    As we roam, earth-bound
    Seeking and searching
    A mate heaven-found
    First, we must be shaped and molded
    Before sinking into welcoming arms, unfolded

    For, perhaps, we are not yet "prepared" for our "opportunity"
    To receive God's blessing of a life-long, covenanted unity
    But as we pray for God to send us that which we yearn
    Perhaps, we still have growing to do and lessons to learn

    So, until we are "prepared" for His "opportunity"
    We are not, meanwhile, granted personal immunity
    From all within us that must be extracted and subtracted
    So that we, then, are more glorious and more deeply attracted
    To and by the he or she
    That be
    Our mates sent.....divinely

    Respectively!

    So, perhaps instead of praying for an angel, heaven-sent
    We should pray that God "prepare" us to receive its descent
    And that He make in US an "angel," matched in perfect accent....

    Praying that God prepares us for our angel, so that we will be ready, willing, and able when he/she comes into our lives... This was so well said, and oh so true cherryblossom.

    Thank you both!

    We all must take an honest look at the man/woman in the mirror.

    being prepared for the thing to come...

    ...is better than getting the thing you yearn...then losing it because you were ill-prepared. DO WHATCHA DO.

    as the river floweth.
