Heartbeat

When I saw the heart beating away strongly, my heartbeat increased and yet there was a sense of relief that all is well. “Lord, we are thankful for this new chance to serve you”. May Chin and I still haven’t fully got it all together in raising Gareth, and I wonder whether parents ever get a hang of it since every child is different.

No. 2 didn’t really make it but God’s grace was “sufficient” to get us through. We never expected it both the receiving part as well as the losing part. And personally, I was suddenly speechless and lost in processing the meaning of the ups and downs of losing No.2. And just recently, I heard of a pastor friend of mine also going through a similar experience. Experiencing “loss” doesn’t need a multitude of words… “Lord Have mercy”

Mom was very excited when I told her and her joy was just bubbling over the phone. I jokingly said, “You’re in charge of babysitting this one!” She replied, “No Problem!” 🙂

Now, Gareth is going through intensive training to be the big brother … I’m sure he’ll be going major adjustments. But, for May Chin and I … we’re grateful and we genuinely put our trust in the one who has carried us thus far and will carry us on into the future … which is full of unknowns …
