Here Comes Pepeng

As of 11 AM MLA time, PAGASA said that Pepeng is forecast to bring more rains and very strong winds in the Northern part of Luzon, including Metro Manila by tomorrow mid-day or the afternoon, once it makes landfall.

This news, if not scary, is very alarming. Last Saturday, Manila was struck by Ondoy carrying heavy rains resulting to flood that took almost 400 lives (and still counting), injured many, left families without homes, children without a place to study, limited food and water and illnesses that needs immediate attention. Just this week, an earthquake shook Samoa and nearby islands, followed by a tsunami and another earthquake.

Many have said that the end is near.

But I hope not.

Let us all pray for the loved ones we lost during the typhoon Ondoy and for our safety now that Pepeng is on it's way.

Hold on.

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength
For each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way
By a roadway in the wilderness
He'll lead me
And rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His Word will still remain
He will do something new today
