Forgive

A heart to forgive;
Pure grace from God;
When deeply hurt,
It’s hard to forgive;
All the same, we must;
For so divine it is to forgive;
Be not too bitter;
And and lose that grace;
That will darken your heart
And hurt you more than
Anyone else.
Forgive and forget;
And let life move on.
God, in his wisdom, will
Reward you.
Those who hurt you, forgive;
May those you wrong
Also forgive you!

Grace Estates


there are times when God puts things so squarely in your face you miss it!


 

Sometimes life is truer than fiction. You finish reading an excerpt and while walking away, you wonder if it’s true. And then there are times when God puts things so squarely in your face you miss it! You absolutely can’t even see what He’s trying to do. The examples are too numerous.

As I drive every morning, the sun rises over the foot hills and my vision blurs. It’s a winding, little back road that not many use. It’s in disrepair with lots of curves. But there’s a place I pass every morning and afternoon and I dare not stop. A rot iron gate is ajar; the invitation is so inviting but I’m not worthy to enter so I drive on with a mere glimpse. How I would love to live there!

Passing the gates, I break. I sense God’s calling but I, a mere pauper, could never fill the proprietor’s shoes. I might, though, be lucky enough to get the mail or take the garbage to the end of the hill but certainly not to own a mansion such as this.

Though I pass by and dream, reality is just a few miles away. But oh, how could I not dream of sharing my life with the one I love behind the gates called Grace Estates? Only God opens doors to let us peak at what’s in store. Though we gaze out into the wild yonder, held captive by reality, the presence of God is abundant.

Whisking through another week, so far I’ve heard God’s calling ten times. How I wish I could turn left and enter in the gates ajar! I dare to trust. My faith restrains my spirit; if only I knew what I wish was possible as God calls from upon the hill. I fear only my lack of faith while flying down the back roads, running late. I guess God’s going to have to wait; too many bills that I must pay. And I realize the metaphor – my windows are rolled up.

God, I pray your hands control my very existence – no time to stop and smell the roses. But someday I’ll stop and get out of my car. I’ll put my right hand on top of the open gate and walk up the hill of Grace Estates.

Song ‘One World Nations’ (audio & lyrics)

Michel Montecrossa’s Song ‘One World Nations’

Download this and many other great songs from Michel Montecrossa’s ‘I Have A Vision’ album here from iTunes

One World Nations

I hope for the best. I only trust the Grace.
In every being there is the light that saves.
Everywhere there is the light that shows
the One World Nations free and bold.

The Speculators’ new world energy order
is deadly for the poor and the forlorn.
People unite! Find your new morn!
Be the One World Nations free and strong.

With you, o baby, I’m learnin’ in the real world.
Food supplies are needed, water and love.
The lost and homeless need the earth of
One World Nations free and great.

Yes, I hope for the best. I only trust the Grace.
In every being there is the light that saves.
Everywhere there is the light of the newborn ones.
The One World Nations are free and young.

A Graceful Reminder

a graceful reminder

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.

Ephesians 2:8

Most of the time I am carried away by the confidence of doing a thing rightly, or sometimes a little better than the ordinary, especially when others think the same way too. I am carried by the thought that maybe I am indispensable, or at times great. But when God notices it, He sends someone to awaken me to the reality. And urgh! I am on my right place.

Dance-Electronica Song ‘Love & Sweetness Now!’ (audio, lyrics & video)

‘Love & Sweetness’ – cool Dance-Electronica song by Michel Montecrossa 

Love & Sweetness Now!

Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness now!
Love and Sweetness: the guardians of my heart.

With gleams of half-extinguished thoughts,
with many recognitions dim and fast,

Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness now!
Love and Sweetness: the guardians of our soul.

The image of the mind relived again
and here I stand with life and blood and sense.

Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness now!
Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness somehow.

Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness now!
Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness anyhow.

In grandeur and in tumult, but no less
in tender embraces, the universal grace

is the essence of things moving heart and brain
with the feeling might tender and strange.

Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness now!
Love and Sweetness: The guardians of my life’s show.

A presence that shakes, a presence that wants
the something more deep, the wonder that counts.

The ocean of peace and the blue that dares
the impossible thought of the living air.

Love and Sweetness: Love and Sweetness now!
Love and Sweetness are the spirit’s call

to all the nations and all the war lords
through all the things to change the course

of the wild eyes and to turn to the light
of union and warmth overcoming their nights.

Michel Montecrossa says:
“Let’s come together for Love and Sweetness now. Without Love and Sweetness climate change won’t stop, polito fools won’t change, bankas will remain gangstas, family life won’t be a success and humanity will tend to be in a mess.
Therefore let’s come together with me, Mirakali, Diana and our band for the Cyberrock, Dance and Electronica Concert Celebration of ‘Love & Sweetness Now!’ and do things better.”

Love & Sweetness Now!

Peace Song ‘Good Relations Save The Earth’ (audio & lyrics, video)

‘Good Relations Save The Earth’ – heartfelt peace song by Michel Montecrossa

Good Relations Save The Earth

Good relations save the earth, they are bringin’ peace.
Good relations save the earth, they are for the great.
Good relations save the earth, before it is a-gettin’ late.
Good relations save the earth, they prepare the birth
of open-minded jump-starts and setting of dates.
Protesters near panic, traumatic events.
Market melt down and intense concern.
Rescue plans and early warnings.
Addressing of the problem and investment reforms:
Who can cope with the crisis, can hear the call?
The outlook is grim but it’s never too late.
Something is different through the saving grace.
Bigger risk is coming if you follow old lines.
Capitalism is imploding and so are all the lies.
Drug war on the frontline: You have to see the signs.
Good relations save the earth, they are bringin’ peace.
Good relations save the earth, they are for the great.
Good relations save the earth, before it is gettin’ too late.
Good relations save the earth, they prepare the birth…
