Major things happened since I last posted here. Just a few days after my last post, I suffered an ectopic pregnancy. In early June, they took away our baby – who we’ve been praying for, but never knew was already in my tummy – and took away my right fallopian tube. I have been trying to write about it for months now to get it off my chest, but the right words never come. You don’t completely move on from something like that. Sometimes, even at my happiest, the dark clouds come. Someday, God will heal me.
But I am happy to report that things are a whole lot better now. Because by some miracle, in God’s perfect time, we started a new life in a new home.
Three weeks ago, we moved from noisy, busy Metro Manila to a small, quiet village way down south.
We have cows, goats, and birds for neighbors. Every afternoon, I am treated to a live action National Geographic episode right in our “backyard”.
The farm girl in me is doing cartwheels. Our new home reminds me so much of my childhood home in Bacolod.
There’s room to breathe. We love it here. Especially the little girl. We needed this change of scenery.
I believe we are unworthy of His blessings, but He chose to bless us anyway. God orchestrated the whole thing. And so I also firmly believe that God has greater plans for us in our new home. May He help us forget the pain in our hearts, and keep the darkness at bay. May we become His instruments, and be a blessing to others, in ways big and small.
If you are reading this with a broken heart, or a dark cloud looming overhead, believe this: God is preparing something big for you. As He did for me. Surrender your broken pieces to Him – things will be better in His perfect time.
And so, I blog again. I hope to be back here regularly, sharing my God-given talents through crafting and writing, inspiring kindred souls. Here’s to more craft tutorials, and now, happy home improvement projects! Yay!
I would love to hear from you, dear reader. It’s been a while. Please leave a note for me in the comments!
