Elder Sister

Updated on May 18, 2016

Elder Sister


Everybody at our church calls her 'Akka' or 'Akki' which means Elder sister

Young and old alike, it has become a part of her name

She has short layered with a touch of red tints on her hair

She's has been the organizer of so many young peoples' events.

She speaks words of life to all whom she meets

As she believes not in a statue but in a God who is alive and speaks to her

She's a full time ministry worker who had built her own up stair house

She strive to live a holy life pleasing to God as a spinster.

She's a big sister to her younger sister next door

Who is having cancer as she takes care of her children

The two boys whom she's so much fond of

Teaching them and discipline them in godly principles.

She's methodical, clean, neat and very much organized

She cooks her grandma's menu with her touch of her own

She's caring and concerned about the well being of others

Now she's less serious and fun to hang around.

She loves to do shopping and even marketing

She enjoys cooking as she tries out so many recipes on her own

She makes sure everything is balanced and nutritious

As she practice what she had learnt at school.

She gives a good listening ear and advice

But I always thought that she has a secret antenna

As she would share what my mom has already shared with me

Specially when it comes to taking serious life decisions.

She had a big dog whom she loved so much

He had died and she was totally broken by it

Then she had a nice tortoise, a visiting cat and a fish

Even a cute squirrel who chewed her ears.

She has been a great blessing in my life

I did Sunday school teaching as she encouraged me

She's my sister in Christ whom I care and appreciate

So I pray God to look after her everyday.

I have a Father


I wrote this poem for my birthday which I thought to publish only today. Since I was very young I was very happy knowing that I'm special and valuable to Jesus Christ and He loves me :)

Every waking and sleeping moment you are right here with me and you never leave me, no you never leave me :)

Especially For Him (09/02/2015)

Today as I celebrate my birthday

Wondered what I’m going to write today

Every breath that I have taken until this day

Not forgetting the days which I have forgotten to pray

The Only One True Love that surrounded me all day

Yearned and called me to His side from going astray.

Every time whenever I failed I tried to avoid as much as I can

Isolating my-self from all the people was my best plan

Good News that I heard been making changes to my inner-man

Healing me daily by giving me strength to face my fears as I began

This journey seems to be full of surprises as I walk in His marvelous plan.

Young and old alike are fond of me as concerned about me

Encouraging me with words, also being there just to boost up my energy

Amazing Christ touching sinners to grow in faith of His nature

Repentance in Christ brought the gift of Salvation for my Heavenly future

So I cherish and rest in knowing God’s provision as He cultivates my nature.

Yes, it has been a wonderful day filled with so many thoughtful gifts and wishes

Overwhelmed by so much of love, care, hugs and kisses

Unworthy I became a blessing that’s so precious

Not only to my family but whoever came to be my valuable riches

Good God has created me especially for Him to be in love so precious.
