Bruised

My heart is bruised tonight.
Aunty Maya went to see Aunty Premlata in hospital with another caring Christian lady Aunty Noreen. Aunty M is close to Aunt P 's age, late 60s and has several ailments but she really had to see her.They have grown up together.
Aunty Maya called me up and told me Aunty P cried when she saw her.She was in a pathetic condition. Aunty Maya gave her 2 house dresses and a box of health drink powder. The other lady took a bottle of Horlicks.They stayed with her for over 2 hours.
Aunty Maya knew some nurses there and spoke to them about Aunt P.Her daughter is not feeding her properly so she asked the nurses to put her on the hospital food list. Nurse Joseph has arranged for her to get free medicines.
I get emotionally disturbed when I see the suffering of people.It also makes me angry. I feel helpless...dejected.I lost patience when Sybil Aunty fussed over dinner.I was sad when I saw a mother treating her 8 year old daughter too harshly over a childish error - children 's hearts are tender they should be treated with care.
I say to my Mom sometimes ; if this is not the great tribulation period then what is it? I know my theology is topsy turvey here.
Tomorrow is Palm Sunday. Jesus wept over the hard heart of Jerusalem.I cannot wave my palm branch and not cry.
Please pray for Premlata and for the salvation of Shaloo and Bunty.
God can do miracles.

Poor dear.

Father God, we lift up Premlata to you for help and healing. Comfort her while she's in this awful state and move on the hearts of the family members who don't know you. Open their eyes to the truth of Jesus. We pray that You would be the lifter of Amrita's head. Thank You Lord, in Jesus' name, amen.

Dear Amrita,
Thanks for all supportive words,

Ios is still not doing well, but she moved more than last 2 days. Ate 1 piece of food and drun a lot... she did not want to play, with anything, she 's sleeping 'a hole in the day/night'

I am still wondering whats going on with my dog, Yes ... I will do a check-up on MONDAY as soon as possible, I stayed up all night but felt asleep beside her in the livingroom, went upstairs to my own bed, with all doors wide open in the house. I could hear every movement.

In the morning she was looking at me, with eyes wide open, but I think she is feeling (maybe?) a bit better. Lets hope for the best!

THANKS for your sweet words.
JoAnn

Oh dear heart. How said a cause for her children to be so heartless. It is so good that those ladies stopped by for her.
Be embraced.
