#WQWWC – Memories

Standard

Memories…are moments just gone by

Becoming seconds and minutes as times flies!

Each, bearing fluttering hearts, sometimes tears…

All a sure sign to say I care, cared or someone still cares

Our wishes might be some memories banquished

Or relive the times when true love flourished

Whatever it be, all that matters is

Space became home and lace with girls

Grass formed paths that boys’ feet blazed

Curtains fell, and stained glass glazed

Sweet, bitter, desire, despise…

Don’t seek some memories twice!

A good word

Standard

A good word a day, keeps confusion away! Whether scriptures, general info, or just gist, I love it when I hear a good word that sets things in order or pushes me to desire, seek and want more.
Listened to a few messages today, I got these.

If they ain’t saying anything good to you, Scroll, Select and Delete…that’s how you handle negative people.

David threw one stone and knocked Goliath out! You don’t have no stone…David had a stone, but the Church has the ROCK! On Christ the solid Rock, I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. We throw stones, but stand on a Rock. In the Old Testament, David was fighting for victory, but we already have the victory.

  • Refuse to listen to negative people.
  • Recall past victories.
  • Be comfortable in your skin.

– Dr. Jasmin Sculark (Giants Do Fall)

 If God said, you are here because of me, then you can only live for the One that put you together for this life…I took time out to especially put you together for what it is I want you to do…then I will dictate what you do…and if you don’t do what I want you to do, than I didn’t put you together, because whatever I put together, does what I want it to do! That’s why you are losing some friends cause they don’t fit into God’s plans.

Formed for His purpose, not yours! God has to get the notion of your purpose out of you to get His into you! Ask Moses…

God saves Moses from Pharaoh, but He put Moses in Pharaoh’s house (all of the decadence of Egypt now becomes a part of Moses’ life, before Moses becomes aware of God’s purpose). Moses spend 40 years in Pharaoh’s house, God takes 40 years in the desert to get the 40 years of Pharaoh out of Moses and then he puts in 40 years to get Israel from Egypt. God was working in your past to make your Presence more powerful!

Anything God purposes is challenged by the enemy! The gift of God is shrouded in Mystery. The enemy can’t attack God but you. Once you get the gift it opens the door for attacks on your character. If the enemy can destroy you, you won’t use the gift.

– Bishop Noel Jones (The Fire Won’t Go Out!)

A Time to Grow!

Standard

Ronovan does it again and it’s growing time!

Time…

A wonder how time

Seems to stand still and fly too

When new sprouts show up

Personal growth

Letting go

Maturity says

Have, Hold, Love, Free, Let it go

Space allows for spread

#WQWWC – Beauty

Standard

Last week, Colleen put up a challenge tagged Beauty and like you know, she brings out the fresh lyrics in me.

Whether in the eye of the Beholder

Or vested in the thing itself, I see Beauty

Sometimes revealed and loud, undeniable

Hidden, calm and not proud, not definable

It’s in the morning unfolding between dusk and dawn

Radiating from the eyes, dancing to the lips in smiles

A giggle and it spreads its arms in affection, that’s Beauty!

It’s the stolen kiss between spouses in a crowd

Lost in a world with no walls, stares or frowns

Beauty in the dark, as in the Light

Glowing, refusing to be bound by limitations

Allowing the crack add spice to smoothness

I could go on and on, but no need to…

When you have seeing eyes and believing hearts…

There will always be Beauty!


Golden cracks: the Japanese art of kintsugi values breakage and imperfections.Gerda

“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”  Leonard Cohen, Selected Poems, 1956-1968

‘Pleasantly’ Straight-forward!

Standard

“Mum!!!” King-Earl called out to me as he opened the refrigerator, “I want your Yoghurt in the fridge.”

“Nope!”

“Why?! It’s good to share!” King-Earl insisted

“Nope, I’m not sharing.” I continued with what I was cooking.

“If you don’t share, you are not a Child, no, Adult of God.” (With a look that said “this will make you do it”)

“But I don’t want to share!” I replied, getting frustrated with this conversation.

“Then you are an Adult of something that God defeated” he said disappointingly and walked out of the kitchen.

That alone, stopped me from encouraging any thought to eat that Yoghurt. And yes, King-Earl and sister got to enjoy it at the end of the day.
