2nd March 2014 marked the Silver Jubilee for my parents. Their 25th anniversary. What follows is a poem, a small effort of mine, for them from me.
Although cocoa trees grew wild in Central America since pre-historic times, it was not until around 600AD when Maya Indians established cocoa plantations in the Yucatan region of Mexico. The Mayans and later the Aztecs took the cocoa bean from … Continue reading
Our lives are but fine weavings
That God and we prepare
Each life becomes a fabric planned
And fashioned in His care
We may not always see just how
The weavings intertwine,
But we must trust the Master’s hand
And follow His design
For He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side,
While we must look from underneath
And trust in Him to guide…
Sometimes a strand of sorrow
is added to His plan,
And though it’s difficult for us,
We still must understand
That it’s He who fills the shuttle,
It’s He Who knows what’s best
So we must weave in patience,
And leave to him the rest…
Not till the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly
Shall God unveil the canvas
And explain the reasons why
The dark threads are as needed
In the Master’s skillful hand
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned
Punctuality is one of those words that have come to loose their meaning; atleast in the society that we dwell in.
Punctuality, as a lot of people have started to believe that it means being on time for work or being on time for school. But this is not the whole sphere and scope of this word but just a little aspect of it!
If you promise your friend to meet him / her at a particular time, make sure that you are there because that is punctuality too!
When you tell your mom that you will be back by a certain time, you have to be; not because of what you have promised and to whom you have made the promise but because that is inclusive in being punctual as well!
So if and when you know that you can not be at a certain place at a certain time, better not make that appointment and have the time changed to such you could abide to (Ofcourse that does not go for the time of your office and school ;)).
