I am far from religious. The Eucharistic celebrations I’ve attended in the past year can be counted with my fingers. The fact that I’m as good as a non-practicing Catholic doesn’t really bother me much.

But I still believe in God. At the back of my logic-driven mind, I still believe that God is up there watching over us.

The Lord is the first I would thank every time something wonderful happens…

A truck smashed into a hardware store in front of our village. The store’s wall crumbled. I alight Public Utility Vehicles there. Had I arrived an hour earlier, I would’ve been squished. Funny how vendors returned to their places as if nothing happened.

Or when something bad does not happen.
