You Matter Most! Poem For Viral Days







Once  in  a  while  

See   around  and  smile  :)

Say   hello   to  the  moment  

Which  is right  now  present 

Feel   him  and  his  grace !

Overwhelming   time's pace  

Sunsets   and  sunrise 

How  quickly  time  flies 

Life   is  not  forever  

Give  yourself  a  favor 

Take  break  from  the chores 

Open   soul 's  window   ,doors 


Let  in  light  and  breeze 

Dance  over  blue  seas 

Roam   madly  in  the  sky 

Leave  behind  "how " and  "why" 

It's  flight   of  your  heart  

For   the  spirit  is  No  knot !

Dwell   within  fragrant  blooms

To  find  joy  you  have  too Zoom 

It  is  sprinkled  here  and  there 

Waiting  for  you  "see  or  hear"

All   you  need  is  Insight  

Which  can   bring in  some  light 

In  the  dark , like  firefly 

Within   heart  is  your  joy 

Bring  it  out  and  let  it  lit  

Time  to  show  Your  Gift :)

Never  wait  "what  comes  from out"

Let  grow your " inner  sprout"

Let  it  grow  into  a  tree 

Who's   shade  will  set  you  free 

Your  strength  and  your  Faith 

Both  can  form  a  world  so  great

Don't  chase  shadows  like  a  ghost

It  is  you  that  matters  most ! 

 All  the  places  , all  the  things 

Altogether  cannot  bring  

Life  or color   into  the world  

In  this  jungle  Only you  are  bird  

Who 's  song   is   Sweet  of   all 

Special   guest  on  nature's  wall  :)

Garden  below  is  for  you  right  

Yet   without  it  you  can   survive 

Don't  see   yourself  as Nil 

You  have  gift  of  "surviving  skills "

Skills  that  keep you  alive  through   odds

Faith  in  you  and  Faith  In  God!

Like   a  seed  where ever  you  drop 

You  know  how  to  grow  to  top 

Stop  putting  condition for  joy 

You  are  reason for   smile  or  cry 

Step  out   of   the  frame 

Being  you  is  no  shame 

Pity   is  to  remain  slave   

In  ego's  Darkest  cave 

Unable  to  view across 

Ignorance  is the  biggest  loss 

Love  is  timeless  season 

To  get  this, step  out  of  reason


For  those friends who  feel  caged  these days !
Keep   your  spirit  high  guys ,it is  you  who  can  turn  your  space  into  limitless beautiful  world !
for  such  times  imagination is best gift !
take care and stay well and safe!

Who Is God And How ?



As  you  know like so many others  my family is also at home. School of kids and college  of hubby will open in 1st June hopefully .

We  are  having  nice  time  together .I  try not to supervise everything  about  kids  but i ask them  to  keep  studying  at least four hours a day with little  breaks .It  will keep them  ready  for  exams that will take place in June .

I  don't  know  i  mentioned  it  or  not  before  but  i  have  an  annoying  habit . Because  it is in my  nature  i  do  it inevitably and often .
What is it ?
I  start  lecturing  them about morality  and  try  to  convince them how important it is to be an honest  and  truthful  person. I  many  times in  a day  try  to  tell  them  that  there  someone  exist  whom  different  people  of  this  world  call   by different   names ,God ,Allah and  so on and on........

Last  night  when i  was  saying  my  teenager  that  he must be careful  about  his videos  watching  as  though  we  might  not  be  around  but  God  is  always  with and within  him to witness what  is  he watching or what is he thinking.

My  younger  one  who  had  tablet  in  his  hand suddenly  sat  beside  me  on  sofa  and asked  ,

WHO  IS GOD  AND HOW  mean   HOW DO I  EVEN KNOW HE EXIST ?

I  had  to  reply  him  quickly  so  he  cannot  doubt on  my  words.I  did  so  miraculously . I  don't  know  how  but  without  wasting a  second  and without hesitation  i  replied  to him ,

 HE  IS  ENERGY , A HUGE  ENORMOUS  BUNDLE  OF  ENERGY , everything   including  us  is  part  of  him . Everything  is  circulating  around  him or  towards him . We  cannot  see him  though  we  are  surrounded   by  him and  we  are  floating within   him . 

When   we   start   to  think  about  him  or  try  to  connect  with  him  ,he and his  energy  start  to  absorb  in  us . We  get  better  and  better  as  human each  day  and  his  strength adds into  our  energies  and make us stronger .

As  particles of  this  huge  energy  we  have  to  travel  towards   our  origin  (him) intentionally  because  this makes us what we are now and will make what we will be in  our next  existence. 

Who  travel  towards  him  with  honesty  and  without  being polluted by  vicious  characteristics like lie, cheating ,amorality,  he  accepts  them  aback as  his  own  part  because while they were away  they  tried to exist successfully means harmlessly .

Who  travel  opposite  and  think  there  is no one to answer for what  bad they do in life fearlessly ,they  loose  their  track and get themselves lost in  dirt  of  low life. They  are not accepted  and well come by him and , remain  lost within fragile  ashes of universe  as negative  energies . No  matter how  powerful  they  think  they  are  but  their powers  stands  nowhere  when  it  comes  to  confront  with  true  and eternal  power  of  God!

I  told  him  what  i  believe  and  what  i  have  learnt  during  fifty  years  of  my  life . My  belief  formed  through  my  experiences  and  observations and  little bit  knowledge of  life i could learn til this  day. I  believe  that  if  each  particle of  energy (we)  makes harmony with  another with an absolute  honesty there will  be  no  need  of  cleverness or  weapons to  run this .

We  create  our  heaven and  hell with  our own attitude and actions. If  we  are  free  of  all  dark  and negative  thoughts  our  conscience is  light  and  free . I  believe  that  Lord  guard  such  spirits himself  as he  has  promised .He worth trust so we should trust his wisdom instead our  wickedness . 

And  if  are  such  people we  will  surely  create  beautiful  world  around  us and  will make  harmony  to  our  coexistent  with  love and  peace  without   any stupid claim of superiority as we  know there is no such  thing like race created by Lord but only man made rubbish.

Roaming  straight to our  origin can  not  cause  any kind of trouble or  destruction to  world and  life  can  be worth living for all equally! 
If  this is naive thing to say then  we  should  think what  our  cleverness  have  done   to our world  already ?

Painful Comment , Funeral And New Washing Machine



Hey  Dear  Friends !

Hope  and  pray   that  facing   these  weird  times  wisely  ,How   strong  we  are  reveals  only  tough  times  of  our  life .How  smartly  we  take  care  of  ourselves  and  others   depend  on  our  insight  and  patience meanwhile  .

Being  panic  can  show  our  weakness ,weakness  to  not  having  capacity  for  love  and  kindness we  can  share  to  other  humans  like  us. And weakness to  not have power for making Right decision at the moment.
 While  ago  when  i  finished  my  laundry  and  took  break  from  cooking , i  came  and  sat  on  my  resting  place  where  my  laptop  is  kept  mostly.
 I  got  up  from  laying  down  for  few  minutes  and  thought  it  would  be  better  to  visit  one  blogger  friend  meanwhile  at  least .I  visited  Betty  of  Woody Fairy . She  warned  about  a painful  and  discouraging  comment  she received  and  asked  all  blogger  friends to  mark it as spam .I  appreciate  her  care  for  blogging  friends . Few  days  back  i  visited  Joe of  Cranky Old Man (both on side bar ) .I  read  word  baby  boomer .It  was  unfamiliar term so i googled about it ,due to lack of time i did not pondered much about it though  after   reading  Betty's explanation  i comprehend it completely .

I  received  same  comment while ago  but  sent it to spam  box . It  is  sad  that  people  are  as  insensitive  and  heartless  to  spread  such  poisonous  thoughts . It  is  hard  to  decide  whether  laugh  or  cry  over  the  lack   of  their insight . Do  they  think  they  will  always  remain  young  and  healthy ? Or  they  have  stamp  from  God  who  will  spare  them from  all  humanly  sufferings ?
Because  no  person  with  normal  healthy  mind  can  think  or  say  as  Low .
Why  we  forget  that  when  we  disrespect  others  we  show  how  honor less we  are because  we  can  give away  only  what we have simply. Being  judge  for others  show  only  meanness and  triviality we  possess inside us  because  no  mindful  man  can  ever  think  to  judge  other  over  their  date  of  birth  ,what a  shame. Only  our  Creator  who  has  created us  and  blessed us with  countless blessings has  right  to  judge us.

We  live  in  eastern  country  and  here still  elderly people  are  blessing of the  God! I  am  not  saying  that  everyone  is  saint  here but  it  is  still  part  of  our  culture  to  make  elderly  people  sit  on  the  leading  chair of  the dinner  table or  house. I  know  times  are  changing  quickly.Since  people  have  learnt  about  their  rights as individuals  they  want separate  space  and  respect  for  their  privacy .But  it  is  also  true  that  still  more  families  prefer  to  live in  joint system as  they  know  the  importance  of  grand  parents . How  important  it  is  for  their  children to  learn  from  their  grand parents  what  their parents  cannot  teach  due  to  lack  of  time  and  burden of  daily responsibilities . So  many  sons and  daughters  stay  with  their  parents forever  as they  care  for what their parents did for them when  they were  dependent.

But  even  if  we  consider that  there is no  such  thing still  i  have  faith  that  young  generation here has  certain  respect  for  older  people whether  they  are in  blood relationship or stranger . It  is  in  their  genes until now. It is  almost impossible to  treat elderly  people with  such  disgrace  and  leave  them  with  such  hurtful words. This is inhuman thing to do.
Despite  of  all self isolation it is hard to keep distance sometimes. Two  days   back  one lady  died in our neighborhood .She  was nice  person  and  always much  caring for people  around . Hubby  and  i   had  to  attend  her  funeral .It   was  time to show compassion  and  sharing  pain  of  young  lovely  daughters she left  behind. Her  husband  had  died long ago when we were new in colony .My heart ached for both sisters who  were crying badly while saying goodbye.Here  people keep  visiting house where death happened  for forty days ,it is part of culture ,people gather and recite verses from holy book to  calm soul that just left mortal world behind and looked for  God's mercy in new world she entered .When our  eldest  son  knew  got angry   because he thinks it is must to keep distance and stay safe  no matter what .we don't know what to do ,it is completely weird !
   
my  new washing machine is made of plastic completely unlike older one which was of steel 





fragrance  of red roses is embracing senses everyday now days ,this is soul  refreshing  to smell them ,most favorite flower to me 


It is cloudy since two days ,it was little pouring either last night but not more than that,  cloudy weather can delay extreme summer ahead for short while hopefully ,temp arrived to 35 already.

Stay  safe  and  blessed with strength that provides Faith planted deep inside your soul my friends!  Hope is pure product of Faith so never leave the hope!
Blessings!

Walk Of Gratitude In Front Yard And More Blooms!



last  evening   while  walking  in  my  front  yard  i  thought  about  my  friends  who  used  to  go  for  walk  outdoors  but  due  to  this  virus  thing  are  forced  to  stay  inside  for  while.

Since   this  weird  situation   has  come  up  i often  think about  all  of  my  friends  who  are  temporarily  disconnected  from  usual  routine  of  life  regarding  outdoor activities .I  felt  for  all  of  you  while  walking in my  yard  yesterday  either.

Then  i  thought   how  hard  it  can  be  for  those who are   not habitual . Here   women  go  for  walk  in  parks  with  family  members  or  with  female  friends  not  alone  because  following  their  instincts  freely  specially  outdoors  is  not  acceptable  until now and it can  cause confrontation  with oppression .

As  part  of  my  society  i  am  used  to  this  honestly .I don't  mind   staying  as  introvert though  i  know women  spend  quite  of  their  day  visiting  relatives  ,friends and  market . I  find  bit  difficult  to  socialize  like  this but when  i  have  to  i  do  it  from  the  bottom of my heart .
I  enjoy  living  inside  my  space  called  home . As  young  woman  i  never  thought  i  will  have  separate  home  before  marriage  because  i  had  no  intention  to  get  married .After  marriage  when  i  had  my  own  space  i  don't  know  from  where  skills  of management  came  as  when  i  see  older  videos  of  my  previous  home  i  feel  good  that  i  was  keeping  it  clean  and  organized . Deep  inside  my  heart  i  know  that  somehow  i was  just  trying  to invest  my time  and energy  in  positive  constructive  way  and  yes  to  please  my  husband  because  he  was ,is very  conscious  about  cleanliness and  keeping  stuff arranged.
I  had  really  little  yard  there  so  i  could  not  walk  their  for  sixteen  years  though  i  did  regular  tough  physical  exercise instead  so  i  can  face  everyday  physical  responsibilities easily.

When  we  moved  here  we  had  four  rooms ,one  kitchen  and four  bathrooms  with  big  front  yard 30 by 30 .

In  the  beginning we  would  get  tired when  we  had  to  take  15 steps  to open  main gate and 15 to come back ,but  now  these  thirty  steps  are  my  happy  walk  every  evening :)

In  my  few  earlier posts  i  shared  that  hubby  resembles  with  my  mother  in  some of his  habits. He  share  her  strong  sense of right and wrong , sense of responsibility   and care for loved ones along with passion for cleanliness.He  also  has  same fondness for  gardening though  he  did not  grow  vegetables  like  her but  he  likes  to  do  plantation. His  love  for  garden  have  brought  soul  to  my  front yard . While  walking  i  can  see  part  of  nature  so  close to me and  i  know  how  important  it  is to  have  it around!
In winters  seasonal  flowers fill  front yard  with  delightful colored lanterns  which  deliver  joy to  heart through  each  sight !

We  spread  laundry  in  our  front  yard, sit  on  desk  and  have  tea  together. These  moments   are  precious  because life  is  not  gonna stay forever  and sometimes  when  i  rerun  imaginary tape  i  see how  quickly  time  is  flying by ,we  have  passed  already  almost  14 years  in this  home together. This  is  house  of  dream fro  us as couple and we  are  grateful  that  we  could  live within  it by  the  grace   of  Lord!


In  future  no matter  what  happen or  where ever  kids settle this  will  be  place  which  built  their  father  for them ,it  will  be  completely  their  decision  if they want to keep it or ... 

today before breakfast  i  washed grains but clouds covered the  sky ,it takes two days to dry it if sun appears ,no matter what i am happy with cloudy weather ,it rained in another province ,hope it does here too ,atleast little bit ,i love when rain washes away the dust from everything as our area is sandy

  blue flowers are fascinating to me ,they are special as blue is my favorite color and speaks to me more than others



the day we bought dinner set in Sukkur we  went to park before market , my son captured this lone chimpanzee  ,rides in this section are now small for him ,he misses to be on them so do i

consider these red roses my love and prayers for all of you dear friends ! though mine are far more than them !


captured while ago ,sunflowers  have power to transform your mood ,don't they ,i wait for them whole year and Lord is merciful to answer my prayers !

this one is shy from darkness and shuts itself as sun goes down ,next morning he reopens himself delicately until 10 am almost  i love the strength and neatness within leaves ,so pretty ! spring is happy face of nature and her smiles are AWAKENING and REFRESHING!

while ago , our neem tree is gaining her  new outfit back slowly ,right now it looks like jewels  more than dress ,here during wedding ceremony girls also participate while wearing flower jewelry ,do you have something like this there , personally i hate plucking flower ,i never did 

 few weeks before when i captured this flashlight was on and this is how it added the beauty to image,details are more evident and appealing ,art work of creator is irreplaceable ,i bet no science can bring such delicacy and charm in any artificial  one ,i have some plants who seem result of experiment ,when i touch their petals they seem like those which i bought from market ,Lord  has given some of his characteristics to each of his creation and i don't this it is possible to touch that height or depth with manly power ,it is so  limited  and bond  to work accordingly

 one of the most precious sight ,it is hard to convey the soothness that i felt while capturing this ,i was tired after laundry but looking at finished job gave me some rewarding relief and peace :) few week older image,oh i did not tell you that hubby sold out the older washing machine and has bought this one with double prize,it is far better than previous one


daises were not many this year ,i missed their joyous presence ,these also did not look healthy i don't know why
 this one took few days back while sitting on the desk where we have our morning tea until day gets hot ,in summer when temperature rises to 50 plus sitting out is impossible , it drops after midnight and we sleep in our front yard ,i am fortunate to have open sky while sleeping ,stars and moon are friendly here either and having look on them before going to sleep gives me sense of being connected with my days in native house with parents 

 almost two weeks back i captured when clouds were floating in the bright blue sky ,they seemed so near and so lovely ,it was windy day and clouds were coming and going swiftly ,it was intriguing sight to observe


 i could not find much time to write a proper post since many days as you know family is home and i am trying to make our days together happier by being with them simply .

I am constantly thinking about all of you and praying that may these days pass soon and you guys go out to cherish spring to it's fullest!
May life be normal for all of us soon, thought about people who were on daily wages concerns me most!!!
i wish governments can think about their families in such times  and support them .
Keep taking good care dear friends! 
stay well and safe!
God bless you all!!!
