God's Light Shines!


A year later since the pandemic, so much still happening.

Situations test one’s patience.


Every day, for me at least, is a work in progress, keeping calm and mindful.

The doorbell rang.

Toto the gardener asked to speak to me.


I came down to meet him and he showed me a bicycle.


Since the pandemic, Toto has had challenges commuting home.

One morning he mentioned to me that he was looking for a bicycle.

I told him I’d see what I can do.


Quite frankly, I didn’t put much time into trying to look for one.

I forgot all about our conversation! 


Alas! He finally found one that was being sold to him for $50.


Toto then expressed that he didn’t have the money to pay for the bicycle.

I asked him to wait while I headed back to get the cash.


I thought to myself, how blessed I am!

To be able to pay kindness forward at a very low price.

The reward is a hundredfold!


Toto gets to go home to see his family.

And for me, a day well accomplished!

God’s light shines and illuminates!
