Aspartame

IMG_3142

The chemicals components being changed in a lab
Created for mass production and consumption
Aspartame, the number 1 killer in our world
Aspartame, it will hook you before you can say no

I am product of my society
I drink Diet Coke and I get all stressed out
I could take aspartame and get cancer
If it can does this to a grown adult
What can it do to a child in a womb?

It can cause autism and other development disorders
You know, we can keep going to our day jobs
But we will still be a part of our society

You yell at me for throwing fits
And being too hyper focused
And being too anxious
But I am just a product of a society that you created for me before I came

I never asked to be born
I never asked for autism
And I certainly never asked for aspartame
But I am just a product of my society

Expansive Hearts and Skies

Creativity beckons us to answer the call of our soul. There is a heart on a door and and door in the sky. We have to open the door to affection and enlightenment. And when you open to the door you will find more hearts or a more expansive colorful skies. Creativity never ceases.

Walk with your head held high. You will unlock these doors with your mind. It isn’t mind control but action with precise precision, wit, and self-control.

By unlocking these doors you unlock the door to your destiny. Your destiny yields to your actions. And a heart of surrender and a honest mind. Now take the steps to open the door… the door of your soul.

Consciousness Breathing Life

The universe created itself from nothing

Then consciousness moving in, moving out, transcending all barriers and lines

Where is God in this midst?

He is the Alpha and the Omega, creating shadows of darkness with the light that shines

 

Please share your thoughts with me. Isn’t amazing how God is the beginning and the end of everything?

 

Firefly

IMG_3135.JPG

Fireflies caught in a mason jar
Beautiful light feeling trapped
Where does the energy of love go?
Will the person let the firefly leave

I have traveled to and far
I have felt my hope snapped
This magnificent universe has flow
But still I desire for more and grieve

I want to fly to the clouds
Where love knows no bounds
But like the firefly, there no sound
When will my destiny be found?

Ruling Walking

mountains shine

I know it’s an absolute

We all come from a sinful root

Preacher you say on the pulpit

As we all sit

That we all should lose our wit

 

I know I can be selfish and greedy

I can be doubtful and needy

And prideful and seedy

I know we are sinners

But what about being winners?

We are God’s sons and daughters

We should get out of this deep waters

The devil knows the more Christians hang on to their past identity

He has got in the bag indefinitely

 

It’s time we stand up

Even though our nature is corrupt

But we must remember we are sanctified in Jesus

You know the devil is stormin’

When he hears a false guilt sermon

No, all sermons aren’t always perfect and complete

But we should focus more on the Holy Spirit to lead us

And on how will reign with Christ and have a heavenly seat

This isn’t pride talking

It’s ruling walking

Thoughts Inspired By A Song

wisdom quotes

 

There is this Finnish band called Puny (they aren’t Puny at all) and they write beautiful, thought-provoking songs. Here is a sample from their song: “Questions:”

“If I had knew all the answers to questions I ask myself. If I had all the power, would I still change a thing?”

Those are powerful sentences right there. Don’t we wish we had all the answers, if we could? But what if we had the answers and had the ability to stop our pain, would we? What if our pain is merely a learning lesson for each individual and others? I know God’s original plan was a world without pain and sin. But the Bible says in Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” (NIV). And Matthew 5:6 says, “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.” (NIV).

Think about these made-up scenarios: if you didn’t fall and scrap your knee on your skateboard as a kid you became less afraid of falling again, so when you competed professionally you were more courageous than before doing the japan airs and backflips. Eventually, you won 1st place on year.

Here is a more intense scenario: You were dying from cancer but you learned the faithfulness and goodness of other supportive humans through their acts of kindness and time. Maybe you taught others not to fear death because of your faith in God.

I believe all of our lives are interwoven and how they are all connected will be revealed to us one day. Stay strong. I know I am always optimistic but how else would you like to live? 🙂

The Universe

the-universe

I tried to be someone else
It brought me no resolution
I tried to be the latest slogan
The answer lies within yourself
That will get the river flowin’

I ate my problems away
It brought me no comfort
I tried to be the latest fad
The answer lies within
So, give it all you have

The universe is intricate
So am I
We are all people, special
Will you that help you sleep?
Or not internally wrestle?

We were knit in our mother’ womb
We were made of stars
We were made from dust
A sweet fragrance to the universe
Imperfect, but beautifully robust

The universe is good
I believe that with all my being
I look forward to Heaven all my heart
But the new Earth will become our permeant home
And a new universe humming with ingenuity and art
Thank you, Lord

God is the Ultimate Creator

hands-with-plant

Here is a non-fiction piece I wrote. I typically just write poetry on this blog but I am trying expand my horizons. I hope you enjoy this and I welcome any comments or feedback. 🙂

 

Lord, I love You. You are the Creator of Everything. Everyone knows You created the birds and the bees. But what about the sonic sounds in the air or the ultraviolet light? I am forever mesmerized and captured by Your infinite mind and grace.

Everyone knows there are 7 billon people on the planet, but did you know there are more who ever existed than are on the Earth now? Science estimates that 107 people who ever lived. There are 15 dead people for every living person. (Credit: http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-16870579.) Wow! The Bible says in Ephesians 1:4-6, “Even as He chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us for adoption to Himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of His will, to the praise of His glorious grace, with which He has blessed us in the Beloved.” (ESV).

We can give Him our love, because He understands us. I believe He is a good God. Supposedly, an evil supreme being could create so many people for their own glory! This wretched creator wants them to worship him only! While God does intend for us to worship Him to glorify Him, He keeps our best interests at heart. On the other hand, an evil creator would want worship and not care about the details of our lives like our Lord Jesus does. There are tons of relationships in the world that are based on vanity and selfishness. People who care too much about their reputation and not the other person’s feelings. God is a wise God. And wisdom includes maturity. While humans are still learning how to be sincere to others through honesty, openness, setting boundaries, etc. It takes time, energy, and patient. God has endless supply of those qualities! We are frail human beings, continuously growing. But we serve a compassionate, slow to anger Father!

 

Give Him the glory today!

 

Let’s say this prayer together:

Dear Lord, I love You. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. Please help to remind me that everything You do is for our good in mind. I want to love You more and give You everything. It’s by surrendering everything to You that I am completely alive. I love You, Lord and thanks again for all things. 🙂

Amen.

Two Love Birds

IMG_3107

Two of my friends, Eric and Carly are really in love. Carly wanted me to write me her a poem and I thought I would write one about how completely in love they are. 😍❤️

Here it is:

There are two love birds in town
It’s Carly who is in a beautiful Cinderella gown
While Eric is looking sharp
With his suit and tie
He’s like Cupid with a harp
Oh, they are so in love

Carly makes unique dolls
While Eric is mixing music inside his walls
They are a complete match
Made in Heaven
Carly, you should be forever grateful of your catch
Oh, you guys are perfect for each other

Love is a unique reality
It’s commitment can feel like a finality
But you know it’s so worth it
Love is a special treasure
Carly and Eric, unearth it
It’s something you’ll never regret

Here is some advice, for you two
Never forget to have patience where it’s due
Never forget to love against all odds
It will be hard at times, I can assure this
But focus on Jesus, the God above all gods
And you surely goodness and love will follow you always

Shel Silverstein

 

sidewalk ends

 

I don’t get you

And you don’t get me

It’s ok

Around and around we go

 

Shel Silverstein knows where the sidewalk ends

And that’s where we begin

 

I am right-brained

You aren’t the creative type

I can’t solve complex equations

It’s ok

Around and around we go

 

Shel Silverstein knows where the sidewalk ends

And that’s where the math meets the inspiration

 

I always seem to lose my cool

But you are as a cool as cucumber

Around and around we go

 

Shel Silverstein knows where the sidewalk ends

And that’s where peace comes to me against all odds

 

The wind is like spearmint

Where the daisies grow in the pavement

Around and around we go

Shel Silverstein is genius

Every poem can  be a song

Every song can be a poem

Let’s sing together

While around and around we go

(The wind and daisies lines have elements by Shel Silverstein’s poem: Where the Sidewalk Ends)
