Day 16- iffy

May 30

Recently I have been hearing a word”iffy” used. I heard my supervisor use it today- she said,” the justification seems a little iffy”. I guessed it meant “vague”. An interesting word.

Kat has taken two days off work- she works another work in the night and the strain is too much for her to take.

Daughter 1 has managed to secure a seat- Pathology. Husband is running around trying to get her a place to stay in campus.  The hostel is inside campus and the rooms are so small – just enough for one person to stay in but accommodates two. Daughter is not sure how she can live there for 3 years. She has had a privileged life but now must live on little. An opportunity to put faith in action. Opportunity for prayer and courage. The college where she secured admission is my alma mater.

They are now on their way to our hometown to empty her old hostel room and take her things to the new place.

A few years ago, a doctor from my previous work place wrote a reference letter for me when I applied for the current job. It was a peculiar situation because I had been out of work for a year and a half and when I asked this researcher doctor for a reference for a job, he readily agreed.  But over the past three years, I have had no contact with this researcher. I have seen him around town at various research conferences about town but he has never met my eye and I thought I had offended him some way.  I tried talking to him direct when I saw him but it seemed he turned away. Two days back on Day 14,  a thought came to my mind – I wish that doctor would call me or I could talk to him and clear any misunderstanding he might have about anything. Believe it or not, yesterday night I see a message on my phone which said, I am Dr. H. When is a good time to call you ? Miracle ? Yes, of course. Today I returned his call. He wanted help with getting his daughter some research help. I agreed of course. It was a way to repay my debt. I am so grateful for this opportunity.


When trouble comes knocking at the door, let faith meet it there. There are miracles around us even now. We need to kick anxiety out and replace it with faith.
