Vacation: Days of our Lives

Days relentlessly waiting for vacation was soon fulfilled and our souls were truly satisfied. God made perfect everything that concerned me over our vacation period. Our scenery shifted from Australian outback to lushful & cool landscapes in South-India.

Ice-cold waterfalls showering on warm & sunny days at Courtrallam & Gundaru dam-Gopal private waterfalls with families, followed by dining our favourite parotta at Border Rahmath. Well-known Boat-house at Allepey backwaters with superb hospitality & serving those native Karimeen fried fish; speed boating with our families, bought fresh catch of the day “yabbies”, followed by music & games with families. Cool air & unforgettable fresh new mornings at the resort, beautiful misty mountains at Munnar hillstation, nature’s rich bounty with tasty palm fruits & fresh coconuts, visited Mattupatty dam, boating & safari to Eravikulam National Park, watched beautiful native species Tahr goats and relaxed at serene resorts, explored Tea Factory. We celebrated the oneness with lots of native food & thanksgiving, sneaked into Cowboy Adventure Park (loads of fun there!). We embraced long awaited family get-togethers (yearning for each other for years since Covid lock-down); not to miss the hustle & bustle of Bangalore city, heart-warming hospitality & food,  fun filled barbeque at twilight with dear family, memorable days at Bannerghata National park & safari; watched celestial objects at sky theatre at Jawaharlal Nehru planetarium, good load of family meals, shared cooking, nanna co-sleeping, shared valuable & favourite childhood nibbles, shared “nephews” proud moments, heavy purchases, made into heavy laden travel bags, meet up with close friends & mentors, packed our bags and flew back to Australia.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights,  James 1:17

This vacation as a period of rest & enjoyment was a gift from God.

Thanks be to our Heavenly Father for his words spoken over my life.

If God had not been on my side, I would have had nervous breakdown by now.

His peace prevailed over the storm.

His grace kept me going.

His thunderous silence calmed me down.

His still voice still speaks in my deepest of heart.

Thank you Heavenly Father for your kindness & goodness.

Your love reaches down to the depth of my heart where many sorrows are buried.

Because of your unfailing grace, I have not been wandering with a broken heart.

Truly my Heavenly Father cares for me! Grateful for the rest which I received from Jesus Christ.

It’s Possible

..destroy whatever among you is devoted to destruction. Joshua 7:12

You cannot stand against your enemies until you remove it. Joshua 7:13

We can see the thoughts of God clearly in these Scripture verses. There is something in your midst that eats you up. It keeps you occupied. Your focus shifts and it aims at your well-being and harmony. It targets your growth. It can only bring you down but never build you up. God says destroy whatever among you that is devoted to destruction. Put an end to it.

Free, Best & True Love

“I have loved you…with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself.”

Jeremiah 31:3 NLT

Almighty God loved you with an everlasting love. He loved you first and drawn you close to him. His bond of love can never break. His love will never fail. For your sake, he sent His son Jesus Christ to bear your sins so you can live free.

His love is genuine. He demonstrated his love and compassion for you. No one can love more than God. You can love him back. You can depend on His true love. May you be blessed through Jesus Christ!
