The Cross.

FB_IMG_1458974666684

Two wooden logs.
In a shape of a “t”.
A man was nailed to it.
An innocent man was nailed to it.

This man was a carpenter.
Like every other man during that time.
Would you have believed him,
… when He said he was God’s Son?

He was mocked.
He was whipped and was being spat at.
They let him wear a crown of thorns.
That pierced through his skin.

Stabbed with a spear.
Imagine the pain He went through.
Can you?
Oh the agony!

But did you know…?
He did not die in vain.
He suffered and died for all our sins!
The sins.. that he did not do.

He’s the son of a carpenter.
He’s the Son of God.
He’s the coming King.
His name is JESUS.

He is coming soon….

x-default

The time is nigh, the time is near

The coming of the Lord is at hand

The day of redemption is coming close

We are all going home..

We who follow the Lord.

.

.

Each of us will be judged

According to what we have done

Great and small, we will stand before the throne.

If your name is not found in the Book of Life,

You will be thrown into the lake of fire.

.

.

The time is nigh, the end is near.

Haven’t you heard, haven’t you seen?

Earthquakes and famines, they beset us like plagues!

Wars and rumors of wars.

Praying and God interdict to be mentioned.

Aren’t we told to make HIM known?

.

.

“I am coming, I am coming back.”

I am coming back soon, Jesus said that.

I will be ready. I have to be ready.

For I know, He will come like a thief in the night.

….but nobody knows when….

.

.

Better be prepared.

The time is nigh, the time is near.

The end is coming.

Come Lord Jesus! Come quickly!

My Mother and My Grandmother

stock-vector-russian-dolls-daughter-mother-grandmother-83141608

GRANDMOTHER.

I grew up learning my do’s and don’ts with my Grandmother.

Though living with her may seem like hell during my adolescent years,

..because of her strictly-straight-arrow-spanish-blood-attitude,

I grew up living with only 2 rules.

Either you be straight as a fiddle or be broken into pieces,

Your choice!

Grandma may be strict but with so much love.

Grandma’s words may hurt but a challenge was always welcomed.

She may see a blooming heart but never stopped teaching when I think I’m good enough!

She wanted everything to be perfect, just like the way she was.

If you love yourself, she said, you always try to perfect your ways.

If you respect yourself, you learn to respect others and in return respect is given back.

Grandma loved to cook. I hated it when I was small.

I always stayed home to assist her when everybody in the family would go out and have fun.

She would always ask for me, to stay and help.

I resented it.

But little did I know that inside me is a growing-Chef that wanted to learn more!

I miss her cooking, I miss the scrumptious food, I miss assisting her.

Now I’m all grown up and have a family of my own,

I found out that my life is to cook!

My first love is cooking and my 2nd love is writing!

I never knew that all my resentments during those time were all to let me become what I am now.

A doting mother like she was, can never sleep when her children were sick.

A loving mother who disciplines and lets you get it when you’re not on the right track!

This is what I’ve learned from you MommyBaby.

Which I aptly follow through with my son.

“Either you be straight as a fiddle or be broken into pieces!”

So far so good, I will never be like you because MommyBaby is mommyBaby!

If there was one thing I could able myself like you..it’s how you cook!

I will always miss you Mommy, and I love you!

MOTHER.

Though at times I could never fathom the way you do what you do.

Even if it hurts you, you still strive and struggle just to provide..

The needs of your children.

There may be times that I forget to say thank you,

..because for some reason we have fought over those things.

We may agree to disagree but you would always win.

You never say you were too tired, or your arms and back ache

..to do the laundry or wash the dishes, that’s after work..

You never make me help though, you just make me wipe the water off the plates and hang the clothes to dry off.

We may never have been that close then but I can feel your love…so much more now.

You can’t stand to see us in pain,

You can’t stand to see us hurt- physically or emotionally.

Sometimes we may not hear you say you love us – outrightly

But your actions are so strong that words cannot describe it!

Your sacrifices for us are stronger than anything in this world.

Mama, there is nothing in this world that I would rather be

To be with you is all I ask.

I promise you when the time comes that I will take care of you, to love you and to provide you more than you need.

I’m happy that I’ve become strong .. and stronger I will be because..

Of 2 great women in my life.

My Mother and My Grandmother.

The Fruit of the Spirit

imagesLOVE.

What can be more challenging
Than loving somebody who hates you?
But wouldn’t it be more fun and exciting,
To drive by and throw rocks at that person
Then shout…”it’s because I love you!”
If only. …but No.

JOY.

It’s a crazy world out there.
Death gets hold of a member in the family.
The minister says, “isn’t it a joy to celebrate death?”
If you don’t get it, you somehow like to strike the minister.
..but if you do get it…
“To be born twice, is to die only once.”
“To be born once is to die twice.”
Think wisely.

PEACE.

Where is peace, when I’m hungry?
Where is peace, when I’m penniless?
Why can’t I have peace?
So much I tried but I can’t seem to make it stay.
*Give up everything and go find your peace.
The Lord says, “the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace.”
Let meekness reside in you.

LONGSUFFERING.

Do I need to?
Haven’t I suffered enough?
Do I need to undergo this battle?
Do I have to curse people just to prove my point?
That I am right and you are all wrong?
Imagine yourself sitting there and doing nothing.
Seeing Jesus dying on the cross,
Being spat at and crowned with thorns.
Do you think you have the right to live a lavish life after all you’ve done?
Give it all up then you can shorten your Long-longsuffering into just “longsuffering!”

KINDNESS.

Be kind to one another.
Helping. Sharing.
Understanding. Caring. Sharing.
Too much of yourself to your neighbors house is annoying.
Too much of your asking is annoying and begets self-demeaning.
On the contrary, love without sharing is not worth anything.
..but you also cannot share without loving.
Kindness is to give all you’ve got,
What is yours is mine-remind me every pay day!

GOODNESS.

Do you believe in good things?
Even if you think you don’t deserve it?
What do you deserve then?
A lashing? A hundred times lashing perhaps?
But No.
You deserve all the goodness in the world.
Though a legion of bad on top of your head,
You still deserve goodness.
HE created you. You deserve to live life.
But its your choice how you live your life!

FAITHFULNESS.

O you of little faith!
You keep your faith inside your underpants!
O you of little faith!
You shame yourself because of your obscenities!
Your unfaithfulness leads to your disobedience!
….but though your sins may be as red as scarlet,
Our forgiving God will blot out all your inequities as once He did with mine.

GENTLENESS.

Neither harsh nor violent
In words and in deeds
Soft and delicate are your ways
Your tender ways are all kind and amiable.
You will be loved, you will be longed.
Instead you flock yourself with people who entice you
With everything that’s just wrong!

SELF-CONTROL

AAAAAAAARGGGGH!!!
…..But No.

God will not give you the fruit of the spirit at an instant when you ask for it.
Instead He gives you situations where you are able to learn it within yourself!

Overcome

I have overcome hatred with Love.
I have overcome impatience with Understanding.
I have overcome pain with Unselfishness, knowing how my God endured it.

I do not consider myself righteous when I tell you to change.

Though you know which path to take,
You let everyday life suck you dry…
With envy, selfishness, lies and being a hypocrite is what boils down inside.

I’ve been on that road once, twice, three times in this life time.

I have marked my way of life through my victories and failures.
Failures have made me better than my victories.
Have you thought of betterness or bitterness in your failures?

What could God be telling you?

And true friends might come and go in your life time.
One truest friend stays forever.
A true friend may tell you of your faults, but with love and tenderness.
A fair-weather friend may tell you of your faults just for the goal of hurting you.
If you are a true friend you’d not think otherwise but accept what a friend sees in you.

…..and change for the better.

Learn to accept,
Learn to be true,
Learn the ways what God is teaching you to do.
Do not be a hypocrite when you seem to serve the Lord,
…but your heart is not into it.
It will be like burning coals on your head.

Walk in the ways of the Lord,
I’m walking mine….
…but have you?

Forever, I’ll hold my peace.

sad to be with you.. sadder to be without you.

I made mistakes
Mistakes that could ruin a reputation
..mistakes that could change a perspective
..mistakes that would turn joy into grief
I don’t deny it.

I acted
Both will and determination
..to prove that I can be accepted
..to prove that I am important
It feels good to be special.

I loved
Fell out of love
..people that don’t mean anything
..people that just come and go
Still empty, and worse when they’re gone.

I needed you
Where were you
..when my life was at its peak
..when my life was at its lowest
You should have known my secrets.

Into my place of comfort
I dwell alone
..never will you understand
..never will I let you know
In Forever, I will hold my peace.

I live, I love and I cry.

Pain inside my heart…
Will this ever end tonight..?

When your heart stops beating and rests from all the pain
