Sunday Blessings -Company

Miss  Jha (right) is  my  mother  's  friend and
occasionally  attends  our  church  too.
She  has  been  a  teacher  and headmistress  of  the  Methodist  School
since  the  past  28  years.
She  is  past  retirement   age  but  continues  to
work.
On  Friday was  her  birthday, so  we invited
her for  dinner. Her family lives
far  away in  a neighbouring  state.
Miss  Jha  is  a  very  godly  and  wise  lady.
Its  been  a  tradition  in her
family  to  dedicate the  first born
male children for  the  Lord 's  service.

I  baked  her   a  cake

Mixed  vegetable  soup

(counter wise from the top)
cucumber salad, idlis (South  Indian Rice  cakes),
Spaghetti ,  dosas (South  Indian stuffed crepes)
coconut chutney, hot lentils called  sambar.
 The  South  Indian food  
I ordered  from  a  restaurant.

Please  pray  for Miss  Jha.
Her  school  is  undergoing  changes
and  her  job  is  at stake.
She  is  looking  for  new  options.
May  she  find  a  good  job  and 
a  safe  place  to  live.

I will gladly pray for her. I'm so glad that God cares for us and is able to meet all our needs!
Your meal looks delicious Amrita. I hope you had a wonderful visit.

Dear Amrita,
How sweet of you to honor Miss Jha with a great birthday treatment.
Your are indeed such a lovely person, caring for so many who need attention.
I will pray for Miss Jha, that the mission who she has served for so many years, also must feel responsible and find her a good retirement position.
It will be unworthy not to do that, especially for a Christian Church.
May the Lord bless you all this "silent week".
From Felisol

For elder people it is difficult to change even small things in life. I will pray for her.

I will Amrita, and God bless you as well.

Amrita said...

Thank you for your prayers for Miss Jha. Her desire is to keep on working till she is physically fit. She lives very frugally. She doesn 't have a fridge and cooks her simple meals on a kerosene stove.

Amrita said...

Dear Fekisol, I like the way you named Holy Week - silent week.

We have evening prayer meetings in different church homes. Last night we had our turn.
On Thurs there is communion in church , then Good Fri morning service.

May God's love and peace continually surround Miss Jha as she lives each day.

What a lovely birthday celebration you gave her and the food all looks delicious, making me want to look up some Indian recipes online.

I love your header picture. Just beautiful, it touches my heart.

its wonderful you were able to honor her in such a way on her birthday..and yes, its difficult for older folks especially to find work, We have the same problem in this country..I will be praying that the Lord leads her to the right place..I know He will...hugs

What a lovely birthday lunch. Adding Miss Jha to my prayer list. Somewhere there is someone praying for an employee like her. Take good care!

Kimmie said...

What a lovely thing to do for your friend. God bless her that she is still working...God will care for her and provide for her certainly.
