The Plunge!

‘The step between prudence and paranoia

is short and deep.

Prudence wears a seatbelt,

Paranoia avoids cars altogether.

Prudence washes with soap;

Paranoia avoids human contact altogether.

Prudence saves for old age;

Paranoia clings to every penny!

Prudence prepares and plans;

Paranoia panics.

Prudence calculates the risks and takes the plunge;

paranoia never enters the water.’

I read this today and it had a profound effect on me. I have been extremely busy at work, and coupled with my upcoming book, it was like walking in a sea of unending deadlines. But then I paused and allowed these words sink into my spirit, mulling it over, I realised that as humans, we’re certainly creatures of comfort, and taking the plunge could be easier said than done.

What do I mean by plunges? They’re simply changes, making new decisions and following them through. Having faith in God and yourself (if you believe in God) and stepping out to make the needed changes to your life. To reach a glorious destiny, you have to stop holding back. Some have changed their lives by going to college and following their dreams, others signed up for reality shows, and some, just improving their skills by attending night school.

But you must first take the plunge!

I need to apologise for my silence, I have been inundated with work and had certainly missed a lot of posts. Please bear with me, and I’ll catch up soon. I’ll be travelling out of London this weekend but would be back next week, before then, I’ll still visit your wonderful websites!

Have a fantastic month!  October had always been my best month (I was born in October! ;) ) and as the weekend inch closer, just have fun and enjoy life!

Much love, always!

Life’s 3rd Edition…

Strange blog post you might say but how good would it be if one can have different editions of one’s life! As a writer, I can edit and re edit scenes, but that’s different about life! You can not rewind or re-edit things you don’t like. Most books have first, second and third editions. Life is not like that, we can’t have any editions, we’ve only got one shot! One edition…

Everyone who has been my friend on this blog knows I believe in God and the supernatural, I also believe in the good will and love of people and I really need a few prayers thrown my way today for a family friend (she’s more like my sister really) I’m going to call her SA.

SA is going to have open heart operation (she’s got holes in her heart) this Wednesday at one of the best heart hospitals in the world, St Bartholomew hospital in London and I must confess that sometimes I’m scared, sometimes I have faith and sometimes I wonder what the future hold for my dear SA. But I believe in the prayers and love of people. I would be there, holding her hand as she’s wheeled into the theatre and I’m sure things would work out fine.

Please pray for my sister SA, she needs it. It’s a massive, life changing operation…

I wish you love and peace wherever you are in the world. Live well dear friends.

Much love, always.

 

The Triune Being.

I’m in Love with the Triune Being.

 Darkness was under his feet and the hills danced with pleasure.

I circled round the sun and met four ministering angels.

They glared at me and I dodged their icy gaze.

I wondered why it was so and realised they were carrying the four pillars of the earth.

”What a difficult job,” I thought and they answered in unison.

”It’s not difficult daughter of Yahweh, you disturb the balance of life by coming here.”

”Huh, sorry,” and I scurried away through the universe.

I stopped over at the black hole and peered down.

Yet, His feet were there.

”Wow! You are everywhere!”

”Who’s there?” Yahweh bellowed but I noticed a chuckle in his voice.

”It is I, daughter of Yahweh.”

”What do you want?”

”I want to see your face.”

That was the last thing I remembered.

Whirlwind twirled me around and it tickles.

Then I saw Him, the face of Yahweh, my king and my Lord.

I felt unadulterated joy at the splendour of His majesty.

 His eyes were like mine, brown and merry.

When He laughed, the pillars of the earth shook.

He took me in His hands and I was lost in worship.

Such power. Such glory. Such honour!

I am in love with Him, He is my Triune Being.

The beginning and The end.

This is my 74th post and today marks my sixth month journey as a blogger. I am immensely grateful for the friends I’ve met on the blogosphere, though I can’t blog often as I used to due to my many projects, still, I’m blessed by all the awesome posts I’ve read!

 I am honoured with countless awards and had  amassed massive followers, thank you all for your friendship!!!

This is my poetic thought for today, I’m grateful to God for all the joys in my life. I know life could be incredibly hard at times but we also have wonders of the universe too. The mountains, the smile of a newborn, first words of a toddler, the joys and pains of motherhood. Life is good, and my God is good too!

Thank you for reading my posts!

Much love, always:)

A Track Of Light!

Sunshine

”I will not wish thee riches, nor the glow of greatness,

But that wherever you go, some weary heart shall

Gladden at thy smile, or shadowed life know

Sunshine for a while.

And so thy path shall be a track of light,

Like angel’s footsteps passing through the night!

(inscriptions words on a church wall in Upwaltham, England, Petworth, West Sussex)

These words gladden my heart and I hope you’ll find wisdom in it friends!

Much Love.

Always:)

A Love Is Born And Peace Is Given

Sorrow

The angels sing and heralds a glorious cheer

Mourning flees and Hope is rekindle

Gloom was replaced by shouts of Joy

Weeping fled, it was replaced with glee

Sorrows flee to the distant sea as the clouds roar in praise

The sea rise to the songs of glorious beings arrayed in attires of

splendour.

Trumpets sounds and we rushed to cheer!

Merry Christmas I say to my friends and strangers in the street.

I love you all, says I, daughter of

Peace…

I wish you my friends, a peaceful and joyous Christmas and to everyone who gave me awards, I appreciate you all from the bottom of my heart! Enjoy this season and give your souls reasons to cheer. Allow no place for sorrow or regret. Enjoy Today, December 24 2012 (here in the UK) is not coming again.

I love you friends:)
