PRAYER OF TOTAL SURRENDER BY MARIA CASSIA


ALMIGHTY GOD, CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE,
I TOTALLY SURRENDER TO YOU MY LIFE,
MY FAMILY AND ALL THAT I HAVE.  I
TOTALLY YIELD TO THY EVERLASTING POWER
AND MIGHT.  THINE ART MY ROCK, MY FORTRESS
AND I DEPEND ON THINE PROVIDENCE AND
GREAT MERCY.
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, FOR YOUR CARE,
FOR YOUR PROTECTION AND FOR YOUR
INCOMPREHENSIBLE LOVE FOR ALL OF US!
THANKS FOR EVERYTHING FOR WITHOUT THEE,
I COULD DO NOTHING. In the most Holy Name of Jesus, Amen.

The Spirit God gave us gives power, love and self-discipline


“Don’t be afraid, thus says the Lord: Reflection by Prayer Aid


A strong wind was blowing and the waters grew rough.  When they had rowed three or three and a half miles, they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water; and they were terrified.  But he said to them, "It is I; don't be afraid."  John 6:19-19
When life gets rough, and it often does, Jesus is always with us.  He says to us the same words He said to His disciples “It is I, do not be afraid”
As I share this encouraging you, I am trying to find comfort in the above scripture myself….. I am dealing with an  difficult situation presently and added to this I know very little how to proceed.  I am dependent on others to be right so I am right too!  I keep telling myself “If the Lord has brought us so far, He will complete the work in our favour”    Striving to remain trusting the Lord, can be very wearing out – but it’s the only way we can learn to depend on God and grow in our faith…. Let us not give up but keep trusting He will never let us down.  He is always on our side.
(I agree!  We keep on trusting the Lord no matter what happens.  Things can be rough sometimes, but He will get us through).  Excellent reflection).  Cynthia Abegail for New World

CAMIGUIN ISLAND BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


CAMIGUIN ISLAND


Aboard the ship, along the rocky seas
Gaze at leeward side, rock open gales
Princess of Orient roars and bounces
Mirth in the breeze as shore awaits---



The island vies with beauty that abounds
Not only by waters but across the land--
The plumes of the birds that fly and arise
Rainbow in colour, a delight for my eyes!



Rocks of granite, quite basalt as O' dawn
Arrayed in pathway as I enter and swoon
Entered the nipa hut so tender and frail,
Come with me as the scent of nard bells!

Do you like to see volcano near the mount?
Simmering smoke shoots as a spoiled child!
Elegant in bearing, boiling, brash not cool
As it spews hot; a fiery furnace red as bull...



Have I seen the paradise near a waterfall?
Gushes not trickles the water as if a wall
O' beauty, never will I be in want again--
A spectacle that lasted a lifetime of rain!



Camiguin island, thus carries its name,
Holiday etched; the wonder of a place
On the eastern side of sea at its byways
Come, fulfill the yearning of the days!

Love is patient, kind/ 1 Cor 13: Picture


Give more and receive more: Mk 4:24-25: Reflection by Prayer Aid

"Consider carefully what you hear," he continued. "With the measure you use, it will be measured to you--and even more.  Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him." Mark 4:24-25
To the extent we give of ourselves, of our resources, give forgiveness, to the extent we are compassionate and are merciful, to that extent will we receive back from the Lord.  If at any time, we feel a spiritual dryness, or we feel alone, let us check our giving!  If we give nothing to the Lord, we will be dry.
No matter what our schedules are, or how anxious and worried we are, let us put ourselves aside today, and decide to love God by reaching out to someone in need.  (Thanks Jane for this reminder.  In the busyness of our life, we forget and neglect those in need.  Superb reflection).  Cynthia Abegail for New World

Set your mind on the Spirit: Reflection by Jane Pimenta

 “For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” Romans 8:6 
St Paul is presenting us with a choice: that if we set our minds on God, His Holy Spirit, will bring us an amazing life, through the difficulties that we will face.   If our minds are set on God, we become teachable, and eager to change what is not pleasing to God.  When our minds are on the Lord, we are fully attentive to Him, He knows us completely, and can fulfil His wonderful plan for us.  Let us pray each day to be more and more attentive to the Lord, by submitting our minds to Him. (Very good reflection!  The Spirit is the opposite of the flesh).  Cynthia Abegail

THE ORANGE TREE BY JOHN SHAW NEILSON (Excerpt)#FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

THE ORANGE TREE
The young girl stood beside me. I
Saw not what her young eyes could see:
--A light, she said not of the sky
Lives somewhere in the Orange Tree.

--Is it, I said, of east or west?
The heartbeat of a luminous boy
Who with his faltering flute confessed
Only the edges of his joy?

Was he, I said, borne to the blue
In a mad escapade of Spring
Ere he could make a fond adiu
To his love in the blossoming?

--Listen! the young girl said. There calls
No voice, no music beats on me;
But it is almost sound: it falls
--This evening on the Orange Tree..


John Shaw Neilson

(Some nice jokes to laugh for our exercise today!!Thanks) New World
I finally got around to going fishing this morning
but after a while, I ran out of worms. Then I saw
a King Brown with a frog in his mouth, and frogs
are good bass bait.
Knowing the snake couldn't bite me with the frog
in his mouth, I grabbed him right behind the head,
took the frog and put it in my waist bucket. Now,
the dilemna was how to release the snake without
getting bit.
I grabbed my bottle of Bundaberg rum and poured
it in its mouth. I release him into the lake without
incident.
I carried on my fishing with the frog. A little bit
later, I felt a nudge on my foot. There was that
same snake with two frogs in his mouth...
