When I asked my mother why she hadn't gone to church, she said she was awake practically the whole night and was feeling too tired to go out. She decided to stay in and have a rest instead.
Later, one of her church friends called her to tell her there had been a lot of traffic on the road due to some event and a lot of buses had been diverted.
It was then mum realised her insomnia had been a gift that had saved her from that hassle.
She thanked God for keeping her at home.
One doesn't have to go to church or any religious organisation to be with God, God is everywhere.
