It’s been a while and I am sorry I have not been blogging at all recently. Work has been really busy, among other things, but getting all of said tasks within and without the context of work for now helps! I resolve, thus, to blog more regularly and hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas! So long as we don’t forget the Reason for the Season, all should be well. Truthfully, the month or so that I ended up taking off from blogging and such has changed much, but I am back now and a more mature person for it, I think.
That said, how were your Christmas Days and how will you celebrate the remaining eleven days of the season? Let me know! Thanks!
I hope you’re having a blessed weekend so far! In case you didn’t already know, my native language is English of the Standard American dialect, but I am also fluent in French of the Standard Parisian dialect and know some French of the Quebecer dialect as well. That said, I thought I’d share something I wrote in French the day before Thanksgiving:
La vie instable, c’est une leçon pour moi
‘A faire la confiance en Dieu pour ma vie et mon âme/
Il me connait le mieux, je suis qu’Il est Dieu……
(This unstable life is a lesson for me
To trust in God for my life and my soul
He knows me best, I know He is God….)
It is a work in progress, but I will try to write more in the coming week and update the poem as I am able. Out of curiosity, as well, do you any of you dabble in creative writing? If so, do you write poetry, song lyrics, music, novels, short stories, serials, et cetera? Let me know. I’d be interested in reading more about you as well as sharing my heart with you and allowing my life to be an expression of the living God. Praise Him, I get to do that because He died on the cross for me and rose again, atoning for my sins in my place and rising again to show He is Who He says He is!!!
That said, I welcome any and all comments as long as they are clean, civil, and constructive. Thanks!
Sorry I am a bit late on the posting again. This poem came to me kind of suddenly when I was pondering what to write and it took a bit of editing to make it clearer and, consequently, more easily readable. Let me know what you think when you get the chance. Thanks!
But first, some notes are in order:
* Unless otherwise noted, all Scripture is taken from the New King James Version translation of the Bible.
+ Philippians 3:7
++ Matthew 5:3
+++ Jesus says “do not be afraid” many, many times in Scripture. There are so many times that the exact phrase appears in the Bible that listing them all would take hours. I leave you with this link and hope it will suffice, then!!
Just so y’all know, I am committed to a prior obligation tonight, so will not post any writing tonight but promise to do so tomorrow! In the meantime, please check out the link that follows and comment on my most recent videos, please. Your feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
As promised, I am writng some today/tonight and it is about midnight (12:00 a.m./0:00 EST/GMT -5/UTC -5) as promised. So, here’s a spoken word poem which I am writing as it is so far (bear with me, as it came to mind and I rethought it some over the course of a few hours. I have also done some editing as of the initial publication of this post.):
My life is so full of confusion, chaos, and complication,
That so often I forget to look up and see the Reason
That I have a life -yes, that I have an existence-
By the grace of God alone I am counted among the livin’!
Both spiritually and physically I am counted as blessed
For my God, my Jesus, is my righteousness,
And the reason I live this life is solely for Him
That nothing else will matter but His glory in the end.
LIke my life, this poem is a God-given work in progress, so expect more later and bear that I am fallible, like anyone else, in mind if and/or when you comment. That said, I welcome your feedback of any kind (positive, negative, neutral, a mix of any of the aforementioned types of feedback) so long as it is clean, civil, and constructive. Thank you and God Bless you!
