Gratitude: “Falun Dafa and Its Practitioners Are Worthy of Our Respect”
(Minghui.org) I am an ordinary person whose grandmother is a kindhearted Falun Dafa practitioner.
My grandmother asked me a long time ago, “Do you believe in the existence of God?” My answer was, “I would have to witness it with my own eyes to believe!” The extraordinary occurrences I experienced afterwards convinced me that a higher power truly exists in the realms above ours, and this power can change our destiny.
A Difficult Pregnancy
During my first pregnancy, the fetus stopped developing at nine weeks, so in preparation for my second attempt, I had a prenatal exam. It appeared that I had a uterine septum, a congenital malformation where the uterine cavity is divided by a longitudinal partition. The condition causes a higher risk of infertility, miscarriage, and premature birth.
Our wish to have a child outweighed the risks, and I became pregnant soon after. Two months into my pregnancy, I started showing signs of an impending miscarriage and was rushed to the hospital. The doctor said my pregnancy was unstable and recommended an abortion. Even if I was able to bring the child to term, it was likely to suffer from disabilities. Fortunately my grandmother was present to lend her support, and we decided to keep the child.
Soon after I returned home, my grandmother told me, “If you really want this child, you should sincerely recite: 'Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.'” I followed her advice and gave birth to a healthy baby a few months later.
Miracles of Dafa Manifested
Falun Dafa teaches people to follow a high moral standard and to be kind and good. But practitioners have been severely persecuted by Jiang Zemin, the former head of the Chinese communist regime, and his cronies. In this difficult situation, if a person is able to discern good from evil and recite, “Falun Dafa is good,” he will be blessed by heaven. Time and time again, my experience of what we can truly call miracles, has led me to believe in the existence of Gods and Falun Dafa’s Master.
During my pregnancy, I often saw strange things. I once noticed a multitude of white, transparent bubbles around my body. They were light and warm, and they followed me everywhere. About 32 weeks into my pregnancy, I witnessed a shiny, meteor-like object fall onto my pillow. Not only that, the stretch marks on my stomach resembled srivatsa symbols.
Because my entire pregnancy progressed so smoothly, by the time the baby was due, I had completely forgotten that my uterus was malformed. I had a cesarean section by the most experienced obstetric surgeon and anesthetist in the hospital. Awake throughout the procedure, I was able to hear the surrounding conversations and see my child immediately after she was born.
However, towards the end of the procedure, the room suddenly erupted into a flurry of activity. I overheard the surgeon instructing the nurses to get more blood, and the atmosphere in the room became very tense. I immediately closed my eyes to beg the Master of Falun Dafa, “Master, only you can save me. Please help me!”
The rest of the operation went smoothly, and I was wheeled back into the delivery ward, where I overhead the surgeon scolding my grandmother: “Why didn’t you tell us beforehand that the mother had a uterine septum? She had severe postpartum hemorrhaging, and even after using the most effective B-Lynch compression suture method, we couldn't stop the bleeding. I was on the verge of removing her uterus when the bleeding suddenly stopped.” I realized that my request to compassionate Master at that critical moment had saved my life.
A Child Blessed by Dafa
My grandmother would often recite Dafa books for my baby daughter. When she was learning to speak, one of her first few words were “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” followed by mastering the song “Falun Dafa Is Good.” My child is now three and a half. She frequently asks to offer incense to Master and often shouts, “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!”
Contrary to my doctor’s prediction, my daughter is in perfect health and very smart. Many extraordinary things have also happened to her.
My grandfather took my daughter to a restaurant for some ice cream. As they entered the store, my grandfather moved too close to the door and accidentally sandwiched my daughter’s hand between the heavy glass doors. Looking at her hand carefully, he saw only a slightly bleeding scratch on her palm. By the following day, the wound had totally healed and my daughter reported no problem using her hand.
Falun Dafa Is Truly Good
My grandmother taught me that a person must know how to express gratitude. Dafa has given me many blessings, and in return it is my duty to protect the dignity of Dafa. I defend and will correct anyone who slanders or falsely accuses Falun Dafa.
As an ordinary person living with Falun Dafa practitioners, I have experienced firsthand the merciful protection of Dafa and the sincere kindness of its practitioners. I would like to take this opportunity to tell others: "Falun Dafa and its practitioners are worthy of our respect."
