We are Thankful

In memory of Gradnma I found no words to say but to read back to myself and to you these words from my book Comfort.

We are filled with gratitude,
For the time we enjoyed together,
The love we shared,
The memories we cherish,
Your smiles and encouraging words,
That pushed us into our destiny,
And made us stronger,
O what a precious gift you were;
We could not ask for anything more,
Than you have been to us.
When we think of the adorable you,
That we have loved so dearly,
Our grief and sorrow melts away,
We know you would rather have us smile,
Our hearts are thankful,
And overflow with peace and love,
We have joy and the hope,
That we will meet again.

On the verge

At the brink of something good getting ready to happen; life has taught me that all hell breaks loose and you begin to wonder why? Yet on the other hand I have also known that the kick of a dying horse isn't that bad at all if you think you are kicked but you are still breathing. I say this only to say life can give you a chance to quit but you choose not to quit because victory is for those that don't quit. I won't quit on the battles of life and I suggest that you make a pledge today that you will never quit. Even on you death bed you can still die a winner. So never, never quit; will you?

Memorial Day Special Poem

As we celebrate and remember the men and women who paid the price for our freedom let us not forget that the price was to high to pay but for us they laid down their lives; for us they lost their limbs and for us they gave themselves for an exchange for our freedom. We celebrate the men and women who were and are brave and courageous to pay the cost.

Veteran
Our hero has come home our defender
The one that paid the price for our freedom
We are joyful that she has come home
We can have a sweet reunion
She has played her part wholeheartedly
And saved her country with honor
With sacrifices that we may not understand,
We give our hearts for a medal of honor
He obeyed every command and subjected himself
Under authority so that he could save each one of us
He put his country first and endured the challenges
That he encountered in the service, he sacrificed himself,
He loved and gave himself to serve with humility.
I will stand for all of us, and say thank you.
We honor you for giving yourself to us,
You lost who you used to be just for us
We salute you mighty man for your courage,
We salute you mighty woman for your courage,
Valiantly you stood up for us
And defended our freedom and rights to be who we are,
“We are the land of the free. A home of the brave”
Because you gave yourself for us, we salute you
You bear the marks of service, we stand in ovation
For you and pray for you that you may heal,
So we can smile with you through all your days.

An Alert

THIS IS AN ALERT do not let anything dampen your spirit. Do not let any robber get a free ride from you because you are the best that God has created. Dare to succeed in every dimension. If you are a child have the courage to stand and not be bullied. If you are an adult stand and do not allow anything to make you fail because I know you are able to be anything you want to be. Please read this poem.

A Robber
I have been robed by the worst robber
That has existed since the fall of man
I thought I was careful my doors were shut
My windows were closed but this thief
Enters in while you are there and robs you
While you are there with your guards down
You will sign the consent form in your safe
You will powerlessly watch him rob you of everything
Beginning with that which matters most; your treasures
This old robber comes in like a beggar
Once you give him your attention you are in for it
He will deal with you and you will doubt yourself
Before you can put yourself back up
He will strip you naked and steal your sense of self
Making you an entertainer of destruction
If you have him with you long enough he will feed on you
You will be hurt enough to hate yourself
He will afflict you with pain and entice you to kill yourself
He is the worst robber of them all
His name is depression.

Let the joy of the Lord be your strength!!!!!!!

What I learned from my Pastor today Commitment

Being committed to the Lord, not wavering because a double minded man is unstable in all his ways and can not receive anything from the Lord. A commitment unto death not the vows of marriage that some take lightly. James and all the apostles had a death sentence in them and for sure they died and paid that price. To some Jesus did not commit himself to them because he knew what was in their hearts. I know what is in God's heart so I am able to commit to him. If he was a man perhaps I could be moved but I am committed to God and I die to myself.
I am in the army of the Lord if a soldier commits to the army he can not just turn around and walk out - it's commitment. Talk can be cheap when it comes to commitment but the question is,"Can you walk it?" For Daniel there was a commitment already in his heart, there was no room for him to defile himself. For the three Hebrew guys they had their commitment to the highest King and the commandment of Nebuchadnezzar did not shake them; they could not be moved and they refused to bow. When you are already dead, death or fire will not win over the dead. We know that he is able but if not we are not committed to his deliverance. If he heals me I am with him if he doesn't I am still with him whichever way I can not loose. Each time when you put his will above yours you know he will come through. I will praise him when I am up. I will praise him when I am down. I don't know how I will come out but I am committed. I can not be committed and not be blessed. When God picked Job for his trial it was Job's commitment that was proved. So, no matter what comes your way the Forth Man still gets in the fire and the same God that came through for Job will still come through for you. Dare to give your commitment promise to God today and decide never to turn back. Stay committed!

Making Crucial Decisions

While common sense is not common we can still have the access to be wiser. In decision making you want to count your cost, make up your mind, align your heart and spirit and be sure you know what you are committing yourself to. There are decisions that are so crucial, like following Jesus, you know once you begin you carry your cross and follow him no turning back, no matter what. Choosing that you don’t want to turn back before you get the opportunity to turn back will brace you up for the storm. Daniel 1v 8 “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank: therefore he requested of the prince of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself.” Daniel had purposed in his heart not to defile himself so when the opportunity came for him to drink wine he was reminded and knew he needed to ask for a special provision. He requested for it because his mind was already made up. His decision was not shaky. I believe we can have this flow to all our decision making process. Have an anchor where you can hold when the storm hits. I know sometimes life gets you to a place where you are faced with other people’s decisions and choices but if you decide, to purposely please God no matter what; you will get ahead in life without hurting yourself or a host of other people, your life will be graceful, filled with wisdom and excellence and you will be celebrated.

“Grace each day, with thanks”

I like Tuesday Morning it is a shop that does not lack surprises for me, out of mere habit it is a shop that I can spend some time just wondering around especially if I am looking for a unique gift. Today I saw a plaque written “Grace each day with thanks” I could not take it lightly, I stopped and held it in my hands and I bought it as I write I am looking at these in scripted words, “Grace each day, with thanks” this very moment is full of grace and I am thankful that in my weakest hour I have the grace that is sufficient for me to carry me through each day. I seek to make each day a master piece and savor the joy of every moment.
If I feel forgotten and discouraged I can just say grace and I will stay on track. If I feel I am in the worst place I can lift up my hands and say thank you Lord for your keeping power you are my stay. It feels like yesterday when I had surgery and I needed help to get up but this morning I am the one that took a walk. For ten months I was not working but it felt so good this morning to sleep in on my off day, I have a job and I am an author of two books it is grace that kept me each day. I had a broken marriage and I felt rejection piercing through might but today I wake up to a piece day with a heart that has forgiven all the hurt and aches that felt like I was dwelling in the pits of hell. I am healed and I am no longer ashamed to stand and say I love Jesus for him I live, move and have my being. I lost a loved one and felt deserted I could not even see a future without my loved one. It felt like I was split in two, grief and sorrow sat at the same table with me. Today I am happy, reflect on my memories and smile, I am still alive and hoping to make the most out of my days. I am gracefully and peaceful; I believe to see more goodness daily. I am thankful for a fresh breath every morning.
I know I have missed the mess. I was involved in what could be a fatal accident in the middle of the high way during a peak hour and I came out without a scratch. Through it all my mind is stable, you would think at some point it might be justified if I wake up in sane but it is always, “Grace each day, with thanks” there is no better way for me to say it but whatever is challenging you today know this in your heart of hearts you are coming out. The tough challenges you are facing may look like giants but you are going through; the challenges won’t last but you will. You are a winner, please don’t quit stay in your race and you will get a prize. Stick it out in the game of life and with grace and gratefulness you will come through at the end of the tunnel there is a land of light, laughter and victory on every side.

The Kingdom

I am happy to let you know that it is the Father's pleasure to give us the kingdom. Seeking first the kingdom of God is of paramount importance if you want to be a part of his jewels and the ones that will reign with him. Jesus came not only to forgive our sins and heal us but to give us the kingdom. We have to occupy till he comes. We practice to reign with him now. You know what; the kingdom is in you, you are royalty, that's why he commanded us to have dominion, replenish the earth and subdue it. Our faith is not some kind of weak believer in a corner but it is our strength and the very power that causes us to speak things that are not as though they are. Once we speak it our words will create it. The King has made us kings and priests unto our God. There we can stand in this office with power. We have received a kingdom that grows in us. Can you hide a mustard tree, no way! Thus, it is true that when the kingdom has grown in you; you can not by any chance hide it, but you will be a true representative of the kingdom. An ambassador appointed by heaven.

Creativity Nugget

As you know I have a passion of creativity and I like the madness of creativity. By the way in order to be creative you must see and think more than normal and then have the willingness to be different and definitely you must save up in your account the price that creativity demands. Creativity says if there must be a glory it must be so glorious that even the one that never thought they would have it will agree to have it and bow, not to you but to the source that brought it forth.

I like it when people say what inspired you? How do you come to that place to create? Unfortunately I can not write all the questions neither can I answer a few but I will say a few words. Creativity can only proceed from one source, in the spirit that rules within a man. The light or darkness will make the difference. The creativity that becomes awesome is from the spirit of the Almighty. The rest of man's work will last for a season. Both the one that was possessed and the work created will perish, thus we see so many falling stars. If all was done for the truth and beauty in God, his glory would shine and sustain even the feeblest among us. (Just some food for thought)

Forgotten Message

Can you imagine I forgot to post this important message I can't wait until next year I got to post it, too bad to be true but you can all have a good laugh like I am now. You got to laugh out loud first before you read it, ha ha ha...! There you go, keep smiling, there you go... you can read it now it is posted.

"I like this season of the year because it reminds me of the reason for the season. I will not embrace the Christmas gifts and forget the greatest gift the earth has ever been given. You see on the night he came, they did not create room for him, but today I can create room for him in my house and in my heart. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!"

That's the message I had forgotten to post can you imagine, I forgot to post a reminder, let's forget the writer now, just promise me that you won't forget to make room for Jesus both for Christmas and from day to day.

Forgotten Message

Take your Place

The sun shines on those who are standing before it shines on the people kneeling under them. “African Proverb”

Today is a great day as you look into the great doors of opportunity in 2010, determine to find your place of value and influence, then you can boldly take your stand early before others do. In winter in Zimbabwe when I was a kid I remember rushing out for break to find a spot for myself in the sunshine. The classes are not warm, there are no heating systems, even at present, so it is a matter of depending on your warm sweater if you have one or if you don’t, the break is like a fire place. So the position you take is crucial in order to get your piece of the sunshine pie and so is life. If you let others stand first before you do you might survive only in their shadows. And of course people that see opportunities first will get the best share. Don’t wait for June if you can do it today and of course the more you procrastinate the more you increase your speed to the City of Never. In plain language without action you will never get to your place and your dreams may not be realized. So in 2010 decide to stand and let the sunshine fall on you first.
Will you?
