The good and sad

It was a raining Monday this week. I am still recovering from my illness; could feel the chill in the air and I am much prefer to stay indoor more nowadays than caught in the rain.

A normal Monday except I needed to send hubby to airport for his morning flight to KL.
Hubby receiving his award on stage

List of winners

He was attending his "Oscar-like" award in KL that afternoon. Congratulations dear for winning an award. 

And then, in the late afternoon, I received a call from my dad, conveying a sad news on a passing of an uncle.

My mum's older brother passed away that same afternoon. He has been admitted before CNY for a heart corrective surgery and stayed in the heart specialist centre since then. It was a shocking news to everyone as my uncle was fine (other than the blocked arteries). And what more devastating was my mum's second brother passed away last July. Not even 1 year and now, this older brother has passed on.

Life. Sometimes I do ponder over life. What if and what not. The people close and around us leaving us. Every day we are faced with challenges and bumps.

When you are disturbed...ponder it on your beds, and be silent....and I will both lie down and sleep in peace; for you alone, O Lord, make me lie down in safety ~ Psalm 4: 4,8

My prayer : Heavenly Father, thank you for the comfort and peace you provide in times of loss. Help us to share your love and grace with others. And thank you for the wonderful blessing and miracles you shown us everyday. Help us to seek the path of righteousness and remember that our salvation is in you each day. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Congratulations to your husband. What an exciting moment in life!

At the same time, so sorry to hear of your loss. As I have hit middle age and now lost a few elderly relatives, I realise how fragile life is and just how short it can be. Amen and God bless you and your family in this moment of sadness.
