Light Has Come!

In His Light, we see light…

Deep in the tunnels of rage
Bound in the chains of hate
Darkness surrounding like a gate
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Drowning in the oceans of sin
Buried in its seabed within
Lust enslaving like a gin
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Crouching in the corners of guilt
Ashamed with the depth of your filth
Hiding in the covers of your quilt
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

Wallowing in wounds of the past
Vowing to avenge with a blast
Pining with emotions of downcast
Hear the voice of the Holy One-
Light has come!

May the Light of the gospel shine into our hearts and draw us nearer to the Lord, Amen.

Feisty In Pink

IMG_2696

Arrayed in a pink, silken, elaborate and magnificent gown, she slowly walked into the ballroom.
Heads turned and eyes gazed in admiration of such radiant natural beauty.
But, beware!… Beware of her feisty temper and words that sting like the jellyfish.

Angels In Disguise

IMG_2694

Soft whispers to God,
“Teach me to read, to write,
To understand the wonders
Of Your creation”,
He answered my prayer-
He sent me an angel in disguise,
He gave me a teacher.

Poet’s Notes:
I have to find patience and wisdom everyday to manage 2 children. So I sincerely applaud those who have to manage 30 children every day, 5 days a week. Teachers really do amazing jobs both in teaching and in role modelling.

What Is Friendship?

What is friendship without trust?
What is friendship without sacrifice?
What is friendship without honesty?
What is friendship without candour?
What is friendship without laughter?
What is friendship without reliability?
What is friendship without fellowship?
What is friendship without confidence?
What is friendship without companionship?
What is friendship without a shoulder to lean on?

Can true friendship exist without these?
I wonder.

R – Research And Risks

Read about what you want to do. Almost everything we want to do requires some level of reading.

You have to determine the extent your own dream or project requires. Research about it, search the internet, the YouTube. Practically everything you want to now is on YouTube.

What’s the project about? Publishing? Writing? Designing? Life coaching? Politics? Whatever it is, there has to be some reading. And as already mentioned, some projects and dreams requires extensive and in depth research while some don’t.

Research and read other people’s reviews, experiences, opinions, suggestions, theses and analysis. Personally, reading reviews about a product has saved me a lot of unnecessary hassles. Invest in reading materials and adequately equip yourself for the journey ahead.
Research and reading is a continuous process. It never ends, you can never say I know it all now. There’s always something new to find out and to learn.

Risks. Having read and researched, be prepared to take risks. Be prepared to sail on uncharted territories. Risk is a necessary course in any venture. Sometimes it pays off, other times you make mistakes and glean vital lessons from the mistakes. Either way, it’s a win-win.

“But failure has to be an option in art and in exploration–because it’s a leap of faith. And no important endeavor that required innovation was done without risk. You have to be willing to take those risks …” James Cameron

Extra Additional Grace

Some folks are easy to deal with,
More like a walk in the park,
Others are much more difficult,
Causing you some irritation of sorts,
You can’t just find a way around it,
Like a sore thorn on your flesh,
They sting, they prick, they kick,
You frown, you fret, you stress,
They drive you to your limits,
You spit out words you do not mean,
Worse part is that sometimes,
They are part of your daily life,

In times like these, we need
Extra additional grace,
Grace to show love unfeigned,
Grace to pray through the pain,
Grace to go the extra mile,
Grace to tolerate with a smile,
Grace to forgive and forget,
Grace to act more like Christ,
Extra additional grace

Bon Appétit!

An old post reblogged…

Dream Desire Achieve

I have one confession to make- I’m an ardent follower of Master Chef The Professionals. Since I discovered the program last year, I’ve been following every episode closely and have enjoyed watching the culinary challenges and experiences these professionals face.

I’ve learnt about different exotic dishes, ingredients, styles and skills in various Michelin starred restaurants. I also enjoy the rich baritone voice of the narrator, he pronounces each ingredient with great pride and perfection; and how I love the sound of “panacotta”. Being an artistic person, what I enjoy most is the plating of the food. If you have an imaginative and creative mind like me, you would agree with me that some presentations are simply put- mind blowing, fantastic and…WOW!!! It’s almost like you don’t want to eat the food; you’d rather hang it on the gallery in your house and just stare at it with sheer bewilderment, utter amazement…

Roger Federer- “I believed…”

IMG_2684

“I guess it’s believe that I can achieve such heights… I believed that I could maybe come back. If you believe, you can go really far in life. I think I did that and I’m happy. I kept on believing and dreaming and here I am today…” said the 8th time Wimbledon winner.

If you believe it, it’s possible, it can’t be done and it can be achieved. You just have to work hard and keep dreaming, keep believing.

Congratulations Roger, savour the moment, it’s truly a well deserved title.

“To him that believes, anything is possible” – Mark 9:23

The Back of the Sofa

Whenever I brush the back of the sofa,
It’s always full of surprises,
Forgotten toys, coins, socks,
Crumpled paper, lego blocks, etc
The longer I put it off,
The more clutter it gathers;
In the dirt and the clutter,
I always find something,
I’ve been searching for a while;

Life, like the back of the sofa,
Is always full of surprises,
We have to keep living, keep believing,
Keep dreaming, keep searching,
Because surprises,
And the unexpected,
Could deliver to our doorsteps,
Something we’ve been searching,
Dreaming and hoping for.

Q – Questions and Questionnaires

 

Question yourself and question what you’re doing.

 

 

 

Take your log, your data, your journals and your diaries like we discussed in M – Make Yourself Accountable and periodically assess your progress or otherwise. Look back, read your notes and your goals, see the pattern of events. The timeline depends on you and what your project is. It could every bi-monthly, tri-monthly or quarterly, whatever works for you.

Having done these, then review, reflect and find out what’s working, what’s not working, what can be improved and what can be discarded. Ask yourself critical questions and try to be as objective as possible.
Also print and distribute questionnaires and feedback forms to families, friends and anyone whose input or insight you deem valuable. Most people use Survey Monkey, it’s free and easily accessible. Collect all the results from questionnaires and assessments, enter them into a spreadsheet or any worksheet that would aid you analyse them, then make changes appropriately.

Not Out of Mind

My dear blogger,
My out of sight is not out mind,
Oh no! Far from it!
You occupy my mind daily,
As I wade through issues,
That keep attempting to bury,
My passions, my innate desire for writing-
Mozilla browser refusing to budge,
Work timelines and deadlines,
Personal issues, pensive minds,
Family and church commitments,
Oh dear dear dear me!
Oh, my dear blogger,
How can I forget the joy, the gladness,
That floods my heart when I write,
Nor that thrill, excitement and suspense,
Wondering what our daily Prompt would be;
I will keep fighting! I will keep writing!
I will keep reading, commenting and liking!
For I have just discovered that,
Being here gives me greater pleasure than my daily food.

Daily Prompt: Bury

Gossips Are Worse Than Thieves

Gossips are worse than thieves
They steal from another man-
Dignity, honour, reputation, credibility,
These are impossible to restore,
Unlike earthly physical possessions.

At the point when a man slips,
He can recover and readjust his balance,
At the point when his tongue slips,
He cannot recover his words,
He cannot readjust the damage caused,
There’s nothing to caper to, revel in or profit from,
When another man’s dignity is stolen and tarnished.

Daily Prompt: Caper
