Me, Never!

Sip, Sip, “Did you hear what he/she is doing?”

Sip, Sip, “I’ll never do something like that.”

Sip, Sip, “We’re better than that.”

Sip, Sip, “Let’s ignore them.”

Sip, Sip. GosSip time.

If someone was caught doing something wrong, would you turn your back on them and talk to and about them with disdain?

If someone was caught doing something wrong and you tell them about it,  were you being judgmental? What does it mean to be judgmental?

“Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.” Galatians 6 vs 1

Everyone should be given a chance to correct their mistakes, and yes, if a criminal act, be punish for it. But it is in the how we go about allowing them to make that correction. Not in a holier than thou sanctimonious attitude.

We are all open to temptation, how do we know that we are incapable of falling for the stuff that we see others do that we probably say that we will never do? This is not to say that we should start doubting ourselves and the strength in the things that we believe in.

Sights and Sounds

According to Woodrow Wyatt, “A man falls in love through his eyes, a woman through her ears.”

In the movie, The Truth About Cats and Dogs, Janeane Garofalo’s character, Abby said, “You forgot to say I love you because you’re beautiful.”

Ben Chaplin’s character Brian replies, “No, I didn’t. I mean, she is. But that’s not why I love her.”

A clear refute. The movie centers around three main characters, Abby, Brian, and the beautiful Noelle. Brian falls in love with Abby who is a talk show veterinarian, and who he has never met or seen before. She is afraid that he will not love her because of the way she looks, and so, she convinces Noelle to act as her on the premise that he and all men only look at the exterior when falling in love.

Not to say that some men will focus on something other than a woman’s face or body, just to say that some men don’t.

And as for all women falling for sweet talk, well not the case either.

But perhaps somewhere in all of us, there may be times when our feet want to go on the other side, or then again, maybe not. 😉

Which “ist” are you?

[Photo shot by Derek Jensen (Tysto)]

Is this glass of water half full, half empty, or both?

Ah, the pessimist, the optimist, and the realist, how does a person become or mold his/her self into  either one of these descriptions?

Are some of us born to see the world as just one big depressive place, a place of beauty no matter what negative things are happening, or a place that has its problems and challenges but they can be overcome?

Or do we thank nurture for it, our parents and the environment that we grew up in?

So, . . . which ist are you?

Mr and Miss Virgin

[Diane of Versailles (also known as Artemis, one of the three virgin goddesses) a Roman copy of a Greek sculpture by Leochares]

. . . Untouched

Like a fruit on a flourishing tree

that has not been touch,

they keep their vessels as the Lord required it to be,

pure, free from coitus until the

time that they should cleave to each other as one flesh.

. . . meets First

It happened that night–

beautiful blissful desire fulfilled.

You made me a part of you;

I made you a part of me.

We shared each other through an intimacy

of rapturous excitement; an ecstasy of joy.

That moment, that feeling forever,

etched in my mind.

My body tasted sexual pleasure

as we became one flesh.

With a golden circle on my finger,

you made me your wife;

I made you my husband.

You unlocked the chain of my innocence,

for I supplied you with the key.

I love you then as I love you now;

my First.

. . . continues.

. . . ends – Absent Touch

You would have slowly glided your

hand down my back,

enjoying my nakedness.

Your hands would find its way

to my breasts,

caressing them with such warmth.

Your kisses on my neck would

produced such ecstasy of joy.

You ran your fingers through my hair

as you whispered beautiful words into my ear.

You would lay your head on my chest

and listened to the racing of my heart;

it brought you pleasure.

You would take me in your arms,

our nude bodies understanding

the desires of each other.

You would take your hand and

entangled it with mine,

playfully moving our wedding rings around.

You would lay beside me, your breath

brushing the back of my neck.

And there we would stay until the morn broke;

the morn broke today, but you’re not here.

Happy Valentine’s Day. 🙂

Bite your tongue

Scenario. Wife asks husband, “Does this make me look fat?” or “Am I fat?”

Husband replies, “No dear.” or “Anything you wear makes you look beautiful.”

He is lying, and perhaps she knows that but does not correct him. Why?

Do we have a diplomatic attitude sometimes when dealing with people, you know when to say the right things and how to say them? Also when to withhold the truth, in other words, when to lie.

Which would you prefer, people giving it to you straight, that is, not lying, or biting their tongues, that is, not saying what they want and perhaps need to say?

Okay, switch

Is there a difference between long suffering and suffering long?

One of the fruits of the Spirit is, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, LONG SUFFERING, . . .” Galatians 5 vs 22

Do you apply patience, stoicism, perseverance among other things while dealing with problems, or, do you grumble, complain, frustrate the problems even more?

Not suggesting that either way will make what we are going through go away faster, just suggesting that how we deal with it might make it “easier”.

How we deal with the pain, the anguish, the hurt in life will dictate which one we apply to ourselves.

Desire?

Is desire greater than a want or less than a need? The reason I asked is because of this.

“Stranger than you dreamt it, can you even bear to look, or dare to think of me?… This lonesome gargoyle who burns in hell but secretly YEARNS for heaven secretly, secretly but Christine… fear can turn to love you’ll learn to see to find the man behind the monster this… repulsive carcass that seems a beast but secretly dreams of beauty secretly, secretly…”
from the movie The Phantom of The Opera

Those were the words of the Phantom to Christine Daae, and after them, he cried.

There was a desire to be with the person he loved; he compared it to heaven. But he did not get that love. Why? She did not love him; there was no yearning to be with him.

When you love someone, do you want to be around that person, or do you need to be around that person? Can it lead to an obsession?
