Who Is The Greatest Poet?

As I sit here and look down upon the Earth, it makes me wonder why I gave it birth.

I see all I have created, man has become totally sedated.

The Devil has destroyed it from within.

Everywhere I look there is sin, soon the world will end as you know it.
But not me, I’am The Greatest Poet.

I gave you all the gift of life.
All you did was stab it with a knife.

If you all joined together, it would last forever.

I can’t keep fixing your problems, when the Fruit of Life never blossoms.

If you continue this evil path, All will feel my wrath.

So I sit here and determine your fate.
I urge you to stop the hate.

Great Mom’s Here And Far

by  _Thinkr1 – (Milton J. Smith Sr.)

There is no record of Miss Anna Jarvis becoming a mother. No one person, however, had more to do with this upcoming Sunday’s celebration. It was Miss Jarvis of Grafton, West Virginia, who originated Mother’s Day. In 1907 she was in Philadelphia and persuaded the children of her church to honor their mothers by wearing a white carnation to the services. In later years red flowers were worn to indicate a living mother and a white for the deceased.

The appeal of a day dedicated to Mother spread rapidly. Within four years every state of the union observed a Sunday to honor one’s maternal parent. Also in 1911, leaflets were printed in ten languages, and the new holiday was accepted in all of North and South America, Africa, China, and Japan.

In 1914 Congress voted the second Sunday in May as an official holiday and recommended that President Woodrow Wilson pro­claim it as such. He did so, as have all his successors. Mother’s Day is also one on which to fly the country’s flag.

Soon, sons and daughters were presenting gifts. Other than flowers, perhaps no gift in direct relationship to Mother’s Day has been given than reproductions of Whistler’s painting of his own mother. First exhibited in London during the year 1872 the original was sold in 1891 for $600 to the French Government. The reproductions have sold over 5 million copies. A United States stamp was issued in 1933 to honor the painter and his subject.

The custom of honoring motherhood was once a pagan festival lasting three days. The ancient Greeks gathered in caves and woods to honor Cybele, mother of the gods. About 250 BC. this practice spread to Rome and was begun on the Ides of March. Goddesses of myth are often thought of as being motherly. Obviously, these were far different holidays than the one we presently observe.

Mother’s Day is best reflected when one considers the many acts performed in love for one’s children.

Solomon, the Biblical sage, solved a perplexing problem using the wisdom of God and mother love to decide the birthright of a child. Two harlots living in the same house gave birth to children within three days of each other. One child died during the night whereupon the bereaved mother switched babies to acquire the living child. When the awaking mother discovered the attempted deception she appealed to King Solomon.

He ordered a sword be brought forth and directed the baby be cut in half. This prompted the woman whose child it was to cry out, “Give it to her.” The deceitful mother cried, “Kill him.” Thus, Solomon knew the right mother.
He awarded the child to the harlot who was willing to give up her child.

Recently a terrified mother threw herself under a train in a desperate attempt to shield her three-year-old son from death. This tremen­dous act of love and protective instinct is noteworthy in that she died with the child.

Samantha, crippled by polio at two years of age, was told she would never walk.
Her answer was, “Not only will I walk, I will raise a family.”
Attesting to this fact is her grateful family.

Grandmother Smith knitted 50 pairs of mittens a year. At Christmas time the warmth of those beautiful mittens was gleefully appreciated by the children of a frozen New Hampshire community. Her love for them could be seen by an act of love. “Grammy” never saw the love smiles on their faces because she was blind.

Surely, most are aware of the twofold love of Mother Teresa and the comfort she brings millions around the world. A television reporter asked her how she felt about not being able to feed the world. Her answer, “My success is measured in how close I remain to God.” Thus, to all Mom’s and Mother’s, Happy Mother’s Day!

All is Not Lost

He was well liked by his peers, confident, good-looking, intelligent, strong,  but most of all kind.  There was a strong connection with his church and the Saviour and he couldn’t wait to go on a mission for his church.

This young man did just that when he was old enough to go, to preach the gospel to the world was a dream come true for him and his family was so proud of the young man he became!

He served two years living among  the impoverished, serving and loving them.  He grew as a man of great faith as well, excited to return home, receive his education, find employment and start a family of his own.

He did all of these things, after graduating in architecture, working for a reputable firm, he found the women of his dreams who shared the same desires as he did.  They vowed to always put each other first and give 100% of themselves to each other.

They also had a son whom they were both very proud of, although mom spent much of the time raising him due to her husbands work ethic, he managed to make an appearance to  all of the important activities and accomplishments their son was making.

His time away from home was becoming more frequent and longer.  He was putting so much effort into climbing the corporate ladder, that he forgot his main goal of making life for him and his family happy and comfortable.

He started flirting with women he worked with and women outside of work until he found himself having an affair, quite a few in fact.  One evening his wife found evidence of it and confronted him, he sheepishly admitted to his transgression and begged forgiveness.  It took her a while, but she did, she loved him and had faith in him.  However, it was short-lived, even their teenage son could see what was going on and lost all respect for his father.

With much trepidation, his wife left him.  He begged and pleaded for her to come back and promised to do anything to change, she said no.  He went to the leader of his church upset and asking for guidance.  He was told that he must repent.  To repent is to stop doing the thing that he was doing and to be truly sorry for it.

He was despondent,  his wife wouldn’t take him back and he was sorry, but it wasn’t enough.  He went home, got in his knees and prayed with great tears in his eyes, he collapsed into a heap of exhaustion.  He started immediately into a curious dream.

He was in the desert heat, climbing up a steep cliff, he didn’t know why, but he had to reach the top and he was only half way and he was already straining against his weary muscles.  When suddenly he heard a distant commotion.  He looked down from where he was perched and could see and group of people gathering, but couldn’t make anything out.  Deciding to go down only about 20 feet, maybe he could see what’s going on.

Indeed he did, to his surprise, it was Roman soldiers whipping, kicking and beating the Saviour. He started screaming down at them to stop,  they couldn’t hear him.  He started scrambling down as fast as he could, screaming and crying ” don’t you know who that is? Stop! All to no avail.  Once off of the cliff and as he got closer, he could see the muscular soldier raising a heavy mallet into the air bringing it down with a heavy thud onto the nails that would go into the Saviours flesh and onto the cross.

He was running and screaming to stop, that’s our Saviour, you don’t know what you’re doing!  He finally got to the soldier and grabbed him by his shoulder and spun him around.  To his shock and surprise, the solder was none other than himself.

He woke up sobbing uncontrollably, now he knew what repentance really meant, they aren’t just words, they are being.  To know that when you offend or hurt someone, you are really doing it to the Saviour and he realized what it meant for Him to be crucified for everyone’s sins so they could have the opportunity to return to Him!  We must know to never do that thing again.   His wife accepted him back home with welcome and loving arms and he returned to church with a renewed energy and understanding of the gospel.
