Inspirational Poem: Prayer

My friend,

if we clothe everything we do
with prayers, love, faith and hope
and lace it with a
forgiving heart
then miracles happen.

if at first, we fail to notice them
let’s look again….and again…..and again
and slowly, we will perceive
with the eyes of faith
what naked eyes failed
to behold in awe and wonder.

for

if we pray, our starving faith
will be nourished
and it will produce more love
that will make us alive
with zeal leading us into action
for idle faith will not bring us
to the fulfillment
of our dreams.

If you believe me, my friend
then, our love,
our faith,
our hope
our forgiving
will sing together
with the melody of the prayer
of thanksgiving to God
for the birth of receiving much
and giving more!

Inspirational Poem: Today

Arise, my friend
it’s dawn again!

Look to the east
and watch
as the horizon slowly
brings birth to the sun.

Ah!!! our sun
is shining again
it’s every rays bring hope
breaking all the clouds of hopelessness.

Come and enter
the shining beauty
of TODAY!

Smile!
Rejoice!

Greet TODAY
with a grateful heart.

God gives sunshine
after the rain!

Inspirational Poem: Wisdom

Life is a continuous journey
of learning and learning
of experiencing the joys of fulfillment
the pains and sorrows
of making the wrong turns
in the crossroads of life
of struggling to overcome
the giant waves
in the sea of life
of striving to surmount
the vicious cycle
of the vicissitudes in life.

But our trials and errors
should not cloud our vision
of hitting the mark
nor should it be an obstacle
in reaching the end of the rainbow
of our dreams.

Let us remember that
WISDOM is the fruit
of the mistakes we committed
in the past.

The past is so valueable
for what we are today.

Love Is Like A Star

I was choosing a stationary for my e-mail, and I fell in love with the blue and white stars sprinkled against a background of a blue, blue sky.

It reminded me of someone and so I sent this dear friend of mine an e-mail. Jokingly, I wrote….” when you fall in love, hold it in your hands like a star!!!” And….let it shine forever!

Love is like a star, it twinkles in the eyes of the lover.

And I added….just trying to be poetic. Ha ha ha ha ha

New Year!

Twelve midnight!!! Justin, my grandson was jumping up and down while shouting at the top of his voice, “Happy New Year!” And in chorous, we answered in jubilation, “Happy New Year!”

And to 2009, I greeted it with ” Happy Birthday” , with a birthday wish of….” May ‘you’ have a blessed, bountiful, peaceful, and happy year.” Ha ha ha ha, I wonder if I am the lone wisher of 2009 who said it in a very personal way.

As I bade my good-bye to 2008, i did not forget to say my “thank you” to it. The old year has brought with it the memories of my joys, accomplishments, pains and sorrows, unfulfilled dreams, meeting new friends and many more. The thanksgivings are for all the lessons and the wisdom I gained and received the whole year round.

And to God, I did thank Him for 2008! And for the hope that 2009 brings, I could never thank Him enough!

And to everybody, “Shalom” and Happy New Year!!!

Welcome!

At last I have decided to use the Internet as a medium of sharing my experiences and writings about my life as a Christian. I hope that what I put here will serve as an inspiration to those who read them.
