I hadn't thought about it for a long time....

...and then... I thought about it...
....and kept thinking about it....
...which made me think about looking up a friend of mine who I hadn't talked to for a long time, on Facebook....
(my friend, Lois, is in the yellow outfit)
...and then I was looking at her pictures...


...which made me think about it even more...

...about people who need Jesus...

...an Odissi dancer...

...a miserable-looking Hindu couple, who probably didn't even know each other until that day they got married...
...precious little children...

...a rather frightful-looking Hindu performer...

...because they were taught to believe in and slave under this...
...instead of to believe in and worship the One True God, Jehovah, and His Son Jesus Christ.

Who knows how long I'll be thinking about it, or what will come of it. Nevertheless, I have been reminded...
India needs Jesus.

Thanks for bearing with my ramble. I have a lot on my mind these days.

Melanie said...

Yes INDEED, Teddy dear. Very much so indeed.

And it would be lovely if you came with me! :-D I am beginning to think about saving up for a short term trip there. But like you said, I really need to pray about it. REALLY. :-)
