Better late than never!

For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; neither hid, that shall not be known. Luke 12:2


Good morning to you all.

Mr. Barnes was a very wealthy man. He often noticed a particularly fine herd of cattle. He paid for it with the agreement that the cow would be delivered to his estate the following day. The next day as Mr. Barnes was out for his morning walk he saw a young boy trying his hardest to lead the cow over to Mr. Barnes's field. The boy, who did not know Mr. Barnes, called to him. “Please sir, would you come and help me with this cow? She is so stubborn!”

Mr. Barnes went over to help. As they walked along together he asked the boy, “How much do you expect to get for delivering the cow?” The boy stammered, “I don’t know, but I'm sure to get something because the people who are buying the cow live in that house, and those people are very kind to everyone.” By now the stubborn cow was walking along nicely, so Mr. Barnes excused himself and took a path through a wooded area that led to his back door.

As soon as he got into the house he gave one of his trusted workers a fifty-dollar bill and told him to give it to the boy who was delivering the cow. After the cow had been left at the estate and the boy was returning to the ranch, Mr. Barnes went out again and met the boy on the road. “Well, how much did you get?” asked Mr. Barnes. “Five dollars,” answered the boy. “Only five dollars? You must have gotten more than that,” said Mr. Barnes. “No,” answered the boy, “that's what I was given, and that was plenty, don't you think?” “No,” said Mr. Barnes. “I'm surprised it wasn't more. I know Mr. Barnes well, and I believe that if you come back with me you'll get more than five dollars.”

The boy agreed, and they walked back to the house together. When they went in Mr. Barnes called his hired worker. Mr. Barnes said to the man, “Your dishonesty has cost you your job and your good name. I hope you soon learn that dishonesty is not only very foolish but a terrible sin as well.” And he fired him on the spot.


I hope no more words are needed, as the story very clearly says breaking up the loyalty is sin. When the Lord created Adam and Eve, He longed to commune with them. He trusted them and He left them in Eden garden. But they listened to the serpent and sinned. We’re all the sinners by default. No one teaches a kid to tell lies when he does something wrong. As he grows, automatically the lies list grows longer, by default and so the other lists too. Stop here and think once and ask yourself these questions. “Am I worthy of the trust my Lord has on me?” “Is there any place or situation where I make my Jesus feel shy?” “Am I worthy of His great love?” “Am I really loyal to Him?” “Am I honest up to His expectations?” Remember there comes one day, when all our sins are exposed. It’s not too late to confess them and get out of them.

My pregnancy journey

I got married in Aug 2013, but never got to see positive Urine pregnancy test. NEVER! I won't say I was greatly disappointed as I was also waiting for few things between me and husband to settle down slowly and it took a while. Once things became alright everyone started expecting and wherever we went we got plenty of advice and tips. We were hesitant to take Sunday's classes due to the initial issues between us, but somehow for the past two years we have been teaching little children every Sunday. 
In the meantime, we tried multiple doctors (no big treatments) and were bored with the same repetitive scans and tests, which reported no issues as such. The last scans taken in 2017 reported I had little harmless cysts and they would take time to resolve and the doctor would stop even the few tablets I had to take on 5 days at the start of my cycle. I would have to be honest here. My cycle - can vary from 26 days to 60 days too. You can hardly guess what my fertile days are, includ…

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…

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…
