Women’s Tears and Courage

For all the women who fight for freedom, this is my salutation for all of you. I want to include all the mothers also who bless their daughters and sons and the wives as well who let their husbands go, all  with tears and courage in their hearts with hope and prayers that those who leave may return alive. BLESS YOU ALL!

Despite of what you face, you can still smile.
Thanks for the courage and bravery you offered
for your people and to the world as well.
Women of faith, you are good examples to all the women.
What you did is both a heritage and a legacy:
women liberate, free the people.
My heartfelt gratitude that I have seen you,
even in pictures only, in my lifetime.
I feel so proud that I am a woman.
May your tribes increase, influence other women
in the whole world to fight for freedom, for rights and
for life so that the next generation may live,
to have a just life, living in peace and harmony.
Thank you for offering your lives.
Long live courageous women of faith.
Please be safe and try to be able to return alive
to your families and love ones, I pray.

Again thanks to all the women  who overcome the pains of leaving,  longings, separation and even death. My heart has full respect for all of you, BRAVE WOMEN!

A Woman’s Prayer

All Embracing Mother God, with grateful hearts we continue to say THANK YOU for all the blessing  you bestowed upon us especially the breath of life,  the sisterhood, the friendship, the fellowship and our womanhood.  The delight we feel and enjoy with each other amidst sacrifices in life, as we endure to share each other’s load amidst life struggles for decent living; to end all kinds of violence inflicted unto us, our children and  environment.

Continue  to touch others collectively to enable us to break our silence; without ceasing we will gyrate our hips and bodies to express our very strong resistance for the injustices and violence of this world.

Dearest Loving and Caring God, we thank you for keeping us united-spirited-women of faith stronger,  being resilient despite of typhoons and storm surges we experience in our lives; jubilant  even with tears in our eyes  as we continue to listen, to hear, to feel  each other’s  life stories, and life experiences encountered in our daily lives.

You continue to inspire us with your Great Example through your persistent call to serve the least of our brothers and sisters; to act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with you, O God; reminding us daily the divinity you shared to each one of us to use it, to express it, to complete the fullness of our humanity in order we can experience bounty, just and peaceful living.

We bow our heads; we fold our knees in supplication, we entreat you, our Parent God to keep us going; to keep us moving.

Continue to give us the willpower to say NO to all the injustices occurring in our individual lives, in the churches, in the communities, in the whole world.

Enable us to bring our heads up, to acknowledge our womanhood and the courage to salute and even to raise our hands into fists.

Give us the strength to bring our murmurs, our laments,  our cries into an explosive shout of RESISTANCE! Through prayers, poems, songs and dances and our struggles.

With you in our midst, we can surely face life’s challenges because you never keep your distance from us, you are our life’s companion; you let us feel your guidance and presence, and make us aware of our strength; ever affirming us that we are also your God’s image and likeness.

Thus, we are always grateful to you, our Creator God because you created us, WOMEN into this world; not only to make love,  to produce babies and to fill the word with humans; not only to care the children, but to nurture them into responsible men and women;  not just as entertainers, domestic helpers nor low-paid labourers; not just being women to please men;  men to please women.

You invited us to your sacred places, altars and holy of holies ; You share us the calling of servanthood in all aspects of life.

You want us to be genuine instruments of your Love, Mercy and Service.  You call us to be bearers of the Good News to the whole wide world.

Make us. Move us. Gather us in your arms. Let us rise together in one accord celebrating the wholeness and fullness of our WOMANHOOD with the rest, those in need of truth in a just, loving, peaceful and abundant  world: the promise of SHALOM, SALA’M!

Continue to lead us,  O God of all heavens, vast universe, and the whole world.  Continue to bless each one of us for another blissful year and many years to come with your inexorable love for all.  AMEN.

Aside

An Evening Prayer

As I bid goodnight to everyone, again
I would like to express my thanks to God
for keeping me strong and always in His company
though I feel weak, emotionally distraught and lost
for all the bad things I hear, the negative comments
from those people who I thought were friends but
people who want to put me down and my family
for those people who make stories and are too happy
to wreck relationship through spreading rumors
for those people who are like vipers in lambs’ clothes
THEY WILL NEVER WIN with all their bad intentions
because God will never allow, though they appear winning
with their scheme, but BLESSED THEM, THEY MADE US WHOLE, STRONGER
though I have no power to fight, nor raise a fist against them
they may be a wall so high and mighty, but the Bible and history can tell
nothing will last forever, no one is above Him, our Creator God
In Him we are all equal, He created us in His image and likeness
who am I to desecrate God’s image in them? especially the men-in-clothes?
God continue to enlighten us, my family. Allow us not to be like them
nor act the way they do. Continue to guide us and help us to be instruments in righting the wrong, we believe amidst these trials
we are called to serve You and the people, so protect us, Lord.
This I pray, in the Name of God the Liberator. AMEN

New Day

This morning, so grateful to Creator God…

as I glance beyond the window panes
I see the streaks of the morning sun
looking up the early sky
my sleepy eyes feel trapped
enchanted morning view
trees and plants so still, clouds so calm
the surrounding in awesome wonder
how can I not let my worries to completely go?
Thank you, Lord for another day of the life you bestowed.
