4:12 AM!

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6 : 2.

Good morning to you all. The below is the wonderful story which talks about the salvation and its importance.

The school children came to visit the dairy farm of a kind farmer. The farmer had a big sign on the wall which said, “Prepare to meet thy God.” AM 4 : 12. They had many questions about the cows and the farm and also one about the sign. When they asked what the sign implied, the farmer said, “The Lord is coming soon, and we must be ready to meet Him. If we are still in our sins, we will not be ready. But God has sent His beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to die for us on Calvary's cross. If you tell Him you are sorry you've been naughty and want Him to forgive you, you will be saved. Then you will be ready to meet Him when He comes.”

Little Johnny went home that afternoon, he told his mother, “I've got to get saved before I go to bed tonight.” “Why do you have to be saved tonight?” his mother asked. “Well, the farmer said Jesus is coming soon, and on the wall in the barn it said, ‘Prepare to meet thy God, AM 4:12,' and I never wake up that early, so I need to be saved before I go to sleep.”


You may smile at the child's mistake in thinking that the AM on the sign meant "morning," when really it is the abbreviation for Amos, the book in the Old Testament where the verse is written. But the little boy knew this was something he should not put off. He was going to look after the most important thing in his life right away. What about you? “Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation” 2 Corinthians 6 : 2. “The blood of Jesus Christ cleanseth us from all sin.”  1 John 1 : 7. I hope you all will remember Amos 4 : 12 from now on and the only way to prepare yourself for the day is to be cleansed by the blood of the precious lamb, Jesus. Be prepared!

My pregnancy journey

I got married in Aug 2013, but never got to see positive Urine pregnancy test. NEVER! I won't say I was greatly disappointed as I was also waiting for few things between me and husband to settle down slowly and it took a while. Once things became alright everyone started expecting and wherever we went we got plenty of advice and tips. We were hesitant to take Sunday's classes due to the initial issues between us, but somehow for the past two years we have been teaching little children every Sunday. 
In the meantime, we tried multiple doctors (no big treatments) and were bored with the same repetitive scans and tests, which reported no issues as such. The last scans taken in 2017 reported I had little harmless cysts and they would take time to resolve and the doctor would stop even the few tablets I had to take on 5 days at the start of my cycle. I would have to be honest here. My cycle - can vary from 26 days to 60 days too. You can hardly guess what my fertile days are, includ…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…
