God Our Refuge

God is my refuge and strength,
My true present help in trouble;
Persevering at any length,
Pulling me out of the rubble.

I fear not though the earth gives way,
And mountains move into the sea;
Its waters roar as the waves sway,
Land trembles where it used to be.

There are rivers that streams made glad,
Of the holy habitation;
A city never to be sad,
For the Most High of Creation.

God is in the midst of the bride,
God will help her when morning dawns;
She shall continue to abide,
Inhabitants dancing like fawns.

Nations rage and kingdoms totter,
The earth melts as His voice utters;
Steam evaporates the water,
But the righteous the Lord buffers.

The Lord of Host is with us all,
God of Jacob our fortress;
A refuge catching our fall,
Comforting us when in distress.

Come, behold the works of the Lord,
How He brought earthly destruction;
Punishing all those who ignored,
He called to them for salvation.

He makes wars cease to end the earth,
He breaks bows and shatters the spear,
Burning desire for new birth,
The earth and Heaven disappear.

Be still and know that He is God,
Exalted amongst the nations;
Giving to Him honor and laud,
And making them new creations.

Fettling The Garden

The IMac´s asleep now
For most of the day,
All the Winter distractions
Have been put away.
The lawn´s covered with leaves
The grass all muddy and wet
The hedge hasn´t started it´s
New Spring growth spurt yet.

It´s long and it´s tall
Always a bit of a test
To get its first trim in before
The birds start to nest.
At least three Blackbird pair
Keep using it each year
Not be long now before
They´ll start to appear.

The grass mower´s been cleaned
Its batteries have been on charge
When they´re stored for the Winter
They soon start to discharge.
I put a small pool in in Summer
The plants have all survived
I noticed just yesterday that
The first frog has arrived.

The days are drawing out,
Soon British Summer Time,
Spring soon be back and
Temperatures start to climb.
Nothing quite so satisfying
As a cool alfresco beer
When the garden´s been fettled
And warm evenings are here.

Yes , the garden´s been fettled,
All the plants are in bloom
And the garden furniture is now
Part of an extended sitting room,
Sitting out there in the open
When Summer evenings are long
Listening to the whispering trees
And the pleasant rich bird song.





Living in a horrible household. Baring unspoken domestic abuse and violations. She file a petition with the courts. A decree for judicial determination granting her emancipation.

In his late teens he knew of a young neighborhood Ho. She was emacipated at age 15. Becoming a 16 year old mother and welfare queen. This occurred in the year that ended MLK's dream

She carried pampers slung from her shoulder in a bag. The Crew passed her around like a dirty rag. No one keeping her for long though. Just a memory from a long long time ago.
Abu Lateef Ali Babatunde
´ 2023

About a young immature adolescent girl feeling hurt and neglected by her boyfriend.
She thought having sex with his friend would hurt him. She didn't know that his Crew often passed girls around among themselves. One pretending to sympathize with her plight. Not knowing it was a routine practiced among them. The immorality of Western society begins at an early age. They say you never really know a person until you live with them. Marriage before sex was once a standard. In Islam it is still the standard. In many As´an and African Nation it is still the standard. Arrange marriages are even better. Teen dating, adult dating didn't always go on in the West. It had a starting decade. Before dating there was courting. A male suitor would visit the young maiden's parents for permission to court her. There was no such thing as dating. The young lady would not be alone with the suitor unless she had a Chaperone. It is still like that among Muslims world wide. Same yourself, families and society from ruin. Learn about Allah's plan that brings peace and happiness through out all lands but first brings it about im you. ´ juvenile ´ promiscuity ´ downfall ´ of ´ society

Have A Very Lovely Day!

~One Door Closes But Another He Shall Open ~
( Serpentine Poem )



Try to relax the whole day at least try.
So many things in mind, so many not going right and that's so.
Love just comes and goes, and that sadly is the way with so many people and Love.
Nothing we can do to change peoples minds at times, sometimes nothing.
Knowing in my heart that I've done the right thing in the eyes of God, it is enough and fine , just knowing.
Anyone is free to come and go, to give their love or not to anyone.
Accepting in our heart it is time to go is hard and from others this accepting.
Can't stop sometimes so many things, we can try but in the end many times just can't.
Some things that happens in life can be a blessing at times, at least just some.
Thankful to God for when a door closes, another one He shall open and for that I'm so thankful.

So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)

*'For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
John 3:16 (NIV)

* Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer
Romans 12: 12 ( NIV )

*The Lord will fight for you, and you have only to be silent.'
Exodus 14: 13 ( NIV )

*For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against
powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this World, against spiritual
wickedness in the high places.
Ephesians 6:12 (NIV)

* I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4: 13 ( NIV )

*This is the message we have heard from Him and proclaim to you, that
God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
1 John: 5

*What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?
Matthew 16:26 (NIV)

1. This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.

2. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.

3. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good.

4. Traitors, heady, high*minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.

5. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

~2 Timothy 3 * 5 * King James Version (KJV) ~

*Read: Matthew 24: 1*50


A salvation prayer, known by many Christians as a 'Sinners Prayer,' is a prayer one would say to repent from sin, ask God for forgiveness, confess belief in Jesus Christ, and accept him as Lord and Savior. Saying a salvation prayer is the first step in your personal relationship with God.
If you believe the Bible offers truth about the way of salvation, but you have not taken the step to become a Christian, it's as simple as praying this prayer. You can pray by yourself, using your own words. There is no special formula. Just pray from your heart to God, and he will save you. If you feel lost and don´t know what to pray, here´s a salvation prayer that you can follow:

Dear Lord,
I admit that I am a sinner. I have done many things that don´t please you. I have lived my life for myself only. I am sorry, and I repent. I ask You to forgive me.
I believe that You died on the cross for me to save me. You did what I could not do for myself. I come to You now and ask you to take control of my life; I give it to You. From this day forward, help me to live every day for You and in a way that pleases You.
I love you, Lord, and I thank You that I will spend all eternity with You.

If you have just prayed this prayer, congratulations!:))

You have received Christ as your Savior and have made the best decision you will ever make´one that will change your life forever!



~Behold, children are heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward'.

~Author's Notes:


* Thought Of The Day *


* 1 John 2:15*17*

John warns us not to love the world or the things in it. But what is the world? The apostle isn't talking about the material realm, so there's no need to deprive ourselves of everything we enjoy in life. Rather, he is reminding us that every good desire can be perverted by sinful longings and pride.

The nature of the world system is seen in the behaviors, attitudes, and ambitions of our culture:

Immorality. Our society seeks to gratify lust in ways that God has forbidden. Immorality has even entered our homes through the internet and television.

Greed. The culture is driven by a desire for wealth, material possessions, fame, and power´and some people lie, cheat, steal, or kill to get what they want.

Pride. People are lovers of self and want to be seen as better than others. It's common today to portray oneself falsely on social media in order to be admired.

Despite the sinful condition of our culture, we shouldn't be discouraged. God is greater than the world's power to entice, and His purposes aren't thwarted by sin. He is able to guide us through the darkness as we trust and follow Him.

By Dr. Charles Stanley.


What we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will give us later.

´ Romans 8:18 (TLB)*

Father, help me to go beyond the afflictions and tribulations of our age, and to look toward the inheritance reserved for us in heaven.

By Evangelist Dr. Billy Graham


*Reflect & Pray *

There's no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to
do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

*1 John 4: 18

When do you find yourself feeling pressured to believe fear is greater than love? How might your relationships with others change if you believed you don´t need to be afraid?

Loving God, thank You for Your Love. Help us to trust in and follow Your Light and Love even when the way gets dark.


~Prayer Of The Day*

*Lord Jesus, as You sat looking over Jerusalem, You wept.
Give me the same compassion for those who have not accepted Your remedy and been BORN AGAIN.

~Today's Reflection~


* Bless is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
*Jeremiah 17:7

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power."

* Abraham Lincoln *

"Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love."

*Francis of Assisi*

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside,
dreams, who looks inside, awakes." *

* Carl Jung, Letters *



Worth The Wait

Would you let me love you like this…

What a mashup she is
Like a Spanish arcoíris
Accent so fine
No wonder my vocabs a mess
Let me try to refocus

I close my eyes to escape
Even here my muse
Makes my pulse quake
She smiles
Those pearls; those lips
Stills time
Out comes no sound

Who'd imagine
I'd be scared of beautiful
Entranced by
Her pretty round browns
I gotta learn to swim soon
Cause constantly
In them
I willingly drown

This immortal ish
Not my style
I'm accompanied by her smile
In this cruel world

Her beauty
Redefines that which is true
Will she finally let me capture it
In mental portraits
My sanity pleas
No longer contained
As I touch her skin

Note the importance
Of her octave’s climb
Chills down my spine
As I reach and slowly
Pull her out of her mind
She pushes me in for a taste
Oh, what a duet we make

¥☼MOI☼¥ 31 Jan 23

.Like when I see the moon lit in your eyes
And you pull me in
So I can trace the constellations
No longer chasing expectations
Love you till you realize
Your beauty; your heart; your soul is unrivaled
Love you enough to straighten your spirals
Love you like you do me
More than enough to know you can live again
More than enough to know you're my passion

Please don't mind the wait.
