Now I Pray...

28 September 2009

As what I have mentioned in my pixel bug weekend entry, I wasn't able to find a spot or even a few seconds to pray when tragedy happened. I was totally in shock with the whole scenario. As I sent my warm words of thanks to my blogger friends from around the world for their messages of concern... These words popped on my mind. Now I pray...

I pray that we will be able to overcome this tragedy soon.

I pray that with this experience, we already learned our lesson. Mother nature has been trying to make a point ever since. We were too insensitive to even look back at the damages we made, big or small. Let us not wait for another typhoon or catastrophe to awaken us.

I pray that the homeless will be able to find courage and strength to move on.

I pray that the sick, helpless, the women and children will find comfort soon.

I pray that the men, the protector of each family will also have the strength and good guidance in leading their families for a brighter day.


Thank you for those who offered prayers...
Thank you for those who gave moral support...
Thank you for those who donated food, water, clothing, and offered shelter.
..
Thank you for the brave men who didn't stop with the search and rescue...
Thank you that the typhoon went out as fast as it came in...
Thank you that we are still alive and able...

Life doesn't end here. It may be hard to start all over again. But HE just gave us another chance to make things right. Lets make the most out of it...

Hi Enchie,
Your strength and courage are admirable! I don't know what I'll feel if I am one of the victims. I think I'm gonna die. :( I was watching 24 oras a while ago and I haven't helped myself from crying. Grabe talaga mga stories of survival. I am most affected by moms who did everything to save their children. It was really heartbreaking. I also learned a lesson from a dad who lost everything in their house. He said he's just thankful that he's still alive. It's true, material things can be found and replaced, but life isn't.

We here in our household, as well as our friends here who knew what Philippines is going through right now keep praying for every victim in our beloved homeland...

Prayer and hope is our only shield.
First time ding binaha sa lugar namin at hindi biro ang trahedyang idinulot ni Ondoy.

After reading your entries about your encounter with the harshness of Ondoy, I would like to commend your utmost courage. I also pray that you will totally made it through.
