My grandfather was confined to the hospital last Monday night. The doctor's advise was to undergo operation, but it is too risky for his age. It was a tough decision to deal with at that time, yet his children together with my grandmother decided to take the risk and chose the best solution. Tuesday night, my grandfather undergone the operation. Before the operation, my grandfather had a 50-50 chances and he had prepared himself for the consequence. According to my grandma's story as she shared to me this morning, there was at that time a 19 year old guy who had an unsuccessful operation. He died caused by cancer of the brain. My auntie who was then holding a Php. 1000 asked my grandma 's permission to donate the money to the guy's mother. The mother cried into tears for the donation. When it was my grandpa's turn to be operated, despite the fact that it was too risky, they believed that God will make a miracle. Yes, the small amount of donation was a blessing in disguise which made the operation successful. My grandpa is now recovering and an update is that he can already make a joke with his attendants and can even write. God does miracles.

God must have recorded it in His book of record. What we give to this world comes back to us. Giving is receiving. The receiver must have been overwhelmed by your aunt's generosity which made her send out her prayers of thanksgiving and blessings at that time and took effect on your grandpa recently.

That is what we thought my friend. God really do know what we need and am grateful that He have given my grandfather an extension. A simple good deed can lead to miracles.

I'm sure your aunt didn't make the donation as a payment to God, for your grandpa's health. The miracle didn't happen thanks to that donation only. I'm sure there were more others good things that your family had on God's records. Now we all thank God for the success of the operation. I hope your grandpa will soon be able to go home to do other good deeds that God loves so much.
