God gave me an angel !

Image
God gave me an angel right here on earth
She taught me values and gave me self worth

She guides me though life with her wisdom,
God’s light…she steers me from wrong,
and leads me towards right.

She stands by my side,
When things are rough.
She taught me in bad times,
We need to be tough.

She’s there when I need her,
Through out all my years.
She laughs with me in happy times,
And comforts my tears.

My angel on earth was sent from above,
She’s paid not in wages but with eternal love,
She’s been my confidante, my rock, my protector.

And when God says her time is through,
I know I won’t forget her.
She needs not a halo or silken wings of grace,
For the glory of God’s love shines upon her face.

My guardian angel,
Can be replaced by no other.
She’s God’s gift to me,
I call her my dear mother !

It is hard to believe that you are not coming back,
I cannot be strong; it is courage that I lack.
It has been months since your death happened,
Although it still seems like yesterday.

But sometimes it feels like you are somewh…

Faith in God

Image
No coward soul is mine,
No trembler in the world's storm-troubled sphere:
I see Heaven's glories shine,
And faith shines equal, arming me from Fear. 

O God within my breast,
Almighty, ever-present Deity!
Life - that in me hast rest,
As I - Undying Life- have power in Thee !

Vain are the thousand creeds
That move men's hearts, unutterably vain;
Worthless as withered weeds
Or idlest froth amid the boundless main.

To waken doubt in one
Holding so fast by Thine infinity;
So surely anchored on
The steadfast rock of immortality.

With wide-embracing love
Thy Spirit animates eternal years,
Pervades and broods above,
Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates and rears.

Though Earth and moon were gone,
And suns and universes ceased to be,
And Thou wert left alone,
Every Existence would exist in Thee.

There is not room for Death,
Nor atom that his might could render void:
Thou - Thou art Being and Breath,
And what Thou art may never be destroyed.

By Emily Bronte

Listen the music of life !

Image
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round ?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground ?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight ?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night ?

You better slow down,  don’t dance so fast;
Time is short,  the music won’t last.

Do you run through,  each day on the fly ?
When you ask “How are you ?”,  Do you hear the reply ?

When the day is done,  do you lie in your bed;
With the next hundred chores,  running through your head ?

You would better slow down,  don’t dance so fast;
Time is short,  the music won’t last.

Ever told your child,  we will do it tomorrow ?
And in your hast,  Not see his sorrow ?

Ever lost touch,  let a good friendship die;
Cause you never had time,  to call and say “Hi” ?

You would better slow down,  don’t dance so fast;
Time is short,  the music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere;
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day;
It is like an unopened gift… Thrown away.

Life is not a race,  do take it slower;
H…

The one you feed !

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people. He said, 'My son, the battle is between two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, confidence, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.'

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied, 'The one you feed.' So always think positive and be the master of self not the slave.
Who looks outside, dreams; Who looks inside, awakes. ~ Carl Jung

Delight Eternal

These are few drops from the ocean of infinite (Upanishads)

(1) Transliteration :

Yo vai bhuma tat sukham,
Nalpe sukham asti,
Bhumaiva sukham. ...Upanishada...

Translation :

The Infinite is the satisfying happiness.
In the finite no happiness can ever breathe.
The Infinite alone is the fulfilling happiness.

Meaning :

The Life Infinite is the Delight Infinite.
The finite is a stranger to the infinite Happiness.
Infinity without Delight means the creation without a Creator.
Indeed, this is absurd.
Delight without Infinity means the Creator without the creation.
Indeed, this is equally absurd.

(2) Transliteration :

Anandadd hy eva khalv imani bhutani jayante,
Anandena jatani jivanti
Anandam prayantyabhisam visanti...Upanishada...

From Delight we came into existence.
In Delight we grow.
At the end of our journey’s close,
Into Delight we retire.

Meaning :

God has written an open letter to His human children.
His letter runs:
“My sweetest children,
you are the only delight of
My un…
