MOTHER AND SON

The first relationship a son will ever have is with his mother. A well-bonded child does better emotionally, behaviorally, academically and demonstrates resistance to peer pressure.

A mother teaches emotional intelligence to her son, which ultimately ensures that he can not only understand his own feelings, but also can be compassionate to others. This opens a space to teach him the power of intimacy, which ultimately leads to happiness in all relationships.

A son in late adolescence needs emotional support from his mother. He needs that hug and kiss on his cheek, that restores him, no matter what’s going on in his life.

Behind every successful man, there is a controlling mother. By constant communication with him, she promotes his emotional intelligence. Because of this, he has better friendships and close relationships, which help him have a happy life.

Salute to all the mothers. And Happy Mother’s Day!

LIVE YOUR DASH

 

1462518824951

The other day I was reading a quote, ‘Your life is made of two dates and a dash. Make the most of the dash’. And it got my attention!

Life is a struggle, neither comfortable nor safe; always moving a second towards death. No one will understand our journeys. We’re here to live our lives and not to make everyone understand.

We’re born and we die. What we do in the dash either echoes in eternity or will be forgotten the moment we die.

What we build, what we love,
What we’ve lived for,
And what we’re willing to die for!

Never settle for less than what we’re capable of, and regret in the end.

Unless we step out of the comfort zone; unless we step ourselves up for failure, we’ll never live life the way it’s meant to be lived.
We’ve one life. One chance.

Make the most of the dash and make it count!

 

PRAYER OF DEDICATION

Hear my prayer, O Lord;
Listen to my plea!
Answer me because
You are faithful and righteous.

I give my hands to do Your work
I give them willingly.
I give my feet to go Your way
I shall take cheerfully.
I give my eyes to see the world
In just the way You do.
I give my tongue to speak Your words
To spread Your mighty name.

Here I am before You,
Falling in love, seeking Your truth
You’re the only one,
That brings me to my knees.

I give my mind in every way
That You may think in me.
I give my spirit to You
That You may pray in me.
I give You my heart
That You may love in me.
I give You my whole self
That You may grow in me.

So it is You, Lord
Who live and work
And pray in me.
Amen…

SPARE THE ROD,SPOIL THE CHILD

It is not easy for a loving parent to discipline a child, but it is obligatory. The greatest responsibility that God gives parents is the nurture and counselling of their children. Lack of discipline puts love of parents in question, because it shows a lack of concern for the development of their children’s character. Disciplining children turns aside long-range disaster. Without correction, children grow up with no clear understanding of right and wrong and with little direction to their lives.

Don’t be afraid to discipline your children. Such discipline is an expression of “love” instead of “hatred”. Why? Because parents who allow their children to misbehave at will, do not love them enough to teach them right and wrong. Thus, a lack of discipline is the opposite of love, which is obviously hatred. The godly parent should be heard saying, “I love you enough to teach you right from wrong, so I need to discipline you now.” Children actually appreciate “security” of discipline in that they want Mom and Dad to show them the boundaries they can live within. Remember, however, that your efforts cannot make your children wise; they can only encourage your children to seek God’s wisdom above all else!

OTHER SIDE OF THE COIN

coin

When I think of some people,
And how they act for other’s notice,
The phrase that comes to me is
“Two sides of a coin”.

The side of the coin that’s up is
What they want the world to see:
And that’s faced down is
The hidden part of their identity.
But when the coin is flipped,
The unseen truth will finally be disclosed.

For whether love, joy, or peace;
Or anger or ranklement;
God knows all that’s concealed
In the depths of every heart.
He promises all will be exposed;
And from His promises He’ll never depart.
