A Godly punchline!

Sometimes the most awesome truths just blurt out of my mouth and I wonder where it came from. Divine intervention!!We were at a family get-together. As we were still the newly married couple (self proclaimed!) B and me were the center of attention. A rather tricky question was thrown at me: “So Jeyanth, when it all started, who made the choice first? Did you choose B or did B choose you?”.The answer came out in 0.00026 seconds!“Actually…. God chose us first!“Blink of an eye and an awesome truth dawned on everyone.Such words of wisdom inspire me to write a new book on Christian Punchlines! Wish me all the best!!

Incredibly ambitious, Incredibly spacious and Incredibly ‘God’ious

(Warning: Incredibly long blog entry coming up!)It all started off as an inkling of a thought all the way at the back of our heads when my dad lent his Maruti800 to us for 3 months. I discovered that I could actually drive it. Soon the luxury of 4 wheels sank in and 2 wheels (aka my Kinetic Honda) started gathering dust and risked becoming obsolete. Could we actually buy a new car? The research and calculations started. Unfortunately car companies seem to be producing more new cars everyday! We started off with a Santro in mind and naturally the i10 appealed more – almost clinched it for us once the i10 kappa range rolled out. Er… how about the…

Everlasting God

After weeks of postponing and very little practice Becky and I gave a special song at church today – “Everlasting God” (originally by Brenton Brown).The song was special to the two of us as it was the first song we had ever sung together. You can see me blog about that by clicking hereThe song was a blessing to the congregation and it also encouraged Becky and Me to take more active part in church and ministry – something we have not been doing very well!Click here if you would like to see Brenton Brown talk about what inspired him to write the song “Everlasting God” and teach you how to play the song on the guitar. Hope you are…

1000 kilometers, 1 week, 2 cancelled tickets

That how much distance Becky covered. And 640 of those kilometers were done in 24 hours – to Chennai and back! The 6 days without her saw me missing her like crazy, but neatly packed cooked food in the refrigerator and constant phonecalls ensures my body, mind and soul never went hungry. Once again we were grateful to God for protectionon the roads and the rails (especially after the series of bomb-blasts in ahmedabad etc). Luckily I am not on duty this weekend and we can catch up on the rest we both need.

… and God created woman!

I received this little snippet today and felt it was blogworthy.“The woman came out of a man’s rib – not from his feet to be walked on, not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal, under his arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved.”… and guess who I was thinking of when I read the last bit!

Bengaluru

After the incident-prone trip to Bangalore, the rest of the time turned out to be awesome!Hephzibah had planned out a lot of stuff well. Sunday morning saw us in church. and after that we were stuffing up hot chocolate doughnuts, mint coffee and more down our throats before we came back home.The kids then went crazy in the balcony till we were all breathless – I must have lost 20 years playing with them and becoming a kid myself!Lunch was an elaborate affair and the afternoon saw us resting. The evening and night was a time of catching up and yak-yakking as we traded all kinds of stories before we crashed out for the night.Monday saw us at the mall…

Stranded …. almost

Trichy – Karur – Namakkal – Dharamapuri – Krishnagiri – Salem – Hosur – Bangalore . 8 hours. An air-conditioned KPN volvo busThat was the combination and everything seemed set for a great weekend at Bangalore with my cousins and their 2 children. The hissing started at Krishnagiri (Don’t worry – this is not the Snakes on the Bus sequel to a famous movie!) and soon we were parked on the side of the road surrounded by trees and fields with the conductor underneath the bus and the driver on his mobile. After nearly an hour they decided that the bus was ride-worthy and we made it to Salem where they had a team ready to check out the huge…

640 kilometers

A cricket match, 400 meter sprint, lime soda at FSM, 2 nights on the bus, 640 kilometers, a home-check, Ashraya, a ride to locate Mr. Ayyappan, a wedding reception, 2 hours through congested chennai roads, a mad rush to the bus stop (made miraculously easy in a luxury bus) and back to Trichy – that sums up the weekend. My age finally seems to be catching up – I have vague body pains and actually felt a little tired when I was at work today. A few hours of extra sleep in the afternoon and I was back in form, just waiting for Becky to join me tomorrow – that will spruce me up big time!Wonder how God gives humans…

Kumarakom cruise

Vacation time!! Finally Becky and I were on the train to Kottayam and were picked up at the station by a cab and late in the morning we reached Kumarakom – the enchanting backwaters of Kerala. What followed was an amazing mixture of luxury, a feeling of royalty, merging one with nature and hours of just ogling at nature. Imagine 28 cottages spread over 17 acres of garden, canals and bridges. And then imagine – we were the only people there. We were treated like royalty! The cottages were quaint, the gardens lush green (in the middle of summer!) and the pool inviting. We felt like a King and a Queen with people to serve us food of our choice,…
