Speaking to our Lord who doesn’t sleep nor slumber?
Due to pressure of life to complete endless daily tasks?

All tasks are abandoned
Zip all hands from work
Yearn to talk without actions

Yoshiko did mention about defining lazy so the above poetry is birthed out in response to her disagreement to Pat Cegan’s poetry in her blog so Pat suggested to her to do her version since she disagreed the part lazy people will observe. Yoshiko only managed to come out with the first line then I cover the remaining. Her disagreement can be found at Pat’s blog or as follows: “Can’t be bothered with anything. Will not lift up hands to do work. All day doing nothing. Think nothing”
Yoshiko and I were challenged to define the acronym of lazy based from the Bible. The book of Proverb is full of giving contrast between hardworking and lazy people. Then we check from the Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary that lazy means unwilling to work or be active; doing as little as possible. Second meaning is not involving much energy or activity; slow and relaxed. Third is showing a lack of effort or care. Last definition is moving slowly.
Some children are rejected by their parents.
Their existence seems like a threat to them.
Abandonment occurs upon birth.
Think before being engulfed in intercourse.

In accounting, AR stands for Accounts Receivable, but it also stands for Animal Rights, Argentina, Administrative Record, Army Reserved, Actions Required, Annual Reviews, Action Research, Abuse Report, etc. But AR also stands for Abandonment from Rejection. Below explains my history and how I relate it with current society producing the above poetry.
Even though I marvel my dad for him refusing to fight for family’s inheritance, I always feel that there was a gap between us. He chooses to work hard by himself. Somehow, I feel more comfortable with my mum and there was unknown barrier with my dad. A few years ago, I was shocked to hear the truth. My grandma was hoping for a boy from my dad, but the third is still a baby girl. That is me. Though my mum was reluctant and carrying me, my dad agreed to my grandma to give me to my childless uncle and auntie. But a twist of fate my auntie chose my four years old elder sister. So my mother reluctantly signed the adoption letter. No wonder I feel terrible without myself knowing it. All I can do now is praying for healing from my Lord and my Saviour. Furthermore, I feel sad to see news of babies’ abandonment due to accident and relate it with my painful feelings.
In the dark
Darkness cover the land
Kings, Queens, Concubines, Ministers,
All sorts of
Possess and Protect

This is based on my observations how most leaders protect their seats and later on possess lands.
Does the nature of our work brings glory to God?
Does the nature of our work brings us closer to God?
Do we let God’s holiness shines upon us?
Do we want to sin against the One who saves us?
Do we want to please God?
Do we want to do that makes Him sad?
Do we agree in dishonesty?
Please think about it.

As I was walking home from buying groceries, suddenly the words ‘nature of work’ has the acronym of ‘now’. Because I was thinking my family’s and my nature of work to spend time with our little ones. A few days later, the questions came as I was pondering about this. The candle light denotes our borrowed lifetime on earth. Once the candle is burnt completely, our life has ended.
When something seems too good to be true
Think and Analyse of its long-term consequences
There is bound to long-term sacrifice and pain
Towards the affected people, instigated ones and instigators
Or bound to long-term joy and peace
Or bound to lifelong guilt
How fragile is a child’s heart
Just a minor action will affect that child’s lifelong psychologically
Either lifelong beautiful memories or lifelong unrepairable wounds.
Choose after you think!
Think as you choose!
Think before you reach to a decision!
How many times adults make excuses to justify their actions?
And let it happen to the innocent born child
Is it the right way to do so?
Don’t let the history to repeat itself!

With phrases rang in my mind upon seeing my sister’s photo, “When something seems too be true”, my heart feels apologetic towards her.
My grandmother and uncles from dad’s side instigated him to let my sister to study and stay i good n Singapore. My mother was reluctant about it and my grandmother (mother’s) spoke that it is the best for a child to stay with own parents. My mother respected my father’s decision and think about my sister’s good education since my uncles have Singapore PR.
Upon giving birth to me, my grandmother wanted my parents to give it to my father’s third elder brother who cannot conceive. My mother was reluctant and dejected. But my third aunt chose my four-years old sister because she was easier to take care rather than me. How hers and my destiny are swapped. Adoption letter was made and my sister receives Singapore PR.
During secondary school, my sister indirectly told mother that she wants to return to hometown, but my mother didn’t get it and replied for her to stay and further her education. My mother was concerned my sister would not be able to adjust to the syllabus at hometown. Misunderstanding occurred. The reason my sister wanted to return to hometown was due to ostracise and bully from third aunt, her cousins. To make it worse, she was forced by grandmother to study all the time. Sense of abandonment and rejection crept into her soul and it lasted until now. Why would my parents leave her alone?
My third aunt was jealous of my mother for being able to conceive. So my sister became the victim of abuse though my parents were paying her school fees. She kept quiet at the abuse, but the helper could not stand it and instructed her to quickly eat more while my aunt was not at the kitchen. Report came to my parents and I heard it during my primary years. Upon reaching my secondary school, my parents began to share about those. My sister confided that those years she continuously watched the white blank wall. I felt pity and hope to accompany her.
To everyone’s surprise, my sister entered Polytechnic then to university and with a bachelor degree. Back then, everyone felt her grades were hopeless. I am graduated very happy that she can succeed.
But the scar of abandonment was there and erupted before her marriage ceremony. My parents and my sister had heated argument about the seating arrangement. Blame for not informing my dad about the seating arrangement fell upon my mother who was forgetful due to the need to handle household. But my sister didn’t think so. She thought that mother purposefully didn’t inform my dad. I have been trying to remove the misunderstanding between them.
Two years later, my sister conceived to a baby girl and had a one month confinement period. She questioned mother for not letting her return to hometown again then explained the words she told before. Mother felt that she need to speak about her feelings and needs directly.
Though now their relationship are good, my mother regretted and is fearful now to pass the adoption letter to my sister after arranged her documents nicely into a file. She is afraid of the erupting fire from my sister. Upon seeing the letter, I have been wondering how to explain to my beloved sister. It is a very painful process for both my mother and sister. And I am praying for God’s intervention and what should I do. I am caught in the middle.
A daily struggle to do quiet times
A daily struggle to do God’s will
A daily struggle to obey God
A daily struggle to please God
A daily struggle to revere God
A daily struggle to fear God
A daily struggle to commit our ways to the Lord
In our hearts, soul, mind, actions
In our attitude towards life
In all that we Think and Do
In planning all our way.

As I was doing my daily quiet time, suddenly there was an urge, “A daily struggle” due to many other commitments to perform tasks at home especially disciplining my toddler.
Inspiration is from Proverbs 16:3 (KJV) “Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.”
