Wedding


These are some pictures my niece Mahima took last summer of a wedding
procession passing by our house.the first one is the music cart. The musicians ride on this vehicle.The other two are wedding lights. The groom either rides a horse or comes in a beautifully decorated car.

Yesterday 's wedding was nice with flashy clothes, color, music, crowds of people and spicy food.
I like nans most of all.The bridegroom came at 10pm seated on a horse. We didn 't stay for the ceremony as it was too late.
Reminds me of the story of the 10 virgins told by Jesus.
The wise virgins had the oil in their lamps to welcome the bridegroom but the foolish ones neglected to fill
lamps with oil
missing out entry into the wedding festivities. I have to be filled with the oil of the Holy Spirit, living as a true Christian so that when Jesus, the bridegroom comes to take me away He may not find me dry and faithless.
What excitement will be there when we join together for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.The grandest feast of all time and space.Are you ready for Him?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PHUPEE
Yesterday was Aunt Sybil 's 86th birthday. She is not well so we did n't have a celebration.
It was so sweet.Sunila came to greet her and said, "Happy birthday Phupee "(father 's sister) and Phupee promptly replied,"Same to you Sunila".
