My Mother’s Heart Poem [MF]

IMG_3342.JPG
Good Day, Beautiful People!
Is the second day of Spring in Southern Hemisphere. Is a new season, new things to accomplish, new exciting events awaiting ahead and new challenges for some of us to overcome.

Last week, my beautiful and creative friend, Mel and her sweet sister Jen, informed us the bad news of her mom limited days on earth. She is almost ready to step into glory and immigrate to her new permanent address. Is one part of life journey that we all find it difficult to cope. So please keep my friends, Mel’s and Jen’s family in your prayers. In the midst of the challenge, Mel, wrote this touching poem will simply bless you if you ever experience loss and grief.

“In light of my mum being sick and with other thoughts on my heart, I was inspired to write the poem below. God bless.” -Melinda Fletcher

I want to bring you glory Lord
I want to bring you praise
I want my life to matter Lord

In the end of days
I want to leave a legacy
That I loved you my lord
And when they say good bye to me
They’ll know I’m truly home

Home with God my Father
In heaven with my Lord
“Absent from the body
But present with The Lord”

So do not cry my darling
It won’t be very long
Till we see each other once again
When gathered at His throne

God will give you grace to live
Without me when I’m gone
So do not fret and do not fear
God will make you strong

My heart is crying for you
That you’ll miss me when I’m gone
But know I’m always with you
In spirit and in song

God is always faithful
And He has surely said
Because of what His Son has done
I will see you.. again
By Melinda Fletcher

Mel’s Latest Inspiration [MF]

 

20140715-152947-55787542.jpg

Hello Beautiful Friends who have been following my blog. It has been awhile since I last wrote.  June and July have been by far huge months with Hillsong Conference, hosting guests from overseas and interstate.  Five Birthdays Parties to attend, work and other commitment. My life is full and blessed. My creative friend, Melinda Fletcher was so inspired by Hillsong Conference 2014, as a result her new masterpiece is born.  Enjoy her latest poem.

 

In all that we’ve been through

And all that we’ve seen

In how far we’ve come from

where we have been

We’ve seen our God faithful

We’ve seen our God strong

Our lives ever grateful

In Him we belong

From glory to glory

He’s making us holy

Higher and higher

He’s raising us up

In life and in death

It will be our confession

With Jesus our saviour

The best is yet to come

He’s building his church to be stronger and stronger

He’s raising us up to bring glory to His’ name

United together

Forever we praise Him

higher and higher

We’re lifting Him up

In life and in death

It will be our confession

With Jesus our saviour

The best is yet to come!!!

Celebrate the life of Dr Maya Angelou (April 4, 1928 – May 28, 2014)

Good Day, Beautiful People!

May 28 2014,  the world has lost a legendary poet, author, teacher and warrior of peace, equality and tolerence, Dr Maya Angelou. Heaven gains a great heroine. Her writing has inspired and encouraged multitude in America and around the world. Even though she led a kaleidoscopic  life, her writings was so soulful, sensible and pragmatic. Good night, Dr Maya Angelou. You will always live in our hearts. One day, we will meet in heaven.

In case for some reason you are not familiar with her handiwork, you are in for more than just a treat. It is encouraging, empowering, powerful and life changing. Sharing some of my all time favourites, Dr Maya Angelou’s poems.

Still I Rise

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may tread me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Touched by Angel

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love’s light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

Phenomenal Woman

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman

Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me. 

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings

The free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wings
in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.

But a bird that stalks
down his narrow cage
can seldom see through
his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and
his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.

The caged bird sings
with fearful trill
of the things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom

The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn-bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.

But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

The caged bird sings
with a fearful trill
of things unknown
but longed for still
and his tune is heard
on the distant hill
for the caged bird
sings of freedom.

Below is a significant teeny portion of Dr Maya Angelou interview with Oprah Winfrey.


I will leave you with her last profound tweet, ” Listen to yourself and in that quietude you might hear the voice of God.” It is still resounding in my heart.

Good Day, Beautiful People!

Emailing  is one of  our modern days communication that we cannot live without. My love and hate of emails has been consistent since day one. I am one of those  people who constantly and laboriously delete emails,  empty junk, spam emails and block senders. Nevertheless, it is always welcoming to start or end my work day with lovely inspiring  and encouraging emails. Today is one of those good days.

My beloved supporters aka subscribers are now familiar with my beautiful and creative mate, Melinda Fletcher. Without fail, she regularly emails me and other friends her new piece of poem, work of genius. Well, sit back and enjoy.

1 John 4:17b; because as He is, so are we in this world.

I want to walk like you

I want to talk like you

I want to live this life

where I’m found in you

 

I want to seek your face

I want to live by faith

I want to know your ways

I want to run this race

 

I want to speak your word

I want to follow you

I want to know your truth

I want to love like you

 

And when you come again

I want to see your face

I want to worship you

Amazing grace!

– Melinda Fletcher
