Shadow And Light

Shadow & Light

  Shadow always owes its birth to light, Without light shadow is snubbed outright, That’s why we should never fear shadows, Banish your fears out of the windows. Light gives of itself very freely, Light can be stark and can dance wildly, Whenever light shines shadows follow, Our fears of shadows become hollow. We have within us our special light, ...

Crepuscular Rays

Crepuscular rays at Lutong Beach

Streaming brightly through gaps in the clouds, The shafts of light leave me without doubts, Beautiful sun rays showing their might, Before the sun retires for the night.   Like furrows of a freshly ploughed field, These God rays are a wonder to view, Sunbeams shining from the dusky sky, Like ladder to heaven up so high.   Enamoured by ...

My Wrestling Matches With God On My Life Journey

Father Warganer is the second from the left in the front row and Father Smith is the last person from the left in the last row.

Like Regina Brett in her book “God Never Blinks”, I sometimes felt that at the moment I was born, God must have blinked and thus missed the occasion, unaware of my birth at all. I felt like the poet who wrote that he was born on a day God called in sick. Shortly after my birth almost 55 years ago ...

Holier Than Thou Attitudes

Wise words from Albert Einstein

I am and always will be a sinner. But that’s the beautiful thing about Jesus. I’ll always try to be a better person in the eyes of God. But I’m not all of a sudden stepping up on a pedestal and saying I’m holier than thou, ’cause I’m not! – Billy Ray Cyrus I totally agree with Billy. The holier ...
