Where Light Shines the Brightest

“…the people living in darkness have seen a great light…” (Matthew 4:16)

March – Mara hospitalized for high fever; Robelle followed suit;

April – Papang placed on insulin for diabetes and whose foot was in danger of being amputated;

May – My sister with chronic acute gastro problems;

June – My brother and sister-in-law losing their child to a miscarriage;

July – Daddy diagnosed with a serious liver condition;

August – Financial challenges brought about by a change of career;

September – Our family property in the province under litigation and in danger of being foreclosed;

November – Jeng suffering the first attack of her abdominal pains; her grandmother passing away;

December – Robelle and Mara getting sick with dengue one after another; Jeng suffering her second major attack of her abdominal pains; Robelle and Mara getting digestion problems on the days leading to Christmas; Water pipes breaking down at home; I nearly died because of a vehicular accident; Jeng undergoing a complicated gall bladder surgery

It was a year of darkness for us, as a family…but it was also the year when the Light shone the brightest.

God…our provider

God…our healer

God…our protector

God…our consolation

God…our joy

 Truly,  “…the people living in darkness have seen a great light…” (Matthew 4:16).

And so we enter 2009 in a blaze, shining brightly like never before.

To God be the glory!

Basking in God’s Light,
