Man & Woman

Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders.
It is seen in the width of his arms that encircle you.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice.
It is in the gentle words he whispers.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how many buddies he has.
It is in how good a buddy he is with his kids.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work.
It is in how respected he is at home.

 

The strength of a man isn't in how many women he's loved by.
It is in how true he can be to one woman.

 

The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift.
It is in the burdens he can shoulder, understand and overcome.


Beauty of a Woman

The beauty of a woman
Is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries,
Or the way she combs her hair.


The beauty of a woman
Must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.


The beauty of a woman
Is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman
Is reflected in her soul.


It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows,
The beauty of a woman
With passing years-only grows.



Lucky is the man who is the first love of a woman,
but luckier is the woman who is the last love of a man.

God's Secrets


A new priest was walking in the garden one day with an older, more seasoned priest. Feeling a bit insecure about what God had for him to do, he was asking the older priest for some advice.
 
The older priest walked up to a rose bush and handed the younger priest a rosebud and told him to open it without tearing any petals.

The younger priest looked in disbelief at the older priest and was trying to figure out what a rosebud could possibly have to do with his wanting to know the will of God for his life and ministry, but because of his great respect for the older priest he proceeded to try to unfold the rose, while keeping every petal intact.

It wasn't long before he realized how impossible this is to do.

Noticing the younger priest's inability to unfold the rosebud without tearing it, the older priest began to recite the following poem:

It is only a tiny rosebud - a flower of God's design;
but I cannot unfold the petals with these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so easily, but in my hands, they die.
If I can't unfold a rosebud - this flower of God's design,
then how can I have the wisdom to unfold this life of mine?
So I'll trust in God for leading each moment of my day;
I will look to God for guidance in each step along the way.
The path that lies before me, only my Lord knows.
I trust God to unfold the moments, just as HE unfolds the rose.

Remember, that sometimes we do need to let go and let God unfold our lives.

Please Teach Him


This letter was written by Abraham Lincoln to the Teacher of his son. We, the parent's of today definitely need to take a cue from that.

***********

Respected Teacher,

My son will have to learn. I know that all men are not just, all men are not true, but teach him also that for every scoundrel there is a hero; that for every selfish politician, there is a dedicated leader. Teach him that for every enemy there is a friend.

It will take time, I know; but teach him, if you can, that a dollar earned is far more valuable than five found. Teach him to learn to lose and also to enjoy winning.

Steer him away from envy, if you can.

Teach him the secret of quite laughter. Let him learn early that the bullies are the easiest to tick.

Teach him, if you can, the wonder of books, but also give him quiet time to ponder over the eternal mystery of birds in the sky, bees in the sun, and flowers on a green hill side.

In school teach him it is far more honourable to fail than to cheat.

Teach him to have faith in his own ideas, even if everyone tells him they are wrong.

Teach him to be gentle with gentle people and tough with the tough.

Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone is getting on the bandwagon.

Teach him to listen to all men but teach him also to filter all he hears on a screen of truth and take only the good that comes through.

Teach him, if you can, how to laugh when he is sad. Teach him there is no shame in tears. Teach him to scoff at cynics and to beware of too much sweetness.

Teach him to sell his brawn and brain to the highest bidders; but never to put a price tag on his heart and soul.

Teach him to close his ears to a howling mob and to stand and fight if he thinks he's right.

Treat him gently; but do not cuddle him because only the test of fire makes fine steel.

Let him have the courage to be impatient, let him have the patience to be brave.

Teach him always to have sublime faith in himself because then he will always have sublime faith in mankind.

This is a big order; but see what you can do. He is such a fine little fellow, my son.

One Minute Meditation

Such a nice method and so simply explained through the video. Must adopt.

There once was a farmer who discovered that he had lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.

After searching high and low among the hay for a long while; he gave up and enlisted the help of a group of children playing outside the barn.

He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.

Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn, went through and around the entire stack of hay but still could not find the watch. Just when the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance.

The farmer looked at him and thought, "Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough."

So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised and so he asked the boy how he succeeded where the rest had failed.

The boy replied, "I did nothing but sit on the ground and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction."

Moral: A peaceful mind can think better than a worked up mind. Allow a few minutes of silence to your mind every day, and see, how sharply it helps you to set your life the way you expect it to be...!

The Wolves Within


An old Grandfather, whose grandson came to him with anger at a schoolmate who had done him an injustice, said, "Let me tell you a story."

"I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those that have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times."

He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way."

"But the other wolf, ah! he is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his Grandfather's eye and asked, "Which one wins, Grandfather?"

The Grandfather solemnly said, "The one I feed."
