I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Now have you experienced this, when you driving on a 2-wheeler, and it starts drizzling, and you remember you forgot your jacket at home, and deep down a very tiny small prayer comes like God, just if you could help me reach my destination!
And then with half doubt you still continue driving to see the drizzle increasing, but at once hey, the signal which as red just turned to green hen you reached there, and signal after that, and the usual traffic jam packed road turns out to be a super fast highway, and you really getting a way through the traffic with ease, and just as you enter your place, it pours down!
Have you experienced this feeling, when you really want to be there for something, and you have all the obstacles coming front of you, until the last minute and it feels nearly impossible to be there in any ways, I went through one recently.
I know I have not spoken much about CFCI Singles, and youth, which I have planned for soon, and will do soon, but as I was telling, there was CFCI Singles National Conference to be held in Mangalore, in my hometown, and Singles from all over India would be coming, and it was my community conference, my brothers and sisters coming to meet all together once in a year, and I was so eager to go for it, and was planning from a year long, even before I got a job and got sent here to Cochin.
Recently one of my brother Biron D’souza had an incident occured in his life, that he shared with me! I felt that I need to share this to all. The below content is all in his own words, unedited. Do read on.
My friends from Mangalore were down in Bangalore over the weekend, we went bowling and watch the IPL finals together at one of their cousins place on Saturday. I wanted to be up and go in the morning for mass on sunday so that i could make it for the meeting in the evening. Didn find a place near the place where we were staying but two of my friends were goin towards MG road to meet up another friend for breakfast, and near there is the St Patricks Church, i found out from the CFC that mass was at 11 there, so it worked out well.
It was some days back in my college! It was lab practical exam time! My favourite exams actually! Coz I love practicals, than the boring theory which its not possible for me to memorize! Until the eleventh hour everyone were busy with the books outside the lab, some mugging up as much as possible, some just opening the book for the first time, some still inquiring which exam it is actually, some roaming around searching for their study mates, and some just lost in their own thoughts!
The Bell rings, and we proceed inside, take our papers and seats, and start the 2 hour long practical exam. Dont ask me why, but the university rule says we have to write the programs on the sheet of paper, and if it is write then proceed it to execute on the system, quite not certain whats the practical part of it, if you could just by-heart the program and start writing it at once, but thats how the education system runs, no comments!
To all the believers this incident will very much appeal for sure!
Have you got the sickness of yawning or getting bored while reading a religious book, but the same thing doesn’t happen if you are reading an novel or watching a TV series?
Why do we yawn?
The title sounds a kinda weird for some, and for others its just thought provoking of whats it all about!
The Time I write this post, its now
8056 days, 20 hours, 51 minutes and 59 seconds or 22 years, 21 days, 20 hours, 51 minutes, 59 seconds
to be precise from the day and time I was born, or when I just entered this “beautiful” world. (If you want to check yours now you could do it here.)
So now to say its been a long time I am here in this world, with a new strange thing happening everyday. A strange news, a strange person I meet, a new technology or invention I hear about, a new smile I get, a new friend I make, a new reason to live life one more day and on the other hand, a new way of crime I hear, a new bomb attack, a murder, a new news to be sad for, a demise of a dear friend or relative, a new topic to fight about, a new reason to make an enemy, a new reason to die for.
