Yes, this is currently what is happening in our country. It had been raining for two weeks now. I am safe at home, but my heart and thoughts are with everyone who is waiting for rescue, especially my family and friends who are stranded in the second floor of their house due to flood. I am powerless to do anything but monitor the situation, and pray that God will cover the sky with sun come morning. I pray for the life that was lost, the dangers faced by rescuers, the family who have no place to sleep, the family who fear sleep in this time of calamity. It is not a happy day. But I have faith that we will surpass this storm – for God made humans with hearts that is able to survive the hardest of trials. My love for you Philippines. Stay strong! “This too shall pass.”
