An Interesting Story – Neither Slumbers nor Sleeps

In a forest, a pregnant deer is about to give birth.
She finds a remote grass field near a strong-flowing river.
This seems a safe place.
Suddenly labour pains begin.

At the same moment, dark clouds gather around above & lightning starts a forest fire.
She looks to her left & sees a hunter with his bow extended pointing at her.
To her right, she spots a hungry lion approaching her.

What can the pregnant deer do?
She is in labour!

What will happen?
Will the deer survive?
Will she give birth to a fawn?
Will the fawn survive?
Or will everything be burnt by the forest fire?
Will she perish to the hunters’ arrow?
Will she die a horrible death at the hands of the hungry lion approaching her?

She is constrained by the fire on the one side & the flowing river on the other & boxed in by her natural predators.

What does she do?
She focuses on giving birth to a new life.

The sequence of events that follows are:

– Lightning strikes & blinds the hunter.
– He releases the arrow which zips past the deer & strikes the hungry lion.
– It starts to rain heavily, & the forest fire is slowly doused by the rain.
– The deer gives birth to a healthy fawn.

In our life too, there are moments of choice when we are confronted on αll sides with negative thoughts and possibilities.

Some thoughts are so powerful that they overcome us & overwhelm us.

Maybe we can learn from the deer.
The priority of the deer, in that given moment, was simply to give birth to a baby.

The rest was not in her hands & any action or reaction that changed her focus would have likely resulted in death or disaster.

Ask yourself,
Where is your focus?
Where is your faith and hope?

In the midst of any storm, do keep faith on the Creator always. He will never ever disappoint you. NEVER.

Remember, He neither slumbers nor sleeps…
One of the best I have read….

“The Black” Undeserved To Live – Loving Couple Life After Marriage, What Happened?

1892665-IPEYESHC-7

The Black – Inside You

The True Story behind every Life…..

A very loving couple have been married for over 10 years without any child and it was becoming their 11th year.

Steve and Sarah stayed with each other and greatly hoped that they will have a child before their 11th year of marriage runs out because they were under persuasion from friends and family members to get a divorce, but they couldn’t let go because of the strong bond of love between them.

Months passed and one day, while Dave was returning from work, he saw his wife walking down the road with a man.

The man had his arms around her neck and they looked very happy. For over a week, he saw the same man with his wife at various places and one evening, while Dave was returning from work he saw the man drop her off at the house after giving her a kiss on the cheek. Dave was angry and sad.

Two days later, after a hectic day at work, Dave was taking water with a glass jug from the dispenser when the phone rang.

He picked it up and the person said,”Hello dear, I’ll be coming to your house this evening to see you as promised. I hope…..”.

Dave hung-up the phone. It was a male voice and he was sure the person was the man he had always seen her with. He suddenly became shaky with the thought that he has lost his wife to another man. The glass jug fell from his hand and shattered into pieces.

His wife came running into the room asking,”Is everything okay?”. In anger he gave his wife a push and she fell. She wasn’t moving or  getting up. Dave then realized that she fell where he broke the glass jug.

A large piece of glass had pierced her. He felt her breath, pulse and heartbeat but there she lay lifeless. His wife was dead! In total confusion, he saw an envelope in her hand.

He took it, opened it and was shocked by its content -it was a letter. It reads:
“My loving husband, words cannot express how I feel so,

I had to write it down. I have been going to see a doctor for over a week and I wanted to be sure before I give you the news.

The doctor confirmed it that I am pregnant with a twin and our baby is due 2 months from now. The same doctor is my long lost brother whom I lost contact with after our marriage. He has promised to take care of me and our baby and give us the best without collecting a money.

He also promised to have dinner with us today. I am putting this on your favorite chair in the sitting room for you to remember the day you proposed to me and I had to write to you saying,

“Yes” because I was so happy. Thanks for staying by my side”. -Your loving wife .

The letter fell from his hand. There was a knock at the door and the same man he had seen with his wife came in and said,

”Hello Dave, I suppose I’m right. Its Max the brother of your wife and……”. Suddenly, Max noticed his sister lying in a pool of her blood.
He rushed her to the hospital and she was confirmed dead. Her twin baby gone.

Message OF THE STORY:

We should not be too quick to take unnecessary actions in our relationship or marriage. When we haven’t questioned our partner or spouse on what we saw heard about them.

Each of us have our faults. We shouldn’t be too fast to decide the judgement of others.

Have you thought of that thing you are doing wrong that no one sees?

Not everything you see, hear or believe about someone is true.

Moral OF THE STORY:

Always learn to control yourself under any condition or situation, irrespective of what you’ve heard or seen You never can tell… Can you?

Human Brain Changes When The Status Changed – Love Story

There was a blind girl who hated herself just because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She said that if she could only see the world, she would marry her boyfriend.

One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her and then she could see everything, including her boyfriend. Her boyfriend asked her, “now that you can see the world, will you marry me?”

The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him. Her boyfriend walked away in tears, and later wrote a letter to her saying:

“Just take care of my eyes dear.”

This is how human brain changes when the status changed. Only few remember what life was before, and who’s always been there even in the most painful situations.

The Lovely Little Girl With A Bitten Apple

Always-Delay-Judgement

Always Delay Judgement. A very worth file read!

A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: “my sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?”

The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.

The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum, and said: mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement.

Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.Which is why we should never only focus on the surface and judge others without understanding them first.

Those who like to pay the bill, do so not because they are loaded, but because they value friendship above money.

Those who take the initiative at work, do so not because they are stupid but because they understand the concept of responsibility.

Those who apologise first after a fight, do so not because they are wrong but because they value the people around them.

Those who are willing to help you, do so not because they owe you any thing but because they see you as a true friend.

Those who often text you, do so not because they have nothing better to do but because you are in their heart.

One day, all of us will get separated from each other; we will miss our conversations of everything & nothing; the dreams that we had. Days will pass by, months, years, until this contact becomes rare…

One day our children will see our pictures and ask “Who are these people? “And we will smile with invisible tears because a heart is touched with a strong word and you will say: “IT WAS THEM THAT I HAD THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE WITH”

Make Your Life Colorful!

Write Your Worries In The Sand, Carve Your Blessings in Stone

This story tells of two friends who were walking through the desert. At some point in the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face.

The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.”

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him.

After the friend recovered from nearly drowning, he wrote on a stone: “TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE.”

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand, but now you write on a stone… why?”

The other friend replied “When someone hurts us, we should write it in sand… where the winds of forgiveness can erase it from view. But, when someone does something good for us, we should engrave it in stone… where no wind can ever remove it.”

SO, WRITE YOUR HURTS IN THE SAND, AND FORGET THEM.

BUT CARVE YOUR BENEFITS IN STONE, TO BE REMEMBERED.
