Christmas is NOT over!

How was your Christmas day, friends? Some people are actually very relieved that Christmas is over together with all the festivities and the business that went along with it... Well, for me, Christmas is not over, Christmas is everyday, all year long... because, every day I need Jesus, every day I live for Him, through Him and because of Him. :)

Last week had been a relaxing one. We've stayed at home and I liked it. Resting and taking my mind off from study for a bit. I did get quite sick for a few days, though... I got an ulcer, which painfully locate itself on my jaw! I had migraines for 3 days non-stop, swelling on my left cheek and difficulties to eat. It was kind of having a little diet! I had to eat porridge, simply because I couldn't chew! Phew... Thank God, with a huge amount of orange juice, fruit and veggies, I am much better now.

The weekend was tiring, because we had a fight. Nope, it's never good when we fight... Exhausting mentally and physically for both of us. Being both 'highly' educated makes us both pig-headed! Plus, the differences in principles, family background, origins, make things even harder. However, life goes on because of FORGIVENESS! Yep, that's how powerful forgiveness is! No matter how hurt and painful the fight caused, forgiveness heals. Thank The Lord for that!
Sometimes, in these 2 years, we found ourselves like water and oil, questioning 'why' on our marriage. But, really, it's just an illusion, which during angry moments, overrides the truth. The truth that The Lord chose the two of us to be together for a purpose and that He never fails. And I hang on to that truth, always.

And, today, though the University is still officially closed, here we are both sitting on our chairs to do our work... which, instead of doing that, I am blogging bwahahaha...
