There are things that we all go through in our lives.
Sometimes our lives are good and everything seems
to go right for us and that makes us happy, but things
don't always stay that way.
There are times when we plan for things that we want
to do with our famlies, or by ourselves. It is ironic, but
somewhere along the line - God has other plans for us.
That is when the unexpected happens.
In the middle of may I had planned to go on a two week
vacation with my family. Six days before, the unexpected
happened. I got very sick, with lots of pains in my stomach.
I had to go to the hospital , had a major surgery and had to
stay there, ten days.
I thought I was going to die, but I didn't - I was sent home,
one week later I had to go back to the hospital. Then I came
back home and I am still under home care. A nurse comes to
see me at home. I am getting a little better and that's why
I'm writing today.
One day soon I will be alright. In God I trust. I also know that
God has His reasons for changing our plans. We should never
question God - He knows what He does and why He does it....
