I searched for you and me

She dared herself to live with courage and found courage in living!

I searched for you and me

I looked high and low, in front and behind every tree

I glanced off the cliffs below

I searched long and hard, did you know

In the clouds and in the lakes

I searched rivers and mountains with no breaks

I called for you and no one replied

I cried for you inside

I drove miles and miles looking for a glimpse to pull aside

I longed for you and knew you longed for me

To find you was beyond my reach

I was looking for you 

Missing every queue

I looked for the depth of what I should be

Who someone else wanted to see

I lost sight of my own dreams

I thought I was lost where I once was found

Then one day courage stood its ground

Vulnerability spoke with a fierce sound

Wherever you go, there you will be

I’m you and me

~Kerri Elizabeth

When we experience life, life is also experiencing us, I believe. When we go farther and faster and search for ourselves instead of the experiences that creates our selves ,we miss the queues that it is ourselves we are escaping.

When we run from ourselves, we run from our faith, our beliefs, our dreams and our core foundation. When we deny our own existence is not enough because of someone else’s opinion or judgement, then we deny our ability to grow, to serve, to lead, to inspire, to be driven, to reach, to grasp courage with all your might and LIVE beyond limitations set by ourselves or others.

We become stuck within another or others lives and deny our own growth waiting for another growth. The best gift you can give yourself and another is the freedom to be loved at the exact place you are so they have room to move forward. This is courageous!

LIVE WITH COURAGE!

I SEE YOU

It is in our hearts we truly see!

~Kerri Elizabeth~

In the heart of a man there will be honor
Loyalty
Love
Communication
Playfulness
Acceptance
Authenticity
Trust

and
Forgiveness and a genuine openness to grow WITH you
We will mess up, all of us

Life is a abstract painting of chaos swirled with order

We will come to spaces and places we meet our own self worth
Our own defaults
Our own self reflections we will face
One is not above or below the other
Behind or in front of
The walk is side by side
Gesture and posture can lift or crush a spirit
When a man honors a woman his spirit has posture that reflects his own inner love

You will know a man from his fruit

The fruit of the Spirit , love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Reflect unto such a man gratitude with the fruits of your own spirit.

It is always a good reminder to reach into the fruits of the spirit. We all fail this one, we react without a thought, we defend without reason, we deny another’s feeling because they don’t fit our own.

It is when we choose to grow together, when defense is not a gesture of decision but a kind response of understanding.

In all relationships, your children, friends, spouse or even a boss, it is within the fruits of the spirit we reflect love.
