FLOWERS O' DELIGHT#POEM #BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL







FLOWERS O' DELIGHT


It was almost sunrise as dawn recedes,

The sonata of the birds billows amidst

My garden that I tended of rosy roses

Remembered my beloved, then muses!

Lilies abound gives me utter delight,

Pinkish, orangy... peaches and cream---

Comforts my willowing heart of might

As I pen words from the sense of light!

The soil is damp from the dew of night,

Assures moisture that gives life at sight

And care that I give to the flowers today

Is the care that I give for those I loved!

Immense in nature, pure and ethereal,

Its colors are crimson, beige, and some

Days its green, but never never black--

Since my love never faints, never dulls!

How Awesome our God is! Reflection by Maria Cassia

As I reflect today on my journey with the Holy Bible, I can only say “How Awesome my God is.”  From Genesis to Exodus till all the books of the prophets flowing into the saga of the New Testament, I can truly only say, “How majestic my God is.”


In this world where the standpoint is material success, the sense of awe and reverence has been minimised.  When one shows too much religiosity and veneration for things related to God, it has been branded sometimes as exaggerated.  



There is no exaggeration in the worship of God.  It is our vocation to praise Him with all of our might.   God Almighty is awesome! If I could be branded as a fool for loving God so much such that my acknowledgment of his utter greatness make me look a fool to others, so be it.  Nevertheless, it will not diminish my praise for His glory as long as I live.



I am empowered by His love, by His mercy, by His perfection!  I know it comes only from Him.  Nothing can separate us from Thee.  “As for me and my family, we will serve you, O’Lord, God Almighty!”


Maria Cassia

THE POWER OF GOD'S NAME (PSALM 8): REFLECTION BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


Yahweh, our Lord,
how majestic is your name throughout the world!
Whoever keeps singing of your majesty higher than the heavens
even though from mouth of children, or of babes in arms,
you make him a fortress, firm against your foes
to subdue the enemy and the rebel.
I look up at your heavens, shaped by your fingers,
at the moon and the stars you set firm---
what are human beings that you spare a thought for them,
or a child of Adam that you care for him?

                                                                       Ps 8: 1-4



*  The name of God spells majesty and glory.  It is just inherent
in God's Name.  Therefore, whenever the praise and worship of
God is happening, the diffusing of God's mighty transcendence
occurs.  Whenever the singing of praises resound throughout
the earth, God's glory sparkles like a juniper and coral, luminous
and pure!

A soul that is in love with God becomes a fortress against God's
enemies.  Why?  It is because that soul becomes engulfed in the
furnace of God's love.  When a soul becomes one with God, that
soul breathes the will of God, the likes of God.  Hence, this
soul is serious in battle against God's adversary.  The soul becomes
a forerunner of St John the Baptist, the one who prepared the
Way of the Lord.

The psalmist also noted that God cares for man and he wonders why.
"What are human beings that you spare a thought for them?"
God walked with man throughout history.  With its ups and downs,
God gently invites his people to come back to Him from the lore of
idolatry.  Idolatry is the camouflage of the enemy!  When the animals
camouflage just like a snake in a desert, it will go unnoticed.  This is
the same as idolatry.  Idolatry is masked as something pleasing but
it will lead finally to ruin---  idolatry to money, fame, vanity of the
world, vices as gambling and prostitution, the glamour and sparkle of
material world.  This could also be idolatry to paranormal activity,
psychic experiences, superstition, horoscopes and anything that harms
life as abortion, euthanasia, etc.  Be vigilant!  Come back, repent
from all evil in order to live for eternity.

THE INCOMPREHENSIBLE AND UNFATHOMABLE GOD FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

THE INCOMPREHENSIBLE AND UNFATHOMABLE GOD

The LORD in his great majesty is beyond understanding.  Scholars had written about many
things about the attributes of God, omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence.  No matter how lofty the words used, it is still not enough to describe our awesome God.

Remember the experience of Moses in the burning bush when he asked about the name of God.
The Almighty replied, "I AM WHO I AM."  It is a fascinating encounter when the prophet only saw the back of God.  No one who sees God the Father will live.

Then, one of the greatest kings wanted to build a temple for the Lord.  The Lord replied how can one contain God who is beyond understanding.  Yes, the Lord owns everything!  How can we build something for The One who is the owner of the whole universe and beyond?

Yet it is interesting to note that God in His greatness and glory send His Son Jesus to save man
from all their iniquities.  Now in the person of the Son, the gap was bridged between God and man.  Jesus is the "I AM the Living Bread that comes down from heaven (Gospel of John).  Jesus is the "I AM the Living Water." 

All are puzzled!  There is no need to be confounded for the Lord Jesus is The Way, The Truth and the Life.  When the Lord speaks, listen to His Voice:  Harden not your Hearts.

Christ Liberated Us: Reflection by Jane Pimenta of Prayer Aid

Christ has liberated us to be free. Stand firm then and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery.  Gal 5:1
One of the things that puts the yoke of slavery on us is our negativity.  Let us begin to praise Him, thank Him for the many things He does for us.  Praise will take our minds off our negative feelings and place our focus on God’s goodness.     Let us with determination praise, rejoice in the Lord, sing, do a nice thing for someone, and we will see the yoke of slavery lift.  He wants to be everything we need; He wants to be our peace; He wants to be our healer.   Let us tell Him what we are planning, and ask Him to work it out for us.   I truly understand that this way of thinking is very difficult, and will slow us down, however, it is the only way that will bring peace, clarity about how good, powerful and protective our God is… (There are times that we go back to the same sin all over again.  Yes, it is not at all easy but by the grace of God, we will be victorious against sin.  We just need to cooperate with God’s plan for us).  Cynthia Abegail for New World.

"MY SWEETNESS IS PURE AND COMES FROM HEAVEN" MESSAGE OF MOTHER MARY (FRIENDS OF THE MOTHER OF DIVINE MERCY)





The Mother of Jesus is known of her sweetness, gentleness and purity.
These qualities are heavenly, not earthly.  Our beloved Mother exudes
a manner worthy of praise even during her presence on earth about 2000
years ago.  At the age of fifteen to sixteen years of age, she was able to
respond to the call of God Almighty,"Behold the handmaid of the Lord, be
it up to me according to your Word."

Yes, Mother Mary gave the message to the world that His Son affirms that
weakness is strength.  For only by weakness we become docile to the
commandments of God.  A proud man could never be submissive to Him
because that man sees himself as another god.  Whom do we have to please?
The world or God Almighty?

The choice is ours for free will was a gift given to us.  Yet, Mother Mary
always gives the message, "Pray, pray and pray!"  The time is short, man
has to be vigilant.  There is no time to lose now, "Repent and believe the
good news."  The time starts now!  Prepare well because salvation of souls
is a serious matter!  It meant eternity in heaven---bliss, joy and peace.

A VERY WISE STORY FORWARDED BY ABRAHAM, G

A VERY WISE STORY -LOVE, WEALTH AND SUCCESS.

(This is not only a very wise story but a valuable one too! Thanks Abraham,G )
A women came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards
sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them.
She said " I don't think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in
and have something to eat. " " Is the man of the house home?" , they asked.
"No", she replied. "He's out." "Then we cannot come in", they replied.
In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had
happened. " Go tell them I am home and invite them in!"

The women went out and invited the men in. " We do not go into a House
together," they replied. "Why is that?" she asked. One of the old men explained:
"His name is wealth," he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, "He is Success and, I am Love."
Then he added, "Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of
us you want in your house."The woman went in and told her husband what

was said. Her husband was overjoyed. "How nice !!, he said. "Since that is the
case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!"
His wife disagreed. "My dear, why don't we invite Success?"
Their daughter-in-law was listening from the other corner of the house.
She jumped in with her own suggestion:
"Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then filled with love!"
"Let us heed our daughter-in-law's advice," said the husband to his wife.
"Go out and invite Love to be our guest."Love got up and started walking
towards the house. The other two also got up and followed him. Surprised,

the lady asked Wealth and Success:
" I only invited Love, why are you coming in?"
The old men replied together: " if you had invited wealth or success the other
two of us would've stayed out, but since you invited Love,wherever he goes, we

go with him.

Wherever there is Love, there is also WEALTH and SUCCESS!!!!"

TRUE LOVE (ELIZABETH BARRET-BROWNING) FORWARDED BY THOMAS PHILIP RANNI



TRUE LOVE
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with passion put to use
In my old griefs and with my childhood's faith
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
-Elizabeth Barret-Browning

poem of one of the greatest poetess of all time,
