The Daily Prompt – Neighbours!

There are people who make you happy and give you a reason to laugh, smile or talk about them, in a good way. I have a good neighbour who has a pulsating aura of positivity. She always strives to put a smile on people’s faces.

Always, she writes notes on the communication board to anyone who cares to read them. Well, you cannot afford to miss her posts. I always look forward to it.

She would often write:

Have a great day!

Have a nice weekend!

Have a productive week!

And during the Yuletide – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Et al.

She is so sweet that today she wrote something again which I loved and wanted to share with you.

She wrote: Continue reading

Volunteer To Help…!

Deep within me

Deep within my soul

I hold a passion that no one else understands

A passion to render help

To people who did not solicit for it

And to some others in dire need of me

*****************

How happy I feel to see the smiles on their faces

When I listen to their pathetic stories

The hurt and pain they have been through

And the lonesome feeling of separation

From families and loved ones

A moment with these Refugees

Became a time well spent

*******************

I volunteer to help anyone

As my inner spirit leads me

And it did lead me to the elderly in my city

To be in their midst once every week

Together with other volunteers

We cook and eat together

Every visit to the elderly people’s home

Leaves me fulfilled and happier

******************

To listen to them as they share their pains and sorrows

To go on occasional walk with them

To visit and keep them company

To cheer them up

Became a craving

A strong desire

******************

Thus I create the time

‘Cos I love it so

To share a moment with them

To talk and listen to their heartaches

Became a source of joy to me

Became a passion I cherish

Perhaps, it’s innate in me

To help lessen the burden of others

So I pledged to give my time

For the sake of love

For humanity

To render help without a fee

To volunteer

Without any charges

It Takes You…

One harsh reality of life that my experience has taught me in this journey is that you are responsible for your life and what happens to you. You are responsible for your destiny and how it turns out. That is the truest truth. I discovered this truth a bit late and I will not fail to shout it out loud so that people will stop looking up to others to help them decide their fate in life. You owe yourself that job. So get to work and work yourself to the top. Continue reading

Devotional Nuggets – #80

What is that thing you are trusting God for?
What is that thing eating your heart away?
What is that thing that steals your joy?
What are you wishing for that you so need in your life?
Hey, tell it to HIM. Say that prayer one more time and trust that he is able.

Yes, HE is still in the business of listening to our supplications.
HE will hear you as you speak to HIM today.

Go on, talk to God again!

The Daily Prompt – Sympathy!

I remembered when I lost my father some years ago, expressions of sympathy flooded from across the globe by people who are connected to my family one way or another. Friends and family members and even strangers who heard about his demise wanted to reach out to us with their compassion. Some, who have experienced the death of a loved one empathized with us and shared their experiences. Continue reading
