As I was thinking about some things I’ve recently experienced and observed, I was compelled to write the following little poem.
Reflections from A Maiden’s Heart
It’s true my heart is fixed on Christ,
but as on earth I dwell
I cannot help but look around
for one who’d suit me well.
A man of God who loves His Word
and seeks Him every day
is what I watch for most of all
in men that pass my way.
A purpose and a calling
that’s worth a lifetime spent
would beckon me to leave what’s mine
and go wherever he’s sent.
Though I confess my heart may leap
at charming words and attention,
true honor is reserved for those
whose goal is my protection.
While I may never notice
all the little things they do,
the heart of a true gentleman
is always shining through.
Every man bears differently
the image of God in his life,
but true and pure his way must be
if he wants a godly wife.
