Toward the scorners he is scornful, but to the humble he gives grace."


Dear Queen (Makhulu)


I hope you well and happy this morning Makhulu.

I sometimes wake feeling so happy and just so increadibly blessed to be sharing planet earth with you.

Your blessings upon our lives

Continue to enhance me

Continue to enrich me

You take me higher and higher

Its in your prayer

In your gentleness

In your graceful ways

Your splendid manner

Your composure

Your majestic ways

God blessed us dearly

When He created you

A mother for all nations

What a marvelous art of His Hands


Siyabulela Makhulu

Gokra emagorkeni

Izizwe uzigcobisile

Izizwe uziqhamisile

Umzi wakwanku uwuqhamisile

In 2012 you spoke to me

Sending me to nations

Undinika imiyalelo nemiqathango

"Blessed are those who bless you,

Cursed are those who curse you!"


You spoke ngezwi elipholileyo

Izwi elithuthuzelayo

Izwi elingcwengekileyo

Izwi lwezihlwele zicula amagwijo

Athulisa izizwe

Izwi labadala


Zithutha iindaba ezilingileyo


Hymn Song

Be still for the presence of the Lord

The Holy one is here

Come bow before him now

With reverence and fear

In him no sin is found

We stand on holy ground

Be still for the presence of the Lord

The holy one is here


Be still for the glory of the Lord

Is shining all around

He burns with holy fire

With splendor he is crowned

How awesome is the sight

Our radiant king of light

Be still for the glory of the Lord

Is shinning all around


Be still for the power of the Lord

Is moving in this place

He comes to cleanse and heal

To minister his grace

No work too hard for him

In faith receive from him

Be still for the power of the Lord

Is moving in this place


Today we bring you glorious results

Your Majesty

Your Highness

Daughter of The King

Daughter of The Queen Mother


About the Queen Mom Prime Minister Tony Blair said;


"During her long and extraordinary life, her grace, her sense of duty and her remarkable zest for life made her loved and admired by people of all ages and backgrounds, revered within our borders and beyond,"


Just like Queen Mom

You stand in the presence of God Makhulu

Majestically dressed in royal robes


Ready to serve at all times

Beautiful inside out

An unforgettable presence

In our daily lives

That soothes

That heals

That makes one forget

And just makes the heart free

I'm running to the mountain tops

Ha ha ha

That's how free you make me free Makhulu :-)

A constant life enhancer

The light of the world

The salt of the earth

God's prophet

Who sees

Who knows

Thus moves as directed by God

The most ironic thing

Is that they thought they were denying me

We laughed

Ha ha ha ha

It was God's doing

"He has shown strength with his arm;

He has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;

He has brought down the mighty from their thrones

And exalted those of humble estate"



(Dear Babalwa:


I hope this finds you well!  It’s been a long journey, but tomorrow our book,


Gettysburg Replies: The World Responds to Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is officially being released and available in hard copy and e-book versions wherever books are sold. Thank you for being such an integral part of this historic publication. Your book (if you haven’t already received it), is on its way with our gratitude for your participation.)


From Jimmy Carter to Colin Powell, read #Gettysburg Replies, in this poignant tribute to Lincoln.


Thank You Queen

Because of you

Our history continues to spread

Throughout the world

God's ways are beyond

Human thoughts

You are God's chosen servant

Through thought, deed and prayer

All is accomplished through you,



The song of your soul and spirit is;


"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;


To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;


To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.


And they shall build the old wastes, they shall raise up the former desolations, and they shall repair the waste cities, the desolations of many generations.


And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks, and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.


But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.


For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them.


For I the Lord love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.


And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.


I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.


For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations."



As we rejoice in life changing dreams such as these as nations

We travel back in time

And we feel the warmth and presence

Of the Queen Mother who loved us dearly

The nurturer

Who embraced all nations

Her smile

Her grace

Her style of grace

Stole our hearts

Loved by children and adults

Loved by all sectors of society

The Global community

That smile touched everybody


It made us feel that we great

Loved and cherished

Everything disappeared in the presence of the Magical Queen Mother

She was the medicine for well being

Joy, happiness and peace of mind


I feel like a butterfly as I write about her

I can see her smiling face

Like the golden sunshine

Like a gorgeous rainbow

My heart smiles

Like a gorgeous sunflower


"Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon was the youngest daughter and the ninth of ten children of Claude Bowes-Lyon, Lord Glamis (later the 14th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne in the Peerage of Scotland), and his wife, Cecilia Cavendish-Bentinck. Her mother was descended from British Prime Minister William Cavendish-Bentinck, 3rd Duke of Portland, and Governor-General of India Richard Wellesley, 1st Marquess Wellesley, who was the elder brother of another Prime Minister, Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington.


The location of her birth remains uncertain, but reputedly she was born either in her parents' Westminster home at Belgrave Mansions, Grosvenor Gardens, or in a horse-drawn ambulance on the way to a hospital. Other possible locations include Forbes House in Ham, London, the home of her maternal grandmother, Louisa Scott. Her birth was registered at Hitchin, Hertfordshire, near the Strathmores' English country house, St Paul's Walden Bury, which was also given as her birthplace in the census the following year. She was christened there on 23 September 1900, in the local parish church, All Saints, and her godparents included her paternal aunt Lady Maud Bowes-Lyon and cousin Venetia James.


She spent much of her childhood at St Paul's Walden and at Glamis Castle, the Earl's ancestral home in Scotland. She was educated at home by a governess until the age of eight, and was fond of field sports, ponies and dogs. When she started school in London, she astonished her teachers by precociously beginning an essay with two Greek words from Xenophon's Anabasis. Her best subjects were literature and scripture. After returning to private education under a German Jewish governess, Käthe Kübler, she passed the Oxford Local Examination with distinction at age thirteen.


On her fourteenth birthday, Britain declared war on Germany. Four of her brothers served in the army. Her elder brother, Fergus, an officer in the Black Watch Regiment, was killed in action at the Battle of Loos in 1915. Another brother, Michael, was reported missing in action on 28 April 1917.Three weeks later, the family discovered he had been captured after being wounded. He remained in a prisoner of war camp for the rest of the war. Glamis was turned into a convalescent home for wounded soldiers, which Elizabeth helped to run. She was particularly instrumental in organising the rescue of the castle's contents during a serious fire on 16 September 1916.One of the soldiers she treated wrote in her autograph book that she was to be "Hung, drawn, & quartered ... Hung in diamonds, drawn in a coach and four, and quartered in the best house in the land."


Mhhhhh!!! I found my heart. Queen Mom loved literature and scripture.


This is one of the saddest and most amazing stories I've ever read.


"A five-year-old girl who provided one of the enduring images from the Queen Mother's funeral has spoken about her grief.


Destini Brown, from Kent, was photographed with her head bowed in prayer amid the crowds lining the route of the cortege on its way from the Abbey to Windsor.


She said the day was "very sad" and her mother Debbie said the picture captured a moment to be treasured forever.


The photograph was taken by the Press Association's John Giles as the hearse passed along The Mall in central London.


Mrs Brown, 32, said: "It is something we will never forget. We went to be part of history and the kids will never see anything like that again.


"It was an amazing thing to do, even though we were all standing there freezing."


The sight of the picture in national newspapers afterwards moved the mother-of-four to tears.


'Little monkey'


She said: "It brought a lump to my throat. Of all the people, they decided to take a picture of my daughter."


Destini said: "It was very sad. I looked at all the flowers and saw the Queen Mother's necklace."


Prince Charles you captured and carried forth a profound piece of writing for generations yet unborn. They will benefit greatly from your heartfelt and beautiful words for a very long long time.


THIS is the full transcript of the Prince of Wales's tribute to the Queen Mother:


"I know what my darling grandmother meant to so many other people. She literally enriched their lives and she was the original life enhancer, whether publicly or privately, whoever she was with.


"And, in many ways, she had become an institution in her own right; a presence in the nation and in other realms and territories beyond these shores. At once indomitable, somehow timeless, able to span the generations; wise, loving, and an utterly irresistible mischievousness of spirit.


"An immensely strong character, combined with a unique natural grace, and an infectious optimism about life itself."


"Above all, she understood the British character and her heart belonged to this ancient land and its equally indomitable and humorous inhabitants, whom she served with panache, style and unswerving dignity for very nearly 80 years.


"I know too what she meant to my whole family, particularly the Queen, to whom she was such a stalwart and sensitive support when my grandfather died, when he was only two-anda-half years older than I am now.


"For me, she meant everything and I had dreaded, dreaded this moment along with, I know, countless others.


"Somehow, I never thought it would come. She seemed gloriously unstoppable and, since I was a child, I adored her.


"Her houses were always filled with an atmosphere of fun, laughter and affection, and I learnt so much from her of immense value to my life.


"Apart from anything else, she wrote such sparklingly wonderful letters and her turn of phrase could be utterly memorable.


"Above all, she saw the funny side of life and we laughed until we cried - oh, how I shall miss her laugh and wonderful wisdom born of so much experience and an innate sensitivity to life.


"She was quite simply the most magical grandmother you could possibly have, and I was utterly devoted to her.


"Her departure has left an irreplaceable chasm in countless lives but, thank God, we are all the richer for the sheer joy of her presence and everything she stood for."'s+anguish+for+his+'magical+grandmother'+QUEEN+MOTHER%3A+'She...-a084326438


"The collective egoic mind is the most dangerously insane and destructive entity ever to inhabit this planet. What do you think will happen on this planet if human consciousness remains unchanged?" Eckhart Tolle


May God's warmth and richest blessings remain in your glorious heart Queen. May His love surround and protect us. May His grace remain in our hearts forever more. Mighty blessings to all.


Sweet Dreams Makhulu (big smile, giggle)
