Beautiful endings

Nothing is eternal except the Divine Creator. We human beings all have a beginning and an end, and best make all the best of the time when we are here alive on this planet.

We also best enjoy the good things of this earth and appreciate those around us who are willing to share their love with us.

Sliver of Darkness

Enjoy things while they last, because everything ends. Death and the nature of humans promise just that, endings. My grandfather lost my grandmother at old age, he had three wives, but he wept for losing one.

Still, that was a beautiful ending. I love beautiful endings. Pray for a beautiful ending, not eternity, because that doesn’t exist.

Pesach not only an evocation of the divine redemption

Pesach is not only an evocation of the divine redemption that occurred more than 3000 years ago,
but also celebrates our commitment to work to bring us closer
to that utopia of harmony and fraternity among all that Adonai has chosen.
(Many will be called few the chosen).

            Need to learn to enjoy the jam in life


            Quote of the day

            “We need to learn to enjoy the jam in life, the simple things.
            We need to not let the bad stuff define us.
            The happily ever after is a journey, not an arrival.
            But we will get there with patience and love.”

            – Richard Ratcliffe reflects realistically on his wife Nazanin’s return to the UK after six years in prison in Iran.

            Sending Love to the people of Ukraine

            Kyrian Lyndon

            “Man is the only animal that deals in that atrocity of atrocities, War. He is the only one that gathers his brethren about him and goes forth in cold blood and calm pulse to exterminate his kind. He is the only animal that for sordid wages will march out…and help to slaughter strangers of his own species who have done him no harm and with whom he has no quarrel. ..And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood off his hands and works for ‘the universal brotherhood of man’–with his mouth.” Mark Twain – What Is Man?

            Since its first season, I have been a fan of the television showDancing with the Stars, so I am pretty familiar with Ukrainian-American pro-dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy, who appeared in many earlier seasons and recently as a judge. When the Russian invasion began, Maksim was a judge on the Ukrainian…

            Peace To The World

            There is no reason to keep strangling life and wounding this earth.

            Each of us plays an important role in spreading the message of peace and love.
            We should show others there are ways to get to that better place where all of us can live in unison and peace.

            (Think about um, the generations
            And ah, say we want to make it a better place for our children
            And our children’s children so that they, they
            They, they know it’s a better world for them
            And think if they can make it a better place)
            There’s a place in your heart
            And I know that it is love
            And this place it was brighter than tomorrow
            And if you really try
            You’ll find there’s no need to cry
            In this place you’ll feel there’s no hurt or sorrow
            There are ways to get there
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a little space
            Make a better place
            Heal the world
            Make it a better place
            For you and for me, and the entire human race
            There are people dying
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a better place for you and for me
            If you want to know why
            There’s love that cannot lie
            Love is strong
            It only cares of joyful giving
            If we try we shall see
            In this bliss we cannot feel
            Fear of dread, we stop existing and start living
            Then it feels that always
            Love’s enough for us growing
            Make a better world
            So make a better world
            Heal the world
            Make it a better place
            For you and for me, and the entire human race
            There are people dying
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a better place for you and for me
            And the dream we were conceived in will reveal a joyful face
            And the world we once believed in will shine again in grace
            Then why do we keep strangling life
            Wound this earth, crucify its soul?
            Though it’s plain to see, this world is heavenly
            Be god’s glow
            We could fly so high
            Let our spirits never die
            In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
            Create a world with no fear
            Together we cry happy tears
            See the nations turn their swords into plowshares
            We could really get there
            If you cared enough for the living
            Make a little space
            To make a better place
            Heal the world
            Make it a better place
            For you and for me, and the entire human race
            There are people dying
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a better place for you and for me
            Heal the world
            Make it a better place
            For you and for me, and the entire human race
            There are people dying
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a better place for you and for me
            Heal the world (heal the world)
            Make it a better place
            For you and for me, and the entire human race
            There are people dying
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a better place for you and for me
            There are people dying
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a better place for you and for me
            There are people dying
            If you care enough for the living
            Make a better place for you and for me
            You and for me (for a better place)
            You and for me (make a better place)
            You and for me (make a better place)
            You and for me (heal the world we live in)
            You and for me (save it for our children)
            You and for me (heal the world we live in)
            You and for me (save it for our children)
            You and for me (heal the world we live in)
            You and for me (save it for our children)
            You and for me (heal the world we live in)
            You and for me (save it for our children)

            Share Your Light

            Instead of writing a poem today, I ask all of you to take 2 minutes – only 2 minutes – to look within, and focus on a peaceful and loving world – the world we all want to live in. Hold this image in your heart and create a ball of love and light within you. Project it onto the vulnerable areas and people involved to bring healing where it is needed the most. Please, don’t forget that the person who caused the chaos may need the most healing.

            DON’T listen to them!!

            Allah, Jehovah our God, Who is the Almighty, Who takes away our fear, sorrows and gives us hope in better times, is the One to Whom we look up and praise for all the wonders we might enjoy around us.

            There are lots of people who try to get us away from our faith in God. We should be careful not to fall into their trap. The Scriptures warn of such false teachers, deceivers and tricksters who might lead us astray.

            Try to get it!

            They say be ready for the disappointment from any one at any time..

            And I say ” Be ready for happiness.. Joy.. Money.. Health… Good company.. ”

            That’s what I think of God..

            What do you think of God???…

            Dear 2021,

            So many might be cross with 2021 and by taking on such a negative view on that Corona year miss out on all the blessings they had that year.

            It is true many of us would have wished it would have gone differently, but no matter what came over this world, a naughty virus, limiting us in many ways, it also created many opportunities.

            Let it be known, in a few years time everything of 2019, 2020 and 2021 might be forgotten as in a sealed book somewhere up high in the bookcase or in a bookshelf in a dark corner.

            The good things of it we carry with us with pleasure and hope soon to be relieved from that virus, but in the meantime, we shall not let us bring down.

            Before I start I have to thank Deepthy from Random Specific Thoughts for coming up with this idea and then letting me borrow it for a post. You should definitely check out her post here.

            Dear 2021,

            The things we experience in life change us, they shape our understanding and the way we view the world. And so, for me 2021, a year that can only be described as a rollercoaster of a year, wasn’t all bad.

            Of course at times I wished things were different, and, to be perfectly honest, I still do. However that isn’t your fault 2021, it’s not the actual events that cause these feelings, it’s my perception and the experience I have of them. This may seem like an odd thing to say, especially taking in to consideration the pandemic and all its effects, but…
