If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Finding Love's Path



Think not that you can direct

the course of love,

for love, if it finds you worthy,

directs your course.



Love has no other desire

but to fulfill itself.



But if you love and must

needs have desires,

let these be your desires :



To melt and be like a running brook

that sings its melody

to the night



To know the pain

of too much tenderness



To be wounded by your own

understanding of love

And to bleed willingly

and joyfully



To wake at dawn with a winged heart

and give thanks for another day

of loving



To rest at the noon hour

and meditate love's ecstasy



To return home at eventide

with gratitude



And then to sleep

with a prayer for the beloved

in your heart

and a song of praise

upon your lips


From The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran




Blessings to all,

ANGEL, JANET AND KAT,

I am so glad that you all like it. I found my old books of Kahlil Gibran and started reading again.

I wish I can also write poetry.

Blessings to all of you!

JACKIE, these are beautiful words from a master poet. How I wish I can write poems myself.

I got this image from photobucket a long, long time ago and saved it. It is truly beautiful and I even posted it on my footer as well.

Have a blessed weekend, Jackie!

JHONY, I'm glad you like the poem. Khalil Gibran is indeed a great poet.

Absolutely divine and so inspiring.

Love is so simple if people would just accept it for what it is and not expect from it.

Love should come as natural as the sun an rain.

So nice!
Thank you for such a warm thought!

GINA, these are beautiful words from a man of great wisdom.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
