Heart’s Voice*


Let your words
say nothing but thanks.
Let your heart
beats nothing but love.

In response to Daily Post: Voice

*My heart is currently badly broken by the death of Courageous Caitie. She is a 3-year old Filipina who has been diagnosed with a very rare type of blood cancer. Her family flew from the Philippines to Singapore to have a concrete diagnosis, as no local doctors were able to identify her illness.

I have been following her story. Her parents’ faith is admirable amid the pain they are going through. But above all, I am in awe of Caitie’s courage. She is tough for a three-year old kid.

Now ,she is on God’s loving arms. No more pain. But my heart is still breaking, especially for her mom.

I can never grasp how painful it is to lose a kid you have reared for nine months. I can never ever understand that.

All I can offer now is prayers.

Please offer some for them, too?

Thank you!

      4. Yes, it’s quite far from where I live. And my schedules don’t allow me to travel there anytime soon. So I’ll miss the blooms. 😦

  2. There is poetry in the verse and everything else you say. I will offer prayers along with many others praying. Caitie’s death is awful, just as her family’s faith is admirable. Thank you for telling us and asking us to lay a blanket or prayer over everyone.


    1. Yeah. That is true. I heard from someone, a survival trainee, that the natural cycle of death is that father dies first, then the mom, then the kids. That’s why accepting child’s death is just beyond any pain.

  3. That’s a heartbreaking story. You see real courage and strength, when a 3-year-old can battle with cancer. I think though she is in the best place she can be now, God called her home at exactly the right time, even though it pains her family. 🙏🏻
