A Poem Preview from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One"


Here a poem from "Growing Strong in The Lord - Part One", now in My Faves book.  This poem hits close to my heart. It's very true, we can't pick our kin folks. But we can chose how we decide to interact with our kin; our blood. That being said, God gave us each other on purpose as a blessing towards each other. In this, some may waver in the treatment they give each another simply because once adulthood comes into play, some may not agree and/or approve of the action(s) of a blood kin. In today's society, seems more care and attention is given to the waters of societal preference over God given blood-ship; in a sense, making water thicker than blood. It's important to remember God's gift of blood-kin in swimming this vast ocean of today's society. 

Water Thicker Than Blood

In the aspect of reality blood is thicker than water
But, in the aspect of society today water seems thicker
The idea of family society now has slaughter
Now accepting one as kin as now comes quicker

As one judged in society more harshly these days
Blood-ship thins, water and blood now being no difference
Because the wave of expectations has become life’s maze
We give-in to what one does for another all the preference

As Christians water over blood should not be this flood
In not being able to forgive when kin does offend
Water should never become thicker than blood
Just because now in society this be the trend
I ask, what happened to kinship love, given from above?

Thoughts: True, we can’t pick our family; thus, our blood. But in society today it seems people forget this placement in life to be a blessing; especially when a kin folk does something that one doesn’t approve of, or that offends, or when one isn’t able to do as other family members are able to do. Seems the saying “Blood is thicker than Water” not to be true these days. So, what can one do? One can try to remember the joy when God first gave you the blessing of knowing one to be a family member. Pray and forgive as this union He gave out of love because in reality blood is thicker than water.

Godly Woman by Andile Andy (Really like this Poem)

Godly Women by Andile Andy A woman who walks in God's love. Reflecting the beauty of the father above. Who is not defeated by things most men find tough. A woman whose not just a pretty face But a woman of God's grace Beholding God's face A woman who lives knowing she's headed heaven in God's place. A woman of good character, not better competence. A woman who symbolizes the goodness of God by her excellence. A woman who pray for her house, and other residence. She walks with the Lord shouting, pleading's how me the way oh God'. I'm talking abhor a woman whose 'BAD'. Baptized and delivered. I'm talking about a woman whose 'MAD' Magnificent and devoted. I'm talking about the forever loved lovable leading ladies. Who help us see the best in our daddies. A woman whose blessed. And knows that can never be reversed. A woman who does not Drink, But raises the bar. A woman who prays to properly Think, before making decisions that will p

Sadly Informing

 Hi guys, I’m will be making many decision over the course of the next several months. Sadly I’ve made one decision that was a really hard decision for me to make. I’m letting my longtime  “rhymes” name to my blog go. I’ve used that name in one way or another now for several years. I have also used the “redemptive” name in different ways for a few years now. I’m letting both names go. You see, I’ve come to a place where I’m not writing much poetry. I’ve written close to 800 poem-including those unpublished and or tossed-over the course of the last six years; most of which was out of the need to express myself in poetry as that being the only way I could at the time. However, now my expressionable needs have changed. I will be focusing more on writing post, articles, novellas and or novels (maybe), and just plain promoting rhyming poetry on occasion; after all I still prefer rhyming poetry and did creat my own rhyming form. It wouldn’t make since for me to pull away from poetry altogeth
