a reflection on good friday…

Got an SMS (Short Message Service) on my mobile yesterday from a friend of mine telling me that someone we know passed on due to Cancer. Whenever I hear of such news , it really drives me again to the point where I ask myself…What is the purpose on my life here on earth ? Do you?

And everything this happens, someone will tell me, LIFE IS SHORT! To me,  Life is not measured by the length of time but by what you do with the time you are give. I am not sure if you agree…but at least this is how i sees it.

So wake up today and smell the roses! start to appreciate and love the people around you (doesn’t matter if they are lovable to you now). Someday when you realised that they are….they will probably be not around you anymore.

I am thankful for all the people around me. Be it nice or nasty people…they shape my life in some ways or others. I also remembered a friend telling me…I don’t want to live a boring life! Good or Bad Life…it is still better then living a boring life! Then i begin to understand that it is the experience we go through that shape us….not our ideals!

Are you thankful for the people in your life? What are you going today that makes a difference in your life and others?

Paradox Of Life

History shows that the value of life decreases and the quality of existence diminishes when a generation loses its sense of destiny and purpose. A quick glance at our current world exposes a sad picture that demands our attention. We preserve nature, for example, but kill babies. We build solid houses but cannot construct lasting homes. We are smarter but not wiser, bigger but not stronger. We know more and understand less, and we live longer but enjoy life less fully. We write more books but fail to take the time to read them. We go faster but get nowhere, conquer space but cannot conquer our habits, protect whales but abuse our children, go to the moon but wander farther from home, and flirt with fantasy in order to avoid reality.

In Pursuit of Purpose In Pursuit of Purpose

By Myles Munroe / Destiny Image

Your fulfillment in life is dependent on your becoming and doing what you were born to be and do. For without purpose, life has no heat. Munroe has fashioned a compass that can focus you on the path toward fulfillment while providing the answer to the question, “Why am I here?”
