Pieces Of My Heart

My Bloggie designer Mackenzie asked me what I wanted for my next template and header. As always I was going to leave it up to her. Sometimes I think she knows me better than I know myself.

But she then emailed me again and asked if I wanted something with the theme Valentines in it. As I read the word "Valentines" I just couldn't help but giggle. I pressed replied and told her I wasn't real big on "Single Awareness day" As I hoped she got a laugh out of that and reassured me she could have hearts on my blog without making it valentine-y.

Well, I happen to love what she did with the place! And not only that but she inspired me in writing a post that was way over due...

Many of you know I am a single gal. And most of the time I am happy about that. I can focus on my career and my family without having to check my phone to see if my love text me or having to juggle my lesson plans with dates.

But there are times where I read a Lori Wick novel or I watch someone close to me who is in love and I think "Lord,when will it be my turn?"

See, I am having a hard time writing this post because I want to get the right message across I am not home every night just wishing I had someone but I am also not hoping that someday my prince won't come. Does that make sense?

Well, all of that to say when I saw my header I just had to smile. That heart has a piece missing and when I saw that I thought "Pieces of my heart I got it!" But I also thought "That missing piece will come when God is ready to show him to me."

All my single bloggie friends, just wait God will show you your prince when He is ready to reveal him to you. You just keep hopping on with that one glass slipper on because when you least expect it you will see your prince carrying the other one.


My ending to this post is simply this: guide that spot on your heart don't let any one try to put their piece in your heart only allow the one that "fits" in that spot. And of course the only one that would"fit" is the one that God has planned for you. Don't settle for anything less. You deserve the best after all you are a princess!

I LOVE the way you worded: "You just keep hopping on with that one glass slipper on because when you least expect it you will see your prince carrying the other one."
You go, girl! :)

"We were given two hands to hold, two legs to walk, two eyes to see, two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else for us to find."

Oh phooey. So my first one didn't work. :P

Well, I was saying that I loved that line about 'hopping on one glass slipper' too. :) Do those kind of lines just come spur of the moment or do you have to think for a few minutes? ;)

And I was also saying that our great minds (haha!) must be thinking alike, because after the adorable-little-boys-with-bears pictures, then you posted this after I had just been working on a 'single' post!!! (Who knows if I'll ever get it finished and posted though! :P)

Oh and yes, you did make sense. ;)

Thanks for the words, yet again it's great to know I am not the only girl out there who is "You just keep hopping on with that one glass slipper on" and waiting for God to bring her one (mind you I said one) man into her life!

Now, to get my "Waiting On God" post out. :D
