she collects your tears
washes away the blues
she sings you lullaby
sends sweetness to your dreams
she gives you rest
mends your broken heart
I know God is faithful and yet I still doubt.
Jacaranda blooms in spring gloriously on this patch of the earth.
In late Springs, I enjoy strolling down the street where they are all lining up and yearning each other. Romantic poems written about the magnificent jacaranda.
Yet, my inclination to jacaranda is God comes through by illustration of its splendour Spring after Spring overcame the nakedness in Winters.
“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they toil not, neither do they spin.”
God IS Faithful!
There you stood
I had wandered for a long time
finally I came back
There you are
standing tall and strong
riches in springs
sheltering in summers
splendid in autumns
withered in winters
watching over me
When I fix my gaze to you
I finally found
the centre of my world
“Hope never fails”
Giving is a blessing. Receiving is also a blessing.
In my line of work, I walk alongside people to support them achieve their career goals. It is a satisfying thing to do because I get the opportunity to use my knowledge, skills and natural strengths to bless people come to my path.
In a workshop I deliver regularly, I ask the participants ‘What is your dream job?’. I share with them my dream job is being a writer and living on a farm growing my own vegetables. I shared that in each of the workshop I have delivered.
The moment of inspiration came from a recent workshop I delivered. One of the participants is also one of those special people God put on my path. She is like a blooming rose from day one I met her. Her passion, her cheerful nature, her insight and her determination inspired me. Walking alongside her to see this rose from a rose bud to her glory is something rewarding and appreciated with amazement.
After the workshop. She sent me a lovely email which brought me to tears. She researched a college course that will help me kick off my writing so I will be on my way to achieve my dream as a writer. Her encouraging words moved me to write. I started to write, just putting words on paper. It’s about me go on a journey to fulfill my dream. It is not about others’ approval. I write is because all these emotions, feelings, encounters, moments oozing out of my mind to make sense of the world around me.
That’s how this blog came to existence. It is that simple. I received a blessing from a blooming rose. ” Hope never fails.”
In life, there are moments I want to capture. Be an inspirational, a feeling, a thought, a description of an event, a tiny ponder, I want to record them and share. These pieces come together reflecting vividly my life and the people I have the privilege to walk alongside.
