Hark! The Herald Angels Sing (Advent: Day 18)

Simply Persuaded

A few years ago, Prince William and Kate had their first baby Prince George. You may have heard the Town Crier on the news shouting at the top of his lungs, “Hear ye! Hear ye!” He was announcing the royal birth.

“The birth of the royal baby had been followed around the world. In America, rolling news channels devoted their coverage to the birth, while Australia prime minister Kevin Rudd sent his country’s warmest regards to the family.” (Prince George is said to be the eighth British monarch that has descended from Queen Victoria.)

The Guardian

There was no “Town Crier” announcing Jesus’ royal birth. Instead it was a heavenly host!

And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you…

Plastic’s Broken Promise


At Orion Magazine, as part of its series “on the effects of the petrochemical industry on life, economics, and democracy,” David Farrier reflects on gloves and their medical history, as well as the strange beauty and environmental cost of cast-off plastic gloves — now oft-sighted street detritus that have become a requirement for many to survive amid the pandemic.

In late March, around the same time I first noticed the gloves outside my house, photographer Dan Giannopoulos was pondering how to document life under lockdown. After the order to isolate was issued, he didn’t leave home for several days, and when he finally stepped out his front door he was immediately confronted, like I was, by a lone discarded glove. He noticed more and more as he approached his local shop, and over the next four days—walking for an hour each day within the same one-mile radius of where…

An Unexpected Pregnancy

Nothing New Under the Sun

“Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”

Matthew 1:18-22

When Mary told the angel Gabriel that she accepted God’s will for her to bear the Son of God, the long-awaited Messiah, she received no information as to…

Unconditioned childhood memories… to be cont.



Hope everyone is fine & enjoying their lives in a full swing as the child do by taking pleasure in small things.😇

Let’s dive together in some childhood memories…😍😇

It was the time when fairytales appeared more fair, magic was not at all an illusion rather it was more entrancing to the soul, reality was far away from reality checks…..

Because rest of us was still undefined…..

Taking pleasure in all the small things was enough to make our day.. right from putting the efforts in blowing the paper boats to making the paper aeroplanes fly, secretive creatures, complicated quirks were far from existence for the kind soul…

Because rest of us was still undefined…

Only time when insanity was not only just permitted to us, but expected 😜everyone poured it’s efforts in encouraging us, giving wings to follow our dream….

Because rest of us was still undefined…
