Death and December are two words that should not be put together. It is heresy. December, the final stretch of the year, is when all things glow bright and beautiful, where children frolic under a mass of colorful lights, candy and gift wrappers. It is supposed to be light-hearted and whimsical and delightful, just as how every year should end. Death is not a part of its vocabulary. But then again, Death answers to no one.

This week, once more, I am reminded that life is fleeting. Everything we kow and loved will be altered as one flame gets snuffed out. It is a hostile and all-abinding truth. We are all under its spell and our time is ticking.

Friday

An auntie died and the family went out early in the morning to join hands with our grieving kin in this sad, sad time of their life.

And then, somewhere where it was most unlikely, came a blessing. And it was God telling me, “I can bless you in the most unexpected season of your life, so you just hold on and keep on keeping on.”
