BEAUTY IMPOSES: POEM BY JOHN SHAW NEILSON

BEAUTY IMPOSES
(Forwarded by Cynthia Abegail)

Beauty imposes reverence in the Spring,
Grave as the urge within the honeybuds,
It wounds us as we sing.
Beauty is joy that stays not overlong
Clad in the magic of sincerities,
It rides up in a song.
Beauty impose chastenings on the heart,
Grave as the birds in last solemnities,
Assembling to depart.

John Shaw Neilson  (A brilliant poet!)

THE LORD BLESS AND KEEP YOU (FB)


                               THIS PRAYER IS AN EFFECTIVE BLESSING;

                     IT EMANATES FROM THE WORD OF GOD!
                    THANKS TO FB.  NEW WORLD
                    

Ps 145:1 “I will extol you , my God and King”

 Extol is such a lofty word and it’s suiting to attest to God   Almighty.  When one extols God, it comes from the deepest recesses of one’s heart!  It’s encompassing, affects all emotions and mind.  There is no space for evil.The heart is predispose to praise the centre of his dreams and aspirations.  

One will read about the stories of the Saints.  Some could even go to ecstasy for their longing—God.  It maybe too much for an ordinary layman to understand!  One can extol God in his own way, not necessarily levitating into the air but just raising his eyes and soul to the Beloved, with no hypocrisy but only of utter sincerity and honesty.  Praise the Lord!

Joy from the Lord

ONLY GOD GIVES SUCCESS: REFLECTION FORWARDED BY MARIA CASSIA








ONLY GOD GIVES SUCCESS

There are times we do heaps of planning and organisation.
That's necessary and vital but upon some reflection, did
we do this prior to consultation with our Lord?

Others may say, "As long as we are careful in our planning and
management, all will be fine!" Definitely not... Why?

God gives only success and failures. If anything happens, good or
bad, rest assured that God is the One that gave consent to everything.
How? God is the Creator of the Universe and everything in it. Hence,
in God's unparalleled Wisdom, God knows everything that happens, for
everything is His Dominion.

At times, I did things on my own. To my dismay, it never really succeed!
It's just that sometimes that the human spirit surface and we all know
that it is weak.

Let us abide by the Holy Spirit, the breath of God who never fails. The Holy
Spirit, the Spirit of God is the Paraclete, the Helper at all times. Most of the time,
ask for the intercession of Mother Mary, St Joseph, St Michael the Archangel,
all of the angels and saints. One may ask, "Why do we need to?" God does not
refuse the plea of the celestial court as long as it is God's will and it is good for us.

Remember, God is the source of all success! This is the reason why kings and rulers
are deposed when they do not reflect the justice and love of God anymore. "To whom
shall we go to? You have the words of eternal life." These are the words of St Peter,
the Rock of which the Church is built.

God is the source of everything, the source of success!

I will thank and praise the Lord


“They speak of the splendour of your majestic glory” Ps 145: 5a

 Majesty!  God symbolises this word.  We can only stand in awe of God in any circumstance in life.  In plenty and in want, it’s just fitting to praise Him in all of His glory.  Why?  It is because poverty is not forever.  One maybe poor at some point but abundant at a certain stage of life.  But God is eternal!  We cannot forget the truth that He created and nurtured us throughout our lives.  Those who do not know Him yet will later be amazed!

**THE FRUITES**
POEM
BY
ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP

DELICIOUS FRUITES
SITTING IN THE BOWL
ALL DIFFERENT KINDS
STRAWBERRIES, BLUEBERRIES
EVEN PEACHES LOOK SO DELICIOUS

ALL RIPE
I TAKE ONE BY ONE
AND NOW THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF THEM
BUT A BOWL !!



(Arianna Rose Philip, the youngest brilliant poet
in New World exudes a striking, natural ambience in
her latest poem, The Fruites.
It is interesting to note that Arianna chose logical themes of
nature and everyday encounters of life. This is superb because we can connect with them perfectly.
Arianna could be envisioned to be a great poetess in her own time; she is truly a promising poet, one to reach heights in the field of literature. Outstanding young poetess! Arianna, we love your poems!)
Cynthia Abegail Bernardo


 I liked the innocence and simplicity of the contents of young Ariann's poem Fruities and other poems which you had forwarded. It seems the frame of her mind is brimming with ideas on subjects which she observes around her. It is also evident that she minutely observe things. A bowel full of fruits and an empty bowel without them ! A common thing of everyday life has been depicted meaningfully and beautifully, I send my best wishes and congratulations to Arianna.

GOD SETS US FREE: REFLECTION BY PRAYER AID


In the desert the whole community grumbled against Moses and Aaron. The Israelites said to them, "If only we had died by the Lord's hand in Egypt! There we sat around pots of meat and ate all the food we wanted, but you have brought us out into this desert to starve this entire assembly to death." Exodus 16:2-3


Grumbling and criticizing happens “automatically”even before we are aware of what we are saying the criticism is out! Grumbling and moaning comes from an unhappy heart. An unhappy heart is a heart away from God. The Israelites wanted to remain slaves to the Egyptians; they did not want their freedom! Our hearts are slaves to our negative attitudes rather than praise God for what good He is doing in our lives. Let us look into our hearts today, and decide to accept the freedom God is offering us from all negative incidents, rather than be slaves to our sufferings.
(THANKS TO JANE PIMENTA FOR THIS TRUTH ABOUT THE NATURE OF FREEDOM GOD IS OFFERING US.  EXCELLENT!)  NEW WORLD


CHEERS FROM TAL BONHAM:CYNTHIA ABEGAIL'S COLUMN

Jokes CornerA missionary heard about a native who had five wives.
"You are violating a law of God," said the good missionary.
"So you must tell four of those women they can no longer
live here or consider you their husband."
The native thought a few moments, then said,
"Me wait here. You tell 'em."
******************************
A minister answered his telephone to hear a woman's voice request, "Send six cases of vodka, please."The pastor recognised the voice as that of one of his parishioners. Gently he replied, "I am your minister."He expected an apology by her for dialing the wrong number.Instead she retorted, "What are you doing at the liquor store?"

*****************************************
The evangelist for a country church high up in the mountains was out visiting prospective members one day. He had spotted a house up in a mountain range that required a least a two mile walk.He discovered a man rocking back and forth on the porch."Howdy, friend, my name is Evangelist Jones, What's yours?'"Calloway's the name. What can I do for you?"The minister said, "I would like to ask a few questions.""Shoot! replied the mountaineer."
"Mr. Calloway, have you made peace with God?""Peace with God?" questioned Calloway, Me and God ain't never had no argument!""Mr. Calloway, are you a Christian?""I just told you, my name is Calloway, the Christians live four mountains up the road."Mr. Calloway, I am having a hard time getting through to you. Are you lost?"No I ain't lost. I've been living here all parts of my life!'"Well, Mr Calloway, what I really wanted to know is, are you ready for judgment day?"Judgement Day? When's its going to be?" The young minister replied, "Well, Mr Calloway, it could be today or it could be tomorrow.""Well, land sakes alive, parson, don't tell my wife.She'll want to go both days!"
