**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.

To seek the Kingdom of God is like driving in a highway

Driving in a highway is not an easy feat!  It takes some skills and utmost care.  First, do not overspeed, so dangerous.  In the same way, when we seek God's Kingdom, we should not be reckless because to be a God's disciple meant that we have to think about the cost of the discipleship.  Gently, think about the responsibilities.  Secondly, when one meet an obstacle, the driver does not make a U turn.  There's no such things as turn right or going back.  You just have to keep going to reach your destination!  But of course, there is an end when you exit as you reach your goal.  Exiting is not the end of the day.  One has to meander to reach the final end.  In the same way, as life is ending, God still invites us to repent of our sins.  That's how God is so merciful to us.  Thirdly, one has to focus when driving!  Forget about everything and focus on God!  As the saying goes, "Seek Ye first the Kingdom of God and everything will be added unto you."  Do not ever doubt, because all of God's promises comes into fulfilment.


Let us pray that we will be vigilant in pursuing our faithfulness to God.  There would be trials but those suffering are sweet if we know the rewards of our perseverance.  If saints did it, why can't we?

THE GARDEN OF MY HEART; BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL




This is an example of how George inspire his writers for New World.  He has a beautiful way of saying things that's uplifting and makes you think you are a great poet and writer.  He is such a humble person not absorbed by his intelligence and creativity but always wish the best for his writers.  George, an exemplary novelist but what strikes us is his heart, a heart of gold with a multitude of friends.

Eternal rest grant upon his soul O' Lord, may perpetual light shine upon him and may he rest in peace!  Amen.


( The following is a beautiful, wonderful and meaningful poem by our esteemed writer Cynthia Abegail Bernardo. Only writers who are gifted and talented could produce such a literary gem)New WorldThe Garden of my Heart

The garden by the east side
Opulent as a queen so alive
A glimpse of exotic beauty
Irresistible fragrance of rarity.
At dawn, I visited this garden
The dew on my lips like a raven
Shivering and braving the cold,
Misty eyes did not hide the road!
How do I love thee?
I love thee as I love my garden
Nurturing everyday the moments,
Spent with you as a treasure!
How do I love thee?
I love thee as I water my garden
The care that is beyond my imagination

SERVE ONLY GOD: REFLECTION FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID

SERVE ONLY GOD

“We did not heed the voice of the Lord our God in all the words of the prophets whom he sent to us, but we each followed the intent of his own wicked heart by serving other gods and doing what is evil in the sight of the Lord our God.” Baruch 1:21


God is speaking to us through the scriptures, through loved ones, He is speaking to us all the time! Maybe we do not like what He is saying, or we find it difficult to change our view. In humility and faith, let us listen to Him, let us put our thoughts and plans aside and begin to ‘heed the voice’ of our God, and so avoid bringing misery into our lives. Let as ask the Holy Spirit to be sensitive to God’s guidance, and for the strength to obey His Word.

ROSE OF SHARON: POEM BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

ROSE OF SHARON


I know that the day is coming so soon,
Coming from the tents of Kedar moon
Ebony skin yet eyes like a doe of pearl
The sun has burnt : yet irises of dove...

Where is this Sharon, the king asks
It is where His love abides gently...
Head up high for from Lebanon
Solomon's bride shone of utter joy!

A metaphor of God's love for all,
The bride He cares forever, He calls...
Not to abandon at everlasting end,
To carry on odds and bliss bestows.

The love that's beyond understanding,
And who can fathom God's mind ---
Even the bride is puzzled in rhymes
Yet her eyes is on the Groom, the King!
Inspired by Song of Songs

DIVINATION AND MAGIC PROHIBITED: REFLECTIONS BY MARIA CASSIA








DIVINATION AND MAGIC PROHIBITED

"No one should be found among you who makes a son
or daughter pass through fire, or who practices divination,
or is a soothsayer, or an augur, or a sorcerer, or one who
casts spells, or who consults ghosts or spirits or who seek
oracles from the dead. For whoever does these things is
abhorrent to the Lord; it is because of such practices that
the Lord, your God is driving them out before you. You
must remain loyal to the Lord your God.  Deut 18:10-13

*As children of God, we are encouraged to be obedient to His
commandments. If we truly profess that we love God and
abide in Him, the practices of divination, magic, tarot, psychic
messaging, horoscopes, fortune telling, conjuring of the dead
should not be found among us. It is prohibited by the Lord!
If we have done it inadvertently or innocently before, the Lord
will forgive us if we approach Him with contrite sorrow and
humbly ask for forgiveness. For God's mercy is beyond
understanding, it is boundless as the ocean and His faithfulness
remains to those who love and seek Him.

Let us remind ourselves to "love
God with all our heart and with all your soul and with your might."
Deuteronomy




ALL I HAVE: POEM FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


                                         pic credit: FB

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!

THE CHICK AND THE EGG: SHORT STORY (E-BOOK) BY ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP

YOUNG ARIANNA'S(NOW about 11 YEARS OLD) E. BOOK/PAPERBACK BY WWW.AMAZON.COM
THE CHICK AND THE EGG (E-BOOK)

Arianna is a sweet, imaginative, and humorous seven year old first grader (now older) who has enjoyed creating stories before she could write. I recall her dictating stories to whoever was sitting closest to her. I believe Arianna's passion for writing stories and poems comes from a combination of her special talents, her grandfather, a writer himself, and from her preschool experience that taught based on a Reggio Emilia approach. Arianna learned early on to observe the simplest of details in nature such as the petals on a flower or the leaves on a tree. Her observations along with her imagination are the source of her poems and stories.

THINKING OF OUR TIME TOGETHER: STORY FORWARDED BY SR ELSIE BABY



ARE YOU AT THE EFFECT OF THE SITUATION?

(Sr.ELSIE Baby: A friend sent me this story:)

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to survive and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.
Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.
In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.
Turning to her daughter, she asked, ' Tell me what you see.'
'Carrots, eggs, and coffee,' she replied.
Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.
Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, 'What does it mean , mother?'
Her mother explained that! Each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were
Unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

'Which are you?' she asked her daughter. 'When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?
Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?
Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is
The darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate yourself to another level?
How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in.

Life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
You might want to send this message to those people who mean something to you to those who have touched your life in one way or another; to those who make you smile when you really need it; to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down; to those whose friendship you appreciate; to those who are so meaningful in your life.

May we all be coffee!!!!!!Realize Your Inner Magnificence

SOAR ON WINGS LIKE EAGLES FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

The day we begin to live without hope, will be the day, we are on a steep downhill!  Hope keeps us alive, hope keeps us motivated, and hope keeps us trying.   Hope in Jesus will keep us strengthened and praising God for we trust His love for us and His power over every situation.  We believe He can do all things and that He will see us through anything and everything.  Jesus is our hope and He is there with us, He is encouraging us to keep our faith alive in Him.  
Let us spend each moment we have worshipping our Father for His Power, Might, His love, mercy and compassion, and trust that He will restore all things..  Let us pray for other people who may be carrying similar burdens – all this will take our minds off our problems and keep us at peace.
