SPRING!!!

It’s that period of the year when we spring into action and enjoy the actions of Spring!

Spring

Spring

Spring is one of those words that in linguistics is called a homonym, i.e. one of a group of words that share spelling and pronunciation but may have different meanings.

Let’s see what good old Wikipedia has to say on the different meanings of spring:

-          Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons, following winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring in the northern hemisphere, it will be autumn in the southern hemisphere. At the spring equinox, days are close to 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses. Spring and “springtime” refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.
(The Spring Equinox is the first day of the spring season and occurs when the sun passes the equator moving from the southern to the northern hemisphere. The next one is March 20th 2014)

-          A spring is an elastic object used to store mechanical energy. When a spring is compressed or stretched, the force it exerts is proportional to its change in length. (I would have said more about this but I really don’t want to turn this into a physics lesson).  :)

-          A spring is a point where water flows out of the ground. A spring may flow the whole year or only sometimes. This depends on the water getting into the ground all of the time (rain) or only once in a while (snow melting).
A spring often sends water down, along the land. This is how rivers start.
Some springs produce water that is good for health reasons. Sometimes towns grow by these springs because many people who are ill come there to get better. Such towns are called spa towns.

 

One thing we see from these various meanings of spring is that they are all positive, and seemingly have positive energy. The sun crosses to the northern hemisphere during the Spring Equinox, bringing warmth, sunshine and a general feeling of happiness.
A mechanical spring stores energy which can be useful in different ways such as in opening and closing doors or in helping us to write with our ball-point pens.

A water spring is probably the one time that water naturally flows up, up out of the earth and then along the ground bringing with it healing powers.

Talking about the season of spring, Wikipedia says “springtime” also refers to the ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection, and regrowth.

It is a time when we can shake off the drab of winter, pack away our dark clothes and brighten ourselves up both inside and out. The days are longer, sunnier and often happier and our hope for a better tomorrow goes up a notch. The flowers bloom, the weather is warm and we can roll down the fresh grass on the hillside, what’s not to like?

Indeed Spring is when we remember the death, burial and resurrection of our Saviour.

Just like we can plant a single seed of corn and harvest hundreds of seeds from one cob, Jesus, one man gave His life that millions upon millions may share the fruit of His resurrection. Awesome!

As we see the flowers open up and the bees, hedgehogs and chipmunks’ come out of hiding. As we see the birds fly home from their winter holiday and we bring out our shorts and flimsy tops let us remember the one with the ultimate power to put a spring in our step.

The Spring Equinox is indeed coming on the 20th of March but there is hope for a perpetual Spring. We can spring into the nest of our creator a place of eternal rest, of unlimited energy, good health and abundance. A place where the sun doesn’t leave the hemisphere and hibernation is not necessary.

Let’s sign up for the un-ending spring, let’s sign up for Jesus!

In-case I don’t get to see you here on earth, let’s make a point of meeting where the sun never goes down!

Catch you soon, LolaA

WHO PLANTED THE SAVANNAH’S?

The other day there was a programme on TV about certain animals in the savannah and how they live and survive. I was able to catch glimpses of it as I went about my other chores.

I must confess that my geography is actually quite poor, who’s to blame? I’d love to say it’s the fault of my teachers they didn’t teach me everything there is to know under the sun, but maybe just maybe I might be culpable in the matter.

Anyway the beauty of living in the information age is that any information we need is at the tip of our fingers, via the Internet and the likes of Google. In fact the other day I learnt that one of the most commonly used ‘apps’ is the Wikipedia app, no surprise there I guess. And yes, it was the exact place I was directed to by the search engine when I typed in savannah.

Like I said geography is not my strong point and for some reason I had always thought that there was actually a savannah, as in just a particular place called the savannah and it was somewhere in South America, I wanted to find out exactly where.

Surprise surprise! I was wrong and I was right.

There is a place called Savannah, it is the oldest city in the U.S. state of Georgia. No it’s not in South America, but in what is known as the Deep South of the United States and its climate is classified as humid subtropical.
Savannah lies on the Savannah River, from whence it derives its name and it is approximately 20 miles (32 km) upriver from the Atlantic Ocean. Savannah is an industrial centre and an important Atlantic seaport.

However the term savannah (with or without the ‘h’ at the end) is used to refer to certain types of landscape.

According to good old Wikipedia:

A savanna, or savannah, is a grassland ecosystem characterized by the trees being sufficiently widely spaced so that the canopy does not close. The open canopy allows sufficient light to reach the ground to support an unbroken herbaceous layer consisting primarily of grasses. The oak savanna is a common type of savanna in the Northern Hemisphere. Savannas are associated with several types of biomes (ecosystems). Savannas cover approximately 20% of the Earth’s land area.
Wikipedia also talks about the different types of savannas such as: Tropical and subtropical savannas; temperate savannas; Mediterranean savannas etc. some of which are famous for their wildlife and/or exotic and varied flora.

Oak Savannas

When you think of the beauty of the savannah’s and how the trees exist equal distantly apart with sufficient room between them to let in enough sunlight to maintain the ecosystem that lives below the tall trees one wonders at the beauty of it all and the definite attention to detail that has been exercised in their development.

The question that comes to mind is who planted the savannahs? Who bore the cost? Who spent the effort and time to make sure everything was and continues to be just perfect? If there is any problem in the savannahs today it’s man-made and not the fault of the original developer.

So in your honest opinion who is responsible for the savannahs, could it be, as some would have us believe, the result of a big bang. A big bang that ultimately led to trees being planted methodically, maybe but it doesn’t really strike me as a possibility.

Okay, I get it; it was all down to nature, a natural phenomenon. But then what is nature? The Oxford Dictionary of English defines nature as: the physical force regarded as causing and regulating the phenomena of the world. It says: it is impossible to change the laws of nature.

A physical force…

And then there is Mother Nature which the dictionary defines as: nature personified as a creative and controlling force affecting the world and humans.

So the physical force behind nature can be personified, not necessarily a human being, but an all-powerful, awesome being. A being who holds the universe in place by the breath of His nostrils.

I believe the savannahs were planted by this magnificent being. This being looks at the forests, looks at the savannahs and sees their unified beauty. He also sees each individual tree and tends to each with love and care. His attention to detail is unequalled, no tree is out of place and each individual ant is accounted for. What an awesome being.

For want of an alternative name we’ll call Him God.
The Awesome Father
The Creator of the Universe
The Alpha and Omega
The beginning and the Ending
The One who changes things but who never changes.

He was there when this world began and when it will all be over and time is no more He will continue to be.

I believe God planted the savannahs.

The beauty of the savannahs, the trees, the vegetation and the numerous animal species are a testimony of the creative awesomeness of this God. A God who loves beauty. A God who cares about the big picture but is also immensely interested in the minutest detail.

He clothes the lily of the valley in beauty and He cares and loves every single being on the face of the earth.

The God who makes sure every tree in the savannahs is correctly planted is surely interested in us as individuals. If we will lean on Him and trust Him like every tree and every creature in the savannah does He will definitely perfect all that concerns us.

The savannahs are indeed marvellous but they pale in comparison to the magnificence and the splendour God wants to manifest in us.

God planted the savannahs, may we allow Him to plant His seed of excellence in us and nurture it to perfection that even the savannahs will begin to envy God’s handiwork in us!

Catch you soon in the realm of excellence LolaA  :)

GONE WITH 2013!

 

 

Another Year Gone!
As most years are won’t to be the year 2013 had its up’s and it’s down’s. The good times and the bad. Great news that caused us to hi-five brought massive smiles to our faces and for some an excuse to pop open the bubbly. A new birth in the family, a promotion, a new house, a new car, a friend gets married, a really great holiday.

And of course there were the sad times. The times when there was more month than money and you weren’t totally sure how to put the next meal on the table. Redundancies and failed interviews, accidents, sicknesses and homelessness. The death of a loved one.

The Death of an Icon
There was one particular death in 2013 that seemed to rock the whole world. The death of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela. Mr Mandela, who is known affectionately by his clan name, Madiba is said to have died shortly before 21:00 local time on Thursday the 5th of December 2013. A very sad day for the people of his native South Africa.

 

The Free Mandela Movement was Worldwide
Growing up southwest of the Sahara desert in Africa (which of course is not news) I remember local musician after local musician releasing a ‘Free Mandela’ themed song. In fact as the likelihood of Nelson Mandela actually being freed edged towards reality a friend of mine commented, “I wonder what musicians will sing about once Mandela becomes a free man”.

That world changing day did indeed come on the 11th of February 1990 Nelson Mandela became a free man again after 27 years of incarceration for fighting for his human rights and the human rights of many of his fellow countrymen.

I say world changing day because Nelson Mandela was definitely an actor who played on the world stage. The struggle he embodied was a struggle each of us can identify with, a struggle for freedom, a struggle for equal rights, a struggle for the dignity of every human being regardless of colour, class or creed.

Nelson Mandela wasn’t perfect, apparently he was the first to admit it in his autobiography, but I haven’t read it so I can’t confirm. What Mandela did have though was a “super-human” ability to forgive.

What Could It Have Been Like For Mandela In Prison?
Come with me for a few short seconds to consider just some of the things the great Mandela went through. He was in prison, not some fancy western cell with three square meals and more TV channels than most get outside jail, he was in prison in every sense of the word. For nine years he was in a damp cell with a lone window a small stool and a straw mat to sleep on. Think about it… Have you ever slept on a mat in prison before, a mat that barely keeps out the cold of the concrete floor underneath? No, I didn’t think so. Now think of sleeping like that for nine years before a few more items of furniture are added.  It makes me shudder, I don’t know about you.
Have you ever felt lonely and isolated before? For many years Nelson was allowed one visit and one item of mail every six months. Newspapers were a forbidden item, and he was locked in solitary confinement on several occasions for possessing smuggled news clippings.

Things did get slightly better during the later years of his confinement, but can you imagine undergoing those conditions for just a few years. I personally marvel that he survived those twenty-seven years and he was in his seventies before he was finally released. We didn’t even mention the harsh labour of breaking rocks into gravel on a daily basis.

I can only postulate that the Lord had need of him and therefore kept him alive and in good health until the appointed time.

It reminds one of when the Israelites were slaves in Egypt and endured bitter treatment until the time that the Father God had designated.

Freedom Finally Comes
The days of incarceration must have definitely seemed endless to Mandela and his fellow freedom fighter prisoners but somebody was ticking off the days. A God who knew he could trust Nelson to do the right think had everything worked out to the minutest detail just like He always does. I tend to believe that the Father God must have had many nocturnal chats with Mr Mandela, creating in him a new heart, a heart after the things of our Saviour.
And when it was time it was time and there was no going back. If a P. W. Botha refused to cooperate then he would be replaced by an F. W. de Klerk. The day of freedom must surely come and it did.

On the 11th of February 1990 Nelson Mandela left Victor Verster Prison, to which he had been moved in 1998, a free man. The event and his subsequent speech were televised worldwide. This was however the beginning of a long drawn out process to secure an election that would culminate in majority rule.

What Did He Do With His Freedom?
It is said that old habits die hard, some such habits don’t die at all and pockets of violence continued to rock South Africa, but Mandela was set on a peaceful resolution of processes. Many within the African National Congress (ANC) and other black parties/groups considered his approach weak, but Nelson was adamant that South Africa belonged to all South Africans regardless of colour or creed.

Despite what he had gone through in his life and times Nelson Mandela was on a mission of peace and reconciliation. When he eventually became the leader of the majority elected government he attempted to create the broadest possible coalition in his cabinet. He was about inclusion, notwithstanding the fact his people had been excluded for years.

Nelson Mandela oversaw the formation of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to investigate crimes committed under apartheid by both the government and the ANC, appointing Desmond Tutu as its chair. To prevent the creation of martyrs, the Commission granted individual amnesties in exchange for testimony of crimes committed during the apartheid era. Dedicated in February 1996, it held two years of hearings detailing rapes, torture, bombings, and assassinations, before issuing its final report in October 1998. Mandela praised the Commission’s work, stating that it “had helped us move away from the past to concentrate on the present and the future”.

Forgiveness Seemed to be His Watchword!
Through all these difficult, harsh and very painful circumstances Nelson seemed to have just one word on his mind ‘forgiveness’.

Forgiveness it seems a simple harmless word but is often so hard to implement. It is often so hard to truly forgive and move on. To genuinely reconcile, not hold the dreadful past against your adversaries, instead to let it go and actually work together for the good of other people, for the good of communities, for the good of a nation.

Some will say Mandela had a large heart, I don’t doubt it, but to me it seems more of a heart after the Father God. I strongly believe that Mr Nelson Mandela must have drawn on and received strength from the forgiving power of Almighty God.

Some of us haven’t spoken to our neighbours in years, not since that altercation about the fence or some other matter. And of course we are too ‘big’ to be the first to break the ice. We make a point of actively avoiding one colleague or another rather than supposingly looking weak by being the first to say hi, after the words we had, sometime in the past, over what, we can’t really remember.

Forgiveness is not easy, I know that first hand and Mandela was probably among the limited few who could have proposed it in the Rainbow nation that had more or less had its heart ripped out.

Others would have had a flurry of sarcastic questions thrown at them:

Did your son die?
Was your livelihood ruined?
Did you almost die in prison?
Were some of the best years of your life spent behind bars?
Have you ever endured solitary confinement?
Was your marriage ruined?

To all of these questions and more Nelson Mandela would have answered in the affirmative.
I imagine that many South Africans would have longed to avoid the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and gone about their lives holding their hurts on their arms, flaring into flames at the slightest provocation.

Strong Men Forgive
However, when they looked up and saw ‘Madiba’s’ example (as he was often fondly called), they didn’t have much choice except to down weapons and take up the perfume of peace.

Mandela wasn’t perfect, many of us would have loved him to be, we would have really been able to go to town with our articles – a man so gentle that butter didn’t melt in his mouth – but that wasn’t him. He was like the rest of us a mere mortal, who took many a wrong turn in his time and said many a thing that made him blush, yes, a blush so strong that it showed through his dark skinned face.

He didn’t however dwell on the mistakes instead he plodded on trusting that he could and would make a worthwhile difference.

This is 2014 and sadly Nelson Mandela and many others didn’t get to see the sun rise on this glorious New Year. They’ve served their time, done what they could and are trusting for a nod of approval from their creator.

True we are not all Mandela’s; I for one wouldn’t want to be incarcerated for twenty-seven years I know I wouldn’t survive it. But we can all have the spirit of forgiveness.

If we can hold on to forgiveness throughout 2014 I’m sure we will be the better for it.

When insults, hurts, pains, lies, mud and mischief are thrown at us if we can retaliate with forgiveness I’m positive our lives will be the better for it.

Yes, the world lost an icon in 2013 in the person of Nelson Mandela, but our world will truly be a better place for his having visited if his spirit of forgiveness lives on in our hearts, our minds and our actions.

May your 2014 be all you wish it to be!

“SELFIE”

The English language is indeed dynamic, over the years ‘thou’ has become ‘you’ and ‘saith’ has been transformed into the simple ‘say’.

The dot.com generation seems to be particularly ingenious in coming up with new words. One cannot fault them however; technology is itself so dynamic that new words do need to be continually ‘manufactured’ to describe the rapidly moving technology feats.

‘Selfie’ I understand is one of a few words that have just been officially recognised by the Oxford Dictionary (or should I say the people responsible for keeping the dictionary up to date). Anyway Selfie is now an official English word, I don’t know if the queen is pleased but whoever coined it can give himself/herself a pat on the back. Shame it wasn’t me…

I guess the next question is; what does it mean? For people like me who are not totally glued to social media and the going on’s there the glue is definitely in the word itself. This is what I found under selfie in the Online Oxford Dictionary:

selfie

Pronunciation: /ˈsɛlfi/

(also selfy)

noun (plural selfies)

informal

  • a photograph that one has taken of oneself, typically one taken with a smartphone or webcam and uploaded to a social media website: occasional selfies are acceptable, but posting a new picture of yourself every day isn’t necessary

 

The last phrase did make me chuckle, all selfie addicts should please take note.

I’m assuming I’m having a bad hair day and therefore cannot add a selfie of my own to this monologue but why am I going on about the novel word in the first place?

As far as I’m concerned selfies are okay, I mean nobody can force me to view their workmanship if I’m not inclined to, but selfie does seem to be a very near cousin of selfish.
Selfish? Yea, selfish as in ‘I’, ‘me’, and ‘myself’. I mean why would anyone want to continuously spend ages taking their own portrait only to then upload it to so called social network sites. I mean apart from one’s own picture is there nothing else worth taking?

I also feel that social networks, as good as the concept is are actually making a lot of people anti-social. Many spend hours on end typing away to friends some of whom they have never met or seen in person and yet fail to interact with their neighbours, colleagues or classmates.

Apart from the virtual world many are becoming loners, they interact with people online and not much else. I believe that selfies originated out of necessity, no one else is available to take your picture so you take it yourself. In its self this is not a bad thing, you have the smart phone or webcam so why not if not.

When we look at the whole picture however we have to ask is this isolation really a good thing. I mean isolating oneself from the physical realm and spending a lot of time Online in a virtual world. A virtual world that is so often harsh, uncomforting and even cruel. We’ve all heard of cyber bullying and how some youngsters have been pushed to suicide by faceless people who exist only in their virtual worlds. We can and should ask, didn’t anybody (parents, carers, siblings, etc.) notice something wasn’t right before it was too late…Maybe people were too busy interacting with their tablets and smart phones and uploading selfies?

So you upload a selfie today and tomorrow you take another one and you begin to compare.

This scenario reminds me of 2 Corinthians 10 verse 12:

We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.

Man is a social animal, or should I say humankind is made up of social beings. God gave Eve to Adam, because it was not good that he (Adam) should be alone.

Selfies, social media and innovative technology products are indeed an integral part of our modern world. However these products and systems are not an alternative to physical human contact that we all need to live happy and balanced lives.

By all means upload your selfie, but then get out there and interact, check on the people around you how are they bearing up. Get someone else to take your picture for a change and then return the favour.

Go on, get out there and smile to someone who isn’t on a screen for once.  :)

Let me sign off so I can heed my own advice.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES!

Growing up in what is termed ‘a developing nation’ I saw first-hand how women can be treated as second class citizens.

I wouldn’t say I’m a feminist mostly because the word feminism has often been misunderstood which is not surprising considering that Wikipedia lists at least ten different types of feminism.

I do however believe in equal opportunities for men and women.

Women In Scripture
In the scriptures we see women taking on diverse roles in different walks of life and performing credibly well. Take Esther who was ready to risk her life for what she believed. Deborah a judge of Israel, who, along with the warrior Jael led the Israelites to victory. Dorcas was a humble philanthropist and charity worker. Lois a Godly grandmother along with Eunice a Godly mother brought their children up in the way of the Lord. And there are many other women in the bible that left their mark in the sands of time.
With all these women taking on various roles I believe God trusts the wonderful ladies to take on any role they are up to and doesn’t discriminate on the basis of sex.

21st Century Women
Fast forward to 2013 and where do women stand in the global scheme of things, where do they stand at national levels and what is their status on the home front?

Sadly it seems that humankind unlike their maker often struggle to allow women to take on roles which in their minds are the preserve of their male counterparts. We deny women opportunities just because they are women and even when we grudgingly allow them to have a go we pay them a lower wage just to remind them that at the end of the day they are ‘only women’.

Sometimes it’s blatantly declared “women’s rights if they exist at all are extremely minimal!” How else can we explain the fact that women are still not licenced to drive cars in Saudi Arabia. On Saturday the 26th of October 2013 the women of Saudi decided to protest and a few of them who were bold enough put the key into the ignition and moved the car. But big brother was watching and since they couldn’t be sure of having their day in court if big brother didn’t like what he saw they decided to go back to their ‘place’ behind the driver.
A Saudi social activist, Hisham Fageeh, shared his support for the protest using a satirical, a cappella song based on Bob Marley’s hit, No Woman, No Cry, that’s quickly going viral. (Check the video out online just search for “No Woman, No Drive”).

Women Standing Up For Women
Even the UK’s BBC is doing its bit for the female folk and has an initiative called ‘100 Women Season’ which aims to highlight the risks, challenges and opportunities that women face every day, across the globe.
Women like Mrs Cherie Blair and Chelsea Clinton are guest-editing programmes and showing their support for their kinswomen.
Mrs Blair has spoken about how she was treated as an unequal when she started out as a young lawyer in a male dominated firm especially when she decided to add to her role as a lawyer the God given role of a mother.

One thing that Cherie Blair said that definitely rang true in my ears was the need for women to do all that was in their ability to financially empower themselves.

It’s Not a War
I do not believe that women need to fight the men folk, I don’t believe in the ‘battle of the sexes’, we are not at war. I don’t particularly believe women have any point to prove, whoever cannot see the worth of women probably needs some eye salve, maybe they should visit SpecSavers or some other optician. I do however firmly believe in equal opportunities for women. I believe a woman’s ‘place’ is wherever she chooses to put herself and not where some male chauvinist thinks she should be.

Men and women are not in competition, we complement each other and truth be told we can’t live without each other. We have different roles in society which we need to fulfil and we need to fulfil these roles whilst having utmost regard for each other.

Women need to be empowered, empowered financially to enable them to fulfil their potential and contribute all that the Lord has for them to contribute to make our world a better place.

Let’s look around us; in most places where women are seen but not heard that society tends to be seen but no progression seems to be heard of from them, I’m just thinking aloud here…
But it seems to make sense doesn’t it, whether we like it or not women tend to play a greater role in the development of the next generation. And if these same women are put down and oppressed what type of society do we expect?

In Genesis chapter two God gave Eve to Adam to be a companion to him, not as a second rate citizen.

What Am I Trying To Say?
So what am I about?
I’m about freedom for women to live their lives the way they desire
Freedom for women to have opportunities and to embrace them
Freedom for women to aspire
Freedom for women to achieve their full potential
Freedom for women to have financial independence if they desire it
Freedom for women to be ‘stay-at-home mums’ if they wish
Freedom for women to break the glass ceilings and rise to the top of the ‘ladders’
Freedom for women to get behind the wheel and drive cars, planes and rockets!
Freedom for women to be whoever and whatever they want to be!

God didn’t put women down, neither should we!

 

What are your views?

LolaA thinking aloud…

 

 

 

 

Different Senses
Last night I caught some snippets of a television program where a lady said she could converse with dogs. Not conversing in words as humans do but via telepathy, the dogs communicated to her in images she said. She admitted to using a sixth sense, in terms of the fact that she was not using one of the natural 5 senses, i.e. she was operating outside the natural sphere, she had entered the realm of the spiritual.

My understanding is that in the spiritual realm there is a whole parallel universe. It is vast and it can be monstrous if you get sucked in on the wrong side of the sphere.

Good and Bad
In the physical world we have Good and we have Bad:

Good Deeds and Bad Deeds

Good People and Bad People

Good Health and Bad Health

Good Vibes and Bad Vibes

Good Friends and Bad Friends

Good Marks and Bad Marks

Good Governments and Bad Governments

Good Success and Bad Success

More often than not the good and the bad are poles apart.

In the spiritual real there is the Good sphere where the Father God dwells and leads His people to constant victory. And there is the Bad sphere where the arch enemy Satan dwells ruling over his prisoners and forcing them into a war that was lost thousands of years ago. Between these two spheres there is a large gulf that separates and disallows intermingling the story of Lazarus is testimony to this. (Luke 16:19-31).

It is very possible that the ‘animal psychologist’ as she styled herself was able to communicate with dogs and a host of other animals. However she may have unwittingly opened herself up to a very dangerous, dark and uncanny world, a world where the end result is never good.

If we want to use a sixth, seventh or eighth sense, if we want to get into the realm of the supernatural then our best bet is to check out the author of all senses. The Father God the Creator. He created the universe; He made the heavens and the earth and all that is within them.

A Poem
This short poem is in honour of His greatness:

Father, you stand by me night and day
You hear me when I pray

You know the number of hairs on my head
You grant me sweet dreams when I lay on my bed

May I showcase your glory
As I tell of your wonderful story

You made the heavens and the earth
Yes, you spoke and you gave birth

You’re the awesome creator
Yes, you made the mighty alligator

You formed the honey making bumble bee
And little oh humble me.

The universe is held steady by your hand
You sent your Son Jesus to make a stand

As far as you’re concerned it’s all about love
Thus your down payment the Holy Spirit, a dove

Dear friend you may shout in a bid to have your say
But I affirm to you, yesterday, today and forever, Jesus is the way!
