MIRRORS: GUEST POST POETRY OF ORKIDEDATTER, ORKIDEDATTER ❤️

I am so honered and blessed, thank you Yeka, you filled my heart with so much love and joy.

This community is blessed to have you here, and I am so grateful to you️. You are a lovely soul with a heart of gold and I cheer on you️️.

Well, it is all about love and .. here I go…. my mind twisted and my heart was dancing to my soul thoughts….

Love is hard to describe, but easy to recognize.

In other words; When you first encounter love, maybe true love, you know with yourself that it is what you know.

And when you doubt your feelings, it’s because they’re not real. This is certainly true in many cases. But it is not always the case. For the nature of love is not at all equal for everyone. On the contrary, everyone experiences it in its unique way.

It is difficult to define love and describe how love feels. We must distinguish between love and falling in love. Love is a much stronger feeling than falling in love and needs some time to come forward.

Falling in love is something that you will experience several times in your life, but once many will experience a life-long love. Eventually, this love is transformed into something we call love.

But love is so much more. In every day life I always do small things with great love, because life is fragile. I always tell them I love that “I love you” because life is vulnerable and everybody is on this earth for borrowed time…

So, love more, spread the word and be love.

Love can be spoken in many languages and can be expressed in many ways. I have chosen to express love with this poem.

Coloring Your Day

Much we will meet

we must master many things

get up and listen to the day

the sun’s rays

that arouse your feelings in you

white butterflies wing strokes

what color do you choose today

the path is as new as yesterday

a new chapter in your life

must be written

listen to the depths of yourself

feel your heartbeat

feel your pulse

the fjord is as blue and shiny

as it flows like blood in your veins

your glance catches me

feel the darkness when the day is over

there is more we can still feel

what we can understand

the moon is just as new 

but is just as secret 

like the day tomorrow

the distant hills of nature remind us

about a bygone era

will never return

with the next morning break you can

make your best day

you can hear someone whispering 

you in the ear

that everything should be well done 

not be afraid 

as a white butterfly should be colored 

so can you choose your color of the day

make it your best with great love.

MIRRORS: GUEST POST POETRY OF BRAD, COMMONSENSIBLY SPEAKING ❤️

REFLECTED TRUTH

When I look into the mirror

Is it me I really see

Or some mere reflection

Of who I want to be

The face seems familiar

A two-dimensional view

But holds no depth of soul

The me does not shine through

I see deep lines and furrows

Carved by passing years

They do not show life full lived

No tell of steadfast fears

I see a mouth, a nose, and ears

Where they were just yesterday

I wonder if I would want to hear

What this man has to say

I worry if the man gazing back

Knows me like he should

Does he see a lesser person

Or perceive a lesser good

How do I tell this man

My failures on this side

To meet the expectations

To live our lives with pride

He must share my looks

Always shares my sorrow

For when he looks back at me

He’s hoping for tomorrow

Is this who I really am

This flat and time-worn face

I’d hoped for a greater man

To stare back in his place

DOORS: GUEST POST OF RYAN, RYAN CALLAHAN’S BLOG ❤️

Hi friends! I’ve always loved doors! In my life, they represent fresh opportunities, adventures, pointers, lessons, revelations, celebrations, and more.

In our WP community, opening doors translates into a renewed appreciation for our beloved fellow bloggers and their deeply cherished blogs.

Through my Doors Series, I aim to give our fellow bloggers the gift of sharing a piece of their world. I invite them to guest post on my blog and share their message, their story, their heart. I also encourage them to show how our blogs and worlds link together in love.

After all, IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE.️❤️

Today, we happily knock on the door of a dear fellow blogger:

Ryan from Ryan Callahan’s Blog ❤️


Hello everyone and God bless you all!  My name is Ryan Callahan.  My blog (www.AuthorRyanC.com) is all about helping people come to know Jesus, helping people understand the Bible, and ministering to a lost and hurting world.  Yeka has invited me to do a guest post for her blog, and I am honored and blessed to do it!  Thank you Yeka!  Your joyful heart is very encouraging!  Since Yeka’s blog is all about love, I would like to share God’s definition of love with you and show you just how much God loves you!

TRUE LOVE

We all like love, but what is love?  What does love look like?  I have good news!  God’s Word, the Bible, answers that for us!  The Book of 1 Corinthians contains a set of verses known as the love verses that teach us what love truly is.  Let’s take a look!

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.  But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-8)

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.” (1Corinthians 13:13)

What a beautiful definition of love, amen!  We also learn in the Book of 1 John that God is love!  Love is who He is!

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love.  Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4:16)

Since we know the definition of love from 1 Corinthians and we know that God is love, then we know God is made up of all those attributes of love and that is how He loves us!  God is patient, God is kind.  He does not envy, He does not boast, He is not proud.  He is not rude, He is not self-seeking, He is not easily angered, He keeps no record of wrongs.  God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  He always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  God never fails and God is the greatest!

God showed us just how much He loves us when He sent His Son into the world to die for our sins!  That is the greatest and most loving gift of all!  We only know what love is because of God!

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:9-10)

“We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19)

God loves us so much that He humbled Himself and became a man, Jesus Christ, in order to set us free from sin and death!  Jesus is God in human flesh, Jesus is Lord and Jesus loves you!  

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

My message of love to you all is that God loves you more than you could ever imagine and He wants you to be in Heaven with Him forever!  He wants to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life!  You receive God’s gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.  There is nothing you could ever do to earn this amazing gift of God’s grace.  It must be received by faith.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Jesus speaking in John 3:16

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

“This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.  There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:22-24)

Praise God for His great love for us!  His love is the true love we all need!  Come to Jesus today and let Him love you and save your soul!

Grace and peace to you all! 


Thanks so much for opening your door to us, dear Ryan! ❤️

You have shared a love that is unlike any other love. A love that know no bounds. A love that knows us all to our deepest core. A lot that embraces . A love that redeems. A love that gives eternal life. A love that is indescribably the very love we all need. The one True Love. God’s Love.

May you be blessed a billion times over for all the passion you have in sharing God’s Love!


So friends, thanks for dropping by!

MIRRORS: GUEST POST POETRY OF SAMYAK, ENIGMATICAL ❤️

Voices running in my head

Tearing me down in a haste

Blowing up a clamour

Blood simmered beneath my chest.

Reminds me of the spirited day

When we ruled all the way till dawn

Night went past gliding through

While stars glittered on and on

Hung up over the crescent moon

Gradient shadow loomed

Delusional tragedy shimmered through

While the colossal chasm bloomed.

MIRRORS: GUEST POST POETRY OF WILLIAM, STORIES OF ECSTASY ❤️

Love it’s power and it’s beauty-

Like a tranquil water it moves on,

Sometimes the waves are high,

Sometimes the tide is low,

It all depends on you,

How you handle your love,

The beauty cannot be defined,

It is more than a feeling or emotion,

It has left me speechless.

It has a glamour,

But also a dark side,

Diving deep into the glamour,

Full of divine complexion,

Love is dark and sad,

Full of despondency,

Betrayals from each side,

But still love is what you live for,

You were born with love,

You were nourished with love,

It has been supporting you since your childhood,

It’s like an old memory,

So don’t leave me behind,

I will come anytime,

Whenever you have fixed your date on calendar. 


Whoever is reading this post thanks a lot for taking out your time to read this post. You guys are the best and without you all, I won’t be able to make it till now where am I. Thanks all of you guys for your support and being through my entire blogging journey. WordPress is an amazing site. It is a platform where you can express your feelings and emotions. Once again, thanks a lot and I love you 3000. ❤️

DOORS: GUEST POST OF RENEE, HEART TOKENS ❤️

Hi friends! I’ve always loved doors! In my life, they represent fresh opportunities, adventures, pointers, lessons, revelations, celebrations, and more.

Through my Doors Series, I aim to give our fellow bloggers the gift of sharing a piece of their world. I invite them to guest post on my blog and share their message, their story, their heart. I also encourage them to show how our blogs and worlds link together in love.

After all, IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE. 

Today, we happily knock on the door of a dear friend and fellow blogger
:

Renee from Heart Tokens


Thank you Yeka for considering me for a guest post on your blog! I am truly and deeply honored! You are so very important to our WP community! Always bringing sunshine and smiles to our days! And your posts are so inspirational and full of love! 


I love Yeka’s theme, “It’s all about love.” That’s what every one of us should be about. To love as we would want to be loved. I am reminded of one of my favorite scriptures that sums up what love really is. I love this version:

“…Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.

But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.”
1 Corinthians 13:3-7, 13 MSG

For the last couple of days, I have been reminded that LOVE NEVER GIVES UP! Without going into details, a certain situation really hurt me this weekend. God never promised that when we love others with all our heart, that they will in turn treat us the same way. It’s a lot of times the total opposite. People who love deeply, a lot of times get hurt deeply. 

I wanted and felt like giving up on this person. I was just fed up with the drama…just being honest…But I was reminded in several of your posts yesterday and today, that LOVE doesn’t EVER give up, because God never gives up on us. 

We all need those reminders that it’s all about LOVE. Let the negativity roll like water off a duck’s back! Don’t let it cling to you. We have to shake it off and keep loving like Jesus!

I could share so many ways that love has changed my life. Like tonight for instance. I texted to check on someone. Long story short, this person blessed my heart! They showed that love that Jesus loves us with! I was encouraged and was totally crying my eyes out! Now that my friend is LOVE IN ACTION!

That LOVE is what my blog is really about. It started with sharing my “Love Tokens” from God. A lot of times when I have been praying or going through something, a dragonfly will appear really close to me or I will find or see hearts in the strangest places! I feel they are His love letters to me! 

There are others here who are seeing the hearts, as well! I do believe that God loves us all so much that He wants us to know. 

He wants us to know that He understands what we are going through. That He hasn’t left us. He’s always watching over us. He cares, and He has a place prepared for those He loves! I’m excited about that! Heaven will be ALL ABOUT LOVE!!! 

I want to thank everyone here on WP—it’s like a network of LOVE. A lot of people here are so kind and love like Jesus! I am so grateful to be a part of this great big family! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart! And remember, I’TS ALL ABOUT LOVE!!!


Thanks so much for opening your door to us, dear Renee! ❤️

You speak with such warmth and fervor. We feel your love and passion for Jesus. We feel your sweetest appreciation for our WP family. And we embrace you in love.

May your days be filled with abounding blessings and signs of God’s Love. And may your heart be filled with many more smiles. After all, your greatest gift that you bless us with is your lovely heart! ❤️


So friends, thanks for dropping by!

Do give Renee a special knock on Heart Tokens!

Till our next run of Doors, I wish everyone many happy, love-filled days ahead.

And here’s looking forward to opening more Doors with you!
