Desire’s Song

Desire’s Song

****************

Desire is not met in luxuries

nor in exotic travels to foreign lands

but by companionship of kindred hearts

between one woman and one man

~

No castle needed with a moat

for safety of their love to thrive

but by commitment ย of their goodwill

between them both while they’re alive

~

No crown of jewels to flaunt about

such eyes do sparkle far beyond

but by much care and attentiveness

between their lips a lover’s song.

My husband and I love checking out all of our local parks.

This one is in a prestigious neighborhood.

After I had this poem written and the pictures in place,

I wasn’t sure what I was going to say – until…

My husband mentioned a wealthy couple he did some work for in this area.

He told me about their home (castle) and the big toys with it.

His tone was not one of envy.

My husband said that he noticed a distinct sadness in the wife’s eyes.

There was something missing in the castle.

I suspect it is the Presence of the risen King that is missing.

Our humble (and adorable) home needs a new kitchen ย floor, thermal windows, and a bigger fridge;

we have three teenagers.

~

But our home is full of his Presence.

It is a home with love and prayers.

Grace abounds and joy regularly visits.

The next time I notice the cracked kitchen floor…

I’m going to say, “Thank you, Lord, for your Presence; thank you for this castle of love!”

Royal Presence Blessings ~ Wendy

Hug your family!
