The day I broke my pact 
with the worldly system
to restore my covenant with God
I received good news.
It was about my parcel
that for some reason
could not be delivered
but I was still postponing 
my right to claim refund.

That day my helper
surprised me with a message
that he picked up the parcel 
from the post office—
it’s been there for weeks,
therefore was ready 
to be stamped
“returned to sender”.

At first, I wondered 
I wasn’t notified before,
it’s been as if
purposefully hidden.
That minute I rejoiced
because I asked the Lord
to give me a sign
if the decision 
to resign from my employment 
was by Him supported.

And here it is!
My package! Lost and found . . .
my order,
like the answer to my prayers:
the tree seeds,
eucalyptus globulus,
as the good news of Christ
plus the gift
—the flower seeds, 
catharantus rosea,
known as bright eyes.

I praise you, my God! 
I praise you, my Lord!


“Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God?” The Letter of James 4:4

 “And Jesus said to all, ‘If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself?’ ” The Bible, Luke 9:23
