L.O.V.3

Love, in all its forms and shapes is always difficult.

This is the part that they don’t tell you when they write those Disney fairytales, but you will most likely learn it as soon as you fall in love and learn that Prince Charming scratches his arse, leaves the cap off the toothpaste and takes off his socks right where he is standing. This is also probably around the time you will realise that although it is not what you were promised, LOVE, in all its forms, has always been the same and has always remained as beautiful as you’ve always thought it to be.

If love is a lie, best believe that it is the most beautiful lie that we have, so today I encourage you to see and find love wherever you look and wherever you are. It doesn’t have to be with your signficant other, it can simply be the caring colleague who brings you coffee in the morning, the hug your little baby gives you when you drop him/her off at daycare or the sms you get saying “Good Morning”. How about the guy making a mixtape for his girl or the little girl who’s kissing her puppy? The little boy who’s watching his dad shave maybe, or the mom who’s dancing with her little girl. Somewhere out there today, there is a father who’s listening to his daughter’s stories with love in his eyes and a married couple dancing. The best for me, is the picture of the parents taking their child trick-or-treating, all wearing costumes from the same children’s movie…can you say BEST. PARENTS. EVER.??

Look around you and see it all around… That Carrie & Bigg kinda love, that Bonnie & Clyde type ish, that Romeo & Juliet kinda thing. That moment when you see a mother and her child holding hands. That moment when a new couple is so wrapped up in each other, the rest of the world disappears. That moment when you see that 80 year-old couple sitting at their regular table having lunch, everyday.

LOVE is even more beautiful when it can be captured and kept forever…

Here are a few pics I’ve come across that inspire that loving feeling in me:

Woman

When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being.

 

When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils.

 

But you, I fashioned after I breathed the breath of life into man because your nostrils are too delicate.

 

I allowed a deep sleep to come over him so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you.

 

Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity.

From one bone, I fashioned you.

 

I chose the bone that protects man’s life.

 

I chose the rib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, as you are meant to do.

 

Around this one bone, I shaped you…I modelled you.

I created you perfectly and beautifully.

 

Your characteristics are as the rib, strong yet delicate and fragile.

You provide protection for the most delicate organ in man, his heart.

His heart is the centre of his being; his lungs hold the breath of life.

 

The rib cage will allow itself to be broken before it will allow damage to the heart.

 

You are my perfect angel…You are my beautiful little girl.

You have grown to be a splendid woman of excellence, and my eyes fill when I see the virtues in your heart.

 

Your eyes…don’t change them.

Your lips – how lovely when they part in prayer.

Your nose, so perfect in form.

Your hands so gentle in touch.

I’ve caressed your face in your deepest sleep.

I’ve held your heart close to mine.

 

Of all that lives and breathes,  you are most like me.

Adam walked with me in the cool of the day, yet he was lonely.

He could not see me or touch me. He could only feel me.

 

So everything I wanted Adam to share and experience with me, I fashioned in you; my holiness, my strength, my purity, my love, my protection and support.

 

You are special because you are an extension of Me.

Man represents my image, woman my emotions.

Together, you represent the totality of God.

You are love, respected and fragile.

As I’m sure everyone has already noticed, I’ve always been a huge fan of colours…whether bright, pale or pastel, as long as its relatively gorgeous or unique, I fall. Just because South Africa is heading – or rather, has already headed – into another early winter, I see no reason to resort to dark and gloomy colours for the next three or four months.

Was looking at some beautiful colours that are doing the rounds lately and I absolutely HAD to share…enjoy them with me please. And don’t forget to never leave the house without a pop of colour!
