Humanity sheltering a child, Memorial to Edith...

Humanity sheltering a child, Memorial to Edith Cavell, St Martin’s Place London

I have come to realise that mankind’s distrust of each other, hinders and prevents us from becoming all that we were meant to be. We erect walls that prevent us from being more open with each other. What if we learnt to be less judgmental? Many folks believe people are out to get them or take what they have. I do realise we are sometimes justified, in feeling this way. Thanks to the bad and reprehensible actions of some thoughtless humans in the forms of break-ins, other forms of violence, malicious gossips and the like. These people are usually under the influence of some other power. We can forgive you know, it takes time for the hurt and pain to go away, its a process, but it can be done.We can’t do this work by ourselves. My prayer is that we become softer and gentler on each other. Everyone is out to get someone these days. I see it daily. Do you realise my friends that the earth has untapped resources? Some miracles are waiting to be discovered. For you to receive a miracle, you have to recognise it first. We are always waiting on God, some things we must do as humanity. Are we ready to put away our selfish mentality, gimme this, gimme that, me first. The church is not exempt from these practises, some of my brethren have hurt me too. There is work to be done, roll up your shirt sleeves and let elbow grease do the talking. If you think you’re in trouble, by this I mean this generation,just think about the youths of tomorrow. Love and blessings….XOXO

Love ? I love love love you.

Open Flower

Open Flower (Photo credit: Irwin-Scott)

They cannot shell His temple
Nor dynamite His throne;
They cannot bomb His city,
Nor rob Him of His own.
They cannot take Him captive,
Nor strike Him deaf and blind.
Nor starve Him to surrender,
Nor make Him change His mind.
They cannot cause Him panic,
Nor cut off His supplies,
They cannot take His kingdom,
Nor hurt Him with their lies.
Though all the world be shattered
His truth remains the same,
His righteous laws still potent
And “Father” still His name.
Though we face war and struggle,
And feel their goad and rod,
We know above confusion
There always will be God.

-A Murray

Three Egrets in Flight

John Donne, one of the most famous Metaphysical Poets.

COME live with me, and be my love,
And we will some new pleasures prove
Of golden sands, and crystal brooks,
With silken lines and silver hooks.

There will the river whisp’ring run
Warm’d by thy eyes, more than the sun ;
And there th’ enamour’d fish will stay,
Begging themselves they may betray.

When thou wilt swim in that live bath,
Each fish, which every channel hath,
Will amorously to thee swim,
Gladder to catch thee, than thou him.

If thou, to be so seen, be’st loth,
By sun or moon, thou dark’nest both,
And if myself have leave to see,
I need not their light, having thee.

Let others freeze with angling reeds,
And cut their legs with shells and weeds,
Or treacherously poor fish beset,
With strangling snare, or windowy net.

Let coarse bold hands from slimy nest
The bedded fish in banks out-wrest ;
Or curious traitors, sleeve-silk flies,
Bewitch poor fishes’ wand’ring eyes.

For thee, thou need’st no such deceit,
For thou thyself art thine own bait :
That fish, that is not catch’d thereby,
Alas ! is wiser far than I.

 

By John Donne

Nature

English: Portrait of William Wordsworth by Wil...

English: Portrait of William Wordsworth

“Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher” by William Wordsworth.

Nature’s heart is beautiful, see how she unfolds at the gentle bidding  of the sun.

She is compassionate too, and even full of fun.

She calls to you today to be  in agreement

For she waits patiently still, because you’re needed in the final act of denouement.

By Joszann St.John

Hi there,

Hope everyone is doing great.The weather is doing its job,It’s snowing outside and I’m happy and grateful to be warm inside.I’m not angry with mother nature at all, the snow is needed.

Snow Cat

Listening to one of my favorite artists aww…such bliss! So I’ve prayed and prayed some more, done lots of work on myself to get to this point in my life.Truthfully there was a time when I didn’t think I would make it.The last years have been extremely tough on me and my kids. I’ve handled so many insults as I developed and fought for this career.Everyone has their own journey but my message to young women is to establish yourself, get your dreams and ambitions underway first before you embark on mother hood and marriage. If you don’t know who you are? You have no reason being in a committed relationship.I tried compromising,I tried many things but that never worked for my marriage.I had to start all over rafter everything I had worked for imploded, not fun but by the grace of God he sustained me.

I was in a store some weeks ago and Beyoncé’s music was  blasting through the speakers.I tell you this in all seriousness,I heard this one line she was singing about being here and making an impression.It spoke to my heart in such a way that I knew I was meant to hear it.You are here too, no reason to play small.Seize the moment there will be no none else like you ever again, go for it.I speak for myself too.I came from a small village in the Caribbean, some things conspired to bring me thus so far.Namely tenacity, drive, obedience,family and timely help from certain individuals.The truth of the matter is that without God’s intervention none of this  would be possible.We can only do so much on our own.I give God the glory everyday for what he’s doing in my life!

Love Love Love

When I was younger I looked for love , what I found was not long lasting.I embarked on a campaign these past years to love myself .I believe love will find me this time,I don’t need to chase after it.I believe when we are ready good things will begin to happen.I’m not saying to be passive and wait, there is work to do always but when you’re ready what ever you’ve been earnestly working towards will find you. I honestly believe that,I’m not trying to be anyone else I have a platform and I’m just going to flow. The world is crying out for real men and women to stand up and be brave.There are too many empty hurting souls littering the landscape of existence.Can’t you tell? I’m not a Wounded Bird No More! 

So be you always,it will bring so much rewards into your life!
