When 24 hours in a day is not enough;
remember the mayonnaise jar.
A professor stood before his philosophy class
and had some items in front of him..
When the class began, wordlessly,
he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar
and start to fill it with golf balls.
He then asked the students if the jar was full.
They agreed that it was.
The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured
it into the jar. He shook the jar lightly.
The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls.
He then asked the students again
if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor next picked up a box of sand
and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else.
He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded
With an unanimous 'yes.'
The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table
and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively
filling the empty space between the sand.
The students laughed.
'Now,' said the professor, as the laughter subsided,
'I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life.
The golf balls are the important things - God, family,
children, health, friends, and favorite passions
Things that if everything else was lost
and only they remained, your life would still be full.
The pebbles are the things that matter like your job, house, and car.
The sand is everything else --
The small stuff.
'If you put the sand into the jar first,' he continued, 'there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, You will never have room for the things that are important to you.
Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Wholeheartedly worship your God
Play with your children.
Take time to get medical checkups.
Take your partner out to dinner.
There will always be time
to clean the house and fix the dripping tap.
'Take care of the golf balls first -- The things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.'
One of the students raised her hand
and inquired what the coffee represented.
The professor smiled.
'I'm glad you asked'.
It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem,
there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.'
Please share this with other "Golf Balls"

A Farmer was puzzled about the disappearance of some sheep on his farm. After a few weeks the farmer decided to put up an electric fence. About a week later, this is what he found!
Now, I know we've all heard of people being eaten by snakes. Well, this is a Python & they're extremely aggressive & have a few teeth that they use to hold their prey while they wrap around them & then constrict. Could you get away if this one bit you & held on with it's 'few teeth?'
(Note: The wires are 10 inches apart.)
Think of the snakes in Hell........... They will be more frightening that this...... Specially those who have not paid Zakat....
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "Whoever is made wealthy by Allah and does not pay the Zakat of his wealth, then on the Day of Resurrection his wealth will be made like a bald-headed poisonous male snake with two black spots over the eyes. The snake will encircle his neck and bite his cheeks and say, 'I am your wealth, I am your treasure.'" (Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 24, No.486)
this story was sent to me this morning by my friend Sameer from Canada.

I’m not a good reader nor a writer but I’m a good listener, especially with song lyrics, that’s why when I heard this song I couldn’t explain the emotions I felt.
You can say that I’m an EMO but this one is amazing, when I first listened to it I just focused on the tune and the instruments because this song I’m talking about is a Indonesian song which absolutely hard for me to understand.
The Music arrangers gave their best for the completion of this song and also to OPICK who delivered it very well.
The melody of the song is not boring bur others may find it really boring but for me I find it very peaceful and calming as if your sitting in a none polluted place away from the City’s noises. I saved this song in my Phone and every end of the day my battery’s phone get empty because I keep playing it over and over again.
If somebody can translate the meaning to me I really love to understand what’s the lyrics of the song.

We’ve know each other since 2004 when I started to join the organization of Women called Ittihadun Nisa, she’s one of the member who always laugh and not vain, we teamed up in every activity we like to eat and we like to watch movies,
Her name is Bailyn Mamokhan and His name is Moktar Palalisan, they’ve known each other for two years, I was their when they first met, I remember it was new year I and Bailyn went to North Cotabato to implement an activity, she was waiting for me in the Bus station and that was the day that she met Moktar. They got engaged before Ramadhan of this Year and got married after Ramadhan of the same year.
Before the wedding day, I and my other friends visited her for the last day of her being single, she’s nervous and kinda afraid she’s worried about her appearance on the day of her wedding but I know that she’ll be ok and all will be ok too. And Alhamdulillah on the day of the wedding as expected all went well.
Best Wishes to both of you.
