OUR WORLD,OUR ENVIRONMENT

Image result for Keep a clean environment
Our environment is our entitlement
A gift of God to be guarded jealously
Let us seek for our world's betterment
A better world for you and me.

Our world is our environment
Our duty is to take good care of it
With discipline,diligence and contentment
Let us take care and keep it fit.

Health is wealth we say
So is an environment free from pollution
A conducive environment is needed every day
We can achieve this through determination.

Let us keep clean our environment
For good health is our priority
Dirtiness is a detriment
Cleanliness is good for you and me.

This poem was written on World Environment Day.It's just a reminder to us about the importance of maintaining a decent,clean and orderly environment.

 He that diligently seeketh good procureth favour: but he that seeketh mischief,it shall come unto him.

Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks,and look well to thy herds.
Proverbs 27:23(KJV)

A slothful man will not catch his prey,but the diligent man will get precious wealth. Proverbs 12:27(RSV)

The hand of the diligent will rule,while the slothful will be put to forced labour. Proverbs 12:24(RSV)
  ~*~

But without faith it is impossible to please him:for he that cometh to God must believe that he is,and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.Hebrews 11:7(KJV)
 

Diligence comes from the Latin diligere, which means "to value highly, take delight in," but in English it has always meant careful and hard-working.The Advanced Learner's Dictionary defines diligence as careful and thorough work or effort.
If you're a diligent worker, you don't just bang away at your job; you earnestly try to do everything right. Although being lucky and talented doesn't hurt, it's the diligent person who eventually succeeds.

We can be sure of reaping the great rewards if we embrace diligence.Shalom!!!

UNIQUE

Image result for You are very special

You are made unique
Specially designed by God above
A solution to someone in need
As you shine the light of His love.

Your warm,gracious smile
Can brighten someone's day
And uniquely in your own style
There's something precious to say.

Your gentle and tender touch
Can wondrously comfort and heal
For simple things can mean so much
When surrendered to His will.

Your words good and kind
The downcast soul can lift
So look inside and bless mankind
With those divine gifts.

You see there's only one YOU
And there will never be another
So may all you say and do
Bring pleasure to our heavenly Father.

You are somebody special
And there's so much you can do
Much treasures in you though mortal
So look inside and release those potentials endued.

Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
Matt. 5 vs 14(KJV)

Through thick and thin
Be thou my guide
In sickness and health
Be thou my comfort

You are the Way.

Guide me in your love
Let your light flood around me
Drive away every darkness in me

WHEN LOVE CAME DOWN

While Shepherds watched their flock
On that night serene and sweet
They heard the angels rock
With a crystal and celestial hit.

Telling of the descent of love
For unto us a child is born
A precious gift from God above
Jesus Christ-God's Holy Son.

 
For love came sweetly down
Choosing to be born as a man
In the city of David- Bethlehem town
For that was God's perfect plan.

Glory to God in the highest
Peace and good will to men
God gave us His very best
When Christ the Savior came.
Love came sweetly down to earth
Willing to pay such a lofty price
 Oh the glory of the Savior's birth
And now we will triumphantly rise.

Effusing with healing and grace
He went about doing good
Brought salvation to the human race
Teaching us to live as we should.

 
 Love came down and was crucified
To redeem the souls of sinful men
That we may be sanctified and justified
And enjoy eternal bliss in heaven.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9 vs 6(KJV)
