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

I THOUGHT OF A FUNNY FELLOW

YOU NEED TO SMILE: BY ABRAHAM G

This is from me to you because you are so Special!

Dream......... ..makes all things possible
Hope..............makes all things work
Love ..............makes all things beautiful
Smile..............makes all above work possible
The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.
Happiness always looks small when you hold it in your hands... But when you learn to share it , you will realize how big and precious it is!!
And for that you need to smile.

A STORY WITH GLOWING COLORS: FORWARDED BY ELSIE BABY

A STORY WITH GLOWING COLORS: SR ELSIE BABY


( Before the Year's end, here is another nice story forwarded by our eminent writer Elsie Baby. A very heart touching one!!. Many times in our own life, we hear the voice of God and we are being led by His Hands and reach our destination. Thanks God for this story for our readers
New World)


This will give you the chills....... GOOD chills.
A young man had been to Wednesday Night Bible Study. The Pastor had shared about listening to God and obeying the Lord's voice .
The young man couldn't help but wonder, 'Does God still speak to people?'
After service, he went out with some friends for coffee and pie and they discussed the message. Several different ones talked about how God had led them in different ways.
It was about ten o'clock when the young man started driving home. Sitting in his car, he just began to pray,
'God...If you still speak to people, speak to me. I will listen. I will do my best to obey.'
As he drove down the main street of his town, he had the strangest thought to stop and buy a gallon of milk. He shook his head and said out loud, 'God is that you?'
He didn't get a reply and started on toward home.
But again, the thought, buy a gallon of milk.
The young man thought about Samuel and how he didn't recognize the voice of God, and how little Samuel ran to Eli.
'Okay, God, in case that is You, I will buy the milk.'
It didn't seem like too hard a test of obedience. He could always use the milk. He stopped and purchased the gallon of milk and started off toward home.
As he passed Seventh Street, he again felt the urge,
'Turn Down that street.' This is crazy he thought, and drove on past the intersection.
Again, he felt that he should turn down Seventh Street .....
At the next intersection, he turned back and headed down Seventh. Half jokingly, he said out loud, 'Okay, God, I will.'
He drove several blocks, when suddenly, he felt like he should stop. He pulled over to the curb and looked around. He was in a semi- commercial area of the town.
It wasn't the best but it wasn't the worst of neighbourhoods either.
The businesses were closed and most of the houses looked dark like the people were already in bed.
Again, he sensed something, 'Go and give the milk to the people in the house across the street.' The young man looked at the house. It was dark and it looked like the people were either gone or they were already asleep. He started to open the door and then sat back in the car seat.
'Lord, this is insane. Those people are asleep and if I wake them up, they are going to be mad and I will look stupid.'
Again, he felt like he should go and give the milk. Finally, he opened the door, 'Okay God, if this is you,I will go to the door and I will give them the milk. If you want me to look like a crazy person, okay. I want to be obedient. I guess that will count for something, but if they don't answer right away, I am out of here.' He walked across the street and rang the bell. He could hear some noise inside.
A man's voice yelled out, 'Who is it? What do you want?'
Then the door opened before the young man could get away.
The man was standing there in his jeans and T-shirt. He looked like he just got out of bed. He had a strange look on his face and he didn't seem too happy to have some stranger standing on his doorstep.
'What is it?'
The young man thrust out the gallon of milk, 'Here, I brought this to you.'
The man took the milk and rushed down a hallway. Then from down the hall came a woman carrying the milk toward the kitchen.
The man was following her holding a baby. The baby was crying.
The man had tears streaming downhis face. The man began speaking and half crying, 'We were just praying. We had some big bills this month and we ran out of money. We didn't have any milk for our baby. I was just praying and asking God to show me how to get some milk.'
His wife in the kitchen yelled out, 'I ask him to send an Angel with some. Are you an Angel ?" The young man reached into his wallet and pulled out all the money he had on him and put in the man's hand. He turned and walked back toward his car and the tears were streaming down his face.
He knew that God still answers prayers.
THIS IS A SIMPLE TEST.... If you believe that God is alive and well, send this to at least ten people and the person that sent it to you!!!!!!!!
This is so true. Sometimes it's the simplest things that God asks us to do that cause us, if we are obedient to what He's asking, to be able to hear. His voice more clear than ever. Please listen, and obey! It will bless you (and the world). Phil 4:13

LOOK AT THE FLOWERS BY MARIA CASSIA




















LOOK AT THE FLOWERS


The world is full of flowers, dandelions and lilies,
Look at these flowers; they never plant or view
Shoot from the sepals and grow anew each day
Solomon's garments not as lovely as O they lay.

Roses abound in my garden, reddish and pinkish,
Plucked in the morning as the vase full of water
Offered for my Lord as the morn hasten to noon
The petals brighten as my eyes beamed attune!

Do not worry, for the birds arise to seek a living,
They never earn, nor work or strive with wings
Yet Heavenly Father provides for them array!
How much for you created in His image at bay?

The grasses, verdant green and emerald at times,
How I walked on the lush green at dawn and night
Yet the following day, they'll be gathered in barns
To be burned the next day, as smoke rise as yarns!

Do not worry, for you are precious to your Father,
The Master never forgets you in every day hour
Do not worry for even the luscious flowers thank,
Smile and walk with confidence, for God loves us!

Inspired by the Gospel

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE DESIGN BY homedesign23.com




EVOKES TRANQUILITY AND BEAUTY!

JEREMIAH 17: 7-8

Blessed are those who trust in the Lord.  They shall be like tree planted in the water, sending out its roots by the stream.  It shall not fear when heat comes, and it's leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought, it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit.  (Jer 17: 7-8)


Confidence in God brings so much fruit.  Trust in God is a symbol of awe on a great and awesome God.  It is showing reverence to His might and reliability.  It is an honest recollection of one's trust and unwavering faith.

Faith in times of sorrow and joy, faith when everything seems so helpless, when the world seems upside down.  For his motto is:  "for nothing is impossible for God."

**THE FRUITES**
POEM
BY
ARIANNA ROSE PHILIP

DELICIOUS FRUITES
SITTING IN THE BOWL
ALL DIFFERENT KINDS
STRAWBERRIES, BLUEBERRIES
EVEN PEACHES LOOK SO DELICIOUS

ALL RIPE
I TAKE ONE BY ONE
AND NOW THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF THEM
BUT A BOWL !!



(Arianna Rose Philip, the youngest brilliant poet
in New World exudes a striking, natural ambience in
her latest poem, The Fruites.
It is interesting to note that Arianna chose logical themes of
nature and everyday encounters of life. This is superb because we can connect with them perfectly.
Arianna could be envisioned to be a great poetess in her own time; she is truly a promising poet, one to reach heights in the field of literature. Outstanding young poetess! Arianna, we love your poems!)
Cynthia Abegail Bernardo


 I liked the innocence and simplicity of the contents of young Ariann's poem Fruities and other poems which you had forwarded. It seems the frame of her mind is brimming with ideas on subjects which she observes around her. It is also evident that she minutely observe things. A bowel full of fruits and an empty bowel without them ! A common thing of everyday life has been depicted meaningfully and beautifully, I send my best wishes and congratulations to Arianna.

MISSION ON EARTH-A SHORT STORY BY GEORGE KURIAN, RIP

MISSION ON EARTH-A SHORT STORY
(This short Story is being republished as we feel that is good for the present time) New World
It was a few moments after midnight, when a bright light in the shape of a white cloud dashed through the middle of the sky. Most of the people on Earth were sleeping except some stargazers and wanderers. Some thought it was a shooting Star, while others thought it was a UFO. The light circled around the Earth and out of it came the face of an angel.
Looking at the heaven, the angel cried out,"Oh! my Father Almighty. I cannot endure the sight on earth anymore. The bloodshed in the name of God and religion is unbearable.
Tears rolled down on his innocent face.
GOD replied, My dear angel,if you connot bear it, how much can I endure ?
After all, I have created the heaven and earth and later the man, who destroys one another with no respect and knowledge of the value of one's life.
"Father,may I do something to save them ?" The angel asked.
"Yes,my angel,make it a mission on earth to save man from destruction. Now fly West. There you will find a boy under a tree on the bank of Hudson River,in New York, USA not far from the site of 9/11.You will see him holding the "GREAT BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE". Read along with the boy and follow its contents."
"Yes my Father." angel replied.
The angel flew West and found the boy on the bank of Hudson River who appeared to be homeless.
" I am ready to read the" GREAT BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE",my dear child. What is your name ?" The angel asked.
"People call me different names. You are an angel, right ?"The boy asked
"Yes how did you know that ?" The angel was surprised.
"Because, I possess the "GREAT BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE". Now let us read the book"
The boy opened up the first page. It was empty and void!
The angel wondered why it was so.
The boy smiled and replied,"In the beginning,everything was empty and void.Right?"
"Right. As it is in the book of Genesis."
The next page was about a scientific theory namely 'THE BIG BANG.'
The boy said, "The scientists are unable to answer the question,what went'BANG' and where it came from. Man did not appear on earth by random chance but by the creation of GOD.
The next page was about the self-glorification of man.
The boy told, "Whatever man tries to achieve at the expense of his fellow man for power and self-glorification is unethical and immoral. That is a real Sin.His act will not last very long.Do you remember the story of Alexander The Great?
After conquering the whole World,Alexander fell ill. Prior to his death, he instructed his servants to put his empty hands outside the coffin to declare the whole world that even though Alexander won the whole world, he could not take anything with him, when he left his abode.
"A great lesson for mankind.!" The angel said.
The next page opened up.
" Man cannot see GOD but can feel HIS presence at every moment.To love one another is not a theme of the past but a maxim for the present and the future. After all, GOD loves man and forgives his sins."
At this instance, the angel recognizing who really the boy is, bent down before HIM and said,"OH! my FATHER! You are are always Great. Kindly guide me to help man to open his eyes to make this world a peaceful and loving one for all.
"Start your mission, angel. Let man not hide or pretend. Let him stop fighting on the very floor of his worship. He should open up his heart and love one another and make everyone's life meaningful. Let us hope that this is the dawn of a new beginning in the life of man. If he is sincere, he can bring heaven to earth, otherwise he will bring hell.
