Si 18:13 "DO NOT BE GOVERNED BY YOUR PASSIONS"

















pic credit:  Wikipedia.   Thanks






Passion is of the world.  The Lord has warned men about too much preoccupation
with the passions of one's heart.  Moderation is the key. 


If one allows himself to be ruled by his passion for the worldly desires as vices
and so on, he will be the laughing stock of his enemies at the end.  What is so sublime
as seeing a person so sober in his preoccupations and demeanour.  He is like a gold in a
hay stock of the earth.


Simplicity is beauty.  Anything that is gross and over the top is not of good taste.  Look at a man
shouting at the top of his voice, with all his passions on display.  It is not only shameful
in the eyes of men but abominable in the eyes of God.  Man was created sober and not
full of tempest and passion.  Man was created humble, joyful and kind.  Let The Holy Spirit
guide us on the right way to live and let us ask for the grace of wisdom and understanding.
Thus, we are averted from the passions that is not coming from the will of God for us!

THE ONLY ONE: POEM BY MARY VARGHESE




THE ONLY ONE-

Sent flowers every spring
Decorated the star-studded sky
The flaming ball by day
And the cool moonlit night
Made the thundering clouds
Shower drops of mercy
To satiate the parched land
Made new leaves to sprout
Embroidered this vast universe
With beauty untold,
Waiting yet to be revealed
To tell me how much You love
All these were messages
From your loving heart
Still when you looked down
You saw my empty heart
You knew only You could fill
The vacuum in this heart of mine
So You came down in human form
Emptied yourself on the Cross but for love
Just to fill my frail human heart!!!!!
Oh how great is Your Love!!
How tender, kind and sure!!!
The God of this Universe

Chose to dwell in this heart of mine!

JOKES: FORWARDED BY CHERIAN VARGHESE Cherian Varghese( Laughter is good for our health.) New World

One year, a husband decided to buy his mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a
Christmas gift...
The next year, he didn't buy her a gift.
When she asked him why, he replied, "Well, you still haven't used the
gift I bought you last year!"
And that's how the fight started

________________________________
I asked my wife, 'Where do you want to go for our anniversary?'
It warmed my heart to see her face melt in sweet appreciation.
'Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!' she said.
So I suggested, 'How about the kitchen?'
And that's when the fight started..

SURRENDER UNCONDITIONALLY TO THE LORD FORWARDED BY PRAYER AID

Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labour in vain. Unless the Lord guards the city, the guards keep watch in vain. It is vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to His beloved in sleep .”

Psalm 127:1-2

Unless the Lord blesses every plan and ambition of ours, it would very well come to nothing, or it will not bring us happiness and joy. The Lord wants every area of our life to be surrendered to Him. He does not seek to control us, rather He wants us to be saved from frustration and failure in the future. Only the Lord knows what lies in the future for us, and so He calls us to come to Him before we start to make plans for ourselves.

Yes, we must have our goals, and a vision for ourselves for sure, but we must always submit them all to Him, for without His blessings, guidance, wisdom, and discernment, we will be building in vain, only when we are within the Plan of God, completion of that project will be a joy.

If we have not already surrendered our plans to the Lord, let us stop and do so now. Let us ask Him for His forgiveness for trying to run our lives without Him, He is a merciful and compassionate God and will receive us with Love.
(Thanks to Jane Pimenta, an eminent writer for sending us a beautiful reflection
about utter abandonment to God's will and plan for our lives.  Excellent).  New World

TOMATO-BASED FOODS: LOWER RISK OF DEVELOPING PROSTRATE CANCER (18 PERCENT BASED ON RESEARCH)




pic credit: www.suburbangrandma.com

Need another excuse to get more tomato-based foods onto your plate and into your tummy? UK researchers have found that men who ate 10 portions of tomatoes each week have an 18 percent lower risk of developing prostate cancer. The researchers at the universities of Bristol, Cambridge and Oxford attributed the reduction to the antioxidant lycopene, which defends DNA and cells from damaging toxins. The results were published in the Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers.

FULL MANY A GLORIOUS MORNING: POEM BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE#FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL


                 FULL MANY A GLORIOUS MORNING
                           WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE



Full many a glorious morning have I seen
Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face,
And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace:
Even so my sun one only morn did shine
With all-triumphant splendor on my brow;
But out, alack he was but one hour mine;
The region cloud hath masked him from me now.
Yet him for this my love no white disdaineth;
Suns of the world may stain when
heaven's sun staineth.

Thanks to G. B. Harrison.  Book of English Poetry
