A blessed sick day =)

(Taken from: http://www.bbc.co.uk/cumbria/content/image_galleries/halloween_pumpkins.shtml?28)


Not feeling well today. I could hardly drag myself out of bed this morning! I am suppose to wake up 6 in the morning but I kept on pressing the snooze button and went back to bed. At last, I stop the alarm clock and wanting to get out from bed. I then realized that I can’t! My body was totally out of my control for few minutes and my nose was blocked. I didn’t have the strength at all to even wake up. There I was, staring at my ceiling with my eyes half opened. Yes, I did went back to sleep eventually. I only manage to drag myself out of the bed at 7am. Thank God for His alarm clock! I felt the dizziness and realized that I was having a slight fever. DARN! I got no time to loose and I will be late if I am not out of my bed!


Instantly, I grabbed my towel and had a quick bath. Round about 730am, I was out of the house. Well, I think all things are truly well planned by God! The traffic was smooth and there is no sign of jam at all! I think most of the people are excited about tomorrow’s public holiday and decided to take off today as well. =) I arrived safely at 8am and I decided to take a nap in my car. Yes, I was super blur and I forgot to put an alarm to wake me up… This is what happened when you are sick! FORGETFUL AND BLUR! No I was not late for work, in fact I manage to wake up (miraculously) at 845am! Ahh.. God is truly good to me!


Here I am, before my laptop, feeling so darn blur and sick…. Well, one thing I can be sure of… My head kept on thinking about the message I heard and the pictures I saw yesterday. I couldn’t stop myself from thinking about the kids in Sri Lanka. How they were to go through their day to day life and how they were to appreciate things that we constantly take for granted. Are you grateful to have a house? A bed? A toothbrush? Toothpaste maybe? Well, you must be thinking 633 is crazy but look at other people and their life! How many of them have the privilege to have a house with cement as their flooring? How many of them have the privilege to use the toilet? How many of them are privilege to have a bed to sleep on? There are so many out there, living a simple life. Too simple until the extend that they don’t even have furnitue in their house! Are we not suppose to be thankful people and appreciate what God has given onto us? Truly, He is good but how many of us are taking His blessing for granted?



Lord, help me to be a thankful person and to appreciate your most precious gift from above.
