I wasn't sure where to begin and Mr Kwek had not returned from his cycling, so I called the other man who I knew would always come to my rescue- my daddy. And after looking at the photos I sent over, my daddy went home to get his tools and swiftly swooped down to my home to save the day.
Through the whole episode, there was so much to be thankful for. From the fact that I was at home (imagine if this happened on a work day. Horrors), to having a daddy who is a great handyman, to the water somehow avoiding the electrical points of my kitchen appliances (I could very well have been electrocuted eeks!). And I realised that even in such mini crises, God is in control.
What a way to start my birthday. But as I enter into a new decade of life, I guess this is a sign of things to come. The increase of responsibilities, the learning of new skills I never knew I needed before, and the renewed appreciation for our parents. Above all, whatever the decade ahead throws at me, I know I have a sovereign God who is in control of everything. And with Him as the anchor for my soul, I have nothing to fear.
