A word of prayer

I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. Psalm 69:30

All is well

A mantra to bring peace to the soul, a nudge to right course is what it contains. Even though deep down I know very well that all is not well, just by saying it aloud is an instant lift and a positive affirmation. A peace keeping deal!

Even if you are in a dire situation, the courage to chant these magic words will instantly work in favor for you. Remember to firmly trust and believe in it. As the hymn itself says;

whatever my lot,
Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul…

Hope all is well with you as well,

Love prevails!

Love prevails!
Love conceals the fault
and is always content.
Love lightens up
and eases everything;
bends the rules,
penetrates through
and perfects everything

 

True shining stars

Happy Father's day..

The greatest gift I ever had come from God; I call him dad. Unknown 

One father is more than a hundred school masters – George Herbert 

He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. Clarence Budington Kelland 

The word ‘father’ holds everything to a child; you’re obliged to safeguard his/her trust. Even though there aren’t any accolades for fathers, their affable and gracious presence are so precious than any other presents. They’re the true shinning stars!  Their teachings are pearl of wisdom to their children. 

Even though darn strict, I always enjoyed my father’s presence – be it his advice, sarcastic jokes or at times punishment – the time I got to spent with him and be around him were all still special to me. Even better time was my short time with my grandpa! The most precious memory I have is my granddad’s last blessings to his only granddaughter  before his passing. Even though I was away at the time, he waited until I reached home to hold me and bless me. Imagine the scene where people and priests are waiting to bid goodbye and my grandpa still holding on his hope to see me for one last time. I was just two years at the time. Even though the scenario was such tensed at the time, I’m thankful for his last minute effort to bless me! Then he closed his eyes and went to be with the Lord! The blessed and cherished  memory  that’s just mine!

Now as for my kids, they adore their dad. His presence is simply a joyful and peaceful paradise for them. That made me conclude that; it doesn’t matter who you are in this world, what matters is what you are in front of your children. These small beings are looking up to you way more than their mothers since you possess something divine by nature. You are the strong root that holds the entire family with the unconditional love, integrity and trust.

Get them talk proudly about you to others, come home with an open and blameless heart. As it says in the Bible, Train up a child in the way which he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.  And that’s the greatest joy and accomplishment in life!

Since that’s the scenario, spring out and continue being a shining star by doing simple yet priceless tasks in the family. Pay close attention to every small and big things your kids do with encouraging words and motivate them whilst you nurture, care and protect them against insidious pleasures and fake identities out there.

Life is darn short and fragile, yet more prone to clutter our hearts with failures, disappointments, frustrations and confusions that often tend us totally oblivious to the bright side of life. But, life matters!

Let me retire by wishing all the fathers who run life’s race, have their lives filled with abundance of fun and healthy relationship with their children and lead an interesting and pleasant life to shine through as a father… Let the Heaven pour lots of blessings on you!

Happy Father’s Day!!

Five bonus hints for life

IMG_4464-4

Recently received it as a forwarded mail by one of my friends and worth reading it, I believe.

Hidden deep in each line, there is something to warm our hearts and assuage the immense fear of piecing together puzzles within the whole concept of life, with a sense of comfort. 

Often intrigued by life’s ambiguous game that needs our utmost attention on minor details at times, those sheer moments that slipped away in minute ways… read on;

Here’s five bonus hints for life;

We are not put on earth for ourselves, but are placed here for each other. If you are there always for others, then in time of need, someone will be there for you. Theodore Reik

Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, because hate in your heart will consume you too. Will Smith

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, another is busy making mistakes and becoming superior. Bernadette Devlin

Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you; it probably hurts the other too. Unknown

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make most of everything that comes along their way. Unknown

Willingness is essential

P1100887-7

The bird is powered by its own life and by its motivation. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Willingness is essential in any initiation or in making an dream come true. Marcia Wieder

Happy Mother’s Day! A special tribute to a wonderful mother!

Rose vase-When you were small and just a touch away, I covered you with blankets against the cold air. But now that you are tall and out of reach, I fold my hands and cover you with prayer. Dona Maddux Cooper

Well, this is the day I have been waiting for. The best time to give tribute to a wonderful lady who sacrificed the deepest part of her life for the sake of her children even though she had to face hell load of struggles to go on with life in a normal way.

Like the declining sun that slowly gives way to the darkness, her marriage that spelled soulful, savaged rest of her life eventually brought her into a world amidst struggles and shattered expectations…As the puzzle solidified to near half a dozen babies under her wings that eventually made her roiled in her uncanny whim to stay strong and indulged in own blessed motherly instincts to keep them always safe yet in a path of excellence. Today they are all well educated and are in better positions!

The way she ignored whatever would foment the grudge and the hindrances in a peaceful oblivion were all moved by her million little rays of hope on her children, eventually made her a winner! Till date, the blessed sight of her pray in the early morning and well thought life style are sufficient enough to inspire and enthrall any one! Hats off to her!

Happy Mothers’ Day!
