It’s Saturday morning and I am still pondering on what to write.114 submissions are already in.
The ‘End’, seams so final, but is it?
I remember when I was in my third year in secondary school that every thing seemed to end for a while.
My Auntie who was my guardian had to go into exile in another country; her last words to me before she went kept ringing in my ears,
“Go to my friend Frances’ house; she will take care of you.”
There was no time for her to organize any thing, nor for me to pack any thing except a small bag and my schoolbooks.
What will happen to me, I wondered. Suppose my Auntie’s friend refuses to accommodate me, what then? I felt so alone, in a city with many people. I was so lonely, without family to depend on.
My Auntie had always told me that my education was what would shape my future, but
As things were going, there might be no shaping at all. My education seemed to be ending, coming to a full stop.

Life at Auntie Frances’ house was very different from what I had anticipated.
I was cared for in every way, the family showed me love. What a witness!
I completed my ordinary level because my Auntie had a friend, who demonstrated love at all times, indeed there are friends that stick closer …
The Lord Jesus, He is my beginning and end, and in Him I trust at all times
He knows my comings and my goings, and orders my steps.
Jesus says, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending”
What seems to be an end can be a beginning.
