Sunday Blessings -Visitors

Although Saturday morning was grey and rainy, the sun broke through with a surprise call from a friend from Canada. We have been visiting each other 's blogs and she has been such a blessing to me and now it was wonderful to visit by phone. I felt we are like next door neighbours.No matter how far we live from each other and how varied our cultures may be, when God 's Spirit dwells in us become one family in Christ.

We had many visitors this weekend.A Pastor from a local church, a young missionary couple and their daughter from Varanasi and an engineering professor and his doctor wife.
After church today a doctor intern from the Medical College and her friend who is a doctor in the Leprosy Mission Hospital also dropped by.
But early in the morning we had these herons swooping down looking for breakfast insects and frogs in the grass. But Sheeba the huntress chased them away after a while, afraid they would take over her territory.

Yesterday I got my Unlimited Internet connection. Which means I don 't have to pay for each page I open.This is worth the money.
From tomorrow 6 year old Sinran will come each evening for school work. She has started going to a new school and has to be tutored in her new syllabus.Mama and I will help this child for free.

I have a new template and the transfer was only possible with the help of my dear sister in Christ, Carol-Ann. A BIG THANK YOU TO YOU CAROL-ANN. without your help Cinderella 's pumpkin would have simply remained a common garden variety...instead of being transforned into a Porsche. LOL
Thank you for praying for Cole.

I got this from Terry 's blog. They took samples for biospy and the results will come on July 31st. His liver doesn 't look good the doctors said. We have to keep praying for this precious child.

This week the Lord impressed upon my heart lessons about self-denial, taking up my cross and following Him and shunning the attractions of the world and the pride of life.

15 Fertilize my soul:

Lord Bless

Big smile, Amrita!

I must confess I was signed in to your template and took a break to visit some blogs. As far as I know, Jeanette's blog was the only one I left a comment on as "Amrita" but if you get some strange remarks about comments you left somewhere, I'll take full responsibility!

Blessings to you, my friend!

Hi Amrita,
You have had a very busy day with blessings pouring down on you. Yes, the Lord said, "If anyone would come after Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow Me." (Luke 9:23)We must go where the Lord wants us to go and do what He wants us to do. That is the life of a disciple who have hearken to the call of the Lord. Thanks for the beautiful post. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Dear Amrita,
I came to remember this wonderful verse from the Hebrews:

Hebrews 13

1Keep on loving each other as brothers. 2Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

Think you have got a Canadian angle visitor?

Hi Amrita! I wondered if I did not see Carol-Ann's fingerprints on your blog, especially when she left a comment on my blog under your name!!

Blessings on you and your mom as you tutor Sinran! I am sure she will love this time with you.

Good Evening Sis,
The Folks just left. It is ?Dove birthday today. they had evening meal with us, and cake. Mr U and I have been working on a chicken coop all day and have gotten little progress. More supply has come in to us. Wood for free will help keep the cost down.
The folks had the sweet thank you letter you sent to them. The hand writing was like having you next to me. Touching your hand.
The herons are so pretty.
It will be a full week of Volley ball lessons. The email came to offer The kids FREE lessons at the church. They are an $80. value! So I receive with joy!
Dove's all better now and the kids are tired after a full week end of events, and guests here.
The folks gave us some old lumber and we are able to us all of it on the coop. I have to get the chickens from the lady before next week end. We will take 10 birds . They are young now so we can get them imprinted to the family. They will lay eggs after a while and keep us in eggs with extra to sell for the seed costs. I think it will work out well.

Dear Amrita,
I must say you have had a hectic weekend but with lots of blessings and visitor. I am here to say - I love your new template. Its fantastic!

Terry said...

Good morning Amrita!
After reading this post and seeing the ending , it is beyond me how you can deny yourself much more. As far as I can see you are one person who seems to be using almost all her time and strength for others, an encouragement to God's children, praying for them, working for them. I am sure that the Lord is so pleased with Amrita.
You are a true and faithful servant...That's all I have to say...Love Terry
