THE FLOWERS IN THE MEADOW
*********
A LIMERICK
ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP
I WAS WALKING IN THE MEADOW

PSALM 14 "I Will Praise Your Name Forever"


"I will praise your Name forever my King and my God."

When we praise the Lord, we feel good!   Yes, because instilled in our very being is the predisposition to praise Him.  God is our King.  We admire our King, we love our King and we praise our King.


Why not?  God gave us everything we need and will provide for all the things we need in the future!  Of course, we need to pray.  It's not like we just wait till nothing happens.  The grace of God is always available, but as good children of God, we make our intentions clear to God.  He likes our hearts to be unwavering, though if we fail, God will accept and embrace us as long as we repent of our sins.


Let us pray today to our Almighty Father to grant us the grace of prayer and supplications.  That our hearts and souls be dedicated to Him.  That our allegiance to Him will last forever.  Alleluia!!!
All in the Most Holy Name of Jesus.  Amen.

THE FASCINATING BROWN COLOUR# REFLECTIONS BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

THE FASCINATING BROWN COLOUR


It is a colour that is neither neutral nor glaring.
The mellow brown has not only fascinated
me but generations. Well, sometimes red is quite
really a bold color;I am not saying it's not stunning
but it makes quite a statement.


Black color is sometimes elegant especially
if you are attending a dinner or formal
occasions. The ebony shade is simply
attractive; enigmatic and mysterious.


Green colour reminds me of the fresh meadows.
Actually, it symbolises life and vitality. It is also
fresh and luscious as the dew.


The purple colour is simply divine. It reminds us
of something transcendent, not ordinary but
beyond the senses. But sometimes, it could be
overwhelming in a sense!


Anyhow, the brown colour is mystifying, whether
the light brown, dark or chocolaty. There is really
something in this colour that attracts the eyes.
O' I remember why it's beautiful! I love autumn!

THINKING OF OUR TIME TOGETHER: STORY FORWARDED BY SR ELSIE BABY



ARE YOU AT THE EFFECT OF THE SITUATION?

(Sr.ELSIE Baby: A friend sent me this story:)

A young woman went to her mother and told her about her life and how things were so hard for her. She did not know how she was going to survive and wanted to give up. She was tired of fighting and struggling. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.
Her mother took her to the kitchen. She filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the last she placed ground coffee beans. She let them sit and boil; without saying a word.
In about twenty minutes she turned off the burners. She fished the carrots out and placed them in a bowl. She pulled the eggs out and placed them in a bowl. Then she ladled the coffee out and placed it in a bowl.
Turning to her daughter, she asked, ' Tell me what you see.'
'Carrots, eggs, and coffee,' she replied.
Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell, she observed the hard boiled egg.
Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled as she tasted its rich aroma. The daughter then asked, 'What does it mean , mother?'
Her mother explained that! Each of these objects had faced the same adversity: boiling water. Each reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard, and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. Its thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its inside became hardened. The ground coffee beans were
Unique, however. After they were in the boiling water, they had changed the water.

'Which are you?' she asked her daughter. 'When adversity knocks on your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?
Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and lose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I have a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or some other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside am I bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart?
Or am I like the coffee bean? The bean actually changes the hot water, the very circumstance that brings the pain. When the water gets hot, it releases the fragrance and flavor. If you are like the bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you. When the hour is
The darkest and trials are their greatest do you elevate yourself to another level?
How do you handle adversity? Are you a carrot, an egg or a coffee bean?

May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way. The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can't go forward in.

Life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so at the end, you're the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.
You might want to send this message to those people who mean something to you to those who have touched your life in one way or another; to those who make you smile when you really need it; to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down; to those whose friendship you appreciate; to those who are so meaningful in your life.

May we all be coffee!!!!!!Realize Your Inner Magnificence

ME AND MY BOSS: JOKES FORWARDED BY ZOORJEE

ME and MY BOSS

When I Take a long time to finish, I am slow, When my boss takes a long time, he is thorough When I don't do it, I am lazy, When my boss does not do it, he is busy, When I do something without being told, I am trying to be smart, When my boss does the same, he takes the initiative,

When I please my boss, I am apple polishing, When my boss pleases his boss, He is cooperating, When I make a mistake, I' am an idiot.When my boss makes a mistake, He's only human.

When I am out of the office, I am wandering around.When my boss is out of the office, He's on business.

When I am on a day off sick, I am always sick.When my boss is a day off sick, He must be very ill. When I apply for leave, I must be going for an interview .When my boss applies for leave,it's because he's overworked When I do good,my boss never remembers, When I do wrong,he never forgets

WHY DO I LOVE YOU? POEM BY ROY CROFT FORWARDED BY THOMAS PHILIP RANNI

WHY DO I LOVE YOU ? FORWARDED BY THOMAS PHILIP RANNI
WHY DO I LOVE YOU ?
BY
ROY CROFT

I love you,
Not only for what you are,
But for what I am
When I am with you.

I love you
Not only for what
You have made of yourself,
But for what
You are making of me.

I love you
For ignoring the possibilities
Of the fool in me
And for laying firm  hold
Of the possibilities for good.

Why do I love you?

I love you
For closing your eyes
To the discords-
And for adding to the music in me
By worshipful listening.

I love you because you
Are helping me to make
Of the lumber of my life
Not a tavern
But a temple;
And out of the words
Of my every day
Not a reproach
But a song.

I love you
Because you have done
More than any creed
To make me happy.

You have done it
Without a word,
Without a touch,
Without a sign,
You have done it
Just by being yourself.

After all
Perhaps that is what
Love means.

-ROY CROFT

PRECIOUS MOMENTS: POEM FORWARDED BY MARY VARGHESE
















THE PRECIOUS MOMENTS:
BY MARY VARGHESE

Moments,precious moments-
leave us wiser,
lessons unlearnt in classrooms
are learnt in the depths
of such moments,rare.
Understanding the magic of living,
the magic of cherishing and savoring
beautiful relationships.
Beautiful relationships are beautiful
not just because of the moment you shared
gazing into each other's eyes.
For the magic takes over......
when you rivet your gaze from each other's eyes......
To gaze TOGETHER..........
on to the orange horizon meeting the sea,
violent and calm;
Walking hand in hand,
side by side, treading the road less traveled.
as the rail tracks running parallel
Can we dare to tread the
UNTRODDEN PATH.....
THE PATH LESS TRAVELED.

A BEAUTIFUL ROMANTIC POEM FORWARDED BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL

A BEAUTIFUL ROMANTIC POEM: BY CYNTHIA ABEGAIL BERNARDO

(The following is one of the very beautiful poems, we have come across)New World Editorial Board
Poem

This is a romantic poem for lovers...


The campfire burning by countryside,
Gazing at you near the river wide
Red flames so warm I truly felt,
As my heart incensed not dearth.

Hazel eyes twinkling like stars,
Irises widen as if with bars
Blushing cheeks cannot hide,
With cold hands by the night.

Your ways struck me completely,
Clever mind like Solomon really
With heart so pure I reckoned,
Chivalry I saw through the season.

Now I am beginning to love you,
Stop me now by the bayou,
Could not sleep but think of you,
Can you feel it, my Romeo?

You are far, yet so near,
Why has this happened at rear?
I have to hide it forever,
I may not have you, ever!

ISAIAH 42: 6-7 "SAVING JUSTICE" by Cynthia Abegail





"I, God have called you in saving justice,

I have grasped you by the hand and shaped

you, I have made you a covenant of the people

and light to the nations, to open the eyes of the

blind, to free captives from prison, and those

who live in darkness from dungeon"  Isa 42: 6-7


God saves, from the beginning till the end.  God always seek the sinners
from the dungeons of helplessness and hopelessness!  We just have to
respond to God's generous offer of salvation.

He enlightens our way, he stretches his saving hand to the poor and needy.
Pray at all times that we may never be put to the test.  Pray, too not only
for ourselves but mostly for our brothers and sisters who are lost and straying
from the faith.  Worship only Him who created, who saves and who loves
all of us unconditionally!

Cynthia Abegail

Jn 1: 47-51 "Angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man


"When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of him, 'Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.'  Nathanael asked him, 'Where did you come to know me!  Jesus answered, 'I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.' Nathanael replied, 'Rabbi, you are the Son of God!  You are the King of Israel!  Jesus answered, 'Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree?  You will see greater things than these.'  And he said to him, 'Very truly I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.  (Jn 1: 47-51)


Angels minister to God.  Wherever Jesus is, angels announce His coming.  Angels could also announce news just like in Annunciation and on the birth of Jesus.  Pray that your Guardian Angel will be with you and your family all of the time.
