Tho He slay me...

Winter  Flowers

My  dear  friends  thank  you  for  sending  us   good  wishes  and  assurances   of  prayer.
That  has  kept  our  spirits,  faith
and  physical  reserves  up in  these  past  few   days.

Apart  from  knee  exercises Mama  has  to  take  complete  bed  rest. Its  hard  to  just  lie  flat  on  your
back and  turn  a  few  times.
She  gets  irritated,  lonely  and  bored,
sometimes   angry  too.Sister  Namrita  is
nursing  her  day  and  night and  me
helping. My  elder  sister  and  BIL  are on  their way to  India.
That  is  a  great  comfort. 
On  YouTube  I  show  mom  her
favourite  soaps - to  cheer  her  up.
We  have  family  prayers  and  I  read  scriptures  aloud  to  her and  play  Christian  music.
Our  lives  are  centred  around   our  mother.
Namrita's  11  year  old  Rayguel  plays ball,  or  with 
Sheeba. He  watches  cartoons  and  plays  games  .
Hard  to   keep  him occupied,  but  he  doesn' t  complain.  He   is  a  good    boy.
Its  very  cold  here  that  is  making  life
difficult.  But  we thank  God  for 
the  warm   clothes  we  have 
and  a  little  space heater
for  Mom.
Besides  dealing  with  our  mother 's 
illness we  have  facing  some  very
deep  troubles  and  trials.
I  cannot  share  anything  here.
The  devil  is  trying  to  crush  us  and   tear  us  apart.
Its  like   the  Anti Christ  of  the   book
of  Revelation.
I went  through  a  period  of  shock
and  emotional  upheaval.
But  prayer,  reading the  scriptures and  help  from  strong  believers has  kept us  strong
and  stable.
All  this  we  are  hiding  from  Mom,  as  it  will
be  detrimental to her recovery.
we  are  like  on  an  emotional roller
coaster -  up  and  down.
But  always  feeling  the  presence of  God.
We  remain  strong  in  this  evil day.
And  with  Job  I  will  say,
"Tho He  slay me
yet  will  I  trust  Him".
(Job 13;14)

We  need your  prayers
and  support.
Pray  for  our safety.
I  am  slowly  visiting   blog  friends.
My  physical energy is low.

12 Fertilize my soul:

Good Morning
I am sorry to hear of suffering gripping your days.
The stress must be very very exhausting. I will pray for you strength and warmth against both the cold and the onslaught. May you all be kept safe.

Dear Amrita,
I so understand how exhausted you must feel. Midst in the trials, it's a good thing you mother's illness had gathered the family, so you need not feel so alone. God will free you out according to his promises. He will never leave, nor forsake you.
I am praying.
Your Felisol

Dear Amrita, I'm sorry to hear that your mother is sick. But I'm glad to know that you and your family will be allright in the hands of our God. Thank you for sharing this with us. We learn from each other.

Dear Amrita,

You're a lovely, lovely woman. Truly.

I just prayed for you and I hope that whatever it is, when you come out, you will come out stronger, and that God may bless you many many times for what you went through.

A double portion. Just like what Job got.

If there's anything I can do to help you, please let me know.

I know it feels as if your mother will be laid up forever, but the time really will pass. And the good side of it is that she is getting lots of visitors. Stay strong, my friend! xx
