Had I Known

What is this life as we know it,
If it does not come to an end,
Yes the end of our earthly journey,
Is inevitable to to each human,
An end that has no power in itself,
The power comes from the quality of our relationships with each other,
Everything we do here,
As little as it may seem insignificant,
Will determine the quality of our life at the end,
Let us use every available opportunity in the now,
To ensure that when that moment comes,
This phrase “had I known” will cease to exist,
And the phrase “thank you Lord I was able to…”
As little as it may have seemed,
Will resound in our ears and hearts.
May God’s abundant graces be poured out on us all!

Do you believe that we are able to come to the end of our earthly life with no regarets?


The Future Yes But?

There comes a time,
When we are called to close our eyes to the future,
And appreciate the now,
To many the presence is not lived and appreciated,
Many are the times,
Because we are overwhelmingly focussed on our goals,
We evade the presence,
We keep looking for a better future,
Not realising that this expected future,
Has already arrived with us,
It is here,
By the time this future is materialsied,
If it is ever materialised as planned,
We are no longer in a position to accept it or welcome it,
Lord help us to appreciate the presence,
Appreciate the esence of the “now”
For it is only a true and honest harnessing of the presence,
That bears a tangilbe future,
May your grace be upon us all.
