A White, Pink, and Yellow Rose

S_170

It has been 2 weeks since the so called’ love of my life’ broke up with me, devastated again for the countless times, I really can’t keep track anymore…you would think that I should have been tougher with all the love failures I’ve been through, but no, every time it hurts even more, as if Life isn’t yet tired of messing with my glimpses of happiness…

I am a believer in general; however I don’t pray very often, but I do believe in God, and it’s weird how when we are happy we don’t think much about praying and thanking God for his blessings, we’re just too selfish, only remember ‘Him’ when we are sad…

One day my best friend called me to check up on me, how I am handling the break up and so on… she asked me if I am praying and told me about a Novena for Saint Therese, it’s a 10 days prayer and if my prayer is heard I will receive a flower within these 10 days, she insisted that I pray it with faith because otherwise it will not work out, I promised her I will, but deep down I knew it will not work out, because I have prayed a lot before, asked for sings from God… I never received any sign and never felt God is on my side…

I started praying it, on the third day I was having dinner with a friend of mine, on the way back home, we stopped at the street sign, there was plenty of kids selling flowers, I didn’t care much, suddenly I saw an old man crossing the street with flowers in his hands, I told my friend to call him because I wanted to give him money, I have a weakness towards old people(I always try to help them without taking anything that they’re selling), the old man approached, we gave him money he wanted to give me flowers in return I said: No thank you, I don’t want any flower, the old man didn’t seem to care about what I said, he threw 3 roses in the car, so my friend gives me the flowers; I just stared at them for a while, one was white, one was light pink and one was yellow, they were the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen in my life, it was then when I remembered the prayer, I freezed for a minute or so, not believing that they were the Sign from God…

It was the first time where I feel blessed, that God has finally listened to me and that at the exact moment where I lost faith, he restored it back in me…
