God is good, all the time!

I posted these six words in my Facebook profile yesterday after learning that my father's hospitalization bill is within my budget. I felt stupid that I spent one sleepless night just thinking about our finances. By the way, my dad had a mild seizure last May 19, a day before my boy's 10th birthday. According to weather reports, that day was the hottest day in the Philippines so far for 2010. Probably, that's why my dad's blood pressure went haywire.

God again manifested His love to me this afternoon. Before I went to the hospital to settle my father's bill and bring him home, I first went to BPI and withdrew money from an ATM. Only 2 out of 3 ATMs were operational. The other one had the TRANSACTION CANCELLED sign even when the green light above the card slot was blinking. Two people ahead of me had problems withdrawing money from the 2 functional machines. I went ahead even when I already heard them complain. Lo and behold, I was able to successfully withdraw money from the ATM. And I did it twice since I needed 15 thousand pesos! After I got what I needed, all 3 machines went offline.

I just thought of it as pure luck like one time when a supermarket's POS systems booted out after I paid my purchase. The long queue I left behind me had to transfer to other terminals. When I got home, I read a post from a plurkfriend asking if it is already safe to withdraw from BPI ATMs. I didn't know that a technical problem occurred around 2 pm. It made me realize that it was pure divine intervention. And I thank the Lord for helping me out as always.

Oh yes, God is good, all the time!
