Welcome to My Happiness Pocket™ This is to remind myself that there is a lot more reason for me to smile rather than to frown.. Life is an existence of kiss both from happiness and sadness. You will win over life if you will constantly struggle to find joy in everything. Verily, it takes effort and courage to do so.. to view something unlikable as likable, to see a tragedy as blessing and to consider fiasco as success. Learn to view life in different angles.. because God never said that no bad thing will ever happen to you. But here’s His big promise: That every time a bad thing will happen to you, good things will come out of it... ~Romans 8:28
Yesterday was a pretty rocky day for me. I experienced a sudden drop of Blood Pressure, upper and lower abdominal pain, rashes on my legs and arms, and fatigued-feeling body.
The doctor herself, doubted the accuracy of the lab exam’s positive results because [accdg to her] I’m looking super pale and yellowish . And so, she instructed my momo to bring me upstairs and get another round of diagnosis.
I am feeling really terrible and dizzy. I can’t walk if not accompanied by my super mom plus my lower abdomen started to get really painful.
At the ultrasound room: Feeling dizzy and all the pain, I rested upon the clinic’s bed and I… I like the bed sheet. hehe.
A girl (a doctor or med technologist. I think. I just called her ‘Ate’ sa sobrang hilo ko) started to perform the ultrasonographic examination. I was comforted by God as I hear worship songs playing one after the other on her phone.
She said, “Okay naman ang organs mo.. pero bakit namimilipit ka sa sakit.”
After the test, she prayed and rebuked the sickness that was afflicting me that very moment.
Indeed, PRAYER REALLY WORKS as I felt the gradual relief right after she prayed for me.
To cut the long story short, I got home with handful of antihistamines, antibiotics and vitamins but with the assurance that my inner organs are all well-functioning and Im negative to Dengue. I slept and woke up feeling so well-rested like never before.
Around 9pm the same day, I looked for the printed result to see if there’s any contact number included there, wanting to thank ‘Ate’ thru text for her kindness and concern…
It’s inspiring to see that the verse that I have been pondering [way back then] during my most downcast times at work is printed on it. A quick reminder from God to revive the same attitude towards work -to be a blessing wherever I am, whenever I could.
God is so amazing. He is seriously at work for the goodness of His beloved people.
Thank You Lord for showing me that You are always in control; that You are forever above any unlikely circumstances.
Take a look at an apple tree. There might be five hundred apples on the tree, but each apple has just ten seeds. That’s a lot of seeds!
We might ask, “Why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more apple trees?”
Nature has something to teach us here. It’s telling us: “Not all seeds grow. In life, most seeds never grow. So if you really want to make something happen, you had better try more than once.”
Boogie‘s such a very charming dog that makes me want to be home for ever and a day.
He always wanted to be carried and cuddled; patting his head will surely sedate him. He prefers to sleep on bed with a family member beside him or if not possible, with his squashy dog stuff toy. I am not so sure if those behaviors were just his customary temperament being a Labrador or just because he’s our irreplaceable Boogie, a dog who’s sweet by himself.
Just like a toddler who bestows pleasure unto a home, so as Boogie has brought delight unto us.
But as of today, all of those things now stay behind as reminiscences of our Baby dog. Boogie has been ill for more than a week and has been taking medications since then. He just died early this morning, giving our family a cheerless break of day.
At first, it feels sad that I wasn’t able to carry him on my arms all night long, massage his head until he falls asleep and so I could lessen even just a tad of pain that was afflicting him that night… or should I be just thankful that I wasn’t there and didn’t see him go through his pain. :(
So long, our dear baby Boogie, rest in stillness; all pains are now gone. We love you and we do, already missing you!
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.” ￼
