Check it out! I wrote this one specifically for Yeka. As most of you know, I am not actually religious or believe in God, however I wrote this one to be special for her. I know what she believes and I respect that. She’s also been up against many health challenges lately. I just wanted to write something inspiring. Thank you to Yeka for hosting. 🙂

His Once More

When Heaven shines it’s light upon me,

I’ll not be weighed down by my fears,

Or the tears, of my past fading behind me.

Instead, I’ll look forward towards a blinding 

light, knowing that this time was never taken 

from me, but granted freely, as this time was 

never truly mine, but only graciously extended 

before me. So hark, and heed thusly to how

I’ve used my time because one must know,

that the decision behind my life’s design 

was all mine. I’d sought to leave this world

a better place, with a smile upon my face,

as I spent my time awash, in both captivating

joy, and grace. I bow my head as I await 

my judgment, I fear not for what may come

because I’ve lived a life of love and those

I’ve touched will not soon allow me to be

forgotten. My deeds and love precede me,

as I gaze upon a lustrous golden gate, 

shrowded in white clouds, so opulent and 

proud. My heart’s as full as a chalice, over-

flowing with fine wine. I’ve lived, I’ve loved, 

and I’ve served my time. Comforted 

by the knowledge that in the end, 

all things are fine. I know no fear and walk 

with open arms towards a celestial embrace, 

and in the world behind me, my footsteps 

leave remnants of beautiful sprouting 

blossoms growing in every step from whence, 

I’d sprung, in hues of red, yellow and blue,

encapsulating the world in their aromatic 

perfumes. Every gentle brush of my skin

will still be lingering on the flesh of those 

I’d, at one point, touched before. My adoration

still seeping through their very pores-

forevermore, and then again onto their 

kin, as they revel in the love that only 

a pure soul may bring. For myself, I know 

not, what’s in store. Yet, I was never their’s 

but His, and I’m His once more.

DOORS: GUEST POST OF RYAN, RYAN CALLAHAN’S BLOG ❤️

Hi friends! I’ve always loved doors! In my life, they represent fresh opportunities, adventures, pointers, lessons, revelations, celebrations, and more.

In our WP community, opening doors translates into a renewed appreciation for our beloved fellow bloggers and their deeply cherished blogs.

Through my Doors Series, I aim to give our fellow bloggers the gift of sharing a piece of their world. I invite them to guest post on my blog and share their message, their story, their heart. I also encourage them to show how our blogs and worlds link together in love.

After all, IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE.️❤️

Today, we happily knock on the door of a dear fellow blogger:

Ryan from Ryan Callahan’s Blog ❤️


Hello everyone and God bless you all!  My name is Ryan Callahan.  My blog (www.AuthorRyanC.com) is all about helping people come to know Jesus, helping people understand the Bible, and ministering to a lost and hurting world.  Yeka has invited me to do a guest post for her blog, and I am honored and blessed to do it!  Thank you Yeka!  Your joyful heart is very encouraging!  Since Yeka’s blog is all about love, I would like to share God’s definition of love with you and show you just how much God loves you!

TRUE LOVE

We all like love, but what is love?  What does love look like?  I have good news!  God’s Word, the Bible, answers that for us!  The Book of 1 Corinthians contains a set of verses known as the love verses that teach us what love truly is.  Let’s take a look!

“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.  If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.  But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-8)

“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love.” (1Corinthians 13:13)

What a beautiful definition of love, amen!  We also learn in the Book of 1 John that God is love!  Love is who He is!

“And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love.  Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” (1 John 4:16)

Since we know the definition of love from 1 Corinthians and we know that God is love, then we know God is made up of all those attributes of love and that is how He loves us!  God is patient, God is kind.  He does not envy, He does not boast, He is not proud.  He is not rude, He is not self-seeking, He is not easily angered, He keeps no record of wrongs.  God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  He always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.  God never fails and God is the greatest!

God showed us just how much He loves us when He sent His Son into the world to die for our sins!  That is the greatest and most loving gift of all!  We only know what love is because of God!

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.  This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” (1 John 4:9-10)

“We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19)

God loves us so much that He humbled Himself and became a man, Jesus Christ, in order to set us free from sin and death!  Jesus is God in human flesh, Jesus is Lord and Jesus loves you!  

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)

My message of love to you all is that God loves you more than you could ever imagine and He wants you to be in Heaven with Him forever!  He wants to forgive all your sins and give you eternal life!  You receive God’s gift of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.  There is nothing you could ever do to earn this amazing gift of God’s grace.  It must be received by faith.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Jesus speaking in John 3:16

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Ephesians 2:8-9)

“This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.  There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:22-24)

Praise God for His great love for us!  His love is the true love we all need!  Come to Jesus today and let Him love you and save your soul!

Grace and peace to you all! 


Thanks so much for opening your door to us, dear Ryan! ❤️

You have shared a love that is unlike any other love. A love that know no bounds. A love that knows us all to our deepest core. A lot that embraces . A love that redeems. A love that gives eternal life. A love that is indescribably the very love we all need. The one True Love. God’s Love.

May you be blessed a billion times over for all the passion you have in sharing God’s Love!


So friends, thanks for dropping by!

Do give Ryan a special knock on Ryan Callahan’s Blog ❤️

Till our next run of Doors, I wish everyone many happy, love-filled days ahead!

DOORS: GUEST POST OF KEVIN, WHAT WORDS MAY COME ❤️

Hi friends! I’ve always loved doors! In my life, they represent fresh opportunities, adventures, pointers, lessons, revelations, celebrations, and more.
In our WP community, opening doors translates into a renewed appreciation for our beloved fellow bloggers and their deeply cherished blogs.


Through my Doors Series, I aim to give our fellow bloggers the gift of sharing a piece of their world. I invite them to guest post on my blog and share their message, their story, their heart. I also encourage them to show how our blogs and worlds link together in love.

After all, IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE. ❤️

Today, we happily knock on the door of a dear friend and fellow blogger:

Kevin of What Words May Come ❤️


Thank you, Yeka, for your loving, kind invitation to Guest Post on your blog.  I am honored and humbled by the experience!  Your tender heart is perfectly reflected in the words you post, and I feel so blessed to call you my friend.  Your life-resilience is admirable beyond words…


I have many passions in my life:

• God

• Family

• Children and their laughter

• Writing whatever God puts on my heart

• Etc… (the list is long)

More than likely, many of you reading this have very similar passions.   For this post, however, I will reflect on our most common – writing.

While I’ve always enjoyed making up stories or rhymes, especially when my children were young, I have only recently realized how much I love to write.  We will call it a latent talent, although I believe it has always lived inside of me.

In my recently published book of poetry I feature 40 faith-based poems. It’s my belief that God allowed me to write these poems, and do so with little effort. I feel blessed for that, and I give credit where credit is due! (I wish formatting had been as easy! 😁)

I hope that my love of God, family and mankind in general is reflected in my posts out here on WordPress.  It is what feeds my heart and my fingers when I write.

It is intentional when I write something out of sync with my other posts.  A short story or song or whatever, as I am passionate about staying as broad as possible to include as many tastes for the readers who follow me.  

Thank you for all those who follow my blog.  You are my blessing every day!

I love all feedback too, as well as all the sweet and kind messages when words I’ve written touch the reader.  That is what keeps me going!

WordPress is such a beautiful release for so many diverse thoughts for all the writers.  I wish it could be duplicated and the heartfelt intent we feel for one another could spread around the world.

Maybe, just maybe, we can find tolerance, acceptance and love for our neighbor, regardless of who they are, and in doing so make this world a better place for our children. A dreamer is going to dream, and, sometimes, dreams do come true!

My wish for you all is for you to find your inner peace and see the good in others, so we can truly love our neighbors as ourselves!  

Love is really the key!


Thanks so much for opening your door to us, dear Kevin! ❤️

Your immeasurable faith in God touches our hearts and minds with power and depth.

While your love for God, family, and mankind fuel your passion to write, your all-inclusive approach to your posts invites even more readers to your faith-filled blog.

As you live and breathe faith, you inspire us to look beyond ourselves. You encourage us to look with greater love towards our neighbors. You help us believe that we can truly make a difference in our world.

And we echo your wish of inner peace and goodness. For Love is really the key to open the doors of our hearts and minds. ❤️


So friends, thanks for dropping by!

Do give Kevin a special knock on What Words May Come!

Till our next run of Doors, I wish everyone many happy, love-filled days ahead!

And here’s looking forward to opening more doors with you! ❤️

DOORS: GUEST POST OF ASHOK, MUSINGS OF A WANDERER ❤️

Hi friends! I’ve always loved doors! In my life, they represent fresh opportunities, adventures, pointers, lessons, revelations, celebrations, and more.

In our WP community, opening doors translates into a renewed appreciation for our beloved fellow bloggers and their deeply cherished blogs.

Through my Doors Series, I aim to give our fellow bloggers the gift of sharing a piece of their world. I invite them to guest post on my blog and share their message, their story, their heart. I also encourage them to show how our blogs and worlds link together in love.

Today, we happily knock on the door of a dear friend and fellow blogger:

Ashok from Musings of a Wanderer ❤️


It is an honor and such a pleasant surprise to be asked to write a Guest Post by Yeka. I have been very busy with some personal work and have not been blogging. But there was no way I could say no to this immensely loving friend and fellow blogger. I would gladly fly thousands of miles to have one hug from her.

She has gone through extremely challenging times and has come out of these stronger, more resilient and more filled with love. And she keeps sharing her love and her light with all️.

I share her belief and faith: Only Love! 

For me too, love is all there is. 

God is Love and Love is God!

Love heals. 

Love redeems. 

Let us all join together in this divine circle of eternal love.


WHAT IS MY RELIGION 

I am a Hindu by birth. But if someone asks me what is my religion, I would say:

• It is compassion

• It is kindness

• It is being humane 

And my God is: LOVE 

My God is not sitting in a temple or a church or a mosque or any other place of worship. There is no god sitting on any mount or in any heaven!! 

The love in our hearts is God! If you are kind, if you are compassionate, you are godly, you are spiritual! 

There is no God outside of you. There is no God outside of me. There is no God who can ever be explained or defined! 

Love doesn’t need any language. Love is a feeling and it can only be experienced. Love only needs loving! And God Being Love needs only loving. And God can only be experienced.  

Hindu scriptures describe God as: Satchitananda — Sat Chit Ananda

Sat: Ever Existent

Chit: Ever Conscious

Ananda: Ever new Bliss 

That is my God. That is the God I worship. That is the God I love. And that is the God I see and feel in the places of worship of all faiths and religions. Once we are filled with love we shall always be blissful. 

And ultimately my Father and I are One.  Indian rishis and scriptures had said that too, millenniums ago: I am He. My soul, my love is a vital and inseparable part of the Great Spirit, of Divine Love.  

The Holy Geeta, Bible and Quran sit side by side on the shelves of the bookstores and they never fight! Those who fight are the ones who have never read them or have not imbibed their message of love, universal peace and brotherhood!

There is not and there can’t be any difference in: Christ Consciousness or Krishna Consciousness or the Consciousness of Prophet Muhammad and Buddha; or any self-realized being.  

There is no God of vengeance and there is no God we should be fearful of. 

God is Love

God is Peace

God is Joy

God is Bliss

God is Patience

God is Compassion

God is Light

God is Purity

God is Beauty

Unselfishness is God

Nature is God 

God is in the fragrance of the flowers. 

God is manifest in every sunrise and every sunset.

God is manifest in the smile of the child and in the hug of a friend.

God is there in every pure emotion and thought. 

We are going through very turbulent times. There is so much unrest and uncertainty in the young as well as old. The only way we can help the world is by changing our consciousness; and by not getting sucked into the negativity being spewed by media, the politicians and their allies. Once we raise our consciousness, once we become love, once we tear the veil of separation, we help whole of humanity. 

I will love till my last breath.

In Divine Friendship,

Ashok 


Thanks so much for opening your door to us, dear Ashok! ❤️

You have shared your freedom that comes with going beyond religion. Your liberation from the polarizing and divisive stands that institutions take. Your emancipation from biases, labels, and judgments.

And in your life, faith is a way of life. You have inspired us to be more tolerant with healthy respect and acceptance, with open minds and loving hearts. Instead of focusing on differences, we can acknowledge our similarities in goodness of soul and spirit. We can press ever so passionately into all that is True Love. For God is Love and Love is God. ❤️


So friends, thanks for dropping by!

Do give Ashok a special knock on Musings of a Wanderer!

Till our next run of Doors, I wish everyone many happy, love-filled days ahead!

And here’s looking forward to opening more doors with you! ️❤️



SO WILL I ❤️

2018: The year that changed my life forever.

So Will I. The song that changed my heart forever. That song was Heaven-sent that year when life threw a bomb my way.

It was then that I was diagnosed with IgA Nephropathy. I nearly exploded! I could hardly believe it, but I had to face it. I hated it, but I had to befriend the journey it would take me through. I questioned it, but I found my answers through deep introspection. I cried buckets (no, rivers!), but I smiled victoriously too. I was saddled with emotions, but I was emancipated with surrender. Not the defeated kind, mind you. But the surrender that embraces strength. The total faith-in-God kind of surrender.

And as I continue this journey with love in my heart, I share this song with you. In hopes that you will find your miracle too! ❤️
