Music for weddings

Tying the knot between soon-to-be couples is one of the best moments in life. Being in front of many people with the one you will love for the rest of your life must be perfect that is why weddings are planned for months. Choosing the music that will play in your wedding has to be symbolic for the couple, whether it is their theme song or the song they heard when they first met, it has to be connected to them. Love songs indeed are the wedding background music for all time but you can also include serene and soft instrumentals while the guests are at the reception. It would be nice if you know someone like a balladeer to sing at the wedding reception to liven up the occasion.

My ultimate Christmas wish

Save for the material things, I only have an important wish this Christmas – that is to surpass all the possible complications of my forthcoming surgery. I have discussed about this medical procedure in my other blog and last night I received all my lab tests that clear me from any condition that needs correction before the day of operation.

I admit I’m a nervous wreck. I’ve got so easily stressed over everything. But surprisingly, I’m at peace with the thought that I will undergo a major operation. Maybe I’ve got my gift this early. God is really good all the time.

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)

Mahatma Gandhi and Professor Peters

Reposting this very clever and amusing “interactions” between Mahatma Ghandi and Mr. Peters from truthorfiction.com. #fiction

When Gandhi was studying law at the University College of London, a white professor, whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely and always displayed prejudice and animosity towards him. Also, because Gandhi never lowered his head when addressing him, as he expected…. there were always “arguments” and confrontations.

One day, Mr Peters was having lunch at the dining room of the University, and Gandhi came along with his tray and sat next to the professor. The professor said, “Mr Gandhi, you do not understand. A pig and a bird do not sit together to eat.”
Gandhi looked at him as a parent would a rude child and calmly replied, “You do not worry professor. I’ll fly away,” and he went and sat at another table.

Mr Peters, reddened with rage, decided to take revenge on the next test paper, but Gandhi responded brilliantly to all questions. Mr Peters, unhappy and frustrated, asked him the following question. “Mr Gandhi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom and another bag with a lot of money, which one would you take?”

Without hesitating, Gandhi responded, “The one with the money, of course.”

Mr Peters, smiling sarcastically said, “I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom, don’t you think?”

Gandhi shrugged indifferently and responded, “Each one takes what he doesn’t have.”

Mr Peters, by this time, was fit to be tied. So great was his anger that he wrote on Gandhi’s exam sheet the word “idiot” and gave it to Gandhi. Gandhi took the exam sheet and sat down at his desk trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move.

A few minutes later, Gandhi got up, went to the professor and said to him in a dignified but sarcastically polite tone, “Mr Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me the grade.”
