I’ll be honest, I haven’t exactly been religious (no pun intended) with my faith of late. I’ve not been attending church meetings and bible classes as regular as I should, or reading the scripture as often as I used to. Each time the husband reminds me to say a prayer for us before our meals (which I must stress does not happen very often, only when my hunger takes too much control over me) – I will silently kick myself in the butt and berate my conscience for taking our basic necessities in life for granted.
Post-wedding (and in fact, pre-wedding too), the Lord continues to shower blessings over us. I was quite worried about popo’s knee cap replacement operation on Tuesday evening, especially since she decided to hang on to the excruciating pain and go for the op only after the wedding. The Lord delivered her safely and I later understood from mom that the doctor mentioned that she was one healthy lady (with the exception of her knees), and that she also did well during the op – showing alertness as she was wheeled out of the ops room later that night.
Bobo & I went to visit popo at the hospital this evening and it was much relief and consolation seeing her cope steadily with the recovery. It was also very heartening to see the love, care & concern displayed by my aunts and uncles. I’m quite sure it put a big smile to popo’s face, knowing that all her children loved her very much, taking turns to take days off , accompanying her whenever possible and asking after her.
I received & shared 2 piece of good news with the husband and mummy today too. It was something quite unexpected, but something which I’ve been seeking for. And knocked on my door, it did. On hindsight, the hubby and mum were right then, when they advised me against acting on impulse and to wait for God’s good grace and timing instead. Seeing the bigger picture now – it sure made plenty of sense. In God’s time and plan. And even more fantastic that I had everyone’s support.
Everything seems to be heading in a great direction for now. And loved ones whom I’ve been especially concerned about health-wise for a while, have recovered too.
I am deeply thankful to the Almighty.
