may - an emotional month

I've been meaning to write sooner... but could not find the right words to put right all that happened in May. There were some fun times with my friends (click on the big images for more pics):
- Brendan's farewell party
- Bonfire charity fundraiser night at Gidgegannup
- Amy's birthday dinner at Queen's

And my family have been through lots together in this month... My little nephew Dominic was born on 13 May. Nat got sick three days after the birth and was admitted into the ICU to be treated. They were still at the hospital on day seven when they discovered Dominic wasn't feeding properly and was looking pale and started spasming... that was when they closely monitored him and the next day sent him to PMH's neo-natal ICU. His situation got worse and the doctors discovered that his organs were shutting down and his heart wasn't coping with it all. He was with us until 23 May. It has been extremely difficult for Moses and Nat. But it has been beautiful how my family has been together, supporting one another through this difficult time. We have also been blessed with relatives and friends who have been so generous and loving through this time. My family trust and believe that God has got a plan greater that what we know now.
13 Corinthians 13: 12-13
Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. Three things will last forever - faith, hope, and love - and the greatest of these is love.
