Happy Valentines Day!

Especially for the single young lady readers...


You're waiting for the day to be swept off your feet,
Dreaming of the blessed hour, when two hearts will meet.

It's easy to get caught up, lost in wishful thinking,
But a dream is just a dream until it becomes reality.

Let thine eye be single; guard your heart faithfully,
I know what is best, trust and abide in Me.

'Cause true love only comes from truly knowing Me.
I have a perfect plan - My child, wait paitently.

You are a king's princess, though maybe still a child,
With love I give these words:
Dream of Me and wait awhile.

-Jaclynn Robinson

Great poem! I'm always impressed by all your quotes and such....do you keep a book of them or something? How do you find them all?

What a wonderful poem. Such an encouragment to have the right focus. So many young ladies are waiting so patently or sometimes impatiently for that special somone, that they forget that singleness is the perfect time to Devote more time to the Lord,and that He is truly all we need. All the rest is just a bonus!!
