But for now, This is how they are showing love.

We are all in the throws of fighting one of the biggest battles of our generation.The enemy has everything going for it : it is invisible, it is highly effective, spreads like wildfire and does not discriminate… though I hear it likes men more than women. It has become a very real and tangible fear…

Him and me

When we started our lives together, there was uncertainty- Does he really like me?. Is he kind? I mean we hardly know each other. There was a longing I could not understand… Missing him when he went to work. But we had happiness and silliness in our tiny apartment in Kowloon Bay. I wondered who…

She asked me …

For the last couple of days, the girl has been asking some soul searching questions: Why did I come before Sean? Why is he my brother?  The first time she asked me this, I went biblical and told her about John the Baptist. The importance of his role in the preparation of coming of Christ…

Angels that cross our path

In life, we encounter events and people that seem to come to us at the right time or right place. Some may call it God ordained and some chance and some other- universe coalescing. This past couple of week, the boy has been having a really tough time at school with many issues and this…
