Dreams

wedding1 From childhood i've imagined the man of my dreams.. will he come.. and sweep me off my feet? the white horse.. the castle in the clouds.. the kiss that unlocks the soul.. In innocence, the bliss of one united spirit draws the hearts of many girls to entertain deep desires of longing fulfilled, a ravished heart captivated... the one who will bring all mysteries to light.. no more searching or wondering, "who will complete my cycle of restlessness.. and finish it with wholehearted abandonment." but as girl grows to woman.. those dreams fade away... and the reality of all you've longed for comes crashing down.
wedding2 the hopeless search of the world around you for the "quick fix" gets old.. the theory of "the right lover for the moment" just doesn't seem to live up to those hidden expectations. so you're hit with the choice, "do i settle.. and remain a wanderer in my soul.. knowing my prince is out there.. but resigning my dreams for temporal adjustment?" and then your heart responds: no. wait. prepare your heart for the one who is to come. the perfect bridegroom. hes waiting for you. and you are worth it, oh most desireable beauty. be ready, night and day... for he might appear at any hour. so, i stand.. awaiting.
wedding3 and then, like a trumpet resounding in the deep, a revelation revealed!! this bridegroom is no mere man.. but all truth, holiness, purity, beauty, glory, power, and abundant joy that could ever abide in one person. your beauty erupts, your soul responds, and like a blossoming flower your heart says, "yes, i am ready to walk, to sing, to dance before the king who asks me to reign with him!!" and so i come, committed in my heart to the joys of marriage, to the blessings of intimacy. something i only imagined as a fairy tale.. is no fable of fantacy.. but reality. and hopelessness dissolves.
wedding4 then the journey, the beautiful journey of forgetting past hurts and let-downs, and rejoicing in the miracle before your eyes of all your dreams fulfilled begins. something you never thought possible. the warrior and intimate lover, is now your best friend. your walk is perfect. his stride is measured. and the perfect peace of your united souls is all the mind can comprehend. a faceless encounter with the redefiner of beauty is the song on your lips and the joy in your heart. no one.. not even the most satisfied of lovers could boast of such immovable perfection.
and there is it my friends. its perfect. its right. its real. if you open your heart, he will go there with you. beautiful bride of anticipation, your wait is over. you've found him. and he has stolen your heart. respond. its the most impossible journey that has become reality because of a greater love than we can ever imagine.
