“A GLOW OF BEAUTY”

This gives us a sense of hope.

A crystallized limb hangs low on a barren tree;

Yet the moonlight reflects a glow of beauty.

The ever present wind now becomes the enemy.

The limb cries of itself seems unjust.

How can one so fragile withstand such opposition?

I must hold onto hope, for the darkness will pass;

And the morning sun will provide me strength.

Be patient and the clouds will make way to a new tomorrow.

The limb continues to sway;

Only now notices the warmth of its enemy.

Its weight has lessoned, its spirit never broke;

And the limb hangs high again-

Against the sunlight,

Reflecting a glow of beauty!! …

Women with Undiagnosed High Functioning Autism

During my attendance to night art classes, I get to befriend two classmates. I share to them my experiences in life. The need to be a chameleon in social situations. Suddenly, today’s High functioning autism why many women are undiagnosed article triggers such memories. I’m surprised the reason I use “chameleon” as a metaphor. Because I have been trying to fit in but to no avail. 

Thursday’s Doors ~ Stratford on the Whetstone, part 2

When do we become the “salt of the earth”?

The grass so green evokes imaginary

memories of farming, milling,

with families living in close-knit

industrious community.

Sacred ground, when people were

“the salt of the earth.”

As I had noticed Dutch symbols

upon the barn, the total setting

leaves purposeful, productive

lasting impressions

upon my mind.

and rich soil of Delaware, OH land!

Why Do Girls Show Signs of Autism Later Than Boys?Written by Dan Gray


Things are confusing especially in social situations. The article Why Do Girls Show Signs of Autism Later Than Boys? helps to have a better self-understanding. The reason the characteristics and diagnosis show up later age in girls. 

Is it due to women are created differently than men? Based on my interactions with other women, a strong women still wish to be protected by their husbands. Confessions of my personal experiences are 😳

  1. In the poetry social group, I begin to pick up poetry. 
  2. A classmate whom I like enjoys coding, I learn to pick up the skills. 
  3. Getting married due to pressure from my parents.
  4. Care the weak for my Lord Jesus becomes my motivating factor.  
  5. Learn art better from teachers and friends.
  6. Sensing certain feelings after interacting with certain people. (I happen to meet a longtime friend. Suddenly, after confiding she angrily purging out foul words. After we part our ways to home, foul words talking in my head. So I quickly reject it in the name of Jesus. Listen to worship songs help me.)
  7. Worshipping God through their acts of kindness attract me to the persons. 😳 

Upon knowing my weaknesses, I choose to be careful in whom I spend my time. Because I don’t want to lose myself. I want the Holy Spirit to be with me.
