Best Poem in the world …….

BEST POEM IN THE WORLD

I was shocked, confused, bewildered
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
  Nor the lights or its decor.

But it was the folks in Heaven
  Who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
  The alcoholics and the trash.

There stood the kid from seventh grade
  Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
  Who never said anything nice.

Herb, who I always thought
  Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
  Looking incredibly well.

I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
  I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
  God must’ve made a mistake.

‘And why is everyone so quiet,
  So somber – give me a clue.’
‘Hush, child,’ He said, ‘they’re all in shock.
  No one thought they’d be seeing you..’

JUDGE NOT!!

Remember…Just going to church doesn’t make you a
Christian any more than standing in your garage makes you a car.

Every saint has a PAST…
Every sinner has a FUTURE!

God’s Rosebud

GOD’S Rosebud

A new minister was walking with an older, more seasoned minister in the garden one day.

Feeling a bit insecure about what God had for him to do, he was asking the older preacher for some advice.

The older preacher walked up to a rosebush and handed the young preacher a rosebud and told him to open it without tearing off any petals.

The young preacher looked in disbelief at the older preacher 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 preacher, he proceeded to try to unfold the rose, while keeping every petal intact.

It wasn’t long before he realized how impossible this was to do.

Noticing the younger preacher’s inability to unfold the rosebud without tearing it, the older preacher 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 cannot 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 of the way.”

“The path that lies before me, Only my Lord knows. I’ll trust God to unfold the moments, Just as He unfolds the rose.

” Please share this poem with a friend if you enjoyed being reminded to let go and let God unfold your life.

Beauty is God’s work.

Rus in Vrede Dolla!

Ons het gister weer slegte nuus ontvang van nog n vriendin wat oorlede is woensdag.

Verlede jaar so Augustus/September het sy uitgevind sy het borskanker, en haar bors is toe sommer dadelik verwyder.

Sy was baie positief, en als het goed gegaan tot en met Maandag, het sy siek geword, hengse pyn in die rug, haar man het haar hospitaal toe geneem, en sy het net agteruit gegaan. Volgens die dokter het die chemie wat sy gekry het haar organe ens baie swak gemaak.

Sy sou nou binnekort gaan vir haar laaste bestraling.

Life ……..

God created the dog and said:
‘Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.’ The dog said: ‘That’s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten?’

So God agreed.

 

 God created the monkey and said:
‘Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.’

The monkey said: ‘Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the Dog did?’
And God agreed.

 

God created the cow and said:
‘You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer’s family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.’
The cow said: ‘That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years.. How about twenty and I’ll give back the other forty?’
And God agreed again.

 God created humans and said:
‘Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I’ll give you twenty years.’
But the human said: ‘Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?’
‘Okay,’ said God, ‘You asked for it.’

 


So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family.. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren.. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

 

Life has now been explained to you.
There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I’m doing it as a public service.

Words to Live By

Posted: Februarie 10, 2010 in Uncategorized

In life there are moments

when you miss someone

so much, that you wish

you could grab them

out of your dreams

and hug them tight!

When a door closes,

Another one opens,

But often we stand there

so long looking

at the closed door,

That we do not see

that one that’s opened.

Do not look at

physical appearances,

they can be deceiving.

Do not look at riches,

For they are only temporary.

Look for someone

who makes you smile

Because sometimes

it only takes a smile

to brighten up a

very dark day.

Look for someone

who makes your heart sing.

Dream what you

want to dream;

Go where you want to go

Try to be who you

really are;

Because life is short,

and often only gives

one change to do things.

I wish you in life

a lot of luck

to feel good;

Many trials

to remain strong;

Some tears

to remain human;

Lots of hope,

to become happy.

The really lucky people

do not necessarily have

the best of everything.

They are the ones who

make the most of

whatever life

throws at them.

The most splendid future

will always depend upon

the necessity to

release the past.

You cannot move forward

in life unless you learn

from your past mistakes

and move on.

When you were born

you were crying,

while everybody around

you was smiling.

Always live your life

smiling even when

other people around you

are crying.

Share this message with

people whom you really care about.

…to those who have made an impact

on you in some way or another.

… to those who made you smile

when you really needed it.

… to those who makes you

see the positive side of everything

just when you’ve hit rock bottom.

… to those whose friendship

you care about.

… to those whom you can’t do without.

And even if you don’t share it with anyone

do not worry,

nothing bad will happen.

Life is measured

with the quantity

of breaths you take,

but with the quantity

of moments that

took your breath away!

Therefore…

Hang in there baby!!!

Keep an eye out for

The adventures in life

That await you.

And always

remember that

Life is beautiful…

And so are You !!!!!!

Beauty for the Soul

Life is so short

So, think what is good,

Speak what is kind,

and try to live your best,

Then this world will be bright and beautiful to you

When money is lost nothing is lost,

When health is lost something is lost,

When caracter is lost everything is lost.

Live like a candle

which burns itself,

But gives light to others.

Impose your own terms upon life,

If you don’t you will have to accept the terms of others.

Look backwards with gratitude,

upwards with confidence

and forward with hope.

When you truly care for someone,

you don’t look for faults,

you don’t look for answers,

you don’t look for mistakes,

instead you fight the mistakes,

you accept the faults,

and you overlooks the excuses.

HAVE A STUNNING DAY !!!!
