What are the things that we do when we are sick or suffering from pains?….In my case….I always offer whatever it is that I feel to God….Once I was confined in the hospital and it was my first time ever to be confined….I was already in my 30’s then yet I acted like a child and I “texted” God and asked him to ease the pain that I was going through ….( I made some number combinations as if they are God’s numbers^^…..and you know what?…..I was able to sleep soundly after I texted Him^^)…..Just knowing that God loves us and knows how we feel means a lot to me already…..That was the reason why I felt so relieved inspite of the pain that I was going through…..
Many times I asked God why do we have to suffer from heartaches, poverty, injustice, wars, corruptions etc…..There are even those who had suffered much from what we had experienced…..And then we just stop complaining when those very people who suffered greatly than us would tell us how beautiful life is or how good God is to all of us…..In a way… in my humble experience, I was able to appreciate God’s love for me when He embraced me and forgave me for all the stupid things that I’ve done…..Maybe if I had not experienced those things I wouldn’t have been a better person as I am today….though I think I am still struggling to be one……a true Christian…..
I had experienced crying almost every night…..but I had no regrets when those things had happened…..They happened because God wants me to humble myself…..to make me understand that He is my savior….the one hope that I needed in this world……
All the things that had happened to me were all forgiven by Him……God knows us better than anyone else in this world……Let’s put our trust in Him…..Trust God and everything will be alright^^…….
It’s gonna be 40 days to go before Christmas^^…..In the Philippines people get so excited and they make early preparations for it…..whether in schools, offices, shopping malls, markets, restaurants, hospitals, you will see Christmas decorations already to some as early as September….
There are also those who are into charitable acts when this season comes….Recently in our school….we had just been adopted by some foreign missionaries from the US and Canada….and even with our own kababayans….
It’s really different when this season comes….Although some of us may have some personal hurts or problems … those things will be offset as we feel love and charity ruling the season….
Though there are some news that really saddens us like there are some kababayans and even other nationalities who lost their jobs in foreign countries because of global economic problems….and we know how badly they needed jobs in order to sustain their families….and the fact that Christmas is getting nearer…. but ofcourse we must not lose hope and trust God always….
I was also touched by what happened to my fellow teacher’s Mom who had a stroke and suffered from loss of her memory and speech…It was really heartbreaking…..though I can see how strong her Mom is and how my co teacher dealt with this problem with so much faith…..I know they will be fine…..
There was also this news of a brave British teenager who refused to undergo heart transplant…..She reminded me of my late father who did the same thing….There are so many miracles that could happen or had happened in this world…We just have to understand what is going on to appreciate them….
We had a sports fest yesterday in our district and one of the participants on the chess event happened to be a young 2nd grader who is just so smart that she was able to compete with other much older participants…..The young girl was with her coach and her mother …..but during the game itself the coach is not allowed to enter the room where the contest is going on……So there would be chances for the kids to set some rules for themselves when the proctor wouldn”t take a close look at them….So it happened that this young girl lost in one of the games because her other older opponent outsmarted her…..There was a ruling that there will be a ‘touch move” during the game yet the older opponent did not follow the rules strictly….
So the young and honest girl lost…..After the game when she was already with her coach and her mother…..Her mother was upset and said…..”Why didn’t you tell the proctor that your opponent cheated during the game”……The young girl said….”I just gave her a chance to correct her moves so that she’ll still have the chance to continue with the game because it’s too early for her to lose”…..Then the mother said…..”It’s your fault that you lost the game…..You are too kind!”…..But the young girl replied……”Yes but don’t blame me if I am kind…..It’s your fault Mother because you are so kind too!^^”…..
That was it and both just smiled at each other….Haha!… It was really heartwarming to hear both mother and daughter take things lightly during the sports fest yesterday^^…..
