Love is kind!

Love is kind. 1 Corinthians 13:4b

Good morning!

Few years ago, we had a wonderful family festival in my Church. The family which came to lead us on that day enacted and conducted pretty simple games to reveal the simple but powerful truth behind them. A ninth grade girl told us a story which really touched the hearts of many. Here is her story:

A lady who was quite busy with cooking for her guests got upset when her little son walked behind her so closely wherever she went. At one point, she yelled at him and pushed him hard enough to make him cry. He ran out of the kitchen as fast as he could into his bedroom and wept a lot till he fell asleep. The lady, after she finished all her work in the kitchen, remembered what she had done to her son. When she went into his bedroom, she found him asleep on his bed. Then the Lord told her to return to the kitchen again. When she went, she saw many beautiful flowers in various colors scattered on the floor. She realized that her small boy had followed her wherever she went just to surprise his mother with her favorite flowers. She realized how badly she had hurt him without realizing that he was simply displaying his love for her. She immediately ran to the boy. She took him into her arms. She hugged him and kissed him as if she was seeing him after a very long absence.

What message does this story convey? Love has to be shared with those who deserve it. Many of us don’t hesitate to hurt those who are close to us. So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7 : 12) In other words, the Bible teaches us not to hurt anyone. It asks us to be kind to others in the same way we would expect them to be kind to us. Hurting others will take just a few minutes, but restoring the relationship may take years. In some cases, may never happen. The company for which we work may only remember us after we die until they find a resource to replace us. But the members of our family, especially our parents and our beloved ones will carry the pain throughout their lives. I love kids. I love to watch and play with them. But watching and playing with a child every day is really not that easy. But the precious parents look after their children with great care. A man who is 50 years remains always a child to his elderly parents. And the children deserve the full love of their parents. Those who have children, please take an oath that you will never bring your problems from work home with you. And let us all love our parents, because they are the ones who deserve it next to the Lord. Forget whatever happened in the past. Take this time as an opportunity to be kind and to show love to others. Be kinder than necessary to everyone, because we don’t know what pain they carry in their hearts.

May God bless!

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…
