Strength, Sickness and The Holy Water

"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me." - (Philippians 4:13)

I prayed and my prayers are answered. I asked for His help, for strength and he had given me encouragement.

It's hard when family members get sick. My daily routine got affected; still, I'm thankful I'm able to manage it all somehow.

My husband had minor health problems. I accompanied him to Medical City so he can get medical attention. His condition was nothing serious. He just needs medications for two weeks.

Then my kids. Their fever went on and off. My son's fever started before his last quarter school exam while my daughter's started after our Subic trip. There are days when they feel good, but their temperatures would rise in the afternoon and at night. My husband and I then decided to bring them to their pediatrician's clinic at Manila Doctor's hospital.

Good thing, their sickness isn't a symptom of anything. They don't have throat infection. They just need to drink more water and medicine for their cough. Of course, an increase in vitamin C intake would do help.

Thank God, now my kids are feeling good already. My son doesn't even need a skin test for Primary Complex.

+ Holy Water

I felt God's presence and I gained strength after our family heard a Saturday mass. The church inside our village isn't fully constructed yet, but it had never been a problem. It even paved way for my kids to be healed. The parish priest showered us with Holy water. He didn't know that my kids are sick, but he poured some holy water in his palm and touches the forehead of my son.

Indeed, God works in marvelous ways!

“For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,” says the Lord. - (Jeremiah 30:17)
