What is that?

Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you. Exodus 20 : 12


Good morning, friends. I watched a video and it's too good conveying the following.

A gentleman reads the newspaper and his father sits beside him in the garden. The old man hears some sound from the near by bush and asks his son, "What is that?". His son turns around and replies, "It is a sparrow." A few seconds later, the father again asks, "What is that?" The young man gets tensed somehow, but replies, "I just now told you father. It's a sparrow." Then the sparrow flies and sits here and there making sound. He again asks, "What is that?" The son replies, "A sparrow dada, a sparrow" and he spells it out, "a s-p-a-r-r-o-w" and starts shouting, "Why are you doing this? I told you so many times. It's a sparrow. Can't you get it?" The old man starts walking inside the house and brings his old diary. He opens it up and turns it till he finds something and asks his son to read it aloud. The man reads, "Today my youngest son who a few days ago turned three was sitting with me in a park when a sparrow sat in front of us. My son asked 21 times what it was. I answered it 21 times that it was a sparrow. I hugged him every single time he asked me the same question again and again without getting mad, feeling affection for my innocent little boy." The guy stops reading and starts hugging and kissing his loving father.

Are you getting what it conveys? I watched it again and again. I have never seen my mom and dad buying something costlier for themselves, eating delicious food, going to tourist spots, etc,... They silently and willingly watch me enjoying everything. Whenever I think of my parents and the love they have towards me, I simply ask myself some questions. "Am I really worthy of this great love? How many times have I neglected their simple desires? How many times have I reciprocated the love I get from them? Or at least how often I pray for them? bla bla..." See, it is not too late to support them spiritually, financially, mentally with love. Better late than never. Because they deserve it!!

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
