I Miss You (Forgotten Joy)

star gazing

 

As the trees retire their leaves

The yellow orb only makes me

wish I had more shelter

I miss you

 

The spur-of-the-moment laughter

The unfiltered words spoken

Gratefulness is taken for granted

It doesn’t matter how many times

the two hands spin around

My garden is full

But you aren’t there

I miss you

 

My heart keeps ticking

I wonder what kind of activity

is in your heart

I miss you

 

I see the shape of your head in my mind

Is your heart bigger since you have known me?

Do I have to say it again?

I miss you

I am Soaring in the Air (Am I Going to Fly or Fall?)

9BFEDB52-E626-4CB2-8F9F-8CC23B6B346D.jpeg

 

I am soaring in the air
Am I gonna fly or fall?
This heart of mine is an overhaul

I just want to fly
I don’t want to think about why I’m alive
I just want to be with I

Because when I fly the wide skies
I don’t want to think about it
When I feel the world’s lies
And fall into its disguise

I know that life is short
And I don’t want to think about death
Life is precious with its grime and dirt
And if I die now it will hurt

Growth is a porcelain vased plant
Slowly spreading its greenery
Adapting while others say I can’t

I just want to fly
I don’t want to think about why I’m alive
I just want to be with I

God, the Alpha and Omega

god alpha and omega

Poem:

The universe created itself from nothing

Then consciousness moving in and transcending all barriers and lines

Where is God in this midst?

He is the Alpha and the Omega, blocking the shadows of darkness with the light that shines

 

Prayer:

Dear Lord,

We praise you for being the Alpha and Omega. The beginning and end. Remind us that all goodness in us comes from You. Help us to be more lovingly and patient with each other. We live in a very fast-paced world and we forget sometimes how to love. Teach us what’s important and let go of what doesn’t matter. You have the whole world in Your hands and we can learn divine order if we give control up to You. Bless us and shower us with your presence today, Lord.

Amen.

Please share your thoughts with me. Isn’t amazing how God is the beginning and the end of all that is?

 

Destiny’s Knockin’ On Your Door (Let Go)

BDA25DEC-9C04-49E9-ACC6-F040B5DB98C8

 

Life’s ups and downs

Can make you feel sick

Like a roller coaster ride

You question where does your love confide?

 

You travel some many places in your brain

Your heart has been through a blender

Do I hold on to what’s already gone?

Or let go and surrender?

 

See, in this life the choice is yours

Everything is a choice

From dusk to dawn

Is your light within turned on?

 

Does your light within really shine?

Shine like a welcoming revelation?

Beckoning with perspective

Leaving you with clear hope, no hesitation

 

For if all these things really ring true

Destiny’s knockin’ on your door

It’s time to let go

Sometimes when I am in prayer

 

I feel like no one’s there

I am talking to the ceiling

Sometimes I am lost in a deep spiritual feeling

 

I sense a powerful presence of some sort

I stop focusing on my personal hurt

I start to pray for others

And nations filled with sisters and brothers

 

I am not saying I am always selfless

I can be pretty selfish at times, I confess

But I believe it’s important to take time away from self

 

To pray for others who need help

Because destiny’s knockin’ on your door

It’s time to let go

God’s Beautiful and Complete Design

peacock

The rushing wind

Begins to ascend

Into my curly hair

Waving to and fro

As the sun lightly touches my skin

Like a big warm yellow kiss

 

Nature is wonderfully regulated and defined

By God’s design

By His elegant and delicate system

 

If you believe we got here through evolution

Or the big bang

Please use your intuition

God is the inventor behind it all

 

Just look at peacocks with their magnificent color array

Or a swan gracefully as she may

It’s a part of God’s beautiful and complete design

World Shifting

 

king-and-queen1

 

The world is going through a shift

God is taking us through a sift

Now it’s not the time for fear

But submit to God in prayer

 

Some many things steal our attention from our first love

We can’t give the devil anymore permission

The devil service comes for you and me

But we can destroy his works with the holy dove

 

Joel 2 is coming to body of Christ

Because of the Jesus’s paid price

The devil service doesn’t want us to stand

As king and queens, hand in hand

 

Reject the lies of the evil one

That you aren’t loved, unconditionally

That you aren’t royalty unto the Most High

Because one day we will shine like the Son

We Are Highly Evolved Creatures (The Light Upon My Feet)

light-forest

There is chaos in the wind
I want to know if you are my friend
But I ask you, your head turns
If a monkey comes to me and says I evolved from him
I will steal a bannana from him
I want to hold you close
And I want you to hold my heart
And tell me we will never partI can’t live today
Because on the news today they said the world is going to end tomorrow
I can’t live tomorrow
Because I probably won’t be here

We are highly evolved creatures
Some much is going on
Some much we want to know
We are like inch-worms moving one step at a time on the concrete
I would think since we are highly evolved creatures we could live for today
But we have a hard time looking forward to see where our feet are planted
Everything in this life we take for granted
Anytime our sparkle goes away in our hands, we get scared

God promises light on my feet
Not a crystal ball in the future

A Little TLC Does One Good

alone-time

Who are we? The question is whether or not we can accept who we are not: and therefore then able to accept who we are. The enemy always whispers in our ears that we are not good enough. We aren’t smart, good-looking, creative enough, etc. How do we silence those intense voices? You may ask.

I don’t have a manual called, “Steps to Silence the Dark Voices in Your Head.” But I do have some encouragement for you. We all make mistakes. We can lust over things we shouldn’t have. We can spend too much money on things or spend so much time on not feeling good enough for God, ourselves or others. We do this because we have a God-shaped hope that only He can feel.

Struggling makes us stronger. Sometimes we have to hit rock button to start looking upwards. We are in this life to learn patience, grace and mercy. We can be a blessing to others or they can be a blessing to us. But sometimes the blessing comes in a package. We don’t know what the contents hold and we get a paper cut looking before it’s ready to be open. But inside is hope, faith, love and opportunity.

I remember a time when I worked at a movie theater. I would do theater checks. And I have seen people asleep after the movie was already over. Or a guy fell down we had to help up. Or a person puked that we had to clean up.

The movie represents our lives. How many times do we sleep during the climax of the movie (or our lives)? Or we get sick and puke during the growing pains of life? Or feel clumsy and slip during a challenging time? There is no judgement. Just smile and realize that you are human and are learning.

One of my favorite quotes is by John Lennon, “Life happens when you are busy making other plans.” How true is this!

Don’t think too much. Don’t smoke too much. Don’t drink too much. But most importantly, don’t stop loving yourself. You aren’t selfish by loving yourself first. The captain of the ship has to make sure he is healthy before he mans the ship. What if he had pneumonia and he decided to still wants to guide a ship? Pneumonia actually can be contagious. So he would risk getting others sick and if the ship was sailing during a storm, would he have enough strength to control that ship?

I have had pneumonia before. You have no energy, which in return causes stress and a cloudy mind. A captain with pneumonia should call in sick that day.

I am not saying any time you are emotional not feeling well you should call in sick. I am not. But similarly to the captain, be patient with yourself and take the necessary measures for balance and peace in your life.

You may skip lunch with a good friend for a little TLC and go walk in the park with your thoughts and God. There’s nothing wrong with this. If you have a true friend, they will understand. But I would do this with caution until you know the person well or they could possibly think that you are blowing them off.

I wish as a society we could tell an acquaintance that we need a little TLC and they would not take it personally. I believe we are growing as a human race with more awareness and compassion in that area.

Stay blessed and loved and don’t forget to take care of yourself first to facilitate wellness and peace in your life.

Do you take enough alone for yourself? Please let me know what you think. Is there a such thing as too much alone time?
