Love And Forgiveness

By Sangeetha

1 John 4:7,8 Beloved let us love one another, For love is of God and everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God for God is LOVE

Today I would like to talk about love.

L is for leaning on our Saviour’s heart which is full of compassion

O is for offering a sacrifice of praise and happiness to the lord who has blessed us by giving us His son to reign in our hearts.

V is for versatile forgiveness that the Lord gives us when we sin and ask Him to forgive our sins

E is for every spiritual and physical blessings that the Lord has given us and for that we are grateful.

My dear friends we have to love everyone. It is so easy to love those who love us and are good to us, but it does not end there we have to love those who have wronged us, mistreated us, who hate us and those who don’t like us. How can we love them you may ask? Think of Jesus on that cruel cross, where the soldiers spat on Him, whipped him, cursed him, put those nails in his hands and feet, YET our wonderful and great Saviour said “ Father forgive them for they do not know what they are doing “ He is God he could have asked for 10,000 angels to come and deliver him YET he went through that cruel cross out of his love for you and for me. 

If Jesus can forgive them, how much more can we forgive those who hurt us, wronged us, ,  and hate us. It is nothing like what Jesus went through on that cruel cross. Forgive them and let it go. Do not talk about it or even think about it.

Let me tell you something interesting after Jesus forgave those who crucified him and he died on that cruel cross, that was not the end. On the 3rd day Jesus arose to glory, power and might. He now reigns in the Heavens as the Lord Of Lords and the King of Kings. Jesus was BLESSED after he forgave.

Dear friends forgive and let the bad things people have done to you go, don’t dwell on it, and you will be blessed. The Bible says Faith, Hope and Love but the greatest is LOVE. You can not love without forgiveness and you can not forgive without Love. Love and forgiveness go hand in hand. 

John 15:12 says This is my commandment that you love one another as I have loved you . It is our commandment to love.

There was once a missionary doctor in  Africa who lived there with his wife and son. One day 2 men from the village came to see the doctor and showed him their feet, which was covered with leprosy, The missionary doctor asked his son to get some warm water and washed the feet of these people, bandaged it gave them some food and sent them home. The son of the missionary said it was then that he saw God’s love in action.

We have to love our brothers and sisters not just by words but by action. My grandmother who I lovingly call as dadho, always had an open house and whenever we had visitors whatever food we had on the table she offered it to them, it did not have to be the best food which in India is Briyani but even it was just a simple rice and curry she offered it to them, now she is being offered food and love from our wonderful family friends. This is karma  what you give out will one day come back to you.

Let us keep giving love, keep being a blessing, keep being an encouragement , and one day it will come back to you.

God wants us to love and forgive, no matter how people have wronged you and hurt you, love them , forgive them and then let it go. Then you will have peace in your heart and the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ will bless you . 

Let us pray and ask our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to love and forgive others who wronged us.

Our Dear Heavenly Father God, The Lord who created the smallest little grass , To the Lord who created the Great Cedar tree, Pine Tree And Oak Tree. The Lord who created the smallest little ant to the majestic Elephant and Lion . The Lord who created the universe, The Sun, The Moon, The stars, The sky and all the planets which keep revolving but do not bump into each other because of their perfect gravitational force. God what a great wonderful, powerful God you are. Yet you care for us and have good plans for our lives. Lord Jesus help us to love and forgive those who have hurt us and help us to let it go by your grace. We love you, honour you and thank you. In Jesus name we pray Amen.

The Keyword is Love

imagesAs I gaze on the beauty of the King

My heart lets out a song to sing

The Lord brought me out of depression

My emotions in suppression

My song was in condemnation

But his smile brought me out of condemnation

His love was a libation to my oppression

Lord you rule the nations

I in awe of you am in fascination

Will I ever from my cage and in my moments of rage shed a tear,

It was then you were near as word from the book of life

Eliminated all my strife

Lord cut out my worldliness with a knife

As I bleed in my heart

Please your love from me never depart

I have nothing

I am nothing

But because of my great Lord and King

I can sing

Like the church bells ring

Like the lark on a tree

Oh Lord you the future for see

If you can take nothing and make it something

Let me be your clay

Mould me, break me, make me

And when all is done an earthen vessel carrying the presence of the King

Take me as I sing

Oh is that a church bell

Let it play the song of the king

A song I love to sing

All glory, honour and power to the King

Take me as your prodigy,, your instrument

As I weep reading the eschatological verse of the new testament

Thank you for removing the inner torment

The Holy Book has one statement

That is LOVE that came from up above

One day to you I will fly like a dove

Till then let me be Love

Singing with power because in my heart is you my light house tower that shines ever brighter even when the storms shower blood and water

Love yes Love that is the word, the password, the key word

Love, now and forever my wonderful king and saviour let Love reign

Do not hold it back let there be no lack, be it white or black the world is connected by the holy book, take a look, be it gentle, gentile or crook, the word is love, that is that love is the format, it is not a doormat it is Love ,

do I see a dove it is a sign from up above, let it sing as the church bells ring, always honour the king, as all I have to bring is myself sans nothing, but He is everything who took an earthen vessel to carry the presence of the Lord, sans pride, sans ambition, sans ruler of the nation but indwelt with love from up above,

let love reign take away fear and pain, wipe away every tear because the coming of the Lord is near, Lord you are you, make this world brand new,

just like the early morning dew let there be love that is like a refreshing river from the mountains, like a waterfall in a rain forest, let them boast of the love of the lord,

you are the great creator, the world’s originator, our benefactor lead us guide us and open the right doors for us, as the church bells ring, people in the choir sing as I look out the window I see people rushing their emotions gushing every woman wanting to look dashing is this all life is about,

living like a highly technical robot, no take away fear as I shed a tear thy presence I feel near saying I love you dear,

life is not just about money or being funny it is wisdom that rules the Kingdome that will never end, who is that waiting round the bend, my love, my life let there never be strife as all I am is an humble wife with nothing to give but because of love I liveIMG_3018

How To Be A Blessing

Image

Hi there darlings, sweethearts, how are you all doing ? Today I want to talk about Blessing. What is a Blessing ? How can we be a Blessing ? Blessing my dear friends goes back in time to the very Beginning to the time of Creation, when  the Lord God created the world he said it was good and in saying it was good he Blessed the world with goodness, then the Lord God created man and woman and Blessed them. Because they were God’s handiwork and beautiful in  His sight.Then get ready for the sad music, yes man and woman brought a curse on themselves by disobeying Lord God Almighty by eating the fruit of knowledge and now man hard to work for his food and man did not walk with God anymore as in the days when he walked in obedience with our Creator Lord.

But there was still a communion between man and God. What I am trying to say is when we are obedient to the Lord there is a Blessing and with disobedience comes a curse.Now come a few rhetorical questions, How do we obey the Lord at all times ? Is it possible to be a perfect Christian? How does God judge disobedience in the 21st centaury ?

Dear ones there was only one ever perfect man and that was our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and He lived a blameless life and suffered and died for us so that through His righteousness Our unrighteousness may be made pure, and we may be justified through His grace and love that he poured out for us on Calvary.You my dear friend are pure, may be you have addictions but through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ when we repent and ask for forgiveness we are like pure white blankets the stain of sin is removed and Satan may remind you of past sin but our Lord has forgiven and forgotten it.

That by itself is the greatest Blessing God has given us the Blessing of justification. Now when the Lord God justifies us we are Blessed with the knowledge of knowing we are going to spend eternity with Our Lord Jesus Christ and “as we try and climb the steps of glory to glory we know that one day we will glorified and pure as Him” ( glory to glory part taken from Sunday morning message at church)

Now we can be a Blessing when we obey the word and the theme that runs all through the Bible like a scarlet thread of the Blood of Christ is LOVE and when we reach out in love not just for those to like us but for those who do not like us then we incur the Blessing of our Lord  and Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus showed us true love and  He was Blessed by God the father, how much more should you and I be an ambassador of love to the fallen, broken, lonely an d those who hate us without cause, Dear ones let us love this love can only come through the word and prayer and let us reflect Christ and Be a Blessing in doing this we will be Blessed.

Love overcomes, hate, pride, prejudice, partiality and like a light reflects and radiates Blessings in a dark and fallen world.Let our prayer be Lord make me a channel of love . Be Blessed !!photo

My Weight loss Journey

Hi there dear friends, it is me the Indian Aunty again on a Mission, you may ask me what mission aunty, the mission my dear munchkins is to be a size 10 again about 50- 55 kgs by Christmas day.

 

This is the best gift I can give myself, I have a personal trainer and my husband who has lost a lot of weight is also encouraging me on this weightloss journey.

I am now 73kgs and I love cooking and when you love cooking it is easy to indulge in the labours of your hard work in the kitchen.

 

But the time has come to become that coveted yummy mummy, as I go to leave my daughter in school I see other mums with more children looking like Victoria Secret Models, I label it to good genes but darlings it is more self discipline.

 

I ask why God why do I have to be on the rounder side ? He the Almighty answers in a deep base voice “darling how many times did you go around the kitchen and open the fridge door and how many comfort foods of tea and toast with marmalade have you had? why child why ? Now child practise discipline “

 

To tell you the truth munchkins I do not like exercise but my trainer does not push me above the limit. My husband and I when we work out together at the gym has started me on lifting weights but we women have to suffer for beauty be it braces for my teeth as I had in my teenage years, to high heel shoes and now the gym, I would have loved to get a tummy tuck and liposuction but  as a struggling musician and author that can only be a dream.

 

I am not proud of my 73kg weight nor my size 14 clothes, but through hard work, determination and dedication this can be achieved. I have my personal trainer for 8 weeks and  I hope to at least drop two dress sizes by then. My Birthday is coming up on November so hopefully I will be a size12 by then.

 

Why is there so much hype on money, looks, cars and homes, that is the way the world measures success but I believe to be a successful individual you must have peace of mind, self discipline, love and security.

 

“You have to make you proud “and making you proud of who you are and what you have achieved you hence become a strong individual, no one can walk on this road called life for you, you have made a choices some right, some wrong but you have to live with the choices you have made. It is never too late, there is hope,  pray you make the right choices.

 

I may not have much materially but I have a wonderful husband and a gorgeous daughter and all the choices I make revolves around them, So make the right choice get on that treadmill “you be proud of you” and being comfortable with who you are, you send positivity to people around you. You are beautiful, You are precious, God has a wonderful plan for your life

There Is Hope

Are you sick ? Are you tired ? Do you feel you have no hope ? Do you have an addiction of some kind ? Are you debt ? If you have said yes to some or all the questions above then you are a normal human being living in the 21st century.

Jermiah29 :11 says” For I know the plans I have for you plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future “

 

In this day and age with master cards, pay pal, online shopping, drink shops open till 12am, porn on the internet, and even on kindle and drugs.You say I have sunk too low but friends there is a way and the only way is up.

 

When Jesus walked on water Peter the disciple of Jesus said” Lord let me walk on water too” and as Peter saw the waves of addiction, porn, drugs, bullying, he lost sight of the Lord and started to sink and then in desperation Peter cried out to the Lord,” LORD , LORD SAVE ME “and then JESUS REACHED OUT HIS HAND AND SAVED HIM.

 

There is a way to overcome debt, drugs, alcohol, porn, the only way up is by calling out to the Lord saying Lord have mercy on me, forgive me and save me and Jesus will lift you up through the storms, through the waves, Look into our Beloved Lord’s Eyes and See and Feel the love he has for you and for me.

 

For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whosoever believed in him shall not perish but have everlasting life John 3:16

 

It does not say be a hermit, missionary or fanatic but simply, humbly, genuinely like a child jumping into her daddy’s hands, believe and he will hold on to your hand and lift you up.

 

Yes there is a way for you, yes you can overcome addictions and debts believe in the Lord, talk to Him and He Will Set You Free, Who the Son sets free is free indeed.

 God Bless YouImage

The Robot Who Fell In Love

ImageProfessor Scientist Muller, lived in a world of his own, as he loved making little Robots that cleaned homes, To robots who answered phones, To Transformer Robots, To little gadgets that spies people in their homes or little bugs to hear what people say in secret on their phones or even in their homes, The FBI and KGB and Even Scotland Yard had invested and sought help from Scientist Muller on many of his various gadgets.

But what he was making now was very special and more spectacular than any of his previous inventions he was making a female Robot called Lara but with a human heart, so that she will care like a human, think like a caring Robot and at the same time look completely human, yet this Robot because of it’s human heart and the compassion that professor Muller put into her to make her stand apart from other robots who had no feelings whatsoever.

Professor Muller wanted this Robot to show to his counterparts other professors, scientists, and business men that the impossible is actually possible, it is possible to have human machines and machines, who feel love , empathy, compassion but professor Muller made sure that the robot did not feel negative emotions as this could be detrimental to mankind.

So Professor Muller worked on her heart and feelings and now he had to work on her outward body, with a heart and mind like mother Theresa and a gorgeous body of veins and wires with a live heart, he wanted this beautiful Robot to be gorgeous, He knew he was not God, but the Lord had given him wisdom to create this masterpiece and felt like creation was starting over again to mankind, where half man and half machine are sent into the world but these genius professors and scientists to help the world somehow in some cosmic, scientific  yet realistic way.

It was time to make her body, he wanted her to be beautiful so he chose a light olive yet pale colouring of skin made of human skin that he grew with stem cells from his laboratory and with blood and wires and bone structure with metal for her bones and skull, but the brain was the most intricate part of the body she had a human brain and a human heart with a Robot body, she had eyes that could tell everything about the person just by looking at them to keep her from danger, those eyes were piercing bright green eyes.

It was now time to make her hair grow it was long dark and brunette, with pale olive skin, her nose was perfect and her lips were pink like rose petals ,yet this bionic, robot angel had love and compassion and a heart like mother Theresa. But though she had a body like a beautiful woman, this amazing bionic women could never bear children.

It was time to unveil this gorgeous creature that creation made with the guidance of Creator by the wisdom bestowed on Professor Muller, Professor Muller like all other leading scientists was eccentric, funny, kind and a genius yet every compliment he got he made lightly of. The business men, Fellow Professors and representatives of the FBI, KGB and Scotland Yard were there.

Professor Muller decided to call his masterpiece Lara.

When the time of unveiling was finally there, there were sceptics, Cynics and curious people and the Professor Muller loudly and clearly said Lara come forward and introduce your self

There was silence and then there were gasps as the most gorgeous 6 feet 2 in girl with long dark hair, beautiful green eyes, lovely body covered with jeans, a tank top and a blazer and trainers she did not need fancy shoes as she was exquisite.

Lara came in to the room smiled and introduced herself in a calm, well balanced, clear distinctive way she was one of the most beautiful robots that mankind had seen .Lara loved people and people loved Lara, though many business men had offered Professor Muller  money for Lara, the Professor flatly refused, this was his baby, his masterpiece, His agent of compassion for the world.

Suddenly there was emergency in the Land, the terrorists had hit again and there was unrest in the USA as the twin towers crumbled on to the ground Lara immediately went to help the people as she was a specialized nurse. The people loved her and soon she became head nurse with love and compassion yet an extremely  efficient nurse.

As America went to war with Iraq, she had to look after many wounded soldiers, One day as usual she went to work there she met Alden a US Marine officer he had a bullet wound in his leg. Alden was the father Maria and had lost his wife to cancer, Maria was his world, he was sure he would never love another woman all he cared about was his country and his gorgeous little girl who was three years old, he was angry with God for taking away his wife, he was angry thinking he would never walk again and yes he knew he was a grumpy soldier, that was till he met Lara

Lara went as usual in her light blue nurse uniform in her six feet frame her long hair in a bun with those piercing blue eyes she went to Alden’s bed to have a look at his leg, Alden himself was blonde haired 6feet 4in, beautiful tanned body and hands and was sound asleep when Lara came to his bed , Lara saw him and something in her heart and mind drew a deep sigh from her, this gorgeous male soldier wearing nothing but military shorts lips slightly parted blonde hair drawn back covered by a thin cotton bed sheet he was so strong yet so helpless, she had to wake him up so that he would take the medicine but she just sat there watching him not wanting to wake up this demi God.

Yet through the power of senses be it love, attraction, instinct which even over rides machine Alden slowly opened his eyes and stared in the gorgeous green wide eyes he had seen and something jumped from the pit of his stomach to his heart, he had pushed down every instinct of attraction towards women he was so sure he would never love again till he looked in to those deep green eyes, a stray blond hair had untangled itself and was over his eyes which he could not push away as his had had drips so Lara slowly gently pushed that strand of hair back and something like electric current pulsated through both their bodies they both felt it, this attraction was stronger than anything Lara felt it even overcame the boundaries of man and machine.

Lara tried to sound business like and gave the two tablets to Alden, eyes still fixed on Lara, Alden did as he was told, He asked her name and Lara told him and his name was on the chart by his bed and she said you must be Alden, nice meeting you Alden did not stop looking into gorgeous green eyes Lara he said not knowing what to say, his emotions ran deep he licked his lower lip without even knowing it and blood pulsated in Lara’s heart she was confused, scared and did not understand what these feeling were she had to run, she had to get away but as she was about to get up Alden held onto her hand with his free hand and said don’t go,

Lara looked into his gorgeous blue eyes her heart and mind full of love and compassion for this Marine and they talked till tea time, but it was Alden who was doing most of the talking he spoke about the wife he lost to cancer, he showed her the picture of Maria on his mobile phone and Lara felt a rush of motherly love towards this little girl who had no mother, Lara knew she could not have any children yet she knew she would love this little girl as her own daughter.

Days and Weeks passed by as Alden the US Marine got better and Lara was the his inspiration to walk again and live again, one day after physiotherapy in the hospital as they were waling hand in hand Alden kissed Lara, Lara felt a special love, bonding, desire and compassion in her heart for Alden as Alden felt the love reciprocated he did not waste any time but got onto his knees though they hurt he did not care  that Spring afternoon, where the world was simple and normal Alden asked Lara to marry him not knowing that Lara had a secret in a more computerised, digitally enhanced world kept from the knowledge of the public that she was half machine.

That evening Lara went to talk, to her mentor, her creator the man she called father, her most trusted advocate, who kept silent as she talked about Alden now what was she to do? Professor Muller listened and said Alden should know the truth, Dear daughter you can not get married in a lie, you must tell him though your heart and mind is human you are part machine you know that daughter don’t you tell him to come over for dinner and we will see what can be done.

The next evening Alden came over for dinner with a bottle of white wine over diner prof Muller opened up about his inventions and gadgets and Alden listened spell bound over such wisdom of the mechanical, computerised world, then the time came to tell him about Lara approached, Lara felt her heart beat fast at first Alden did not believe that this gorgeous creature that he loved was part machine but as professor Muller told him about her heart and mind being human and that she could never have babies both Alden and Lara wept. Alden said he would always love her and that love has surpassed the boundaries of machine and now man has created machines compatible to man in the form of human robots that one can only read in a sci-fi book,

The next week as Prof Muller presided over the ceremony man and half man half machine tied the knot as Lara came out of the church in her beautiful white dress. Maria came running jumped in to Lara’s hands and said the magic words “ I love You Mum” Lara knew then she may not be completely human women and bear children but Maria will always be her first born through love

Now I tell you my readers there will be a time when machine will do the work of man and man and machine will walk hand in hand for the good of mankind embrace the good, embrace the change, 2013 is moving into a futuristic world this world where the future embraces the simple and mundane of man, and computer and robot at the same time do not lose faith in the higher power called God who created the mind of man.

Little Rochelle

ImageEarly morning at three am on the 25th of June in a little town of England a gorgeous baby girl was born and her parents named that pretty little baby Rochelle, but as the doctor examined her little leg one leg was shorter than the other leg, but apart from that Rochelle was beautiful and healthy.

It was the next day the 26th of June , the parents of Rochelle and Rochelle went home from the hospital but on the way home due to fate, bad luck or whatever the mortals say to evil befalling good, the car of Rochelle and her parents met with an accident as there car was hit by a drunk driver but Rochelle was saved covered by her mother’s body in the car who died saving her.

Rochelle did not understand what that catastrophic event did to her young life but the heaven’s were smiling down at Rochelle, her grandmother on her mother’s side said she will look after her, Her grandma named Grandma Agnus looked after Rochelle and instilled in her courage, strength and even though Rochelle walked with a limp she excelled in sports especially running.

As the years went by Rochelle grew up to be a bright smart intelligent and beautiful girl and though she had a loving grandmother, she cried for her mother and father who she had never met or even remembered, but her grandmother gave Rochelle a gold chain with a heart shaped locket and in that locket were the pictures of her mom and dad who had been child hood sweethearts.

One day Rochelle’s school put an ad in the school newsletter for any of the girl’s interested in joining the girl’s relay team, Rochelle was excited she Knew in her heart she could do it, she wanted to be part of this team, there were times  when the older girls bullied Rochelle’s walk but that only made Rochelle more determined. So as the time drew near for the relay team to be chosen Rochelle practised and practised and she even made friends with a little boy named Mike who timed her and encouraged her to run and when the time of the  girls for the school team to be picked came Rochelle was picked  and as she ran faster and outshone the other girls there was a thunderous applause and she saw two doves sitting on a tree after she made her team and she knew somehow, somewhere, how we do not know but in her heart of hearts her parents were watching her and she did not want to let them down.

Soon it was time for the inter regional  schools relay to be run and Rochelle practised hard much harder as she had a slight limp, it was time for her to get the baton and run, her grandmother and Mike were watching as she ran fast one of the girl’s in  the opposing group kicked Rochelle and caught her off gourd and Rochelle fell down crying with pain she could her gasps from the crowd but then she felt two people lifting her to her feet a beautiful lady and a handsome man telling her to run and not give up telling she can do it their voices were loving and encouraging and at the same time she felt strength on her legs return the beautiful two people lifting her and telling her to continue running and she did and as she finished her race she found out she had won her team had won she looked for those beautiful people around her but could not find them as they put her gold medal around her head  she saw two doves sitting on the tree watching her, she went home looked at the pictures  in her locket to say good night to her parents in the picture of her locket as she always did and then it dawned those beautiful people who helped her had the same faces of the pictures in the locket it was cold outside so she went to close the windows and there were the two doves on the tree watching over her, with tears flowing freely down her cheeks regretting she will never see her parents  alive yet so thankful to have them close by she gently kissed the pictures in her locket and went to sleep.

Many years passed by she never saw the doves  again until she heard her grandma shouting downstairs get up child you don’t want to keep the groom waiting yes she was  eighteen years old and marrying her childhood sweetheart Mike as she got dressed in white and stood outside the church in the pine tree were two doves her eyes welled up in tears and she knew that her parents were there with her watching her at this great day, her grandmother walked her to the aisle and there stood Mike who was 19 years old looking proudly at her . She held on to her locket as she looked thru the church window as the two doves flew away, her new life was starting her parents had watched over her all through her as the words rang from her mouth to” I do” to the kiss of commitment to Mike she knew that some where, some how, be it fate, karma, good luck that the people who love you the most will never leave you they are always alive, in your heart and mind as she held her locket, Rochelle whispered thank  you mum and dad and gave her grandma a big hug, as she walked down the aisle with Mike as Mrs Rochelle.

The Land Of Loulous And Bambinos

ImageMy handsome son, do you know that there is a magical land far, far away called the Loulou land, where there are the most beautiful pink and purple castles which the Lolous protect from the evil Bambinos,

 

Listen child the Loulous are small little funny creatures, they love to lough, play hopscotch and bowling with magic  bowls in the sky and see who can make the rainbow the fastest with their bowling bowls and do you know their favourite game is golf to see you can hit the golf ball the highest to hit a star.

 

What did you say son ?? What they look like  ?? Hmmmm very hard to decrible I would say they are a cross between a care bear, a dog and a human. They are these super cuddly creatures with dog’s ears care bear fur and faces but with legs and hands of humans and once you see them you will love them.

 

All the kingdoms these Loulous live next to love them except the evil bambinos.

The Bambinos are black dogs with sharp teeth and are jealous of the Loulous as they are always happy. Oneday the Bambinos decided to to go to Loulou land and capture the Loulos but the magic good wizard of the stars came with his long cape and covered the Loulos so that their land would become invisible to the bad Bambinos and he put a fence of fire around the Loulou land so the Bambinos could not get near the Loulouland with out getting burnt.

 

 But do you know the Bambinos wrote a letter on a scroll to the evil witch of the  witchery that they want to eat the Loulous, so the evil witch said hehehe, yummy yummuy I can use some Loulou  meat to give me more supernatural powers to conquer the magic kingdoms, he he he.

 

 So the Bambinos and the evil witch plotted to take over the Loulou land and capture the happy sweet loulous, so the witch said listen here my sweet Bambinos come here while I stroke your chin, I am going to disguise myself as poor old lady and put you all my beautiful Bambinos in my back pack and when they let me in to Loulou land you put  your  witchery swords on which makes nets to capture the Loulous and take them home on my magic broom plane.Ok darlings eat up my delicious stew to make you more evil ands cunning and capture those grinning happy bears tomorrow he he hehe. And she disappeared.

 

Meanwhile the Loulous were playing golf and eating their favourite honey tree fruit from their magical happy honey tree, the tree was rainbow coloured with pink , purple , and blue leaves, with silver striped bark, with gold, red fruits, the fruits were so juicy and sweet and tasted like honey, so the Loulous named them their honey tree fruit. Suddenly there came a swish and a swoosh and woosh and there stood their best friend the wise good wizard.

 

The Wizard said “ my dear Loulous when I was in  the study I felt a cold draft pass through lolou land and the stars too seem to be warning me that there is danger ahead be very careful who you let into Loulou land and Wise loulou keep this key with a red button if there is any danger press that button, and there was a swish, there, there was a swoosh and woosh and the wizard disappeared.

 

The next morning all the Loulous decided they were going to play football and then play golf, suddenly the kind hearted Loulou said look an old lady is at the gate, Ohhhh she needs some fruit and a drink from our blueberry juice river and oooohhhhh she is carrying a heavy bag.

 

The Loulous ran to the large gate of the castle and let the old lady inside who was actually an evil witch and in her bag she was carrying the evil bambinos, suddenly there was a cloud of  dark smoke every where and the evil Bambinos jumped out of the bag and started chasing the Loulous,” help help the Loulous cried “and Mr Smart Loulou who had the magic key dropped it in the raspberry river in the chaos but the smart Loulou called his friend Mr Loulou codfish and asked him to find the magic key so that he could save the Loulous from destruction from the evil witch and the bambinos

 

Just as the cod fish found the magic key to give Mr Smart Loulou the bambinos caught up with him and started chasing him around the raspberry river, but smart Loulou climbed a large magic honey tree but there was no way Mr cod fish  Loulou could give him the key and the evil bambinos were circling the magic honey tree making growling noises but then Mr cod fish gave Mr Smart Loulou a wink and motioned him to hold his hands out and jumped high in the air and gave smart Loulou the key smart Loulou immediately pressed the button for help and there was a swish and a swoosh and whoosh and there was the wise wizard with a lot of friendly, helpful armed elves who chased the Bambinos away with their magic stick and they bound up the evil witch and sent her with all the evil bambinos to a far away land to never trouble the Loulous again.

 

The wise and good wizard helped restore the magic land of the Loulous to a safe and happy place again, and you my son if you are good one of these days you might just dream of Loulou land with it’s magic honey tree and raspberry rivers and when you wake from your dream of perfect beautiful fantasy, to rush hour chaotic traffic, and people always in a hurry to work take a deep breath and think of the life of the care free Loulous and that will bring peace amidst  our chaotic world, Good night son and sweet dreams.

Fairies And Mushrooms

ImageMy dear sweet darling daughter, long ago when I was your age living in the exotic land of India, I discovered mushrooms growing in our large garden beneath the goose berry trees and our coconut tree. One day when I was playing in the garden I saw a beautiful set of wings I first thought it was a dragon fly, I then thought No it is a butterfly I later discovered it was a magnificent fairy, It was not a large granny fairy, but a beautiful exotic gentle sweet creature who helps children in time of need and do you know what these fairies live under mushrooms. We call them the magic mushrooms.

To the normal adult eye they are mushrooms, but darling to the wonderful, imaginative child like mind, these are magic mushrooms with out cynicism or disbelief of an adult, you have to look for these magic mushrooms, they are mostly hidden under large trees, shrubs or bushes but you have to look very quietly and then you might just spot them

One day darling when I was your age I got lost in a crowd, and I did not know how to get home, then I suddenly saw a flutter, then another, soon there were so many beautiful fairies all around me, they asked me little girl why are you crying, I said I was lost and did not know how to get home, then one beautiful fairy gave me something to eat it looked like a large beautiful pink and blue and purple mushroom, but tasted of chocolate, marshmallows and lemonade it was delicious and suddenly I got wings to fly like the fairies.

The wings were light and transparent with pink, blue and purple lights flashing through them, they told me to wait a moment and started discussing suddenly they flew over to be beaming and said little girl we have a surprise for you, you are going to fairy land for the night and tomorrow you can go home, needless to say darling daughter of mine I was thrilled, me a mere mortal had this great honour of visiting fairy land, I did not quite expect what I saw.

So they told me to flutter my wings three times, wink two times and blink 5 times and then surprise of surprises I was in the most beautiful place of magic and beauty, “ listen closely now child “ there where purple, blue, red and bright pink mushrooms, there was a light pink sky, there were rainbow coloured rivers where the fairy babies were playing and there were stars that shown in broad daylight, the stars were sliver and gold , the grass was full of coloured glitter and one of the fairies took me by the hand and said welcome to our humble abode,

I managed to mumble humble but was so awestruck by the beauty of the place it was fantastic, it was glorious, it was exceptionally more beautiful than my little imaginative fantasies.

They then said little girl now you are going to meet the king and queen of the fairies and have dinner with them, I said I was honoured and then they took me to the most beautiful mushroom which looked like a castle it was glorious, it was light blue, light pink, silver and gold and had diamond doors and stood on the foot of the rainbow river with a magic golden bridge which only allows you to step on it if you saw the magic words to a pink glittered mushroom, one of the fairies mumbled something in the little microphone of the mushroom and immediately there was this magnificent bridge. Sorry darling I did not quite get the magic words but the bridge was breathtakingly beautiful.

I went into the mushroom castle there were fairies there in red and black uniforms and then suddenly there was a sound of trumpets and drums and the fairies in red and black uniforms were playing the drums and trumpets that they hid under their beautiful wings and then an old fairy with blue transparent wings cleared his throat Ahem…… Ahemmmm but the music went on, suddenly he brought large symbols from under his wings and clanked them together the music stopped and there was silence bewildered that there was sudden silence he cleared his throat again and said Ahem, he had glasses on and took out a large scroll and said ladies and gentlemen, I mean fairies of Mushroom land, I now present the King and Queen of Fairy Country

All the fairies put their wings in a bowing position and looked down  and one fairy said bow to our great Majesty and Queen of Fairies so I bowed down but could not help peeking what I saw took my breath away there was the most exquisite and gorgeous Queen of fairies she was taller than the other fairies wore gold with diamonds and her wings, oooh her wings were transparent gold with silver and diamond cob web designs and she was so beautiful with a large gold crown I was in awe of her, as she looked my way she did not expect to see a human in fairy land and when she saw me she gave me the sweetest smile and I bowed to her again more in awe and thankfulness for rewarding me with a smile.

The King was handsome and blonde with a Diamond crown and was talking to his advisors about something and then the King and Queen beckoned me to them I flew over to them with my wings and they said daughter of the earth you have come to fairy land at the right time, there are some bad witches and evil wizards who try and catch fairies and put them in bottles like a trophys and that has strained the relationships between fairies and humans and now through you, as you have seen us we want you to do something for us that will change the history of fairies and humans, we want to be invisible to humans from now on unless we choose to reveal our selves so that fairy land and fairies will be safe so you will be the bridge that makes fairies invisible to humans what you see you will remember  and the sweetness of you a young child will dissolve the curse of evil witches and wizards who catch our fairies and now you will sleep as you sleep the queen of fairies will sing and when you wake you will be in your own bed at your home and for the safety of fairies and the happiness of the children we fairies help in time of need, but from now no one will know we exist but you chosen daughter of the earth you will remember every time you see and mushroom thank you for saving fairy land good night and then I heard the most beautiful soul stirring music and then I was in bed.

My mother called me saying get up girl you have to get ready for school I kept my secret of the fairies from the time of school to marrying your sweet daddy and then when you were born my beautiful darling I wanted you to know, I wanted you to know about the beautiful land of fairies, then all of a sudden my daughter said look mummy a butter fly a beautiful gorgeous butterfly was at our window and I knew the beautiful fairies were watching over us.  “Darling it is time for school, remember what I said about the mushrooms. Here’s your lunch now hurry or you will be late for school”.

Bye darling, fairies thank you for looking after my little girl.
