THE MOST IMPORTANT BODY PART!!! July 3, 2012

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 7:04 am

My mother used to ask me what is the most important part of the body and through the years I would take a guess at what I thought was the correct answer. When I was younger I thought sound was very important to us as humans so I said my ears mommy. She said “No, many people are deaf. But you keep thinking about it and I will ask you again soon.”

Several years passed before she asked me again. Since my last attempt I contemplated a correct answer. So I told her “Mommy, sight is very important to everybody, so it must be our eyes.” She looked at me and told me that I was learning fast but the answer is not correct because there are many people who are blind.

Stumped again I continued my quest for knowledge and over the years she asked me a couple more times and always the same answer “No. But you are getting smarter every year my young child.”

Then last year my Grandpa died. Everybody was hurt. Everybody was crying. Even my father cried. I remember that especially because it is only the second time I saw him cry. My Mom looked at me when it was our turn to say
our final good-bye to Grandpa. She asked me “Do you know the most important body part yet my son?” And I was shocked she asked me this now. I always thought this was a game between her and me. She saw the confusion on my face and told me “This question is very important. It shows that you have really lived in your life. For every body part you gave me in the past I have told you that it was wrong and given you an example why. But today is the day you need to learn this important lesson.”

She looked down at me like only a mother can. I saw her eyes well up with tears. She said, “Son the most important body part is your shoulder.” Was it because it held up my head? She replied, “No, because it can hold the head of a friend or loved one when they cry. Everybody needs a shoulder to cry on sometime in life my son. I only hope that you have enough love and friends that you will always have a shoulder to cry on when you need it.” Then and there I knew the most important body part was not selfish, it was sympathetic to the pain of OTHERS.

You are a friend and whenever you want you can cry on my shoulder!!!

HE IS THE GREAT I AM! :)

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 8:30 pm

He is the First and Last, the Beginning and the End!
He is the keeper of Creation and the Creator of all!
He is the Architect of the universe and the Manager of all times.
He always was, He always is, and He always will be…
Unmoved, Unchanged, Undefeated, and never Undone!

He was bruised and brought healing!
He was pierced and eased pain!
He was persecuted and brought freedom!
He was dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power!
He reigns and brings Peace!

The world can’t understand him,
The armies can’t defeat Him,
The schools can’t explain Him,
and The leaders can’t ignore Him.

Herod couldn’t kill Him,
The Pharisees couldn’t confuse Him,
and The people couldn’t hold Him!

Nero couldn’t crush Him,
Hitler couldn’t silence Him,
The New Age can’t replace Him,
and Donahue can’t explain Him away!

He is light, love, longevity, and Lord.
He is goodness, Kindness, Gentleness, and God.

He is Holy, Righteous, mighty, powerful, and pure.
His ways are right, His word is eternal,
His will is unchanging, and His mind is on me.

He is my Redeemer, He is my Savior,
He is my guide, and He is my peace!
He is my Joy, He is my comfort,
He is my Lord, and He rules my life!

I serve Him because His bond is love,
His burden is light, and His goal for me is abundant life.
I follow Him because He is the wisdom of the wise,
the power of the powerful, the ancient of days,
the ruler of rulers, the leader of leaders,
the overseer of the overcomers, and the sovereign Lord
of all that was and is and is to come.

And if that seems impressive to you, try this for size.
His goal is a relationship with ME!
He will never leave me, never forsake me,
Never mislead me, never forget me, never overlook me,
and never cancel my appointment in His appointment book!

When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives!
When I am weak, He is strong!
When I am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is my courage!
When I stumble, He steadies me!
When I am hurt, He heals me!
When I am broken, He mends me!
When I am blind, He leads me!
When I am hungry, He feeds me!
When I face trials, He is with me!
When I face persecution, He shields me!
When I face problems, He comforts me!
When I face loss, He provides for me!
When I’ll  face Death, He will carry me Home!

He is everything for everybody, everywhere,every time, and every way.

He is God,
He is faithful.
I am His, and He is mine!

My Father in heaven can whip the father
of this world. So, if you’re wondering why I
feel so secure, understand this…

He said it and that settles it.
God is in control,
I am on His side, and that means all is well with my soul.

Everyday is a blessing for GOD Is!

THE TEACUP !

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 8:18 pm

There was a couple who used to go to England to shop in the beautiful stores. They both liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups. This was their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary.

One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. They said, “May we see that? We’ve never seen one quiet so beautiful.” As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke, “You don’t understand,” it said, “I haven’t always been a teacup.”

“There was a time when I was red and I was clay. My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over and I yelled out, ‘Let me alone,’ but he only smiled, ‘Not yet.’

“Then I was placed on a spinning wheel,” the teacup said, “and suddenly I was spun around and around and around. ‘Stop it! I’m getting dizzy!’ I screamed. But the master only nodded and said, ‘Not yet.’

“Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat. I wondered why he wanted to burn me, and I yelled and knocked at the door. I could see him through the opening and I could read his lips, as he shook his head, ‘Not yet!’

“Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool. ‘There that’s better,’ I said. And he brushed and painted me all over. The fumes were horrible; I thought I would gag. ‘Stop it, stop it!’ I cried. He only nodded, ‘Not yet.’

“Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate. I begged. I pleaded, I screamed. I cried. All the time I could see him through the opening nodding his head saying, ‘Not yet!’

“Then I knew there wasn’t any hope. I would never make it. I was ready to give up. But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf.

One hour later he handed me a mirror and said, ‘Look at yourself.’ And I did. I said, ‘That’s not me; that couldn’t be me. It’s beautiful. I’m beautiful.’

“‘I want you to remember, then,’ he said, ‘I know it hurts to be rolled and patted, but if I had left you alone, you’d have dried up. I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel, but if I had stopped, you would have crumbled. I knew it was hot and disagreeable in the oven, but if I hadn’t put you there, you would have cracked.

“‘I know the fumes were bad when I brushed and painted you all over, but if I hadn’t done that, you never would have hardened; you would not have had any color in your life. And if I hadn’t put you back in the second oven, you wouldn’t survive for very long because the hardness would not have held. “‘Now you are a finished product. You are what I had in mind when I first began you.’”

Jeremiah 18:6 “O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does?” declares the LORD. “Like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.”

STARFISH !!!

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 8:12 pm

Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing.   He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. One day he was walking along the shore.  As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer.  He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day.  So he began to walk faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn’t dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean.

As he got closer he called out, “Good morning! What are you doing?”

The young man paused, looked up and replied, “Throwing starfish in the ocean.”

“I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?”

“The sun is up, and the tide is going out, and if I don’t throw them in they’ll die.”

“But, young man, don’t you realize that there are miles and miles of beach,and starfish all along it.  You can’t possibly make a difference!”

The young man listened politely.  Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said, “It made a difference for that one.”

When You Thought I Wasn’t Looking, By a Child!!!

Filed under: Sharing Blogs !!! — Trupti Shah @ 8:08 pm

A message every parent should read, because your children are watching and
doing as you do, not as you say.

“When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you hang my first painting on the
refrigerator, and I immediately wanted to paint another one.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you feed a stray cat, and I learned
that it was good to be kind to animals.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you make my favorite cake for me
and I learned that little things can be the special things in life.

When you though I wasn’t looking, I heard you say a prayer, and I knew there
is a God I could always talk to and I learned to trust in God.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you make a meal and take it to a
friend who was sick, and I learned that we all have to help take care of
each other.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw you give of your time and money to
help people who had nothing and I learned that those who have something
should give to those who don’t.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I felt you kiss me good night and I felt
loved and safe.

When you though I wasn’t looking, I saw you take care of our house and
everyone in it and I learned we have to take care of what we are given.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw how you handled your
responsibilities, even when you didn’t feel good and I learned that I would
have to be responsible when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw tears come from your eyes and I
learned that sometimes things hurt, but its all right to cry.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I saw that you cared and I wanted to be
everything that I could be.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I learned most of life’s lessons that I
need to know to be good and productive person when I grow up.

When you thought I wasn’t looking, I looked at you and wanted to say,
‘Thanks for all the things I saw when you thought I wasn’t looking.’”

Each of us – parent, grandparent or friend – influence the life of a child.
