Interesting Morning Story !!

The Tea Cup...

There was a couple who used to go to shop in the beautiful stores. They both liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups. One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. They said, "May we see that? We've never seen one quite so beautiful." As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke.

"You don't understand," it said. "I haven't always been a teacup. There was a time when I was red and I was clay." My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over and I yelled out, "let me alone", but he only smiled, "Not yet."

"Then I was placed on a spinning wheel," the teacup said, "and suddenly I was spun around and around and around. Stop it! I'm getting dizzy!" I screamed. But the master only nodded and said, 'Not yet."

Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat. I wondered why he wanted to burn me, and I yelled and knocked at the door. I could see him through the opening and I could read his lips as He shook his head, "Not yet."

Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool. "There, that's better," I said. And he brushed and painted me all over. The fumes were horrible. I thought I would gag. "Stop it, stop it!" I cried. He only nodded, "Not yet."

Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate. I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried. All the time I could see him through the opening nodding his head saying, "Not yet."

Then I knew there wasn't any hope. I would never make it. I was ready to give up. But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf. One hour later he handed me a mirror and said, "Look at yourself." And I did. I said, "That's not me; that couldn't be me. It's beautiful. I'm beautiful."

"I want you to remember," then, he said, "I know it hurts to be rolled and patted, but if I had left you alone, you'd have dried up. I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel, but if I had stopped, you would have crumbled.

I knew it hurt and was hot and disagreeable in the oven, but if I hadn't put you there, you would have cracked. I know the fumes were bad when I brushed and painted you all over, but if I hadn't done that, you never would have hardened; you would not have had any color in your life.

And if I hadn't put you back in that second oven, you wouldn't survive for very long because the hardness would not have held. Now you are a finished product. You are what I had in mind when I first began with you."

God knows what He's doing (for all of us).He is the Potter, and we are His clay.

He will mould us and make us, So that we may be made into a flawless piece of work To fulfill His good, pleasing, and perfect will.

Have a Happy Weekend !!!

Beautiful Morning Words !!

Life is not about the people who act true to your face, 
Its about the people who remain true behind your back.

When it is obvious that that the goals cannot be reached, 
don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps !

Everyone who’s in your life are meant to be in your journey, 
but not all of them are meant to stay there forever !

It is better to be hated for what you are 
than to be loved for something you are not !

It's easy to hate, hold a grudge and get even. 
It takes Great Strength to Forgive, 
Let Go and Move On !

Apologizing doesn't mean that you're wrong and the other person is right. 
It just means that you value your relationship with that person, more than your ego !

The hard reality of life is that when you need advice,
 everyone is ready to help you. 
But when you need help, 
everyone is ready to advice you !

Energetic Morning Poem !!

As a friend I do wish you the best of life's blessings
And freedom from sickness and pain.
May your prayers and oblations, 
as blooms of carnations,
Flourish in sunshine and rain.
May the blessings of heaven be showered upon you
With favor from God.
May you harvest with pleasure the fruits of your labor
To share with whoever you can.
May the dew in the morning refresh and delight you,
And your days be filled with great peace.
May your nights without number be filled with sweet slumber;
Your dreams filled with hope ne'er cease.
May your mate and your children bequeathed and beloved
Be cherished as jewels set in gold.
May your joy blend with laughter, both now and hereafter,
As the days of your life unfold.
