PHENOMENAL WOMAN – MAYA ANGELOU

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It’s the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can’t touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can’t see.
I say,
It’s in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.
Now you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

FAR ABOVE RUBIES

When I was much younger, my Aunt taught my siblings and I a song. Actually, it was a poem written by Russel Kelfer but she turned it into a very wonderful piece of music (wish you guys could hear me sing it) LOL!!.. It is so inspirational and I’m going to put the “lyrics” down here…

His poem has touched millions, One of the many amazing things about this bible teacher was that he was blind.

N/B : my aunt added a refrain of hers:

“You are far above rubies (2x)
You are precious and perfect unique design, called God’s special woman/man”

VERSES

You are who you are for a reason.
You’re part of an intricate plan.
You’re a precious and perfect unique design,
Called God’s special woman or man.

 
You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb,
You’re just what he wanted to make.

 The parents you had were the ones he chose,
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom designed with God’s plan in mind,
And they bear the Master’s seal.

 No, that trauma you faced was not easy.
And God wept that it hurt you so;
But it was allowed to shape your heart 
So that into his likeness you’d grow.

 You are who you are for a reason,
You’ve been formed by the Master’s rod.
You are who you are, beloved,
Because there is a God!

I think what the poet was trying is this : YOU ARE NOT AN ACCIDENT. Your breath, race, skin colour, every single detail of your body was prescribed by God.
He determined your natural talents : singing, acting, writing etc. Nothing in your life is arbitrary. IT IS ALL FOR GOD’S PURPOSE.
Pastor Rick Warren made me understand that God is not haphazard. The more discoveries we hear about, the better we understand how uniquely suited they are for human life.
God made you so he could LOVE you so build your life on that truth. You don’t need to worry about that deformity or failure or disappointment : IT IS ALL FOR A PURPOSE – GOD’S PURPOSE.

God uniquely created you and although there are some things you find difficult to accept always know that you’ll prosper because it is all for a purpose.

**YOU ARE FAR ABOVE RUBIES**

Now I’m jaw-dropped. I mean this is so beautiful, at a point I was like “is this even real?” “Is it some kind of computer design?”. But on a second look and after much research I found out that its indeed REAL!!

The beautiful picture you’ve just seen is the Amazingly beautiful Lavender Field in Provence, France. Fragrant lavender fields bloom from June to August in the Luberon, around the Mont-Ventoux, in the region of Sault and that of Valréas; such amazing scenery and atmosphere make the lavender fields one of the summer Must-Sees in Provence. This blue gold has been used for a long time to make soap and cosmetics.
THERE IS BEAUTY IN THE WORLD. Dreaming of travelling to this beautiful city.. (I’ll go there someday 😉 .. )
Just came across the wonderful pictures of the Lavender Fields and I just thought I should do a little “blogging” about it.

Do have a splendid saturday! 🙂
