Do we admit defeat to the sins in our lives?
Or do we admit defeat to our Lord Jesus Christ’s love to live in obedience?
Two defeat paths
Which choice of path do we decide?

Suddenly, “admit defeat” came when I was thinking of my friend’s mother in law. She kept on speaking to take care of her grandson, but she gives up after two weeks of care giving. Then she returned to her own country. That means she is admitting defeat.

Does a media we listen and/or watch affects our attitude towards life?
Does that media beneficial for our inner-self and even our mind and hearts?

I Corinthians 6:12-14 (KJV)
All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body. And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power.

1 Corinthians 10:23 (KJV)
All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not.

Ephesians 4:28-32 (KJV)
Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

2 Timothy 3:1-3 (NIV)
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good.

Suddenly, the word “Art declines” came to my mind then “Attitude declines” and realise its acronyms are AD and the Scripture of Corinthians “Everything is permissible, but not beneficial” spoke to me. AD stands for Anno Domini, which means In the Year of Our Lord (and the lord is Jesus). This reminded me of the Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to Timothy.

The above poetry started with, “Dressed in skins | Dressed in leafs | Knitted skins | Knitted leafs” after I read about dress code issue. As I stumbled upon Ian’s remarks, my imagination starts to wander. The article can be found at Ericalagan.net/dress-code-st-anthony at ‘ianscyberspace on March 4, 2013 at 7:50 am’ mentioning, “The Bible says Adam and Eve were created naked so under the right circumstances where minds are pure that’s the ideal. But when in disobedience they realized they were in fact naked they put leaves on, and God substituted skins. Perhaps you should turn up at church in a leaf costume or skins and then he would be happy to have you go back to the traditional costumes which are both beautiful and appropriate. Its this kind of attitude your cleric espouses that turns people off religion today. It’s called majoring in minors!”

When I search the origin of cotton, the website wasn’t sure its date. The article is at here. The origin of silk is at this link

This whole process is very challenging for me to express my feelings and ideas through poetry.
