Thanks for the Gift of Life!!

Creations of the heart are blooming like flowers in the field.

The wonders of nature are entwined everywhere.

My spirit overflows. Footprints of the piper are sealed

In the pristine dunes while the echo of the wind

Unfolds whispering melodies.

Dreamland begins to roam freely...

Hear me coming as I go.

I am the wind, the trip into the mist, the sea...

Hear the echo of voices, the heartbeats of waves crushing

On the sand, as I leave my footprints on the land.

Hear the roaring thunder, for my crying is just a reminder.

Please, let the world be and set them all free!!

I share this poem today.

The morning herald

Brought good news to my ear.

The nightingale by my window

Whistled a tune of no fear.

The mighty thunder

With its roaring spells,

Provoked the sudden ways

Of our local Church bells.

The Lord was standing at my door.

I felt His Holy presence and love.

He had rescued my soul and brightened my day.

He whispered His love and hope from above.

The truth will set you free. (John 8:31-32)... So Jesus said to those who believed in Him, "If you obey my teaching, you are really my disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

Dear Readers,

Thank you for lingering in my poetry corner for a while, dear readers!!

I am thrilled to admit that I love new challenges. I am engaged in a diverse rainbow of assorted tasks in our natural environment with teamwork. One of many dreams and goals is to pursue live music venues with my creative writing. I am positively sure that I could be a wonderful asset for interested individuals with my artistic and poetical temperament -as golden shares with lasting values. Don't let anyone break your spirit! I shout. Don't let your spirit, soul become idle! Water it, feed it with food for the spirit. My throbbing heart vibrates with the melody of Heaven in tune with God.

I just can't wait to see the Lord, and to be reunited again with my dear family and ancestors. I miss them so dearly! You see, God has set a plan for my life. My testimony is a whispering sound riding in the wind. Rejoice, be glad and enjoy living in this day, the day that God has made. The Lord is a lighthouse at sea when our vessel may go adrift. I have learned to allow God to work on me, and how to be healed with His natural mighty powers. I am still looking to a promising future, because I am a survivor. Praise the Lord!!

Dear Lord, Jesus Christ,

I thank You for this newborn day, I thank You for my being able to see and to hear this morning. I am blessed because You are a forgiving God and an understanding God. You have done so much for me, and You keep on blessing me. Please, forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing You.

I ask for Your forgiveness. Please, keep me safe from all danger and harm, sweet Lord Jesus. Help me start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind, so that I can hear from You. Please, broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things that I have no control over, and give me the best response when I am pushed beyond my limits.

I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Please, continue to use me to do Your will. Continue to bless me that I may be a blessing to others. Please, keep me strong that I may help the weak... Keep me uplifted that I may have words of encouragement for others in need.

I pray for those that are lost and can't find their way. I pray for those who may feel unloved, unwanted, forsaken. I pray for those that are misjudged and misunderstood. I pray for those who don't know You intimately. I pray for those that will ignore the sharing of this morning prayer. I pray for those who don't believe. But, I thank You that I believe that God changes people, and God changes things. I pray for all my sisters and brothers in Christ, for each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, health, love and joy in their homes; that they are out of debt and all their needs are met.

I pray that every eye that reads this morning prayer knows that there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in Your hands for You to fight, dear Lord. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees it.

Dear Lord and Heavenly Father, I love You and need You. Please, come into my life and heart. In Jesus' Mighty and Holy Name, I pray. AMEN.

I am a Warrior and Soldier for Christ. I have much work to do in a Brotherhood of Christians in Action. United, we shall win!!

Thank you in advance for reading my posts!! This Blog will retire soon.

God may bless you all!!

Jesus Christ, our dear Lord and Savior is waiting for you at the door of your heart. Would you invite Him to come in and take control of your life??...

God has an amazing plan for your life.

If you believe in the healing power of God, ask with a faithful heart, and you'll be given. The Lord is the Greatest Healer, and the Greatest Physician over all mankind.

"The Truth will Set you Free." (John 8: 31-32)

So, Jesus said to those who believed in Him, "If you obey My Teaching, you are really My Disciples; you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

The life you choose. Life is the way you see it. Life is the way you perceive it to be. If you constantly focus on all the things that could go wrong, things will indeed go wrong. Turn your focus to the positive possibilities, and those possibilities begin to become real. Expect to find resources you seek, and they will be there. Know that life's abundance is available to you, and more of it flows through your life. From perspective, everything is subject to your own interpretation of it. Much more important than what happens is what you make of it, and you can make of it anything you choose. You are never at the mercy of random events, unless you allow yourself to be. No matter what may come your way, you can decide what it means to you, and how you will integrate it into your life. The life you live is the life you choose to see and to experience. Choose, in this moment and every moment, to fill it with joy, meaningful purpose and fulfillment.

The power of your thoughts. The focus of your attention enlarges and expands whatever you focus upon. That fact can either hurt you greatly, or help you immensely. Your complains, for example, give more power and presence to whatever you complain about. Your love, on the other hand, gives more unique substance and essence to whatever you love with lasting values. Put the focus of your attention not on what you wish to avoid. Instead, constantly direct your attention toward where you would like your life to go. Your unceasing thoughts have great power. So, frame those thoughts in a positive way that will put their power to work for you. The more you think you are, the more you are. What you do flows surely and steadily from what you think, so KEEP YOUR THOUGHTS FOCUSED ON YOUR DREAMS.

Concentrate your mind in positive thoughts, which will ignite worthwhile energy. Your powerful thoughts may be the tool, the instrument to get healings in whatever needs to be healed. Finally, ask for help to professional ones, but always carry a positive attitude as your mighty shield.

Focus and Purpose. Effort alone does not create achievement. Somebody can put forth a lifetime of effort and not have much to show for it. What counts is focused effort in the service of a meaningful purpose. Get that, and you're really getting somewhere. Just being busy is not going to make you successful. Instead of merely using up time, find a way to create real, desirable lasting values with the time you have available. Don't comfort yourself with being aimlessly busy! Challenge yourself to get meaningful results from your time and effort.

Outstanding achievement and disappointing mediocrity are both built from the same 24 hours in each day. The difference is not one of time or even effort, but a focus and authentic purpose. As long as you are making the effort, as long as you are using up resources, as long as you are spending the time, make it all count. Make a habit of doing what really matters, and you will ENJOY A LIFE THAT IS REALLY GREAT. Rejoice in this day, the day the Lord has made!

This Blog will retire soon. Thank you in advance for your kind visits!!

God may bless you all!!

I know many people are in much need of prayers nowadays. So, here is my prayer...

Dear Heavenly Father and Lord,

I believe in the Power of Prayers. I come here this day in prayers to appeal before You, Lord to pray with my humble heart...

I remember all those in need of prayers. I pray for the families of the victims who gave their lives to save others in September 11, 2001. I pray for the U.S. Troops who live Overseas at the present time, away from their home land, fighting for freedom. I pray for the U.S. Diplomats who live Overseas, away from their home land, working very hard to serve their Country, the U.S.A. I pray for the American people who struggle to achieve their goals for an economic growth, and a revival in their Finance Issues.

Dear Lord, Jesus Christ, be with them and protect them at all times.

I also pray to uplift to sweet Jesus for all those people who are sick, misjudged, misunderstood, homeless, in troubles of financial needs, with physical and/or mental illness, suffering emotional depression, with lack of self-esteem, away from home in another land, lost their home for one reason or another, away from their loved ones, suffering a terminal or a severe illness or undergoing a natural disaster, lost their dear loved ones, or they are hurting in one way or another. We believe in Your Miracles that You can perform at a single touch, for You are the Great Vessel of Healing Powers. Please, flood their souls with a Peace that passes all understanding, Lord. Stand by their side, and send Heavenly Guardian Angels of Protection on their way, in order for them to feel safe at all times. You are our fortress and our rock of salvation, dear Jesus; You are our source of life, the vineyard that makes our blood vessels exist and our creation. Please, dear Heavenly Father and Almighty Lord, embrace them into Your loving arms, make them feel Your unconditional love, strength, protection and grant them Your Peace, the way only You and You alone can give. Please, heal them in places where healing is needed; grant them comfort and strength to keep righteous lives going on Your mighty way, and let them feel Your unique love, mercy, compassion and joy in such a way that they will never feel lonely, forsaken or sad again. You have set a plan for each of us. Let us follow Your plan now!...

Dear Father and Lord, we need to feel the power of Your unconditional love and strength today and every day. We know that we can't win without Your help; we can't make it on our own. We need You forever, Lord. Thank You for Your unconditional love and protection in so many ways that we don't realize it! Sometimes, we don't even know that You have protected us, because we don't see what could have happened if You haven't prevented it. So, we thank You for all Your many blessings, we love You and praise You forever and ever. God's will be done in all circumstances.

In Jesus' most Holy Name, we ask these things and pray. AMEN.

Thank you for visiting my site and reading this prayer!!

Once upon a time, two brothers who lived on adjoining farms fell into conflict. It was the first serious rift in 40 years of farming side-by-side, sharing machinery, trading labor and goods as needed without a hitch. Then, the long collaboration fell apart. It began with a small misunderstanding, and it grew into a major difference and finally, it exploded into an exchange of bitter words followed by weeks of silence.

One morning, there was a knock on John's door. He opened it to find a man with a carpenter's toolbox. "I'm looking for a few day's work," he said. "Perhaps, you would have a few small jobs here and there that I could help with? Could I help you?"

"Yes," said the older brother. "I do have a job for you. Look across the creek at that farm. That's my neighbor. In fact, it's my younger brother! Last week, there was a meadow between us. He recently took his bulldozer to the river levee, and now there is a creek between us. Well, he may have done this to spite me, but I'll do him one better. See that pile of lumber by the barn? I want you to build me a fence, an 8-foot fence, so that I won't need to see his place or his face anymore."

The carpenter said, "I think I understand the situation. Show me the nails and the post-hole digger, and I'll be able to do a job that pleases you."

The older brother had to go to town, so he helped the carpenter get the materials ready, and then he was off for the day. The carpenter worked hard all that day -measuring, sawing and nailing. About sunset when the farmer returned, the carpenter had just finished his job.

The farmer's eyes opened wide, his jaw dropped. There was no fence there at all.

It was a bridge. A bridge that stretched from one side of the creek to the other! A fine piece of work, handrails and all! And the neighbor, his young brother, was coming toward them, his hand outstretched...

"You are quite a fellow to build this bridge after all I've said and done."

The two brothers stood at each end of the bridge, and then they met in the middle, taking each other's hand. They turned to see the carpenter hoist his toolbox onto his shoulder.

"No, wait! Stay a few days. I've a lot of other projects for you," said the older brother.

"I'd love to stay on," the carpenter said, "but I have many more bridges to build."

Remember this...

God wouldn't ask what kind of car you drove, but He'd ask how many people you helped get where they needed to go.

God would not ask the square footage of your house, but He'd ask how many people you welcomed into your home whenever they needed a place to stay. Will you welcome them or not??...

God would not ask about the clothes you had in your closet, but He'd ask how many people you helped to clothe, or if you had ever given your clothes away to the poors.

God would not ask how many friends you had, but He'd ask how many people to whom you were a true friend. Will you help to feed the poors, if you have some food to spare from your table served with plenty of food? Will you help them in times of troubles, or will you just walk away from them??...

God would not ask in what neighborhood you lived, but He'd ask how you treated your neighbors.

God would not ask about the color of your skin, but He'd ask about the content of your character, and if you would treat others in the same way you wished to be treated.

God would not ask why it took so long to seek Salvation, but He'd lovingly take you to His mansion in Heaven. The weight of sins is too heavy to carry alone. Be sincere with yourself and with others, because God reads your heart before you even do it. Will you help the ones in need? Are you one that buys everything with money? You see, a kind loving heart is priceless, that no money can buy. Are you my true friend for real? I hope to receive many comments on this post, before I retire it...

The Power of Love in the Book of Life.

The Power of Love in the Book of Life.

Love is the essential nutrient that nourishes the world to spin, to go round. Love is the fuel that ignites the motivation for doing things for others. Show them that you care, say you love them each day...

Love fuels and activates our most inner substances, which make us creative and worthwhile. Love is a very valuable asset, the basement, the foundation of great buildings, especially the building of our lives.

Jesus loved the world so much that He gave His own life, as a living sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins, as the ultimate act of unselfish love.

When you love, you don't hurt the ones you love. Don't stigmatize with the stiletto of words. You see, harsh words could cause mortal fears. Harsh words could really hurt, and cause a mortal blow in the depth of one's soul. Be nice with others, for you'll never know when one is undergoing hurdles, a hurtful heart, a low self-esteem, and needs kind words to sustain or support his/her spirit. So, don't be cruel!! Treat others the way you wish to be treated, and your golden rewards you'll collect in Heaven.

God will judge each of us at the end of times. Give away a touch of love, a slice of Heaven from your kind heart, so that you may heal or get healed by the power of your love.

Rejoice, be glad in this day that the Lord has given you!!

Love in Christ,
