Let me just begin by stating the obvious: I miss you all.
It has been a week since we had our last photos together. Remembering our graduation day still brings a bittersweet nostalgia. Browsing through my camera roll and even more so our Facebook messenger groups bring hollowness in my heart. I would tear up while listening to Hillsong’s What A Beautiful Name and I would mope around remembering our fun moments together.
Most people know that my younger sister and I grew up without a father by our side. Growing up, I held on to the conclusion that my mom and dad broke up because of personality differences or unfavorable circumstances. But later on, I realized that my mom and dad’s marriage did not work out the way God intended it to be because Jesus was not in the center of their relationship.
God is working faithfully in my mom’s life. Character-building is not an overnight thing, and saying ‘Yes’ to Jesus everyday is not a comfortable journey to take. But God’s grace makes it all worth it. I am still in awe of how God is working faithfully in the life of my mom and my family.
