A New Chapter

                                  "let us be glad and rejoice,
                                    and give honour to him:
                                   for the marriage  of the lamb
                                   is come, and his wife hath
                                   made herself ready." Revelation 19:7

                                  John had been married previously
                                  But his wife died in  a plane crash.
                                  They had no issue till her death.

                                 I couldn't hide Jerry
                                 From him.
                                He got to meet my son first
                                At the grocery;
                                And in his numerous visits
                                To my home.

                               How he dotted on 
                               My boy!

                             Jerry saw him as a father-figure
                             A vacuum, I can never fill.

A Beautiful Day

                      "for God is not unrighteous to
                       forget your work and labour
                       of love, which ye have shewed
                       towards his name, in that ye
                       have ministered to the saints,
                      and do minister.'' Hebrews 6:10

                      But, God loves me.
                      He remembered my
                      Labour of love.

                     Five years later,
                     I was at the grocery store,
                     On a sunny Sunday afternoon.
                     I ran into an old friend.

My Firstfruit

                                  "consecrate to me
                                    every firstborn male'' Exodus 13:2

                                 After my third trimester
                                 Of pregnancy,
                                 I put to bed
                                 A bouncing baby boy.

                               My firstfruit,
                               The strength of my youth,
                               My joy, my comfort,
                               My shining Armour.

                               He was christened
                               On the eighth day,
                               And I named him,

                              Jerry was such a
                              Cute child.
                              Always fun to be with.

                              His growth was rapid
                              And he is wiser than his age.
                              I think he took after me;
                              Very witty and intelligent.

                             I moved on

A Little Confession

                            "if we confess our sins,
                             He is faithful and just
                             to forgive us our sins
                             and to cleanse us from
                             all unrighteousness.'' 1 John 1:9

                            I woke up on my bed
                            The next day feeling disturbed.

                           I must wake up
                           And face reality.

                           I just narrowly missed
                           God's perfect match for me.

                          I need help.

The Hard Truth

                                '' he that covereth his sins
                                  shall not prosper;
                                  but whoso confesseth
                                  and forsaketh shall
                                  have mercy''  Proverbs 28: 13

                                Getting married to Jessy
                                Would only be in my dreams;
                                Not with my 8 weeks old 

                               Abortion is not an option;

Why Me, God?

                        ''the Lord does not delay
                         His promise, as some
                         understand delay,
                         but is patient with you....2 Peter 3:9

                        I couldn't abort the pregnancy,
                        I was stuck.
                        Joshua denied paternity.
                        I resolved to bear the grunt.

                       8 weeks gone!
                       I was at a prayer vigil
                       In my local church.
                       My Pastor said,
                      ''See me after service''.

Just a Little Sin

                     ''lest there be any fornicator,
                       or profane person, as Esau,
                      who for one morsel of meat
                      sold his birthright''...Hebrews 12:16

                     It was the year 2000.
                     Joshua was newly employed
                     In my office;
                     A Millennium Staff,
                     A Chartered Accountant,
                     And a bubbling christian.

                   He was everything I ever
                   Wanted in a man.
                   Tall, eloquent, intelligent
                   And good looking.
                   He was God- sent
                   So, I thought.

                   I was desperate.
