We went home the same day because the doctor didn't found any wrong about my mother. He said it was just because of stress and over worked. She just need to rest. From that time my promise to the Lord keep on coming to my head. I was just 9 years old but I already mean what I said because I believe. It was a promise from the heart. So, I had the desire of knowing HIM more.
We were very poor that time, our situation still so fresh in me because its my driving strength of the present. We can hardly go to the city where the church is located. We cannot afford the fare which was only P1.50, but my mother was true to her promise that she will let her children, her family know the Lord. And I was also eager to know more about that said GOD. I wanted to know him more. So, what my mother did, we always brought vegetables from my father's garden to sell to other church members so we have extra money when we go home and of course can pay for the fare. We always went to church early so my mother has time to distribute and sell the vegetables before the service starts. And while she's roaming around, I stayed at the church listening the praise and worship team while they practised. And started to have interests on their music.
Until one sunday... as usual my mother went house to house to sell and I was left in the church. In one corner, there was this pretty, so lovely woman sitting, there was a notebook open and a pen on her hands, she glanced at me when I entered the church and smiled:) I look at her back in bewilderment, with appreciation on her personality and wondered who is this woman???
This woman has a great part of the big change in my life and to my family. The transition begun and knowing him more started when I came to know this woman. On the next post will be about this woman and why and what was her part in my life and on 'the promised'. Keep posted!
