The bookmark that
Adel gave me.
Someone I know had an operation last week. Surgeries, no matter minor or major, are always harrowing, not only for those undergoing it, but for family and friends as well. We stood by and worried, wishing that there was something that we could do to ease the pain, the fear and the uncertainties but there was little that we could do except pray.
The surgeons have done their job. Now is the time for healing – physically, emotionally and spiritually. We want you to know that no matter what, we will always stand by you, giving you all the support that we possibly can. You can always depend on us when you need someone to talk to.
I do not know what faith you are inclined towards but I will lift you up to God in prayer, everyday. When all that is humanly possible has been done, the one other thing that we can do is surrender ourselves to Him. He will never allow us carry more than we can bear. Trust in His Providence and all will be well again. He has worked wonders for me. I am confident that He will do the same for you.
When you feel that the world around you is falling apart, do not lose heart. Remember The Serenity Prayer. It has consoled me many times when I felt that my life was spiralling out of control. Know that irrespective of what your beliefs are, Jesus loves you all the same and is walking with you every step of the way. And also know that we are not far behind should you need us. Here is wishing you a speedy recovery.
The Serenity Prayer
God, give us grace to accept with serenity
