When Words Are Not Enough....
Today is Sunday and just like the past Sundays, I never had the chance to attend a Sunday mass. I'm staying in a Buddhist country and Catholic churches are very very few here. Actually in my work place, there is none.
Praying alone during my solitude moments is my only way of communicating with God. Within the confines of my own room, at my work, wherever and whenever there is a need to talk to God is my actual time for prayers. Whether it's about asking for guidance, seeking help, asking for blessings or simply thanking God for a meal that is served before me...it's my own way of talking to HIM.
For my Sunday's reflection, I wanted to declare this day as my own "Thanksgiving Day". Thanking God for all the blessings that He has given me all through these years. God has been so good to me in so many ways. I may not have a perfect life, but God has always been there for me during the saddest and happiest times of my life. Though I've been into problems, and sometimes into pains, I'm happy to say that I've been blessed with a lot of things. I got a good job, a stable income, nice house, supportive family and good health. What more can I ask for? A simple happiness? My Mom despite of her old age is still very much alive and living with us...enjoying the precious years of her life.
I thank God for all these things, for all the support and guidance He has been giving me. For giving me the courage to face all the problems, for giving me the strenght to face life's difficulties, for allowing me to learn from my mistakes and for letting me to live one day at a time.
When words are not enough to express my gratitude...
When words are not enough to show my appreciation for everything...
I will just seal my lips and convey my heartfelt thanks more than words can ever say.
As deep within me...in my heart, God knows what I want to say at this point in time,
"THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!"
