The best fragrance is at night

Most of us have noticed how fragrant the air is at night. Passing through a garden or a field of clover the very atmosphere seems to be laden with delightful perfumes. Scientists now tell us that certain varieties of roses are from thirty to forty per cent more fragrant at night than in the day, and that other varieties of flowers show an almost equally large percentage.

But it is not the flowers alone that give out their heaviest fragrances in the darkness. It is true of human lives also. It takes the night of sorrow to call forth their sweetest fragrance. Patience, sympathy, love, forgiveness – these and other rare perfumes are exhaled most freely when the sick chamber to impart a word of encouragement or hope has testified that he has brought away infinitely more than he has given.

Helping to cry

Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once told of a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four-year-old child whose next-door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man crying, the little boy went into the old gentleman’s yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his mother asked him what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, “Nothing, I just helped him cry.”

Wherever I am…

 

The light of God surrounds me.
The love of God enfolds me.
The power of God protects me.
The presence of God watches over me.
The mind of God guides me.
The life of God flows through me.
The laws of God direct me.
The power of God abides within me.
The joy of God uplifts me.
The strength of God renews me.
The beauty of God inspires me.
Wherever I amGod is!

Just for you…

If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.
If he had a wallet, your photo would be in it.
He sends you flowers every spring.
He sends you a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, he listens.
He could live anywhere in the universe,
But he chose your heart!

Dreams bigger than imagination

Life is definitely the way we look at it. A midst the pain and suffering there is the celebration of being alive, frustrations and failures teach us the art of nobility and humility, joy and happiness extends the hope in life. Its up to us to perceive.

God looks beyond what man sees and says about you, and He has dreams for you that are bigger than you can imagine || Joseph Prince

The best….

The best makeup is a “smile“.

The best jewelry is “modesty“.

The best clothing is “confidence“.

The source of wisdom

A simple man met a very wise man.
“Can you tell me the source of your wisdom?” he asked.
“In two words,” the wise man replied, “good choices.”
“And what is the source of the good choices?”
“In one word, experience.”
“And to what do you attribute your experience?”
“In two words,” the wise man said, “bad choices.”

Days teach me

Days teach me
To always dream
However it may never come true
But that’s the best way
To live life through!

Days teach me
To dream so high
Never give up and always try
Never let go or say goodbye!

Days teach me
That when there is darkness
For sure dawn is the next
And when everything is so tiring
For sure there would be time to rest!

Days teach me
To always care for a friend
Always be true and never pretend
Always love with no end
And the broken hearts try to mend!

Days teach me
Never to feel the hate
Always be confident and never hesitate
Always believe in fate!

Days teach me
That lovers meet & stay together
And others are apart
So if you are one who have been left behind
Don’t cry and suffer
Just search for a new start!

Days teach me
The past I must forget
And nothing needs my regret!

Days teach me
To open my heart and forgive
Cause that will help me to survive and live!

Days teach me
To always offer my helping hand
And never doubt in people when there is no proof
And always try to understand!

Days teach me
Not to be shy
If I have done something wrong
But to admit it and be proud that I have learned
A lesson that will help me to be strong!

The sin of lying

A minister told his congregation, “Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17.”

The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many had read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and said, “Mark has only 16 chapters. I will now proceed with my sermon on the sin of  lying.”

The stinging scorpion

There was a man who saw a scorpion floundering around in the water. He decided to save it by stretching out his finger, but the scorpion stung him. The man still tried to get the scorpion out of the water, but the scorpion stung him again.

Someone nearby told him to stop saving the scorpion that kept stinging him. But the man said, “It is the nature of the scorpion to sting. It is my nature to love. Why should I give up my nature to love just because it is the nature of the scorpion to sting?”

Don’t give up loving.
Don’t give up your goodness,
Even if people around you sting.

Let’s not give up on love. If you have love in your heart, you always have something to give. Love is the one treasure that multiplies by division. It is the one gift that grows bigger the more you take from it. It is the one business in which it pays to be an absolute spendthrift. You can give it away, throw it away, empty your pockets, shake the basket, turn the glass upside down, and tomorrow you will have more than Imageever.
