“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:
a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.”
~ King Solomon. Ecclesiastes3:1-8 Continue reading Time for Everything →

It’s shine cannot be ignored.
Big and bright. Laced in gold.
Begging to be held and owned.
Sparkling, distracting, exciting.
Thus you reach out in a heartbeat.
You stretch forth to grasp it.

I am doing what we humans do. Just like birds perch, I am
Standing quietly on the front porch.
Overseeing the activities of fellow human beings.
The man drawing on a smoke seated beneath a weeping tree.
The man walking his dog in his winter pajamas.
His dog’s tail wagging aggressively.
The street vendor playing his sales recording ceaselessly.
The ethnic man taking a pandering walk around the neighbourhood.
The youths moving around with the apparent burden of adulthood.

He cuddles a baby to sleep
Yet researched in the Books of the Pharisees
He draws the algorithm of creation, yet his algorithm seems inverted
For geometry is authored by his hands, pinpointing him at the center

We all are the very face of God.
The haughtiness in this one
The timidity in that one
The dismissiveness in this one
And the ephemeral nature of the other
These are but the face of God.

Love is patient, love is kind…
Love does not envy neither does it boast
Or so the saying goes.
‘I love you’ is said everywhere for everything at every time.
Love is uttered in every other sentence.

This is a day, a week, a month, a year, a life, and a lifetime that the Lord has made. I will rejoice and be glad in it.
~Inspired by Psalm 118:24
“If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
~ Psalm 23
