"...and when the numbness
And the terror of your shattered, black,
Dead night is gone...
I still continue - holding,
Your lonely, frail and trembling hand..."
- Arsenio C. Jesena, SJ, Forgive Me - I Am Only God, Yayee 4: Embraced by God (Manila: James B Reuter, SJ Foundation, 2008), 298.
I always thought that being single was the best approximation I could get of God's will for me... I realized that God could call us anytime He needs us to pursue His projects and designs in our lives...
Redirecting my course, with some struggles, of course, I finally gave in... through discernment and with the help of my family and friends' prayers, I knew God led me to "this special person". He has always been here with me and as if with a sweet gentle blow God re-opened my eyes to the beauty of a love relationship... and the wonders of a gift I have always been praying for... that of motherhood...
As a young missionary, I have mothered abandoned children... loving and taking care of them as if they were my very own... our art therapies led me to discover pains and sufferings unimaginable for kids to have undergone at such a young age... surprisingly, while staying with these kids, I was healing my own woundedness.
My exposure with children of different intellectual and emotional levels has enriched me... and made me fecund for the next ten years... my experiences expanded to wider horizons leading me to assist women and couples... and even working abroad to understand the plight of overseas contract workers...
How could I even think of things beyond me when God was already working such wonders?
My friends call me a late bloomer hahahaha! And I was even furious at the thought of change... BUT God works in mysterious ways... and I AM VERY GRATEFUL that God gave me a possibility of mothering my own children in the future...
now, I will have somebody with me to hold "other" children's trembling hands...
