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…
