May God Bless You Exceedingly
     (a sonnet for the sweet and humble)

By Nordette Adams

Friends, may His grace and mercy shine sweet light
upon your lives this day and times beyond.
May His wings shadow you when you take flight.
With your fresh dreams, let not a thief abscond.
Let love from dawn to dawn reign in your world.
Let peace know home within your heart always.
Let no vile creatures crush your precious pearls.
Let joy join you and keep you all your days.
When you take rest upon each day's relent,
may He whose gift is sleep bless you with dreams,
with this your rest is fully heaven sent,
so may you rise with wisdom in full streams.
      I send this blessing to your door because
      you've shown me you seek love and not applause.

You have brought tears to my eyes as i am so sensitive anyway. You have made me feel the most appreciated ever on this site and may you forever be blessed for the rest of your days. People like you make me proud to be on the den as there are only a few real and not jealous authors. Your list should have been in the thousands but you are so much more than that in the heavens. For we dont get our deserving prize on earth but in heaven so bless you my friend as you have made my day.

Thank you, Nordette. I just took another tour of writingjunkie. I stayed and watched all the visuals as they scrolled. When I got to the picture of his monument and read the words "Free at last..." his voice jumped at me. I could hear his entonation, that chant sounding his voice. It really makes you think how deeply he is imbeded in our hearts and minds. ~~Carmen

What a remarkable journey I just experienced. I visited all of your sites. I'm so impressed.

Reviewed by Sandra Mushi 1/10/2006
Martin Luther King left behind a monument of hope and opportunity for us all that the storm of time can never destroy. He wrote his name in love on the hearts of million freedom fighters and peace lovers - in the USA and outside the USA. The dream he gave us endures forever and his heroic deed greatly endeared himself to the world.

Our hearts anguish at the needless waste of life, but in the same light, he sacrificed his life for his love of humanity.

People of every race, colour, creed and nationality are inspired by the memory of King's courage and perseverance; and by the extraordinary faith he possessed. His accomplishments, leadership and the example he made of his life left a rich heritage for coming generations.

I have visited your sites - and they leave me at awe everyday! Excellent work, Nordette!

God bless,
