    Anger is a condition in which
    the tongue works faster than the mind.

    You can't change the past,
    but you can ruin the present
    by worrying over the future.

    The darkest moment of the night is just before dawn.

    Keep your eyes wide open before marriage,
    half shut afterwards.

    All people smile in the same language.

    A hug is a great gift... one size fits all.
    It can be given for any occasion
    and it's easy to exchange.

    Everyone needs to be loved...
    especially when they do not deserve it.

    The real measure of a man's wealth
    is what he has invested in eternity.

    Love...and you shall be loved.

    Everyone has beauty
    but not everyone sees it.

    It's important for parents to live
    the same things they teach.

    The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen
    or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.

    If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries of tomorrow,
    you have no today to be thankful for.

    Marriage is like a game of compromise.
    When either one of the players stops compromising,
    the game is about to end.

    The choice you make today
    will usually affect tomorrow.

    Take time to laugh, for it is
    the music of the soul.

    If anyone speaks badly of you,
    live so none will believe it.

    Patience is the ability to idle your motor
    when you feel like stripping your gears.

    Love is strengthened by working
    through conflicts together.

    The best thing parents can do
    for their children is to love each other.

    Harsh words break no bones
    but they do break hearts.

    To get out of a difficulty,
    one usually must go through it.

    We take for granted the things
    that we should be giving thanks for.

    Love is the only thing that can be
    divided without being diminished.

    Happiness is enhanced by others
    but does not depend upon others.

    For every minute you are angry with someone,
    you lose 60 seconds of happiness
    that you can never get back.

    Do what you can, for who you can,
    with what you have, and where you are.

    Cute Story


    A little girl went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet.


    She poured the change out on the floor and counted it carefully. Three times, even The total had to be exactly perfect. No chance here for mistakes.


    Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief sign above the door.

    She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was too busy at this moment. Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise. Nothing. She cleared her throat
    with the most disgusting sound she could muster. No good Finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter. That did it!


    'And what do you want?' the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice. I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages,' he said without waiting for a reply to his question.

    'Well, I want to talk to you about my brother,' Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone. 'He's really, really sick...and I want to buy a miracle.'

    'I beg your pardon?' said the pharmacist.

    'His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now So how much does a miracle cost?'

    'We don't sell miracles here, little girl. I'm sorry but I can't help you,' the pharmacist said, softening a little.


    'Listen, I have the money to pay for it. If it isn't enough, I will get the rest. Just tell me ho w much it costs.'

    The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed man He stooped down and asked the little girl, 'What kind of a miracle does your brother need?'

    ' I don't know,' Tess replied with her eyes welling up. I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation. But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money.'


    'How much do you have?' asked the man from Chicago

    'One dollar and eleven cents,' Tess answered barely audibly.

    'And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more if I need to.'

    'Well, what a coincidence,' smiled the man. 'A dollar and eleven cents---the exact price of a
    miracle for little brothers. '

    He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her mitten and said 'Take me to where you live. I want to see your brother and meet your parents. Let's see if I have the miracle you need.'

    That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a surgeon, specializing in neuro-surgery. The operation was completed free of charge and it wasn't long until Andrew was home again and doing well.

    Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place.


    'That surgery,' her Mom whispered. 'was a real miracle. I wonder how much it would have cost?'

    Tess smiled. She knew exactly how much a miracle cost.one dollar and eleven cents....plus the faith of a little child.


    In our lives, we never know how many miracles we will need.

    A miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the operation of a higher law. I know you'll keep the ball moving!

    Here it goes. Throw it back to someone who means something to you!

    A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end. It keeps us together like our Circle of Friends. But the treasure inside for you to see is the treasure of friendship you've granted to me.

    Today I pass the friendship ball to you.

    Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you.


    GOD'S OATH ...

    When you are sad.....I will dry your tears.

    When you are scared.....I will comfort your fears.

    When you are worried.....I will give you hope.

    When you are confused....I will help you cope.

    And when you are lost... And can't see the light, I shall be your beacon....Shining ever so bright.

    This is my oath.....I pledge till the end.

    Why you may ask?....Because I AM YOUR FRIEND.

    Signed: GOD

    Excellent, beutiful, magnificient.
    Can you pl tell me what sort of books you read. where did u find these gems?
    you know what is the reality of God? He is our best friend.
    God does not want our worship. He wants our friendship.
    How we can have friendship with God is a topic i would like to start in the forum.
    There is one beutiful shabad by siri Guru Arjan Dev ji in Rag Ramkali on page 958 which reads as
    'HAR IKSE NAL MAI DOSTI , HAR EKSE NAL MAI SANG-----
    WE ALL CAN HAVE DOSTI WITH AKAL PURAKH.

    Re: All people smile in the same language.

    :hello1:
    It is so inspiring and educational. Children are so innocent in their hearts. They believe so easily what ever has been said to them by someone.
    At the same time the story of this little girl has reality of life. Oye Gurbani teaches us everyday , if you have a full faith in anything, your desires will be fulfilled but the condition is you must have firm faith.

    In Sikhism we do prayer everyday for the wellness of whole world. Ardas is personal and for all the universe.
    An Ardas, which benefits many, is heard.
    An Ardas without involving ‘I’ or ego is heard.
    An Ardas that reduces ego or haume and is spiritually uplifting is heard

    “When your soul is feeling sad, offer your prayers to the Guru. Renounce all your cleverness, and surrender your mind and body to Him. Worship the Feet of the Guru (touch of divine within), and your evil-mindedness shall be burnt away.”
    With Regards

    Arz kiya hai

    Jeevan me kamyab hone ke liye 3 factory lagao!!!!
    1) Dimag me Ice factory.
    2) Zuban par Sugar factory.
    3) Dil me Love factory. Phir life hogi satisfactory..
    Ek din Sagar ne Nadi se pucha:
    Kab tak milati rahogi mujhe khare pani se ???
    Nadi ne haskar kaha :
    Jab tak tujh me mithas na aa jaye tab tak !!!
    Thats "RELATIONSHIP".
    Dostana andaaz mein Mujh se kisi ne pucha,
    Tum sabko email bhejhte ho ? Tumhe kya milta hai ?
    Maine hass kar kaha, Dena Lena to Vyaapar hai,
    Jo dekar kuch na mange, Wo hi to PYAR hai.
    1 tree makes 1 Lakh matchsticks.
    But 1 matchstick can burn 1 Lakh trees.
    Similarly 1 negative thought or doubt can burn thousands of dreams....Be Positive Always !!!
    Chehre ki hasi se har gam chupao,
    Bahut kuch bolo par kuch na batao...
    Khud na rutho kabhi, par sabko manao
    Ye Raz hai Zindagi ka, Bas Jite chale jao
    Wa prabhu kya leela teree :
    Chuhe Billi se darte hai,
    Billi Kutte se darte hai,
    Kutta Aadmi se darte hai,
    Aadmi Aurat se darta hai,
    Aurat Chuhhe se darti hai.

    Re: All people smile in the same language.

    It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives.

    I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.

    Hard work never killed anybody, but why take a chance?

    Energizer Bunny arrested, charged with battery.

    If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?

    Everybody wants to go to heaven; but nobody wants to die.

    Worst excuse for not turning in homework: I couldn't find anyone to copy it from.

    Everyone has photographic memory; some just don't have the film.

    "One of the great things about books is sometimes there are some fantastic pictures." -George W. Bush

    There is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an id iot.

    Is it good if a vacuum really sucks?

    In God we trust; all others must pay cash.

    Re: All people smile in the same language.

    Cell phone vs. Pothi (Gutka Sahib)
    I was delighted just reading the title..!
    Ever-wonder what would happen if we treated our Pothi like we treat our cell phone?
    What if we carried it around with us?
    What if we flipped through it several times a day?
    What if we turned back to go get it if we forgot it?
    What if we used it to receive messages from the text?
    What if we treated it like we couldn't live without it?
    What if we gave it to Kids as gifts?
    What if we used it when we traveled?
    What if we used it in case of emergency?
    This is something to make you go...hmm...where is my Pothi?
    Oh, and one more thing.!
    Unlike our cell phone, we don't have to worry about our Pothi being disconnected because Waheguru already paid the bill.
    Makes you stop and think 'where are my priorities? And no dropped calls!
    P.S. DO WHAT YOU THINK WAHEGURU WOULD WANT YOU TO DO WITH THIS EMAIL.
    (Have faith in Waheguru and *ASAP (Always Say A Prayer).

    Waheguru Bless and be in Chardi Kala…ALWAYS..!!

    Subject: FW: A Lesson From A Donkey


    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried
    piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

    Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be
    covered up anyway;

    it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey..

    He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed
    a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey
    realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's
    amazement he quieted down.

    A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He
    was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his
    back, the donkey was doing something amazing.
    He would shake it off and take a step up.

    As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the
    animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.

    Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the
    edge of the well and happily trotted off!

    Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to
    getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of
    our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells
    just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

    Remember the five simple rules to be happy:

    Free your heart from hatred - Forgive.

    Free your mind from worries - Most never happen.

    Live simply and appreciate what you have.

    Give more.

    Expect less.

    NOW ............

    The donkey later came back,
    and bit the farmer who had tried to bury him.

    The gash from the bite got infected and
    the farmer eventually died in agony from septic shock.

    MORAL FROM TODAY'S LESSON:

    When you do something wrong, and try to cover your ***, it always
    comes back to bite you.
