When I made up my mind And my heart along with that To live not for myself But yet for God, somebody said Do you know what you are getting yourself into
When I finally ironed out All of my priorities And asked God to remove the doubt That makes me so unsure of these Things I ask myself, I ask myself Do you know what you are getting yourself into
I’m getting into you Because you got to me, in a way words can’t describe I’m getting into you Because I’ve got to be You’re essential to survive I’m going to love you with my life
When he looked at me and said I kind of view you as a son And for a second our eyes met And I met that with a question Do you know what you are getting yourself into
I’ve been a liar and I’ll never amount to The kind of person you deserve to worship you You say you will not dwell on what I did but rather what I do you say I love you and that’s what you are getting yourself into
He said, I love you and that’s what you are getting yourself into

Thank You Beatrix!! I am encouraged! You too, have a wonderful year ahead and may the Lord be your strength & joy! :D
Turning twenty-four.Looking back on the past one year, I am truly amazed by the grace of God. Through the ups and downs, I have tasted His goodness and faithfulness. Glory to Him. For the days ahead, i just want to hang on to His guiding hand. I want to be teachable and submissive. I know without Him, life has no meaning. I want to truly live life.

Today at work my 87y.o eldery patient bursted into tears while telling me about his deceased wife.
He just started talking about how he has been leading a healthy lifestyle then his life at the retirement village. I just stood there nodding and listening to him.
He told me about his wife. They were together for 65 years. He was 20 and she was 19 when they got married. She passed away 2 years ago after hospitalized for pneumonia. She had Alzheimer’s disease. She had to stay at nursing home eventually when her condition worsen. At first, he was staying with her at different respites. He was convinced to be with her, to look after her. But eventually he had to let her go. He said it was heart-wrenching to visit her 3-4 times a week at the nursing home.
Tears streaming incontrollably down his cheeks when he shared how he held her hands at the hospital when she became unresponsive. That instance i could picture the familiar scene right in front of me. A surge of emotions came over me and i couldn’t hold it back. So i let the tears flow. I pulled some tissue papers for both of us.
i touched his hand and reassured him that he misses her. very much. and it’s ok to feel how he felt and let it all out.
He misses her terribly. I felt that.
i asked him how they met, hoping to take him back to happy memories and lighten him up a bit. He said he first saw her at a party. She was pretty. ‘Nice hair’, he said. (men notice hair, hair plays an essential part in attraction) He was keen at dancing then and asked her for a dance. But she said she didn’t know how to dance. But he was already in love with her. He told her ‘i’ll see you again next week.’
so he put on his best suit, he said…and went to her house. The rest was history.
As he continued to pour out his heart content, he was crying out ‘I will stay true to you…i will stay true to you.’ as if to his wife…
he shared how he pray to God and one day he will see his wife again when Jesus comes again, they will be lifted from the grave where they would be buried together….he believes in God.
He went on talking about his children, his love for them, all 6 of them.
Then we went on talking about my story when he asked about my background etc.
He told me to ask God for a man that will stay true to me. I nodded.
I came back later and he seemed settled. i guess he just needed that someone there to listen to his heart content. My heart just went out to him. God bless his soul.
