Oh! Lord My Jesus! Creator of this world
Thee have blessed me with birth to live good and bold
Let me be a good Christian and follow
All Thy teachings and preaching- not shallow!

Yes that is what I pray on this holy day GOOD FRIDAY nineteenth April
Not indeeda GOOD Friday but an event sad and bleak but the day
Remembering a day of suffering and death for Jesus. a crucial day
Of the year.The death of Jesus and his soul was raised,
The cross and resurrection of Jesus turning point for all creation.
Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and then again raised to life
On the very third day following the divine promises.
Love all serve all, help ever hurt never-He lived and guides us!

Image result for national stress awareness day 2019

Stress and strain part of our life-age and employment, wealth and health
Have little to impact-negative or positive, negative and positive! a paradox!
What stress can do can be experienced- more important is to be aware of stress
And the ways to be away from or not to fall a victim to stress!

Today April sixteenth is National Stress Awareness Day. The day
Designed by the Health Resource Network in nineteen ninety two to raise
Awareness of stress. Day is a chance to take a deep breath and relax.
Stress has a negative effect on the immune system -research has proved.

Chronic stress takes greater toll on our body than acute stress.
Raises blood pressure, increases the risk of heart attack and stroke,
Anxiety and depression, hastens the aging process.
Stress is one omnipresent
Easily coped sure by the competent
On the body and on the mind
On the soul and on the intellect
Age and sex, wealth and status
Stress of-course has little respect!

Faith in God, self and people
Fair to all with love and scruple
Thoughts noble and deeds worthy
Happy hobbies and habits healthy
Yoga sure a medicine for stress
Love for nature, animals and people
Through stress and strain nothing can topple!

பழுத்த கருத்துக்களைப் பரவச் செய்யும்
அழுத்தமான வாழ்வு நம்மை அலங்கரிக்கும்!

விகாரி ஆண்டு விகார எண்ணங்களை
விரட்டி அடிக்கும்!
பலகால நட்பதனை நாடச் செய்யும்
வருங்காலச் சிறப்பதனைக் கூட்டுவிக்கும்!
விகாரி ஆண்டதனைக் கை கூப்பி
வரவேற்போம்! வாய் நிறைய வாழ்த்திடுவோம்!

வண்ண வண்ணக் கோலமிட்டு
வாயிலிலே காத்திருப்போம்!
விகாரியே வருக! விருந்தாக அமைந்திடுக!
