Congratulations and best wishes for your book launch on Saturday.
I read your latest blog which you say is a repeat. I fully agree with you on modern technology and communications. In light of all that is trying to get hold of us, I have tried to make some adjustments to my time management. One of the things I did was to close my Facebook account! The ten questions you have written down is quite good to analyse ourselves. Hope all of us will be able to manage our time to spend more time with Jesus.

Hi dearest Chits. Lovely to hear from you. I'm glad you too are making adjustments with time management. I find I have to constantly be on guard and say 'No' to a lot of good things in order to keep the main thing as the main thing. And yes,. the main thing is of course our time with Jesus.
Thanks for your loving words.
May we continue to seek Him with all our hearts.

Thanks so much sweet sis. Thanks for your faithful prayers over this period which has blessed us so much. And yes, He cares more than we can ever imagine isn't it? Really looking forward to having you here with us sweet sis. That would be lovely.
Much love to you and yours.

Oh darling sis,
I could sense your hurt, confusion and pain at what happened between Dina and you. Those moments and times are really really hard aren't they?
Yet I thank God for the way He led you to understand how He feels yes, when we are busy about many things (often the seemingly good things) that take us away form Him.
Thanks sis for this needed reminder. He loves me inspite of myself & does not treat me as my sins deserve!!
Wishing for you many days of sitting at His feet, basking in His love and hearing from Him.
Praying for Dina too that she will come to know the love of God that will set her free to give and receive love.

Hi Beloved Sis,
Thanks so much for taking the time to read and respond to my blog. Thanks too for understanding the confusion about what happened with my friend. It was really bewildering and a shock to my system, but I was glad I learnt through it and also got closer to God through it. Love the sound of your wishes - basking in His love and hearing from Him. My favourite thing to do. :) Thanks for praying for Dina - I too have been doing a lot of it and I look forward to the day she discovers the love of God for herself which will set her free.
Subject: When Storm Clouds Gather
Thanks you for that needed piece of writing. Yes for most storm clouds do gather often unexpectedly and it is into that His love breaks through!
May we be found faithful and waiting when He returns in all His glory and recognise Him as the shepherds did and be yielded as Mary was.
The Word became flesh and has dwelt among us and we HAVE beheld his glory!!
have a wonderful Christmas! Keep writing and inspire us!

Hi Beloved Sis,
Thanks so much for finding time to read and respond during this busy season. Looking forward so much for His return. Yes, we have beheld His glory haven't we? May He continue to reveal more of His glory to us and give us eyes to see Him.
You too beautiful sis.
Have a blessed Christmas.
Much love as always,

Good morning, dear Anusha
Subject: A God Who Gives
I just loved reading your blog today. It makes me smile when I think about my own life and all the gifts God has given me over the years. Some I didn't think were gifts at the time, but they turned out to be some of my greatest blessings.
And as you know, this past year, God did, indeed, ask me to give something up (a certain relationship as you'll recall); and during the intervening nine months, God absolutely showered me with gifts - so many that I'm still awe struck. He did, in effect, step in as my husband, and provided for me in ways that no human ever has. And after my obedience and a longish waiting period, God gave me back the relationship I'd given up for Him.
I think it's rare that God asks us to give things up; that more often, it's the enemy who does that. But if we use our discernment, as you did and as I continue to try to do, we'll work out whether or not the 'ask' is from the Father's heart. If so ... well, I can only exuberantly encourage all and sundry to be obedient. What awaits you around the corner may be beyond your wildest dream. xo
