The LORD reigns forever



The LORD reigns forever;
he has established his throne for judgment.

He will judge the world in righteousness;
he will govern the peoples with justice.

The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed,
a stronghold in times of trouble.

Those who know your name will trust in you,
for you, LORD , have never forsaken those who seek you.

Psalm 9:7-10 NIV

_______________

The LORD is King forever and ever;
Nations have perished from His land.

O LORD, You have heard the desire of the humble;
You will strengthen their heart,
You will incline Your ear

To vindicate the orphan and the oppressed,
So that man who is of the earth
will no longer cause terror.

Psalm 10:16-18 NASB

_______________

May the glory of the LORD endure forever;
May the LORD rejoice in His works.

He looks on the earth, and it trembles;
He touches the hills, and they smoke.

Psalm 104:31,32 NKJV

_______________

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.

1 John 2:15-17 KJV

_______________

Glorious, eternal life belongs to those who belong to Him!

Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

My sweet sweet nephew, Isaac





My sweet nephew, Isaac, so funny.

The other day I was talking to him on the phone (while his mother's pregnant with his baby sister)

Me: Isaac, we have a cat, do you want it?

Isaac: Yes, of course

Me: Then let's exchange it with the baby in your mother's womb?

hesitated

Isaac: Why?

Me: Because we want a baby and we don't have any baby

Isaac: Oh..is that because my elder sister and I are so beautiful?

(laughed) Me: Yes, that is the reason

Isaac: Since we are so beautiful..you think that the baby will be beautiful too?

hahahaha

Me: Yes, of course. So, what do you say if we exchange your little sister with our cat?

After thingking for sometime...

Isaac: Is the cat pregnant?

Me: Yes

Isaac: So, if the cat is pregnant, can I keep the litters?

Me: Yes, of course, you can keep them

Isaac (with excitement in his voice): Ok then, the maid and I will come and take the cat tomorrow and you can take the baby as soon as she is born.

There, we got the agreement.

lol

God Gives Us Wisdom
For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.

Proverbs 2:6,7 NIV

_______________

Surely you desire truth in the inner parts;
you teach me wisdom in the inmost place.

Psalm 51:6 NIV

_______________

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God,
who gives generously to all without finding fault,
and it will be given to him.

James 1:5 NIV

_______________

God Loves You!

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

John 3:16-18 NIV

_______________

Thanks be unto God for His wonderful gift:
Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God is the object of
our faith; the only faith that saves is faith in Him.

The view was so great that day..the clouds..however, a bit sad the clouds became thick while the model took the pose




A day or two before I left, suprprisingly, the cloud decided to clear its shadow and the sun no longer shied away :)




..just added this to show how much I gained, lol. It was the day my cousin had a beautiful baby daughter

Mail vrs Email


I was writing a mail to a friend the other day when this guest of ours asked me

"Bte, are you writing a letter?"

Me (laughing): "Yes, I am. Isn't it funny? We are living in a computer world and I am writing a letter." and I laughed it off.

Then he said, with somehow a serious tone, "No, its not funny. In fact I love letters, it is priceless. Nothing will replace mails. It is so precious".

Me: "Hey, you know, you are right. It is priceless and I love receiving them. It is to be cherished".

May be I am a sentimental person. I remember when I read 'Firestarter' by Stephen King several years ago, the girl, the Firestarter burnt down a couple's house when the lady cried to her husband and said "I do not care about the furnitures but I lost all the love letters that you have written to me while you were in the army." I can feel her pain (though only a book, lol).

Yes, mails - all you have to do is take out the mail when you feel lonely, feel the sender's presence.

No problem is there is a power cut for 24/7, you can still read them.

They will never be deleted from the servers, in case you neglect to check your emails for months.

Free from virus or hackers or whatever there is in the internet world.

Well, that's a personal opinion :)

Just to make myself clearer, let me quote out lines from the song 'Love Letters' by Diana Krall -

Love letters straight from your heart
Keep us so near while we're apart
I'm not alone in the night
When I can have all the love you write

I memorize every line
I kiss the name that you sign
And darling, then I read again
Right from the start
Love letters straight from your heart

Isn't it strange?


I was browing my old emails and found this in my inbox:

"Isn't it strange ?"

Isn't it strange how Rs. 20/- seems like such a large
amount when
you donate it to temple, but
such a small amount
when you go shopping?

Isn't it strange how 2 hours
seem so long when
you're at place of worship, and how
short they seem when you're
watching a good movie?

Isn't it strange that you can't
find a word to say when
you're praying,
but you have no trouble
thinking what to talk about
with a friend?

Isn't it strange how difficult
and boring it is to read
one chapter of
the Bible/ Quran / Gita, but how easy
it is to read 100 pages of
a popular novel?

Isn't it strange how everyone
wants front-row-tickets
to concerts or
games, but they do whatever
is possible to sit at the last
row in a holy place?

Isn't it strange how we need to
know about an event for
temple 2-3
weeks before the day so we can
include it in our agenda, but we can
adjust it for other events in
the last minute?

Isn't it strange how difficult it
is to learn a fact about
God to share it
with others, but how easy
it is to learn, understand,
extend and repeat gossip?

Isn't it strange how we
believe everything
that magazines and newspapers
say, but we question the words in the
Bible and other holy books?

Isn't it strange how everyone
wants a place in
heaven, but they don't want
to believe, do, or say anything
to get there?




IT'S STRANGE ISN'T IT?
