True love sets your standards high,
But it cannot be confined to the standards of this world..
True love looks at the good and the bad
But it doesn’t merely rely on what the eyes can see..
True love starts with admiration
But along the way you accept more than admire..
True love can be defined using words so many
But defining it means you act more than you speak..
True love is finding the Ideal one,
But it’s always God’s idea of Ideal and not ours…
True love makes you do crazy things
But all those crazy things combined are nothing compared to being patient and kind..
True love puts someone at the center of your universe,
But the joy it brings is meant to be shared with the rest of the world..
True loves makes you say, “It’s time”
But only God can tell if it really is.. time..
True love, then, gives you patience to wait
But in waiting you do not count the days..
For True Love comes to those whose waiting was not spent on searching,
But on living fully for others as if they are not waiting at all..
True love comes when love is real,
And love only becomes real when you put your trust on God’s perfect will, not on what you feel..
True Love happens..
Just wait and see it happen. =)

The longings of our hearts are legitimate. We cannot deny the truth that all of us are desiring to be with someone one way or another. We long for approval, acceptance, forgiveness, faithfulness and love.
St. Augustine said‘Our hearts are restless unless it find their rest in God alone’.
True enough, our deep longings and desires are connected to what God wants for our life.

You are the reason of this yearning
This heart that has taken you captive
The longing won’t subside, can’t wait ‘til you come
