A Tribute To Mother Theresa - I Remember

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered...
Forgive them anyway

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives...
Be kind anyway

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies...
Succeed anyway

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you...
Be honest and frank anyway

What you may spend years building, someone may destroy overnight...
Build anyway

If you find serenity and happiness, people may be jealous...
Be happy anyway

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow...
Do good anyway

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough...
Give the world the best you have anyway

You see, in the final analysis, it's all between you and God...
it was never between you and them anyway

By Mother Theresa

A natural wonder

No matter which part of the increasingly small globe we live in, we could have seen storm clouds gathering, announcing the expected and proclaiming a great beauty of a rhetorical question. The efficacy of the players involved in this dramatic scene is astonishing and awe-inspiring. Wind, Clouds, Lightning and Thunder work with such frenetic speed and synchronised synergy. At the time that is most unexpected, infinite droplets of rain- offer all their entire beings to earn a standing ovation from everyone who live in parched-dry lands.

The picture you see here is just one awesome example. It was taken just 5 minutes before one of the heaviest downpour in recent months. On that morning, the lightning speed in which this dramatic display took place was nothing short of breath-taking.

The colours of the sky changed and darkened so fast that one would have not imagined that normally, some shafts of sunrays would have pierced the sleepy sky.
Within seconds, i grabbed my digital camera and took some shots of this natural awesome wonder.

Well, the early shutterbird catches the pics.

Standing on a buoy in sea off southern island

The vastness, frightening but alluring
beckoned me - with lights and colour
Gently rocking, timed waving
upon the Southern green.

Living ~ Learning ~ Life

Sip, Suck, Savour
Think,Tinker, Triple

Jewels On My Crown

The promise promised;
Our joy fulfilled
and while praising You
the second delivered

"What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived—
these things God has prepared for those who love him"

1 Corinthians 2:9-12 (Today's New International Version)

9 如 经 上 所 记 : 神 为 爱 他 的 人 所 预 备 的 是 眼 睛 未 曾 看 见 , 耳 朵 未 曾 听 见 , 人 心 也 未 曾 想 到 的 。

10 只 有 神 藉 着 圣 灵 向 我 们 显 明 了 , 因 为 圣 灵 参 透 万 事 , 就 是 神 深 奥 的 事 也 参 透 了 。

11 除 了 在 人 里 头 的 灵 , 谁 知 道 人 的 事 ; 像 这 样 , 除 了 神 的 灵 , 也 没 有 人 知 道 神 的 事 。

12 我 们 所 领 受 的 , 并 不 是 世 上 的 灵 , 乃 是 从 神 来 的 灵 , 叫 我 们 能 知 道 神 开 恩 赐 给 我 们 的 事 。

歌 林 多 前 書 2:9-12 (Chinese Union Version (Simplified))
