(Minghui.org) I was shallow and arrogant when I was young. I didn’t understand that virtue and morality were more important than an attractive appearance. My marriage was arranged by our parents. She was honest, kindhearted and was a good wife. However, I ignored her and took everything she did for me for granted, only because she was not pretty. I also cheated on my wife and had an affair.
In the 90s, my wife and parents-in-law began practicing Falun Dafa. It was popular throughout China. I thought they were foolish. I didn’t understand why they had faith in spirituality when most people were busy pursuing money.
To my surprise, my father-in-law, who had been in poor health, became healthy after taking up Falun Dafa, and could work in the field. I felt it was amazing, so I was no longer against Falun Dafa.
Several years after we married, I decided to divorce my wife because I was entangled in an affair. The night I told my wife, she didn’t argue or make a fuss. She said she loved me and didn’t want to leave. I insisted so she calmly packed her things. She showed me where she had placed the important things and showed me what clothes to wear at what time. She even returned all the money I gave her.
I watched her as she packed with mixed feelings. She was so calm and compassionate, which made me feel ashamed. I changed my mind and didn’t want to divorce this kindhearted woman. Instead I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.
When I look back now, I’m so glad that I changed my mind at the last minute. I didn’t lose a good wife and thus didn’t miss the opportunity to practice Falun Dafa years later.
My wife couldn’t get pregnant for many years. She took countless medications and visited many hospitals, but nothing happened. After she began practicing Falun Dafa, she decided to follow the course of nature and stopped consulting doctors. Surprisingly, she became pregnant one year later and gave birth to a boy.
However, our newborn couldn’t nurse after he was born. The doctor said he had congenital heart disease. I immediately took him to the provincial children’s hospital for further treatment with my mother and uncle. We were shocked when the doctor said that he had several other diseases in addition to heart disease. My mother and uncle said we had no money to care for such a sick baby, so they persuaded me to abandon him in the hotel.
I wept, but felt I had no other choice. I left the infant with my mother and returned home because my wife was still in the hospital. I cried terribly all the way home for having to abandon my son.
But a miracle happened. Just as my mother and uncle placed a letter explaining my son’s situation in his swaddling, and were ready to leave, my son began to drink. My mother and uncle were excited and stayed for two more days. After another thorough examination, the hospital said my son had a ventricular septal defect. The doctor said it might heal itself, but it could also worsen when he turned seven.
When my son was seven years old, we went to the same hospital for an examination. All the results showed that he was healthy. Twenty years have passed. Bathed in Falun Dafa’s principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, my son has grown up into a healthy young man. He practices Falun Dafa and was admitted into a good university.
Witnessing many miracles that my family members experienced over the years, I decided to practice Falun Dafa in 2016 when I was diagnosed with high blood sugar. I experienced another miracle. All of my symptoms went away as I continued to practice and follow Dafa’s principles. More importantly, I began taking fame and material interests lightly and no longer pursue them.
Thank you, Master, for waking me up when I got lost in this world, for giving me a good wife, for saving my son, and for purifying my soul with Dafa’s principles.
Thank you, Master!
