An Urgent Call to Go Back Home

We're preparing for our trip back to the Phil. tomorrow. Maybe you have read what had happened in my family back home. We will be with them and see the body of our dearly beloved member of the family who is already with the Lord. It's painful but we have nothing to do, God has His own way, though we may not understand sometimes... but the best thing is... HE CARES for us! And He is also hurt when we're hurting... He grieves when we're in grief... He really understands how we feel! We are blessed with friends who care and love us. One friend provided for our airfare, another booked for us, another sends words of comfort, and many sends emails. Friends are really hard to find but when they come, they are worth and a treasure! I'm not sure if I still have time to blog there in Bacolod but I will try if I have a chance. I will be missing you for a while but we will be back after two weeks. Life without friends are boring, right? We need people, friends and family who care! Life is not complete without them. But above all, life is worthless without our Father who is the greatest lover of all. A Father who is in heaven and cares for His children. We will be missing our niece of course especially her parents and sisters, but we are assured that we will see face to face again someday. It's an assurance for us as believers in Christ. Abrupt preparations are sometimes hard, we were shocked what had happened. But God is faithful, He knows what lies ahead of us, He knows each one's name, He cares... I would like to share this song that touches my heart every time I sing:

I have a maker He formed my heart Before even time began My life was in His hand He knows my name He knows my every thought He sees each tear that falls And hears me when I call I have a Father He calls me His own He'll never leave me No matter where I go
Our Father, our Maker, our Master knows what's best for each of His children, though we grieve but it won't last because we know that we will see her again someday. Our lives are in His hands...

What is Life?

God's plan is perfect...and He makes no mistakes! It's great how He created and molded people for His purpose. Just this evening around 6pm, my brother called and told us that our niece (Dawna) is already with the Lord. Maybe some of you knew about her situation. I'm writing right now with tears and don't know what to write but our God knows and sees every tear that falls and He understands... This is the story behind. My niece was diagnosed with leukemia when he was 6 years old. She's the same age with our eldest son. Then she had undergone chemotherapy and was healed. When we went back to the Phil. last year to visit the family, her sickness recurred, she had undergone a lot of blood transfusions and was given heavy medicines just to survive. We prayed a lot for her and the Lord answered our prayers, 4 days before we left and went back to Thailand- she was healed. You can read here to know the real story. God has been so gracious to her and to our family. She was totally healed and all the diagnosis was normal, Her Mama cried a lot when she read the result. Even the doctor would agree that it's God's power. Just imagine in the midst of swelling tummy, legs and jaundice eyes... all of a sudden she was okay. Just recently, again the sickness came back, we're already confused why? We always believe it's the work of the enemy... but we kept trusting the Lord for her to survive. But God has His own plan... we may not understand, it's hurting but we need to accept that life is like a vapor that passes by ... it won't stay long. I tried to call my sister ( the mother of Dawna) and she told me that Dawna is already with the Lord. They ( Dawna and her Mama) visited our eldest sister in the morning yesterday and Dawna told her Mama that she missed her cousins and continued to say that she could not remember something, she couldn't understand. Her Mama saw that there is a blood clot on her head and they brought her to the hospital for check up and immediately she was brought to the ICU but she did not stay longer, the Lord took her at 5pm yesterday. It was sudden and hurts us but everything was under His hands. I like this song and I quote:

God is too wise to be mistaken God is too good to be unkind So when you don't understand When you don't see His plan When you can't trace His hand Trust His HEART....
We have the desire to go home and see her for the last time. But we are still waiting for God's perfect timing and the provisions too because we need to go as a family.
