    it is thought provoking..at least for me it is.. I love the facebook status updates this guy adds..

    one day I remember scurrying around to write down wat he said to put up on my wall …lol

    some silly, some romantic, some bizarre, some craze…

    anyways.. my thoughts.. are eerily scatter(ish) and on the nostalgic side Sad

    God's Letter to a Woman

    (This is a must read!!!!)






















    When I created the heavens and the earth, I spoke them into being.

    When I created man, I formed him and breathed life into his nostrils.

    But you, woman, I fashioned after I breathed the breath of life into man, because your nostrils are too delicate.







    I allowed a deep sleep to come over him 

    so I could patiently and perfectly fashion you. 

    Man was put to sleep so that he could not interfere with the creativity. 

    From one bone, I fashioned you. 

    I chose the bone that protects man's life. 

    I chose the rib, which protects his heart and lungs and supports him, 

    as you are meant to do.

     







    Around this one bone, I shaped you....... I modeled you.

    I created you perfectly and beautifully. 

    Your characteristics a

    2 . Expecting the world to treat u fairly coz u r a good person is like expecting the lion not to attack u coz u r a vegetarian . Think about it .
    image002.gifimage003.gif
    3 . Beauty isn't measured by outer appearance and what clothes we wear,but what we are inside. So, try going out naked tomorrow and see the Admiration!

    image002.gifimage003.gif
    4 . Don't walk as if you rule the world, walk as if you don't care who rules the world!
    That's called Attitude . Keep on rocking!

    image002.gifimage003.gif
    5 . Every lady hopes that her daughter will marry a better man than she did and is convinced that her son will never find a wife as good as his father did!!!

    image002.gifimage003.gif
    6 . He was a good man . He never smoked, drank had no affair . When he died,the insurance company refused the claim . They said, he who never lived, cannot die!

    7 . A man threw his wife in a pond of Crocodiles . He's now being harassed by the Animal Rights Activists for being cruel to the Crocodiles!

    IF TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME

    A few weeks ago a woman was killed in an auto
    Accident. She was very well liked, so the office shut
    Down for her funeral and it was on the news and so on.
    On the day the workers came back to work, they found
    This poem in their e-mail that the deceased woman had
    Sent on Friday before she left for home.

    If tomorrow starts without me,
    And I'm not there to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    All filled with tears for me;

    I wish so much you wouldn't cry
    The way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things,
    We didn't get to say.

    I know how much you love me,
    As much as I love you,
    And each time that you think of me,
    I know you'll miss me too;

    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand,

    And said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above,
    And that I'd have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.

    But as I turned to walk away,
    A tear fell from my eye,
    For all my life, I'd always thought,
    I didn't want to die.

    I had so much to live for,
    So much left yet to do,
    It seemed almost impossible,
    That I was leaving you.
    I thought of all the yesterdays,
    The good ones and the bad,
    I thought of all that we shared,
    And all the fun we had.

    If I could relive yesterday,
    Just even for a while,
    I'd say good-bye and kiss you
    And maybe see you smile.

    But then I fully realized,
    That this could never be,
    For emptiness and memories,
    Would take the place of me.

    And when I thought of worldly things,
    I might miss some tomorrow,
    I thought of you, and when I did,
    My heart was filled with sorrow.

    But when I walked through heaven's gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    >From His great golden throne,

    He said, “This is eternity,
    And all I've promised you.”
    Today your life on earth is past,
    But here life starts anew.

    I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day is the same way,
    There's no longing for the past.

    So when tomorrow starts without me,
    Don't think we're far apart,
    For every time you think of me,
    I'm right here, in your heart “

    NEED WASHING??

    A little girl had been shopping with her Mom in Target. She must have
    been 6 years old, this beautiful red haired, freckle faced image of
    innocence. It was pouring outside. The kind of rain that gushes over the
    top of rain gutters, so much in a hurry to hit the earth it has no time
    to flow down the spout. We all stood there under the awning and just
    inside the door of the Target.

    We waited, some patiently, others irritated because nature messed up
    their hurried day. I am always mesmerized by rainfall. I got lost in
    the sound and sight of the heavens washing away the dirt and dust of the
    world. Memories of running, splashing so carefree as a child came
    pouring in as a welcome reprieve from the worries of my day.

    The little voice was so sweet as it broke the hypnotic trance we were
    all caught in 'Mom let's run through the rain,' she said.

    'What?' Mom asked.

    'Lets run through the rain!' She repeated

    'No, honey. We'll wait until it slows down a bit,' Mom replied.

    This young child waited about another minute and repeated: 'Mom, let's
    run through the rain,'

    'We'll get soaked if we do,' Mom said.

    'No, we won't, Mom.. That's not what you said this morning,' the young
    girl said as she tugged at her Mom's arm.

    This morning? When did I say we could run through the rain and not get
    wet?

    'Don't you remember? When you were talking to Daddy about his cancer,
    you said, 'If God can get us through this, he can get us through
    anything!'

    The entire crowd stopped dead silent. I swear you couldn't hear
    anything but the rain. We all stood silently. No one came or left in
    the next few minutes.

    Mom paused and thought for a moment about what she would say. Now some
    would laugh it off and scold her for being silly. Some might even
    ignore what was said. But this was a moment of affirmation in a young
    child's life. A time when innocent trust can be nurtured so that it
    will bloom into faith.

    'Honey, you are absolutely right. Let's run through the rain. If GOD
    let's us get wet, well maybe we just needed washing,' Mom said.

    Then off they ran. We all stood watching, smiling and laughing as they
    darted past the cars and yes, through the puddles. They held their
    shopping bags over their heads just in case. They got soaked. But they
    were followed by a few who screamed and laughed like children all the
    way to their cars.

    And yes, I did. I ran. I got wet. I needed washing.

    Circumstances or people can take away your material possessions, they
    can take away your money, and they can take away your health. But no
    one can ever take away your precious memories…..So, don't forget to
    make time and take the opportunities to make memories everyday.

    To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under
    heaven.

    I HOPE YOU STILL TAKE THE TIME TO RUN THROUGH THE RAIN.

    They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to
    appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget
    them.

    Take the time to live!!!

    don't forget to run in the rain!

    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well.
    The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
    Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.


    He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.
    They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
    At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.
    Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

    A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well.
    He was astonished at what he saw.
    With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
    He would shake it off and take a step up.


    As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.
    Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

    MORAL

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.
    The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.
    Each of our troubles is a steppingstone.
    We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up!
    Shake it off and take a step up.



    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

    1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.

    2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happens.

    3. Live simply and appreciate what you have.

    4. Give more.

    5. Expect less from people but more from God.

    This one always comforts me Alie. I find the best way to keep someone with us at all times is to keep them in our very existence. The little things. The little actions or thoughts or words that are shared only between you and that person – no matter where they are. Keep their dignity shining in the way you live.

    For you, a couple of quotes. The first one I have found comforting many, many a time. And I will always look back on it for comfort. The second one is a recent discovery, and it struck an immediate chord with me. Especially in thinking about this forum.


    Once again I felt myself frozen by the sense of something irreparable. And I knew that I could not bear the thought of never hearing that laughter any more. For me, it was like a spring of fresh water in the desert.

    “Little man,” I said, “I want to hear you laugh again.”

    But he said to me:

    “Tonight, it will be a year . . . My star, then, can be found right above the place where I came to the Earth, a year ago . . .”

    “Little man,” I said, “tell me that it is only a bad dream–this affair of the snake, and the meeting-place, and the star . . .”

    But he did not answer my plea. He said to me, instead:

    “The thing that is important is the thing that is not seen . . .”

    “Yes, I know . . .”

    “It is just as it is with the flower. If you love a flower that lives on a star, it is sweet to look at the sky at night. All the stars are a-bloom with flowers . . .”

    “Yes, I know . . .”

    “It is just as it is with the water. Because of the pulley, and the rope, what you gave me to drink was like music. You remember–how good it was.”

    “Yes, I know . . .”

    “And at night you will look up at the stars. Where I live everything is so small that I cannot show you where my star is to be found. It is better, like that. My star will just be one of the stars, for you. And so you will love to watch all the stars in the heavens . . . they will all be your friends. And, besides, I am going to make you a present . . .”

    He laughed again.

    “Ah, little prince, dear little prince! I love to hear that laughter!”

    “That is my present. Just that. It will be as it was when we drank the water . . .”

    “What are you trying to say?”

    “All men have the stars,” he answered, “but they are not the same things for different people. For some, who are travelers, the stars are guides. For others they are no more than little lights in the sky. For others, who are scholars, they are problems. For my businessman they were wealth. But all these stars are silent. You–you alone–will have the stars as no one else has them–”

    “What are you trying to say?”

    “In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night . . . You–only you–will have stars that can laugh!”

    And he laughed again.

    “And when your sorrow is comforted (time soothes all sorrows) you will be content that you have known me. You will always be my friend. You will want to laugh with me. And you will sometimes open your window, so, for that pleasure . . . And your friends will be properly astonished to see you laughing as you look up at the sky! Then you will say to them, ‘Yes, the stars always make me laugh!’ And they will think you are crazy. It will be a very shabby trick that I shall have played on you . . .”

    And he laughed again.

    “It will be as if, in place of the stars, I had given you a great number of little bells that knew how to laugh . . .”

    And he laughed again.
    – The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery. God, it is so painful to just read that… but it is true and so beautiful.

    I pulled a bottle of whisky from my pack and cracked the seal. It was another ritual, another promise to a friend in New Zealand, a girl who’d asked me to have a drink and think of her if I managed to smuggle myself safely into India with my false passport. The little rituals – the smoke and the drink of whisky – were important to me. I was sure that I’d lost those friends, just as I’d lost my family, and every friend I’d ever known, when I’d escaped from prison. I was sure, somehow, that I would never see them again. I was alone in the world, with no hope of return, and my whole life was held in memories, talismans, and pledges of love.
    – can you guess this one :) Shantaram, Gregory David Roberts. The moment I read this, I felt a strange connection to it. I guess that’s when I first knew I was going to love this book. But anyway, yes, I think you will appreciate the quote. :)

    boo**smiles**…scratch that, Grins
    this is like the 2nd time am responding to this post, for some reason, the forum isnt posting my posts…arrghhh

    I read your reply around 4.am on sunday morn..thats because I just couldnt sleep
    I mentioned to you in my first reply

    its strange that u mention a quote in relation to stars, as thats what I had been doing, watching this star, it looked bigger, brighter, and seem to have a twinkle, I kept thinking, well hoping its ….
    for me I just want to SEEE.. i need that, I need some way of knowing she is ok..
    And at night you will look up at the stars. Where I live everything is so small that I cannot show you where my star is to be found. It is better, like that. My star will just be one of the stars, for you. And so you will love to watch all the stars in the heavens . . . they will all be your friends. And, besides, I am going to make you a present . . .”

    breaks my heart…

    Once again I felt myself frozen by the sense of something irreparable. And I knew that I could not bear the thought of never hearing that laughter any more.

    Its a beautiful .. ok before i start dissecting the words to show u how much it means to me to read this..will stop
    and did i say thank u?? coz am not sure why but this helps a lil…

    I read the first sentence and instantly knew it was his words:) :)
    the little things… are important.. I need to get a copy for myself and re-read this book, it brings more memories to me.. and yes I sure do appreciate it.. I remember writing a few of his words, quoting him and then saving it for future use:) ..then I thought, dammit if I dont stop now, will end up typing the entire /or almost, book off:)
