I had very beautiful childhood, fondled like a princess, the teenage was tomboyish, which extended up to 19 precious years in life. i knew the name of jesus Christ at the age of 4 years, and I knew the power in His name even at that age. I knew I could claim His name to win over the powers of darkness even at that tender age. Later He used to touch my child heart through dreams, mostly, and some visions now and then. Only at the age of 20 years I found that He was the lover of my soul. started to express my deep feelings at His feet, and learned to listen to Him. For the past 45 years of my walk with Him taught me many lessons of life till now.
The woods are lovely , dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And Miles to go before I sleep
And Miles to go before I sleep–Robert Frost
