Words Of Comfort (In The Time Of Death)
Let not his passing steal the many memories that his life has afforded you. He has returned to his original form and is awaiting yours. He is now everywhere. He may be as far as beyond the distant stars or as close as the caressing wind. He will speak to you through the channels of nature. You have to listen, you have to look.
Free yourself from the idea that everything has to begin and thus end, that we must be born and thus die. Let us remember that he was a spirit being having a human experience, like we all are. We are not what we notice but rather the observer of what we notice. ...
I Am A Man
I am a man not only by biology and my anatomy
But by divine assignment, grace and functionality
I am a man given the capacity to be a father
To be just like God, the source and sustainer
I am a man and being a leader is my nature
Though power given to me is the ultimate test of my character
I am a man appointed to be the foundation for my family
Setting an example for the entire community
I am a man grateful for the favour of God
