"Poetry, Prose and a Farewell."

"Poetry, Prose and a Farewell."
 Poet Starry's Note...
If you are interested in having one of My Photos or Art Poems, go to My Poetry Corner (the Link is at the bottom of this page), and find out how... 
I have been longing for a Summer breeze...
Vacation time and a good break is coming to me. Praise the Lord!
Summer is approaching in my corner of the world. Days are longer and tantalizing for outdoor activities, hiking, doing exercise, or just taking a healthy stroll round beautiful landscapes in mother nature. I really do not have to go too far to do these things. The Rainforest covers many areas, and it indeed has it all, if one knows where to look for the right things to do.
My daughter and grandchildren invited me to fly to New York for a family reunion in the Spring of next year 2013. My dear family will be celebrating my youngest granddaughter's 4th birthday. If my health improves, I'll be so happy to go and stay there forever.
Then, I should get fit and in good shape for our memorable venture which involves preparations ahead of time for the incoming event. My first goal at this point is to get healthier and lose some weight in order to fit my body in one of those small seats on the airplane. Therefore, I shall be ready for what is coming, if that is God's will.  
This is my last post before my break, so I'll share a poem that I wrote a while ago. I call it:

"If tomorrow never comes."

Catching every breath I deeply take
And moving slowly into the rainbow,
I lie beneath the sunset
Watching the foam of sea waves rolling down.
If tomorrow never comes,
I will hold no regrets behind;
I have found everlasting moments
To rest happily on my mind.
New worlds envisage a new freedom
Venturing into gardens with open doors.
I step in the midst of hush
Where the lions roar and the eagles soar.
I spread the wings of my soul
Writing a heartfelt creation.
My soul soars like an eagle
Bringing hope with my inspiration.

Too often we underestimate the power of love, a loving hug, smile, kind words, listening ears, honest compliments, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Our Earth is crammed with beauty, natural wonders, love, peace and happiness, if we really take a good look around, for there is beauty everywhere in the world. We should be present in all things, show kindness and compassion to others, we can all do small things with great love.
We must protect mother nature for our children, grandchildren, and children yet to be born. We must protect nature for those who can't speak for themselves.
This Poet is Craving for a Better World with Justice for All.
I have been reading and listening to the News about Child Abuse and Domestic Violence.
It just breaks my heart in million pieces.
I could imagine a child, so small, so vulnerable, crying desperately and screaming: "Mom, don't hit me! Mom, don't hurt me, please! Then, mom stops...
But, what happens if she won't stop?
What happens if she will keep on doing it?
What happens if nobody says anything, because they do not want to get involved?
What happens if nobody cares? I wonder...
That child -if she/he is lucky to survive- will grow up and become an adult one day.
There is a proverb that says: "It is easier to build stronger children than to repair broken men."
A broken spirit is difficult to heal. Love from family and true friends will certainly help for the healing process.
I also wonder what happens if the same lonely child, but as an adult, will keep meeting the wrong people who just keep hurting, or even trying to kill her/him...
What do you think about abuse of power? Is it fair or unfair?... 
At times, we are overburdened going through hardships, and the outlook of the tempest pounds in our lives so hard pouring out its most bitter path. As we may row alone in a raging sea of life, or as we may feel trapped inside a tunnel without an end, we surely know that if we trust the Lord with all our hearts, He will embrace us with His loving arms, pick up our falling or weary bodies, and uplift our hearts with the power of His healing love. There is always sunshine after the rain. There is no need to get hurt, for each dawn gives us a new opportunity, a new beginning to deal with the brand new day that God is giving to us as a gift of life. If we look into our hearts, we shall find Him dwelling there with His Almighty care. We ought to find a new turning point after the turmoil that makes us weary, although it's hard to do. We should try our best and find comfort in God's Holy Words. Jesus said: "I am the vine, you are the branches." (John 15:5)
The dazzle of the new daytime brings new hope into my lonely heart and whispers that there will be a much better tomorrow ahead of me. True love recognizes no barriers and penetrates walls to arrive at its destination. Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation as a grown up person. I was reading a poem Online from an Unknown Author.
This poem holds so much wisdom in it that I would love to share these poetical lines with you...
"The will of God will never take you,
Where the grace of God cannot keep you,
Where the arms of God cannot support you,
Where the riches of God cannot supply your needs,
Where the power of God cannot endow you.
The will of God will never take you,
Where the Spirit of God cannot work through you,
Where the wisdom of God cannot teach you,
Where the Army of God cannot protect you,
Where the hands of God cannot mold you.
The will of God will never take you,
Where the love of God cannot enfold you,
Where the mercies of God cannot sustain you,
Where the peace of God cannot calm your fears,
Where the comfort of God cannot feed you...
Everything happens for a reason."

"MY MORNING PRAYER."
Dear Lord and Heavenly Father,
I love You and need You. Please, come into my life and heart!
I thank You, Lord for this newborn day, I thank You for my being able to see and hear this morning. I am blessed because You are a forgiving and understanding God. You have done so much for me, and You keep on blessing me. Please, forgive me this day for everything I have done, said or thought that was not pleasing You, Father. I ask now for Your forgiveness. Help me start this day with a new attitude and plenty of gratitude. Let me make the best of each and every day to clear my mind, so that I can hear from You. Please, broaden my mind that I can accept all things. Let me not whine and whimper over things that I have no control over, and give me the best response when I am pushed beyond my limits.
I know that when I can't pray, You listen to my heart. Please, dear Lord Jesus, continue to use me to do Your will, and only Your will, Father.
I pray for all my sisters and brothers in Christ, for each and every family member in their households. I pray for peace, health, love and joy in their homes. I pray that every single eye that reads this morning prayer knows that there is no problem, circumstance, or situation greater than God. Every battle is in the Almighty Hands of God to fight. I pray that these words be received into the hearts of every eye that sees it.
Do not let evil forces break your spirit!
Wear the Armour of God at all times.
In Jesus' most Holly Name, I pray. AMEN.

Dear Readers,
I worked very hard writing and posting interesting themes all these years in the Internet. Therefore, all My Blogs will remain Online as long as Blogger will allow them to stay. You may read my older posts, if you wish. Anyway, I shall continue posting meaningful articles concerning our natural environment whenever time provides. I am a nature lover, animal's lover and advocate. I hope many of you will be interested in reading these kind of topics.
In my heart of hearts, I am also a flower and a tiger at the same time. Both sides of me will eventually develop the plots of all my stories, poems and thoughts...

Such a beautiful prayer Starry dear. xx Don't think you might not go see your daughter...BUT, know you will, and then you will. In Gods word, it says, As a man THINETH in His heart, so he shall be.
So, think the positive and look forward to the happiness of seeing your loved ones with anticipation. God loves you, you are the apple of His eye, and what Father doesn't give the most of what he has to His child. You will get there...so, start packing and get excited!!! xxxxxxxxxxx

Hi my sweet friend Crystal,

I am flattered by your stunning compliments. God's love for His children is outstandingly amazing.
I trust the Lord with all my heart. My Almighty Savior shows me the way where to go.
I am waiting for God to reveal His masterplan for me.
I follow strong moral principles which I apply in my life with daily dosis.
Thank you, Crystal for taking your precious time to read my posts, and offer your wise evaluations!
Please, visit me often. I highly appreciate true and everlasting friendship in Christ.
May the Lord sustain you in the palm of His hand!
Blessings to all.
Poet Starry.
