"Till it happens to you....."

Hello Blog World!

Its been a while since I've blogged! It's been almost a month! But  I finally have something on my heart tht lately was so much on my mind that I decided to blog about it.

I've been thinking about the future. I've been thinking about the present and the past. I've been thinking about love that is to come, people I will soon meet, decisions to be made, and becoming a young adult.

Granted these are things I believe most people think about as seniors in high school. Being the hopeless romantic I am, I often find myself thinking about love and when I will fall in love. To be in love is a feeling all should experiance at some point in their life time. Love is such a gift, after all, the greatest example of love is Christ Himself and His love for all of us being so great that He would send His son to die on the cross for all of our sins! So that we might have eternal life in Heaven with Him. I don't know what you think love is, but that is love to me! . So I know love to be no less than a perfect feeling.

I am a single young woman, I've dated but all those relationships I considered to be love, I grew up to realize were simply crushes. I do long to be in love but I am more than willing to wait because I'd hate to rush into a love that weren't true all because I was impatient.

So as the hopeless romantic I am, I encourage you to continue to pray for your future mate as He/She is probably just as eager to meet you and in time it will be! Haha my love for music inspires me to think fondly of the times where I am young,free, and single ( & ready to mingle ;) lol lol jk jk!)  but also gives me inspiration for the poems and songs I write based on my experiences and love is the best inspiration! I am young to be "trying to fall in love", sure! Here are two songs that explain best what my heart feels and what my thoughts are right now. They are all by an amazing artist, Corinne Bailey Rae, whose soothing voice and creative lyrics express exactly how I feel at this point in my life! enjoy and check out Corinne Bailey Rae at http://www.corinnebaileyrae.net/

Songs:
Breathless- Corinne Bailey Rae- about feeling love for someone, perhaps a friend, and noticing how the world always seems to be in love when you are not or wish to be....I feel this way sometimes but hey! One day I will be the one holding hands with the man I love so ha! lol ;)  <3

Butterfly- Corinne Bailey Rae- about growing up wrapped in the love, care, and support of loving parents and getting to the age where it is time for you to ":fly off on your own" like a butterfly ;) Since I'm going to be a college student very soon I can relate to this song! I will be very homesick but it is time for me to spread my wings ! ;)

Till it happens to you-Corinne Bailey Rae- about learning what love is and what being in love feels like. Best lyric "you won't believe what love can do, till it happens to you..." This song speaks to me because I don't believe I've ever been in love but I do know that when I am I will know <3 ;)


Corinne Bailey Rae  is that artist who writes the songs that are the soundtrack to my life! I love her and I encourage you to check her out or find an artist who writes the songs,poems, etc that encourage you when your heart is heavy with thoughts of fear, love, dreams, the future, etc. Music for me is an amazing release of  stress and so very soothing!

God Over Everything!
 God bless you! xoxo
