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!

THE RACE IS NOT TO THE SWIFT FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

ECCLESIASTES 9

Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the
battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor
favor to the skillful; but time and chance happen to them all.  For no one can
anticipate the time of disaster.  Like fish taken in a cruel net, and like birds
caught in a snare, so mortals are snared at a time of  calamity when it suddenly
 falls upon them.
                                                                                                       Eccl 9: 11-12

* Life is a mystery and an enigma.  Man has unanswered questions.  Life is not
like an experiment wherein one isolate the variables and the constant.  It is
one of the most unpredictable things in the world.  It does not mean that one
has to be fatalistic!  It only meant that we do not make gods of ourselves.  There
is a God whom we can trust.  Hence whatever happens to our lives, rest assured
that it was allowed by God for nothing pass the notice of our awesome God
Almighty.  All works well, in the long run for those who love Him.  After all is said
and done, the Lord has the last word!

Joy from the Lord


Why, my soul, are you downcast? Reflection by Jane Pimenta of Prayer Aid Group

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.  Ps 43:5
The Psalmist is encouraging himself out of his moods!  The Lord has planned today for us, every person we meet, every situation we face, He has allows it into our life.  He has given us strength and the ability to trust Him… His power is flowing freely to us, let us not waste the day fretting and whining.  Instead let us begin to praise Him, thank Him that today is His, and He is in control, and so we are safe.  (Thanks Jane for the great assurance that we are safe in God’s hands).  Cynthia Abegail for New World.

THE BIRDS ARE CHIRPING: REFLECTIONS by MARIA CASSIA


We're there times that your feet seems to fly from the ground.
These are joyful times when life seems kind to you.  One will
say, "Not much though!"  Yes, we do understand that life is not
a bed of tulips.  But it depends upon our attitude.  We can make
the most of the best and the worst!

If one can still appreciate the chirping of the birds, then joy
has not departed that person.  We realise that joy and peace 
could be elusive at times.

These states could be possible through intense prayer.  God is
the source of peace, joy and happiness.  Let us turn to Him
for all our needs.  He will grant us our wishes according to
his will.  Not our will, but Thine Will be done, Oh Lord!

MIRACLES: POEM FORWARDED BY PREETHA E. THOMAS

MIRACLES :Poem: By Preetha E. Thomas
( The meaning of this great poem goes into our heart and our honorable readers can judge how talented is this young poetess, Preetha E. Thomas. This poem is really beautiful and very meaningful.)
MIRACLES
By
Preetha E.Thomas

Some small, Some huge;
Some memorable, Some spontaneous.
Miracles come in so many forms;
A prayer answered,
A victory gained.
A purpose realized,
A vision unveiled,
A path discovered.
A helping hand,
A kind gesture,
A memorable gift.
A healing granted,
An obstacle removed.
A struggle ended,

A doubt cleared,
A fear conquered,
A talent revealed,
A life saved.
Miracles brighten our lives
Give us hope
Erase doubts
Strengthen faith
Miracles are GODʼS way of saying He cares
Miracles happen when we least expect them
Or sometimes when we most yearn for them.

They are the result of a fervent prayer
An unwavering faith
Of persistent hope
An undying patience.
Miracles happen everyday.
They are all around us.
True miracles are not just those that change our lives,
But are those that help change the lives of others.

ST ANTHONY OF PADUA --- A SAINT GRACED BY GOD BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

ST ANTHONY OF PADUA

THANKS TO THE WITTY MARIO MACARI FOR THIS

ART ABOUT ST ANTHONY'S MIRACLES!!!  NEW 

 

 

St Anthony of  Padua is an evangelical Doctor of the Church.

He lived during the period of great persecution of Christians.

He had rebuke many heretics and was able to convert through

God's grace, many unbelievers.


Those unbelievers returned to God's fold by witnessing miracles

attributed through his powerful intercession.  One famous miracle

is when he was preaching to heretics and they did not like to listen to

him.  Then, St Anthony preached to the fishes and said, "Why don't

they listen to me?"  According to the story, the fishes all lined up

and stand over the water in an erect position!  The heretics were amazed

and believed in the power of God.


Another miracle story is an occasion where he was challenged by

an atheist and said, "We will place before a hungry horse hay and

the host (body of Jesus) and we will see which one he will like!"

As the story goes, St Anthony raised a host before the hungry horse.

Suddenly, the horse knelt before the host!


Miracles are gifts of God to assist unbelievers to develop faith in Him.

As the saying goes, "For a believer, one miracle is more than enough;

for an unbeliever, many miracles are not even enough."


St Anthony has great faith in God.  Just like Mother Mary and St Joseph,

St Anthony is an exemplary example of a saint who loves God and take

God at His Word.

Jn 16: 23-24. “Ask and you shall receive”. Reflection by Cynthia Abegail

“On that day, you will ask nothing of me.  Very truly, I tell you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, He will give it to you.  Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.  Ask and you will receive, so that your joy maybe complete.  (Jn 16: 23-24).


It was very clear, the Lord reminds the apostles to ask the Father in His name and they shall receive.  Will the Creator of everything, who owns everything will not give what we need as long as we ask?  Is anything too wonderful for the Lord? The generosity of God is beyond compare!



We must praise the Lord at all times.  It’s not that we just ask and ask!  It’s good to adore Him first; then let us ask for forgiveness of our sins.  Afterwards, thank God for all the blessings you have received.  Finally, we ask God for all the things that we need and ask for solutions to our problems.




Dump all worries in the bin!  It’s an insult to God if we do not believe that He could do anything.  Have solid faith.  I know that sometimes we breakdown because of our weakness.  But at the end,  our faith and confidence in Him must prevail!  We were given the intelligence to think, therefore, let us use our brains to figure out the Awesomeness and Majesty of God Almighty!  Praise the Lord!  Amen.
