If up to this point in your life, your thinking & doing have not got you anywhere, & you seem so directionless, it’s time to rethink & may I suggest that you ponder over the underlining statements that follow below here.

5420545-pretty-caucasian-white-girl-pondering-or-thinking-outside-college-school

  • One great lesson I learned from my life . . . there is no market for your emotions, so never advertise your feelings, just show your attitude . . .

  • F – E – A – R   HAS TWO MEANINGS

    1. F – Forget, E – Everything, A – And, R – Run

    2. F – Face, E – Everything, A – And, R – Rise

  • Respect people who find time for you in their busy schedule. But love people who never look at their schedule when you need them.

  • When nails grow long, we cut nails not fingers. Similarly when misunderstanding grow up, cut your ego, not your relationship.

  • DO what YOU love. LOVE what YOU do.

  • We still love ourselves even doing many mistakes. Then how can we hate others for their single mistake? Seems strange but true.

  • Relationship never dies a natural death . . . They are murdered by Ego, Attitude and Ignorance.

  • Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, & your attitude when you have everything.

  • LIFE is very complicated. Don’t try to find answers, because when you find answers life changes the questions.

And last but not least . . .

  • HAPPINESS will never come to those who don’t appreciate what they already have . . .

Be happy & content. Life is the sum total of both giving & taking!

LIFE is so full of “Ifs”

Take the “Ifs” out of LIFE

Then LIFE will be right!

Think right

Think bright

Set your thinking to great height!

God’s Recall Notice

In the motor industry, we are most familiar with the question of vehicle recall. Much publicity is generated in the media over such expensive recall like Honda Australia on 30 March 2011 recalled more than 45,000 vehicles over an issue with the power steering hose that has the potential to start a fire under the bonnet. It could be for other problems relating to faulty brakes, electronic components, loose fasteners or faults with the potential to be a serious safety issue. No matter what costing millions to the prestige & image of the manufacturers, safety & security are held in foremost importance.

 Wikipedia – Michelangelo‘s The Creation of Adam

Now what of problems related to mankind? In the light of the above, it’s interesting to note what God will do to protect you! Just think how much more important are humans compared to motor vehicles! I bet you will never have heard it presented in terms of modern technology such as this!

(Someone sent me this message below. The content of which is awesome! Source: Unknown)

The Maker of all human beings (GOD) is recalling all units manufactured, regardless of make or year, due to a serious defect in the primary and central component of the heart.

This is due to a malfunction in the original prototype units code named Adam and Eve, resulting in the reproduction of the same defect in all subsequent units.

This defect has been identified as “Subsequential Internal Non-morality,” more commonly known as S.I.N., as it is primarily expressed.

Some of the symptoms include:

1. Loss of direction

2. Foul vocal emissions

3. Amnesia of origin

4. Lack of peace and joy

5. Selfish or violent behaviour

6. Depression or confusion

7. Fearfulness

8. Idolatry

9. Rebellion

The Manufacturer, who is neither liable nor at fault for this defect, is providing factory-authorized repair and service free of charge to correct this defect.

The Repair Technician, JESUS, has most generously offered to bear the entire burden of the staggering cost of these repairs. There is no additional fee required. 

The number to call for repair in all areas is: P-R-A-Y-E-R.

Once connected, please upload your burden of SIN through the REPENTANCE procedure. 

Next, download ATONEMENT from the Repair Technician, Jesus, into the heart component.

No matter how big or small the SIN defect is, Jesus will replace it with:

1. Love

2. Joy

3. Peace

4. Patience

5. Kindness

6. Goodness

7. Faithfulness

8. Gentleness

9. Self control

Please see the operating manual, the B.I.B.L.E. (BEST Instructions Before Leaving Earth) for further details on the use of these fixes.

WARNING: Continuing to operate the human being unit without correction voids any manufacturer warranties, exposing the unit to dangers and problems too numerous to list, and will result in the human unit being permanently impounded. For free emergency service, call on Jesus.

DANGER: The human being units not responding to this recall action will have to be scrapped in the furnace. The SIN defect will not be permitted to enter Heaven so as to prevent contamination of that facility. Thank you for your attention!

– GOD

P.S. Please assist where possible by notifying others of this important recall notice, and you may contact the Father any time by ‘Knee mail’!

Because HE Lives!

God Bless you

Have a Blessed Day

The Amazing Life of Ants

Andrey Pavlov, Russian photographer, creates these marvelous macro photographs of ants living their life just as some rural dwellers.

In many ways, ants can outwit, outlast, and outplay humans. Their complex, cooperative societies enable them to survive and thrive in conditions that would challenge the individual. Here are 10 fascinating facts about ants that just might convince you they’re superior to us.

Compared to the ants, if only man can work as hard there won’t be any worry about productive economy or democracy – for we just work for the Queen & the well-being of the community. If a man could run as fast for his size as an ant can he could run as fast as a racehorse.

Also, the average life expectancy of an ant is about 45-60 days. The ant has two eyes, each eye is made up of many smaller eyes and are called compound eyes.

There are over 10000 known species of ants. Each ant colony has at least one or more queens. The job of the Queen is to lay eggs which the worker ants look after. Worker ants are sterile, they look for food, look after the young and defend the nest from unwanted visitors.

Ants are clean and tidy insects. Some worker ants are given the job of taking out the rubbish from the nest and dumping them outside. Below are more amazing facts to fascinate you:

  1. Ants despite their diminutive size are capable of carrying objects 50 times their own body weight with their mandibles. If we had muscles in the same proportions as ants, we’d be able to heave a Hyundai over our heads!2.

  2. Soldier ants use their heads to plug the entrances to their nests and keep intruders from gaining access.
 Recognition as belonging to the same colony is through touching their heads.

3. Certain ant species defend plants in exchange for food and shelter.

4. The total biomass of all the ants on Earth is roughly equal to the total biomass of all the people on Earth. Scientists estimate there are at least 1.5 million ants on the planet for every human being.

5. Ants sometimes herd or tend to insects of other species, like aphids or leafhoppers.
Ants will do just about anything to get the sugary secretions of sap-sucking insects, called honeydew so as to keep the sweet stuff in close supply.

6. Ants will enslave other ants, keeping them captive and making them do work for the colony.

7. Ants lived alongside the dinosaurs.
This is evidenced by the finding of fossils of ants, leading scientists to estimate the appearance of ants on Earth as somewhere around 130 million years ago.

8. Ants started farming long before humans. The earliest evidence suggests ants began farming as early as 70 million years ago, in the early Tertiary period. Even more amazing, these ants used sophisticated horticultural techniques to enhance their crop yields. They secreted chemicals with antibiotic properties to inhibit mold growth, and devised fertilisation protocols using manure.

9. Some ants form “super colonies,” massive communities of ants that can stretch for thousands of miles.
 Each ant colony has a distinctive chemical profile that enables members of the group to recognise each other, and alerts the colony to the presence of strangers. Scientists recently discovered that massive super colonies in Europe, North America, and Japan all share the same chemical profile, meaning they are, in essence, a global super colony of ants.

10. Ants follow scent trails laid by scout ants to gather food.
By following pheromone trails created by other ants from the colony, foraging ants can gather and store food efficiently.

Weeping Buffalo Changing Lives

By P Chong                                                                                                     14 November 2011

At the abattoir, quite often strange happenings of animals crying go unnoticed by human beings. I was talking to my wife about the story below “of a sorrowful buffalo suddenly standing still, refusing to move forward, kneeling on its two front knees, and with tears streaming from its eyes,” when she recalled of her young days living in Taiping, Malaysia. She too had observed in the nearby abattoir of cows awaiting to be slaughtered crying aloud, seemingly knowing their fateful demise.

But this water buffalo had real tears that touched the hearts of the butchers & changing their lives!

 

The Buffalo was standing still, sad and frightened to tears.

According to China’s People’s News, whether people believe it or not, this incident actually happened in Hong Kong. TheWeekly World News reported that a group of workers were bringing a water buffalo into a packaging factory, ready to slaughter it to make steak and beef stew.

When they approached the front door of the slaughterhouse, the sorrowful buffalo suddenly stood still, refusing to move forward, kneeling on its two front knees, and had tears streaming from its eyes.

How could the buffalo be aware that it was going to be slaughtered, before entering the slaughterhouse? This shows that it was even more alert than many a person. “When I saw what is believed to be a stupid animal actually crying, and when I noticed that its eyes were full of fear and sadness, I could not help but shiver.” Extremely shocked by this, butcher Shiu Tat-Nin recalled: “I quickly called the other people to come and see, and they were as surprised as I was! We pushed and pulled the water buffalo, but it would not move; it just sat there crying constantly.”

Billy Fong, the boss of the Hong Kong packaging plant said, “Mankind has always thought that animals are not like people who can cry, but this buffalo is really sobbing like a baby!”

At that time there were at least a dozen strong, burly men present, but their hearts were softened by the buffalo’s crying, and those who were responsible for killing water buffaloes were even more touched by this, tears welling out of their eyes.

Buffalo weeping non-stop – When workers from other slaughterhouses heard the news, they also ran to the crying and kneeling buffalo, and the site was soon crowded with people who were astonished at what they saw. Three of them were so shocked that they said that from now on, even when they slaughter other kinds of animals, they will never forget that buffalo’s tears. 

At the point when a buffalo is crying and people are crying as well, we can all be sure that none of them will kill the buffalo now. Then the question was how to take care of this matter. Finally, they decided to buy the water buffalo with cash, and then they sent it to a Buddhist temple, for the monastic to take good care of it, so that it could be assured of living out its life peacefully.

When this decision was made, an amazing thing happened again: “When there was an assurance that the buffalo would not be killed, it finally agreed to move, got up, and it’s here with us.” How could a water buffalo understand human words? Shiu said: “Whether you believe it or not, this is really true, although it sounds really incredible. 

Undoubtedly, this buffalo has changed the lives of these butchers.

Have No Fear . . . God Is Near

"The Garden of Eden" by Thomas Cole ...

From the womb to the tomb there is but one room

And that’s up in heaven or down in Hell

Where you’d forever dwell & yell!

Morbid as it may sound, especially on this beautiful first day of Spring, nothing is further from the truth. Ever since the downfall of mankind through the disobedience of Adam & Eve, man has been cast out of the Garden of Eden into the realm of evil & temptations. However, Father God in His graciousness & everlasting mercy has forgiven us & forgotten that act of human disobedience, but the consequences of that act cannot be avoided. Our physical death, the pain of childbirth, sickness & ailments, unending human problems & sufferings are, to name some, the consequences of sin we have to bear.

There is no escaping. Death is a certainty. Death comes to everybody. It has no respect for class, status or creed. Popular writer-teacher Leo Buscaglia used to say, “Remember, no one will get out of this world alive!”

There is a wonderful legend of the servant of a wealthy merchant. He was in a marketplace of Baghdad securing provisions for his master when he had the most frightful experience of his life. When he rushed into his master’s house a few minutes later, his colour had drained completely from his face.

What’s the matter with you? It looks as though you have seen a ghost!” the master inquired.

Master,” the servant replied, “I have just seen DEATH in the marketplace, and when he saw me, he raised his arm to strike me. Please master, I am certain he means to take me. Loan me your fastest horse so that I can get away.”

But where will you go?” asked the merchant.

I will go to Samarra,” explained the servant. “DEATH will not find me there.”

So the merchant gave his servant the fastest horse in his stables, and the servant rode swiftly off to the city of Samarra where he hoped to hide.

The merchant later went to the market to get his own supplies. While there he too saw DEATH. So he inquired of DEATH, “Why did you raise your hand to strike my servant a while ago?”

Death replied, “Actually I meant him no harm ast that moment. Raising my hand was a gesture of surprise. You see, I didn’t exppect to find him here, for I have an appointment with him tonight at Samarra!”

The servant of Baghdad would discover that no matter how fast the horse not how far the journey, he could not escape his appointment with DEATH.

To allay you fear, here’s an amusing episode which bears out the best explanation of DEATH ever:

A sick man turned to his doctor as he was preparing to leave the examination room and said, Doctor, I am afraid to die. Tell me what lies on the other side.”

Very quietly, the doctor said, “I don’t know.”

You don’t know? You’re a Christian man, and don’t know what’s on the other side?”

The doctor was holding the handle of the door; on the other side came a sound of scratching and whining, and as he opened the door, a dog sprang into the room and leaped on him with an eager show of gladness.

Turning to the patient, the doctor said, Did you notice my dog? He’s never been in this room before. He didn’t know what was inside. He knew nothing except that his master was here, and when the door opened, he sprang in without fear. I know little of what is on the other side of death, but I do know one thing . . . I know my Master is there and that is enough.”

Have no trouble, have no fear

For God is near.

Put your faith & trust in Him

And He’ll guide you through thick & thin.
