Inspirational Poem

Life Still Has A Meaning

If there is a future there is time for mending,
Time to see your troubles coming to an ending.

Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow,
If you’re looking forward to a new tomorrow.

If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping,
When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping.

Though the heart be heavy and hurt you may be feeling,
If there is time for praying there is time for healing.

So if through your window there is a new day breaking,
Thank God for the promise, though mind and soul be aching.

If with harvest over there is grain enough for gleaning,
There is a new tomorrow and life still has meaning.

“Life is a bowl of cherries. Some cherries are rotten while others are good; its your job to throw out the rotten ones and forget about them while you enjoy eating the ones that are good! There are two kinds of people: those who choose to throw out the good cherries and wallow in all the rotten ones, and those who choose to throw out all the rotten ones and savor all the good ones.”

The Sun Will Shine

Dark clouds will not stay forever,
No matter how grey the sky may appear.
Dark clouds may linger but they will not last,
The sun will shine brightly removing all doubt.
A new dawn is coming, it fills the world with
new light.
A rainbow stretches forth across the blue sky,
A colorful canopy of blessings divine.
It serves as a reminder
that when the dark clouds vanish
the sun will still shine.

Life and Living


They say patience is a virtue and it is a wonderful thing to have. In life we sometimes come upon some trying times and we need patience in order to get by. Patience is important when things do not happen as quickly as we plan. Things happen in due season and there are some that we just cannot rush along.  When we encounter roadblocks in some situations all we can do is have patience. God has everything all planned and we cannot force His hands. Whatever is meant for us will happen all in due time but until it does we have to learn patience.

If Hope Should Die

If hope should die what would life be
But a sunken ship lost beneath the sea.
It would be like night without day,
Rain without sunshine and winter without spring,
If hope should die it would be
Like being alive without really living
And having an ending without a new beginning.
Hope is the fuel that feeds our soul
to reach for tomorrow and fulfill a new goal.
So hold on to hope when troubles come
With a hopeful heart, you will overcome.

Stop Abuse of Women

Let us Not Forget

Let us not forget the Nigerian girls
Lest if we do they be doomed
to a life of captivity.
Let us not forget that where tyranny reigns
There is heartache and pain
with life restrained
and little room for growth.
Let us not ignore the voices
of mothers weeping for their children.
Let us stand together
and fight for the freedom
of our daughters and our sisters.

Happy Birthday to Me


20140515_131717 (2)

As I celebrate this another birthday I just want to say;

Oh Lord I am so thankful
Each and every day
For loving me the way I am
Enough to gentle say

“My child I made you different
Than anyone else on earth,
So don’t compare your talents
With others to find worth.

“And when you fail or make mistakes,
I’m here to hold your hand,
To dust you off and dry your tears
And give you strength to stand.

“I have a plan and purpose
Designed for you alone.
My word will lead and guide you
Until I call you home.

“So do not be discouraged,
Have faith and trust in Me.
Abiding in My counsel,
I’ll meet you every need.
