Profile Information

I am Anthony Loyola Jayaraj, aged 61 years old.  My wife died of cancer eight years ago.  I live alone.  No family.  Even from the time I was young, the God factor intrigued me.  I met my wife in the college.  I was my friend for eight years and then married her and lived 26 years of married life with her and she died eight years ago.  She was so very healthy and suddenly discovered she has cancer.  She gave a good fight but lost her battle.  With that my life sort of came to a standstill.  It took me almost five years to pickup my life and go on with life.  We were both so very similar in nature, likes, and dislikes, we would even dream the same thing.

As I said the God factor intrigued me.  Everyone says God loves, but situations speak otherwise.  It had taken me a very long time to realize that the physical world is different from the spiritual world.  In the spiritual world God is loving, and that we just got to believe this, and only then we could also love as God loves.

My wife was my life and when she left me, I was sort of lost, like a blind man groping in the darkness, but at the end of eight years, it surprises me that I have discovered God.

When I was in the school and college, I used to read a lot and have even written some article for the school magazine.  After I got married I just could not get the time to read, any way gave up reading.  Since the last nine months I have put my effort in writting a book called "A guide to Christian Living" where I have presented the Lord Jesus as the Eternal Word who gives life.  This book is more my own discovery well authenticated and researched.
