Most precious gift

No gift more precious

Than this day O Lord,
Which you have so kindly
Given me;
And for which I am
Most grateful.
Grant me the grace
To make the most
Of this blessing
So wonderful;
Most precious gift;
Glory be yours for ever!

You are a blessing

So sweet, indeed;
You are so sweet;
You are a blessing;
My blessing;
A blessing to me;
But not to me alone;
Too good for me alone;
To others also;
You are a blessing
To your family;
Your lovely spouse;
Your kids;
Your neighbours;
Your community;
To the whole world;
As he commanded,
I love you so very much.

Heart so full of joy

My heart so full of joy,
Is beating like a drum;
For God has blessed me so,
In a most mighty way;
My heart so sweet like honey
The type you’d like to savor;
It’s time to celebrate;
For good things to me
Have happened;
If you do love me, dear,
Come celebrate with me;
These are wonderful blessings
Right from the king on high;
So much he has poured on me.

Be a source of joy

Are you a blessing
Or a curse to others?
Are you a source of sorrow
Or a source of joy?
Do you lift up
People
Or you put them down?
Are people better
Or worse
Because of you?
Are people happy
Or sad
Because of you?
Are you a delight
Or a sorrow
To others?
Do you help people
Succeed,
Or you make them fail?
Do you open
The way for people
To progress
Or you block
The way for them?
It is good to make others
Happy not sad;
To help people succeed
Not to stand on their way
And block them
From succeeding;
It is good to be
A source of joy
For others,
Not a source of sorrow;
You must be a blessing
Not a curse to others.
People should be happy
Not sad
Because you are there.
Don’t make people frown,
Make them smile;
Don’t make people cry;
Make them laugh.
Don’t be a source of sorrow;
Be a source of joy.

There’s joy in my heart this day

There’s joy in my heart, this day;
I am high in spirit because of you;
You are my source of happiness;
You are my source of joy;
You lift up me up so high;
Your presence is my delight;
My heart is dancing with joy;
A heart so full of joy;
What a lucky one I am!
You’ve blessed me sweetly, Lord.
There’s joy in my heart;
This very day, my heart knows
So much joy.

Why we think darkness is bad

We think darkness is bad, right?
Yes, many think darkness is bad;
And do you know why?
They won’t see anything
Unless light comes;
And they want to see;
And under the cover of darkness,
Evil things are done;
I understand you;
But mind you,
It is not darkness that is bad;
It is the bad use of darkness
That is bad;
And that makes darkness look bad;
Darkness per se is not bad;
Darkness was created by God;
And God does not create junk, does he?
God created darkness for good;
We use it for bad;
And so made it good;
We see it with our limited human eyes
And call it bad;
Like we say black is bad;
If you don’t see beauty in black,
Check your eyes;
Think of all the wonderful things
That are done in darkness;
You have a great opportunity to sleep
And rest when night comes;
God meant darkness to be a special moment
When he joins husband and wife
And they work together to produce
The most important product which you know.
Why are we chasing darkness away
In the name of civilization?
Why make darkness so diabolical?
We give darkness such a bad name;
Why are we misusing darkness
To destroy what is so beautiful?
Yes, when you were little,
You were told darkness was bad
By those who were told darkness was bad;
You accepted without questioning;
And grew up believing;
And now it looks so normal;
Why should you have questioned?
Or denied?
Didn’t they know better?
Yet, they were wrong;
Totally wrong;
Darkness is just different from light;
It has its good an its bad side;
Just like light;
But the creator meant it to give more beauty
To the world;
Let us stop giving darkness a bad name;
Let us stop misusing darkness.
Darkness is not bad darkness is good.
Darkness is very good.
It makes you enjoy the moon and the stars.

Thank you @ Carly. Your comment on my first post on darkness, why I love darkness inspired me to further explain my belief about darkness.

I slept like a log

I slept like a log of wood;
I slept like never before;
I slept like a fool;
I slept without turning sides;
I slept till dawn;
I slept till I could no more.

There are days when you go to bed and sleep soundly till morning and days when you go to bed and sleep badly.

Always thank God when you are blessed with sound sleep. Do not take it for granted.

Thank God for peace that offers us the opportunity to sleep soundly at night.

Thank God for all blessings. They are a gift from God. Thank him for them. And pray for more blessings.

How was your sleep this night? Did you sleep soundly? Have you thanked God for your night?

If it was not the best night, thank God for the little you had. Take note that it could have been worse.

Pray for peace, so that we can sleep soundly.

Pray for peace, so that we may go about our work freely and with joy.

Pray for peace, so that after a successful day’s work, you may go to bed and sleep soundly.

I encourage you to cultivate the habit of gratitude and appreciation.

Appreciating the good that comes your way and thanking those responsible for it is a worthwhile thing to do.
