Don't Remain With Your Flaws

Most of us our limitations to back up mediocrities, foolishness and dance on the same spot. Most companies aim for the strongest, best grades, finest, talented and work espirence, but rarely have I heard of any company going after someone who knows his/her weakness and is ready to over come them. You will agree with me it's most of those whom people called "dumb/block" heads,who have excelled and invented different things in our world.

These are people whom like Mathew knew their weaknesses and were ready to work on them. Mathew the tax collector, ready to leave behind his old corrupt ways, became a great apostle of Jesus who even wrote the Gospel of the new testament. A call for us to know our weaknesses, work upon and God will take up from there.

You don't have to be worthy, but you need to be willing, remains one of the outstanding words of st Pius of Pietrelcina(Padre Pio). Though the apostles were unworthy, Jesus choose them and sent them on a mission, in to the foreign lands with no food nor money, but just a willing spirit with that willingness, though they encountered challenges and frustrations they emerged victorious. Padre Pio was unworthy, but with a willing spirit, was able to demonstrate love, charity and Jesus recognized him through stigmatisation ( bore the wounds of Jesus on his body), a gift only a few have had. We need not bear stigmas of wounds, but let our willing spirit to serve, undertake the mission of Christ to our efforts, greed and injustice, be our stigmas, now and forever.

This was on my daughters birthday and we decided to join some orphans in an orphanage and celebrate with them. Some friends and I offered them some school items and food items.

Thank you very Honorine for sharing this wonderful story. I applaud you for sharing what you with the orphans.

I love your slogan-"Every child matters." It is true, powerful and commendable. Please keep up the good work. More power to you.

Hello Honorine,
Thank you for sharing this great encouragement to step out of our littleness and push beyond our flaws to grow. Good on you for giving value and dignity to the little ones in the orphanage by including them in your daughter's birthday party. That is teaching your daughter to care, too.

Hello my dearest Nini, how are you dear, hope you are doing great. I'm OK. Yea Nini as you rightly said, some time it is good to make the children see the reality of these life, because they think that everything is find in the society and that all is well as life is concern. So I wanted her to see that all is not well as they think, that there are some people who actually need to be taken care of and some are looking for a daily bread. I needed her to start understanding some happenings in life.
I also appreciate the encouragement you gave me too.
Thanks so much Nini
Love you my sis
