SUBMIT TO THE POTTER’S HANDS – Beauty For Ashes

We are healed so we can comfort others

A couple went into an antique shop one day and found a beautiful teacup sitting on a shelf.

They took it off the shelf, so they could look at it more closely, and said, “We really want to buy this gorgeous cup.”

All of the sudden, the teacup began to talk, saying, “I wasn’t always like this. There was a time when I was just a cold, hard, colorless lump of clay.”

One day my master picked me up and said, “I could do something with this.” Then he started to pat me, and roll me, and change my shape.

I said, “What are you doing? That hurts. I don’t know if I want to look like this! Stop!”

But he said, “Not yet.”

Then he put me on a wheel and began to spin me around and around and around, until I screamed, “Let me off, I am getting dizzy!”

“Not yet,” he said.

Then he shaped me into a cup and put me in a hot oven. I cried, “Let me out! It’s hot in here, I am suffocating.”

But he just looked at me through that little glass window and smiled and said, “Not yet.”

When he took me out, I thought his work on me was over, but then he started to paint me. I couldn’t believe what he did next.

He put me back into the oven, and I said, “You have to believe me, I can’t stand this! Please let me out!”

But he said, “Not yet.”

Finally, he took me out of the oven and set me up on a shelf where I thought he had forgotten me.

Then one day he took me off the shelf and held me before a mirror.

I couldn’t believe my eyes, I had become a beautiful teacup that everyone wants to buy.

God knows what He’s doing for each of us. He is the potter, and we are His clay.  He will mold us and make us, and expose us to just enough pressures of just the right kinds that we may be made into a flawless piece of work to fulfill His good, pleasing and perfect will.

Love this “Peo…

Love this
“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”

― Mother Teresa

Chimes striking the hunger cords

A lovely little neat live cooking restaurant in the heart of Barsha,with courteous staff to take care of you, what I loved that we were helped to choose what to eat when we were about to order a wrong dish, we were asked if we loved raw food, which really helped us pick the food we wanted to eat
Must try the Pecking Duck, a generous portion crispy on the outside tender on the inside very delicious, we also ordered Green Papaya Salad, lovely tangy flavors for our mains we ordered  Prawn Red Thai Curry, with steamed rice, the Thai curry was just too good the way we love it. the two refreshing drinks that was all.
We were so full that we had to take away & had no room for dessert lolzz
but would love to go back to try some more food 🙂
