Sunday Blessings ;On Christ the Solid Rock I Stand All Other Ground Is Sinking Sand

I was trapped in the Slough of Despond


But the Lord drew me out and satisfied me with His goodness.

Thank you friends for praying for me and sending me encouraging words.God has been good to me in helping me work through my tangled emotions.

On Saturday 3 Christian fellowship families visited us at different times of the day.And just chatting with them and having coffee and cookies together was like a healing balm. Everyone likes the coffee I make, its no magic, just the Nescafe ' instant. One of the army wives brought her 20 month old son along and I am like a grandma to the tyke.A real confidence builder!

Had a long talk with my sister and BIL in New Brunswick and they also comforted me, shared their experiences and asked me to be patient.I am feeling so much better now.

For lunch today I made a pan chicken roast with chicken rice, Dal ,poppadoms, yogurt , chapatis etc.And for supper I will make a banana stir fry with fresh coconut.

Today there is a Hindu religious street carnival (pre Dushshera mela) in one part of the city. But the sky is overcast . Hope the rain doesn 't spoil the fun.Our groundskeeper left early as he has to set up a road-side stall of games and toys for his landlord.
Mom has anounced that she going to watch the finals of Indian Idol tonight.The fight is between two young men from North East India.

16 Fertilize my soul:

I am so glad of the good comforts and fellowships given to you. I did not get your e-mail however I did get the comment. I am so glad Daddy man was able to help. It is amazing that we are over 8000 miles on earth away and only a breadth away in Him. I like that.

I am glad to read that you are feeling a bit better......but don't rush things..wounds take time to heal, both in the natural and the spiritual..take extra special care of yourself in the next few days....do some things that bring healing to your soul......for me that would mean listening to some sorts of music, or walking by the sea or going to look at my favourite cows (I know, that is nutty!!) for you, I don't know, but go for it anyway!
