I am supposed to be lying in my bed and pamper my lazy self right now.
But i got up and got myself a bottle of coke! Haha because i am craving for it.
So why am i blogging?
One reason, i just got an inspiration from my Facebook app God Wants You To Know and its very inspiring that i would like to share it all to you.
Each kind of bird has a uniquely-shaped beak, wings, and even feather shape so that everything about it is perfect for the lifestyle it lives. The various wing shapes allow them to dart after a bug, soar miles above a field, or fly for months over the ocean. Just as God cares enough to give each bird exactly what it needs, so you have been given the exact talents and personality to live the life God has given you.
Sundays happens to give me a mix of emotions, hopeful, sad and longing, because it was one Sunday that i thought life has made a really bad joke in my life, and i had no one to run to but God, i went to church, and just have faith, that there is always always a reason for everything. That Sunday when i thought i would never get the chance to see my father's corpse for the first and the last time of my life.
But God was so great that he gave me a miracle, 12 midnight, he used my cousin as an instrument for me to go and see my father.
But it wasnt that easy, it was a series of unfortunate events before i could take my flight, from where i live (which you cant find on Google Maps) Company Taxi's dont even have any idea where my place is, and there was certainly no motorcycle for me to ride going to the high way to get a cab and catch my 5am flight.
Booked my ticket by 12mn and im panicking, everytime i hear a motorcycle run, i'd jump from my room outside of the gate to catch it. But alas, i couldnt find anyone. I waited outside for hours, in the dark, to see if i could catch someone. Time passed and there was none. It was 2:30am, and i had to be at the airport by 3am.
Finally God answered my prayers,i found a ride that drove me to the taxi stand and gave that guy an extra amount of money. It was a risk riding not knowing who he was. But i could not care more. I wanted to be there for my father for the first and last time.
When i finally got a taxi, he drove like a madman to the point that because of fear i held tightly to my rosary. But then, i occupied his taxi by 2:45 and he got me at the airport by 3am. God, then again answered me.
At those ungodly hour he gave me a miracle, he never let anything happen to me, he was with me when i thought i was all alone. And thats something ill always be thankful for all my life.
Scanning at all this pictures, i am glad to say that despite everything, i have found myself, smiling again. Genuinely smiling again. And for that my dear readers, have faith! Because everyday is a miracle, God provides, not what you want, but what you need.
And no this is not what i wore to church, im sharing these photos because this is where i found my genuine smile teeehee
