Life a Journey

Life is a journey, enjoy the ride.
Make the most, leave aside your pride.
Time is short, the journey will end.
So try your best & do make amends.

It’s better to slow down,
Than to regret later.
Else, you will have no one around.
And deep within the pain would be greater.

The Fern and the Bamboo

By Paul C. Kerr

One day I decided to quit. I quit my job, my relationship, my spirituality. I wanted to quit my life. I went to the woods to have one last talk with God. "God", I said. "Can you give me one good reason not to quit?" His answer surprised me “Look around", He said. "Do you see the fern and the bamboo?" "Yes", I replied. "When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them. I gave them light. I gave them water.

The fern quickly grew from the earth. Its brilliant green covered the floor. Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo. In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful. And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed. But I did not quit on the bamboo". He said. "In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed.

But I would not quit. He said. "Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant. But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall. It had spent the five years growing roots. Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive. I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle." He said to me. "Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots. I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you.

Don't compare yourself to others." He said. "The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern, yet, they both make the forest beautiful." "Your time will come," God said to me. “You will rise high!" "How high should I rise?" I asked. "How high will the bamboo rise?" He asked in return. "As high as it can?" I questioned. "Yes." He said, "Give me glory by rising as high as you can." 

I left the forest and brought back this story. I hope these words can help you see that God will never give up on you. 

Never regret a day in your life. Good days give you Happiness. Bad days give you Experiences. Both are essential to life. Keep going. Happiness keeps you Sweet, Trials keep you Strong, Sorrows keep you Human, Failures keep you Humble, Success keeps You Glowing, But Only God keeps You Going! Have a great day! The Sun is shining!! God is so big He can cover the whole world with his Love and so small he can curl up inside your heart.

Tomorrow...another Today

Our innocence was at its very best,

When we looked at everything without any answers,

There was a time when even though we were not able to identify colors,

Our life was so truly colorful in every little sense.

In life’s pursuit we may have come a long way,

But what have we really gained and what have we left far away,

Do we regret anything or have we just resigned to the fact,

That all those memories are now passé and life has to go on the way it is.

When was the last time we treasured true peace within,

Or when was the last time we did not spoil our today for fear of tomorrow,

Do we have any answers or we’ve just stopped thinking about all this.

Nothing in life comes easy,

And it’s difficult to see everything in black or white,

But what are we gaining anyways, when at the end of the day you feel uneasy,

About the day that passed and what might be in store the next day.

Definitely there would be many incidents that would coz us a lot of dismay,

However, belief in oneself is all that matters at the end of the day,

It’s best to take things the way they come, and enjoy life to the fullest,

Rather than ruining another day, the tomorrow which would be another T:-)DAY.

James 1:22-25

Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and, after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. But the man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it—he will be blessed in what he does.

What’s in News?

Did you hear the latest? That female’s character is not good at all.

What was she thinking when she decided to spend time with her guy and his friends out that night.

She deserved it, she literally asked for it. What else justifies all this?

I heard she was seen smoking and drinking off late. Which girl from a good family will have all these habits?

These guys come from well known families, and were having a boy’s night out.

This girl might have been a real slut. Just look at the way she’s providing minute details to the media about the sequence of events that night.

It’s all over the place; she’s just trying to get some cheap publicity.

She’s just ruining the life of these 4 guys, when the first thing is she should not have been out that night alone.

As it is, evidence has proved that there are no signs of struggle on the body of the accused.

She seems to have enjoyed it, and now is making a fuss.

Case goes on for some time with just some sleazy headlines in the newspaper. A year passes by. Everything is forgotten. Accused deemed innocent. Victim made to feel Guilty.
