Choosing to Love

Choosing to Love

You don't choose whom you love.
He chooses them.
If you had that choice to choose;
then the road would be simple.

Whom he puts in your life, is part of your test:
to bear with them, to accept them and most of all to love them
despite all that they may agitate you with.
After all, they come from Him and they return to Him,
just like you did and will do.

"...And We have made some of you as a trial for others: will you have patience?And your Lord is Ever All-Seer" (Surah al-Furqan:20)

I got this from a friend of a friend's blog.. somehow, I feel a great deal better :-)

Yesterday, I sent a message to kak Sufi asking if she was going to a cetain kenduri of a mutual friend as I wanted to pass along the wedding present. She took a long time replying my message but finally replied saying that she might not be going too. However, at the end of it, I was suprised when she asked, "You ok ke?"

Guess I forgot, kak Sufi is kak Ana's friend AND she knows IM too.. I felt a bit sad for a while, but perked up instantly when my student came up to me telling me she scored an A in her test! Thank God for the small things :-)

Then this morning, I was suddenly weary of the fact that is was exactly a week ago that I got 'the news' and I felt my mood going downhill for a while.. until I came across the poem above! Yeah, the joys of literature, who said they don't have the power to move the world?!
