Amazed

I am amazed at how we could all
Look up at the open skies and see
Something different from each other.
In response to, ‘What do you see? ‘
No answer given would be wrong.
Perception is a way of understanding,
Or interpreting something.
It is a mental impression.
With this said, we ought
To see and accept each other
In spite of our differences.
You Say Potato, I Say Patato
You Say Tomato, I say Tamato
Neither way is wrong.
I’m amazed and I welcome
The experience of another’s mind.
I’m amazed how we view
The color purple
And yet refer to it differently.
God is truly a God of diversity.
I am in awe of His magnificence.
Amazed…

God of Diversity

God created the sun, moon, and stars.
He created the universe and all that’s in it.
When He created man, he thought of woman.
Humanity He created in splendid wonder.
He also created the rainbow with its vibrant colors.
When He spoke Words, they became tangible.
When He thought of sounds, He created music.
We would never be able to phantom the Magnificence
of Our Creator.
He is truly a God of Diversity.
How are we able to go on and not see
the true intent of the Almighty.
He is a God of Oneness.
When I think about God’s Divinity and Diversity
I can’t help but look up and recognize…

2 Corinthians 10:4-5

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

Dreams

At the wee hours of the night
While in deep slumber,
The mind, heart, and emotion meets.
They meet to construct a…
Dream…
One that would elevate the dreamer.
Their partnership is ideal,
For they know what’s needed.
Dreams…
They know exactly what would cause
all walls of defense to fall.
Most times dreams come to bring answers.
Sometimes they bring hope to defeat despair.
Dreams…
Wake up dormant aspirations.
They know the dreamer better
Than the dreamer knows him or herself.
It’s amazing how one dream could be
All it takes for great determination
To reveal itself.


Dreams…
Come as a tool to help move the unmovable
Or one reluctant to move.
Dreams…
Could come from any filter
So moving with some discretion is imperative.
Praying about it and feeling God’s peace
Is permission to move forward.
Determining its purpose is vital.
Knowing and understanding its impact
Comes with analyzing the whole picture.
Dreams…
Are the blueprint of what
Must be worked on and become a reality.
Dreams are one of many ways God speaks to us.

“Accept – then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.”

My prayer: that we would be ever so mindful of what’s in front of us.

Despite the odds there’s so much to be grateful for.

“Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.”

I am grateful for Life, Health and Strength, Family, Friends and WordPress Writing Buddies.

I am alive and well, I’m breathing and performing my duties with jubilance and strength. I choose to. Each day I am reminded why I get up and do as I do. I’m grateful for my family. I’m grateful that they each serve as a reason for my push. I’m grateful that they are my blessings for God, our creator. I am grateful that God has given me just what I need in order for them to succeed in life.

I am grateful for friends that make me laugh and boy are they good at it. They are realist also. They speak their minds, they are honest. I’m grateful!

“Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it out to be.”

I’m grateful for my writing buddies here on WordPress. You put smiles on my face like no other. You do research and come back and share things that are relevant and share stuff that brings joy. I’m grateful for each and everyone of you. I’m actually grateful that we have this means called internet to be connected as we do. I’m so grateful.

And most importantly I’m grateful that I am a child of God! He calls me His own. I am because He is.

Love you guys………………… Keep smiling, keep pushing, you’re not alone!

Happy 4th of July!!!

The future as we move forward, the progress to be made, and development of our great country do not and I say, do not depend solely on technological advancements but on how we build social togetherness, love, support, and trust between our nation and its beautiful people. Let’s continue building a great nation under God, whom we can all rely on and be proud of. Let’s build to leave a great legacy for our children and our children’s children. Happy 4th of July!

Love is….

“Love is not selective, just as the light of the sun is not selective. It does not make one person special. It is not exclusive. Exclusivity is not the love of God but the “love” of
ego. However, the intensity with which true love is felt can vary. There may be one person who reflects your love back to you more clearly and more intensely than others, and if that person feels the same toward you, it can be said that you are in a love relationship with him or her. The bond that connects you with that person is the same bond that connects you with the person sitting next to you on a bus, or with a bird, a tree, a flower. Only the degree of intensity with which it is felt differs.”

I Press Toward The Mark

Day in and day out I press toward the mark.
The mark which God has placed before me.
It is this mark that propels me to keep moving forward.
I’m elated to know this mark beckons me on.
Thank God for the mark, it keeps me focused.

Day in and day out I am obligated to get up, go and be.
I am a woman of purpose and destiny but…
At times I must say, I have to stop and smell the roses.
Oh the smell of sweet fragrance. So worth the stop.
It is within these stops that I get rejuvenated.

I press and press to reach the finish line.
The prize is clear before my eyes.
In this I find the strength to press on.
In this I find the strength to leave what’s behind.
Day in and day out I press toward the mark.
