one
Will be spent
So differently here
“you have a date tonight…..please be ready at 6 pm” she sends this small, intimate message to him alone
“I will be ready” his immediate response
“Tonight’s attire will be a casual dressy…we will be traveling, more details are unknown at this time” she sends her second message
“Interesting….will we be out late?” his reply
“we will…and I will be wearing a red dress, just in case you are interested. Would you prefer my hair up or down?” she smiles, how she loves teasing him this way
“Red is my favorite color, and let’s start with your hair up” he teases back
She can’t help falling more in love with this man on a day such as this
Thankful for God’s patience and grace in sending him to her, she sends her quiet prayer of gratefulness. She thanks Him also for the gentle reminder that time is a most precious gift meant to be shared with those we love, and this comes before the ‘to do’ list.
And as she drifts back down,
Out of those clouds…..
Into her reality
She is alone
But her smile remains.
As does that certain promise she tries always to remember.
He is indeed out there….
Mark 10:8-9 “and the two shall become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
