In Leonard Ravenhill's "The Judgement Seat of Christ" he quoted a poem ---"Only one life- 'twill soon be past-only what's done for God will last-"Does anyone know the writer? He said her name but I've no clue. My great aunt has this knitted or croche'd or something like that and it hangs on her wall. I love it!Help is appreciated!!
Her name is Amy Carmichael, here is a short bio on her that I found on the Net;[i]Arriving in India as a pioneer missionary, Amy Carmichael had no idea of the dangerous work ahead of her to save young girls from cult prostitution in Hindu temples, and later to take in boys sold to temple service and traveling acting troupes. Not could she foresee the times of material need, physical danger, pain and debilitating illness, disappointment and attack by friends. Her life and the mission she founded in Dohnavur Fellowship are a stunning and inspirational story.Poet, hymnwriter and author, Amy Carmichael's fifty-six years in India and the legacy of her work stand as a lasting testimony to the courageous young woman from Northern Ireland who stepped into the darkness surrounding her and found the greatest "refuge" of all the sheltering love of God.[/i]In Christ,Ron
I have read Amy's biography. I am a huge fan of hers. She was such a neat lady and gave everything for so many.~Chanin
