“Always in life an idea starts small, it is only a sapling idea, but the vines will come and they will try to choke your idea so it cannot grow and it will die and you will never know you had a big idea, an idea so big it could have grown thirty meters through the dark canopy of leaves and touched the face of the sky.’ He looked at me and continued. ‘The vines are people who are afraid of originality, of new thinking. Most people you encounter will be vines; when you are a young plant they are very dangerous.’ His piercing blue eyes looked into mine.’ Always listen to yourself, Peekay. It is better to be wrong than simply to follow convention. If you are wrong, no matter, you have learned something and you grow stronger. If you are right, you have taken another step toward a fulfilling life.” – Bryce Courtenay, The Power of OneContinue reading →
I found this assertion interesting. Something to ponder on…..!!!!

Always it is man who wants to make heaven and hell. God is too busy training the bees to make honey and every morning opening up all the new flowers for business.” ― Bryce Courtenay, The Power of OneContinue reading →
We may be facing many new challenges everyday, but have we ever reminded ourselves that if the Lord had delivered us before, He can and will deliver us once more?

It is good to recognize that there is so much to be thankful for. So much to look back and be grateful for. Even, there are bits and pieces, all of the little things that seem insignificant which we often forget to thank God for. But when we look back, we realize that we were saved only by His divine touch.
Let’s live a lifestyle that celebrates our appreciation even for the smallest grace of waking up and breathing sweet air into our lungs.
