When All Is Done

When all is done
And there is nothing else to do
When time catches up with you
And all day you sit
To reminisce on the yonder years
When all black or golden has turned gray or white
And all smooth has wrinkled up

How will you be remembered?
What will you leave behind?

Will your legacy be like the dew
Disipating as quickly as it came
Will your gifts to humanity
Be like the sun, always shinning
Reminding us everyday
About your beautiful heart

How will we be remembered?
What will we leave behind?

God has entrusted you
With a gift for us all
Don’t be stingy
Don’t die with yours
– Goodheart

Helplessness

Seeing someone in need
You look deep down
You don’t have what it takes
To render help…
The best you can do is
Pray.
The only thing yiu do is
Pray
Even though you ask
Is praying enough?

Helplessness is a lonely place
Where no one should be

What Hope Is There??

What hope is there for the Church?
What will be its end?

When her leaders are just boys
Inexeperienced, imature
With bogus titles without portfolios;
When her ministers are little lads
Scampering about and desperately
Longing for the crumps of favours
Off men’s tables;
When sychophancy and hypocrisy
Are presented as self-sacrifice;
When little boys point and poke
At the faces of the fathers
Who taught them how to walk;
When men pleasers would nod in silence
In the face of a blatant evil
Rather than speak the truth
And be God pleasers;

What hope is there for the Church?
When men talk and talk and talk
And never know when to stop
But rarely lifts a finger to do;
When the blessings of the cross is preached
But the sufferings therein not taught.

I wonder.

Come Lord Jesus, come quickly

True Colours Never Lie

Ain’t we all but colours
Different shades truly revealing
Some red and feisty
Others blue and mellow
Some white with purest hearts
Others in brown conniving thoughts
Some, pinky sporty and sanguine
Others purple, in total control
Some yellow warm and friendly
Others in dark green envy

Colours, shades and hues
Though masked and hidden
In time, with time,
Will inevitably unravel itself

If Only We All Had Face Stickers

This is message a friend sent to me today. I think it’s worth sharing.

A car ahead was moving like a turtle and not giving me way inspite of my continuous honking! I was on brink of losing my cool when I noticed the small sticker on the car’s rear!

“Physically challenged; Please be patient.”

And that changed everything!!
I immediately went calm and slowed down!!

In fact, I got a little protective of the car and the driver!!!
I reached home a few minutes late, but it was ok!
And then it struck me.

Would I have been patient if there was no sticker?
Why do we need stickers to be patient with people!?

Will we be more patient and kind with others
If people had labels pasted on their foreheads?

Labels like ——

“Lost my job” ,
“Fighting cancer”,
“Going through a bad divorce”,
“Struggling with depression”,
“Suffering emotional abuse”,
“Lost a loved one”,
“Feeling worthless”,
“Broken hearted”
“Financially broken”

….and more like these!!

Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about or probably know little about.

The least we can do is try to be patient.

My Lord, My King, My All

I searched for You
I found who I was
I gave up myself
I found You

I sought Your heart
You showed me mine
I surrendered my heart
You led me to Yours

The closer I come
The more I detest my vanities
The nearer I come
The more I desire Your virtues

Take A Look At Myself

It is so easy
To point fingers
And lay blames
We recount what
Should have been
And what the other needs to do
We feel like champions
And pat ourselves on the back
We lose compassion
Until we find ourselves
In similar situations
Then we realise what
What we should have done or
How we should have acted

I need to take a
Look at myself
Pretend with a little
Bit of role play
Or role swap
How would I want others
To treat me?

A little compassion makes the sun
To shine in someone’s garden.

Grace Wins Every Time

In the Book of Esther, the name God was never mentioned; yet, throughout the book God is evidently at work in the lives of the people and the intricate affairs of the nation.
Even though it appeared as if evil men were gaining the upper hand, God was still in absolute control protecting His people.

We may not completely comprehend everything that is happening around us; nevertheless, we cannot relinquish our trust in God’s salvation. We need to maintain our integrity and faith in God by doing what we believe is right and just.

Esther who risked her life to appear before the King, became a great heroine to her people; Mordecai who was effectively condemned to death, became the second highest ranking officer all over Xerxes’ empire.

No matter how like a dead end our conditions may seem to be, no matter how evil, sickness or sin may seem to reign and gain ground, even when we just want to give up, we cannot afford to give in to despair for God is still very much in control. His grace is always available for His people. When the timing is right, we would see that we already have the victory by His grace.

Be assured, grace wins every time.

I Love Mondays

Thank God it’s Monday
Really?
Yes
I love Mondays
Why?
Don’t you know the meaning of Mondays?
No I don’t
Hmmm…

Mondays mean
– School runs
– Packed lunches
– Rush hour
– Going to work
– Work colleagues
– Driving to work
– Appointments
– Deadlines

Exactly my point. That is why I don’t like Mondays.
No, take a closer look-

I’m grateful I have children.
I’m grateful I have a family
I’m grateful my children are in school.
I’m grateful I’m there for them to do their school runs, to help them with their homework.

I’m grateful they have food to eat.
I’m grateful I can afford healthy food for them.

I’m grateful I live in a community, I’m not alone or isolated.
I’m grateful for this community of care workers, utility workers, bankers, transport workers, etc all of us making effort to be at our work posts.

I’m grateful I have a job.
I’m grateful I earn a salary- it means I have money for bills, business and pleasures.

I’m grateful I have people to work and laugh with at work.
I’m grateful there’s a workforce complementing my little inputs.
I’m grateful they also have jobs.

I’m grateful I have a car, I drive to work
I’m grateful I walk to work. A good opportunity for exercise.
I’m grateful I fly to work. Very comfy in a jiffy.

I’m grateful for deadlines and appointments. My input is appreciated. I am important to someone.

I’m grateful I’m alive to do all these.

I’m grateful for Mondays
I love Mondays

Love. Love. Love.

love

love has always been
an action word

actions always speak volumes
more than words

actions are always the mirrors
into your soul

narcissism has no friends

agape’s friends are countless

love will always be
an action word

love

I Found Him Too

 

B6334588-237D-4F92-B343-0B4F73E8CA52

Now I belong to Jesus
Jesus belongs to me
Not for the years of time alone
But for eternity”
(Hymn by Norman J. Clayton)

I found Him too
At banks of the River
Where springs of Hope
Bubbled in delight

I found Him too
In the Dawn of the day
When I knelt in contrite
Near my bedside lamp

I found Him too
With unspeakable joy
Where cords of Love
Bound my heart to His

I found my Saviour
That is,
After He found me first

Write A Cheque For Liberty

What is the cost of freedom?
A soldier’s life?
What is the cost of liberty?
A young man’s death?

Politicians bickering
Smoking cigars,
In luxurious suites
Soldiers fighting
Hungry and homesick
In muddy trenches

Put a price of freedom
What is the number?
Write a cheque for liberty
How much is it?

Bring all the monies in the world
Gather all the gold and the diamonds
Put them in a bank-
How many lives can it buy?

#100 years Remembrance Day

From The Ashes

From the ashes of despair
Let our song rise
From the dusts and tears
Bounce back into the Light
Begone! Unbelief
Our Saviour! He lives

Chant your songs, raise that voice
Breathe again, make it your choice
The past ain’t got power over you
Follow the Light, don’t stay down
From the ashes, rises a new you
For the dust can’t keep you down

Marmalade

 

1034B012-1D7D-4602-94CC-B82EE1892DC4

Watching Marmalade my little pooch as she aimlessly and nonchalantly chewed her dog biscuits while her big black eyes stared into my steak, I didn’t need any 6th sense to tell me what I needed to do. I stood up and went to the kitchen.

At the sound of the kitchen door, Marmalade immediately abandoned the biscuits and came to me in the kitchen, wagging her tail excitedly and looking at me with so much hope and anticipation. I grinned.

Picked a steak from the saucepan, diced and dished them into her plate and set it down near the biscuits in the living room. She quickly pounced on it and devoured the delicacies before you could say Robinson Crusoe, totally ignoring her biscuits.

When she finished, she came and settled cosily near my feet, content and full. I patted her furry little head, resumed my meal while I watched my favourite whodunnit series- Law and Order.
