Psalm 96:4

"For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise..."

Lots of space!

The day I took this picture of myself was one of those very rare times that I have actually had the whole bus to myself. I was on the top deck and no one else came on for almost the whole 20 minute ride I took to the Bedok shopping area. I sure enjoyed the quiet ride and I thanked the Lord for a simple way of showing me how much He cares about me by giving me all this space to enjoy. 
Looking out the bus window at the East/West MRT train track which runs over this street.

Another interesting thing happened to me a few days before that I was very thankful to the Lord for. I had gone to an appointment in the Bedok area and I was going to then go on down to the City area by train. At the time I "messed up" and got on the bus which actually was going the direction of our apartment. I was a bit upset with myself for not getting on the train and now having to go to the next MRT station on the bus and catch the train from there. Anyway as I rode along I just decided I might as well go on home and not even mess with going to the City. About an hour after I got home I noticed an email from a co-worker mentioning the tragedy that had just happened at the Bedok MRT train station during the previous hour. A man had gone down on the tracks and was hit by the train. My heart was so grateful to the Lord for confusing my direction and getting me on the bus instead of the train so I did not have to witness that incident. What a good reminder to listen to those promptings from the Holy Spirit as He speaks to our hearts. Trust and Obey!
