My Gratitude to Master During the Mid-Autumn Festival
(Minghui.org) It's the Mid-Autumn Festival again, a special time for reunion and appreciation. While we Falun Dafa practitioners in China can’t reunite with Master, my heart is full of appreciation and gratitude whenever I think about my past 14 years of cultivation in Falun Dafa. On this special occasion, I’d like to share my cultivation story with fellow practitioners and express my gratitude for Master's infinite grace.
I used to live a miserable life. Not only because I suffered from multiple diseases, but also because I often had family troubles. This was especially apparent with my husband, who had a bad temper, was always drunk, liked gambling, and even had affairs with many women.
I always admired my sister-in-law, because whenever I saw her, she was always smiling and peaceful. She often told me how she and her whole family benefited from practicing Falun Dafa both physically and mentally. I wished that one day I could live like her.
My dream came true on August 16, 2006, when I finally overcame different obstacles and started to practice Falun Dafa. Since then, my mentality and my life have changed for the better.
My husband and I own a grocery store on the first floor of our building. I am the only one who takes care of the store and also does all the housework. One day it was close to lunch time, and I asked my husband, who was drinking tea on the second floor, “After you finish your tea, will you please take care of our store while I cook?”
To my surprise, he was outraged and started to curse at me. I remembered that I was a Falun Dafa practitioner and that I should listen to what Master told us and follow the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. I didn't fight back and went back downstairs.
However, when I had almost reached the first floor, my husband shouted from above, “I will scald you!” Then, he threw a steaming hot kettle right at me. I looked up, somehow the kettle drifted down slowly and landed on a box on the first floor. No boiling water spilled out.
My husband rushed down and he was shocked when he saw where the kettle landed. He exclaimed, “Amazing! Unbelievable!” But I knew it was Master who was protecting me––he must have caught the steaming kettle in another dimension and put it down.
Fourteen years have since passed. I still always follow Falun Dafa's principles and am continuously improving my character and health. No matter how my husband abused me, I never fought back. Gradually, he changed. He eliminated many bad habits and started to take care of our business and grandchildren. My family life became more and more harmonious. My sons run their businesses well and my daughter is in a good marriage.
I always share my own experience with my friends and relatives, and tell them how wonderful Falun Dafa is while exposing the brutal persecution against Falun Dafa practitioners. I hope more people will be aware of the truth and be blessed.
