An Instrument of Peace

At 8.00 a.m. in the morning, we had to be ready for the assembly that started with prayers followed by announcements, news and prayer requests. I remember being dropped by our school bus half an hour early to the school time that allowed us to take copies from our friends to finish our homework before the school day started. There was always a sense of urgency to finish them on time as we never wanted to get those red remarks in the school diary. 

At 8.00 a.m. in the morning, the entire school stood still because it was time for prayers. From a very young age, I was always attracted to a conversation with the Invisible, but standing alongside 60+ students with joined hands never gave me that feeling of being prayerful. 

“Make me an instrument of your peace”, used to be a frequent song played during the prayer time. I loved this song, I still love this song – but probably I never understood the deeper meaning of it until later when I heard it on YouTube recently. It took me back to the memories of my school. Looking at where the world is heading into – constant chaos, hatred, destruction, and distrust – each of the word adds so much meaning. If there would have been something called a “World Anthem”, I would have proposed this song for the same.

I’ll make you smile

As a person, I’ve been an observer both in my personal and professional life. I like observing people and adopting the positiveness from them. And now been a blogger, there is always an urge to also share this positiveness and the inspiration that I get, to my readers as well.

So let me introduce you to this little baby and her mom with their enchanting smile.  I met them during a recent trip. I was really awestruck to see the mother at work with the baby tied in a handmade sling and she managed it so flawlessly.

Often when a challenge comes our way, naturally we get bogged down by the situation failing to carve out a direction for ourselves. But this capture proves that there can be no roadblocks in life, all we need to do is to put our energy in finding solutions to pursue our dreams.

Have a great day!

Cheers!
