The Cracked Open Beauty

Beautiful flower in a dry, cracked ground.

Yes, beautiful and yes in a dry and cracked ground. Beauty in God’s eyes isn’t about appearances, it’s about the way He created us to be and who He wants us to become. Dry and cracked, because I often find myself walking in a place where the living water has dried up, because often people are so desperate the tears of joy have become tears of sadness and lost hope, no faith, few understand that true love isn’t an emotional love. “The truest form of Love is how you Behave toward someone, not how you Feel about them”.

I’m a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a writer, a friend. I cook, clean, work, teach, study, live, love and laugh, but when it’s all said and done, I still feel empty. I want what I can’t have, I’ve wanted it for a long time but it was taken. I thought to myself, the desire for it should go away now that I’ve prayed…I’ve cried, begged, pleaded and even pretended it wasn’t there; I cry out to God and beg Him to please just take this from me, do something to strip me of the earthly desires, of the evil in my heart and nothing happens…it’s still there and some days it’s hard to swallow and suck down the tears inside, it hurts so much and in one brief moment, it could all be gone so quickly! He gives me words to bless others with and release my own thoughts.
