God Will Wipe Away Our Tears

Revelation 21:4, is relevant to our world today, in our current and immediate set of circumstances. Speaking in epochs, scripture verses holding so much mystery are timeless and contain unique answers for any time of day.

On this day 31 December 2020, let us pray the Revelation 21:4 prayer, together we cry out with the saints in heaven.

What a day of rejoicing this shall be. There is an air of jubilancy, there is so much promise, God is faithful, God is putting a new song in our hearts, focussing on the divine attributes of Jesus, – faith, hope, love, courage, humility, forgiveness, compassion, wisdom, persistence, honesty, generosity, hospitality, patience and gratitude……with great feelings of hope and expectancy, we are getting through this.

Blessed 31 December 2020…..enjoy the rest of your evening.

These days

I don’t know about you, but I feel how ill the world is. Can we really be given sight at this stage how effective the vaccine is. We are sitting here in the third and second world watching the potential roll-out of the oxford vaccine. Can you imagine us watching the world return to normal, or lets say the UK at least live over the next couple of months as the tide of the virus is drained. What a day of rejoicing that will be.

As I see it, the oxford vaccine is a glorified treatment, like a flu injection and essentially I don’t see any problem with that. Let’s hit the ground running, the vaccines mean nothing sitting there in viles, let’s get the people immunized and see what the future holds. Scientists have been working around the clock indeed a race against time to save lives. It may be too late for many in my country, people are falling ill like flies and the cheapest vaccine for us is only in sight for April 2021. We pretty use to this grading and arrangement of goods and services, but quite honestly I’m exhausted with the deep levels of discussions even if they are necessary, but fearfully my brain cannot take the to and fro anymore. How many more questions need to be asked, the anti-vacciners will have their day in court, in the meantime let us get going with the roll-out.

Here๐Ÿฅ‚ to better days.

This is Our Plight

for tonight.

ESKOM ANNOUNCES OVERNIGHT STAGE 2 LOAD SHEDDING. I’m somewhat annoyed when the newspaper doesn’t pay attention to detail, which is more important than the headline or title of the article.

Yes loadshedding starts at 20.00hrs in my area and not 22hrs as mentioned in the article. Yes loadshedding for my area till 22.00hrs.

https://ewn.co.za/2020/12/29/eskom-announces-stage-2-load-shedding-overnight/amp

and yes we are in lockdown level 3. There is a total ban on the sale of alcohol. This ban comes in the fire of our risky behaviour. We have serious problems with regard to obedience. We are abhorrent of rules, even those rules that serve our best interest. As a country we are a house of terror when it comes to the consumption of alcohol.

Yes we have a curfew from 9.00pm till 6.00am. And yes we will be criminalsed if we don’t wear a mask in public places. There will be no super spreader events after 8.0pm, all bars, taverns and clubs will go into lockdown at that time. Please pray for us. We are in for a rough ride, the innocent, the pure and the vulnerable will suffer. We have a huge behavioural problem with maturity and remaining in that state of maturity in a time of crisis.

Yes, please pray for us, honestly and sincerely.

I thank you ben Alexander for teaching me how to use the second and fourth line as the first and third line in every following verse after the first. It’s called a Pantoum.

In other words as wiki would say – The pantoum is a form of poetry similar to a villanelle in that there are repeating lines throughout the poem. It is composed of a series of quatrains; the second and fourth lines of each stanza are repeated as the first and third lines of the next stanza.

The formatting didn’t work out at all at the publishing stage……giving it a completely different format or structure of the pantoum. Also recognising the mistake in the second stanza, for posterity it will stand as an attempt.

KEEP YOURSELF IN THE LOVE OF GOD.

You cannot, in this life, put yourself outside His love.

looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

โ€œLord, here is my life. Here are my plans, my aspirations, my dreamsโ€”as well as my weaknesses, shortcomings, and sins. I believe that Your plans are better than mine, in the long run.โ€ – Greg Laurie

Connecting Rural Beaders to Urban Customers

2020 was a terrible year, particularly in the Eastern Cape as it battled Covid-19, so a group of women decided to keep calm and bead on.ย 

Bringing Beauty to a Tough Year

A Cape Town businesswoman is matchmaking with a difference โ€“ connecting a group of talented traditional women in the Eastern Cape who love beads, and customers who love incorporating the ancient art form into their everyday wear.ย

The most important thing I can tell you about aging is this: If you really feel that you want to have an off-the-shoulder blouse and some big beads and thong sandals and a dirndl skirt and a magnolia in your hair, do it. Even if you’re wrinkled. – Maya Angelou

I belong to no race nor time. I am the eternal feminine with its string of beads. – Zora Neale Hurston

Every seam, every lace, every bead has been painstakingly, with love, corrected, perfected and mastered. – Zac Posen

Whether you are beading, writing, crafting something interesting or simply just relaxing, enjoy your boxing day. The weather is just fine, – blue skies, dots of clouds, lots of sunshine on the East Coast of Mzansi today

May it be Yours

May it be yours, the Glory, the Wonder, the Miracle of this Holy Season. Have a Blessed Christmas.

And there were shepherds out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them.

Four Gifts in One – A Poem

O’ Holy Night
Holy poetry, reflecting on the night that Christ was born.
‘The earthโ€™s axis rocked gently, a newbornโ€™s cradle.’
An event that would change the course of History and our lives forever.
Thank you @suzette for sharing your poetic meditation in celebration of the Living Word we commemorate on Christmas.Day.

One ordinary night, long ago, in a noisy manger,

The earthโ€™s axis rocked gently, a newbornโ€™s cradle.

His identity, foretold in stories and The Torah,

The eternal curtain had unveiled, Abba Father.

The priestly tabernacle lay swaddled in a stable,

His names: Hosanna in the Highest, Counsellor,

Emmanuel, Wonderful, Lion of the tribe of Judah,

His voice; Like the sound of many waters,

His mission: To deliver,

Four gifts in One โ€“

Something wanted,

Something needed,

Something to wear,

Something to read,

โ€“ The Living Word.

Immeasurable

The way and the manner in which the Apostle John writes, speaks, ministers and preaches about our Lord, at times I’m caught up in thinking that this is a bond, it is a love immeasurable. The earnest enthusiasm about the great love that God has for us portrayed through his Son, our Lord and Saviour is ever present in the epistemic letters of the Apostle John. And there is a sweet urgency to get these truths across to his brothers and sisters, the saints and his friends, indeed his followers.

Filled with immeasurable joy and peace, it was a blessing to receive the Word this morning.

Clear and free, filled with clarity, wishing you a cloudless, blue skied 24 December 2020.

Sheltered and Private, the First Canonical Hour.

Matutinal, the word of the day appeared as a sweet and unexpected message, a surprise event at morning twilight, declaring its meaning – occurring in the morning, of the early hour or early in the day – and brought with it a gift for me, – a reassuring and satisfying feeling.
