The Walk

She sashays, she sways
Head high, no lye
They stare, at her hair
She cares less, for their guess

She sashays, she sways
One step, no misstep
Determined, to be awakened
Life anew, as she grew

She sashays, she sways
His providence, her new confidence
Just as she is, that is His biz
The Creator’s translator

She sashays, she sways
Head high, as they come nigh
They wonder, at her personality
She ponders, it’s a mentality

She sashays, she sways
Slight grin on her face
She is here to stay
Within His grace

Back to the basics

I've been reminded again of what my life's focus has been these past few years. Ever heard of the saying "the will of God will never take You where the grace of God will not protect you"? What does it really mean to be in the will of God. We always pray "Your will be done on earth..." but do we ever mean it in that sense?

I think most people are usually hung up on the notion that surely their will is their God's will and ofcourse He wants for them whatever they want. Some of my favorite verses in the Bible include the part where Jesus was praying in the garden of Gethsemane before the betrayal and crucifixion. In Luke 22:42 he asked his father if this intended fate could be taken away from him but the most amazing part is that he prayed "not my will but Yours be done". Aren't you glad he let the father's will be done? Otherwise you and I know that our salvation will for sure not have been complete!

I have been so put off lately by the kind of prosperity preaching and inspirational mantras thrown around by preachers lately. Some of them make it seem like if you go through a difficulty in this life then God has failed you. Seriously! When are we going to return to our manual for life (mine's the Bible) and realize that His grace is sufficient for us and in times of difficulty we can proudly say with conviction "I know it seems like my whole world is crumbling right now, yet Your will be done?" Even if I don't see any positives right now, yet will I praise You because it's in Your will for me to be in this moment, right now.

Just wondering if you have thought about His Will and if you are in His will at all.

Feline Life

I was reading a book (The Ambler Warning- Robert Ludlum) and came accross the saying "Curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought her back". Now that just made my smile very broad indeed!

Alright people, time of the year to make sure you're feeling your TATAS for lumps and bumps before you leave home with them pumped up! I know to some of you this is quite a foreign notion but if you don't know what to look out for, how can you know if there's something that's not supposed to be there? Go ahead and take care of them boobies :) Get curious about them and you might end up saving your life!

Let's Eat Cake

Another year is here
Haven't even thought about eating cake
I want some anti-aging eye cream
And perhaps a botox injection or two
Trying to slow down this process
Maybe I'll give Priscilla Presley some competition
But really what good will those do me?
If some soul searching has not taken place...
Have I lived the year as best as I could
Did I give of myself as much as I could
Deep thoughts and prvocative questions
Hmm... I'll by all means have some cake :)
