Boyish again!!!!!!!!

I really don't know wht happened to me today at church. I was sitting there as usual and listening to the Pastor preach on repentance and the wages of sin and it was fine, my mind was just wandering though and I was just there physically present - mentally absent (well not recommended at church though..).. my parents and sister sitting near me.I looked out of the huge wodden windows and saw it was raining and it was beautiful.The pastor finished the message and was praying so I bowed down in the pew. Suddenly it struck me.... DO I GET TO BE A BOY NOW?? NOOOO....

gone are the days when I was soo carefree, nothing to worry about, when my grades and books were my mummys problem and not my own...I had an idea..I took my denim jacket and slowly, without anybody noiticing slipped out of church.....I really mean slid..much like in the good ol' days....

I knew I couldnt take the car cause my Dad had the keys and we come to church in toghther as a family in one car...and I dont know why but I dint notice the rain drizzling...well I enjoyed was like I was 13 all over again....I just walked the roads of the my lovely city..I started appreciating the lovely buildings and the trees again...I walked like 2 kms to a "tattu kada" (any mallus around will understand) its like a hawker shop...I sat down..well then, my Mom doesnt like me eating from hawkers..
but well I was 13 again..werent I??? so I had my fill of Dosas and vadas.

and again walked in the rain to my home...all the time I had my cellphone off..(boyish and shewd!!) safe in my jacket, it made my day..rediscovering the boyishness in me...I wish I was a boy(the real Tom Sawyer stuff) again!!!!

Lean patch!!!!!!!!

It's been like almost a month since I posted on blogger...It sounds strange that it would take so long to post a blog..give that, I have access to da net 24/7 at home and college..but this is something a hectic semester can do to anyone...I've just started and its like the last 7 months of my masters education...I dont know if I'll ever go to college again after this...but I'm enjoy and loathe every single moment of it...
The past couple of weeks taught me, that life is never a bed of roses...It's a mixture an aviyal( mallus would know wht this is..a typical south indian dish with practically any combination of vegetables)..the edge lies always in how you take you look at it....and how you react to it...
I found this wonderful verse some days back

Proverbs 15:13--- A glad heart makes a cheerful countenance, but by sorrow of heart the spirit is broken.

How true is it..I just praise God!! I just cant stop doing it..In spite of all my troubles and the hard work I'm forced to put in college..I know I'm preveleged than a whole lot of people..the good Lord has blessed I type this on to my PC my eyes are getting wet..I know, Lord you are touching me!!!
so my dear blogger buddies, I just cant wait to read all ur blogs and comments....I just hope my blog goes back to the good old times...
love you all

The Generation Gap!!!

yea!!!! today morning I had a good long chat with my Dad...He wanted me to go with him to supervise the maintence work of the apartments he owns and has given for rent..

This made me think a level further.I was thinking how different I was from my Grandpa or my appa. My grandpa came from our village and settled in this big a bureaucartic job and was happy with it..He saved every penny he earned and made a fortune by( middle class Indian standards for my father and his siblings) he built houses and gave them for rent..purchased property in prime locations...

My appa too did a little of that He built two houses bougth some appartments and we still live in my mother's modest ancestral property.He doesnt spent as much as me or my sis does..I must say even on is my mom..

But look at me!! I dont have a single penny from my job as savings and I love a carefree life and live on an allowance from my parents at their home..and even when I get a job I dont think...I'll live the way they did..I love them ..I know they do love me soo much back too..mabbe even more than I do love them....

I think its the consumerist mentatily of my generation that need to be curbed to an extend ..but not too much though..I think I need to know and keep the limits..

I thank God for blessing my family sooo very much and I should say I better start living a life thinking of the grace showerd by God on us...I pray HE gives me a wonderful life

God bless all you dear bloggers too

Greedy..Stupid... me?? What is wrong with me ??

Why do I want to get a job in Bangalore? Why do I want this year (acc) year to finish off fast ? Why do I keep thinking of wht I will be next year ? Why do I keep planning I year in advance ?Why do I want to move out of home ? Why do I hate going out with my parents? Why do I hate being ´alone´ ? Why do I crave food ?Why do I want to leave my parents ..the very people who gave birth to me..made me wht I am..the people who love me??Am I like the little birdie who just flies away from its nest!! The last I saw the mirror I was still human...Oh good Lord wht is the matter with me!!!!!

Is it cause I want to get all those goodies I ´want´? Is it cause I want freedom? Is this wht everybody goes through at some point? Do I think so? my Dad dint move out till he got married.. and my mom never moved out cause we live at her ancestral property...Is it cause I´m 23 and never been in a relationship?

Is this some new thing that the guys in my generation experience? Or am I plain greedy? Oh dear Bloggers!!!! you are my only hope....Please tell me I´m ok..Please tell me you still love me!!!

Boys are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. The girls don't want to reach for the good ones because they're afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead they just get the rotten apples that are on the ground, that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think that there is something wrong with them, when in reality, they are amazing. That is why we just have to be a little patient and the right girl, the one who takes a chance to find the good, right apple, will come someday...!!

Send this to all the boys who you know is at the top of the tree.So Guys if u are alone...this means that u r on be confident and wait for your time. CheerzZ!


This came as an IM long back..I think it was either Nidhy or Riza who sent this to me..two great girls I met in college..and Riza is getting married in months..I had this saved on my desktop, saw it today though..I might as well share it with my dear blogger and xanga guess it applies for rib apples



so there's an apple...I found so many pics of apples on da net..but this one seemed cool to my eyes..cause mabbe the apples I've ever seen and had looked like fast came in crates from North India(Kashmir or Himachal Pradesh) or from Europe..I live in tropical there it is..


I did pretty much nothing today....went to the swimming pool and it was closed for the all of us came back and I've been waiting this friend of mine Aju..he was supposed to show up by now....

Psalm 23

1 A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Internship Blues.......

My first day at internship wasnt very pleasant, but by God's grace I was a lot better at the end of the day. The good thing was even though circumstances were against me, He was with me, I dint loose my cool even once and everyone I met were good to me by God's grace.

I had 2 offers for internship and it so happened that all two wouldnt give me the required information.In addition to working for them, I am supposed to generate a report about the organisation by the end of the month, and all three wouldnt disclose their financial statements

I found this out around 12:00 noon from both the firms. The HR executive at the first company was a young pretty lady probably in her late 20's she me all other information other than Financial statements.

So I went to this other firm and the Vice-President HR too was kind he too obliged to help me and promised me even the audited financial statements.I was quite happy and called up my guide at college.To my surprise he wasnt happy, he said the second firm has just 100 coders working with then and its not a large company.

So finally by 3:00 pm I got permission at the State Bank of Travancore , the largest nationalised bank in my State.I badly wanted to work this month with a software firm as that was my area of interest.I firmly believe that God has better plans for me.Mabbe HE wanted me to get acquaited with some financial institution too after all I'm doin an MBA.

After which I came home and we practised for sunday's worship service at youth fellowship at my home.and now here I am tired and exhaused but thankful to God.I called my Dad almost 12 times today.He was very supportive everytime I had trouble today.I thank God for the wonderful gift my Dad is to me.

I actully started reading that book thinking it would help me at my intership,but now I find it intersting and I guess I'd take a paper on Software project management in the last semester.

I just want to share this verse with you:

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end" Ecclesiastics 3:11

Thanks to all my xanga buddies for keeping me in prayer and for your wishes they mean a lot to me.Thank you Lord for making me tough and tired but not disheartened. Praise you Lord for the good internship you've given me.Jesus you are awesome.

A lazy day..but tough one's approaching

Today was pretty much a free day..did very little work till now...I got my exam schedule for that postponed exam and its on August 12th.I got a call from the faculty co-ordinator for out internship, and I'm supposed to start tomorrow. I called the HR manager of the company and I shud be there tomorrow by 10.00 am  . I just hope things are not too difficult for  me there.
I just thought I'd read the book of  Jonah today and finish it today.I should be starting it by off I go for lunch; then shud apply for the RBI Officers test and then I would be here at home reading Jonah.
A friend of my read this quote in his devotional book and sent it to me
"Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers. Pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle. But you shall be a miracle. Every day you shall wonder at yourself, at the richness of life which has come to you by the grace of God. Not in doing what you like but in liking what you do is the secret of happiness."
--James M. Barrie
ah..would put down wht I find beautiful in Jonah at nite..

---------------10:37 pm

The amazing thing you find from the book is simple 'If God gives you directions and you dont follow, HE gives you free transportation to the place HE wants you to go.It would'nt be pleasant when God does that but HE will make you fullfill his will'

Looking at my life I find' I havent quite been obedient to God. Hope HE isnt harsh on me..I guess this holiday I got to read the book of Jonah was just to help me rewrite the wrongs in my life.Mabbe He's giving me another chace,hope I dont miss it.Praying for all my xanga buddies and others around..God be with you all,keep me in prayer too

My Grandma's note

Praise exams were fine today.I've got one more exam this semester and its over.The next and last paper is 'Human Resource Management' the university is yet to give us the got a couple of days to relax I guess...

I was arranaging my cupboard and found this note from my grandma.She wrote me this for my 23rd here it goes...

My dear Renji mon,

          Wish you a very very happy and blessed birthday.May our Lord shower all His abundant blessings upon you,throughout this year and the years to come.Keep your eyes on the Lord. He never takes His eyes off you.When we keep our eyes on Christ, obstacles become opportunities.To know ,to love and to live for God is the desire of a renewed sanctified soul.Pray well. He stands best who kneels most.Prayer is a child's helpless cry to the father's attentive ear. All who are born of God should develop a likeness to their father. Live like a flower by spreading fragrance.

          May our loving and living Lord bless you physically & spiritually. Praying for you fervently.

Yours affectionately,


I thank God for such a sweet grandma that he gave me.Oh God!! you really care for me.

July 2005 is gone...never to come back again..

Another month is fading away ,just a day more and it will be gone.Never to return again July 2005 will never come back to any of our lives,unless any of us acquires a time machine, well let's not rely on H G Wells such a thing does not exist, so the moments of glory,of joy,of love,of hate,of horror,of laziness,of mindless ennui, nothing will ever come back again.

I was thinking of the things I did last month,the good,bad and ugly ones,the time I used fruitfully and those which I just whiled away.It isnt a pleasant

July was not great to the world as a whole; 2 major Bomb blasts,real heavymonsoons in the Indian peninsula and more which mustve missed my eyes.

I just wanted to paint of picture of wht july was to me,for my countrymen and for the millions of fellow human beings world wide.Please dont take me for a sick negative moron.There were good things too which happened.but for now let's think on the what should be done to make this world a better place.I may put a few little good things which influenced me a lot in between.May God touch ur hearts as u go thru these posts.I know it takes a lot of patience to read such a long please bear with me

July 3: Live 8: End Africa's Misery; G-8 Urged - Leaders of the world's richest nations have been warned that if they do not reach an agreement on "decisive'' steps to fight poverty in Africa at their summit in Scotland next week they would be guilty of "betraying'' the people of Africa.
July 5: Nasa probe smashes into comet!!! this may help us know the orgins of the solar system
July 6:Terrorists attack Ayodhya- thank God it dint result in rioting
July 7 & 17 ||| Babbar Khalsa network unearthed - this may bring about new suspisions among India and Pakisthan; Praise God it was unearthed before much damage was done..
          London 2012
July 8:Terror attacks London
July 14:128 Killed in Pakisthan train mishap
July 16:9 Militants Killed - 9 Militants were killed while trying to infiltrate to Indian territory from Pakisthan in a 100 hr battle
July 17:India is not for sale - Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
July 20:Hurriath and pandits hold talks after 16 years - this is a huge step towards normalising the realions between Indian muslims and hindus in Indian Kashmir.
July 22: Panic in London
July 23: Innocent Brazilian man ; mistaken to be a suicide bomber shot dead in London
July 24: Blasts in Egypt kills 88
July 25: Security forces kill three children in Kashmir by mistake
July 26: Rioting in Gurgeon,India
July 27: 7 Killed in landslides in Munnar ,Kerala (my state)
July 28: Bombay High oil platform on fire 44 killed

July 29: IRA ends thirty years of armed struggle
July 30: Gen:Musharraf and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to meet in Washington  - this may be another step towards peace..
Here are reports of militant infiltrations and attacks in India just this month..there are 9 in 30 days ...that gives once every 3 days,this must mean that India is the worst affected country because of terrorism
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Pray for my country,pray that the extremists are not allowed to ingnite communal violence and hatred and destroy peace here. Most of these maybe important only from an India's point of view but they represent the suffering and the mindlessness of humanity as a whole..
Let's pray that the Lord will change the minds of our leaders and those with exteremist convictions and protect our lands and our lives.The word of God says 'knock and it shall open' let us knock ; as the SCC song goes Let us pray (2) every hour and every day..

I've got an exam on Monday,Maketing Management shud get back to my books,God bless you all, thanx for the patient reading

the subject was Finace Management and with my background of engineering it was really tough for me,I reached the exam hall on time and started my paper,I saw and there was this case study for which we had to do some calculations to get the result.I had my scientific calculator in my satchel but that was outside the exam hall, I looked around and the people around me had calculators.I thought it would be fine and I would just borrow it from someone.After a while I heard the examiner speaking harsly to a guy who wanted the borrow a calculater and he was like scolding him and not allowing him.I knew I was done for....I wouldnt be able to do it I thought...I decided to take the risk, belive in His grace and I started praying..Lord,I'm going to ask the invigilator permission to get the calculator from the outside...I finished praying and when he came near stood up and asked him with little apprehension in my heart..'Sir, my calculator is outside by the door,can I get it please' to my amazement he was not the rude harsh man I heard before ...he was changed ...he allowed me with a the lions closing theirs jaws before the angel of the Lord in Daniel he dint even open his mouth but was really pleasant ...and after that he allowed the other guy to borrow also...It must be against the univ rules to send someone outside during an exam or allow communication among eachother..but Thank God ...He allowed me and by His grace I belive I did well in the test...Thankyou JESUS...YOU are my my uncertainties , weaknesses ,apprehensions and fears you are with me Lord .I just want to tell you all this:
'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and He will carry you through'Proverbs
I've got my next test on monday...pray for me...Its Marketing Management..that book I started reading just covers one 5 to go..pray for our youth service on Sunday..hope he touches someone thru us...we are leading this time(its like the whole group is divided into 4 groups which gets shuffled every year..and each week one of the group leads) its been sometime since we were serious of the worship service...please pray that we are able to give our all to the Lord..

Psalm 127:1&2

The house..

Verse of the Day:
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
Psalm 127:1

This is an interesting article I read today on rediff

Friends again!!

Posted by Picasa

It's been a love-hate relationship all the way...
ignoring the Americans during the Cold war...then the American's pampering of Pakistan..ah now it seems both the countries have had enough....
but there are things we should keep in mind...

1.Pakisthan, even though being ruled by an illegitimate govt(military dictatorship cant be legitimate or democratic) is being given most favoured nation status as a non-NATO ally which brings it in par with Israel which is disturbing...given the fact that they have been supporting terrorists who infiltrate into the Indian side of Kashmir.
2.The US keeps arming Pakisthan with sophiticated weapons systems and platforms including the F-16 and PC-3 Orion aircrafts...
3.And they(INDIA and USA) have decided to work together in multi-national peace keeping missions but it's not given clearly under the United nations..this should make compications for Mr.Singh once he is back in India because most Indians including yours truely sees the UN as the legitimate peace keeping authority.
There are brighter things too.... the good news is that the US has lifted sanctions against us imposed on the wake of the Pokran Nuclear tests..which could be benificial for the civilian use of Nuclear energy in India.Above all the US administration is a 'God fearing'one.(please dont take me for a zionist..I may have somethings in common with them but..)
Hope this turns out to be benificial for both the countries....
I got this online while American citizen's views of wht is going on between India and the US...
Admiral Quixote
I guess he is thinking the same way as I do for the most part..

and now to some movies and history...this is the poster of the movie that isnt released yet "Mangal Pandey" It is about India's first war of Independence (also know as Sepoy mutiny to the British)...

so that is it too long...should be getting back to my books
got to read a lot for exams..pray for me please...and hey one more thing
I am not a Pakisthan hater....I love the people of Pakisthan infact I believe that being an Indian makes all Pakisthani's my brothers...
God bless them
God bless us and the Americans too...

ah...and here are the results for a quiz a took on the net
do you think I am like

Caring soul
Your soul is caring.
Other people are your concern, even if you
don't know them. If you see a person trip you
worry is he is okay. You put your loved ones
first and you're very mature. When someones
sick you're nurturing and always try to help
family and friends when failure strikes them.
You can be called the motherly one, if you are
in a group of people, which doesn't have to be
bad. Love is something that's already in you
and you have a lot to give whether you believe
it or not. Your friends probably love you very
much and come to when they need help since
you're reliable. People can feel secure with
you and generally like you.

How is your soul?(pics)

to hell with terrorism

I love my country.......
Posted by Picasa

I deeply condemn the July 7 terrorist attacks in London and the failed fidayeen operation in Ayodhya on July 5.My heart goes with the grieving familes of terror victims in India and in Britain.Terrorism is a global menace which should be defeated by the civilised world.It does not gain authenticity even if a country promotes it.As men, we should have the willingness to accept the fact that anyone who spreads terror is a terrorist threat be it a Christian,Muslim,Hindu,Jew or Sikh inspite of our religious affiliations and beliefs.

Terrorism is weapon of the weak.It should be treated an abomination and not be glorified.

This is an article written by Mr.KPS Gill a retired Indian Police Service officer,
this is a must read of anyone who is interested in Administration and Governance.
The article gives many reasons for the people,the administration and the media in London to be proud of and many for those in India to check themselves and learn from their mistakes.
A study in Contrast- KPS Gill

I salute the Indian para militaray forces who foiled the attack on Ayodhya a disputed site(between Indian Muslims and Hindus) that is held by the govt of India.
May the Lord, give them more strength to defeat the forces trying to break the peace in my country.

Jai Hind

The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Psalm 92:12

Cedar of Lebenon
Posted by Picasa
I guess this Psalm is teaching me a lot...Look at how much the Lord will reward you for your claim the blessing we should be righteous,look at the tree in the picture..see how lush it is...look at the tree trunk and look how beautiful it looks...the Lord promises a lot for our righeousness

Another verse that worked wonders in me when I was in undergraduate class was

Psalm 37:4

Delight thyself also in the LORD: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

All these verses speaks of the importance of fullfilling our duty if God were to bless us yes,God does not need our help to bless us..but to demand a blessing from HIM we need to be righteous....

I wanted to put a photo of the Palm tree too..but there are about 800 species of the the palm tree..but one thing is certain most of these are single trunk trees which grow to be really tall...the coconut tree common in my state is an example and the palm tree in the middle east too are tall and stout...there are a lot of info about the palm tree in these sites

The Right Stuff

The Shuttle
Posted by Picasa

NASA Space Shuttles have always been a matter of intrigue and imagnination...even after the the tragic end of Columbia....
I read an article a few days back on the software that takes the incredible machine to orbit and the lives of the men and women who sounds a lot different from the Hip happening software coders!!!no offence meant here...
the article says that almost all coding groups expect Lockheed martin's shuttle software group.....make a lot of errors which are found after delivering the s/w product...
and the reliability of Lockheed's software as 99.9%...
the article makes interesting reading if u r in the industry or an aspirant or someone who wants to

read the article here....
they write the right stuff

Thinking of the God who gave man the intellect to attain such capabilities
left me in awe of the fullness of God's wisdom and glory

No Doubt

His eye is on the sparrow
Posted by Hello
Its been 9 days since I posted a blog
some sweet 'n sour things happened to me..
I was down with fever for a few days
I got my first sem results and I lost a paper though God helped me to clear all the 7 outta 8..the paper I lost I've sent for revaluation and Scrutiny GOD willing will
clear that too...
I was sitting at home one day and was kinda down
it was then my good fren Einstein gave me this CD by petra
No Doubt..the lyrics touched and healed me
Praise God..the video is available free at their site
the link is here
No Doubt video
you could also get more wonderful audio and videos of their songs
and their awesome testimonies
here John Schlitt
this actually is the homepage of the lead singer
the lyrics are here
There are times when you feel like you can't go on
There are times when you feel like giving in
And there are times when you feel like you can't try anymore
There are times of trouble in believing
This test of your faith will last
As long as it takes to pass
Till you have no more doubt you'll endure
And your faith will emerge true and pure


No doubt it'll be alright
With God it'll work together for good
No doubt in the end it will be understood
No doubt it'll all work out
With faith He can move any mountain for us
No doubt in the power of Jesus
And after all is done we find out
All we really need to have is no doubt

There's a time to take a reckless leap of faith
There's a time to be cautious and to wait
And there's a way of learning from the past
That this time of trouble won't last
And sometimes we want to think we know
The ways He will choose to make us grow
But it's never the way of our choosing
And we can't always see what He's using


There will be winters in the seasons of our soul
With a cold and bitter wind that chills our lives
But our faith can be building a fire
That will warm us till springtime arrives

Mathew 10
I was comforted much by these verses Mathew 10:29-31
It talks about the tiny bird sparrow
It is just a negligble creature...something people would ignore inspite of their beauty...but God cares for it
the verse really touched me ...How much more will HE take care of me
so no matter wht ever happens dont forget that GOD is in control
I came across this site that has a bible study on the sparrow
Bible study on the Sparrow
I'm taking my second semester exams now
one over 7 more to go
got one the day after tomm..shud be reading something
God bless

These are the lyrics to the song "Whatever" by SCC
I made a list wrote down from a to z
All the ways I thought that you could best use me
Told all my strengths and my abilities
I formed a plan it seemed to make good sense
I laid it out for you so sure you’d be convinced
I made my case presented my defense
But then I read the letter that you sent me
It said that all you really want from me is just

Whatever whatever you say
Whatever I will obey
Whatever lord have your way
’cause you are my God whatever

So strike a match set fire to the list
Of all my good intentions all my preconceived ideas
I want to do your will no matter what it is
Give me faith to follow where you lead me
Oh lord give me the courage and the strength to do

I am not my own
I am yours and yours alone
You have bought me with your blood
Lord to you and you alone do I belong
And so whatever
The song goes on to say that whatever our talents are
God chose us just by His grace and not by what we are
wht a statement of faith!!!!!

Roy Carroll leaves Old Trafford

Roy Carroll
Posted by Hello
Roy Carroll has been with Man United since 2001
but the Northern Ireland International could
contribute only by the end of 2002 03 season when
the No 1 keeper Fabian Barthez picked up an injury
Roy stepped up to complete the ten appearances needed for
the first Premiership medal of his career.
Roy's new contract with West Ham looks good for him...
Any way "One man's loss is another man's gain"
Good Luck Tim Howard...

The Horn of the Wild Ox

the horn of the wild ox
Posted by Hello

I was reading Psalm 92 in my malayalam (my mother tongue) BIBLE today and I came across this wonderful verse Psalm 92:10"You have exalted my horn [a] like that of a wild ox;fine oils have been poured upon me."

Look at that animal in the pic thats an Indian wild ox called as gaur...
and look at those horns they really are symbols of King David talks about how much God blesses the righteous before the evil ones..and thats great encouragement...this man David was truely a man after God's own enviable certificate indeed!!!

I had a doubt as the KJV showed the animal as "Unicorn"...
but all other version put it as "wild ox" even the malayalam Bible put it as
"kaattu potthu" which means wild ox ..... the malayalam Bible was translated in the early centuries from the original texts.

I always feel sad for the people of our land ....we heard the Word even before Europeans did ....we heard the good news earlier but still millions of our dear brothers havent heard it yet....

I am deviating from wht I wanted to people dont worry when evil people around you keep holding to him.....God has a better plan for you ..he will never let you down...and like the strong wild ox u'll be unbeatable..

Read the whole Psalm here Psalm 92

Posted by Hello

This is for the queen of arts @ abbey u expressed interest in my state..
Kerala is the south western state in India it has the Arabian Sea to its west..the Eastern Ghats to the east and the Indian Ocean to its south..the language is malayalam and people are called malayalees(Indians first)

we have a great christian heritage with 35% of the present population being Christians....In AD 53 St.Thomas is said to have landed here and evangelised his first converts......and so one can find a lot of churches centuries old on our lands

the western side is totted with back water lakes along the shore which add colour to the beauty of my land...we have a population whose political awareness is quite high
and the literacy rate in our state is 100%
and our economy is sustained mostly by foreign money as a lot of our people work abroad in the west mostly in North America and in the middle east

we have a synagogue and a small jewish population as most of the
jews have left the shores of kerala for the land flowing with milk and honey

Six Pence none the richer

Six pence none the richer....a band I loved...
Posted by Hello

this band is one of my fav christian bands...though they had some billboard hits
and MTV songs too they showed their character even when they did secular shows and music

here is an extact from their bio on the net
With each encounter, they patiently tell once more the story that Nash recounted in her appearance on Letterman in August, 1999.  Although Nash has never completely overcome her youthful nervousness on stage, she bravely walked over to a chair on the "Late Show" stage following her band's performance.
After asking where the band's name came from, Letterman teasingly interrupted Nash to ask if he could stop by her hotel room after the show.  Nash's blank silence stopped him cold, chastening him into an apology.  With that, she proceeded to finish her story.
"It comes from a book by C. S. Lewis...called Mere Christianity," she resumed.  "A little boy asks his father if he can get a sixpence - a very small amount of English currency - to go and get a gift for his father. The father gladly accepts the gift and he's really happy with it, but he also realizes that he's not any richer for the transaction..."
"He bought his own gift," Letterman responded.  "That's right," Nash continued. "C.S. Lewis was comparing that to his belief that God has given him, and us, the gifts that we possess, and to serve Him the way we should, we should do it humbly...realizing how we got the gifts in the first place."
"Well, that's beautiful," Letterman stammered, with uncharacteristic earnestness.  "If we could just keep that little sliver of enlightenment with us, things would be so much better..."
isnt that reassuring and isnt that wonderful....
God bless them

Six Pence none the richer

"Trust in the lord" is one of my fav songs of Spntr
and so is Kiss me

here are the words to Trust in the lord based on Proverbs 3 : 5-7

Trust in the Lord with all your heart
Lean not on your own understanding
In all of your ways acknowledge Him
And He will make you paths straight
Don't worry about tomorrow
He's got it under control
Just trust in the Lord with all of your heart
And He will carry you through

Lord, sometimes it gets so tough
To keep my eyes on You
When thinks are going rough
But when I turn my eyes up to the sky
And I hear Your voice it says to me

So child do not be weary with the troubles
Of this world I have overcome

This day 5 years ago my grand mother died..and I'm not wrong she was the most influencial woman rather person in my life....she mothered me all those years when my mother was working....Thank God for such a wonderful person as her....she was an exceptional person for her times...was a staff nurse educated in good english schools at a time when women were barely educated in my part of the world....was strong willed and loved by frieds and others....she was truly wonderful
Sometimes we dont understand why certain people are there in our lives but its only after a real long time that u understand....she always wanted me to be a wonderful person...and I hope I evolve to be one at least to my standards...

Christ the Solid Rock

Got this song today morning...cant stop listening to fact
even learnt to play it on the guitar...
its by 4Him
Check out the lyrics

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

On Christ, the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace.
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood.
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh may I then in Him be found.
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.


Today morning during my QT I read about Daniel...and how faithful he was to God even when he was in King
Nebudcadnezzer's was wonderful to see how God blessed him with health and wisdom for clinging on to him

Lord help me to keep myself pure like Daniel did!!!
Read the first chapter of Daniel in the Bible here Daniel !{v}
