Tiring day or should I say tiring month. Because of the deadline plus my wife's condition I wasn't able to have a complete rest everyday-I feel so restless. I am not frustrated just tired but I am glad and thankful to God that we were able to finish this week with so much achievements. First, to my work and then to my family.
We were able to open up a file at the King Abdulaziz University Hospital for my wife. King Abdulaziz University is a school for medical practitioners here in Jeddah or probably in the whole kingdom. It's a great blessing to be accepted at that hospital because we won't have to worry about any expenses anymore since it's all free. Prayers are really so powerful and I would like to thank all who prayed for my wife. She's doing great now - thank God.
I admit, I kinda felt numb these days on what is happening around me. Like for instance, even though we experience difficulties there aren't any heavy feelings within me. And like now, I feel the tired but I don't feel sad about these difficulties. I don't know if it is positive or a negative thing. I think God made me not feel these burdens so I could concentrate on what I can do and not on what I can't do. We know that when a person is being pressured, they panic and start to think of what they can't do and be frustrated about it.
I did almost everything at home like cooking, washing the dishes, washing the dirty clothes, ironing clothes, preparing Ize to go to school, etc... plus my work. I was just glad that my boss allowed me to work at home. I never imagined it is such a hard job working at home. In case you are wondering why I am doing all this stuff, my wife got another blood clot and the doctor strictly told us for her not to work and even walk. Here is an info about her health problem - check it here.
Before I was wondering what God is trying to teach me or us (me and my wife). But now I realized that God taught me these things:
|This was taken at Baksh Hospital when Leah was confined.|
Prayers do work - like I said, God listens. Sometimes He just wants to hear what we need. Ask him diligently in prayer. And of course with the prayers of your friends.
Faithfulness - God was so faithful even if we weren't faithful to Him.
He works in mysterious way - like when the time when we were in the university, the assigned doctor was too lazy. From the time he went on his schedule he up to the time he ended his shift, he only accepted three or four patients of all the 30 people (I think) that came. We were only accommodated before that doctor ended his shift and was endorsed immediately to the next doctor who was accommodating and was more willing to help us. He was the one who approved and made the recommendation for us to open a file at the university which is quite hard to achieve there.
For short, I am dead tired but I am happy. Thank you God for such blessings. God bless to all.
