It brings tears thinking about all the things that happened this year. Most of my handkerchiefs witness the overflowing gratitude I have inside.
Things that are unexpected makes me appreciate the gifts nicely wrapped, shipped on a cargo for some time and delivered on our doorstep by One whom I adored most. It’s been a long wait to be granted with my major wishes and surprisingly they come into life this year.
Pardon me if this post is going into circles but I am lost for words in sharing this good feeling.
Realize and be surprised
Something inside tells me, “It’s not just you who’s sad. Your family longs to feel your warmth. They just pretend to be against of what you do because you completely made yourself
busy unavailable. How was that? Where’s the love? They are not the ones who will adjust for you. You must. Now is the time to move!” There goes the “Boom!!!” in my heart that I can’t ignore. With God’s help I realized how lacking I am being a daughter, a granddaughter, a niece, a friend and most especially being a sibling.”
The long wait is over
For 7 years, my ex-boyfriend and I travelled on the “single but not available road.” Honestly I admit that in most of my prayers I ask Him to guide us and be found pleasing in His sight all the years of our lives. I 100% attest to what our preachers say, “Loving is not an easy task. It entails tears and pain.” With God’s mercy, my ex-boyfriend is the man who caused the change of my surname, my husband – Theo. Thanks be to God for our preachers, Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, who advised us to wait for the right time and live in control through the topics they deliver every Church gathering.
A wish to be thankful so much more
It’s one of my wishes to offer the sacrifice of thanksgiving from the bottom of my heart. Not because I think I need to but to always feel that I want and need to. Again with God’s help a good Prompter tells me, “Run to Him and find your hiding place. Cry out a river to the One who completely understand you. Give thanks.”
All the rest remains to be a wonderful thing I know but could not express.
There are so many things I am thankful for. My sincerest apologies to those I caused sadness/ pain.
May we all have a blessed year ahead!
