The first ever cordless phone was created by God. He named it “Prayer” it never loses it’s signal and you never need to recharge it.


OPINIONS 
On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents.' 


Life is too short to worry about what others say or think about you. Have fun and give them something to talk about!


Those that go searching for love only make manifest their own lovelessness and the loveless never find love.

Only the loving find love and they never have to seek it.


 

  1. Once all villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all the people gathered, but only one came with an umbrella. That's FAITH
  2. When you throw a baby in the air, she laughs because she knows you will catch her. That's TRUST
  3. Every night we go to bed, without any assurance of being alive the next morning but still we set the alarms to wake up. That's HOPE
  4. We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future.  That's CONFIDENCE
  5. We see the world suffering, but still we get married and have children.  That's LOVE
  6. On an old man's shirt was written a sentence 'I am not 66 years old.... I am sweet 16 with 50 years experience' That's ATTITUDE

With my eyes, Lord, I can see
All the love you have for me.
Help me spread your love to others,
Friends and parents, sisters, brothers
Till the world is full of love.

Meant for parents to pray with their
children but it seems good enough for anyone.

 


Having somewhere to go is HOME
Having someone to love is FAMILY
Having both is a BLESSING


Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you


The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in a queue for. (Mostly because we forgot why we were waiting in a queue in the first place!!)


Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can
In all the ways you can,
in all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
to all the people you can
As long as ever you can

John Wesley    


 Prayer is not a "spare wheel" that you pull out when in trouble, but it is a "steering wheel" that directs the right path throughout life.
Why is a car's windshield so large and the rear view mirror is so small? Because our PAST is not as important as our FUTURE. So, look ahead and move on.
 Friendship is like a book. It takes few seconds to burn, but it takes years to write.
All things in life are temporary. If going well, enjoy it, they will not last forever. If going wrong, don't worry, they can't last long either.
Old Friends are Gold! New Friends are Diamond! If you get a  Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you always need a Base of Gold!
Often when we lose hope and think this is the end, GOD smiles from above and says, "Relax, sweetheart, it's just a bend, not the end!
When GOD solves your problems, you have faith in HIS abilities; when GOD doesn't solve your problems HE has faith in your abilities.
When you pray for others, God listens to you and blesses them, and sometimes, when you are safe and happy, remember that someone has prayed for you.
WORRYING does not take away tomorrow's TROUBLES; it takes away today's PEACE
