Habakkuk 3;17

Its one those Hab 3;17 days. I am feeling low physically and emotionally, but the fact is the God loves me and I will rejoice in that.
Today my theme song could be"Stop the World and let me Down"

On Monday I went to see Aunt P in hospital.Miserable condition she is in.They had put a plaster on. Today she was put on traction for her broken hip.Daughter and SIL are such brutes...that 's a very decent way to describe them. Actually the SIL is better , he 's close to being a human, daughter is not. I encouraged the SIL to take care of Aunty and not neglect his family responsibilities.He was complaining about his wife, she is a sloppy housewife apart from other things.I agree with him.
How can you counsel a person who is far from being a human being?
In the nurses station I met a nurse who my Mom had taught. Sister Paul immediately recognized me and said she had seen me playing my guitar and singing in various churches (thank you Jesus). My Mom was her teacher in HS and she used to counsel her about spiritual matters.
She was very warm towards me. I told her to keep an eye on Aunt P and gave her an extra hug.I talked to other people in the ward. Tried to garner their help for this poor lady.She has to be there for 2 weeks.
On Monday evening we had our All City Prayer meeting.I played my guitar for worship time.It was good. We had a short Bible study from 2 Pet 1. Three young men from the US who are studying Hindi here also came.Two of them were in my BS group. My cousin brother is the co-director of the language school where they are studying.

Yesterday and today I just stayed home. Have a lot to do.I have posted pictures of our flowers to give this post a cheery look.

Now I 'll just go and watch some TV with my mother.I am reading Dwight Pentecost"s book "Man 's Problems and God 's answers" Its really good.
I am making lots of tomato sauce. Once the jars are done I 'll show them to you. I also made mixed vegetable pickle...its spicy.

13 Fertilize my soul:

awww - *hug* Praying for Aunt P and that the joy of the Lord would be your strength. It's good she has you to be an advocate for her and that you even saw the fruit of your mom's labor at the hospital. How encouraging! I'd love to hear you play your guitar. Those blossoms are outstanding! Blessings to you today.

You know, it can be really hard to accept the fact that you can't do or say anything to change some people. I hope your Aunt will get good care. Your roses are fantastic! I'm starting to look forward to gardening again!

You play the guitar as well as everything else? You are a superstar!

Sounds like a day of rest is in order for both of us. I am so glad to hear of your contact at the hospital for Aunt P. Peace be with you my friend. May you be refreshed.

I know that you are truly busy and really tired Amrita, but please take a few moments and head on down to the Pilgrim Pals and see the beautiful rose pictures we have....Hmmm...To you they might look familiar!! from a fellow pilgrim..Terry

Jeanette said...

You have gorgeous flowers, Amrita, and I know my mouth will begin watering when I see the promised pictures of the tomato sauce! I have days when I am down, too, so I know what it feels like. I pray that the Lord will lift up your spirit.

We can really feel the diversity of life when we read your can do so many things at the same time and most importantly the self-belief and the strength you carry along is amazing, which I believe really spreads to everyone, who reads your posts...they are really inspiring...may the Lord be with you always by your side...some very beautifully captured shots too. I simply love the last one....have a wonderful time!

I'm having one of those Habakkuk 3:17 days, too. My husband was suppose to come home tomorrow. (He's been 1000 miles away in another state working for 1 1/2 months.) But today, the van he is driving decided to die. It's our only vehicle. So, he will probably have to stay down there, find another van to buy, and will have to work longer to pay for the van. But that's okay, because God is in control. Our van should have been replaced a year ago. So, maybe this is God's way of helping us to get a new one. It's always an adventure here on earth. I'm looking forward to my home in heaven.

You and your aunt are in my prayers. I have Habakkuk 3:17 days too.

You have a fascinating blog; lovely photos and all. I can tomatoes, but haven't aspired to sauce yet. I look forward to pics.

God bless.
