My Husband Learns to Say “Falun Dafa Is Good!”
(Minghui.org) I began practicing Falun Dafa in 2007. Before practicing Dafa, I had come down with many illnesses. Besides having a kidney removed, I had to undergo other major and minor surgeries. Getting out of bed was often difficult. My illnesses made me depressed and irritable, and affected my marriage.
I turned to religion and Taichi, but nothing uplifted me or restored my health. I was miserable, and divorced my husband. I was divorced for 13 years when I was given the chance to learn Falun Dafa.
After I began practicing Falun Dafa my ex-husband and I remarried. Witnessing my amazing health recovery and improved temperament, my husband was convinced that Falun Dafa was good. I asked him if he wanted to practice.
He hesitated, saying: “I know Falun Dafa is great. I have many problems, and do not think I can meet the standard. I will support your diligent practice of Dafa.”
Soon after, my father had a stroke. He was confused on and off, was incontinent and had no control over his bowels. He needed a lot of help. It was difficult, but I took care of him until his death three years later. He came to understand the truth of Dafa before his death.
This year, my father-in-law had a stroke. His condition was similar to my father's. After having taken care of my father I was able to let go of the attachments I had regarding his care, such as filth and being burdened. I did not feel any bitterness. My husband helped when he could.
My father-in-law often commented to my husband, “Dafa has changed her so much.” He often repeated the words I taught him, “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” He also said, “Dafa practitioners are good people, persecuting them is an eternal crime!”
I would not have been able to do all this if I were not practicing Falun Dafa. Both my father and father-in-law have many children. I did not complain that I did all the work when it could have been shared among us all. If I did not practice Falun Dafa I would have ended up needing someone to take care of me.
My husband showed his gratitude in front of Master Li's (teacher of Falun Dafa) portrait in our home. He said, “Thank you for my happy family.”
He withdrew from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and participated in petition drives to oppose the Jiang regime's persecution of Dafa practitioners. He likes to read Dafa materials. He would mention the goodness of Dafa whenever he had the opportunity to talk to people. He tells his friends about the CCP's corruption and uses facts to convince them, especially for those who have misunderstood or said bad things about Dafa.
One day he told me when he met a friend instead of saying hello, he said, "Falun Dafa is good!" My husband is forever grateful that the Fa has given him such a harmonious family.
I have asked his relatives to quit the CCP. One day, I met my husband’s former colleague who was a government official. I asked him to quit the CCP. He was surprised when he heard that I was practicing Falun Dafa.
He said to me: “I was surprised that you took the initiative to say hello to me. In the past, when I talked to you, you only nodded your head. I went to your home once, you were not very hospitable. Although you did let me stay for a while. I heard you drove away many others. I am happy for you and glad that you remarried and live a good life now. You look young and healthy. Dafa has changed you.”
Before practicing Dafa, I had a hot temper, and I was unreasonable. I felt that my changes made me a kinder person. I used to look down on my husband’s friends who were only interested in young ladies and gambling. Dafa indeed has changed me. Falun Dafa is good!
