[If Trayvon had lived, I believe he would write these words

To his graceful Mom, Ms. Sabrina Fulton]

 

 

Mom, for the clutch of pains that follow you

From your head down to your sole,

Wondering what life holds’ for you?

In the darkness of your world

 

Despite the pangs, Mom, do not complain

Even when you pine,

And though at times you may feel disdain

Please know, you are wholly Thine

 

Beyond this world of wrath and tears

I Loom from the Heavens’ above,

With freedom from pains or fears!

And the bounty of our Father’s love

 

So, in the midst of your circumstance

In the blessed evening shade,

Mom, live by faith and not by chance

Strong in heart and always, unafraid!

Ms. Sabrina Fullerton; I dedicate this Poem’s message to you, coupled with the amazing words so full of truth, written, so long ago.

 

“You must go back, then, a little way to the choice mercies of yesterday, and though all may be dark now, you must light up the lamps of the past. They shall glitter through the darkness, and you must continue to trust in the Lord, till the day break, and the shadows flee away.”

Nelson Mandela And The “Power of Forgiveness!”

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2013 by sheriffali

By faith, I believe that Icon Nelson Mandela, will live for another quarter century as a gift from God to us.

I do not think that it is possible to convey the measure of Mr. Mandela’s hurt and despondency at any comprehensible human level. The hurt that Mandela suffered at the hands of his subjugators who may have vehemently propagated malfeasance out of arrogance and ignorance, may have seemed like perpetuity to Mandela. This type of hurt that embodies hopelessness, despair, anguish and the likes; can only really be felt by the sufferer and his Creator.

 

It seems apparent that Mr. Mandela had the foresight to look upwards with “blind faith” at these pivotal times, which allowed his fears of pestilence and dolorousness to be placated by God’s mercy and grace.

 

We should be ever so thankful this day for the blessings of God’s forgiveness that He imputed into Nelson Mandela that made Mr. Mandela, the person that he is!

 

And so, if we too would look upwards with “blind faith,” we may begin to understand the mysteries of God’s mercies that would allow us to see that today’s sorrows become tomorrows joy; today’s failures are tomorrows successes; today’s hate turns into tomorrows love, and all of our weaknesses are transformed into Samson’s like strength.

 

It is then we would come to realize that in the like manner that man uses fire to refine Gold, God does the same in refining His souls!
