Any thing that comes to my mind..
Literally simple thoughts that spark through out a day in my life…
Thoughts I have scribbled on my Facebook since I started one…
So here are my scribbles….
1. I know that I am not alone when I feel like I am. I know that God is still by my side no matter what. Dear God, please answer my prayers. Thank you God. Amen…
2. People hurt me, God healed me. ♥ People humiliated me, God comforted me. ♥ People judged me, God justified me. ♥
My God will never get tired of loving me!!! ♥
4. wonderful prayer of a 5 year old…”Dear God, please take care of my daddy, mommy, sister, brother, my doggy and me. Oh, please take care of yourself, God. If anything happens to you, we’re gonna be in a big mess. Also, Dear God, who do we pray to when you go on a vacation????”
5. ”Even God cannot sink this ship!” Proclaimed Titanic, 100 years ago before it became a memorable disaster.. Praying for all those who remember their loved ones .. One lesson for us to learn from Titanic – “Pride goes before fall”!!!
6. Swami Vivekananda was congratulated by lots for his speech at UN; “Oh Swamiji, your speech was incredible.
So inspiring and uplifting. It was just wonderful!” He looked
sweetly into his eyes and replied, “Yes, it was wonderful. I too
was listening!!” In short: The plans of the heart belongs to man, but the LORD gives the right words!!
7. ”I pray you’ll be our eyes, and watch us where we go…
And help us to be wise in times when we don’t know
Let this be our prayer, just like every child
Who needs to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe… ” (Courtesy: Celine Dion)
8. R is hearing the roar of rain pouring down on the roof of office.. WOW! Wish to make paper boats and see them float away…Miss the thunder and lightning effects..Literal April Showers…:D
9. admires the English countryside! Flooded, rushing rivers, winding paths, stretching green fields, ready to bloom trees n silent grazing cattle! Simply picturesque! Adding to the beauty, its raining!! And my train is moving on…
10. survives a long day! Bending willow trees, the setting Sun, nests bound ravens, drooping daffodils all bidding me goodbye… As the evening clouds draw the curtain of darkness my train is now taking me home..
11. ”One is always a better person inside… All that has to be done is to peel away the layers..” (Duane Alan Hahn) So my question is.. Any number limit for the layers??
12. R is making her way onward in a morning train ride.. Window seat views evoking memories of not so long ago train journeys to Calicut.. River Dervent is now my Bharathapuzha! Well, Indian railways or Cross Country rails, trains are simply magical!!
13. realises as time moves on that .. “The important and difficult job is never to find the RIGHT ANSWERS; it is to find the RIGHT QUESTION!!” (Courtesy: Peter Drucker)
14. Is learning about child behaviour and management without actually having kids! I believe kids behave a lot like their parents so its good to train them first. Now my worry is that my kids will be like ME!! Only prayer? Dear Lord help me!
15. is literally like a ‘wet cat’ walking down the road! Smashing rains lashing me, n I ve lost the battle with my umbrella to the blowing winds!! I only wish I had wings! Cat with wings, ha! Meow…
16. ”Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it!!”(Courtesy: William Arthur Ward) So a question remains… Do you have an attitude of gratitude??
17. ”Sleep is the best meditation.” Says none other than Dalai Lama!! No wonder why students practice it right inside the classrooms during lectures…:P Now I know why I do it! I simply meditate…
18. wants to shout this to all parents who wants their kids to be like ‘THEM’!!! “Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of life’s longing for itself. They come through you, but not from you. Though they are with you, yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts. You may house their bodies, but not their souls. You may strive to be like them but seek not to make them like you.” Thanks Khalil Gibran…!
19. loved making Hot, Spicy, and Crispy Samosas for You Maggie and Your lil angels.. ♥ ♥ ♥ Indian Samosas for a Mexican Family!! Well, never thought being an International student came with a cooking bonus!! Total Pleasure!
20. says: For all the encouraging words you have told me to keep my chin up; For the friendly ‘Edo’ that you call me when we are more than friends; For all the long, phone call talks that we have these days; and also For all the times we have fallen on our knees together to pray – Amma.. I love you..♥ ♥ ♥ P.S. I miss our fights too..
21. Just saw ‘Rain, Hails, Sunshine, Wind, Thunder & Lightning!!! Within the last ten minutes!!! Now was it a live BBC Weather update OR Was God playing in the skies above????
22.”You suppose you are the trouble; But you are the cure!
You suppose that you are the lock on the door; But you are the key that opens it!
It’s too bad that you want to be someone else….
You don’t see your own face, your own beauty
Yet, no face is more beautiful than yours!!! ( Courtesy: Rumi)
So know your own value first!!
23. Two groups of men and women were told to decide a gender for Computer.
Men said computer was female because, ‘No one but the Creator understands their internal login and Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for later retrieval!’
