~*FOLLOW YOUR DESTINY*~

My ink had dried up and my feather caked
But her voice bade me …write!

They named me after a dreamer
The dreamer who foretold the future
Yet I knew not what awaited me in the land of Unity
The Fates blew me towards the Rock
The Rock harboured by the King and his men

Last season, I met Destiny…
My teacher instructed me to guide Destiny
Now Destiny has taken over my dreams
A Dreamer, all I see is Destiny
Yet, with my tongue I draw water from her eyes
I long to suck from her and to be part of her
Alas! The child in me unveils itself
I haven’t known many maidens
A few only have seen my pride

Mea Culpa - Polar2048

I have fallen for Destiny
Destiny has my secrets in her heart
The secrets of the Prince
I long to possess Destiny
That our loins may fraternize

Destiny is my Muse
I have rediscovered my voice
The word flows in me:
I desire Destiny!

A religion practiced chiefly in Caribbean countries, especially Haiti, syncretized from Roman Catholic ritual elements and the animism and magic of slaves from West Africa, in which a supreme God rules a large pantheon of local and tutelary deities, deified ancestors, and saints, who communicate with believers in dreams, trances, and ritual possessions. Also called vodoun.

~*Waiting for a Wonder*~

Examples of WONDER

  1. The Grand Canyon is one of the natural wonders of the world.
  2. This new computer is a technological wonder.
  3. The child’s eyes were filled with wonder during the trip to the circus.
  4. We watched the fireworks show with wonder and amazement.
  5. She gazed up at the tall buildings in wonder.
  6. Is it any wonder why this movie is so popular?

 

Lets take a look of an article I found about the wonders of Christmas.

The Ten Wonders of Christmas

Articles – Christmas
Written by Harold J. Sala

Over 365 names and inscriptions are found in the Bible referring to Jesus Christ, but none is more lovely than the one found in Isaiah where the prophet said, “His name shall be called WONDERFUL” (Isa. 9:6, KJV). Like ten stars that shine against the dark backdrop of history are the ten wonders of Christmas.

First, there is the wonder of HIS BIRTH. Any birth is a wonderful event, but the birth of Christ had been foretold by the prophets for centuries. To Abraham, God revealed the nation through which Christ would come. To Jacob, He revealed that Christ would be of the tribe of Judah. To Isaiah, God mentioned a family, the line of Jesse. To Micah, God whispered the name of the city. To Daniel, God revealed the time of His birth. The events leading up to the birth of Christ were like the gears of a fine watch that had to mesh together so that when the fullness of time has come, Jesus was born in Bethlehem. What a wonder!

Second, there is the wonder of HIS CONDESCENSION. Really, to understand what this means, you have to remember what heaven was like and what Jesus left to come to our world and be tabernacled in human flesh. Had men arranged His birth, it would have never been in a stable. But the wonder of His condescension means that God touched the needs of humanity right where we are.

The third wonder of Christmas is the wonder of His CHARACTER. Though we are saved by the death of Christ, His life is yet filled with wonder. Who but Jesus could say, “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?” (John 8:46). He lifted the fallen of life. He gave His life that we might have newness of life in Christ.

The fourth wonder of Christmas is the wonder of HIS PERSON. He was human yet divine. He could grow weary, yet could say, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28, KJV). He hungered, yet could take five loaves and two fish and feed a multitude. He was heaven’s light for Earth’s darkness and heaven’s bread for man’s hunger.

Then fifth, there is the wonder of HIS WORDS. He spoke with authority demanding the attention of those who heard. He said, “You have heard that it was said…But I tell you.” His words are ethically true. You will find no loopholes in what Jesus taught or said. He spoke with simplicity but with great power.

The sixth wonder of Christmas is the wonder of HIS WORKS. How can we describe them? Wherever He went, He did good. To the blind He said, “Receive your sight;” to the lame, “Rise up and walk.” He stopped funeral processions and raised the dead. He made no clinical analysis; He brought in no specialists. He just spoke the Word and it happened.

The seventh wonder of Christmas is the wonder of HIS DEATH-freely given, undeserved, but affecting a lasting relationship for each person with our Heavenly Father.

The eighth wonder is the wonder of HIS RESURRECTION. Pilate gave the order to seal the sepulcher. “Go, make the tomb as secure as you know how” was his command (Matthew 27:65). Yet the tomb is empty and Christ ever lives.

The ninth wonder of Christmas is the wonder of HIS SECOND COMING. “This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven” spoke the messengers at the Mount of Olives, “will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11).

And last of all, the tenth wonder of Christmas is the wonder of HIS SAVING POWER. “He will save His people from their sins,” was the message of the angel to Joseph (Matthew 1:21). This is the great wonder of Christmas: through His blood we find forgiveness and cleansing. Thank God for the wonders of Christmas!Yasum - Snapper Dress1-2048

~*Sudan*~

Filed under: Archive, Donna Flora, Fashion, N-core — Tags: , , , , , — falbalafaireyfashionblog @ 6:07 pm

Sudan /sˈdæn/ or /sˈdɑːn/;[7] Arabic: السودان‎, as-Sūdān), officially the Republic of the Sudan[8] (Arabic: جمهورية السودان‎, Jumhūrīyat as-Sūdān), sometimes called North Sudan,[9][10][11] is an Arab state in North Africa (it is also considered to be part of the Middle East).[12] It is bordered by Egypt to the north, the Red Sea to the northeast, Eritrea and Ethiopia to the east, South Sudan to the south, the Central African Republic to the southwest, Chad to the west, and Libya to the northwest. The population of Sudan is a combination of indigenous inhabitants of Nile Valley, and descendants of migrants from the Arabian Peninsula. Due to the process of Arabisation common throughout the rest of the Arab world, today Arab culture predominates in Sudan. The overwhelming majority of the population of Sudan adheres to Islam. The Nile divides the country into eastern and western halves.[13]

The people of Sudan have a long history extending from antiquity which is intertwined with the history of Egypt. Sudan suffered seventeen years of civil war during the First Sudanese Civil War (1955–1972) followed by ethnic, religious and economic conflicts between the Muslim Arabs of Northern Sudan and the mostly animist and Christian Nilotes of Southern Sudan.[14][15] This led to the Second Sudanese Civil War in 1983. Because of continuing political and military struggles, Sudan was seized in a bloodless coup d’état by colonel Omar al-Bashir in 1989, who thereafter proclaimed himself President of Sudan.[16] The civil war ended with the signing of a Comprehensive Peace Agreement which granted autonomy to what was then the southern region of the country. Following a referendum held in January 2011, South Sudan seceded on 9 July 2011 with the consent of Sudan.[17][18]

A member of the United Nations, Sudan also maintains membership with the African Union, the Arab League, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, and the Non-Aligned Movement, as well as serving as an observer in the World Trade Organization.[19] Its capital is Khartoum, which serves as the political, cultural and commercial centre of the nation. Officially a federal presidential representative democratic republic, the politics of Sudan are widely considered by the international community to take place within an authoritarian system due to the control of the National Congress Party (NCP) of the judiciary, executive and legislative branches of government.

~*Hera*~

HERA (HEE-ruh; Roman name Juno) was the goddess of marriage. Hera was the wife of Zeus and Queen of the Olympians.

Hera hated the great hero Heracles since he was the son of her husband Zeus and a mortal woman. When he was still an infant, she sent snakes to attack him in his crib. Later she stirred up the Amazons against him when he was on one of his quests.

On the other hand, Hera aided the hero Jason, who would never have retrieved the Golden Fleece without her sponsorship.

In Greek mythology, Hera was the reigning female goddess of Olympus because she was Zeus’s wife. But her worship is actually far older than that of her husband. It goes back to a time when the creative force we call “God” was conceived of as a woman. The Goddess took many forms, among them that of a bird.

Hera was worshipped throughout Greece, and the oldest and most important temples were consecrated to her. Her subjugation to Zeus and depiction as a jealous shrew are mythological reflections of one of the most profound changes ever in human spirituality.

Tens of thousands of years ago, as the evidence of cave art and artifacts makes clear, humanity was focused on the female body, either pregnant or fit to bear children. Childbirth was the closest humans came to the great power that caused the earth to bring forth new life in the spring. To the extent that these distant ancestors of ours were evolved enough to think of worshipping this power, we may safely conclude that they thought of it as female.

Thousands of years later (and some five to nine thousand years before our own time), the European descendants of these people lived in large villages, with specialized crafts and religious institutions. It is clear from the artifacts they left behind that they worshipped a power (or a group of powers) that came in many forms–a bird, a snake, perhaps the earth itself. And this great power was female. For the human female has the ability to procreate–to bring forth new life.

It is said that it was only when humanity discovered man’s role in procreation that male gods began to be worshipped. There is no reason to doubt, though, that male gods were worshipped before the mystery of birth was fully known. In all probability the greatest powers were thought of as female but there were male deities as well. And it is clear that even after procreation was properly understood, the more peaceful Europeans–perhaps down to the “Minoans” of Crete–continued to worship the Great Mother.

And there were many peaceful Europeans. Many of the largest villages of that distant era were unfortified. The culture known as “Old European” did not fear aggression from its neighbors. But then things changed and a great period of violence began. Invaders swept into Europe from the vast central plains of Asia. They brought the Indo-European language family that today includes French, Italian, Spanish and English. They also brought a sky god, the supreme male deity that in Greek mythology became known as Zeus.

Little is known of these early Indo-Europeans, but the peaceful settlements of Old Europe were no match for them. In some places their new culture became supreme, in others there was merger. Hardier mountain folk resisted, though many were displaced from their strongholds, moved on and displaced others in a domino effect. The Dorian invasion of Mycenaean Greece can be seen as a result of this chain reaction.

The old order seems to have held out longest on Crete where, protected by the Aegean Sea from invasion by land, the high Minoan civilization survived until almost three thousand years ago. Abruptly, then, from the perspective of human existence, the gender of the greatest power changed from female to male. And many of the stories that form the basis of Greek mythology were first told in their present form not long after the shift.

Zeus’s many adulterous affairs may derive from ceremonies in which the new sky god “married” various local embodiments of the Great Goddess. That there was some insecurity on the part of the supplanter god and his worshippers is seen in the mythological birth of Athena from Zeus’s head–as if to say that the sky god could do anything any Great Goddess could do.

This Goddess continued to be worshipped in some form down into historical times. Her worship is sometimes dismissed as a “fertility cult”, largely because religious practices degenerated under new influences. But we may look for traces in the myths of the old order, in which Athena, whose name is pre-Greek, was the Goddess herself.

Under the influence of the Indo-Europeans, this bird goddess became the chief deity of war. Her earlier guise may be glimpsed in Athena’s symbol, the owl, which derives from the preceding thousands of years of sacred bird imagery.
