Niece Mahima 's Graduation Pictures


With Mom and Dad




A day to remember with Mom, Dad and brother Ashish
Hello friends. Pray everyone is doing well. Had a peaceful quiet time after the funeral and memorial prayer service. We are getting lots of phone calls from everywhere, messages and visits too. News of Aunt V 's passing away travelled fast through the Internet and SMSs and friends responded from far and wide places, connected with some people after 20 years. This is the good side of technology.
On Wednesday I took an aunt to buy hearing aid batteries and collect her pathology reports.
On Friday I visited her (Aunt) and a Christian couple . The husband and wife have a photography and videography business.. They also do graphic designing. It was lovely to get out of the heat and humidity and visit them in their nice air conditioned office.
We had a very light shower in the afternoon, but its still very hot and humid. This weather is not conducive for arthritis suffers.. I have to take pain killers.
As FIFA World Cup draws to an close, the two soothsayers Octopus Paul and Parrot Mani are center stage whetting the better 's appetite.I think they are the bookies conspiracy. Here the local Shyama bird is also making predictions. They had an hour long TV program featuring the animal "prophets".
In India you can see parrots, birds and cows making predictions and telling fortunes. Usu sally a certain type of people go after them. I was joking with my Sheeba ( my doggie);I will lay two biscuits before you marked Spain and Netherlands.The one you eat first will be the champions. But my experiment will fail...Sheeba is too quick , she will grab both the biscuits at the same time. LOL.
Jokes aside my future is not in the beak, claw , hoof or tentacle of an animal.It is in the Lord 's hands.
For I know the plans I have for you 'declares the Lord,"plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ' Jeremiah 29:11.
Mahima' s future too.

12 Fertilize my soul:

Your niece is lovely and congratulations to her on her graduation. The blue of her dress and her mom's are very attractive.
I enjoyed hearing how animals make predictions in India, but not your little dog; she is too quick.

Congratulations on the graduation of your niece Mahima. May she become very successful in her chosen career. Condolence on the passing of your aunt. I am very sorry to hear that she passed away. May the Lord God receive her in His arms. Yes, Paul the psychic octopus is making news with his accurate predictions of the winners in the World Cup. I'm glad Spain won, for it is my first choice. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.
