As I sit in my new apartment with just my TV, computer and bed, I feel extremely happy! I am in a reminiscing mood where I am thankful to my parents for sacrificing being with their family to give my brother and me a better life. What better day to be thankful and to acknowledge that than on Independence Day? A beautiful holiday we Americans celebrate! :-) I’m grateful to God because He has given me this new life, and sometimes it’s hard for me to believe that I was miserable, lonely, heartbroken and so much more about 6 months ago.
I am creating a life here in Florida, and I couldn’t ask for a better one. The only thing I am missing as of now is having my parents a bit closer, but that will happen in time and at the right time. Nevertheless, I’m grateful I have them in my life and that they will always be there for me and I will always be there for them.
When I arrived in Florida less than a month ago, I was taken in by a couple that have been friends with my parents for about 40 years. They treated me and continue to treat me better than some of my family. This is how my experience in Florida started. Could I have asked for anything better? From the beginning God was welcoming me in this life change. As He continues to do say with every passing day.
I am loving my new job! It’s rewarding, and what I love the most is that God is with me every second of everyday. I have never felt so comfortable and secure in a job as I do in this one. God is showering me with blessings. I really can’t complain. He has really proven to me that:
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it. – 1 Corinthians 10:13
He gave me the strength through the adversities and is now giving me a whole new life that is better than I could have ever expected. God has been merciful with me and for that I am forever grateful.
So with this posting all I want to do is rejoice and remind you that He is there. He is always there, and accepting that or not is part of life.
