Prestige pressure cooker magic!



Before you assume anything from the title of the post, let me tell you that I am not a brand ambassador of Prestige pressure cookers in any way. :) Then why am I speaking about it? Well, the answer is, the Lord has been reminding me about an incident for the past few days and so I wanted to share it with you today.

I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Psalm 77 : 11, 12

3 years ago, when I lived with my friends in Chennai, my mom visited us for a few days. She has always been a great help to us. For example, I had a lot of clothes to be washed, and we didn’t have a washing machine. So, after I left for the office, she washed and dried them all. Then, during a holiday, around noon, she was cooking rice for me in a pressure cooker. When it was almost time for the cooker to whistle she had moved a little farther and started arranging my clothes inside a duffel bag. In the meantime she saw the cooker explode. It was not a Prestige pressure cooker. I was very thankful to God that she was not near the cooker when it exploded.  But from that time on, she insisted that I should only buy Prestige pressure cookers and nothing else.

Recently I had an issue with my Prestige pressure cooker, due to some mistakes on my part. So when I bought a new one, I specifically bought a Prestige pressure cooker, as I was reminded about my mom and what happened 3 years back.

This is a very good example of why parents must teach their children of the good things, along with the reason, and should live a life that their children cannot forget until their last breath.

In Psalm 77:11-20, the Psalmist, in spite of the issues he had, remembers what God had done in the past. This helped him overcome them. Remember, God alone is the strength of our heart. No one (Nothing) else can be our strength anytime. If you feel that the job you possess, or the knowledge you have, or even your family is your strength, then it is time for you to erase this from your heart, and let God be your strength. When you do this, you cannot avoid passing the same to others, and especially to your children. Because you cannot resist in passing on the best you have for them no, matter how evil you think you are. Please do not be ignorant of what God is doing in your lives. He is able to use you as a media and will do the same to others too.

May God bless you! Have a blessed day!

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 …
