MercyfulGrace Diaries with Life – ‘Learning’

We are all learning. I do every day. More about ourselves and the mysteries of life. No one was born with a survival manual guide to life.

It was learned; percieved and acquired. Some got it right, while some got it tragically wrong. Some manipulated it through religion and politics. Some are just none the wiser ..’

A bountiful love, full of joy; may it depart, never, from you and I, and those around you always.
To find the layers that deep within – you need to first – uncover the blinds – that layer – deep with out.

image

You can hate me but I’m a tell you the truth. The bullshit is not here. It’s over there!

Nobody can Serve Money & God. They don’t go hand in hand. It’s a spiritual waste of time.

Dear God, remove my enemies, from my path, less you make mockery of them with your wrath, through my gifts, mercilessly ..’ For, I shall burn them up in the spirit to the ground by your will, if it be !!!!!!!

image

Dear police officer. You are meant to protect the citizen and people. How would you feel if this  was the outcome of your loved ones life? Your daughter, son, sibling, relative or friend. Even an animal deserves some mercy.

America You disgust me. You treat humanity like dirt in your veins ..’ Where are all the black people in that country who are RICH and POWER-FULL? Have they all been bought, too?

To find the layers, that deep within, you need to first uncover; the blinds that layer, deep without.

Queen Charlotte – ‘First Black Queen of England’. #QueenCharlotte #Aremuorin #MercyfulGrace

Written by Aremuorin

Saw this post on Facebook and had to re share. Facsinating !!! While some critics allude to the fact that it is un substantiative, I marvel, at their ignorance:

“There were Black people here when the Romans arrived, so she probably was not the first.”

My stance is

“Well, until there is evidence otherwise, snap! She is. Notably and worthy. A Queen all the way. This is not flattery.”

image

Princess Sophie Charlotte was born in 1744. She was the first Black Queen of England.

Charlotte was the eighth child of the Prince of Mirow, Germany, Charles Louis Frederick, and his wife, Elisabeth Albertina of Saxe-Hildburghausen. In 1752, when she was eight years old, Sophie Charlotte’s father died. As princess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Sophie Charlotte was descended directly from an African branch of the Portuguese Royal House, Margarita de Castro y Sousa.

Six different lines can be traced from Princess Sophie Charlotte back to Margarita de Castro y Sousa. She married George III of England on September 8, 1761, at the Chapel Royal in St James’s Palace, London, at the age of 17 years of age becoming the Queen of England and Ireland.

image

There were conditions in the contract for marriage, ‘The young princess, join the Anglican church and be married according to Anglican rites, and never ever involve herself in politics’.

Aremuorin - Love Quote.jpg

Although the Queen had an interest in what was happening in the world, especially the war in America, she fulfilled her marital agreement. The Royal couple had fifteen children, thirteen of whom survived to adulthood. Their fourth eldest son was Edward Augustus, Duke of Kent, later fathered Queen Victoria.

Queen Charlotte made many contributions to Britain as it is today, though the evidence is not obvious or well publicized. Her African bloodline in the British royal family is not common knowledge.

Portraits of the Queen had been reduced to fiction of the Black Magi, until two art historians suggested that the definite African features of the paintings derived from actual subjects, not the minds of painters.

image

In Queen Charlotte’s era slavery was prevalent and the anti-slavery campaign was growing. Portrait painters of the royal family were expected to play down or soften Queen Charlotte’s African features.

Painters such as Sir Thomas Lawrence, who painted, Queen Charlotte in the autumn of 1789 had their paintings rejected by the royal couple who were not happy with the representations of the likeness of the Queen.

These portraits are amongst those that are available to view now, which could be seen as continuing the political interests of those that disapprove of a multi-racial royal family for Britain. Sir Allan Ramsey produced the most African representations of the Queen and was responsible for the majority of the paintings of the Queen.

IMG_20200104_170529_190.jpg

Ramsey’s inclination to paint truer versions of the Queen could be seen to have come from being ‘an anti-slavery intellectual of his day.

The Coronation painting by Ramsey, of the Queen was sent out to the colonies/commonwealth and played a subtle political role in the anti-slavery movement. Johann Zoffany also frequently painted the Royal family in informal family scenes.

image

Queen Charlotte was a learned character, her letters indicate that she was well read and had interests in the fine arts. The Queen is known to have supported and been taught music by Johann Christian Bach. She was extremely generous to Bach’s wife after Bach’s death. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, at aged eight dedicated his Opus 3 piece to the Queen at her request.

Also an amateur botanist, Queen Charlotte helped to establish Kew Gardens bringing amongst others the Strelitzia Reginae, a flowering plant from South Africa.

The Queen who had the first one in her house in 1800 introduced the Christmas tree to England. It was said to be decorated with, ‘sweetmeats, almonds and raisins in papers, fruit and toys. Also the Queen Charlotte Maternity hospital was established in London. Set up as a charitable institution, it is the oldest maternity care institution in England.

image

Queen Charlotte died on November 17, 1818 at Dutch House in Surrey, now Kew Palace, in the presence of her eldest son, the Prince Regent. She is buried at St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

The only private writings that have survived are Queen Charlotte’s 444 letters to her closest confidant her older brother, Charles II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. On 23 May 1773 in a letter, the Queen felt she was in a position of privilege yet a task.

Her Christian faith was a protection and a method of endurance, as she quotes from the Bible and recognizes her role as a royal of God beyond her royal role on earth.

Aremuorin - Smile.gif

An exhibition took place in 2004, at the Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace displaying Charlotte and George’s collections and tastes in the arts. Queen Charlotte was the great great-great grandmother of the present Queen Elizabeth II who still lives in the expanded Buckingham House, now Buckingham Palace. Kew gardens still flourishes and is always being expanded, also the Queen Charlotte maternity hospital and many other places still carry her name in honor globally such as Charlotte town, Canada and Fort Charlotte, St Vincent, West Indies.

Just like you, there are many more in the dark. Share this ray of light with them, now. Now that you know ..’

We can’t be airy-fairy and lovey dovey twenty four seven. Thats not life. It’s not the real world. I recall trying to help a homeless friend through my church, genuinely and talked to the head of the music ministry. She explained to me – you are really nice and you are so trusting. I was not listening at the time.

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

Recently, again – went to sing, in another church, and the head of the graphics dept, said the same thing, in other words. You can be cute, but you have to be tough! Then, it started to unfold. Still, I yearn for the good in people but –

Just because people play nice, does not mean they are nice peeps. It’s the oldest trick in the book. Welcome to PR (Pure Rubbish) ..’ Actually, it’s revealing and profound, to meet people, who are, genuinely-confidently; bad, walking in their truths.

At least – you know what you are getting. They’ve come as they are, having, nothing to hide. I don’t dwell on it. However, I take great notes. Thats the dichotomy of life ..’

I had no idea how many guns were waiting to be fired the day, I rolled out of my mothers womb. If I did – I would have ran to Jesus a long time ago and never looked back !!! This may sound weird to no faith people, but for me, Jesus is one classy role model that’s matchless.

When he preached about forgiveness 70 x 7 a day, I later discovered the wisdom behind it. It’s not that you are a fool, or be a door mat, as much as, not becoming sterile; or closed off, to the chances; of meeting-attacting other beautiful souls into your life. The wisdom is – to ignore them for the larger part – so you don’t get depressed.

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Professor Green’ – Trust by Aremuorin

Professor Green

I trust nobody. Sometimes, I don’t even trust myself ..’ – Professor Green

Luckily, I have Jesus on stand by. My solid rock, and confident. He never changes, even if I, or they, or the haters ..’ What a truth to own.

Cuz, lets be honest, people will push you (mentally) to the limit with their, shade sometimes. Before you know it – you are cursing them out ..’ God loves me – He’s not infatuated. He loves me in all my beautiful imperfections ..’

And on that – there is no shade. Mercy!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Racial Troubles’ – The African Injustice by Aremuorin

I posted this on-line recently – asking, folks a simple question.

MercyfulGrace.com - Reparation - Racism

Why are you telling us (black people) to forget about slavery, while you won’t tell the Jewish community to forget about the ‘Holocaust’. Talk about double standard hypocrisy. Is this so that you can do it again? I’m just saying .’ Mercyfulgrace

Little did I know, my audience was broader – than I imagined. Hence, I inferred, quickly, that a problem heard – is a problem shared. So no stresses. Then our cousin from the west, came and started with this

“Jews was also in slavery in Egypt, same as Christians, you can’t compare slavery with holocaust. Slavery was even in europe in middle age. Is not only black who was slave.”

And It all kicked off ..’

THIS IS TO TOMAS ..’

To begin with :: Why are you telling us (black people) to forget about slavery, while you won’t tell the Jewish community to forget about the ‘Holocaust’. Talk about double standard hypocrisy. Is this so that you can do it again? I’m just saying .’ MercyfulGrace.

Talk about ignorant – should listen, to friends saying one should avoid these sort of one sided viewed confrontations. The grammer alone gives me headache. Talk about IQ. Calling one’s citations minor cases ..’ What planet is the brother from?

Who said English should be everybody’s national language and the benchmark for literacy? That’s another propaganda and more imperial politics, if you asked me.

Go and tell the Dutch, French or Chinese that they are illiterate – or the Zulu’s, and see what they would do to you.

Many nations were fine until certain people were dropping bombs on them and stealing their economy. Worst part – denying it :: pretending, they WERE helping them. Next!

As for those giving back – I applaud it. Continue to do so – ‘genuinely’ – in good faith, but don’t insult us on the truth of our history as an African descendant, or black race, cuz we know the truth. The truth is always in Love* ::

Tomas – You are chatting pure no-sense. I told you to conserve your ignorance – yet you won’t listen.

Do you know that more than 10 million blacks alone went to the Americas and let’s not forget all the slaves that were held in the Brazilian European and Dutch areas. So already, that totals well over 11 million, but only 11 million died; in the holocaust in total! Ignoramus ::

Holocaust was the worst tragedy to humanity – on film, BUT OURS WAS NOT FILMED. YOU IGNORAMUS !!! Like I said – pay good service to UNESCO BY REPORTING ALL THE famous WHITE PEDOPHILES, you can name drop – unlike the black celebrities, in your cheap, juvenile, video.

They call some of your forefathers, around the world ‘Original waste man dad’ after he raped the black woman in slavery and left a mixed race child; he left them both! Original waste man dad.

Enough history lesson 101, for you today – cuz you wont find this in the white books – you read Once again, I implore you to conserve your ignorance. You know – at the end of the day – who is to say your pain is greater than my pain?

Why is it an issue when blacks speak out, on their injustices suffered historically – that some other races, try so hard to undermine it, unapologetically, with heresy and lies? Why Why Why. Or are we not human beings? I still don’t get it ..’. You can continue this thread here

Thank goodness – you can flick on youtube, and google history quicker than 1914. i.e.

Speaking of friends, here are some …’ In particular, chocolate brownie! Welcome to the world of brownie. Once you go brown, you’ll keep coming aroun’. A one love thats ever faithful, true and undeniably, dependable. I lurrve chocolate. Who does not love chocolate. Especially, the nutty one’s with lovely ice cream, dripping on top. Yummy.Okay, maybe – if you are allergic, or lactose intolerant. Might not be the case.
Àrèmúorin
Takes me back to when I first met my buddies. We were joking around, while I took a keen interest in this beauty. One taste of her – you are hooked. You’ll be going back for more. It’s a little guilty pleasure right now. I do go back for more. This was so good that I convinced my friends with me, to take a bite. Predictably, they were sold. As I remember; they ordered afterwards. I have to have you from time to time. Thou, the gym is going to be a little tougher, act to follow afterwards. Still won’t care. I have to have more.  You’re so creamy and guey on the inside. Warm, with a decadent taste of satisfaction, lingering ever, long after.
Àrèmúorin3
Amen to that!
When Jenny and I hung out too, this was also one of my fav chocolate desserts with her. Piped hot inside in a sea of chocolate sauce, topped with fresh strawberries. You make up for such indulgence with a healthy plate of salad prior. Who am I kidding. Yum yum …’ A little sweet tooth, don’t harm nobody!  Those were the days. All Hail The Fudge Cake ..’ Too sweet for comfort! lol
Àrèmúorin & Jenny

Approval – ‘Mercy Oh #God’ – #In14ways #MercyfulGrace

APPROVAL

Penguins

When you stop looking for peoples approval – your life becomes a whole lot more rosier. If you are a believer – and you walk with what you believe in your heart, no opinion can justify you before God – but, God himself.

IMG_20180910_150559_644.jpg

Haters are like dust. The bully nothing but pure air then they slowly disappear. Carry on fool ..’ – Aremuorin 

Let them talk :: Only God approves or disapproves. If I did everything based on approval – what a wasted life that would have been. Thank God for God! :: Jesus and the Holy Spirit. :: Thats whom I believe in.

MercyfulGraceBlog

The joke is far too real sometimes – with all this BS that comes up on my feed sometimes. It’s laughable. This self righteousness business going on, and all. Don’t make me say – this again – I’ve had enough now! Good Lord!

IMG_20180925_121154

Some things …’ Are meant for your eyes only. I love all my fans regardless of their #orientation. I despise any self righteousness. There’s nothing above love. When you stop looking for peoples approval – your life becomes.

Deep Truths, that would make you think, and run for cover, you’d find on this time line.
