A Message From The Creator

Fulfilling Your Destiny

Your Destiny

There is a special purpose
thats why you are on this earth.
It’s been designed for you 
even before your birth.

Some call it destiny, 
The life you’re supposed to live.
It’s there for you to take, 
If you would just believe.

It’s planted in your heart
By God, like seeds, it seems.
Soon in time they grow 
And take the form of dreams.

If you still don’t know
What you’re set out to do, 
Just listen with your heart; 
He’ll whisper it to you.

He made you who you are, 
The things you need, He’ll give.
Just so the life He planned
One of these days you’ll live.

Hold on to your dreams, 
Don’t let them slip away.
The road may be rough, 
But you’ll get there someday.

You owe it to the Father
To be what you’re born to be.
Work hard and don’t give up.
Fulfill your destiny.

Bipartisan Women Start Election Year Sexism Watch

(WOMENSENEWS)–Arizona Republican Gov. Jan Brewer is no moderate.

A bill she signed into law ensures that same-sex couples face serious barriers to adopting children, and she is a vocal opponent of the Affordable Care Act. A Texas-like bill that would defund Planned Parenthood in her state passed in the House and is working its way through Senate committees. Brewer, no friend to the organization, signed off on an end to tax credits for the nonprofit in 2011.

But when a recent bill would have allowedemployers to drop contraception coverage, it was pulled from the state Senate amid Brewer’s concerns that women would have to disclose private information to employers. On March 28, even when the language was altered, the whole bill was defeated in the state Senate, although it has been approved for a re-vote.

It’s not to say that Brewer is an advocate for employers covering birth control; she will not say whether she would sign the changed bill, according to the Yuma Sun. But could her concern about women’s medical privacy bolster the argument that increasing the number of women in elected office–regardless of political affiliation–adds to a women-friendly zeitgeist?

It’s a question that’s hard to answer because so few women occupy high political office in general and in state government in particular.

The Political Parity Project, formed in 2009, is trying to change that. In January, the initiative announced its determination to double the number of women in Congress and governorships by 2022. That long-range effort is starting now with a media-awareness campaign called “Name It. Change It,” calling out media sexism from whichever political side–left or right–it might appear.

Swanee Hunt, who heads the Hunt Alternatives Fund in Cambridge, Mass., has pledged $750,000 annuallyfor Political Parity for the next 10 years.

Political Parity functions as a meta-group among women’s organizations. It brings 51 major leaders of national women’s and feminist groups–heads of PACs, foundations and nonprofits” to mingle and strategize on a quarterly basis.

Siobhan “Sam” Bennett, president and CEO of the Women’s Campaign Fund in Washington, D.C., is on this leadership team. “Ten years gives us enough time with all of us focusing on that increase” to reach that goal, she said in an e-mail.

Kids Company founder Camila Batmanghelidjh

Article History

 

Camila Batmanghelidjh

The founder of Kid’s Company, which offers practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children

Instantly recognisable from the brightly coloured scarves she wears,Batmanghelidjh is the charity worker politicians are most desperate to be pictured with. The 48-year-old was the apparent inspiration for Cameron’s Hug a Hoodie speech, and Boris Johnson, Iain Duncan Smith and Gordon Brown have all professed themselves fans.

A psychotherapist by training, Batmanghlidjh founded her first charity, The Place To Be, in her early 20s, to provide therapy to children in schools. By her early 30s she had set up Kids Company, which offers practical, emotional and educational support to 14,000 vulnerable inner-city children. The charity is said to return 91% of children to education, reducing crime and drug abuse by 90%.

Born to a wealthy Iranian father and Belgian mother, her own childhood was privileged and “unbelievably sheltered” – to the point that she never even went into shops as a child, she says. Sent to Sherborne School for Girls in Dorset at the age of 12, her life was transformed by the Iranian Revolution just two years later.

Her father was arrested, and her older sister was so terrified he would be executed she killed herself. Stuck in the UK, Batmanghelidjh applied for political asylum and her father’s bank manager agreed to finish paying her school fees. To support herself, she took a job working with children and found her niche. Her constant fight for cash to keep the charity going has made her almost a household name, courting city bankers and receiving much-needed donations from celebrities – Helen Mirren, for instance.

At 48, Batmanghelidjh is also an advocate for troubled young people, and says her emotional committment to them has ruled out having children of her own. “I had to decide whether I was going to deliver this level of emotional commitment to my own children or other children – I was very clear I would not be able to do both,” she says. As one Guardian reader, moved by her passion and tenacity, put it: “Knowing this woman exists will improve your view of life!”

Inspiration Of Motherhood

A Mother’s Love

A Mother’s Love is like an island
In life’s ocean vast and wide,
A peaceful, quiet shelter
From the restless, rising tide … 
A Mother’s Love is like a fortress
And we seek protection there
When the waves of tribulation
Seem to drown us in despair … 
A Mother’s Love’s a sanctuary
Where our souls can find sweet rest
From the struggle and the tension
Of life’s fast and futile quest … 
A Mother’s Love is like a tower
Rising far above the crowd,
And her smile is like the sunshine
Breaking through a threatening cloud … 
A Mother’s Love is like a beacon
Burning bright with Faith and Prayer,
And through the changing scenes of life
We can find a Haven There … 
For A Mother’s Love is fashioned
After God’s enduring love,
It is endless and unfailing
Like the love of Him above … 
For God knew in His great wisdom
That He couldn’t be Everywhere,
So He put His Little Children
In a Loving Mother’s Care.
