Just a week a go, this same day an accident happened at home. I recieved a text message from my younger sister seeking for help since mother kept crying because she cant see. What happened was that some one was cutting bamboo and mother is just near got hit and the left eye was a ffected. We thought it was just a mere foreign object but, I was shocked tot hear that theres a surgery needed. This was the first incident like this in our family and surely I tried to be strong and tried to calm down for the sake of my mother and sister. The surgery needed a cash deposit and I didnt have the source of the money but God really works in miraculous ways and He gave us what we needed for the operation. It took 45 minutes for the the operation to complete and Im thankful that God guided the doctors and the people in the hospital. Now theres another operation for the cataract next month and we are getting ready and still praying that things would be great. God is in control.

I'm glad your family was able to find the money to get your mother the care she needed! I hope that she heals quickly and well, and that the surgery was a success. I also hope the cataract surgery goes well. My grandmother's have both had that done, and they both are extremely pleased with their results.

I'm so glad everything went well. You're right. God is in control and He is awesome. I've said a prayer for your mom and her cataract surgery next month that all will go well. My mom has cataracts but she doesn't need surgery yet.

Sorry to hear about your mother's operation. Is her eye ok now? That's life, as long as we have faith, miracles do happen. Having said that, it does not mean we sit there and wait for miracles to happen. Perhaps that's how god works - help those who help themselves when they are desperate.

My Mother had an eye operation before in his one eye and it was succesful and that she'll have another eye operation in the coming days both due to cataracts.I'm confident with both operations cause God is on her side always. I'll help pray to your mother's upcoming operation. God bless...

Hi Zelmarq! I am sorry to learn that your mother has to go through that a year ago but I am equally glad that everything turned out alright. I do believe that God will always make a Way for each and everyone of us. I do believe that God is in control. But I must be honest with you that sometimes, I doubt if He is looking my way and wonder how come He helped others immediately and with me, I have been waiting for His help for more than ten years now. I know I have no right to question Him since I know He knows what is good to all of us all. I am just being envious somehow to others who have answered prayers but at the same time I am genuinely happy for them that their prayers were answered. Take Care and God Bless! Happy Mylotting!

Those were the times that we are helpless and just lean on God in times of trouble. IT was one of the times in my life when i have surrendered all to God and I lift everything to him even my worries. During the operation I shared the gospel to the three health aides but only one of them accepted, its something that we can lift all to God and still obey his great commision to share the gospel to those who are not yet christians.

Hello dear Zelmarq. I am really so sorry that your mother got her eyes hurt and affected from the cutting bamboo, but glad to know that the operation is going smoothly. I hope that your mother's affected eye will soon get well after the eye operation and some days' rest. All the best wishes to your mom. Be blessed.

Good thing your mother was able to go through the first operation well... i remember when my mother had to go through an operation to have her ovaries removed because of some tumor... but that was like 9 years ago... and now everything is fine... so i am sure that with your love, support and faith... your mother will be able to survive any operation to come her way...

Im praying for her second operation this coming june 6, I pray that she will be ok, I know she was nervous on the first one and now she is nervous on her upcoming operation.

9How awful for your mother and your family Zelmarq! I am glad to hear that she has had the operation she needed and all has gone well! I will keep her in my prayers for her cataract operation - a few of my aunts and a male friend of mine have all had this operation and swear it has transformed not just their sight but their lives! I hope your mother has a similar result!xxx

Yes, it was really an accident that we never expected to happen. It was also a blessing in disguise coz we found out that the left eye has a cataract that needs to be operated.

The second operation was also successful, they doctor made a great job making mother comfortable and took really good care of her.I praise God for His works in our lives, making it all possible. Though I didnt have much sleep for I was really worried for the past days before the operation, I still thank God for I was able to sleep well last night. Prayer is the only communication we have t God when we are left helpless in situations in our lives, and God is faithful to help us in those times in our lives and we just have to put our trust in Him. Thank you and have a nice day!

It is a blessing that you were able to raise the funds for this surgery. It sounds very serious.

Yes, you know there are things in our lies that is beyond our control and we just have to trust to God everything and everything will be ok. In helpless situations we can trust God and lean on Him for our needs, just cast our burdens to Him and He will take care of the rest.
