In the last 24 hours, I will leave out the glory I had during the time and focus on the turmoil that was in my life, for 24 hours intermittently. And, I will conclude with the remedy of GK Chesterton and God’s grace (again!).
It started last night, my husband came out heated and angry yet reserved from physical exuberance of his state of mind, except his voice.
He asked me, “Are you going to stop what you are doing?” I asked him, “Is that what you want me to do?” My doings at night has caused him sleepless nights and tiredness, then frustration, then mistrust!
Finally, he said, “Do you want us to separate?” Something to that similar effect as I can’t remember clearly now. I asked him subserviently, “Is that what you want?”
He left our bedroom within an hour.
I spent the day heavy-hearted and thinking about him. I texted him, “Are you okay okay “
Then towards the late/early afternoon, I sent him a picture of multiple red blooming flowers (in Spring)
- God was there!
By the evening, my husband texted our daughter and said he was coming home.
He came home within the hour and I greeted him with a two steps walking towards him, I waited for him to ready himself to go upstairs to our home, I wanted to give him a peck on the cheek – all these, with a very heavy heart because I suspected that this is not the last time of my doings in the night that will anger him.
I went to bed
It was now, and I woke up once again
. . .but I changed.
GK Chesterton’s words read,
“God is strong to exult in monotony.
It is possible that God say every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon.
It may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them.”
So in God’s providence, I changed my doings – in the night, no computers but instead books to read, papers to write, with a pen. No phones at night doing business or leisure. Instead write, and some fresh mango.
Yes, that would make everyone happy, with God’s grace.
This. . . is written with a certain condition of the author. Try and guess what the state of the author was? What conditions? What environment? Why does the author write in certain punctuation and grammatical ways? There is no wrong or right guessing.
This helps to build the imagination and the understanding of state of the writing by the author. In time, it will develop in the young reader’s mind a function that is very important in life. All this is accomplished by studying literary arts.
