Life Taught Me !

Life taught me to be honest with myself first,

Before trying to be honest with the others.

Life taught me to understand myself first ,

Before asking the others to understand me.

Life taught me not to regret things happened in the past,

But to look forward with hope for better days.

Hope is like a bright lamp in my life.

Hope accompanies me where ever l go.

Life taught me not to criticize the others ,

Before l look in the mirror to myself , more than once.

Life taught me no to judge anyone so l won’t be judged.

Does Time Change People ?

Houses becoming larger and families becoming smaller.

Medical and science are advancing but health becoming worser .

We reached the space and landed on the moon, but we do not

Know who are our next door neighbors, The many do not call anymore.

Many people becoming millionaires ,and peace of min is lessening .

Technology and progress are keeping people occupied, The human feelings

, Kindness, compassion , mercy and forgiveness are shrinking fast today.

Our human values are becoming endangered species ,probably will disappear .

Most friendships becoming worthless , the many look only for their interests.

Homes used to be simple but hearts were of gold, today homes are of gold ,

But the hearts becoming like stones.

Wishing everyone of you dear friends a happy and glorious new year 2023.

My Grandmother Told Me !

Do not boast that you have a great job,

Infront of an unemployed person.

Do not talk about your money ,

Infront of a poor person.

Don’t talk about your excellent health ,

Infront of a sick person.

Don’t talk about your freedom ,

Infront of a prisoned person.

Before talking think about your words.

You might hurt peoples feelings.

Be careful so you won’t regret it later.

(( If Talking weighs with silver , silence weighs with gold ))

Self Respect !

Do not make anyone to care about you.

Do not impose yourself on people to ask about you.

The one who loves you will look for you ,

As if he is looking for a precious thing he has lost.

Caring about others is a virtue no one can act it or fabricate it.

So do not force people to give you attention and care about you.

You will be like the one who is watering a fake tree and expecting ,

The tree will give him fruits.

The Beauty Of God And A Friend .

Not everything that glitters is Gold.

Not everyone who agrees withn us is a friend.

Not everyone who says l love is sincer and right.

Not everyone who prays will get what he wants.

The beauty of Gold is in its value and purity .

The beauty of a friend is in his truthfulnees .

The beauty of the one who loves is his passion.

The beauty of all the above in the believers kind heart.

Seek what is from above , not from down below.

As much you love as much you get love in return,.

The Beauty Of The Mind.

A sane person is the one who knows .,

When to talk , where to talk and with whom to talk.

And all this beauty is in Christ Jesus.
