My Soul Mate by Carol Eliassen

It’s not every day that I tell my husband he is my soul mate.  It has been inscribed on an anniversary clock and I have spoken it several times but today I not only want to tell him what that means to me but to show him as he is growing older with me.  Today is his birthday and I want him to know that I cherish every day that we have together. 

What is a soul mate?  I think to be a person’s soul mate that you are in step with their life as they are with yours.  They cherish you, love you through sickness and health and truly believe till death do you part.  They are there when you need them for the good times as well as the bad.

I know my husband has been there for all of it.  When I had cancer he took me to surgeries and treatments.  He waited hours for me in boring Hospital waiting rooms and greeted me with a smile and a touch of a hand.  He listened to me once when I had a pity party and told me that it was out of character for me but he understood and listened anyway. 

I know what a soul mate isn’t.  It’s not someone who is selfish and thinks only of themselves.  It’s not someone who goes through life disconnected from their partner.  It’s not someone who distances themselves from their partner but also their family.  

It’s someone who cherishes the moments that God gives us to love that person he brought into their life.  A soul mate understands what love truly is. The soul mate celebrates the birth of a child, a grandchild or even the adoption of a new family pet.  They provide words of comfort or even silence when you need it the most. 

My soul mate worships God and the love for Jesus.  My husband prays with me and over me.  He leads me through prayer and prays for his family.  My soul mate puts God first and I’m okay with that since I do too. 

So today is his birthday and I want to say how much I love him and how much he means to me as I go through life with him.  I want to celebrate his birth not only today but everyday God blesses me with his presence and love.  apHHappy

Happy Birthday my Sweetheart of a Soul Mate!

The tides of the Caspian Sea seemed to sway in perfect rhythm. I cannot fully understand it or describe it in perfect detail. Trust me it was different.

An Unfortunate Soul

I closed my eyes, and opened them, but all I could see was darkness. I felt a pain beginning in my toes and spreading upward through my feet, legs, thighs and then it zoomed to the top of my torso, neck, and head. My arms felt like darts shooting flames at the very same time. I clinched my teeth in utter pain and couldn’t comprehend what exactly was happening. Where was I? What happened after I went to bed and fell asleep? Could this be a nightmarish dream, or have I died and gone to …oh no, couldn’t be. There is no Hell. I was so sure of it. I kept thinking I would wake up and it would be just a bad dream. I had heard a street preacher this past week talk about repentance and belief in Jesus, or we would suffer eternal damnation. I had yelled out to him that at least I would be in good company partying away with my friends, who also did not believe. He responded that my friends would not be with me, nor God. I would be alone. All alone. My eyes were open, but I saw no flames, only

Love is Eternal

Love at First Sight The first time I saw your face Time stood still I didn’t know why But it was so, so surreal. I couldn’t speak the words. They came out all jumbled and weird I thought you wouldn’t want to know me Because I came off so bizarrely unreal. You seemed to think it was cute I thought that was something strange You wanted to get to know me I kept thinking you must be deranged. You laughed at my words. That didn’t seem so clearly spoken. I started to sense Our feelings were mutually beholden. My eyes sparkled From your reflection I didn’t want to close my eyes And have you deflected. You grabbed my hand And I didn’t pull away You had that magic touch And I refused to stray. Yesterday seems like a distant memory You’re still here by my side I can’t believe our love has never died. I gained confidence With you by my side You lifted me up And never said goodbye. Others come and go But you remained And your love for me It has never strayed. You gave me hope To believe in tomorro
