About a month ago, while I was in my bedroom with my dog enjoying the cool air coming out from the air-conditioner, I picked up a book at the corner of my bed: it was a gift from a dear old friend who came visiting late last year. Somehow, the book (which has begun to collect dust) caught my attention. As soon as I read the first page, I was hooked. Before I knew it, I found myself already on page 49.
“God leads us. God will do the right thing at the right time.”
Then BOOM! There it was…the answer to all the problems I have been telling God in all my prayers and whines. It was so true and powerful that I went under the blanket and began sobbing uncontrollably. If you have been a long time reader of my blog, you’d probably understand why…
Fast forward to present, I am in the midst of packing to move to a perfect home! A LANDED house! A home with spacy lawn and backyard; a place where my dog could run freely and a place where I can plant flowers and vegetables. God is indeed a good God. He made me wait for a long time because He has plans for me. He kept His promise and He got me the perfect home – I couldn’t ask for more!
“Let us therefore boldly approach the throne of our gracious God, where we may receive mercy and in His grace find timely help.” (Heb. 4:16)
And here I am, seated at my almost-bare mini studio office posting this.

Forgive me please for the messy background. Please also ignore the empty plastic bottle under the table, that was the work of my dog! He enjoys crushing empty bottles and he leaves them all over the house! As you can see also, the book shelf is close to empty. I have removed some books, photos and decos off the wall. I have about 2 weeks left to pack everything and I am not even close to packing a quarter of my stuff. Eeeep!
But as God has said, don’t worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will have it’s own worries. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.
To my good olde friend, Mozad.. THANK YOU for the gift of love and the book “Traveling Light” by Max Lucado. May you be blessed abundantly!
