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.

Patience

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.

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.

Life is Like a Cup of Coffee

Spiritual Story by Unknown

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups – porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite – telling them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: “If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups have been taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress.

Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality to the coffee. In most cases it is just more expensive and in some cases even hides what we drink. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups… And then you began eyeing each other’s cups.

Now consider this: Life is the coffee; the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not define, nor change the quality of life we live.

Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee. Savor the coffee, not the cups! The happiest people don’t have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

Stay Focus on Your Dreams

With all the madness and chaos going on in the world it is easy to become distracted. However it is important that you do not lose focus of the things that are important to you. Do not  get caught up in the hype or spent valuable time concentrating on the successes of others. You don’t know what they had to do to get to where they are. Do not set your goals based on the expectation of others or with the idea that you have to keep up with the Jones-es.

Do not put on false air or pretend to be someone you are not in the hopes of pleasing others. Remember that we all have issues and problems at one time or another. No one has the perfect life. At all times be yourself. Go after your goals with confidence and let no one make you feel inadequate. Focus not on riches instead pray for good health and happiness, in these days these are rare commodities. In all that you do stay focus and you will see those dreams come true.

Vanishing Dreams

She tries to keep herself afloat,
Her dreams took a nose dive and vanished.
Like a bird she went out on a limb,
But the limb got broken,
So did her wings.
Her shattered dreams were
Blown away and scattered.
So she faces the new day
Trying to find the pieces of
her broken dreams.
