Was für ein Wochenende!
Friday was the fundraising dinner for the Philippines trip, Saturday was D&J’s wedding. By Saturday night i was really pooped.
And then came the news of Auntie H’s passing on Sun. Which coincided with Easter Sunday, and that really gave me mixed feelings. She had been suffering a lot from the cancer for the last 2 weeks, and her death on Sun was a reminder of the hope that we have after we have moved on from this world.
Still had W&J’s wedding on Sun night to attend, the mission trip gathering on Mon night, my FYP presentations to prepare for on Tue and Wed. It was a time of trusting God, learning lessons from Him and enjoying the blessings that He provided me along the way. Like the reminder of being available to Him, which is more important than talent or abilities that we can use. Or that God’s power is perfected in our weaknesses, and how the FYP presentations went really reflected my nothingness without Christ in me.
In between there were the unassuming highlights of meeting up with JoshT on sat morning, having 2 really good conversations with my father on life issues. And to learn to talk less and listen more. And the realisation of the fleetingness of life and reflection on how to live my life.
I’m really thankful I’ve not had time to dwell on the weight of all the events of the past week, but at the same time sad that i’ve not used my time well enough, when i could have had time to reflection on the gravity of many issues that have come up.
If you read this, do call me and talk, I might not be able to share all that has happened with you, but it’ll help me, and i’d appreciate that 🙂
