If human love doesn’t carry a man beyond himself, it is not love.~ Oswald C. Chambers

Happy Tuesday guys, today’s prompt is Enchantment. Hope you’re all having a great week full of love, happiness and gratitude. Recognize God’s hand in small things and be grateful.
Oswald C. Chambers in his book, My Utmost for His Highest says;

If love is always discreet, always wise, always sensible and calculating, never carried beyond itself, it’s not love at al. It may be affection, it maybe warmth of feeling but it has not the true nature of love in it.

Enchanted?

In this respect, I can definitely say that I have never wholly loved someone or let my heart love. In this depth. Maybe because I am guarded and I am always looking for the other shoe to drop  because they just can’t be this nice. There has to be a smoking gun. I’m looking to get deeper in my relationship with Christ before any relationship. I am just tired and flirting/chatting seems like a lot of walk unlike when it felt like skipping in the rain.
I am a hopeless romantic, having read all novels by Mills and Boon, Silhouette and Intrigue publishers. However I am a realist, I calculate and deal with facts and this is what Oswald Chambers terms as not love.
The grandest gesture somebody has ever done to me in love? I can’t remember even if I turned my head upside down. That means whatever I ever counted as grand is not grand anymore, I don’t know.
That’s alright.

Intentionally Single?

Fun fact: In the small number days I have been single I’ve come to notice my faults, not the normal flaws each of us has, but the small misgivings that keep me from stepping from the boat and walking on water.This is the correct time  to deal with them because I see and feel them.  This is the first time that I am intentionally single.
Yesterday someone could not understand why there is no ring on my finger and that just showed be that God’s time is the best and it’s clearly not here yet.

Right now I am not reading any romance book or fantasy novel. I’ve long since ventured into other genres. However, maybe I’ll get back to them and give you a review.
What’s the grandest gesture of love someone has ever shown to you? Let me know in the comments.

PS:  This post was supposed to be published yesterday but better late than never.

    Ah yes, now is the time! “because I see and feel them” Perfect. Work on being your best self and loving your best self – and the right person for your life will come along. I believe that, too. <3

    The best decision I have ever made was to be single and work on me. That gave me enough space and time to evaluate myself, my faults and what exactly I wanted from a partner and what I give to them. You see we fail at love because we always expecting to receive what we are unable to give out. So finding myself and healing my wounds was a process I will forever cherish. When I met my husband I was in a good space to give love and I knew what I deserved in return and he gives me just that.
    The grand gift I have received So far is the ability to be in a marriage and still be myself and chase after my desires.
