AIKO'S DIARIES (Part 1) by C. ABEGAIL

AIKO'S DIARIES (Part 1)
Six months had passed and I would say it is actually a superb experience.  When I was
young, I could not even touch an animal, but now I simply could not help cuddling the warm
and affectionate cat, Aiko.  One thing I notice is that she is not an ordinary cat.  She learns easily
and she responds quite fast.  I could not imagine myself being interested now and even embroiled
in the life of Aiko.  Not only me but all members of the family.  Suddenly she turned to be the
princess of the house.  Nevertheless, not a queen for I occupy that post.

Aiko is a fussy cat in terms of meals.  She does not eat anything that you place on her plate.  She
had that elegant taste, a bit of salmon and tasty tuna but quite repel beef, lamb and chicken morsels.
If you give the right food, she awards you with a smile and a cuddly whisk of the tail.

Aiko had that bit of a temper.  If she does not like the situation, her tail just grizzle and stands up
with reverberation.  I got afraid, I thought she is going to bite.  I kept my cool and she must know
that I am the Boss!   Later, she got the message; I gaze at her with authority and pouted at her
behavior.

I know that having a cat is a bit of part-time job.  With me who has a lot of things on my plate, I
have to juggle with the chores of an animal attendant.  Mind you, a little bit of psychology and
organisation is required.  During the day, let her play early sunrise until she is flat-out.  Well, time
to sleep till about  3 pm the time for her journey around the yard and surrounds.  At evening, she plays
again till almost 11 and I am now flat out.  Time to sleep for me and she had to sleep, too.  I am not
really being autocratic but just sensible.  At late dawn, she will wake me up, but that's good.  It is
time for morning prayers and we save energy for clock alarm.

After a year, my fondness for Aiko is near the crest.  But wait, I have to temper my love for the
cat because I would like the Lord to be always the centre of my love.  But everytime I go out, I look
at her and seems so heavy hearted to leave.  This is just normal affection, but I really have to
balance it.

Aiko is a superb guard.  Whenever there are people walking outside during the night, she will
purr.  It is like a dog but I save myself from the snarls and barking of a dog.  At the same time, she is maturing and getting over the charms of the male species.  She could not be bothered.  Well enough.
Yes folks, that's Aiko, an interesting canine specie.  I still believe that God gives us pets to be
amused and to make our life exciting in a way!

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH: BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL















Johann Sebastian Bach was described as "the most astounding miracle

in music" from the words of another musical giant, Wagner. He was
highly respected that he was considered: the most natural
genius in the field of music, an outstanding musical mathematician, a
supreme musical theologian, etc.


A prolific and a hard worker, Bach saw himself as more of a vessel for
divine purpose; much less as an artist. At the end of his work, he usually
wrote, Soli Deo Gloria, "To God Be the Glory."


The Well Tempered Clavier is the first masterpiece to use all twenty-four
major and minor keys. Incredible! Other masterpieces are Saint John's Passion,
Saint Matthew's Passion and the Mass in B Minor. His feat as a composer is
admired by choirmasters through the centuries.


By his organ works and sacred cantatas, there Bach kneels in "working out his
salvation." The cliche works, "he is the baroque's quintessence and summation."
This is a summary and review of Bach's legacy in the field of music.

NOVENA TO THE HOLY SPIRIT 

Holy Spirit, Lord of light!
From your clear celestial height,
Your pure beaming radiance give!



Almighty and eternal God, send forth your Spirit, who brought
order from chaos at the beginning of the universe, and peace
to the Lord's disciples.  Grant that I, as your creation, baptised in
your spirit, maybe filled with the seven gifts so that I may do forever 
your will and renew the face of the earth. (One Our Father, Hail Mary
and Glory Be).

BEST POEM IN THE WORLD FORWARDED BY SR ELSIE BABY

BEST POEM IN THE WORLD

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven's door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp--
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.

Bob, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How'd all these sinners get up here?
God must've made a mistake.

'And why is everyone so quiet,
So somber - give me a clue.'
'Hush, child,' He said,
they're all in shock.
No one thought they'd be seeing you.'

JUDGE NOT!!

Remember...Just going to church doesn't make you a
Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.
Every saint has a PAST...
Every sinner has a FUTURE!
Now it's your turn.. Share this poem. Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil...
It has no point!

Gayretta L.V. Beckrum
People don't care how much you know,
until they know how much you care.

"MY SHEEP LISTEN TO MY VOICE" REFLECTION BY PRAYER AID


My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. John 10:27-28

I live on the third floor. One day I went down to shop, I forgot something I needed at home, and decided to call my husband, and tell him what I needed, that I was coming back for it, and could he please bring it to the lift door (elevator door) and meet me there! He agreed. I reached my floor, waited then decided to step out of the lift and I saw him standing in our flat with what I wanted in his hand! I was in a hurry and grumbled all the way down, thinking he must have been busy on his computer so he did not pay attention to what I said, and on the heels of that thought came ‘how well do I pay attention to God?’ How well do you?
(Thanks to Jane Pimenta for this beautiful reflection on the value of listening.  The Lord calls but sometimes we are too busy to listen!  Superb).  New World

WHAT IF? REFLECTION FORWARDED BY MARIA CASSIA

WHAT IF ??

This is a question that almost always come to
our mind. What if I lose something? What if
they change their minds? What if nature
lashes again? I do not mean that we never
plan for anything. We do, and that is the order
of the day.
On the other hand, it is better to be more
optimistic in our lives. We can say, "If this
happens, this is what I am going to do. There
are some things beyond our control... O'
many at times, it's hard to keep counting.
I thought of diminishing the "control freaks" in
us because it will lessen frustration. We do not
rely on just fate but by the gifts of wisdom and
understanding given to us by God-- we use it
for the needs of others and ourselves.
There are times that there seems to be no way.
Indeed, there is always a way, on any circumstances.
But, only through the Most Powerful... the God
Almighty! It only needs faith even to the size of
a mustard seed.
When a miracle happens, some may frown and say
it is beyond reason or understanding. But of course!
The Lord is beyond reason and explanation! Let
us examine if our faith is big enough to merit
consideration from our beloved God.

A HEART THAT'S PURE BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

A HEART THAT'S PURE

The waves surmount, the gales are strong,
It must be a storm that breaks headlong
I gazed at the sky, the clouds pitch black
It must be a tempest sometimes in dark!

I looked around and somewhat a shadow
The mast to hedge on the ship in billows
O' strength is there, faith- hope-trust
It will be sunny after the rain embarks.

A heart so pure, never will I see again,
Beaming with a heart despite the rain
I will roam the earth but O' never find
A heart that's pure, so gentle as thine!

Hearken the voice, silence in the deep,
Melodies that echoes in the wilderness
Mountains that tower will not compare
Thine heart so pure bustling to share!

(The attached is our ARIANNA'S Poem. Arianna is a 5 year old
writer(now 6- poem is republished) who has published two short stories in our New World
already. She has written the following poem on her own and it
is below without any editing, except the spelling)


**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
