Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I thank all of you friends and folks for your warm New Year wishes and visiting my blog. On this first of a new year 2008 I pray that all of us lead a happy, peaceful and prosperous life all year round. I just found a poem by English Poet Lord Tennyson about embracing a new year. I just want to share it with all of you.

Ring Out, Wild Bells
Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809 - 1892)

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more,
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the want, the care the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkenss of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

Once again have a great new year!

Hello friends, here I am again. So how was your Christmas parties and celebration? I had a great time with friends and family. I did have a bad hangover on the following day. I had to take lime water and mild meal to get rid of the of the hangover. I have been planning to spend my New Year's Eve on Las Vegas, but I don't think we could make it out. The clubs and the restaurants must have already reserved and we would likely have to spend the night on the roads watching the fireworks. It can be fun though hopping here and there and cheering with the crowd for the New Year. Let's see what happens. It would not be less fun if I am in Boston and hit the discos or pubs. Moreover, I can be with my parents in the afternoon.

Anyways, Happy New Year to all of you. I wish everyone of you have a nice, prosperous New Year 2008.

Last Minute Christmas Gift ideas

Are you rushing here and there to buy the last minute Christmas gifts? Have you missed buying gifts for anyone and now frantically looking for the perfect gift in the last minute? First and foremost, don't get panic-stricken. Sit calmly and jot down what gift you can buy easily within this weekend. To decide about the gifts, one can check the online stores which will supply the Christmas gifts to your near ones till tomorrow or Christmas Eve even ordering at a short notice.

Gourmet baskets, a high capacity UPS, handbags, photo frames, gift certificates can be a good last minute Christmas gifts options as they are easily available. If there is really isn't way out there, then what about making a gift basket yourself. Usually cookies and chocolates are in store in most of the homes, so you can decorate a gift basket full of cookies and chocolates and give them to your friends. If you are still confused about what to give, then Christmas flowers bouquet can be an option. Collect the seasonal flowers like hyacinth, tulip, narcissus, poinsettia and present them with a big smile and wish your near ones a very Merry Christmas. After all, it's the thoughts that matters.

Here is a nice Christmas song "This Christmas" by Chris Brown. Let's watch it.

Christmas words

Christmas PrayersThere has been a a criticism of Christmas celebrations are becoming highly materialistic in nature and the true meaning of Christmas is lost. There is only exchange of gift rather the warmth of compassion, sending of cards perfunctorily rather than out of love, hosting Christmas parties instead of reaching out the hands of help to the unprivileged ones. I just read few stories in GatewaytoJesus which is actually not a story but first hand accounts of some people who realized that there are angels on this earth. One of the story is about a mother of six who had been a state of misery and poverty and has to go through much difficulties to earn the livelihood. Christmas was just round the corner and the mother had almost no money to buy gifts for the children. She managed to arrange some old toys which she painted and decided to give the children as Christmas gifts. Miraculously on the night of Christmas Eve, while returning home from her work, she found her car loaded with Christmas presents, food and clothes for her family! Indeed, there are angels beside us who take care of us but we don't see them all the time.
I was surfing the net and found some nice Christmas prayers that I would like to share with all of you.

Max Lucado

Heavenly Father, thank you for sending your Son to earth as a baby so many years ago. Thank you that He paid the punishment for my sins by dying on the cross. And thank you that He rose again to prove that death was truly defeated. I place my trust in You to be my Savior. Guide me through the dark times of my life and give me courage to live for You. Amen

for the gift of Your love.
May I be a shining
example of that love to others.
