Happiness quote...

Life Is Very Strange !!!

We Wish To Wear High
Brands, But
We Feel Most Comfortable
In Simple Dresses…

We Wish To Sit In A Five
Star Hotel With Elite
People, But
We Enjoy The Roadside
Vendor Food With Friends …

We Wish To Own Big Cars
& Go On Long Drives, Yet
We Talk Our Heart Out Only
While Walking Down A Long
Road …

We Have 64GB iPods Filled
With Songs, But
Sometimes A Song On Radio
Brings A Smile That Cannot Be
Compared …

Life Is Simple Indeed
We Make It Complex By
Running After What Never Gives
Us Happiness …

We Shouldn’t Chase Luxuries &
Glamour Blindly,
Lets Focus On The Peace Of
Heart n Soul Also … ♥ ♥

Life is full of Blessings…

Life is full of Blessings
I cried because I had no Shoes…….
Till I saw a man with no feet………
Life is full of blessings …….
Sometimes we are just too blind …..To see them…..

What an Inspiring Quote !!!!

So often we regret for small small things in life and
overlook to acknowledge the things which we have.

Let us acknowledge the grace within us and
be grateful for the infinite good things which we possess.

Hey !!!! 
 If you are reading this means … we are alive !!!!
Isn’t that the greatest blessing of all …..

Enjoy your Weekend!!

These Laws were given forth by Creator God Aton of Light, and The Creation, and are also called The Laws of Balance. –

A. The highest command of The Law of Creation is:
Achieve the wisdom of knowledge inasmuch as this will enable you to wisely follow the Laws of the Creation.

B. The highest command of The Law of God is:
You shall Honor God as the Ruler of the human races and follow His Laws for HE is the “King of Wisdom”.

We attain spiritual perfection by learning and wisely following the Laws given forth by God and Creation. We learn through the Spirit of God within us how to live in harmony and balance with all of Creation.

The Laws are as follows:
  1. You shall have no other gods than the Creator God before you and abide with the Laws of the Creation which encompasses all. Also known as the “Law of One”.
  2. You shall not make for yourselves idols and false images to worship as gods for therein you give power into the hands of evil.
  3. You shall love the Lord God with all your heart, soul and being (you must love yourself as God and God as yourself).
  4. You shall not use the name of God irreverently, nor use it to swear to a falsehood.
  5. Remember God’s “day” and keep it holy. (Every day is God’s “day”.)
  6. You shall honor your mother and father.
  7. You shall not murder your fellow man. (Killing to preserve your life or of your family is not murder)
  8. You must not commit adultery.
  9. You must not steal (materially or emotionally).
  10. You must not covet or envy that which belongs to your neighbor.
  11. You must not impose nor force your free-will upon the free-will of another. Also known as “The Law of Non-interference.”
  12. You must not judge (condemn) others, but you must wisely judge all behavior and actions which are contrary to the Laws of God and The Creation.
  13. As you sow, so shall you reap. Also called “The Law of Cause and Effect.”
  14. You must honor all commitments made in service to God, the Father, the One within.
  15. You must obey the wisdom of God for the responsible and balanced procreation of your species.
  16. You must do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Also called “The Golden Rule”.
  17. Evil (adversaries of God) must always wear a sign of their evilness. (By their fruits you shall know them).
  18. You must not commit the act of slavery (physical or emotional) upon any human being of Creator God.
With the communion of the Spirit of Life within us, we must first wisely understand and follow the Laws of Balance, and secondly, we must wisely know where our responsibility begins and ends within the Creation upon this wonderful Planet Earth.

The first question to ask is how can I maintain my life in “harmony and balance” with the rest of “creation”? The answer is, you begin with the pure desire to know Truth. We must recognize that we are limited in our perception of Truth, and that God knows the best pathway for us to travel in His service. So we must then surrender our “will” (ego) to that which is God’s Will.

“In your daily prayer you must ask God for the loving Light of protection, guidance, power, wisdom, knowledge, truth, integrity and courage in order to best serve His Will and not your will (ego)”.

Then in our quiet corner we must meditate. We must listen. We must wait upon our Father-God who is within us (our God-Spirit) to give us that which we need to sustain us in His service. Our will and His Will must become one again.

Real Friends...

They love you,
but they are not your lover
They care for you, 
but they are not from your family
They are ready to share your pain, 
but they are not in your blood relation. 
They are........FRIENDS!!!!! 

True friend...... 
Scolds like a DAD.. 
Cares like a MOM.. 
Teases like a SISTER.. 
Irritates like a BROTHER.. 
And finally loves U more than a LOVER...

Roosterkoek – a necessity at every braai !

by nerinatimm in baked goods

Roosterkoek, it is hard to imagine a good old South African braai (BBQ) without it!

Roosterkoek forms such a big part of our South African culture, that more and more, I find them at festivals and markets ……. adorned with syrup, cheese, scrambled egg and bacon! Roosterkoek is literally pieces of bread dough that has been cooked on a grid over coals. 

Roosterkoek Recipe  (makes about 15 – 20)
  • 800 g flour
  • 5 ml salt
  • 5 ml sugar
  • 10 ml instant yeast
  • 30 ml olive oil
  • 500 ml lukewarm water
  • Place the flour, salt, sugar and yeast in a big glass or stainless steel bowl. Mix the olive oil and lukewarm water and while you mix the flour with your one hand, add the water bit-by-bit and keep mixing until you have a workable dough, not too dry and not too wet. If you need more water, add a little more. Knead for about 3 minutes, keep the dough in the bowl, cover with a cloth and allow the prove in a warm place in the kitchen. Once the dough has doubled in size, knead it down once more and then divide the dough into 15-20 even-sized buns.
  • Once your coals are ready, place the roosterkoek on the grid and slowly cook them on the one side, until you see grid marks and then only them over. If you tap on the roosterkoek with your finger and it has a hollow sound, they are ready to enjoy!
Favorite toppings for roosterkoek
- just butter (real butter)
- homemade apricot jam
- bacon and maple or golden syrup
- bacon and eggs
- cheese
- preserved fig and camembert

What Do Angels Look Like?

Like the little old lady
who returned
your wallet yesterday.
Like the taxi driver
who told you your eyes
light up the world
when you smile.

Like the small child
who showed you the wonder
in simple things.

Like the poor man
who offered to share
his lunch with you.

Like the rich man
who showed you
it really is all possible
if you believe.

Like the stranger
who just happened to come along,
when you had lost your way.

Like the friend
who touched your heart,
when you didn't think
you had one left to touch.

Angels come in all sizes and shapes,
all ages and skin types.

Some with freckles,
some with dimples,
some with wrinkles,
some without.

They come disguised as friends,
enemies, teachers, students,
lovers and fools.

They don't take life too seriously,
they always travel light.

They leave no forwarding address,
they ask for nothing in return.

They wear sneakers
with gossamer wings,
they get a deal on dry cleaning.

They are hard to find
when your eyes are closed,
but they are everywhere you look
when you choose to see.

~ Veronica M. Hay ~

Father, we thank thee for the night,
And for the pleasant morning light.
For rest and food and loving care,
And all that makes the day so fair.

To be to others kind and good,
In all we do, in all we say,
To grow more loving every day.
