concentration on theology and our divinity. February, 2021

$3.00

Thank you to all my readers. I appreciate your support and I wish everyone the best this year. As hard it is for some, or many, I have put this together to let some light come in. I wish people calm, when there is seemingly nothing; peace when there is anger; good health when there is a pandemic. Most importantly, Love when there is loss or hate. Let’s change this tide and come together, with respect and kind thoughts.

Perfect Love, Daughter on her 9th Birthday!!

1. You’re not one, Hun
2. No longer Two give me More!!
3. Then Three, which O gosh was the sweetest toddler talk with, “Some Ge, Me See, all too ME!”
4. Boom Four: God give me More —
5. Wow Five! I never felt so alive when I looked into your eyes and saw the girl who was no longer my two-year old babe barely walking, but a girl up and running and thriving!
6. I promise six, there was nothing I missed, nor could the awesomeness of your heart and love couldn’t fix—
7. Heaven, Seven: Your gorgeous star within was so alive all I could do was give my dear, Lord my gratitude and praise Him, with such a Holy, Holy, Amen.
8. Dear, Eight! Your spirit was a rainbow jet of light set to flight. There was no part of you that was out of my sight!
9. Boom, Boom, NINE! Our hearts are intertwined and you were born on a full moon and the greatness of your soul came through when there was moonshine.

I LOVE YOU, DAUGHTER

I did the research about my blog being tampered with, so I have the IP addresses and I will move forward to do my best to keep these offenders out of my blog. Because of this shift to everyone now online, it is getting more and more difficult to keep sites free of cybercrime and accountable.  I tried before and I learned it’s not that easy… perhaps now, people can understand why.

 

Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman, at the Inauguration of Joseph Biden

I LOVE THIS WOMAN!

I wanted to call attention to the question being asked at the beginning of this pack filled brilliant poem:: “Where can I find the light in this never ending shade…” and the poem moves on rhythmically until we get to the penultimate:
The new dawn blooms as we free it
There is always light if we only are brave enough to see it
and If we are only brave enough to be it.

Today’s mainstream poetry barely touches upon the integrity, vibrancy, hopefulness, insightfulness —a deep resounding call to rise for goodness, and intensity as this poem. I am so happy to see a poem like this at this time in history.

Just to note: I will mention that someone came into this post and made edits. It was sly because they were not show stoppers, but for me they were. I have a lot to learn about technology and I moving my energy into accountability, instead of creativity.

In Honor of Martin Luther King Jr.

I went out collecting
flowers from all places
like an urban mountain
and the longest highway.
A ten mile lotus pond
a gospel singing church
an old meeting hall
and the Pacific Ocean.

So we took some land
dug it for marble hedges
yet the most glorious
bloom and buds came when
the colors came together. 
With no fences or divides.
