Our fave Connie Ferguson has taken to social media to share a video of herself back on set. Connie can be seen greeting the crew members. We also caught sight of Brutus getting out of his vehicle to greet Mam Connie. He said that her presence has made the whole set lit up.
Connie lost her husband Shona Ferguson on the 30th 0f July 2021 after he suffered Covid-19 complications. Uncle Sho, as he was affectionately known, passed away at Milpark hospital in Johannesburg.
At the beginning of August Connie opened up about ‘Carpet Thursdays.’ “Today is carpet Sunday. I miss my person. Every Sunday we’d just lie on the carpet and talk about everything under the sun or nothing at all. We’d just lie here and be with each other. I miss his physical presence so much but I feel in spirit that he is still with me.” Shared Mam Connie.
She revealed that since her husband fell ill, she hasn’t had the confidence to lie down on the carpet.
“I haven’t had the guts to lie on the carpet. Since Sho got sick, leading up to his elevation to glory, I just didn’t think that I could do this on my own so today being the 8th day of month eight of one which is 2021, it dawned on me that it is a new day and I bless God for that. I bless God for…I call it the supernatural strength because I don’t know how I am able to do this, it can only be God. I wanted to share a word with you,” she continued.
The actress added that John 14 verses 16 and 17 have given her the strength to carry on.
“When I read this, I just thought about everything that happened and thought about how as Christians we love to say ‘he who is in me is greater than he who is in the world but how much of that do we believe because when things don’t go our way we fall part and feel betrayed and I did. I did. I asked a lot of whys. I asked a lot of why him, he was so young and still had so much to offer. I asked a lot about our plans, what happens to our plans now. So many questions.” She added.
The actress says that she is reminded that the plans that God has are not always our plans. Her faith in God has kept her going. She believes that there is always a bigger plan when things do not go our way.
“So I was sharing that word just to say sometimes our plans are not THE plan. There is always a bigger plan but even when things don’t go our way, we need to remain faithful. We need to have faith. It is very easy to be fearful. I mean, It is very easy to run to that if you are scared,” she said in closing.
