And the second part here – Tears in my eyes (The Cindy Story Series) Part 2
Shanny broke down and wept. She didn’t believe she could do this. It was shocking! Her mom was in utter shock. Wonder if she could recover from it. Her daughter had fired at a most valued work of art hanging by the window. The duo cried on each other’s shoulder. Cindy held her daughter and felt disappointed in herself. Today is the 14th day of the month, a day Ken pays a visit to his daughter. He hardly comes in the morning but just decided to get breakfast for Shanny as a surprise. Ken knocked severally before Cindy walked up to the door with a swollen face to let him in. The whole scene had taken about three hours and she could not make it to work again that day. Unexpectedly, Cindy welcomed him with a hug and wept on his shoulders. Ken felt lost until he sighted his daughter who was also in tears. Cindy would not let go. Ken tried to be a man but tears rolled down his cheeks as he remembered his lost love. After about 15 minutes, Cindy said, “Ken, I am sorry, I love you but you are more righteous than I am. I don’t want a divorce no more. I want to be with you once again.”
Ken was stunned and could not speak. She turned to Shanny and said, “Baby, I am sorry for making life miserable for us all but I’ll tell you what happened after all.” The room went still as she began to tell the story.
Morale: It is better to watch things happen and embrace wisdom while waiting for God’s intervention. It will definitely come, often times, when you least expect it.
