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 it..how 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 me..as 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

Welcome Back!!!!

Yes life indeed is an aviyal. You got to take what you get :)

Thank you for that verse. I have been struggling with the fact that I am always tired, always working hard, so I use it as an excuse to not be cheerful. I will remember to have a happy heart and I pray God will change my countenance to a cheerful one. Blessings!

Hi Thomas...

A sheer coincidence that I got to see your profile on hi5, which led me to this blog. This is not a comment on your post, but catching up on old times. You know from your school days. We used to play a lot together. How is Rahul? Any news from his side? Do you still live near that hospital?

Still puzzled???

Check out my blog

Hey Thomas! You're among the living! So glad to know you are ABLE to work so hard. Hang in there, your blogging buddies are praying for you and India. Don't forget to pray for HBI, Brother M.A. Thomas, and Bobby Gupta. God knows who they are and knows of their love for Him and the dear ones of India.How much schooling do you have left?

Damian said...

Hi Thomas!

I just came on to your blog and found it refreshing how much gratitude you have for the Lord. It seems you have a personal relationship with Him, which is very hard to find these days. Stay focused on God and let Him help you with whatever troubles or obstacles you are going through.

Give you worries and cares to God....He knows what to do with them better than we do.

"We are pressed on every side by troubles, but we are not crushed and broken. We are perplexed, but we don't give up and quit. We are hunted down, but God never abandons us. We get knocked down, but we get up again and keep going. Through suffering, these bodies of ours constantly share in the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus may also be seen in our bodies." ~2 Corinthians 4:8-10

That scripture gives me comfort when I'm full of stress and anxiety or going through obstacles of my own.

My prayers are with you... Great blog! Please keep writing.
