Judge Gently

I am browsing some old emails that I need right now for an insurance company. I found these nice words which I believed are worthy to share. Just a reminder, don't judge somebody, we have to look first to ourselves. His or her situation might be happening to us right now. Cheers and have a blessed day to all!

Judge Gently
=============

Pray, don't find fault with the man who limps
Or stumbles along the road.
Unless you have worn the shoes he wears
Or struggled beneath his load.

There may be tacks in his shoes that hurt
Though hidden away from view.
Or the burden he bears placed on your back
Might cause you to stumble too.

Don't sneer at the man who's down today
Unless you have felt the blow
That caused his fall or felt the shame
That only the fallen know.

You may be strong but still the blows
That was his if dealt to you
In the selfsame way, at the selfsame time
Might cause you to stagger too.

Don't be too harsh with the man who sins
Or pelt him with word or stone
Unless you are sure - yea, doubly sure
That you have no sins of your own.

For you know, perhaps,
If the tempter's voice should whisper as soft to you
As it did to him when he went astray
It might cause you to falter too.

September is Finally Here!

Hello everyone! I hope everybody is warmly welcoming the first day of September . I already start to feel the cold breeze outside when I stay some minutes watering our garden. I also wish that everyone will have a great start of the month. I am sharing some inspiring words below which was forwarded by mountainwings.com in my inbox. I just can't afford to delete it without sharing it to all of you! take care guys and stay happy all the time! I'm always trying!

Green on This Side

What if it's not greener on the other side?
Maybe past the fence it's still the same ride.

What if the ultimate joy always exists in the now?
Maybe every moment should take it's own bow.

What if the apex of happiness was always just here?
Maybe we don't have to guide, we don't have to steer.

What if that's why children always laugh so?
Maybe they're able to just let go.

What if they know happiness is not a thing to be achieved?
Maybe they can feel that being open to it, is all that we need.

What if we've become so "wise" we've forgotten that realization?
Maybe once in a while we should give our brains a vacation.

What if happiness is more about our hearts and our souls?
Maybe we can be happy with the now and still have goals.

What if the grass isn't greener, what would you do?
Maybe it's time to let happiness be the thing that fills you.

Love Vs. Marriage

Roses in our garden..love 'em!!

Love Vs. Marriage

Love is holding hands in the street.
Marriage is holding arguments in the street.
Love is dinner for 2 in your favorite restaurant.
Marriage is a take home packet.

Love is cuddling on a sofa.
Marriage is one of them sleeping on a sofa.
Love is talking about having children.
Marriage is talking about getting away from children.

Love is going to bed early.
Marriage is going to sleep early.
Love is a romantic drive.
Marriage is arrive on tops curvy tarmac .

Love is losing your appetite.
Marriage is losing your figure.
Love is sweet nothing in the ear.
Marriage is sweet nothing in the bank.

Tv has no place in love.
Marriage is a fight for remote control.
Love is 1 drink and 2 straws.
Marriage is "Don't you think you've had enough!".

Conclusion: "Love is blind, Marriage is an eye opener!"

p.s. I got this from one of my friend in friendster!! thanks for sharing Marlene!! see yah around

Life!!

Below is a very nice poem about Life. The author was unknown and was adapted by Bertrand Russell. Life is really worth living poor. I also don't know how many people really have emphasis about the real meaning of life. Do you have the same feeling with the author??? I know I am not perfect but I believed I also have the same feeling with the author. At least I am trying especially for my family and friends!!

Three passions have governed my life:
The longings for love, the search for knowledge,
And unbearable pity for the suffering of [humankind].

Love brings ecstasy and relieves loneliness.
In the union of love I have seen
In a mystic miniature the prefiguring vision
Of the heavens that saints and poets have imagined.

With equal passion I have sought knowledge.
I have wished to understand the hearts of [people].
I have wished to know why the stars shine.

Love and knowledge led upwards to the heavens,
But always pity brought me back to earth;
Cries of pain reverberated in my heart
Of children in famine, of victims tortured
And of old people left helpless.
I long to alleviate the evil, but I cannot,
And I too suffer.

This has been my life; I found it worth living.

A Beautiful Poem

I got a subscribed mail in my inbox.. Before I delete it I just want to share it to all of you!! I myself wrote poems too..hopefully I can share it with you next time!!

Read this, it is beautiful!!

You Can

If you can't feed a billion people,
then feed just one.

If you can't hire twenty million unemployed,
then hire just one.

If you can't support an army,
then pray for one soldier.

If you can't cure disease,
then visit one person in the hospital.
One smile provides healing.

If you can't save the world,
then improve your community;
and if you can't improve your community,
then help your next-door neighbor.

We can't save the world,
but we can save those within hugging distance.

Don't give up.
Don't become overwhelmed.
We are responsible only for the people in our breathing space.

Charity begins with the next person you see.
Charity begins with just you and just me.
If everyone on earth felt this way, what kind of planet would it be?
