LOVE IS IN THE AIR
Sista To Sista
Pumpkins @ hotmail.com
Usually, it is my option to use
rGforGnces in my writing. HowGvor, duG
to this month’s spocial occasion, I
choosG to write from tho hoart. I wish to
discuss thG GSSGncG of Iovg.
Lovg is a fGGling shown through
Gmotions. Lovg is an important factor for
all intimatG relationships. It is important
in other relationships like family or
Platonic rGlationships as well.
Our heart should be tho most
important aspoct in a loving rGlationshlp.
SomGtimGS love is confused with lust,
jealousy, and hurt basGd on convGrsation
with othGrs. ThGSG fGGlings distort our
thinking and causG thG risk of losing thG
lovG that WG alrGady havG. In this casG,
pGopiG usG lovG to justify nGgativG
bGhavior they display towards their loved
one. Sometimes, it is useful or resource
ful to use our heart in lieu our mind, or
vice versa. Both, our mind and our
heart, play a big part in loving and
Intimate relationships. I cannot dictate
what real love is or what perfect love is,
because there may be neither. It is
possible though to suggest or recom
mend issues or ideals that can promote
a healthy relationship. Of course, it takes
two! Particularly, this article refers to
ladies, so I would like to share some
“food for thought” with you all. First, it has
got to start with self. Before we can love
someone we must first learn to love
ourselves. It is hard, because we all
have flaws. However, it can be done.
The Valentine spirit is in the air, but
some ladies did not have a love to share
the special day with. Some people tend
to think that because a person is without
a Valentine that they may not have
enjoyed the special day as much. This is
not necessarily true. A single lady can
have as much of a nice day as any one
else, which I am sure all of us know
already. Valentine’s Day is not just a day
to show love to your significant other(s);
it is also a day to show love to yourself.
On the top of that list is God (for He
loved us first). Ladies, bGing singiG is a
biGssing in disguisG. It should givG us a
chancG to grow spiritually in thG Lord. I
am not preaching, but I am speaking
about what He would have ladies to
know. Some ladies may not be of the
Christian Faith, yet it is still important to
grow faithfully to Him and in Him. T.D.
JakGS states in his astounding book,
“Woman, Thou Art Loosed!” that “...be
fore you ask God for another man, take
care of Him. If you are not ministering to
His needs, and yet you are always
before Him, asking Him to give you one
of His princes to minister to, your prayers
are not being heard because you are not
being faithful to Him.” He goes on to say
that as women grow faithfully in our
singleness, thon wg will bG better pre
pared to be faithful with a husband.
Jakes is simply saying if we treat God
with love and respect in lieu of ignoring
Him, then He will send us a man that can
fulfill our nGGds; thG “good man” that all
women pray for God to send to them.
Ladies, I am not out casting other fe
males who are not single or in some type
of relationship. You, too, can heed this
advice. There may be more blessings for
you and yours if God is in the picture.
Also, being single is a time for us to
grow at any rate. We, as a female
gender, can get in touch with ourselves.
It can symbolize a time for us to recog
nize and work on our flaws. Find what is
important to you and stick to it. Work on
improving yourself and characteristics
that you do not favor. Enjoy the single
life and prosper from it.
So Good To Me
August 3, 2000
Why are you so good to me?
Why did it take me this long to rGalizG
And finally sgg?
That I am somebody
That is special to another
And that we belong to each other.
I have finally come along
To the atmosphere I feel I belong.
Making the man I love remember
How much I care and that my love
Will never hinder.
Us from becoming one.
Becoming a pair, adding up to make
Knowing that an evGrlasting grace
Will shine deeply within and upon
Because I will forever make happiness
Because he is so good to me.

To all of my brothers, a special
holiday is approaching fast: Valentine’s
Day. This is a special day when every
one gives or surprises his or her sweet
heart with candy, flowers, or other
But, why should we give only our
sweethearts a gift? We should celebrate
friendships. Friendships rarely seem to
be appreciated. Friendships are equally
important than a relationship.
True friendships are based on
honesty, trust, and love. In a friendship,
you will always have a friend to talk to
when the relationship is going bad.
WhGn I say “frlGndship”, I am not
rGfGrring only to a “maiG and fomalG”
friendship, but to the “male and male”
and “female and female” friendships. We
should remember the good times that
we have spent with our fhends as wgII
as our swGGthGarts.
On ValGntinG’s Day, if you havG a
swGGtheart, do not forget about your
friends. If you do not have a sweetheart,
still celebrate your friendships.
A Planet Called Love II
continuation of part I verse I!
I’m in a planet called love
Where the inner most feelings are
I deliver my love
Your heart is the address
P.O. box Passion Street
Gone head enjoy
My love is like a bag of sweets
I’m in a planet called love
I can smell the soul fragrant in the air
My cup runnth over with love
I have more than Gnough to sparG
Just likG a buffGt
All you can Gat
Stand still my Iovg
As I GmbracG somGthing that is so
How graceful the birds fly
Look at the openness of their wings
As I watch them grace the sky
I find a courage to dream
I’m in a planet called love
Can you understand what the birds
My taste buds are activated
Eager to taste every flavor love brings
I’m in a planet called Iovg
WhGrG it rain lemonade drops
A place of romanticness
Where hearts inner lock
A place of strawberry rivers
And chocolatG ocGans
A place of no limitations
Used to be lock doors are now open
But...how do you get there?
There’s only one kind of transporta
How do you get there?
How do you reach that destination?
You can’t get there with a car
Not even a truck
May be a bike
Sike, don’t test your luck
You can’t get there with a helicopter
Not even an airplane
Maybe you can walk
Nah, save the pain
Try a motorcycle
Or try a boat
Sike, drop them two
That was only a joke
Now, I can read your mind
You don’t know what to drive, so
where do you start
Listen, I’m going to tell you how to get
You get there with your heart
