Once again I was blessed with an opportunity to write a poem and prayer for the Bishop’s College Past Teachers’ reunion, which was held in January this year. Here is the acrostic poem TEACHERS



Dear Lord, You walked among the people, teaching them and lighting the way for all of us. We are humbled and honored to share this title of Teacher with You. We are grateful for the call You have placed on our hearts. And we thank You for allowing us to do great things among Your children. Lord, we harken again to Your calling – however big or small the task may be, we keep our hearts open to serve You with the guidance You provide. And as we walk into the unknown that tomorrow holds for everyone, we are confident in Your love that will always light the way. We ask for Your blessing for all of us and for every heart we touch – may Your glory, always shine through. Amen

What’s in a Flame?

Faithful Light Allows Meditative Enlightenment

Many of us have lit a candle or an oil lamp and meditated faithfully, to symbolize our intentions, invoke blessings or simply as an expression of gratitude. So what’s in a flame? The light can signify anything we want it to be. It could be a number of flames for a number of blessing or just one flame that unifies our spirit with all our beliefs. A simple light that connects us with the purpose of our existence and our blessed journey or destiny.
