Marilyn, impatience is the route to disaster...don't have to say that twice.
Marge, if I've learned anything at all - "fools rush in" I will probably be tiptoing the rest of my life...LOL
PdV - quite a compliment...TY much.
SEA, thank you so much but really, there is no hurry for me....I think I need much healing before I could be good for anybody at this juncture.
Gen, "ISN'T" it though?
Corrinne, some wise person once said "He who stands strongest - stands alone." ( to Gen). I don't think they called him wise for nothing.
Compgirl, Love is God's gift. One must accept it from Him first if he is to ever fully understand it. Only when he fully understands it, will it ever be his to truly give it. I must work on my walk with Christ before I will ever utter that word again.
A Romantic Heart - well I haven't seen a Sunny Day for almost a month now, literally. But the stars were shining tonight, I am ever in anticipation of a warm tomorrow.
Claire, the repeated "wonder" was very much intentional. It is meant to reveal the very much unspoken longing to be everything Love perhaps accounts for - behind the vulnerability you speak of. You have left me breathless and teary eyed many times...glad I could return you the favor on this one.
Janet, as I stated earlier, I will allow God to grant me love in His timing. He is the only avenue where I will persue it at this time.
devina - pondering profusely would better describe it me thinks...LOL The answer will come with time, of that I am sure.
Thank you all for the replies,
