Sparkles in The Sonshine

Dear  friends I 've  been  so  busy
these  last  few  days  I  have  not
 been  able  to  update  my  blog.
Its  midnight  here  and I am 
composing  this  post  after  a  full
and  somewhat  tiring   day.
Ashish  and  Megan  have  come  to  me  as  rays  of 
Sonshine.
They  have  brought  laughter  and  youthfulness
to  me, which I 
miss   so  much.
Its   so  refreshing  to  laugh
with  someone an d listen
to  them laughing
and  enjoying themselves.
I  will  share  our  daily  experiences 
and  photos.
I  want  to  welcome
Megan's  friends and  all
new  visitors who
have  stopped  by  to  visit
Yesu Garden.
To   my  blogfriends  I  want  to  say  that
I am lagging  behind 
in  my  visits,
but  I  will  catch  up
with  your  posts 
in  due  time/
I  thank you  all  for  visiting  me 
and  leaving   such  sweet  comments.
Thank  you  for  your  prayers.
We  all  are  well  by  God 's  grace
and  our  Canadian visitors 
have  not  had  any problems.

Do not apologize for not visiting blogs, just keep on enjoying yourself with your visitors. That is so important, and it looks like a wonderful time is being had by all. What beautiful country side. I hope you can get Megan into a sari for some photos. She is a lovely young woman.

I understant You. I have last time more learning so I don't write so many posts too.
Church in Allahabad looks similar to Gothic or Neo-Gothic. I love Gothic style.
Generally, Your photos are so beautiful. Especially the waterfall and family with the sunset.

I love the pictures. Megan is simply lovely. And spirited, too!

Your house looks so cool and inviting. I love the overhanging roof. When the monsoons come, I bet the rain makes a wonderful sound!
