Double Helix Headed High

Ringlet spirals down your cheek,

Half closed eyelids hide and seek

From and for the love,

For which you were created.

Loose your grip on lies of old,

Slip into the Saviour’s hold,

Bravely let the dance

Mold the truth into your stance.

Unfathomed depths, dip in your heart;

Ripple seen is just the start,

Weight of rushing power

Freeing, washing walls apart

Bridal beauty lies within

Unbridled; He’s extinguished sin,

Skies of light wherein

Potential fiercely soars and sings

Choosing to step onto rock,

Look not back, smash the lock,

You can and will be loved

Now and through eternity!

So let your gaze be lifted to

The one who loves to hear from you,

Praise will be the key;

Outwit deceit of enemy

Your voice was bestowed by the King,

A unique one, distinctive ring,

Lest the stones cry out,

Let the Princess her words bring!

Pursuit of Happiness?

A little while ago I watched the film called The Pursuit of Happiness.

It made me cry.

But the moments where I cried were not when they were at their most poverty stricken… not the point where Will Smith, the lead actor cries… it was where the family relationships broke down, separation of mother and son, of wife and husband. Or when the father shows desperation induced cracks in compassion for his son.

The thing is… those things being in tact are where we find happiness aren’t they really? And yet sometimes it takes losing something to realise how good it was. 

I think the film had the wrong name; it should have been called In Pursuit of Wealthiness. 

So what? I have a confession to make: I am Happy.

Why am I writing about it? Because I think we are looking for it in the wrong places. And sometimes we are IN happiness and we don’t realise it till the light changes. It’s like a stain glass window… different shades and hues, all making up the picture; life. Happiness is one of the colours, Other colours are not even necessarily bad, just different. 

The most important thing though, is that there is light shining into that window… to bring life into the picture, and if it was all one colour, it wouldn’t be nearly so beautiful.

 

So I love the times when I get to be i the happy colour, they’re lovely, but the other colours make it so much richer. It’s like with every year you get to step one step back, take in a bit more of the picture.

 

And what’s the light? I believe, the light is Jesus.

Pearl: Anna

Pearl: Anna

Only a gritty life could produce such treasure.

The words again in case the picture is not clear.

Pearl

As a sun beam dances

Crisply through clear water,

So whispers He

Through His beloved daughter.

Her incandescent beauty;

The fruit of several years

Where gritty trials came,

Leaving precious souvenirs

Multitones of wisdom

Grace her precious words,

Radiant with perseverance,

Her strength is the Lord’s.

The Joy of Life! :]

I just had the MOST DELICIOUS peanut butter and plum jam sandwich on home-made brown bread. YUM!!!! Seriously, can’t stress how scrumptious it was! I delight in food most days, who am I kidding, I absolutely REVEL in food about 6 times a day…. mmmm food. :] ha ha. :]

Easter Sunday is always a joyous and uplifting shabazz isn’t it? That was a happy day indeed. The singing, rejoicing, hugs and exaltations.

Sun as well, I do like a bit of sun. It’s all so amazing really the way it works. I get all freckly in the sun, gotta wear super high factor suncream though otherwise I burn.

You know what else i really super love? Dappled sunlight through trees, where the green of the leaves is illuminated but not garish and the warmth of the sun’s rays are not so overpowering as to render those who dwell beneath helpless and lethargic (though that’s a nice feeling sometimes too).

Hoverfly through a leaf...

The Irish accent…. another joy bringer, really enjoyed it when I watched The Secret of Kells (I highly recommend watching it if you can)

Animals are such a blessing too, especially when they’re goofy! What is it about goofy people and goofy animals that is so endearing and chortle producing? I think God has a brilliant sense of humour, and I also think there are many of us who need to lighten up and take ourselves a little less seriously. My lively and absolutely ridiculous, but terribly affectionate and cute labrador Tamsin is my role model:

Composure is overrated.

Also under the topic of animals, Cats, they’re SO FUNNY… and cute as anything, if you do like cats, look up Simon’s Cat on Youtube… it’s GENIUS!! :]

And then there’s my Lovely and rather silly family, they bring me such abundance of joy I couldn’t express it in words even if I were Shakespeare (William WaggleDagger Himself) :

   

So many things to be thankful for at the end of every single day, Friends, Fun, Beauty, Truth, Food, Music the list is endless.


“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
