Poetry : My Friend

Poetry : My Friend

“Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light. Helen Keller” Read more at: https://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/helen_keller_384608?src=t_friendship Years ago, I wrote a poem on Friendship. This is one of my earlier efforts, and one of my favorites. My Friend  You are my friend, you make me smile;  You are my friend, you make me cry.

7 Ways To Save Money According To Shakespeare

7 Ways To Save Money According To Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s Wit William Shakespeare has been quoted a lot. Arguably, his wit is timeless. Some of his wit might make sense, others are senseless, some are controversial, but they are all very interesting. Certainly, after reading them, I find them quite fascinating and potentially the topic of many debates and arguments. Did you read his quotes about women and shrews, for example? Indeed. There are also the ones about foolish men. But I digress. I’ll let you discover those yourself….

“Each day we are becoming a creature of splendid glory or one of unthinkable horror.” – C.S Lewis It Is Time There’s this song which I have been listening to, by Waylon Jennings called High Time (You Quit Your Low-Down Ways).

The Most Precious Image

The Most Precious Image

The Sweetest I have seen many sweet images, photos or pictures from everywhere before. This, right here, is one of the sweetest I have ever had the privilege of seeing. It is utterly precious. Focus, if you would please, on the child. Look at her kneeling there, praying. How does this picture speak to you? Cast aside your prejudice, unbelief, scepticism, even your natural tendency to make fun of or make light of everything. Now, ask yourself, why is she…

These Pesky But Relevant Questions Here’s a question, “Do you have to be a traveler in order to be a good writer?” How about, “Do you have to experience Love and Heartache in order to write a Love Story?” Or, “Do you have to be old and weary with the world at large to be able to account for your life’s experience and make it believable?” “What about tragedy, do you have to experience one in order to justify your…

Narnia, Reality And Fiction

“All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on for ever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.” Source: “The Last Battle” (1956) As C.S. Lewis Tells It Sometimes, I wonder if my real-life experiences influence my fictional works, or if my fictional…

What Time Is It?

Welcoming The New Year, 2019 There is excitement, uncertainty, a little bit of fear and a whole lot of hope every time a new year dawns. This is how I, for one, always feel anyway.

A Perfect Man

A Perfect Man

Job 1:22, KJV “In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.” A Most Beleaguered Man Job was a perfect and upright man, fully righteous. Even God Himself said so, and to the devil no less.

He lost his children, his wealth and his properties. He lamented and grieved. But…

What Is Christmas About?

What Is Christmas About?

I read a comment once, “Christians didn’t invent Christmas!” The person who commented this was peevish for various reasons. Chiefly, because Christians insist that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus. However, that person didn’t agree and said that anyone can celebrate Christmas because…. Well, let’s recap his reasons: it’s about celebration, Santa Clause, presents, snow, the Tree, eggnog, family gathering, being happy, accepting, not caring how and why others celebrate a certain celebration as long as they are harmless…

The Secret Of Contentment

The Secret Of Contentment

1 Timothy 6:6 KJV “But godliness with contentment is great gain.” I was out shopping for Christmas gifts with my nieces and nephew. It is during this festive season that one can boast of an embarrassment of riches, if one is of that nature. For example, we see something on sale and we are tempted to buy. We see something sparkly and nice, and we buy. We see this and that and we think, Oh! This would go great with…
