TIME HAS NO HOLIDAY



















Today is the last day of the year 2017. Early in the morning, Mr. Amol, a person I admire much had shared with me this wonderful message:

“Time has no holiday,
Dreams have no expiry date,
And Life has no pause button.
Live it… Love it…
Enjoy each and every moment of your life!

Save only those memories
which give twinkle in your eyes…
not wrinkles on your face!

Good morning…
Have a fantastic last day of the year of 2017
and look forward to a wonderful 2018!


I really loved the lines:

“Save only those memories
which give twinkle in your eyes…
not wrinkles on your face!”

So, today is that day, when all of us have to decide what we should save in ‘our memory card’… and what we should not. Yes, the year 2017 had its own offerings to each one of us… There were joyful moments and there were painful ones, too. We have smiled and laughed a lot many times… and we have cried, feared and sulked a lot many times, too. But, at the end of it all, as the New Year comes our way, we all have to decide whether to welcome it with sorrow and complaints in our hearts or with joy and gratitude. That’s what the above poem conveys us:

“Time has no holiday,
Dreams have no expiry date,
And Life has no pause button.
Live it… Love it…
Enjoy each and every moment of your life!”


And, now, as the day is almost coming to an end, Uday, another dear friend of mine, shared with me this lovely song by Jeff and Sheri Easter:

“While the world looks upon me, as I struggle alone
They say I have nothing, but they are so wrong
In my heart I'm rejoicing, how I wish they could see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

There's a roof up above me
I've a good place to sleep
There's food on my table
And shoes on my feet
You gave me your love Lord
And a fine family
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me

I know I'm not wealthy, and these clothes, they're not new

I don't have much money, but Lord I have you
That's all that matters, though the world may not see
Thank you Lord, for your blessings on me
There's a roof up above me

I've a good place to sleep

There's food on my table
And shoes on my feet
You gave me your love Lord.”







What a way to end the year… Rather, start a new one!

Wish you all a very happy and peaceful New Year. When you are happy and peaceful, you will be  prosperous, too, you see!
