RECONCILIATION - a story of love, tragedy, disappointment, betrayal, forgiveness and reconciliation...

RECONCILIATION - a story of love, tragedy, disappointment, betrayal, forgiveness and reconciliation... The old saying goes...God is not hasty...but he is mindful... Adam and Eve... it was a big student love. At first, it was a crush that grew into a big love. They met during their studies at the university, they started dating. Both came from religious, Christian families. They planned a future together... So at home they introduced each other to their parents and announced that they would like to get married. The parents were quite satisfied, because the young people had finished school and found a decent job in the big city. So the wedding was... the bride Eve in a beautiful white dress in front of the altar, where they promised loyalty and love to the grave. Adam put the wedding ring on his beloved Eve and they shared their first kiss. Wedding celebration, everywhere - joy, hope, laughter.


They went to live with Eve's parents, who had a bigger house. They found a good job in the city and so they were happy and satisfied. In a short time, Eve became pregnant and everyone at home was looking forward to the baby...parents and husbands. Adam also worked overtime at work and so he didn't go home until late in the evening. He used his father-in-law's car to get home faster.

That's how it was on that fateful, gloomy November evening. It was drizzling and the city was covered in fog. A real unkind, soul-sucking time. In the evening, Adam set out with his car in this darkness. He had to go slower, because he couldn't see well. Suddenly he saw lights opposite and some the car went in the opposite direction and was rushing straight at him. He wanted to pull the steering wheel to the side of the road... but it was too late. The oncoming car was already in it... There was a rumble, a screeching sound, the shattering glass bounced on the road... Adam he still felt that he had been hit by a car. A small cross hanging in the car ended up on his face. He fell unconscious... Someone called an ambulance and the fire department... in a moment a wailing ambulance arrived, followed by the fire department and then the police. Both men were barely pulled out from crashed cars, covered in blood and taken to the ambulance and quickly to the hospital... Both had to be operated on, but they were saved.

Adam did not return home, it was already late in the evening and Eve was afraid, her parents comforted her, don't worry, he will come. The mobile phone was out of order. She called the office, but the doorman said that there was no one in the building anymore. Eve was desperate, where to call ...how to find out what is wrong with Adam...she called the hospital, they told her that if they knew they would call back. They also wrote down the details of the police, that they would call if necessary...Eve couldn't sleep, she sat crying with her parents and they waited. Before midnight they called the police.. your husband had an accident and is in the hospital, they are operating on him, we found his documents. Eve could no longer perceive anything, she collapsed to the ground and fell, her parents rescued her. They did not have a car at home, because Adam had to go to work, so he quickly took a taxi to the hospital. Eve also went with her parents, she didn't want to stay at home. At the reception, they were told to wait... for the surgeon to come, who was on duty. But they understood that other surgeons were urgently called to work to to sudden 2 operations. The surgeon has finally arrived... you are Mrs. Eve... your husband is after a difficult operation, but don't worry, his condition is stable. Go home now... and come tomorrow morning... Eve heard it as if in the dark, and her parents almost had to carry her back to the taxi and home.

No one blinked an eye, didn't sleep... In the morning they quickly dressed and again took a taxi to the hospital for surgery. They still had to wait and the wait was terrible. Finally, they were admitted by the head of surgery... Adam has already recovered from the operation, his condition is stabilized... but I have to tell you one sad news. We had to amputate Adam's left leg from the knee down. It was completely scrapped and there was a risk of bleeding. There was nothing more to be done with that leg, only to amputate it. He doesn't know about it yet, we have to prepare him for it. Other he has no serious consequences, only abrasions and cuts, but he suffered a shock. The other man who flew into him is much better off... he only has a broken arm and abrasions... Eve's world collapsed... she no longer noticed the primary and fell. .they had to resuscitate her and take her home to lie down and give tranquilizing injections. Her parents jumped around her, treated her...Eve thought it was her death...she would have a permanently disabled husband in a wheelchair...there was a ringing in her ears and her heart was bleeding. Adam's condition was improving, they went to see him in the hospital... The driver of the oncoming car was to blame for the crash. he had been drinking and was returning home from a party. Adam tried to run his hands over his sore leg and suddenly discovered with horror that he had no leg from the knee. He understood the terrible truth and his whole world collapsed. The doctors had to tell Adam that they had to amputate his left leg ...but don't be afraid, you can live with it...Eve came again and hugged the lying Adam and both cried bitterly...The doctors told Eve that she will be in a wheelchair as an invalid and then they will see what can be done.

They had a hard time at home, especially Eve's mother. My dear God...will she stay in a wheelchair...all her life? he will be disabled and we will have to take care of him and then especially you Eve... and you are also expecting a child with him... You realize that it will all be on your shoulders... what a terrible life it will be. You are still young , beautiful...and this is how you will be buried for the rest of your life, Father and I will pass and what will you do with yourself after that? with a man in a wheelchair and a child... What will you live on... those social benefits are not enough to survive... and why did you study for so many years and bother with learning...dear Eve, you have to consider all this, where is it still time...after all, you could start over and have a good time...Eve's mother's words froze and pierced her heart like a sharp knife...she liked Adam, she loved him, they married for love, but what of that she'll stay after a few years... she'll end up as a frustrated, broken woman... she'll have to pull for two and raise a child... Eve's mother, however, did not give up...and cut directly into Eve's heart...dear Eve, you know that we love you, but my father and I agreed that we would propose to you...that you divorce Adam and go to abortion...it's his child...and this is how you get free...listen to us...we want to save your life and happiness...after all, you will find a new partner...and start a new life with him... and you will be happy and have a family..,Eve's head was spinning and the whole world..she would prefer to die at that moment...No, mom, no..that's terrible, I can't do it...mom hugged her...can you and we will help you... we just want your happiness... The days dragged on at a snail's pace, slowly. Eve kept going to the hospital. She saw how the nurse gave Adam a bowl for his stool, then a pheasant for peeing... and showed Eve how she would have to help Adam. The stench and humiliating wiping of the ass and cleaning Eve it appeared to be an insurmountable resistance. It bothered Adam a lot, but he couldn't help himself. Being guided to help others...

Eve came home crying and told her mother...mom, I'll do as you told me...I can't handle it...mother hugged her and we cried together...I'm so glad you listen to me. , disabled and a terrible life awaits you... First, we'll arrange an abortion, because it's high time... Eve resisted that... she should kill her child... but her mother convinced her... you have to... you're not the first or the last... and how will someone marry you a man with a stranger's kid..get it...You have to be completely free...


And so Eve had an abortion...she thought she would fall under the ground...it was terrible...it was supposed to be a boy...Mom comforted her, took care of her...they didn't tell Adam anything about it. Now you will apply for divorce... we have acquaintances in court... they will speed it up... your consent is enough that you don't want to live with Adam. Eve went with her mother to the hospital and straight away told Adam...

Adam... I have to divorce you... .don't be angry...Adam stared incomprehendingly...what does he say...Adam, the mother-in-law started...you can't want Eve to ruin your life with you as an invalid...understand it...you will be a calico all your life and he will have to take care of You...Adam with his mouth open... and what about our child ???....Eve burst into a big cry...mom took her place...you know Adam...she is no more no child...Eve got him married...get it...Adam turned pale as a wall...thought this was certain death...Goodbye Adam...please don't call me again and we won't meet again ...said Eve bitterly...and she and her mother closed the door....

Adam couldn't survive it...he decided to kill himself...he asked for sleeping powder...but he took the whole box from the nurse while she was cleaning him, so she didn't notice it and poured all the powder into his mouth and drank it down with water...Let God is merciful to me... this has no meaning to continue living... The nurse was looking for a box with sleeping pills, but she couldn't find it...she walked around the rooms looking for it...she came to Adam's bed, who was fast asleep and saw an empty box under his bed. they took him over, but nothing... they quickly washed his stomach and saved him from poisoning and death at the last moment... But Adam didn't want to live, he just couldn't walk... he was thinking about killing himself. But in the hospital they were paying more attention, when he wanted to get out of bed, they tied him up. The doctors sent a psychologist to him to change his thoughts. A religious nurse called the hospital priest in the evening. The priest came and talked to Adam, at first he didn't want to, but later he told him about his suffering. The priest told him that he would come to him again and if he wanted to confess... he was available .Adam didn't know, it's important to confess, when he felt anger, unforgiveness and disappointment in himself. Every memory of his ex-wife Eve was eating him, burning him like fire... I can't do it myself, it's all very devilish... it's just not possible so forgive... Betrayal and abandonment, when he was at his worst. Their love died out and only cruel pain remained...

Later, the priest also brought young couples to Adam, who devoted themselves to people in need, and Adam gradually got out of the worst. They told him about God, his merciful love and dedication to serving him... Adam listened, he was a believer, but so classically, it seemed too distant and embellished to him. His life was hard and cruel. Many people prayed for him, the spouses mentioned it to others, and the priest served for him St. mass. Adam tried to pray... but at the words Forgive us our sins, as we also forgive our guilty... he stopped.. it didn't work.. Until one day it all fell out of him, he didn't believe himself... he felt that the rays of God's love finally broke through his cold, dead heart, and it was filled with love and peace that he never dreamed would ever come. It was a great miracle of God, outwardly invisible, but inwardly it fully touched and converted him. After that he was able to ask the priest for confession and was able to forgive from the heart, although he himself did not know how it happened and was possible. Then Jesus came into Adam's life and his love and all the darkness and darkness disappeared. Adam found his dead life again and was spiritually resurrected to a new... life with God. After the divorce and separation from Adam, Eve lived with her parents. She found a well-paid job in the city and tried to forget everything before. She killed every memory of Adam and their previous life together. The memory of the abortion burned and tortured her the most. She was afraid God's revenge. She stopped going to church, to the sacraments and no longer prayed. She had friends who made her happy... Eve did well, you have your common sense... you would have struggled with an invalid all your life... all messed up and a child on her neck... Any woman would do that in your place. Her friends invited her to various entertainments and parties so that she wouldn't be sad. That's how she met the young, handsome technician Carl at a company party.

Carl noticed her sitting at the table with her friends and came to ask her to dance...Eve went...Carl was a nice, intelligent and handsome guy...many women secretly desired him...but he remained alone. They finished dancing and she sat down at the table with her friends... They attacked her like wasps... she grabbed the most handsome guy, so he chooses properly... and you caught his eye. You are incredibly lucky. Eve was embarrassed... you cows after all... it was just a dance... But Carll came again... would she not go for a walk with him... her friends enviously chased her... but go when he calls... So Eve went. They walked outside in front of a fun bar and they were talking. Carl invited her on a date again and Eve finally accepted and they met... Carl invited her to his apartment, but Eve didn't want to... it's too early, we don't know each other that well... About a month passed and Eve was with Carl... what she didn't want happened. Carl immediately asked her to marry him... that he was madly in love... and although Eve tried to keep her distance... she succumbed to it herself... she also fell in love.

And so some time passed and Eve brought Carl to her parents to introduce him...her mother was delighted...such a gallant, respectful and handsome guy...Eve...don't wait...take him...he has a job, he is smart, polite and he likes you...Eve didn't even want to believe it...but in the end she agreed and the wedding was...only at the office...She moved to Carl's apartment so they could have privacy and so they started living together. A year passed, a second, a third... but Eve couldn't have a child... she secretly blamed herself that it was a punishment for having an abortion... 5 years passed... everything worked out and they were happy. It was just before Christmas, Christmas carols and songs were playing everywhere, and Eve went to a big department store to buy presents... for Carl and her parents. It was already evening, everywhere was full of lights and full of people. Eve was carrying gifts in her bag and was crossing the road. Suddenly she felt a terrible blow to her back and she was thrown to the side of the road. She was hit by a car that she couldn't see from behind and the driver didn't pay attention... She remained lying on the side of the road... she screamed, moaned... passers-by called an ambulance and wanted her somehow help, but she couldn't stand up. The ambulance came, they loaded her inside and took her to the hospital. She had to be on a moving bed and they took her for x-rays... and examinations... a broken disc in her back and a broken hip bone. The worst thing is that she couldn't feel her legs and couldn't move them. She asked them to call her husband Carl and her parents. They flew to the hospital and were horrified by the accident. Eve was slowly put to bed and the doctors considered what to do next. We will have to operate on the disc on her lower back, but they were damaged nerves that she couldn't feel her legs. And so the galleys and a sea of pain began for Eve, even after the operation she couldn't stand on her feet. She remained in a wheelchair. Carl took care of her, but gradually his effort and willingness disappeared. When the doctors said that she was very little chance that Eve would ever again she walked, her legs would remain paralyzed and she would be permanently confined to a wheelchair

She will require full care. Carl paled at the news, Eve's parents and mother cried that they would take care of her... but they realized that they were older and their strength was leaving them. Eve was already at home. Carl is becoming withdrawn, he was quiet, he was hardly at home. Eve felt that their love was growing cold. She had to move in with her parents, because Carl did not take care of her. He rarely went to his house. Until he didn't come anymore. Eve called him, what was going on... at first he didn't answer.. .but then he talked to her...you know Eve, I can't take care of you and I don't even have the nerve...understand it...I'm still young and this way I would ruin my life...which would have no perspective with you ...we will separate and divorce...Eve cried and understood the terrible truth...And I already have a new acquaintance, a younger engineer, and we are expecting a child...Eve turned pale and could not speak. I will send you the divorce certificate, as well as your things. ..don't call me anymore and we won't even meet again...take it as a closed, done deal...
Eve's whole world collapsed, she couldn't even cry anymore... in terrible, mental pain, she turned to God with a request for help... She cut God out of her life for a long time and now she had nothing to cling to. Her life seemed completely corrupted, destroyed and she was still in front of her like a dirty, stinking rag. She remembered with pain that she had done the same thing to her Adam years ago and now it came back to her like a terrible boomerang. She understood that it was God's punishment for what she once did. The only support were her parents and her mother, who made her happy and tried to encourage her. She stayed at home in a wheelchair. Before long, her father had a heart attack and died. Her mother couldn't take it and she went crazy, ended up in a psychiatric hospital. Eve was no longer in control to live...everything fell on her, the last hope went out...She was thinking of a way to kill herself...One field nurse went to her for rehabilitation and exercise. Eve cried and told the nurse that she didn't have to go anymore. .because she doesn't want to live anymore... but the nurse comforted her... dear Eve, come on...everything will turn for good...and she gave her a picture of the Virgin Mary-Helper in Need...there is a short prayer...pray her, the Virgin Mary will help you...Eve didn't believe it anymore, but she tried to pray. Eve was left alone in the house, without help. Then this nurse told her... you know, there is a rehabilitation institute, paralyzed patients go there for treatment, it helped many... you make an appointment there... trust me ...they will really help there...and there is a good staff, one of my friends works there. So she helped arrange a stay in that rehabilitation institution. The ambulance came for Eve, the nurse packed her up and so Eve went to the rehabilitation institute. There she was accommodated in a room with an elderly lady. She was very nice and pleasant, so Eve was satisfied... She was dependent on someone else's help in a wheelchair... the worst it was to go to the stool and have a bowl and then to urinate... even diapers. It was for Eve, still as a young woman, after 30, very humiliating and she was ashamed. But she had to get used to it. The institution was full of disabled people, people wheelchairs, who could not walk, or whose arms were paralyzed, but there were also those lying after injuries who could not move. It was a terrible world of human misery and disease. Eve was already numb from so much misfortune that befell her. She suffered terribly when thinking about her mother that she has lost her sanity and will live out her life in a psychiatric hospital...

Eve already fully understood how human life and happiness are fragile and everything can change in an instant. One can plan anything in vain... They drove her to rehabilitation, massaged her legs and lower back, smeared ointments, washed and exercised. Eve could not move her legs, she just watched what the rehabilitation nurse was doing with her legs. She prayed a prayer from the image of the Virgin Mary... She asked God to end her suffering and take her from this world. After rehabilitation, she was waiting in the rehabilitation room, when the nurse takes her to her room.

She noticed that the door opened and an old lady was sitting on a wheelchair and pushing the cart...her old Adam...she looked as if at an apparition...that's not possible...the orderly just looks like him... she saw that she was limping a little, but she was walking well on her own. Her heart was pounding and her mouth was wide open... it seems to me... it's some kind of dream... where would Adam be, she hadn't heard about him for years and didn't know if lives... The nurse came and took her to the room... in the room, Eve excitedly asked who the nurse was who was carrying the old lady in the wheelchair... The nurse smiled... this is our rehabilitation worker Adam... do you know him? ??...Eve wouldn't care for blood....no, I don't know him...he just reminded me of someone...And the nurse kept chirping heartily...our dear Adam is the best person and worker we've had here...Everyone they like him here... from nurses, patients to doctors. I believe, he is an extraordinary person. He once had a car crash and had his leg amputated from the knee and they did a plastic surgery on him, so he has that leg like his own, he is a little lame, but he walks on his own, sometimes with crutches, but he is fully self-sufficient and lives here in a company apartment and works as a nurse and physiotherapist at our institution...Eve listened to the nurse with her mouth open. My God, it's like in some strange dream...Eve said to herself.. You know, he is really a very good and kind person, still a young person, every patient only wants him for rehabilitation, he is really an expert, responsible and honest at work, he also works overtime and for free...And you won't believe that many people started going to his exercises and their health improved...And he is very religious, he goes to church and ministers when he can. Everyone likes him here...he is he fully deserves it and lives modestly, he doesn't grab money or take any bribes, like some physiotherapists... He doesn't talk about himself, so we don't know anything about his life... Eve almost fainted from amazement and surprise... My good God, just so he doesn't see me here, I have to be careful... she said to herself.

Please, nurse, I would like only you to do the exercises with me... The nurse looked surprised... yes, I will, but if I take a vacation, someone represents me, and Adam often represents me. Oh... nurse , please don't put me in rehabilitation with that Adam, I'm begging you... the nurse looked at Eve in astonishment... and I'm begging you and why... the patients are fighting over Adam and you don't want to? I don't want to... well then... the nurse thought that she was probably ashamed of the male physiotherapist and that's why she didn't want to exercise with him...

Eve anxiously avoided meeting Adam somewhere...During one afternoon exercise, the nurse did not come to work, so Adam surprised her and went to the exercise room...he opened the door and saw Eve sitting in a wheelchair...He remained standing in I'm not surprised...Eve would have preferred to fall under the ground...but it was too late. Are you Eve...? Adam asked shyly...Eve just nodded...and what are you doing here, why are you in a wheelchair? Eve started to shake all over...I had a crash and my legs are paralyzed...Eve stuttered...I wanted you to avoid seeing me here... And she couldn't take it anymore and let out a big wail... she covered her face with her hands... until she felt Adam hug her and caress her... Don't cry Eve... you don't have to be afraid of me ...Eve begged with heartbreaking cries and sobs...Adam, if you can and it's possible...forgive me for everything...Adam stood by her and bent over and hugged her...I forgave you everything a long time ago I would never have been able to do it on my own...but God helped me and with God's help I was able to forgive and reconcile with You... Eve was still crying, sobbing...everything rolled in front of her eyes...how she left Adam at the most difficult moment...how she killed their child...and went away...she found a new love who disappointed her just as much, like she used to be Adam... What I did cannot even be forgiven... even if God had mercy on me... I myself cannot forgive such a vile, disgusting betrayal that I committed... Don't worry Eve... I didn't want to live either and yet I live... and God found me and now I serve him through these poor sick people, just like I was...

I

never believed that I would walk one day and yet it happened, they did plastic surgery on my leg and I learned to walk and I can work almost like a healthy person. I was also once sent to this institution for treatment and exercise.. here I learned to walk I also stayed to work here, I completed a health course and they also gave me a company apartment, so I'm happy here... From now on I will go to exercise with you and I hope it will help. I will pray for it and hope that one day you will be able to go too, that God will hear me.

And so Adam went to exercise Eve's paralyzed legs... even during his time off he was with Eve... He brought a priest to Eve and he devoted himself to her spiritually and Eve was happy... so she confessed after a long time and received the Sacrament of the Altar and Adam drove her to the church on St. mass. Eve herself did not believe that it was a reality.. she began to have hope, which was already as if dead. Gradually her old love for Adam, which she had once violently killed and buried, came to life in her. Adam told her... I still love you, I remained faithful to you and before God we are still married...Eve cried again, she could not understand that Adam would still want her...Then Adam proposed to her, if you want...we can also get married at the civil office...Eve in the end she agreed and so they prepared a small wedding ceremony... 2 sisters acted as witnesses... and so for the second time Eve dressed in a white dress and again promised fidelity and love to Adam and he to her. They gave each other new wedding rings... And then they renewed their marriage vows in the church... and thus became the husband and wife that they were...

Adam devoted himself so much to Eve that gradually she was able to move her legs and her nerves responded and slowly Eve moved her legs and later tried to walk. It took more than a year...but Eve miraculously started to walk, albeit only with crutches, but she was able to stand and walk a few steps slowly .It was a great miracle and a success that no one had hoped for... Eve moved into Adam's apartment, and when her mother died in a psychiatric hospital, she sold her parents' house and bought a nice, big apartment near the institution. And after a while the unbelievable and impossible became reality...Eve gave birth to a beautiful boy and then a little girl...Eve and Adam thanked God for such great miracles...Eve gradually learned to walk on her own and took care of her children and her beloved husband Adam, who was her greatest happiness in life, which she could have received in her life, a big win and the greatest gift she could have received from God. Adam stayed to work in the institution and later Eve also started working there...

And this is how this family lives happily, because they were able to forgive and reconcile and find a way to God... God himself can lead such incredible life paths, which is impossible to turn into reality in a human way...

Forgiveness and reconciliation...that's God's way...Let this story also be a lesson for many of us....

Thanks for reading...
