THANK YOU JESUS! All praise and honour goes to you. I’m definitely not deserving of this but you are merciful. Some time within the past year, I recalled walking the Law school grounds with my parents, and praying together. If this is the door that He has prepared for you, He’ll open the doors. Further, during Sunday service, Shawn told me that he heard from God that I would be going to NUS Law, and I claimed that promise. After being rejected by Yale-NUS, i was initially distraught and extremely dissatisfied, being uncertain of what He wanted upon my life. But I eventually understood that God was protecting me by not sending me there, as reiterated by Proverbs 3:26 “for The Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being snared.” Thank You for Your promises, as seen in Proverbs 2:8-9 “He guards the path of the just and protects those who are faithful to Him. Then you will understand is right, just and fair and you will find the right path to go.” I am extremely appreciative of the grace that abounds, after being rejected by SMU law last year. “For He knows the plans he has for me, plans to prosper me and not to harm me, plans to give me a hope and a future.”
Sometimes she seemed like a woman without skin. She felt everything so intensely, had so little capacity to filter out pain that everyday events often seemed unbearable to her. Paradoxically it is also that skinlessness which makes a poet. One must have the gift of language, of course, but even a great gift is useless without the other curse: the eyes that see so sharply they often want to close. Her eyes were astoundingly blue and astoundingly sharp. Nothing escaped her. She saw everything, and since most of what there is to see in the world is painful, she often lived in pain.
