What the Bible says about light and seed

The True Light "In him, (the Lord Jesus) was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world,…the world didn’t recognize him." John 1:4,9.

The Good Seed and the Weeds “The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seeds in his field. But while everyone was sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. Matthew 13:24,25.

The Nights of Vila Sonia

Written and posted by Jean-Louis. 

Since this is Valentine´s week,  I thought it appropriate to post some love poems written to my dear sweet wife Mirian, my inspiration and my faitfhful travel companion.
I hope that it will help some of you men to rediscover the romantic bone in you that you might have lost along the way and forgotten that she is "bone of your bones and flesh of your flesh". Any spontaneous, sincere attempt at tickling her funny bone will be appreciated, I am sure. Your  gift  doesn´t have to be expensive, extravagant or outrageous. All she wants is your tender loving attention and appreciation.    
 
My dear love, precious muse
Your tenderness flows over my soul
And keeps me quieted down
In your sweet embrace

My being wrapped in you
Velvety and silky mother of pearl
Consecrated vase
Shared in silence

Prisoner locked without a key
Under the enchanted night
Half mist, half moon
Piercing with its sharp horns
The tenacious diaphanous veil

Challenging the wind
And the unceasing rain
In São Paulo,
City of illusions

Here you are Vila Sonia,
Suburb of dreams
Awoken by the nostalgia
Of a distant anxious melody
Lulling my weariness
With melancholy chords
Suspended by  its rhythms

Benevolent ambassadors
Musical streets vendors
Bring the flowery dawn
Of scarlet glory strewn
On a golden palette
By the indecisive heavenly
Host welcoming
In your unknown world
This exhausted traveler

With all its best efforts
The king of the day could not
Eclipse your inviting glance
And your noble bearing at last
Inviting me to share... breakfast.
