please don’t come

Please don't come if you will give me your attention but you won't clarify your intention. Please don't come if you'll make me feel loved and then leave me hanging and confused. Please don't come if you're unsure about your feelings and just sorting experiences. Please don't come if you couldn't tuck up your courage and pursue the right way.

Please, stay where your feet are. You can move in different directions and meet other women who are less vulnerable and sentimental. Please don't fetch me at work if you have nothing to do nor bring coffee to my table. Please don't tap my head when my shoulders are heavy. Please don't gaze at my eyes and tell your grandiose visions of the future. Please don't make any grand gestures that would make any woman fall deeply in love.

Please don't come until you're ready.

Love at First Meet

It's been a year since you left me, but I am grateful you break my heart in that way. I realized that love is so whimsical, we can love without expecting any return; we can always give love because the more we pour out love, the more we feel loved.

Discovering the blessing

"People are trying to bless themselves, the fulfillment we're trying to look in work, skyscrapers, in having wonderful spouse, in having children or making a lots of money, the blessing that we're looking for is actually in the face of God. The blessing we need is in Jesus himself." Tim Keller

Intimacy is emotionally invasive; it requires knowing and being known. But the vulnerability and the self-denial that intimacy necessitates can often feel too costly. So we substitute doing for knowing and giving for being known. We show our love in other ways, we reason. But intimacy has no other way. Without time, without attention, without listening, without touch, we can call it what we like, but it is not intimacy. Alicia Britt Chole

Stepping out in Faith

Inhaling His grace and savoring the beauty of life. And I pray that my journals will transcend into the spaces that need them the most.
