Jn 7:38 "Whoever believes in me, rivers of living water will flow from within them"

"Whoever believes in me, as Scripture says, rivers of living water will flow from within them." Jn 7:38


It is not us, or our works will issue out this living water.  It was very clear, believe first that "God sent His Only Begotten Son into the world so that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life."  (Jn 3:16).


Do not worry too much about the need to do everything in your own power.  Just believe and abide in Lord Jesus, as the Heavenly Father in Scriptures.  All are vanity!  There is no way to the Father except through Jesus Christ alone.  When one truly believes in his heart, then oases of living water will flow from within him.  Why?  The reason is when we believe in what the Heavenly Father says, the barrier of the original sin is broken as in our baptism.  The Lord lives in us, in our hearts and in our souls.  When the Lord is present in our life, the well of living water flows unending and generously.


How?  Let us not ask this question!  There is no how with the Lord.  Nothing is impossible for him.  What seems unreal and difficult is nothing.  Just like when Sarah doubted that she is going to bear a son, God Almighty said, "Is there anything too wonderful for the Lord?"  Nothing!  God Almighty, the Author of everything, the Ruler of Everything!


There is only one thing asked of us and do we need to complain?  Let us pray that God will open all of our heart to receive this living water.  Thank you Lord!  In Jesus, Mary, Joseph and all of angels and saints, Amen.

PRAYER FOR PROTECTION THROUGH THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF "JESUS"

Lord Jesus, by faith in your merits, I now take your precious blood and sprinkle it over myself and my family right from the crown of my head to the very soles of my feet. I claim total and complete protection for my life and my family. Lord Jesus, keep me free today from evil, sin, temptation, satan's attacks and afflictions, fear of darkness, sickness, diseases, doubts, anger, calamities and from all that is not of Thy Kingdom. Fill me Lord Jesus with the gift of your Holy Spirit and grant me the gifts of wisdom, knowledge, faith, understanding and discernment so that I will live today in your glory by doing what is right. I praise you Jesus, I thank you Jesus, I love you Jesus, I adore you Jesus.

I PRAISE YOU FOR YOUR WORKS ARE WONDERFUL: REFLECTION BY PRAYER AID


For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Ps 139:13-14


 You and I am most certainly imperfect, but we were WONDERFULLY MADE. God made me and you and said “it is good’ Yet we focus more on what is not‘good’ in us rather than what is good. We focus more on the mistakes we make during the day rather than all that we did well. To the extent we are harsh on ourselves, to that extent we are harsh on others, and then this becomes a block between us and God. Today let us decide to affirm ourselves, let us remember God loves us just as we are, so let us accept ourselves too.

(Thanks very much to Jane Pimenta for stressing the need for a positive attitude in life.  On the other hand, we need God's grace to block the negatives in our life although cooperation on our part is important too.  Superb!)  New World

AIKO'S DIARIES BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

AIKO'S DIARIES

It is winter again and the cold weather bites!  One thing I notice about Aiko is her fondness for summer.
She seems to rejoice on the harsh summer sun with a glow on her not so rosy cheeks.  When winter comes, she usually snuggle on her fluffy woolen bed with some extra cloths.  This is also the time she gains a reasonable amount of weight.  I remembered that animals hibernate especially on cold months.

Aiko is very wise!  When the heater is on, she quickly get a prime spot across the heater.  How I wish I have ducted heating, nevertheless we just have to be satisfied with what is readily available.  Now it is
time for dinner.  Guess what, she does not like tuna on wintertime.  She prefers chicken fillets but not lamb or meat at all.  Aiko is so fussy that I thought her domestication is up to high standard at this point.

Now, my son visited our place and he was surprised by Aiko's colour and weight.  I told him that cats do not need to diet unlike single women!  But my son quipped, "No cats need to be of reasonable weight, too."  I replied, "Alright, I will try to keep her on her optimum weight."  Aiko seems to understand and she wagged her tail.

Aiko will always be the princess of our family. She can feel it and folks, she is getting a bit of a prima donna attitude.  I do not like to spoil her at all but sometimes, I just can't help it.  Pets give delight to a family whether a cat or dog or something else!  God is good all the time!  We usually have good company.

Love God first, all will fall into place!

We always hear the message:  "Our lives must agree to what we adhere on!  Of course, one must obey God's commandments!  True!  No doubt about that.  On the other hand, my dear brothers and sisters, let us make our priorities right.  First, love the Lord your God with all your might, with all your souls, with all of your hearts and minds.  Things will fall into each place.  When you love God, you will love your neighbours for the love that you exude for God is not from you but from God alone.  If that love comes from Him, you will not hurt or offend your neighbour.

Rudeness and impoliteness is not from God.  If we do that because we are imperfect, think again!  Is God's love is in my heart and if I truly love God, should I do that? Backstabbing, telling lies about your friends or even enemies to destroy their reputation is not on!
Gossiping, for one, is not a preoccupation of a child of God!  I do not like to hear the preaching of a gossiper and a backstabber.  It annoys one to death.  I could better hear the babble of a baby or of an innocent soul.

Stop, look and listen.  If one wants to preach about the gifts of the Holy Spirit, look into your heart!  Do you like to share with others or do you like to grab everything for yourself.

Give chance to others!  As you would like for others to treat you, do it for the love of God.  Change yourselves not by your own doing but by offering your weaknesses to God.  Greed is one of the deadly sin.  Its not only greed of money, but greed of fame, greed of taking all duties, greed of taking ones duties from others.

Wake up before God reminds us:  Faithful servant, give the rest to your brothers and sisters.  You do not live for yourself but for service to one another.

Let us pray today that God will give us the gift of sharing and not hoarding, the gift of good manners, the gift of love that matters.  That we may learn to share our talents in a humble way, that we may treat others with respect.  Through the powerful intercession of Mother Mary, St Joseph, St Michael the Archangel, all of the Angels and Saints, all in Lord Jesus Name.  Amen!

Praise the Lord!  Alleluia

You're my Everything! Poem by Cynthia Abegail

As the sun rises from the east, I remembered You,

My Lord who never fails, my God whom I knew

As the sun sets to the west, I recollected You

My Lord who loves me, my God Who is true!


He gave me children who are so dear to me,

He gave me a beau who is so close as a bee,

He gave me grandchildren, a delight to see,

He gave me friends, supportive and free!




As I ponder in my rose garden, He is my all,

For without Him, I will have nothing at all,

I will be bare as a rock, without love to haul

And empty as a bird's nest or grass less land!




Everything is yours, the sun and the moon,

The seasons of summer, winter and spring,

The ochre flowers of autumn or fall's zing,

The great oceans and desert, the auroras!





I love you not only because You created me,

I love You because You truly nurtured me,

I love you because You brought the best 

You're my all, my everything nothing less!

Thank You God, for Everything


Thank You God for Everything

Thank you God, for little things that often come our way---The things we take for granted and don't mention when we pray---The unexpected courtesy, the thoughtful, kindly deed---A hand to reach out to help us, in the time of sudden need---O make us more aware, dear GOD, of little daily graces.  That come to us with "sweet surprise" from never dreamed of places.  Thank you God for our Nation, our Families, our Blessings!

MAGENTA: POEM BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL







MAGENTA

A purplish red colour is lively magenta,
As the mind is vivid like Spanish moor
But at noon, hollow as the rose allure
So warm that gales still in the ocean...

Magenta is the spice that mimics there
In my heart that boosts rhymes to share
Bubbles like lime steeping seems a lava
Flowing unabated; never seems to end!

Unlike some days when its emerald green
So lovely, O' the shine and vivacity beams
But not the one that skylark my dreams,
Magenta, striking and classy in the whim.

It is the colour of my ways, unlike salmon
Yellowish seems out of bounds and moan
And the deep blue sea summons oblivion
Magenta, the colour of my inspiration!

**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

AIKO'S DIARIES PART 111 "AIKO WENT TO TOWN" BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

AIKO WENT TO TOWN

Aiko looked so haggard and anxious when found her among the bushes on the other
side of the street.  I quickly fed her with her favourite tuna and salmon; seems to be a treat.
I resolve to be more careful next time as for her going and coming.  I thought she learned a lesson
too, that life outside is not easy because she is already a domesticated cat.

Then, my family in town invited us because one of them is having his birthday.  Time to pack up
all the necessary things for the journey.  I whisphered to Aiko, "You are going to have a good time.
We are going to town about an hour's drive from here."  She wagged her tail as if she was excited.

The day had arrived and we are all excited.  We are going to spend the weekend there.  After
hurdling the traffic in the city, we finally arrived to the town of Tarshish.  I love this place because
it is not overcrowded as in the city.  There are still many grasslands and marshes which evoke a
feeling of nature.  Aiko, went down from the car just like a regal princess.  She seems to be
surveying the place as it is the first time we went to town.  The house was newly-built so there is
an air of freshness there.

Aiko just run with all her might.  She loves to roll on the grasses and probably she treats them as carpet.BAfter an hour of playing, she went inside for her special meal.  The house has about 5  bedrooms, so she frolic around from room to room as if an inspector.  Finally, she doze off in one of soft cloth that I provided.

I love the scenery here.  We went outside to view the sunset.  Since the place was situated somewhat on a hill, it seems that we are closer to the sky.  The sunset at this time was a mixture of brown, red and bluish hues.  Just beautiful!  We can sense the glory of God in the manifestation of the sunset.  I can never forget these moments; I felt closer to the Almighty.

Well, Aiko woke up at about 7:00 pm and she seems so rested.  I start to cuddle it just like a mother
cuddling her baby.  The thing with Aiko, whereever I am she follows.  She never care much about other people but just look for me all the time.  Truly, the bond becomes stronger, she is a pet that is special to me and the family.  Then after the weekend, we went back to the city with a mix of sadness and comfort of going back home.
