It was wonderfully made...

He said to me:
"Goodbye 2008, you sucked!
I hope this year will be better than last year.

He complained to others:
"Man! You don't know how crappy the year was for me.
Glad it is over."

I ignored those comments,
and resists the urge to shut him up.
Because, we're enjoying after all,
and we want to pass the year joyfully.

"I mean, I broke up with my girlfriend.
Was sulking for quite awhile, the pain was unbearable.
I couldn't focus on my studies and my life was a mess!

You're single right, Ean?
You can't possibly understand this pain I am going through.
How do you see the past year?"

Honestly, I wished he hadn't said that.

For when he took those words out of his mouth
is when I just had to reply:

"Well, not exactly. I did go through a breakup.
And it was the single most painful experience I have ever felt in my life.
I cried out louder than I have ever had.
My tears dropped more than it ever did.
It was harder for me to sleep than before.
My life was messier than I ever thought it could be.

As I took more steps in this journey called life,
I was angry
and questioned God for the things that happened the way they did."

He stood there in awe at my sudden outburst of words,
and in disbelief he asked:
"Since when did you have a girlfriend?"

"A girlfriend I had not." I answered.

"For it was my mother that I had a breakup with.
One day, God called her to be with Him,
and my mother in her weak image,
went away.

But I got slapped in the face one day,

when I realised I have been selfish all this while.

Now I look back,

and am glad it happened the way it happened.

Embracing the blessed hope,
I realised all perseverance in suffering has brought me to maturity

So you wanna know how I see the past year?
I see it as wonderfully made."

Ok. Tq.
God Bless.
