Heavy CROSS?

Whatever your cross,Whatever your pain,
There will always be sunshine,

After the rain...
Perhaps you may stumble,Perhaps even fall,

But God's always ready,
To answer your call...

He knows every heartache,Sees every tear,
A word from His lips,

Can calm every fear...
Your sorrows may linger,Throughout the night,

But suddenly vanish,

In dawn's early light...
The Savior is waiting,Somewhere above,

To give you His grace,

And send you His love...
Whatever your cross,Whatever your pain,

"God always sends rainbows...
After the rain...”

The Shortest Man in the World — Chandra Bahadur Dangi

Chandra Bahadur Dangi (born on November 30, 1939) is the shortest man in the world, measuring 0.546 m (1 ft 9 in). Dangi is a primordial dwarf. He broke the record of Gul Mohammed (1957-1997), the shortest adult human whose height was 0.5715 m (1 ft 11 in). Chandra came to news highlights of local media when a wood contractor saw him in his village. All of his family members are of usual size.
 He was awarded the title of Shortest adult human ever recorded after measuring his height three times in 24 hours. The chief editor of Guinness Book of World Records said that Chandra is the only person in Guinness' 57 years history to record the title of the shortest man at the age of 73. Dangi lives with his nephews in a remote village of Nepal which is some 400 km away from the country's capital. He wishes to travel all parts of his country and the world. He stated that with him being the shortest man of the world and belonging to Nepal, he wants to popularize his village and his country through the medium of this title. 

In 2012, he met the world’s shortest woman, Jyoti Amge of Nagpur, India. The pair posed together for the 57th edition of the Guinness World Records 2013. It is currently unknown what medical condition has restricted Dangi’s height.

Inca Girl — Frozen For 500 Years

 Inca Girl — Frozen For 500 Years, Now On Display SALTA, Argentina — The maiden, the boy, the girl of 
lightning: they were three Inca children, entombed on a bleak and frigid mountaintop 500 years ago as a religious sacrifice…Unearthed in 1999 from the 22,000-foot summit of Mount Llullaillaco, a volcano 300 miles west of here near the Chilean border, their frozen bodies were among the best preserved mummies ever found, with internal organs intact, blood still present in the heart and lungs, and skin and facial features mostly unscathed. No special effort had been made to preserve them. The cold and the dry, thin air did all the work. They froze to death as they slept, and 500 years later still looked like sleeping children, not mummies.

Scientists examine a 15-year-old girl who lived in the Inca Empire, then was sacrificed and remained    frozen for 500 years

A scientist carefully extracts a hair from the sacrificial victim known as the “Llullaillaco Maiden,” in a labroom that is kept at a constant freezing temperature

The Llullaillaco Maiden’s new acrylic burial chamber is maintained at 0 degrees Farenheit

The excavation of the mummies at the mountain’s peak was the world’s highest archaeological dig, according to anthropologist Johan Reinhard.
