Beautiful Sunday # 23 - Beautiful Life

Two more weeks, whew! My 12 hours of working schedule would be over. Time really flies so fast. September is over and two more months, it will already be my favorite time of the year.

As I'm overwhelmed with too much work, something happened last Thursday. The incident changed my outlook over the next days.

I woke up feeling every inch of tiredness last Thursday. I begged for another 15 minutes and as expected, I overslept. Tired while having the need to hasten things, I planted my own disappointment and unnecessary stress.

My irritation subsided because I was ahead of my expected travel time. I almost thought that the heavens are conniving with me. Two to three blocks away from the train station, the jeepney which I thought as my tardiness saver encountered an unfortunate accident. Another jeepney went carefree and took advantage of the clear and wide lanes. The reckless jeepney driver ended up bumping the rear side of the jeepney, where I was complacently seated.

I was able to reach work safe. Except for some minor bruises on my arms and thighs, I never suffered from any serious injury. I was able to have my 7 am class, my students waited for me despite being late for 30 minutes.I was assigned to a fully airconditioned hall for that class, yet I started to feel that unusual cold sweat. It was only during that time when the realization that I almost lost my life occurred to me. The accident happened in front of the cemetery where my friend Anna was laid to rest. At some point, I felt that Anna protected me. But above anyone else, I believe it's Him who saved me.

I know this is quite an unusual post for my Beautiful Sunday. To be honest, I can't think of anything to post except for this awakening experience. Before and above anything else, I should be grateful of the beautiful life that has been given to me.

I would love to read your beautiful posts too.

  6. Dear Diane,

    This is not an unusual Beautiful Sunday at all! It's an even more beautiful Sunday as a result of God's hand of protection and safety upon you. Bruises and pains are short reminders which I trust you won't soon forget.

    Blessings,
    Kelley
