I always got fascinated visiting a Church. Yeah, right from nursery to my finished schooling, I happened to visit the school Church and kneeled down to pray to the cross and felt, Mother Mary with the baby Jesus so close to the heart. I visited almost all midnight mass during christmas and got the crib done and christmas tree decorated. Today, the small plant I bought has grown to a big Christmas tree and so holy that every kid in the library has fancied to decorate it.

I remember, we had a Confession Box and one of our sisters use to sit behind and encourage the sinner kid to confess her wrong doing. We had strong faith and we were taught moral science as a subject. This helped us in being nicer and believe in the power of the word of god. Even today, I stop by to listen pastor sermons on television shows late nights and somehow today, I happened to visit the Online Bible Radio produced by Like the preachings of Gita and the shlokes recites makes the surroundings holier, I feel the Bible readings are holier and daily messages to digest with chapter readings. This one year Bible reading Blog makes you read Bible in a year. I feel the Faith Gems by Robert Schuller are the best I ever come across and Daily Bread thats so much easier too.

Religion whatever may be, it's the Faith that always matter.

Right here waiting for you....! Is it? Well, this is the song that comes to my mind today as I remember this day, Richard Marx, the singer was born on 16th September 1963 (Chicago, Illinois) Most of his songs were ballads but he sang classic rock style too. With songs like "Don't Mean Nothing," "Should've Known Better," "Satisfied," and "Wait for the Sunrise." Marx placed himself in the record books by being the first solo artist to have his first seven singles hit the top 5 on the US charts.

Now, did I say that I have my own Radio Station [Listen to
Blossomsmile ilaxi's Radio Station
] that plays my very own favorite songs? Wanna listen my choice? Here is the link. You may request to play my songs or Today's Pop, western oldies, Reggae, Rap, whatever! Enjoy!

Once again, its 'Teachers' Day' and here we remember the great Teachers who changed the course of our life! I remember Sir Talati - the 'Hitler' man of Mount Carmel. His one shout and it was a 'freeze' - total pin drop silence on the mass drill ground covering up more than 2000 students! The more tougher he been, the more kinder his attitude - This I realized later when after whistling my way to tease around turned out to be a big punishment for me, standing out of the class for the whole day! Yeah, he caught me red handed whistling the boyish whistles during the recess hours and that punishment proved a lesson to the rest of the class. When my brother was summoned, he turned out to be an old friend and that's how Sir Talati became my personal Maths tutor, a hitler who taught me Maths! And here I am....still with memories of a teacher coz if he'd not taught me maths sums, I would got the big egg in my final 12th and not seen the college! well, well.....

Adams said " The teacher affects eternity. One can never tell where his or influence stops" Shower of Roses to all Teachers...May the Roses never fade so that the sweet fragrance fills your heart with pleasure and appreciation that you bloom like a flower throughout the year and spread sunshine into the lives of children.
