Dec 8: The dreams of a dreamer, my prayer

Someone planted this Hibiscus bush in the playground opposite my home.
Someone planted this Hibiscus bush in the playground opposite my home. We all get to enjoy God’s beauty.

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one. – John Lennon

“But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you. – Luke 6:27

Somedays it’s impossible to be a Christian.
On these days I choose not to do good.
Instead I remain passive, a care less attitude.
Tell me how to love an enemy and not hate.

Does this mean peace is lacking in me?
The people I don’t like, fill my mind.
My judgement gets clouded, distorted.
Does Luke 6:27 resides only in Imagine?

In church it is so easy to make promises.
What happens when you leave the church?
The devil is waiting outside the doors.
You honk with impatience, your promises broken.

People living in peace, love conquers.
The world without war, hate banished.
Peaceful nations, no hunger, no poverty.
The dreams of a dreamer, my prayer.

Please continue to share with friends,
for the World needs our prayers.
Peace be with you. Amen.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
