Love Falls


Him:    I love you!

Me:    I love you so much!

Him:    I love you so much more!   *kiss*

Me:    Thank you! I have a big smile 🙂 😉   *kiss*

Him:    I’m so happy that I made you smile 🙂

Sweet, huh?

That is not always the case because there was a time when the exchanges were, “I hate you!” and “I HATE YOU!”

Bitter, yeah.

Most of us might have tasted how bittersweet love can be. It will be the case as long as we are humans. And humans expect. And humans fall short of each other’s expectations.

Since human falls, love falls.

It falls…

But it can be picked up

And put altogether

But no, the pieces cannot be put all together

There will be cracks and holes and deformities

The question is, “What do you do with it?”

Glue it with insincere repentance?

Fill it with temporary pleasures?

Straighten things up to our satisfaction?


Let God seep through every crack.

Let God fill in the holes.

Let God show us that there is really no deformity

But something special.

And what do you do with something special?

Love it!


He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. – Psalm 147:3

    Hello… Very interesting post… Loved the videos 🙂
    The thing that is most misunderstood when people enter into a relationship is that there will be good days and bad days no matter what. That is life…life is unpredictable and uncontrollable to a degree. What people need to learn is how to not allow the bad things to affect them in their relationship and that our partners are not to blame when we are not happy or when we are having a bad day, unless of course they are directly at fault in regards to either.
    To expect one’s love to be perfect and without feeling is to not know real love. A real Love is unconditional in everyway or it simply is not real at all~

    These are my thoughts~

      Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. What I know is marriage can really be challenging not because I have to deal with an imperfect person but I myself is imperfect.

      My gauge if all the problems in my marriage can be solved is — will I have a perfect marriage if I married a perfect man (granted that there is)? Sadly the answer is no — because there are times that I am not happy or satisfied with myself — and myself is half of that marriage! Half? And where is God in the equation?

      This had me thinking — is marriage about 50/50 or 33.3/33.3/33.3 or about wholeness of each part?

      Pardon me — because sometimes I don’t really make sense but for sure, I appreciate very much your thoughts. Blessings to you 🙂

    Dear Princess Rea

    I have fallen so behind on my reading, but I am glad this is the one I came back to 🙂

    I really want Him to seep through every crack and fill up every hole. Thank you!

      Anne, I find much beauty in the vintage, reclaimed and upcycled. It has more character — and love in it?

      How much more beautiful and loved we are if He seeped through every crack and fill up every hole? Soooo beautiful and soooo loved 🙂

  3. This is so beautiful. The dialogue you wrote reminds me of a passage of scripture.

    We love him, because he first loved us. 1John 4:19

    This has me crying sweet spoon! God bless you and shine through you today! love you!

      Love never fails to make us cry whether we’re overloved or underloved. See, this human is measuring it and surely someone is bound to fail — crazy 🙂
