THE FLOWERS IN A MEADOW: POEM BY ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP


THE FLOWERS IN THE MEADOW: ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP


THE FLOWERS IN THE MEADOW
*********
A LIMERICK
ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP
I WAS WALKING IN THE MEADOW

AND I SAW A FLOWER THAT WAS YELLOW

IT STARTED TO RAIN

AND IT FELT LIKE JELLO

THEN THE RAIN STOPPED

AND ALL NEW FLOWERS POPPED

AND ON MY WAY HOME
I THOUGHT OF A FUNNY FELLOW

For Mama: Poem by Tahl MEJIA-Gopez

          

       For Mama

In my omniscient wholeness
I discern your dull brokenness,
your slashed womb where blood oozed
as I was let loose,


(picture of Tahl’s mother, Naty Jesusa)

your disfigured breast
where milk squirted as I was being fed
your hardened heart
where tears rolled
as I was growing old
your oppressed hand
where veins showed as I searched the world
In my dull wholeness
I behold your omniscient brokenness.

(Touching and beautiful poem from our new Poetess from the Philippines.  Welcome Tahl).  Cynthia Abegail for New World.

Love God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength

Reflection by Maria Cassia

“Jesus answered, “The first is, “Hear O Israel:  The Lord our God, the Lord is one, you shall love your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength.  The second is this, “You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”  There is no other commandment greater than these.’



All of our lives should be based on these pillars of Christianity.  There is a difference between the 1st greatest commandment and the second one.  The first love is one of Worship and Adoration while the second one is filial love.


Still, love God above all!  When one loves God fully and devotedly, the 2nd commandment is easy to follow.  The grace of God being showered on you as you love Him 100 percent, no doubt, no ifs and buts:  you will love your neighbour spontaneously.  Why?  It’s because, only His grace and mercy will provide all the rest that we need.



Relationships are more fruitful if we surrender this area to our Creator.  The grace of unity and friendship with God Almighty binds all with love and blessings as we abide in Him!



This is not a secret but it’s the great truth.  Love the Creator of all things first and foremost.  All things will follow and all will be given unto you.




The others will argue, Love your neighbours first!  No, love God Almighty first.  We love you, God Almighty in your Son Jesus by the grace of Holy Spirit! We love our neighbours too, as You have commanded. Thanks forever and ever.  Amen

GOD IS LOVE: REFLECTION FORWARDED BY JANE PIMENTA

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him. In this way, love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment, because in this world we are like him. 1 John 4:16-17 by Jane Pimenta
To encourage us, God reveals over and over again through His Word that He is Love! With this in mind, when things go wrong for us, when friends let us down, when our days seem to be filled with turmoil, let us continually repeat “God is Love” When our prayers remain unanswered, let us say “God is Love” In every situation happy or sad, let us affirm “God is Love” As we go on repeating this, in our hearts and even loudly, our confidence in God will increase, His grace will flow into our hearts, and we will follow His leading. In this lies our comfort and peace.


(Such a deep and moving reflection from our Jane Pimenta! Excellent! Thanks
Jane). New World

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.

Vigilance in Prayer by Cynthia Abegail

 If there is something that we have to do the most in this world is prayer.  Prayer work wonders.  As the Lord assured that even a faith as small as a mustard said, one can do almost impossible things as uprooting a tree and transferring it to the sea!


Brothers and sisters, this is the crucial time to pray especially in a pandemic aside from following the rules of our nation (which is important and imperative).


Let us beg God today to help us get out this plague.  This is a plague that have affected millions of people.  It’s not an ordinary one and it’s a serious matter.


Let us be on our knees and cry out to the Only hope.  Lord, have mercy!  🙏🙏🙏

**A POEM TO MOM**

DEAR MOM

You are as sweet as an Easter Bunny
And Your hugs are so fluffy
You smell like daisies and the best part
is when you are with me
And I am with you
You fly in your imagination like a butterfly
You land on a flower.
You get nectar from the flower you go into your coccoon
When it stops, there is a rainbow in the sky
I see unicorns on the rainbow

WITHOUT YOU/BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

This is a love poem dedicated to couples and lovers, young and old alike...


WITHOUT YOU Without you, summer seems winter so icy Much a spring barren of flowers like a lily Autumn that sweeps the leaves of colour Like cold season, dreary O' dark oat lore! Without you, tears flow as drops of sienna.  (Excerpt of the poem)

PSALM 149: "PRAISE THE LORD" by Cynthia Abegail


ALL CREATURES PRAISE THE LORD!!!

God is our Creator!  Without God in our life, we are non-existent.  Our presence
is based on God's power to create and annihilate.  But God is loving, He does not
like any man to be lost.  He gave us free will to choose whether to love Him or
not.  Yet, why will we not?
