**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

love

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

"Ask and it will be given to you" Reflection by Cynthia Abegail


"So I say to you, Ask and it will be given to you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you.  For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened."  (Lk 11: 9-10).


It is one of the Lord's promises!  Ask, but are we persistent in asking the Lord on asking for what we need?  Are we just asking for material things and not for the things that matter in life.


Sometimes, we qualify only material needs as the highest priority in our lives.  On the other hand,  protection, happiness with our family, peace and spiritual growth are more important than those transient things.



Seek the Lord with all your heart and you will see His absolute goodness and mercy.  We may not feel it in an instant, but it will come.  It's a matter of faith!  Believe and God will never fail you.  But it just does not come like magic.  It comes at the most unexpected places and undetermined time.  We may ask why...because God is God!  No one can predict His ways, how can we?  For God's wisdom is beyond understanding.  Seek Him for you may never know, like a good shepherd, God is already seeking you and your soul for many, many years!   Allow Him to find you, even if we are in mud or quagmire, He will raise us up.


How do I know, you may ask!  Because He did it to me!  Praise the Lord forever and ever...In Jesus Name.  Amen.

God provides; do not worry: Reflection by Prayer Aid (Jane Pimenta)

But if God so clothes the grass of the field,. Which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the over, will He not much more clothe you, you of little faith?  Matt 6:30
Electricity goes off frequently in God – one such night I got up and was walking towards our dining room groping my way around, dashing into chairs not put back into place,  kicking the kids stuff left on the ground.   Here I was sleepy, all I wanted was a glass of water – but could not reach it without groping.  The next day I was telling my husband what happened and while I talked to him I realised something.   All our problems, our stress, our anxiety and fears are periods of darkness, times when we find it difficult to cope.  The reason I am convinced is, that we keep groping for things, for people, in our darkness instead of turning to Jesus the Light of the World.  Let us look for God in times of darkness then we will not dash into chairs and stuff lying around on the ground! (Very true, we tend to worry too much.  Let us put unconditional trust in the Lord.  Superb reflection, thanks Jane).  Cynthia Abegail in behalf of New World.

A TRANQUIL MOMENT: POEM BY MERCY ABRAHAM

                                                        
**A Tranquil Moment **

A poem by Dr. Mercy Abraham
Al Ain, Abu Dhabi- UAE


My Soul soars to worlds unknown
Like a skylark that soars across the lake
What heights of joy and depths of deep Love
It can go and find its treasures.

 Peace fills my mind at this moment solemn
As I gaze across the green placid lake
Where else can I find such a place except
In my own country- "Gods on country!

Where birds come to nest from eons abroad.
It is just pleasant to spend some moments
In this tranquil time - when time seems to be standstill.
And peace soaks into my heart

The shots seam very clear, which
Does not fade in memory,
when You look across the years
What nostalgia will fill your mind, when

You be old and want to go back
To your cherished moments in your memory- lane---
I can see this now as I sit and
Jot down this lines beside the tranquil lake

And as I look at the white birds across the marshes
Some of the birds fly in pairs and
Dance in the air, and go back to their nests
Where their bird lings hatch

I love this moments where everything is quiet
And at a slow pace, when I go back
To my restless and monotonous pace, and
I will be glad if my words bring cheer to you
Across the ocean, and you are far away.

------------------------------------------------------------------

                                                         
(Thanks to Dr Mercy Abraham for sharing with us this sweet and
romantic poem that gently unfolds a loving tone in the tranquil
moments of nostalgia and pleasant memories!  Excellent!)

Avoid the haughty eye: Reflection by Cynthia Abegail

At times, our intense abiding to the precepts of doctrines will not help us at all.  With observation, I have seen people who do all the liturgical steps of an almost saintly life!  On the other hand, they forgot the other side of the coin.  Love of God and love of one’s neighbour should operate in tandem.  We can’t separate the two commandments.


No matter how much our faith is, then we look at our neighbour with haughty eyes; nothing happens.   It does not sound good.   Then, we may look down upon others, abuse them verbally or treat them coldly.   It’s not the right kind of faith.  It’s with hypocrisy.




Come, let us have   a warm faith and good works.  That’s really what it’s meant to be.  





Dear Lord, grant us a sincere and strong faith and love for you.  Help us to translate this love into a love for our neighbours.  Let us avoid a haughty eye, but instead that we may love them as we love ourselves.



Cynthia Abegail

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

PSALM 14 "I Will Praise Your Name Forever"


"I will praise your Name forever my King and my God."

When we praise the Lord, we feel good!   Yes, because instilled in our very being is the predisposition to praise Him.  God is our King.  We admire our King, we love our King and we praise our King.


Why not?  God gave us everything we need and will provide for all the things we need in the future!  Of course, we need to pray.  It's not like we just wait till nothing happens.  The grace of God is always available, but as good children of God, we make our intentions clear to God.  He likes our hearts to be unwavering, though if we fail, God will accept and embrace us as long as we repent of our sins.


Let us pray today to our Almighty Father to grant us the grace of prayer and supplications.  That our hearts and souls be dedicated to Him.  That our allegiance to Him will last forever.  Alleluia!!!
All in the Most Holy Name of Jesus.  Amen.

PSALM 23: PICTURE BY ROSELIKE.COM

 

PSALM 23 IS THE MOST POPULAR 

PSALM OF DAVID.  THIS PSALM 

APPLIES ALSO TO OUR LIVES!

“Our Father who art in heaven” (Series 2). by Cynthia Abegail


Our Father who art in heaven:  Our Almighty God is in heaven.  It describes a place of privilege promised to the heirs of the Kingdom.  God is everywhere and nothing can limit his power or presence.  On the other hand, there is a place that is reserved for his righteous children.


Many were fascinated by “heaven.”  It is frequently attested as Paradise, a place of bliss and unending joy.  The very opposite of Gehenna, where there will be weeping and grinding of teeth (Book of Revelation).



One has to prepare for heaven!  It must be the goal of each and every person; although each one is given the free will to choose where he would like to be after death.   This is the reason why the Good News has to be spread in the world...




“For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son so that whosoever believe in him will have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
