The Haunting.......

the whispers come.... in the night...out in my yard...

in the mountain breeze that blows through my hair...

"come, Beloved, there is something more"...

my Lover calls from the mountain, from the hills...

"awake....Awake... can' t you see that I've led you here?
don't turn away...I've been preparing you for this...
this wild romance....you know...your heart knows..."

He's beckoning... "come....I'm waiting....it's time....."

Oh, my heart! There IS a place for a wild, passionate heart in this Christian journey. It's not something that has to be tamed or tempered..... My God put it there to lead me to Him....
Hallelujah!!!

(Journal entry while reading "The Sacred Romance".... a MUST read for anyone who has felt the haunting and has embarked on this journey of faith..... )

I love it, I love it!! I feel the much the same way about the landscape here. It calls to my heart, beckons me toward the Creator of it all.

Oh, how He woos us!!

I love this for you, Blue. Love that you hear Him beckoning you, wooing you, loving you. Love that your heart leaps in response to His call. Love that your feminine joy splashes out in laughter and surprise and exclamation at Him.

Blue, what beautiful words to pair with a beautiful landscape.

PS: I got a chuckle out of your husband's new forge. "Rednecks" are nothing if not ingenious!
