“I’ve always, for as long as I remember, had a concept of God. I don’t believe I would still be here today, if I didn’t live a life according to my beliefs and a power that is so much greater than I am.”

HOPE

“We are moving from an era of resistance, division, opression, turmoil and conflict… and starting a new era of hope, reconcilation and nation-building. I sincerely hope that the mere casting of a vote… will give hope to all South Africans.”
– the words of Nelson Mandela at South Africa’s first Democratic election on 27th April 1994 at Ohlange High School in Natal Province, where John Dube, the founder of the African National Congress in 1912 was buried)

Let this be your task, let this be your greatest joy: to give back to themselves…even in their darkest hour.”
– adapted (slightly) fromn Neale Donald Walsch (‘Conversations with God 3’)

“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.

I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
to show you the simple beauty of life
and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

I wish you rainbows
I wish you well
– Larry S. Chenges

Sharing a Few Thoughts on Faith

“If I can throw a single ray of light across the darkened pathway of another;
if I can aid some soul to clearer sight of life and duty, and thus bless my brother;
if I can wipe from any human cheek a tear,
I shall not have lived my life in vain while here.
If I can guide some erring one to truth, inspire within his heart a sense of duty;
if I can plant within my soul of rosy youth a sense of right, a love of truth and beauty;
if I can teach one man that God and heaven are near,
I shall not then have lived in vain while here.
If from my mind I banish doubt and fear, and keep my life attuned to love and kindness;
if I can scatter light and hope and cheer, and help remove the curse of mental blindness;
if I can make more joy, more hope, less pain, I shall not have lived and loved in vain.
If by life’s roadside I can plant a tree, beneath whose shade some wearied head may rest,
though I may never share its beauty, I shall yet be truly blest
— though no one knows my name, nor drops a flower upon my grave,
I shall not have lived in vain while here.”
