Promise of New Beginnings!


5, 4, 3, 2, 1… count down to a new year, 

it’s an opportunity for a new beginning.

Each morning, when tender mercies are renewed,

forget the former things of old.

Move towards the mark of a higher calling,

press your way to a new beginning.

Put your sight on the things above,

think on the things you desire.

Out with 2017 and in with 2018!

Happy new beginning!

Now, That’s Love

Whether you are a believer or not, or whatever you choose to believe, for the sake of belief or unbelief, you must admit, there is no greater love than one who would lay down his life for another, carry the burdens for another, take thirty-nine stripes, and hang on a cross for them unless He loved them.

You do not have to believe to know that no one would do these things without the power of love- Someone who would do this, now “that’s love.”

Thanks A Mirage of Hope



Every morning,

with the aid of his walker,

the old man took his morning stroll.

To him,

morning strolls meant more than

just a routine,

they were his elixir. 

Around the same time every morning,

a stranger passed by him.


instead of the old man seeing the jogger,

he saw his shadow

as a mirage of hope.

Faces of Hope


They are the signs of hope.

They possess untainted dreams,

promises not yet broken.

They’re the vision of the future,

a life not yet lived.

They’re the voices of the nations,

their cries not yet

from worldly sorrow.

They’re the evidence

of things hoped for.

Their eyes aren’t open yet to

the maligns of inhumanity.

These are the faces of Hope.
