It is always a joy to look back and be awestruck at how wonderfully God has carried you through the years.
Looking back to this exact moment one year before, I was probably sitting up on my bed wondering why I am in this new city, all by myself. I did not even have a confirmed job letter or a joining date. I was hatching escape plans in case I had to leave the city the very next day.
Little did I know, God was answering my forgotten prayer:
Lord, place me at the right place, at the right time
And He answered it so beautifully 🙂
He placed me in an amazing community of love, concern and fellowship.
When it was too hard to carry on and I just wanted to give up, I am glad that God had placed me here with these amazing people who held me up and supported me with prayers and hugs 🙂
Once again, He has proved that He is forever FAITHFUL and His plans are always the BEST!
My God never gave up on me; never left me halfway. Yes, He is faithful!
In my joy, He laughed with me. In my lonely hours, He held me close. In the darkest nights, He was still there. He never left!!
We have all been there. Waiting for the round figures. The tens, hundreds, five hundreds and such.
But doesn’t the 99, 499 or 997 matter too?
This post thread has been in my mind for a long time and what time is better than when I am awaiting 500 followers?
We all love the milestones and they do matter.
But sometimes as we wait to celebrate the 50th birthday, we forget to live the 49th year.
This is another form of destination happiness: A very dangerous technique of postponing happiness.
Let us not fall prey to that. Instead can we learn to value each day, each moment, each follower; basically everything that comes in between the milestones. Coz if you don’t cross the 77, 84 or 97, you will definitely not reach 100.
Let us also learn to appreciate the back ground workers, the skeletal teams and people who maintain our world. They might not be the ones who gets credit for the end result. But they were all part of the process.
DO NOT overlook the corner stones as you rush from one milestone to the next.
A sequel to Destination happiness
I love putting up cute and unique wallpapers. Today, as I searched for a new one on theme “Waiting“, I found something strange and interesting. Continue reading “Waiting again”
Well, this is something I wanted to do for a long time and finally got enough time and energy to make it happen. Yay to me!!
It is always good to learn to be thankful and find the silver lining of every cloud. However, it is not so easy when you have one of those horrible, no-good days.
I guess that is what makes this a challenge.
So, I took up the challenge for posting one thing every day, to be thankful for.
After a lot of nerve wrecking blog set up, I finally got another WordPress site set up for the same.
Migration of posts from my Tumblr blog is still going on and hence the posts are not quite up to date. But it is published and open for visits and follows.

Can’t help but hear this over and over again
How long must I pray
Must I pray to You
How long must I wait
Must I wait for You
How long till I see Your face
See You shining through
I’m on my knees
Begging You to notice me
I’m on my knees
Father, will You turn to me
One tear in the dropping rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart
One light, that’s all I am
Right now I can barely stand
If You’re everything You say You are
Won’t You come close and hold my heart
I’ve been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes
So much can slip away before I say goodbye
But if there’s no other way
I’m done asking why
So many questions without answers
Your promises remain
I can’t see but I’ll take my chances
To hear you call my name
To hear you call my name
My last post in the 3-Day Quote challenge.
I gotta admit, it really made me happy to do this challenge and I am kind of sad it is already the third day.
Thank you Shoulda Broughta Book for the tag.
so, here is another of my favorite quotes.
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same
-The Fray (All at once)
I haven’t heard the song or the band but this quote had me thinking.
It is always easy to run away, to hide or to ignore. But that doesn’t make it the right choice. It is merely the easy choice.
The right choices might hurt you like sword, break your precious heart or even render you losses. But those will be THE RIGHT choices.
The right choice to let go of something or someone that is holding you back or to move away, sometimes run away from your weakness or at times to STAND firm in spite of all the storm raging around you.
It doesn’t matter how hard it is, learn to go the RIGHT way, instead of the EASY way.
Nominations?? All of you…Anyone who reads this and wanna take up on the challenge, please feel welcome to do so!!
