A grateful heart!

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart. Psalms 9 : 1

My heart is filled with joy. I am thinking about it over and over again. J

My younger sister is doing her final year Engineering. She is staying away from my home for her studies. She reached my home yesterday and gave a parcel to both my dad and my mom. As soon as they opened it, they saw a beautiful saree for my mom and a shirt for my dad. My mom even thought that it was sent either by me or my brother. She was so surprised that those were bought by her before she boarded the bus to our hometown. 

To me, she is always a kid and so to my parents too. She and her friends are always so naughty and sometimes I worry about this. But this act of her shows that she behaves matured.

How great is my joy! I am sure my mom & dad too feel the same. The happiness is not because she bought something for them or saved her pocket money to buy dresses for them, but it is because how she was so thoughtful and she should have saved money for this for quite a few months. I am happy that the amount she has spent for them is way too much that I ever did even after working in IT industry for nearly 5 years. After all, she didn’t start working yet. Whether she meant this or not, to me it is like she has shown her gratefulness through this. She may forget this, but I am sure I and my mom & dad will never forget this.

Imagine how God would feel when He sees His children being thankful for all that He does in their lives! The one who never sleeps nor slumbers needs our attention. Just to have fellowship with someone, He created us. He looks up to us, waiting for the time when we would call up on His name!  More than the sacrifices & your offering, God needs you. Relationship gets stronger when enough time is spent. If you have fell down from the first love that you had for Him, then it is a gentle reminder that He still patiently waits for you!  Make Him happy!

Stay blessed!

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 …
