Early April, I left Singapore for Los Angeles, California for a six month internship stint with an American company for academic credit. Prior to leaving Singapore, I was experiencing a lot of issues with my visa documents. They were severely delayed by three weeks, and initially I thought, “Maybe God doesn’t think this is good for me,” and if so, so be it. But somehow the Lord opened the door to LA, and honestly I did not have any idea what He had in stored for me. But through it all, I was aware that He was with me every step of the way as Psalm 121 says:
1I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
2My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
3He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
4Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
5The LORD is thy keeper: the LORD is thy shade upon thy right hand.
6The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
7The LORD shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
8The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Regardless of how old you are, I am sure your mother nags.
If you would look at the order of the alphabets, 'n' comes after the 'm', and so it is probably very natural for a Mum to Nag!
Our mothers nag at us to eat our vegetables at age 2, wash our hands before eating at 5, to study and watch less tv at 12, about staying out late at night at 16 and what's more, to find a partner quickly at 25 or even at 35! It doesn't stop there...at 40, mums nag about the lack of grand children...and the list goes on.
