A View

A View


It all started with a
Click on the screen
To look and view
The guy in the blue

He looked so handsome
And so strong too
Thoughts wondering through her head
Could he be the one for you?

She viewed the profile
He had wrote
Filled with many words
Describing himself in hopes
He may get a short note

She sent a short message
To say hello
And to let him know
He sounded like a very interesting fellow

She was surprised
When she got a reply
From a man who
Lived so far away on the highway

Notes were sent
Back and forth
From the woman
In the South
To the man in the North

He emailed his phone number
With a short note to say
If you would kike to call
I would enjoy hearing from you today

She dialed the number
He answered on ring two
To say can I call you
Back in a few?

He called a bit later to talk
They chatted and chatted
For hours on end
Each getting to know one another
Wondering just who was
The person on the other end

Much past, present and history
Were shared by both
They laughed and laughed
And smiled a lot

The clock flew by midnight
Cinderella she was not
Both hated to hang up
For the talk they enjoyed
But 6 AM would come
Up quick soon

He called the next morning
To wake the sleeping beauty
It made her feel so good inside

Her thoughts were wandering
All day long
About the person
She was getting to know
She looked with anticipation
To hear his sweet voice again

The next call came
The words just flowed
They each other shared their
Visions and hopes
Of the life they want

She remembered him
Telling her the night before
God does not create mistakes

It has been so wonderful
The past few days
To talk and to share

Her mind could start spinning
With so many thoughts
She takes a moment
To become quiet within

Lord let me enjoy this
New friend in life
He is a man of faith
A man that you created
For a purpose and a plan

As we get to know
One another
Please keep us safe
In our travels
And bless us each day

I give thanks to you Lord
For sending him my way!

May the two enjoy and have fun
But most of all give
Thanks for your Son the blessed one!

Alrighty then.. after rereading this one.. I thought man.. .we sure do get caught up in the excitement of new relationships! :cool:
After the first call.. the first date- writing afterward


Well.....what happened next?

Well since you asked .... here was the next writing after meeting him:

The Nest

It was a quiet Sunday morning. We sat on the deck side by side with the sun shining bright. You and I. . With the warmth of the sun shining on us and our feet propped up, enjoying a fresh cup of coffee and enlightening conversation. The glistening pool was beneath us. Amidst it all was a Mother Morning Dove flying back and forth ever so graciously. She would go to the side yard and get a piece of straw then fly back to the nest she was building.

We sat there in awe watching this task she had set before herself. She was intent on building the nest one straw at a time. Our conversation turned towards the whole meaning of her building a nest for the ones she loved. She was taking her time and doing it right.

The analogy of this awesome sight was reflecting it upon relationships people build within their own lives. Would people not be better off if they took the time to build their relationships like that? This world we live in now can be so fast paced and hectic. Everyone always seems in such a hurry no matter what they do.

Would a foundation of a relationship not be stronger, if two people took their time to really get to know each other? There is so much love that can grow between two.
A love that could last forever. Taking the time to share, to laugh and to care. Oh what an awesome feeling it can be.

I shared so much of me as you did with me in just a few days. We had the opportunity to see each other laugh; we felt the pain of the other when speaking of the past. A past that is now gone but at times may arrear in a conversation or two.

We worshipped together that morning in the Lord’s house. With our heads bent in prayer, the tears began to flow. Tears of happiness. Tears of thanksgiving. Tears of such joy!

When I reflect back to the elegant Mother Morning Dove, I think of you. I want that same security she felt. I want for us to take the time to build our foundation strong.
There are hectic times that will come rushing in. There is I am sure plans that may need to be altered. Life does not come with any guarantees except one. The one exception is the love that the Lord has for us all including you and me.

I look forward to reaching out to the one above to guide us and bless us.
I look forward to growing “one straw at a time”.

From the first moment I saw you until this moment as I type the words across the screen,

I felt it
I felt it all
A strong emotional connection
A love that can say it all
