Gossip Rumour

Posted on

Encounter gossips and rumours
Choose to
Decide to
HALT

The spreading of the
Infectious words
Scandalous stories

Refuse own participation
Take courage
Being brave enough to

Speak and declare
Don’t want to hear
Don’t care to repeat
What is being said

Such actions help to
Stop a rumour
Stop gossip

Before it spreads
Infecting others
Cause more pain


Inspiration On: Monday, 31 July 2017
Edited On: Saturday, 5 August 2017

Being a quiet person, there are times I repeat on what is being said. Parrot. I served in the administrative role in my previous job. A family business where family matters and business matters were mixed. I believe in getting along with everybody. When they have issues with each other, they pour out to me. I feel so grateful to be trusted and believed. However, I can feel drained. Because all the word attached to me and can effect my perception towards the spoken party. Thus I lose my temper towards one of the spoken party. I feel convicted inside. Thus I met that spoken party to reconcile. That spoken party is forgiving and we agreed to work well for the company. Thank God for the great relationship. Sometimes, when I go somewhere and passed by the office, I just go to the office to say hi to everyone. The moral value of the story is: be careful of the spoken words from the other party. Check but don’t let it attach onto you. Karen Ehman (the author of ‘Keep it Shut’) commends a quiet girl who can speak up for herself and others. I need to learn from that quiet girl when and how to answer. A few months ago, a friend repeats some rumour about an actress. I’m surprised with my answer. It may not be the case. Most likely those people are jealous of her being famous. Once I watch her performance, instantly I can sense she is a great mimicker. Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Tackle


Inspiration On: Saturday, 6 May 2017 at 9:50pm

I attend a night service. The preacher shares about the importance of prayer through the power of the Holy Spirit. Altar call welcomes everyone to receive God’s help and blessing. Thus I respond to the altar call for God’s help in my life. In my heart, I ask the Lord for forgiveness upon me. Someone doctored my resume so that the government can give me grant. The course teacher mentioned his company needs help. I respond that I would like to be part of the project. However, after I attend the 3 days course, he forgets his promise. I don’t want to get into trouble with the law. I ask the Lord for discernment and wisdom. I will not believe into people’s empty promises of job opportunities. This happened outside of Japan.

Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Power in Holy Spirit

Posted on

Conviction of sins
Confess our sins
Receive forgiveness of sins
Sins are forgiven
Forgiveness from the living God

The dwelling of the Holy Spirit
We seek the presence of the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit dwells within us
Chasing the interaction with God
The quiet moments with the Lord

Enable and empower us to
Acknowledge our sins
Deal with our sins
Grant us power to overcome temptations
Detect the wiles of the devil

Prevent us from
Sinning against the Lord
Prevent us from
Trespassing against the Lord

Victory from sins
Through the
Power of the Holy Spirit
By trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ

Revised On: Sunday, 14 May 2017 at 4:17pm

Great to listen to the preacher to preach about seeking the company of the Lord through our quiet moments. That reminds me of my enjoyment time with my ex-mentors and close friends. I particularly enjoy their presence through our activities. Oh. I feel so relieved of the pressure from my cell leader. Lord Jesus, thank You. Because she wants to see God to move powerfully through miracles. Inside, I cry a lot to the Lord. How can I stand this kind of request? And I tell God that I am weak and easily get affected. So I tell God I have made many mistakes and need a godly mentor. Suddenly, the preacher validates my upset. He preaches if people seeks the presence of the Holy Spirit just to get His blessings, it will chase the Holy Spirit away. Finally, I feel so happy. I can feel the Holy Spirit is happy. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Courage In The Midst Of Crisis

Posted on

Obstacles and adversities
Filling own path
Fear overwhelms own soul

Trust in the Lord Jesus
In all my ways
Acknowledge Him

Thus instill
Courage in the midst of crisis
Enable self to be more assertive

Awaiting His instructions
Jump to the next destination
Resting in His love


Inspiration On: Tuesday, 7 August 2016 around 4pm

Current life situation seems improving. However, many people persuade me to extend the contract. I thank the Lord for the strength to speak out not to get their hopes high on me. Knowing the person whom the Lord anoints to guide me in career and business is running a trustworthy business. This reminds me of Gideon who needs God to confirm the anointing and victory. (Judges 6-8) God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Ability to discernComes through

Spending time with my Lord

In His Word, prayer and ministry
The Spirit of understanding enters

Through the power of the Holy Spirit

Bringing to remembrance

The part for me to apply into my life

<hr> m<p> Inspiration On: Monday, 29 February 2016
Thank God and thankful for today’s trainer bring the Google cardboard and let me have the test. He wants to use it for e-learning education. Lord, if this is from You, please grant me favour through him to get job opportunities. 
The Lord is rewiring me back to myself. When I hear him shares his life experiences in being emphatic, it reminds me of myself. Everybody has been telling me that they feel better after talking to me though I didn’t really talk much. So they appreciate my listening ears. I feel so grateful to my Lord Jesus Christ for the people He places at my life when I am thinking to totally change myself due to being lied and taken advantage. I still keep my values. Inside I feel like changing my personality to stop from being lied and taken advantage all the time. I understand the feeling of being put in a difficult position so I choose to make things easy for others to grow. There are those people who return to pluck for more fur or backstab. I have enough of such people.
My parents and brother voice out their frustrations towards my husband and the Myanmar maid. They keep on instigating me to tell him to teach the maid how to cook for tomorrow. It is his decision and choice. I feel that I can’t breathe at home. The test is right that I perform my best in a harmonious environment. No wonder my heart is not at home. And I can’t focus and concentrate to care Huey and do my job. I feel frustrated by my choice to listen to my parents to get married. Instead of being appreciated and able to work forgetter, my life is in a difficult situation. 

Wish you all have good days and thank you.

Heartbroken Children’s Voices

Posted on

A pair of large steel scissor
Cut through
A branch

Seeking immediate remedy
Only to be disregarded
Anyway a broken branch is irreparable

Continue the breaking
Every broken branches
Shoots more arrows into my heart

Such sights
Tear two hearts into pieces
My son’s tears continuously roll down

Total broken pieces
produce
Broken hearts and feelings

Fatherly figure tend to hurt
Children’s hearts
Motherly figure cares child’s heart

Earthly fathers
Why do you have to exasperate the child?
Thus impairs Abba Father’s heart

Earthly mothers
Why do you have to spoil child’s heart?
Thus gives wrong signal

Earthly parents and grandparents
Be more cooperative
Stop confusing the obedient children

Inspiration On: Wednesday, 10 February 2016

My dad sits on a chair and opens my son’s blue rainbow Doraemon umbrella. Suddenly, he removes the rainbow Doraemon design cloth. I thought he is repairing it. Suddenly, he breaks it. My son cries. I attempt to stop him from continuing to do so. He doesn’t care. My mum appears and is shocked. She quickly points that is not the spoilt umbrella. Then she takes out my spoilt blue umbrella. However, dad’s words towards my son are extremely hurtful, “You have many other favourite toys. This is nothing. Anyway one branch has been broken.” Cut another branch pieces. My son’s and my heart breaks. That’s so hurting. The more he breaks, the more my heart breaks. Is that how he did when I was young? He still says he wants his children to be united.

However, now I beg to differ. My siblings lack of cooperation is inherited from my parents’ siblings generation. When the Lord bless me through partnerships with the same vision, mission and values, I have to exercise partial judgment. My partners and I shouldn’t let our family members enter into the company to promote cooperative spirit and teamwork. Most family members tend to cause the downhill of cooperativeness. Can provide them financially, but not involved into the partnership company. I can only thank the Lord’s grace and mercy to find favour from the higher management corporate people including my business mentor.

At night, my dad quickly tells me that my son plays with ice cube. I immediately step into the kitchen and I question my son, “Do you play with ice cube?” He nods. Then he asks, “is there an evidence?” My heart aches. Again I question, he answers, “yes.” Instantly, I WhatsApp Uncle WY, “My heart aches when my dad tells me to confront my son for playing ice cube. He nods then begins to say, “is there an evidence?” Please pray for the Lord’s will be done. I feel so speechless.” I really surrender my husband to God. I give up to God. I want my son to grow to be strong in God’s values. In the end, after I repeatedly seek God to forgive then I confess to him that I’m the one who wants to die. I feel so much better. Then he compliments me for doing the right thing. Next he comforts me to laughter as the best medicine.

God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Dom DiFrancesco’s poetry at http://blackandwrite.wordpress.com/2013/12/23/at-this-joyous-time-of-year-acrostic/ reminded me of the scripture about the seven deadly sins God hates.

Inspiration On: Monday, 4 January 2016

Being overworked can cause burnt out. Today’s technological era place more burden onto the body system. When we do too much for God, it can produce a different result. It drains our energy. Thus I conclude who to give help. I need to take care of my mental and health first. Then I can serve God more productively. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Blamed Perspectives

Posted on

Speak your opinion on this issue
I speak out
Only to be labeled selfish
Immediate suggest to overwrite
I relent out of care
Why should parents do so?

Oppressed Israelites wanted God to deliver
The Lord sent Moses and Aaron
Only to leave them alone
Immediate blamed them during harsher oppression
God delivered them out of Egypt
Why should the Israelites worship idols?
Provoke the Lord’s jealousy


Inspiration On: Sunday, 27 December 2015

In the morning, dad asks my opinion to cook the a vegetable to instruct the helper. My decision is to steam it. Immediately, he labels me selfish and blurts out his own opinion. Later, my son doesn’t like it. He never bothers to understand me. Then he suggests to use it for fried rice. I just reply that I’m okay with it. Does he ever care about my feelings? My son is overseas with his dad. Of course, I speak out my thinking when ask. I begin to see the main problem and many perspectives from this issue. Parents can’t stop voicing out their opinions onto their children due to going through many experiences. Pride seeps into their hearts. Jump to conclusion based on their sights. They have forgotten the importance to sit and listen to understand their own children.

After I do stretching from Kikuchi Taisou DVD, I begin to write. Writing is part of my discipline to improve my expression muscle. Noisy music comes out of my parents’ room. Suddenly, my dad stands at my door. He invites me to observe him to cook fried rice. I reply him later. Again he labels me and speaks that I won’t learn. Now, I see the reason parents and children fight against one another. Parents are eager to force their opinions to their children. If the child belongs to the opinionated category, they are labeled bad temper. Another category who is quiet, they are labeled for not being decisive. They care about their parents feelings. Yet the parents tend to demand their own ways.

All these help me to see from many perspectives. And also the reason I lose my concentration.

Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Trust in the Lord

Pray to the Lord
Trusting the Lord
With hearts and minds
In everything
Doing own best

I will deliver thee
Thou shalt not be given into
The hand of men
Whom thou art afraid

I will surely deliver thee
Thou shalt not fall by the sword
Thy life shall be a prey unto thee
Because thou hast put thy trust in Me

Saith the Lord


Inspiration On: Thursday, 25 December 2015

Jeremiah 39 helps me to understand about God. The Lord spoke to the Israelites through the prophet Jeremiah. Second and third stanza comes from verse 17 to 18. These two verses speak to me the importance to trust in the Lord during my tumultuous times. Likewise, the Lord continually deliver those who put their trust in Him. This really comforts my heart to continually trust in Him. Proverbs 3 also explain the importance of trusting the Lord in whatever we do.

Inspiration On: Friday, 18 December 2015

SS asks me whether I am afraid of being alone with her. I say no because I am sketching. Deep down I feel awkward for my business mentor to tell me that SS is my spiritual mother. Misa and her listen to my problems. She shares the reason she wants me to continuously come to her shop. It is meant to encourage the oppressed to be encouraged. I feel so happy to see my business mentor coming to SS hair salon. Today, she looks approachable. I am shocked she brings the wrong cream. It is body and hand cream. She is supposedly to bring the hair colour cream. Misa points it out. After trim her hair, we have a good conversation. My husband said that I am like a woodblock. They also ask whether I enjoy making love. I say no. Then I listen to the Lord to confess my sin to them that I wear boys clothes. I begin to share my business mentor’s words, “you are not a woman” makes feel guilty. It reminds me of my childhood. I wear boy’s clothes. After I wear then it was passed to my brother. When I want to pay her for quasha, she doesn’t want it. Appreciate her quasha on my head, neck and shoulders. The clock struck 6:30pm and she returns home. SS and Misa listens to my issues. I also share my observation and testify God’s goodness. Then SS has dinner with me and listen to my issues.

Glory To Jesus Through My Infirmities

Abba Father
Thank You to receive me back into
Your family again

Living a restarting life
May Your will be done
A ministry to the weak

A healing ministry
Guide me in all Your ways
Teach me to speak

Lead me
Always in Your hands
You are ahead of me

You are breaking
The generational curses
In my family through me

May it be unto me
Show me the way to bring glory to You
Glory to Your name through my infirmities


Inspiration On: Saturday, 12 December 2015

I bring my son to SS’s hair salon at Far East Plaza then she brings us to the new church God is leading me to. Thankful for her to guide me no need to bring trolley. It is time for my bonding with him through hand holding rather than I waste time to hold the burden. So I need to remove it and reduce the things in my bag. Now she needs to go for nerve test due to carry too many things during her motherhood. Oh no! Should I go for nerve test? I really appreciate her to tell me so. After the worship and sermon time, SS brings me for the altar call and whispers to the intercessor to pray against the spirit of oppression and depression upon me. After the church service, she takes my photo with my son. Is God healing my migraine? Thank You, Lord.

The sermon topic is ‘Beyond Expectation’ where God can change a murderous Saul of Tarsus into Paul through an encounter with Jesus. Once he becomes Paul, he suffers for Christ. Tabitha, the widow, who cared for the women died is resurrected through the apostle Peter. That comforts my heart Jesus can do more miracles in my life and even my husband.

Thanks for reading my poetry and hope this poetry minister and bless you.

Inspiration On: Sunday, 29 November 2015

The BBQ celebration at Lita’s house is enjoyable. While I am helping others to peel the pomegranate into tiny pieces, they identify it as GMO fruit. Then my business mentor’s words echo in my mind. The diet is the one that cause cancer. So I share about the organic farming that my business mentor volunteers. I encourage them to check it out. If I have the future opportunity to arrange BBQ party, I want to change the provided diet. Few people eat the cooked vegetables that I bring. Humans are prone to consume unhealthy diets.

May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

Fulfill My Vow

With the little amount
Deep down my heart
Ready to fulfill my vow
Closing my bank account
Intend to use the willing amount
As the business capital
Surprised with the
Blessings and favour on
Part time job and an office for startup company
Speechless of God’s hands

Inspiration On: Saturday, 28 November 2015

I just don’t understand God. All I think is to fulfill my vow to the Lord with my own little finance. And I am ready to close my bank account. Strange to be given part time job and office space. Is it not the time yet to do business? Yes. I make mistakes in my part time job for missing out some part of the instructions. Glad for my boss to tell me not to do anything except preparing the sales order and ask another part-time staff for inventory clarification. It’s bad to to be under depression. Now I begin to understand those who are under depression.

May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

Inspiration On: Friday, 27 November 2015

Since my business mentor doesn’t use her iPhone 3S anymore, might as well use it for my ministry work and mobile wifi hotspot. It took me two weeks of thoughts then turn into courage to ask her. If she doesn’t want to sell, it’s not a problem. She has her own right not to sell it. I’m prepared to be rejected. I can understand too. So that I can keep track on the cellular data usage. She suggests to use MyStarHub app. I explain that the app is for personal use. But my mobile broadband is under business plan. The service provider doesn’t support such featured for business plan.

Courageously, I ask her via WhatsApp, “Since you don’t use your iPhone 3S, I am wondering. May I buy your iPhone 3S for $50?”

“Sure, but why do you need it? You can have it; no charge.” I am so surprised with her respond.

I explain, “Thanks. I need it for Internet hotspot. Currently, the wifi hotspot can’t show the data usage.”

She is baffled, “What Internet hotspot? You will be carrying 3 phones!!!”

“Wifi hotspot. Sorry for the mistaken expression. Oh yes.” I’m trying to express myself better.

She can’t see the logic behind my purpose, “Your phones can also receive wifi hotspot. Don’t see the logic.”

Rather than explain with words, I quickly respond, “I’ll explain further. It’s better to explain visually.”

“Unless there is great value add, I don’t want to be penny wise pound foolish.” is her feedback.

I understand her goodwill, “Understand. The problem is StarHub can’t give me the data usage I have used for the mobile data. My current wifi hotspot can’t give my data usage. I have to think another alternative way.”

Out of her goodwill, she suggests, “Have you tried My Starhub App?”

I’ve tried it many months ago to no avail so I answer her, “Yes. It’s for personal line but not for business mobile data plan.”

“Why did you register under business?” She wondered.

I explain, “I register under business because I use the Internet to do my business work. I need the secure connection for doing my work and protect my working data files. Free wifi can cause hackers to tap into my files.”

Since then there is no response from her. Now I begin to understand myself better. My actions are ahead of everyone. Dad’s thoughts and actions are ahead of everybody. Why am I like my dad to care others too much?

Now, I begin to understand my problem to often being misunderstood. Last year, I mentioned to my business mentor that WC gave his old MacBookAir. I forgot to say to her that I don’t mind to pay for the MacBookAir. Unexpectedly to be given.

IC tends to ask for free things for older electronic devices. However, I don’t mind to pay for the second hand electronic devices. It is others’ property. I need to respect their ownership and the cost they had paid to acquire those devices. If I’m in their position, I want to be respected and don’t want to be taken advantage. It hurts to be taken advantage. Many times I’m too soft hearted thus often being taken advantage.

May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

Whom To Associate

Posted on

Those whom we associate
Either point us to
Jesus Christ or devil

Godly values is imputed
Through Jesus Christ
Depending in His strength
Spending time to meet family in Christ
Edifying one another

Worldly values takes control
Focusing on the material world
Worldly voices are listened
Associating with those practice darkness
Deluding own presumptions
Thus create conflict

~ Tojiru Yoshiko

Focus On

Posted on

Depiction of kiss stated in the Bible
The gospel stated the betrayer kissed Jesus
Books afterwards stated holy kiss in love
Different people focus
Focus on
Different sides of the Bible
Rather than balancing it

Balance the two sides
To pursue godliness
Living in the truth
To flee from evil
Without giving the devil a foothold

~ Tojiru Yoshiko


Inspiration On: Saturday, 21 November 2015

Today, my husband wants to discuss about our son’s issue and wants me to call my dad. We discuss together. Dad discusses his mother’s psychological issue. Then he points out his own weaknesses and strengths then my husband’s. He can do work with his own hands than my husband. However, my husband is very good in talking but can’t do. My analysis is my dad can talk who encourages others to improve. But my husband doesn’t. He just wants to get his own way and is ready to remove those who get in his way. He dares to say I didn’t go to Sabah with him when his brother passed away two years ago. Then I scold him that he was the one who mentioned no need to go due our son was very young then.

I begin to speak up on my husband’s aching and cursing words. The church teaches to greet each other in kiss after quarrel. His judgments of me based from the Bible was Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus. However, the Bible mentioned to forgive each other and greet each other with kisses. Thus I do so to him. However, he interpreted it as going to betray him. When he massaged and nagged at my lifestyle, I lose my temper and share about upsets. When I make mistakes, he is ready to put me down. The correct ones are not being appreciated. When he wants to discuss with me about Huey, I am tired and want to rest early.

Throughout this, I begin to understand my husband and myself. I tend to see people’s good side and the learning to balance both sides of the Bible.

May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

Please The Lord

Obey His voice
Walk in His ways that He has commanded
Acknowledging own mistakes
Confess your sins
Receive correction
These please the Lord

Unwilling to disappoint BL, my body engine burns the midnight oil to complete the manuscript, sketch, character profile and animation script. However, the sketch is not produced. Mostly, only able to produce the writings part. Lord, I hope I can sketch it at her house. Thank You, Lord, for her. I really appreciate her kind gesture. When I am praying, mum misunderstands me whether there is no maid. I assure her not about that issue. Then I turn to the Bible for my daily devotional since I don’t sleep. The words sound so poetic. The Lord longs for His people to return to Him. It is a surprising fact to know and understand about Jesus. Great experience. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

The Power of Prayer Warriors

Power of Prayer Warriors
Seeking the Lord in prayer
Voicing out my needs of prayers
To the prayer warriors
Before the battle begins

Refuses to return home early
Attempt to concentrate on my deadline
Sketching on my sketch book
Then design impressions

Comforted feelings
Enter into the battlefield courageously
Reach to mutual conclusion in peace

Inspiration On: Monday, 16 November 2015

Everyone in my family informs me of the situation at home about the maid complaining to my husband. Before all these, strange to have the words prepared. Then they help me to learn to answer.

God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Dream from the father of lies
Attempt to deter me

Confess of my autism and needs of help
Share about social enterprise visions
Needing cell group for parents to bring own child

Being so appreciative and grateful for them
Introduce about autistic help
Psychologist and Counselling
Praying and healing for the sick
Baffle me for the Lord’s leading in my life
Their care for me to receive help
Next is my five years old son
May the Lord’s name be glorified

My business mentor’s ex-cell group leader pick me up at a train station then bring me to attend church service. The friends she introduces receive me, accept my autism and readily listen to my testimony. Surprisingly, I share my dilemma on the forgotten words to my business mentor causing her to join as my business partner.

Another sister in Christ listens to my seeing things problem whom the cell leader introduces. The visions and dreams that she encounters really come true. And also to highlight that my encounters remind her of her past. I never expect to be able to express myself clearer. Then I confess that God assures me in my business mentor because I almost develop sociophobia.

Today, I feel so grateful and humbled to receive prayer and assurances from the Lord. The message is about opposition from the evil one. I get a shock to be able to relate to it and see God’s hands in my life. Linda’s and other friends acceptance of me and to be heard. I don’t know that the church I am led to is so well-known and well-sought for their giftings. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Do As Unto The Lord

Posted on

Do As Unto The Lord
Throughout problems to find employment
Being revealed of the big business picture
Speechless throughout my family and friends life
Seeking to execute the business for the Lord
Hoping to provide job opportunities to the marginalized
Impossible with current financial constraints
Being labeled as a crazy fellow

A business friend becomes my new boss
Takes me in and provide a working space
Her dry hands look dry and tired
Knowing her needs to relief her burdens
That’s my mission
Desire to relieve her
Colossians verse in my heart sprouts
Do as unto the Lord
Heartily
With a thankful heart

Most of the time, people love to pass their own judgements without understanding someone. The feeling of bring misunderstood is extremely painful. Thus produce such quote. It is a quote seeking to be understood. All the time I spend time to understand others yet many choose to pass their own judgements onto me. If I’m not depressed, then I’m not human. However, I thank the Lord to understand my sense to be understood. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

The Lord’s Presence Brings Joy

Posted on

Eating simple vegetable soup with noodle
Being alone at home with a maid
Sensing the Lord’s presence
Brings so much
Peace and joy

Missing the Lord’s presence so much
Worship songs continually
Minister to my heart to
Sing praises and worship to my
Lord and Saviour

Though I am financially stripped
Inside I feel the fountain of
Freedom from the
Yoke of oppression
Awaiting to play melody for written songs

The joy in the Lord to feel His presence and joy despite my husband chooses not to answer my text message to join our son and him for dinner at a restaurant. Reading the book about Social Entrepreneurship and answering the ten questions make me laugh. It is the question of I receive a mentor. It is the Lord’s doing to meet my business mentor. I have been remembering my interactions with her and the recent way she replies. I thank her for contacting BL to encourage me. She didn’t and told me, “You always assume…..!” My response, “Aren’t you often assume too and jump to conclusions?” is enough to trigger her sound like a kid too. “Sounds like a kid arguing. I can debate with you! Give me a case and I will clear with you”. My question, “What case, lawyer?” Thinking of this makes me laugh again especially her denial of her own age is considered senior citizen. Siti also laughs.

Completing the token of appreciation to my business mentor and write little poetry based on the meaning of her name.

More at God’s presence post.

Deep Motivation

Posted on

Being so motivated in media production
I praise my Lord and Saviour to awaken
My deep desire better
My inner self better
My heart and mind better
The new poetry in me to grow in Him better
To be raptured in His loving kindness
To be loved by Him
To love Him with all of my whole being

I was enjoying the short film and the talk by Talya Lavie, an Israelite filmmaker who is born in 1978, comes from an animation background and decides to do more films. She raises her funds through two Israel filmmaking foundations. Her first film ‘Zero Motivation’ wins Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Narrative Feature, and Nora Ephron Prize award in Tribeca Film Festival 2014. I learn from her that she believes in her own stories and persists in her own filmmaking journey by producing short animation and films. In her animation production, she doesn’t interact with people. However, there are many communications with people in her filmmaking journey. God bless you all for reading my poetry to minister.

Being Appreciative

Loving each other fulfills the law of Christ
Who has loved us in our worst phases of life
