Dutch version / Nederlandse versie: . . . ongewapende waarheid en onvoorwaardelijke liefde zullen het laatste woord hebben.
“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound
to the starless midnight of racism and war
that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood
can never become a reality…
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love
will have the final word.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

We are not the owners of this world, but as renters and permitted users we have to take care of what is given to us to live in and to share our love.
Dutch version / Nederlandse versie: Hoge herkenningen. . . We moeten de aarde verrijken met liefde en vriendelijkheid.

“We must enrich the Earth with love and kindness.
We must hold our hands over plants and animals and protect them,
for we are servants, guardians, protectors,
and consequently masters on Earth!”
– Roselis von Sass(The Truth About the Incas)

“A good deed is never lost;
he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and…
he who plants kindness gathers love.”

There are several religious people who say Christians may not be involved in politics or even may not go to bring out their vote.
In Belgium voting is compulsory, and not going to the ballot station is a criminal offence, as such each Belgian is expected to have his say and foreign residents in Belgium, are welcome also to give their voice so that there can be worked at a democratic country, where everybody can have his say.
This month and especially on the 26th of May each resident of Belgium and those living in the European Union, should think about what they want to do and what position they want to take in this world.
Everybody should know that there are animals and plants plus enough people who have no voice and that it is important that people come up for them.
What are you waiting for? …. That ache inside you in sign enough.
- We lean into “be still” + ignore call “to do”.
- heartbeat of Love = action. Love = action. >Love cannot exist without action.
- in the doing = change the world.
God already gave you mandates:
- care for the poor and the orphaned and widow;
- fight against injustice;
- proclaim the gospel;
- love others the way you want to be loved;
- relentlessly throw all of who you are at the feet of Jesus.
- Don’t make exceptions for yourself.
- Don’t make excuses.
speak it out loud.
Speak up even if it means you are the only one left standing.
You want to change the world? = Go home + love you family. Be bold. Love the broken. Call out evil every single time.
Fight for the children who cannot fight for themselves.
Love risks everything to see truth + justice thrive.
You are not an angel; and as a human being, you are likely to make mistakes and offend your partner. You may not mean it, but your actions and/or inactions may hurt your partner. Sometimes you may offend even when you had the best of intentions. In such instances, it is a sign of respect to acknowledge your mistake and apologise. Saying “I’m sorry” implies that you respect your partner’s feelings and you are not happy you hurt them. It is a show of love and respect to render an apology when you hurt your partner; learn to say “I’m sorry” as much as possible!
– Josiah B. Andor, PhD (Director, Paraklet Love and Life Consultancy).
When your partner does something for you or gives you something as a show of their love, you need to show respect by expressing some gratitude; just say “thank you”.
Ingratitude is a sign of disrespect implying that you feel entitled to whatever you have been offered, hence no need to show gratitude. When you say “thank you” for whatever your partner does for you or gives you, you are simply appreciating their love and communicating your own love, respect, and admiration for their show of love. As a sign of respect, you must learn to say thank you, even for the little things!
An ode to all mothers and reason enough to make of every day a thanksgiving day.
While sipping wine and listening to soft Latin jazz and samba, I thought of the great love women/mothers provide unselfishly with no boundaries. Sadly, it often goes unappreciated. I truly believe it is difficult for any man to truly reciprocate the endless love & warmth their lady truly deserves.
This poem evolved from those thoughts.
the infinity of you
The little boy in me
stands before the immense
universe of your poetry
Where metaphors are constellations
and your deep verses
are remote galaxies
Your words travel beyond
time and space
forever eclipsing me
like a lonely particle of love
For you are my sun
I, your loyal moon
a small bewildered child
the infinity of you
This Thursday I will be volunteering at a local Soup kitchen helping to feed the homeless for Thanksgiving. Thus, I needed to make my second post of the…
