Thank you, God

Those who’ve seen me on MSN lately should know what’s been on my lips – Thank you God. He lifted me out of the darkness over two years ago and gently guided me back to what I like doing best. He put me with the right people. He made me wait, to learn patience. Sometimes …

The 174 (part 2)

[If you haven’t read the first part of my story, go here first. ] I sent my car for servicing this morning. Then I crossed the overhead bridge above Bukit Timah road, wondering if I was still blessed with the knowledge of when the 174 bus would arrive. It’s been over three years. As I …
