Last Night

Last Night I could not sleep.  I flipped and tossed and the only thing I could find myself playing with was my mind.  It was restless and I could not get any sleep.  

Last night, when I allowed my self to not be consumed about what someone else was not doing, it freed my mind instantly to dream and create.  I was up for 2 plus hours, in bed for 5, but it feels like i was there for 8.

I...

I am really realizing that sometimes you can keep swinging, giving, trying and helping.  But if that other person is not in the gear of receiving.  All of it can be pushed away. 

Today I am encourage that there is a road to travel, but it wont a long one.  I am encourage today to keep pushing and pressing.  They will appreciate me in the end for all that is been done.

So regardless of how many time they say you aint this or that.  Its ok.  The crowd declared Christ was not a lot of stuff, but he keep on pushing and pressing.  In the end the crowd turned around and said I love you for all you have done.

The bridges we have to cross to achieve love on the other side.  I am here for a reason.  I have accepted my calling to be that one that will minister to my wife.  Right now we are in the ring to fight for the same goal, not against one another.

My Love 4 Her - Lets Get It On

Mrs. Foxy


I am going to keep on loving you until you feel the brighter day.

Once that day arrives I will keep on loving you just to make sure it is rubbed in all the way.


Ephesians 5.25-26

Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, so that He might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word...

 

I Love You, Honor You and Praise You

Hey Baby

Dear Mrs. Foxy

 

Hey baby, I pray your days are coming along well.  Over the last week, we have discovered a lot.  I have also had a chance to listen to some people and gain some incite that I now take in as wisdom to love, life and etc.   People who just open there mouth and not realize that I am listening and taking notes too.

 

Here are some things that I personally have learned about really, change up and a different place.

 

A.      Really – That word has gained a negative connotation in society.  Research shows the word is suppose to be used to emphasize positive thoughts and reactions.  Not as a disclaimer to a positive action or thought shared with someone.  The root to the word really is real.  Real means Genuine.  Once you apply the l and y, you now add fake or disbelief.  When I share and tell you that you are “beautiful” and your response is, “really!”  It use to catch me off guard.  When I call you pretty or some other word of endearment I would except you to say thank you, I love you or etc.  Well I was not getting it at first nor as I thought I would.  I realized that somewhere in the mist of life someone may have called or done something that does not line up with the vows that we took for each other and all God created you to be.   Rather they called you ugly, something hatful, or just bad taste.  It’s caused you to build walls of protection up around your heart so that you could keep yourself from getting hurt which keeps you from being emotional about it, attached or from reacting to those bad thoughts, memories and actions.  Now here’s what’s describes it best.  Each time I tell you that “I love you” and you respond “really.”  Here’s what’s “really” taking place.  That wall of ugly, hate, shame and more that was once up is working its way down, brick by brick and one at a time.  The “real” aspect of it is, that you are starting to see the sun come through the cracks of those walls of hurt, pain and feel the sunshine of God on that precious and loving heart of yours and cute and adorable cheeks.  You are starting to feel all the hope and let loose the pain that has accrued.  Regardless if past, present or future.  Pain is pain. With love pain will not exist.  Each time I say “I love you”, “I honor you”, “I praise you”, “I appreciate you”, “I adore you”, “You are the best”, “you have the best”, “you are the greatest”, “you are the smartest”, “you are the loyalist”, “you are the best and sexiest of all time.”  Each of those are my sledge hammer of love knocking down the walls that have been protecting your loving, warm, passionate, loyal and giving heart.  From doing what is called to do, that is to be pure and love.  So from now on when I hear "really” I won’t get made nor bent out of shape, I will know and understand that I am almost there and you are almost set free.  When you reach that threshold and those walls grumbles down, I will be right there because from that day forward “really” will cease to exist because you will know that I am giving you is genuine and pure from the bottom of my heart.  Took me some time to figure out, but “really” – has been decoded.  I am working on “real.”

 

B.      Prayers - Today they have changed for you.  They are being more aligned with what’s going on our lives, not just yours or mines.  Time for these prayers to be lined up with all the riches and glories he has for you and I.  If I got it, so do you.  If you got it I will to.  So getting it alone does not exist. 

 

I as your husband has the responsibility to take some of your burdens and either bare them or hand them over and into the hands of Christ and God.  It is time for my prayer life to increase about our lives together.  No longer will my payers be solo.  They shall be about us and our growth in all ways.  It is as some old folks say, lay some timber up to the Lord.  Some wood for that fire of love that shall keep burning for the Lord.  What he has put together no man shall never burn apart.  It is time to refocus and hit some things like it is the first time.  Prayer, Faith, Love, Fasting; those things that this marriage was created on.  Don’t get me wrong, there are times when you might be called to pray for yourself, go for it.  As some say can’t knock the hustle.  As I grow in the Lord.  I know He no longer looks at me as a single man.  He no longer sees you as a single women.  When God sees me, he sees you too.  When he sees you, he sees me to. So we are seen as one.  So when my prayers about us come forth, they will be prayers of one. 

 

C.      Different Place – Right now I am sharing with you a few things that are brewing in my spirit.  I have to share.  If you see different, it is because I am coming from a different place.  The word that I am reading is in the John has shown me some things about us.   The crowd verses Jesus and there disbelief and appreciation for each other.  Jesus wasted so much time trying to prove himself to the crowd.  Causing the crowd to miss out on such greatness.  The crowd focused and held on to old school teachings of Moses and Abraham, when they had greatness right there in found of them.  If the crowd would have gotten themselves some education and learn to read and write for themselves, they would be able to read the word and know Christ does exist, that He is real and let go so they could have helped Christ.  Just imagine if Jesus did not have to keep proving himself to them, he could have enjoyed and helped them so much more.  They would have became one.  They could have helped out so many more.  If the crowd would have worked with Christ.  That part of John would have been so different.  So the more I think about it, the more I sit and wonder what if they were able to just sit back and enjoy each other, working with each other.  The GREATNESS that would have came out of that!  For our marriage will learn to be acceptable of the word that you give me and I for you.  That the Christ desires that we work together in one body of Christ.  So in this different place I am moving into could cause some knee jerk reactions.  My prayers are that it is all according to His will and not my own.  So for our marriage I am purging, fasting and in prayer.

 

Baby you are my love each and every day.

 

I Love You

The Best

Mrs. Foxy...

I am truly starting to just enjoy the essence of who you are and who's you are.  The way you are is so great.  So wonderful!!  Some times people talk about reincarnation.  If that is true, in our next life, can I have you all over again.

There...

Mrs. Foxy

There is a time and a place for all things.  Not some but all.  Love is one of those things that takes you to push your limits and boundaries for the things you and don't care for.  Love has the right amount of moisture with some cream to cover all things.

Love is real, I like it just the way it comes.

Frustration

Dear Mrs. Foxy…

 

There are some things that make my frustrated.  I know what the wearing signs when I reach that point.  I start to ache in my body and it does not feel right at all.  I am learning some things about myself that is different than most.  I am learning to appreciate the things I do and don’t do for myself.  I am learning to take better care of myself.  Learning to be loyal to myself.  I am just realized that no one is going to take care of me like I will take care of me.  It feels great to know that someone wants to help, but when they don’t it is ok.  I am responsible for me at the end of the day.  But greatness comes out of it when it is called “help.”

 

Right now I am on a new way.  A new thought process of seeing life and the days that we do and don’t have.    See I since that I am going to need to turn my inside out.  To be honest I don’t know if it is right or wrong at the end of the day.  Through prayer, trial, error and stacking on faith.  We will see what comes of it.

 

I am tired, I am frustrated.  But what comes out of this so far, is I will take responsibility of me and see where it gets me.

Each...

Dear Mrs. Foxy...

You know each day our lives changes.  We start to see life a lot different then more.  Some days you just want to sit back and do what you want to.  Sometimes you just want to be forthright about your thoughts and not really care who ears them or what the world has to say.  Sometimes you just want to ................................. 

Have a great Day Day!!!

I Had Too...

Mrs. Foxy…

 

I had to do it.  See Valentine’s Day is about expressing love to one and other.  I don’t compare how some treat and do there wife or significant other.  I put all my focus in on you.  I do whatever I can to make sure that you are taking care of.  I work hard to make sure that I have you covered the way the word says I am too.  I am so scared of Falling short in the eyes of God.  The last thing I ever want to answer for is, “Why did you not take care of the peace of coal I gave you?  I expect for her to be a diamond when she comes to the gate.”  See in my head I know that I am suppose to play my part and take care of you from the bottom of my heart.   Sometimes it is so far over whelming, but I am working on balancing that out.

 

My Love for you is real and for ever so smooth. 

I pray you have a great day, I love you from the bottom of my heart!!!

Always Love...

Mrs. Foxy…

 

There is always some love to give and some to receive.  Since the word of God says it is better to give than receive.  I am going to keep giving it to you until he says no more.  Since we are on this earth together until death do us part.  And he has more than just a little.  I have a lot more pouring to do, so open up wide and continue to enjoy all that I put in.

 

Love is that thing that makes the day complete.  Without it, there is a lot that will not exist on this earth and guess what since God is Love and he is Real.  I have all the love in the world to share with you.  So since Love is here, that means he is here to.  So since he is here I am going to suck it up from him and keep pouring it on you.

 

Love is biggest bandage to all wounds.  Its power to be able to stick to you and take care of you at a moment’s notice is Gods greatest power.  Without love, nothing else exist. Nothing.

 

So through this love that he has giving to me.  With all the overflow that comes of it.  I shall bring it all to you.  So please open wide and let me do what I do.
