Be An Encourager

dearest darlings, sweetypies, munchkins my cho cho chweet darlings how have you been ? Well I have been doing well and supporting my husband in his  teaching in our church. When we said our marriage vows it is for better for worse for richer or poorer, in sickness and I  health till death do us part.

We are of different cultures and colours but one thing remains we said our vows in church in front of God and family and friends and  we both took our vows seriously. We have had our ups and downs but our marriage has been like the Ocean sometimes there are heavy winds and storms but the ocean remains steadfast so is our marriage while God is our light house bringing light to our storms and winds.

We both have a steady hand guiding us and that hand is our Almighty God. Today as I sat at the bible study that my husband takes at our church I thought what more can I do that will make me a better wife to my husband and I clearly felt “ Support Him” He has been with me about seven years while he was working in IT as a computer Engineer while we were dating now he is serving God and is studying to be a pastor.

My dad is an Anglican Minister and I admired his preaching and teaching and here am I so many years later admiring my husband’s teaching and supporting him. When I was younger God gave me a verse which said “ me and my house will serve the Lord “ Now that verse is being fulfilled.

Dear friends what God promises he provides and guides. You may be dreaming of a life partner hold on to God and he will provide. You may be asking God to open doors in business or in ministry, dear friends if God has promised you this he will open that door it took 6 years for my husband to go into ministry but at the right time God opened the door.

Wait on God, read the word and just speak to God and watch God fulfil that plan for your life. As for me I am overflowing with gratitude and thankfulness to God for giving me the joy and privilege in hearing my husband conduct that Bible study and all I want to be is a supportive wife sans nagging and a wonderful mother to my gorgeous two year old daughter if I can accomplish this I would have fulfilled my role on earth as a wife and mother at this time for my family.

Today all I can say is I am grateful and content with my role on this earth

The History Of Anicent India

Hi there dear cho cho chweet darlings, how are you  dear honey buns ? Well I the Indian aunty have been reading about my language Tamil. The Indus valley civilization which is also called the Harappan civilazation and which is Mohanjodaro now  in Pakistan. Is an ancient civilization these people were most probably Dravidians the original inhabitants of India. Such as the red Indians of America and the aborigines  of Australia.

The Indus valley people can be dated to 2000 BC. These people loved art and architecture and dance as we can see the figurine of the dancing girl made of metal. The homes in this civilization had drainage and sewage systems and they built highly sophisticated housing for such an early time of history. They also had a great bath which can noted as the modern day spa.

I believe this civilization is as remarkable as the Egyptian civilization. These ancient people also did agriculture. Somehow all they left for us to remember them by was their remarkable housing.

What happened to these remarkable sophisticated people they suddenly vanished from the Indus valley if you are an sci fi fan you can say alien ship took them away. Or there must have been a tidal wave or volcano that killed these people or most probably what most historians believe these people were driven to southern India by the Aryans most probably Tamil Nadu where they settled down. The  Aryans then were the first  set of people who came to India and they brought with them the rig veda  the original script  which is the basis of Hinduism.

But what baffle’s me  is what happened to these people of the Indus valley I believe they intermarried with the Aryans and that is why the Brahmins most of them are very light skinned and highly intelligent a product of inter- breeding and some of them even have green eyes a product of Arayan ancestry

Then came the other cultures to India the Middle Eastern, the Syrians to Kerala, and ofcourse the British all these cultures make beautiful cosmopolitan India. Someone said if you see the colours of the people in India it is like looking at the rainbow from the beautiful dusky complexioned to the gorgeous milky complexioned with green eyes we are all Indian.

So my dear cho cho cweet honey buns that is the end of my history lesson for today.So Nandre or thank you for checking out my blog

Good bye from the Indian history teacher aunty

Money, Karma and Women

My dearest sweet munchkins how are you? How are you darlings ? Well today I am going to write to the women with some girlie banter I do not want any of you get offended with my girlie banter but here it goes ………

One day a pastor went to shop for a bra for his wife so he went into this Christian bra store and the lady said sir “ we have a catholic bra that holds the masses, the brethren bra that uplifts the fallen and above all we have the Pentecostal bra that makes mountains out of molehills “ So the pastor said give me the Pentecostal bra for my wife and went away smiling………

Dear friends, sometimes  life is like a bra  you can stretch your personality ,savings, friendships, your spouse to the limit but at the end it bounces back to its originality and to your real self.

Lets talk about money for a change we save, we earn, we spend, we learn. Money can be stretched to the limit but it always bounces back till we get our next pay check. Money should be respected and people with money are respected it is not the most important thing in the world but lets face the facts it is very important.

I do not like talking about money and did not know its importance but I learnt from my family that we should give into our church and God’s ministers. By giving we are being blessed. When we give money call it blessing, karma or fate the blessings come back at us.

I remember when I was working in Microsoft in India I gave into my church, an orphanage and to God’s minter and the next months I got better salary because I believe I pleased God by giving.

I do not think you have to give all your money away but keep one tenth of your money for God. It can also go into a worthy cause like an orphanage or needy relative. God will bless you for that. Learn to give and learn to receive.

I had a problem of learning to receive money as I thought there were more needy people than me but I am still learning to receive things except flowers and  dark chocolates which I love but there are people who must learn to be gracious enough in learning to receive and learning to give they both go hand in hand.

If you feel you can not give money give your time just learn to love people some people have gone through hard times and it makes their heart hard but one day tell God why you are angry  forgive that person and ask Jesus to fill your heart with love for other people and he will fill your heart with love.

By giving a hug to the elderly, or cooking something for a friend or sending money for a worthy project will do wonders for your finance and life and what goes around comes around give out love and what ever you feel you can do or give and watch God bless you.

So from the Christian finance inspector

Words, Relationships and Tango

Hi there dearest darlings, how have you been? Let me start with a story “ Once there was a man who wanted to buy a horse  let us call this man “A “so he went to all the places they were selling horses but he could not find a horse. Till he met this brethren man who was selling his horse, so before he let “A” try his horse he said this is a Christian horse brother “A” if you say “Praise the Lord the horse will gallop, if you say Hallelujah the horse will run very fast and when you say Amen the horse will stop” So A was very excited and he said to the horse Praise the Lord , “A” was very excited and shouted Hallelujah the horse started galloping very fast till “A” saw the horse was going towards the edge of a cliff. “A” got scared and shouted stop, stop , but the horse went on galloping till “A” shouted in fright GOD save me “AMEN” the horse heard the AMEN and stopped at the very edge of the cliff in his relief  “A” shouted Praise The Lord and…..went over the cliff :(.

Praise the Lord it is not a true story but what I would like to say to all my readers gourd your mouths even when you are upset. Take a deep breath count to 10 and let out the steam. By then the pressure cooker of the anger will be a bit more mellow. I had this problem of telling my whole life history to people who I just met sometimes that was a good thing if done with people from church or people who care about you but at other times it can be used against you.

So discretion should be part of your lifestyle. Women have more intuition than men but men are more practical. So men it is wise to listen to your wives for advice and women do not nag your men but in clear ways explain to them why you think they should do as you say.

The relationship with your words between you and your spouse is like the dance of tango at times it is emotional and beautiful at other times you feel like chewing the steam of the rose between your teeth at other times it is a beautiful symphony. Darlings that is relationship and words in this relationship is vital.

There were once three janitors working in a building one janitor kept saying one day I will own this company and did not do his job as he kept talking, another janitor said I hate my job I should be some where else and kept telling everyone how much he hated his job and wanted to quit but one janitor did not say a word and just did a good job soon the one who kept saying he will own the company was fired as he was all talk and no work the other janitor quit his job and was unemployed but the quiet one who did his work well, well he became the manager of the company.

Dear ones let us talk less ,listen more and accomplish more for our own lives, our spouse, our children and above all else our Lord God.

So from Tango to roses

Be Whoem You Were Born To Be

Hi there friends, Did you know everyone has talents some obvious and some not so obvious some need to be nurtured and developed and some just are there but everyone has something  which makes them distinct from the rest of the world.

No one else in this world has the same DNA as another individual. Even twins have different DNA.

You are unique, you a special, you are beautiful, you are well you are you. No one else is you. You may say I am not rich as my other family members, I am not as pretty as my friends but let me tell you God chose you to be in  this world, in this exciting year of 2012 . You may be a teenager or a pensioner but live life to your best potential now. Never say never or better late than never.

I love the movie Patch Adams. Patch had a dream and a vision to build the best children’s hospital in the world where children can just be children and have fun even when they were not well these children were not treated different from the other children they  had fun in hospital thanks to Patch Adams love for excessive enthusiasm for the sick children.

When Joni Ereckson Tada lost the use of her limbs she was angry with God but then now through her speaking and drawing with her paint brush in her mouth she is an inspiration to thousands of people. When we look at the Para Olympics  these people with out the healthy bodies yet they make history in this world with what they have how much so should we be thankful for what we have and who we are. We grumble over a few pounds of weight gain how much more thankful should you and I be with what we have.

Get inspiration from people who are taking part in para Olympics who are taking a stand in this world. We can not all be history makers but we can make a difference in peoples lives by  praying for  the sick, taking a homeless man for a meal, helping a blind person cross the road, helping out in some way or other.

We are living selfish lives , my home, my husband or wife and children Lord bless us four and no more. No that is not the way to pray or join the Bless Me club admission free expectation is much more.

Shame on us for being selfish we have to rise up and help out in this world if you can not go  where help is needed pray for those people , help in the church and community and be a blessing in society.

Time to leave comfort zone and go the valley of the earth where we are needed and where Jesus spent his 33 years with people all sorts of people but Christ touched their lives how much more so should we touch other people’s lives so that they change for the better
