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

(Thanks to Thomas Philip Ranni for sending this
poem of one of the greatest poetess of all time,
Elizabeth Barret-Browning.  Excellent choice).

**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.

All I Have

The wonder and awe of your work
The eyes that can see the world
The ears that can hear chirping
All I have with joy ringing!


The love for you and the rest
The heart that feels not less
The feet that brings good news
All I have, thanks not blues!


The gaze at your Word so gentle
The looks of care not mellow
The compassion not shallow
All I have, I praise and hallow.


The courage in adversity
The modesty in eternity
The fortitude, not vanity
All I have is love for you!

Believe, all things are possible for God


"Believe, all things are possible if you believe."  Mk 9:23


Sometimes, we limit our perception, thinking that there are things not possible for God.  For us, we are limited as imperfect creatures of creation.  It is now time for us to reckon the bare truth that all things are possible for God.


When it comes to God, nothing is impossible.  But, one has to believe fully that what he prayed for will be given.  As a testimony, I have many things prayed for fully answered if I totally leave it in the hands of God.  But, when my faith wanes a bit, then the problems seem insurmountable.  




As lovers of God, things become easier if we totally surrender to God's plans for our lives.  At times of great faith, God fight the battles for us.  



It's not easy to do it just by words, but by deeds.  Believe fully just like the patriarch Abraham who offered his son to God without doubt, just like Mother Mary who accepted her role as Mother of Jesus for our salvation, just like all the saints who adored God in absolute awe, just like the Archangels and Angels who stand by on the side of God no matter what.





Let us pray today that God, our Heavenly Father will give us the grace of faith, strong and unwavering at all times, in joy and in sorrow, in good times as well as in moments of trials and tribulations.  Praise God!  Alleluia.  In the Most Holy Name of Jesus.  Amen

Do not worry: Reflection by Prayer Aid

Therefore, do not worry, saying ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or “What will we wear?’ For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.  But strive first for the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well”  Matthew 6:31-33
God lacks nothing!  He is the Source of all that we need.  Peace, joy, love, financial help, looking for a job?  He has it all….and the good news is, we are His children.   As a child of God we should live with confidence and hope for good things, and for solutions to our challenges.  No what happens to us today, (or does not happen) let us believe that we are in the shadow of God’s love.  Let us do what we need to do in our challenge and let God do what He has to. (Jane, you are gifted with the Holy Spirit.  Thanks for sharing with us your reflections and may our readers be fed with God’s Word.  Excellent!  (Cynthia Abegail for New World).

FOR THINE GLORY ALONE: PICTURE


“We are not forsaken by God,” Reflection by Jane Pimenta of Prayer Aid Group

We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but nor forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; 2 Cor 4:8-9
Our problems do not crush us, nor do they drive us to despair, and destroy us.  Have you ever given a thought to tall trees that are trimmed a couple of feet and yet after sometime, they grow back to their natural size?  They have a strong life within them to keep growing again no matter how much they have been trimmed!  (or pruned) Similarly, we too have an inner strength, a divine strength to see us through any “pruning” or challenge.   We have an inner strength to get up each time we fall, that inner strength is the Holy Spirit.  Many things are looking dim today, and sometimes our homes seem like “containment zones” without the virus.!!   Yet the Holy Spirit moves us to live with hope, to live safely, and He provides all we need.  (Very true!  The Holy Spirit moves in a person who fully surrenders one’s will to the will of God.  It may not be easy but can be done.  Excellent, Jane).  Cynthia Abegail for New World.

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


LOVE IN IT'S ESSENCE BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


This is a love poem dedicated to our valued readers...

Hearts may be fickle but not in love
Love is pure, noble no one can rob
Kind, giving, surmounting terrains
Seas, valleys, hills and mountains.

Captured artists in all dimensions,
Misty paintings or colorful eons
Music as elusive as doe-eyed deer
Waltzes and rhymes we can't bear!

Passionate, sometimes mellowed
Mutual feelings at its sudden peak
But in its essence, true and not bleak
Wishing the best for the love it seeks.

Warm embraces, gentle kisses
Rush of waves by the ocean
Whiff of dew on luscious lips
Hug of mirage on velvet eyes.

Scent of magnolias on the air
Touch of silky stir of moon
Dames of roses not to boon
Till the sun sets after noon.

Soft footsteps on the shore
When will I see you at lore?
Castles of dune near the tide
Missed my love by that side.

The clouds darken in the sky
Looming rain not far beyond
Will I forget you at bounds?
Tears of hope still at hand!

Bouquets of roses at my hand,
Reminisce a single poet's wand
It is better to have love and lost
Than never to have love at all...
