A Net of Love


What is joy?

Joy is a noun.

A noun that describes the feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

As quoted by Mother Teresa,

Joy is prayer

Joy is strength

Joy is love

Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls

A lovely soul, Yoshiko is so kind to share with us her favourite Christmas song during this year and thus making this post possible.

Joy to the WorldĀ is a popular American Christmas song which emphasizes theĀ reverent but ecstatic joy that Christ’s birth brought to humanity.The text was originally titled “The Messiah’s Coming and Kingdom” when it first appeared in a hymnal of 1719 by Isaac Watts but only the second half of Watt’s lyrics are still used today.

The music for this popular carol is thought to have been adapted by Lowell Mason, an American church musician, from some of the phrases used in parts of George Frederick Handel’s beloved oratorio.

As of the late 20th century, “Joy to the World” was the most-published Christmas hymn in North America.

In the 1970s, there is a different song of the same title, popularized by the pop groupĀ Three Dog Night.Ā The song is also popularly known by its opening words, “Jeremiah was a bullfrog”.Ā 

The song, which has been described by members of Three Dog Night as a “kid’s song” and a “silly song”, topped the main singles charts in North America.

ThisĀ resulted in occasional recordings in which the pop song’s lyrics and melody were combined with that of the carol.

Information extracted from:

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,

but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

~Ā ThĆ­ch Nhįŗ„t Hįŗ”nh

Let us not go around looking for happiness or joy since it is not something to be found but a source within us awaiting to be spread around.

Furthermore, just like what Mother Teresa said, joy is a net of love which can catch souls, well this may sound a little funny but I do sincerely hope all lovely souls out there who are now reading this post to be caught by it…hehehe…

Before ending this post, here’s the song by the Three Dog Night to share with all you lovely souls out there:

Joy to the world.

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ šŸ˜€

All Things Wise And Beautifulā€¦(3)


Clouds N Cups, Be With Us

Happy Monday to all lovely souls out there!

It has been a while since our last post(s) in both of our blogs.

No worries, I am still around to blog and sell.

However, if youā€™ve been visiting our humble blogs and online shop, you may notice that there isnā€™t any much blog updating or new product listings during the past few weeks.

This is mainly due to my recent relapse and thus I was not able to do much but to rest.

I am not sure how long it will take for the pain to go away, but as long as I am able to sit up straight (like now), I will continue with my reading, blogging and selling.

Thank you so much for being with us despite all the slow update.

ā¤ Muahk!!! ā¤

Today, instead of colourful flowers, letā€™s go green by sharing 10 cactus photos from Lovableā€¦

Try To Remember, If You Remember, Then Follow…


Happy September to all lovely souls out there!

A lovely song to share with you lovely souls during this beautiful month

TRY TO REMEMBER by Jerry Orbach

But before hitting the play button,

here are some of the lines (not in sequences) in thisĀ song lyrics that I really love:

Try to remember when life was so tender

That no one wept except the willow.

Try to remember when life was so tender

That dreams were kept beside your pillow.

It’s nice to remember without a hurt the heart is hollow.

Try to remember, and if you remember,

Then follow.

The version that I am going to share with you lovely souls is the one sung by Patti Page (a version in 1965 on her album Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte.)

Remember even though the outside world might be raining,

if you keep on smiling the sun will soon show its face and smile back at you.

Anna Lee

Once again,

Have a wonderful September and may this month be filled beautiful memories waiting to be created and remembered!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN ~ šŸ˜€

Which Chapter Are You At Right Now?


During a sharing session that I’ve attended during last Saturday, someone shared this very inspiring poem written by Portia Nelson.

Since it is such an inspiring and enlightening poem, I would love to take this opportunity to share with all you lovely souls out there who have been with us in this post after our recent long silence:

Autobiography In Five Short Chapters

Portia Nelson

*****

Chapter 1

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I fall in. I am lostā€¦.I am helpless.

It isnā€™t my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.

*****

Chapter 2

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the side walk.

I pretend I donā€™t see it.

I fall in again.

I canā€™t believe I am in the same place.

But it isnā€™t my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

*****

Chapter 3

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there.

I fall inā€¦itā€™s a habitā€¦but my eyes are open.

I know where I am.

It is my fault.

I get out immediately.

*****

Chapter 4

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.

*****

Chapter 5

I walk down a different street.

Ahhh…those darn deep holes in our life…do they sound like a familiar place to you?

I’ve fallen, many times before, without knowing

I’ve fallen, many more times before, knowing very clearly that I would need to get out via the hard way

Those were done during my younger days. thinking that I still have many days ahead to waste

At this stage of my life

I might need to fall into them a few more times, without knowing

But I need to get rid of this bad habit, so that I can walk around them with my head held high

For getting rid of this bad habit may make me wiser than before

Wise enough to help myself discover many more streets to walk down

Before ending this post, this is a soundtrack from the movie “Evita” (one of the few movies that I had watched in cinemas) to share with you lovely soul out there.

I simply love the tune of this song and though the lyrics sounded really sad, it is also very enlightening as well.

May you lovely souls enjoy the poem and song that we’ve shared in this post.

Have a lovely Monday and a great week ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ šŸ˜€
