Si Dios Kiera

If God wants it

This is taken from the Spanish "Si Dios quiera," "If God wants it."

Formed in a more Catholic ethos, our elders were more conscious of the divine will.  Nothing happens without God's knowledge, without God's consent.  Either God directly wills something to happen, or God passively allows things to happen on their own, without His interfering with it, in order to allow a good thing to come about in time.

So, many conversations went like this :

Jose : Ngaian para un falak Hagåtña, Maria? (When are you going to Hagåtña, Maria?)
Maria : Agupa', si Dios kiera.  (Tomorrow, if God wants it.)
