The Honourable Portia Simpson Miller is right,
we really do need to "hear" from God
to plot our journey and path
when others want to shut us up, keep women silent.
God will talk with us and listen to us! ALL the same letters, e, i,l,n,s,t, but
God restructures the dialogue and agenda
Part of the reason in this season
Why the people get so frantic is because of the closure of schools, offices and places of business.
So where do they have to hustle? in the wide-eyed hunger of their children
The stark reality of homelessness, empty fridges and cold ground take on new meaning
As it has been all the year, the days won't make a difference
They have no "vacation leave" or "holidays" nor "shopping days"
But all the more painfully aware as there is no "work place" to hide behind their suffering
This is why the silly seasons are not so silly
Many people in remote areas will be visited by absent politicians and old ladies are overjoyed, because some pastors haven't yet got the vision or have "heard" from God to buy a bus to with dignity transport the "core" of their congregations who worship, nor to give the bed-bound, communion in this "Christian" country, Christmas is meaningless to many sure church will be overflowing, so will be offering coffers
And YES the "leadership" will be going home to "family" dinner
But this is not the reality of the "lumpen proletariat"
Our prime minister is ever so right
we got to get to God somehow if He does exist in friend and foe
most of the times we simply do not know
no one is asking for a handout
no one is asking to be invited to your home
they only want their own hands to work and their own home
so it is "a time to cry...."
there are a great deal of things that deserve national mourning
"let sleeping dogs lie".
Keep the free user fees to go to hospital
the poor need that help
Help the street people sellers, Jamaican investors don't send them and their goods to cellars
this is the manifesto we need
that is why Samuel Sharpe could not stomach oppression
and the sugar of 'plantocracy/slavocracy', when Baptist was a revolutionary title
He died on "yon gallows rather than be a slave!"
last time the money came in one lump sum
this time, Christmas getting some money
and election bag later on when January suffering starts
let us be earthquake ready, every taxi, bus with a first aid kit
stock up on tin food
national day of earthquake simulation, active manifestation!
God is always right, There is a time to wait ... " They that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength, they shall mount up on wings like eagles ... they shall run and
not be weary, they shall walk and not faint"
It had to take the prime minister to give Jamaica the best sermon ever!
God bless The Honourable Portia Simpson Miller
