Snazzy Is Her Name

Snazzy is her name
Classy is his game
Glamour is her life
Natty is his style
Glitter she desires
Silver he delights
They fly and dine
And drown in wine

Credit cards frittered
Bank cards squandered
Deep in substantial debts
Drowning impulsive bets

Repossessions
Humiliations
Defalcations
Deprivations

From riches to rags
From roses to ruins
From grace to grass
From glory to gravel

Wisdom of the ancient:
To cut your coat according to your size
‘Ere you consult thy fancy, consult thy purse

Daily Prompt: Natty

Change and Glow

Change is subjective
Change can be good
Change can be bad
Depends on what you want to see;
Change is inevitable,
And change is a constant
It’s always on the move
Like the second hand on my grandfather’s clock;
When we reject good change, we stop growing
When we accept great change, we start learning
When we avoid good change, we miss opportunities
When we embrace great change, we choose the path
To learn from life and gain insights
Define your change, choose your moves
Know your limits, excel to the limits
Add some aesthetics, sprinkle in some glitter
Beautify your life, change and glow
Always change for the better
And be smarter when you change

Daily Prompt: Aesthetic, Glitter

You Primp, You Pamper

You primp, you pamper
You doll up, you brush up,
You glitter in gold
You pose in rose,
Your gait with grace
You spend and smile,

But deep down inside,
You and I know the truth-

…You only love him for his money!
I would have loved him better than you could ever do!

Daily Prompt: Primp, Glitter

Be Thou my Vision

“Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best thought, by day or by night;
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light”

This song is a prayer, a desire for God to be our vision. For God to be all we see. For when we lose sight of God, we see the glitters of sin beckoning our lust-filled hearts, we see the ostentatious gifts of life seducing our minds, we become consumed with all our own plans and desires, we become selfish and self-centred. We may become bitter, unforgiving, proud, stubborn and sometimes foul-mouthed.

Problems become enlarged and solutions miles away. We may become hopeless, in despair and depressed, tearful and sad, blaming everybody and anybody. We may feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders and we focus only on the things that are wrong in our lifes. Some even attempt or do commit suicide.

But when we make God our vision, when we look unto Him who is the Author and Finisher of our faith, earth’s glooms and glitters grow dim. We see who He is and who He made us to be. When we make Him our Vision, He fills us with the desire to be more like Him, we become more loving, more hopeful, content, joyful, peaceful, spirit-filled, and all that God is. His character begins to rub off on us, we discover that we are increasing in His image from day to day.

Our problems may not go away but we discover an inner strength to keep fighting, keep hoping and to keep believing that because He lives we can face of tomorrow. We find a reason to love, to live and to be a blessing to others. Even when reasons are inexplicable, we find that love, joy and peace flows regardless.

May the good Lord be our daily vision indeed, Amen.

“Lord, help us not to lose sight of You, in our waking thoughts or when asleep; and may we become more like You as we behold Your lovely face day by day, Amen.”
