Everything is Temporary

Everything is Temporary

It takes a long time for me to grasp the scenario.
I felt a little more normal, when I thought of a human being.
We tend to grasp the position through materialistic race;
In going ahead with another; by ignoring our grace.
Everyone is different and suffer with situation;
Running behind the glitters to value their position;
During this Christmas season, we should recall Jesus' birth;
The Almighty came to our globe; Hut was his first dwelling place on this earth;
His stay in the hut was only temporary....

However, your position will only be temporary and for a short time;
The way you treat people will be remembered for the rest of your life.
Human behavior is unaffected by position;
Nevertheless, if fools attain authority, their behavior may become dissolute.
So, in order to be a good example to others,
Motivate yourself as a wonderful tutelage leader and human being......

    But Eternity is permanent either in Heaven or Hell. So better to do good works in life, store treasures in heaven and enjoy eternity so says following Bible verse, Matthew 6:19-20 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or steal;

    This is what a rich lady who died of cancer some time ago wrote: I have a brand new car parked outside that can't do anything for me. I have all kinds of designer clothes, shoes and bags that can't do anything for me. I have money in my account that can't do anything for me. I have a big well furnished house that can't do anything for me. Look, I am lying is a twin size hospital bed, I can take a plane any day of the week if I like, but it can't do anything for me. So, do not feel bad for the things you do not have. Most important thing in life is LOVE. Lastly, make sure you enjoy the ones you love and don't give up on them. They won't be there always and by the time you may need them, they might have gone to a different world. Dr.Maria Pais, this is your real down to earth poem on our life. Thank you.

    life itself is temporary. Here now, gone tomorrow. Thanks for reminding through your lovely poetry. Like Jesus, I was born in a cadjan jack once occupied by a sanyasi. After that I was always reminded and whenever I visited Mangaluru I made it a point to see it from a distance. Now it is gone, after being in existence for over a hundred years. It was also temporary. Even good things and riches do not last; we have to leave them all behind. Life is temporary. God bless you Maria.
