Must Smile Today

Posted: June 30, 2010 in Tenderly

If it were possible to achieve the attributes of BFT – Belief, Faith and Trust then do what you can. Once you have wisdom then, wisdom teaches you the importance of these characteristics. Wisdom had invited us to seek it early and if we do so earnestly, we will find it.  Having found wisdom then these other traits will become almost second nature. It is having them that we will know how much you should extend yourself.

Must Smile Today

Meal time and when she came

Unable to eat much so it was the same

So many dishes all over the place

There before me laid two breadfruits in my face

Soft and pale, ripe to eat

Much too much for one sitting and I got up from my seat

I thought I could in my mind but when I saw

Luscious breadfruits I realized my flaw

Eating is good but too much of a good thing is bad

There is moderation we must strive for so I knew I had

One too many and too many of one

Didn’t know what to do but I bit in and it all begun

A meal of all meals, a spectacular dish

Yummy, scrumptious these breadfruits satisfy my every wish

How Much Should I…

Posted: June 30, 2010 in Tenderly

If it were possible to achieve the attributes of BFT – Belief, Faith and Trust then do what you can. Once you have wisdom then, wisdom teaches you the importance of these characteristics. Wisdom had invited us to seek it early and if we do so earnestly, we will find it.  Having found wisdom then these other traits will become almost second nature. It is having them that we will know how much you should extend yourself.

How Much Should I…

Have belief, faith and trust?

On who do I favor and who disgust

When do I give up or give in

Make amends for those wrought in sin

Use old experiences to measure today’s path

Criticize other opinions and choose when to laugh

Hold to standards when exception begs

Stop others shoving into round holes their square pegs

How often should I hear apologies

Or succumb to those who start with please

Use kindness and forgiveness when people deliberately stray

Let my forbearance excuse those who disobey

Do I just have Belief, Faith and Trust that all will be well

I don’t know whose bound for Heaven but I feel sure whose bound for Hell

There’s No Love

Posted: June 29, 2010 in Tenderly

There is no love and it is strange that so many people speak as though there is. There are many people who make the mistake of referring to it as love, I say pay a little more attention and you will see there is none. Nil!.

There’s No Love

They embrace and greet

Have moments on their feet

Exchanging social graces

Right afterwards their faces

Emotionless and they start

Smooth exertion from the heart

Never ending maneuverability

On top, out front, legs, hips all in unity

Life’s passion and strong sweating backs

Only counteracted with complementing attacks

Victory comes with ecstatic screams at nil

Even though the football game ended 4-0, There’s No Love still

Today Lord I Pray

Posted: June 29, 2010 in Best Wishes

This wonderful day started with a gentle rain and then sunlight to dry the excesses. The birds came out and the day’s promises were clear. I thank the Lord for He has made all things beautiful and this celebrative day is no exception. I pray that my friend enjoys it all. Happy Birthday Bambie

Today Lord I Pray

That your blessings rain abundantly

On this my special friend Bambie

Deeds are rewarded when we do

All things proper unto you

You know she prays and obeys

On that track not broad but narrow instead

Religiously she walks in your light up ahead

Dear Lord, though the road is rough

I know my friend, she is tough

Past adversities may daunt her but she ploughs on  

Running into her challenges and fights until there are gone

And so with all of her loyalty Today Lord I Pray

Your Blessings on her for her Birthday

Don’t Cut Me Off

Posted: June 28, 2010 in Tenderly

I was waiting for a call and it never came. I had to go about my work and when I did, the call came through. Luckily I had told the others that I was expecting it because they called me to the phone. My, these cordless phones, yah would think with all the presence of cellular phone technology that the cordless would be real capable of the 2 miles we were promised 10 years ago

Don’t Cut Me Off

Dog gone it! The phone rang

Out in the yard and I heard bang bang

Now it rings when I am way out here

Then I heard them, Honey are you there

Couldn’t believe it! It was really for me!

Unable to leave the yard cause I was feeding the puppy

They brought the extension and I said hello

My ears caught an accent that was easy to know

Excitement came like a raging flood

Only the voice was great but the reception was no good

For a brief moment I heard “I’m here!”

Five seconds later the line was cut off, five seconds later a tear!

It only takes a kind word at the time it is most needed to quell pain that may have festered. I am grateful that there are many of God’s children who continue to work for him to help many of the mere souls that may sometimes lose their light on the paths to eternity. I thank all who help and today a special late thank you to a new friend.

Belated Patsy

Blessed Savior ever near

Earnestly I offer a prayer

Let your blessings fall on her

A faithful servant whose kindness were

Thrown upon a mere soul like me

Even though I was a stranger, she

Did her best to help and it was more than

People closer, so Lord I know you can

Award her with more blessings for the care she shows

To strangers like me who she hardly knows

Send her these blessings Lord I pray

Your graces shine upon her as I wish her a Belated Birthday!

Happy Birthday Precious Babes

Posted: June 26, 2010 in Best Wishes

Some people mean much more than others even though they have only been actively a part of your life for a few months. I feel bless to have reconnected in such a meaningful way with her and hope that where ever time finds her that she always have God’s blessing and His guiding light to illuminate. Have a happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Precious Babes

Oh brilliant light that shines on me

Bring your glow on her that she

In all her travels far away

At every town where she might stay

Let her live in better health                                                                             

Oh light, may she always be her best self

Precious she is to all, you know

Nothing daunts her where she might go

Jewels may adorn the surface but her heart within

Earnestly shines and is free from sin

Mine is a request dear light that darkness be taken away

At this juncture in her life may she enjoy everyday!

He’s Out Of My Life

Posted: June 25, 2010 in Michael Jackson, Tributes

And there shall be a time to mourn. But what and how long she mourning b?. I think each individual might have their different way and time to grieve over the passing of someone they held dearly. If that person gave 50 years of their life then is 50 days enough. May be not. But it seems better to remember the very productive life they had than to sulk about death.

He’s Out Of My Life

How fast a year has gone by

Even now when I see his videos I cry

Such a lost still so hard to bear

Our lives transformed when MJ was here

Unbelievable music, dance and work with charities

The humblest example of all celebrities

Old and young loved his docile way

Fans all over the world regret this dreaded day

Michael left so unexpectedly

Year now past but it’s still unreal to me

Let me start celebrating what we had

In appreciation of his life, today I mustn’t be sad

For too long I’ve cried like a bereaved wife

Enjoy then his legacy and stop sulking that He’s Out Of My Life

Happy Birthday Liesel

Posted: June 25, 2010 in Best Wishes

Another great soul was born on this day and she has demonstrated charitably too many of us. Today let us show her our love and one great way is to fully respect all that she has done, heed her warning and advice and willingly pass on all knowledge to those others in need. Follow her shining example.

Liesel

Let us live for others and not selfish pride

In the light lets works our deeds and not in the dark hide

Everyday let us show how much we care

Show kindness to all and to all share

Every blessing given to us from above

Liesel has been a shining example, today let show her some love

May this day and all others to follow bring true happiness. I am not with you in body but I am there with you in spirit and I embrace you with love and salute this beautiful life you live. We all have turns that we take in life that made lead us of course, but some of us have taken God’s hand to pull us back on track when ever we might stray. I know that you walk with him and are always safe. I know that you enjoy every step of your way, but I pray for just a little more for you on this special day

Proud Grandmother

Praise you Lord we have lived to see

Rains that spring your gracious beauty

Ordinary land that laid dull and dry

Unveiling new wonders as the rains drop by

Dear Lord we thank you for the birds and the bees

Glorious animals on earth and fishes in the seas

Refrains sung, written by devoted men

And your word to guide us from beginning to end

Nothing Lord disturbs too long you come when we call

Deliver us from temptation and pick us up when we fall

Made this world a better place with family and friends

Once we fellowship with each other our happiness transcends

The darkness about us and each day is new

How beautiful to have your guidance and with you

Enjoying the wishes of all for a Happy Birthday

Resolute knowing she’s a Proud Grandmother today
