01-23-2024 Sirach 11 V0203 Harvests the choicest of nectar




The Book of Sirach Ch 11 v- Two and Three

2 Do not praise anyone for good looks; or despise anyone because of appearance. 3 The bee is least among winged creatures, but it reaps the choicest of harvests.


We seek the least as the nectar of life the honey that makes us dance people of no means seeking good over evil in every extreme the joy of living Redeemed. We are here to seek out the lost, the lonely and the languished those who need the Good Physician most. We penned a discussion of how the little bee can make such a difference where beauty unfolds not due to size or good looks but that of wisdom and knowledge of everything good and sweet. Enjoy the poem titled;


Imagine a Bee


In a world where beauty takes the stage,

Where appearances define the gauge,

There lies a tale of truth untold,

Of good looks versus good sense, behold.


Imagine a bee, so small and petite,

With wings that flutter to a rhythmic beat,

Its stature may be diminutive and slight,

Yet it reaps the choicest harvests, day and night.


With petals adorned in vibrant array,

Flowers entice, in colors as they may,

But beyond the allure, a secret lies,

A treasure hidden from prying eyes.


For the bee, with its wisdom profound,

Seeks not just beauty, as it hovers around,

It delves deeper into the flower’s core,

To savor the nectar, a divine rapport.


While some may gawk at superficial grace,

And chase illusions, like a fleeting chase,

The bee, oh dear creature, knows the art,

Of seeking substance, with a humble heart.


For beauty fades, like petals that wilt,

But wisdom endures, like the essence that’s built,

The bee, an emblem of nature’s sweet dance,

Teaches us to seek wisdom, given a chance.


So let us remember, in this worldly race,

That good looks may fade, leaving no trace,

But good sense, like the bee’s sacred nectar,

Nourishes our souls, making us richer.


For in the end, it’s not appearances that matter,

But the wisdom we gather, like honey’s sweet splatter,

Let us be like the bee, wise and aware,

And reap the choicest harvests, with love and eternal care. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.


At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.


I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for a little boy named David Alexander. Praise God thank You Jesus. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

01-23-2024 Sirach 11 v-0203


**Harvests the choicest of nectar**


Praise not anyone who looks good on the spot

Let the appearance of anyone despise you not

Creatures with wings least is the bee

Harvests the choicest of nectar for free
