Out of the blue, when I was doing my routine chin up yesterday, I mounted the bar and a quick flash came to me. I started counting 1, 2 , 3 and then I begin to count backwards from 12 and then 11, 10, 9............................eventually to 1. That way, I have completed 12, a breakthrough for me! Yeah !!!
Was this what Neville was trying to tell us that a series of events would compel us to cross the bridge and upon completion of the event, the wish would be fulfilled ? Now that 11 has passed, the new number 12 is fresh in my mind and I would go on to break it again and again. I am so thrilled that I had stick with it, no matter what!
I am reminded of the plants I had grown and it took certainly a long time to blossom, thank God I waited and get to witness the beauty that God has for me. It truly makes me happy, just like a mother giving birth to her first born. I felt as if I am part of the nature's contribution although deep down I know that is not the case. Watching them grow, day by day, each new shoot coming up, pruning the old ones and watering them, share similarities of how I take good care of my 2 kids as well.
Without fail each morning ,I would prepare their breakfast, ensure they have sufficient to eat and they get to school on time. It is a wonderful feeling to be a father, an experience that one has to go through other than reading from books. That was what Neville wants us to experience as well, scriptures are not meant for reading only but we need to experience them individually. How beautiful that is !
May you all have a beautiful day ahead ........
