Love Makes The World Go Round


I know you've heard this blog post's title a gazillion times before. It's probably your definition of love, perhaps the one you write on your friends' slum books at all times. Lol. But then, these are just words and they'll always be words unless defined. 

For the past two weeks, I've been receiving messages from some of my followers asking me if I'm okay (which is really touching, I feel loved heehee) as they heard about the Super Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan which literally took the Philippines by storm. I live in Luzon so we were spared from this calamity. However, the Visayas region of the Philippines were not.



It was the strongest typhoon ever recorded and it definitely brought devastation (physically and emotionally) not only in the Philippines, but around the world as well. Thousands of houses, lands, and establishments in ruins, thousands of lives lost... Watching the news regarding this is already painful, so I just couldn't imagine the agony the casualties are going through. Depression is not even the right word to describe what I feel towards this ruthless catastrophe. I'm quite sure you guys feel the same way too. We can't change what has been done and we can't fix what has been broken, but we can always start again. Everyone has problems and everyone experiences pain because this is not a perfect world. It's a slice of what we signed up for in this mere existence. And I suppose this is the part where I say, "It's not how many times you fall, but how many times you get back up". 


If there's one and probably the only good thing that this trying time has achieved, it would be the moment where diverse countries unite as one. It's totally overwhelming how different nations from all over the world came together to send their love and help to the Philippines in this tough instance. We can't thank you enough for everything you've done. We will never forget. 

There are still a lot of people crying for help. As for me, I know I had to do something that's why I made contributions as much as I can.  And to everyone who's reading this, it is never too late to lend a hand. It may sound so cliché, but it is always better to give than to receive.




Let us all remember that whatever problem comes our way, God is still stronger than all of them. And no matter how many times we feel like drowning in life, remember that Jesus our Savior walks on water. Just have faith.
