Time of silence is now over and I have to get back to work right away.
I thank God for the great holiday I had. For once this year, I had time to forget all the hurdles and challenges that come with work. There was ample time to be there for the family more than before as my wife and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary. We traveled around visiting places, friends and relatives. It was indeed time of refreshing.
I had also time to reflect on the journey I have traveled so far and also focus on the future. The joy from the Lord that comes with knowing that you are traveling on his appointed way assured me that I am not alone in His vineyard. He is ever with me.
As I thought about the future dream of serving Him further, my long-time forgotten hobby of poetry, suddenly, sprout up. For first time in five years, I wrote this poem:
THE SWEET DREAM
The dream is sweet
I can’t wait for it
Sowing the seeds in pain
Knowing sweet fruits I will gain
Realistic about it I have to be
But from a far I can see
Many rivers are there to cross
For it can’t be realized without a cost
It will never be easy that I know
But by His grace I will still sow
His invisible hand will guide
The appointed doors will open wide
All in all, it was a great and refreshing vacation. Glory be to God who supplies everything we need in Christ Jesus. AMEN!
