Praying for the nephew’s health

My eight years old nephew is very sickly lightly.  He has attacked by a severe cough and on and off fever.  My SIL is so worried because the temperature went as high as 39.2-degree celsius and the nephew is chilling.  We have him checked for several doctors because we want the second opinion of his condition.  We have been told that there is something wrong with his urine.  The red blood cells in his urine are really high.  One doctor says its UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), so we undergo treatment.  After the medication, the urinalysis result is not normal.  Something is really wrong with the nephew’s condition.

Yesterday, the nephew has a fever again.  My SIL brought him to the doctor again.  Again, undergo laboratory test and advised us to consult a nephrologist.  The doctor said that something is wrong with his kidney.  Hearing it made us thought of the worse condition of the nephew.  Lots of negative thoughts that enters our mind especially the SIL (nephew’s mother).  Though we do not know what is his condition yet.  The nephew has to undergo five laboratory tests first.  We are sad, worried and confused about the nephew’s condition.  But we tried to think positively and pray that the nephew’s health is okay and not serious.  Prayer is powerful medicine, that is why we are praying so hard.  Lord God heal my nephew.  Amen!

Celebrating her special day with us

It was one of the happiest days in my brother’s life when he finally introduced to us the girl he wants to marry.  We were surprised because we did not know he has new girlfriend after the hurtful experience from his fast girlfriends.  We were sad back then when his girlfriend dumped him.  I saw him very down and sad.  And we did our best to cheer him up.  Everyday we tell him that life is still beautiful no matter how difficult the trials are.  We are glad that after months of being lonely, the brother finally found the girl who loves him and treasure him.

Last December 6, 2016 they came visited us.  They said that they have an important appointment to finish.  We did not know that it was the birthday of my brother’s girlfriend/soon to be wife early next year and my future SIL.  They spend one day and one night to celebrate her birthday with us.  It was another important event in the family that we will treasure forever.  We had a simple celebration at home.  We cook our favorites, bought cake to complete the celebration and invited some close friends.  It was indeed a very memorable event, and we are overwhelmed that she chooses to celebrate her special day with us.  Happy Birthday again Ann and wish you good health and happiness in life with my brother.

Due to water interruption

Yesterday, I woke up early because I am planning to do my laundry.  I have load of laundry again because I did not able to finish it because my sister gave birth and I am assisting her.  So I have loads of laundry to do after I got home.  I woke up early so I finish early too only to find out that there is no water.  Yes, we have water interruption yesterday.  I am angry because there is no notice that there will be a water interruption.  It ruined my day yesterday I must say.  I did not fill our container with water.

I got bored waiting for the water to come back but it did not.  It was 3:00 in the after and still no water.  Since I can’t do my laundry I have to do something to make my day fruitful.  I am looking at the four corners of our home and think of something to do.  Then I decided to clean my room.  It’s not that dirty, just that I think I need to make some changes in my room.  While cleaning, I noticed that the closet and the drawer is messy.  Well, my nephews and nieces doings because they like to stay in my room.  My day yesterday went fruitful, it is like making something out of nothing.  In a way I am thankful to water interruption.  Now my room is less messy.

Thank you Lord for the safe delivery

Today my sister delivered a healthy baby girl under C-Section.  Last minute the sister is so worried and nervous.  She did not know why she just felt it when they are on their way to the hospital.  Maybe because she knows what’s going to happen.  It is her third time to deliver a baby via C-Section, so I guess her worries and nervous comes from that thought also she keeps on saying that she is old.  She is scary because of her age. haha!  As her sister and her best friend, I am always here to give my comforting advice.  I am making sure that I give the advice that would make her feel relax.  Well, I just happen to know how to make her feel relax and okay.

Anyways, this post is for God for the safe delivery and operation of my sister.   Thank you Lord for always there to guide her, protect her and answering her prayers and wishes.  My sister is now recovering, I pray that she will recover fast so she can drink water and eat solids too.  She is complaining earlier that she is so thirsty and hungry, but she has to endure it for her safety.  The funny thing is that she wakes up and said she dreamed of lots of foods and water in front of her.haha!  Be patient sister, foods and water will always be there waiting for her.  Recover fast and God bless!
