My Everything

Like an infant
I rest
Under your bosom
My shaking self , seeks warmth

Make them stop!
Make them go away!
A child...longing to be
At peace , at play

My Shelter, my Strength
my Friend , my Love
my Heart , my Soul
my Everything

Hold me,
Never let me go
If only, within Your shadow
There, I will remain.

Job 38 : 1 , 8 - 11

Today's first reading :

Then from the heart of the tempest Yahweh gave Job his answer. He said:

Who pent up the sea behind closed doors when it leapt tumultuous from the womb,
when I wrapped it in a robe of mist and made black clouds its swaddling bands;
when I cut out the place I had decreed for it and imposed gates and a bolt?

'Come so far,' I said, 'and no further; here your proud waves must break!'

Happy Father's Day Daddy.

But it was displeasing to me that I acted like a worldling, and it was greatly burdensome to me now that the hope of honor and of money no longer inflamed my desires as it formerly did to help me endure such a heavy bondage.

For those hopes no longer delighted me when compared with the sweetness and beauty of Your house, which I loved.

A starry night

My only hope

I dream

I long

You wiped a tear

Silk most precious

A diamond placed

Royalty redeemed

A kiss

Comfort perfected

Woolen hugs

Warmth returned

Within these arms

I belong

Within this embrace

Enlightenment ?

How Enlightened Are You?

Well. . .
If you can live without caffeine or nicotine;
If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains;
If you can resist complaining;
If you can understand when loved ones are too busy to give you any time;
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment;
If you can ignore friends' limited educations and never correct them;
If you can treat the rich and poor alike;
If you can face the world without lies or deceit;
If you can conquer tension without medical help;
If you can relax without liquor;
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs;
If you can have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, gender, sexual preference, or politics ,

Then you have almost reached the same level of spiritual development as your dog.
Blake Raphael Netto,
thy adorable furriness brings much joy ! :)

love you boy !

Those lil angels..

A little something for the sweetest angels my little life has been blessed with.
Mere words could never fully express what a precious place you hold and always will.

The precious Isabelle & Christan

The precious Rahul & Priyanka

Love you so very dearly.

June 2009

Its been a while since I’ve written any of my own pieces...

Somehow, I seem to have lost (hopefully temporary) my ability to translate emotions and sentiments into a coherent string of words expressing the deepest depths of my soul….

June 2009, marks the start of a new beginning.

A new mission . The same vision.

Every fiber of my being is in a state of gratefulness, never did I imagine such calm, collected, assurance.

Never did I imagine such clarity, wisdom and guidance to simply be…..
His instrument.

This is the path I have chosen and like all chosen paths.. some days brighter than the other.

Today, I look back on those ( numbered )cloudy tempest tossed days.. and I see the many angels my life has been blessed with.

Some have remained through the decades. Some a little less.

But all, an angel just the same.

The end of one journey, clearly marked the beginning of a new journey.

....hence the journey continues.
