“In God’s time“, mga katagang lagi nating naririnig kapag tayo’y may hinihiling sa Diyos na kung maaari lamang ay ibigay na sana kaagad. Kakambal nito ang isa pang kataga: “Patience is a virtue”. At siya ngang totoo. Sa aming pananalig sa Diyos at pagtitiyaga, kami ay marami nang ulit na nagwawagi. Marami na sa aming panalangin ang nabigyang kasagutan.
Anim na taon na kaming kasal ng aking kabiyak at lima sa anim na taong iyon ay nakatira kami sa bahay ng aking ina. At sa limang taong din iyon, ipinpagamit sa amin ng aking ina ang isa niyang sasakyan. Kaya ganoon na lamang ang aming pasasalamat sa kaniya. Ngunit tulad ng marami, pangarap siyempre naming mag-asawa ang magkaroon ng sariling bahay at sariling sasakyan. Kasama palagi iyan sa aming mga panalangin.
Hindi namin inaasahan o pinlano ang mapunta ng Amerika. Mahigit isang taon na kami dito. At kahit kami’y nangungupahan pa laman sa kasalukuyan, itinuturing at inaalagaan namin ang aming bahay na parang kami na rin ang talagang nagmamayari nito. Umaasa kaming pag dating ng araw, bibiyayaan na rin kami ng Diyos ng aming sariling bahay.
Noong Abril, nakabili na kami ng aming unang sasakyan. Binili namin ang sasakyan (at hinuhulugan pa!) pero ang pakiramdam nami’y para kaming nagwagi sa isang patimpalak.
Sadyang napakabait ng Diyos sa amin. At kami nama’y talagang gayon na lang ang pasasalamat.
Isa pang lahok para sa LP DITO.
“In God’s time”, a line we often hear when we’re asking for something from God. It’s a line, which is closely related to “Patience is a virtue”. And we know these to be true. We’ve always had strong faith in God and in His time, many of our prayers have been answered…bigger and better than we wished for. God always leave us feeling triumphant.
Hubby and I have been married for 6 years. Five of those years, we lived in my mom’s house. And in those five years, my mom lent us one of her cars. We will eternally be greatful for my mom’s kindness. Even if we had a house to live in and a car that took us everywhere, we still dreamed of having our very own home and our very own car.
We didn’t plan on moving to the US. We’ve been living in the US for more than a year now. Although we’re renting a townhouse, we treat and care for the house we live in, our home, as if it were our own. In God’s time, we know God will bless us with a house that we can truly call our own.
Last April, we bought our first car. We spent money on it and we continue to pay for it, yet, it feels as if we won the car.
God has always been very good to us. And we are ever so thankful.
One of the gifts Hubby received for his birthday was a poker set. It was given by one of our dearest friends. Hubby gamely showed off his poker chips…and poker face.
During his birthday lunch, hubby got a free slice of cake, my other WW entry.
