The Morning After

What does one do when you wake up to disaster?

It is Surreal.

The Earthquake/ Tsunami aftermath is giving me goosebumps all over. I hear voices in my head screaming "The End is Near!" "The End is Near!"... makes you think, actually... "Are you ready for the end?"

I have a zillion thoughts swimming in my head. I got up really early today to catch the "morning after" news on Japan. More than 1,000 expected dead. Yes, hundreds dead, more missing. What do you do when tomorrow comes and you find yourself with nothing? Lucky you if you made it through.

Makes you reflect on life and how we always complain about our circumstances when the truth is, possibly, someone, somewhere else in the world (or even right next door) is having it much, much worse.

Reminds me of this post made by CVS on her Chuvaness blog, when she spoke about "Kulam" and recommended the bible verse Psalm 91.
Safe in the Lord
1 Those who go to God Most High for safety
will be protected by the Almighty.
2 I will say to the Lord, "You are my place of safety and protection.
You are my God and I trust you."

3 God will save you from hidden traps
and from deadly diseases.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you can hide.
His truth will be your shield and protection.
5 You will not fear any danger by night
or an arrow during the day.
6 You will not be afraid of diseases that come in the dark
or sickness that strikes at noon.
7 At your side one thousand people may die,
or even ten thousand right beside you,
but you will not be hurt.
8 You will only watch
and see the wicked punished.

9 The Lord is your protection;
you have made God Most High your place of safety.
10 Nothing bad will happen to you;
no disaster will come to your home.
11 He has put his angels in charge of you
to watch over you wherever you go.
12 They will catch you in their hands
so that you will not hit your foot on a rock.
13 You will walk on lions and cobras;
you will step on strong lions and snakes.

14 The Lord says, "Whoever loves me, I will save.
I will protect those who know me.
15 They will call to me, and I will answer them.
I will be with them in trouble;
I will rescue them and honor them.
16 I will give them a long, full life,
and they will see how I can save."

(New Century Version)

I want to say so much more, but words fail me right now. I have friends in Japan, a nephew in Tokyo. They are safe - thank you, Lord. Thankful that net connection wasn't cut with the quake and they got to update.

Stay safe, everyone.


  1. chuvaness had the gall to post a bible verse? wow. ang bait niya. i used to follow her blog but lately it is being used as a venue to bash a certain actor and his gf. not a fan of theirs but it makes me cringe when i see posts like that - charitable kuno, religious kuno - then she and her friends make fun of people na hindi naman sila inaano. how insensitive and mean

  2. Well, she has every right to post whatever she wishes on her blog because it is HER blog. But she really IS charitable and religious.

    If you're not comfortable, then don't read.

    Take everything you read with a grain of salt. :) It is how I deal with the craziness every day brings. God bless you!

  3. yup, i know some peeps like that - they do one thing then do another to make up for the one thing they do. bash people then give to charity. hear mass, pray the rosary then make people laugh at the expense of others. very funny huh. thanks for the grain of salt tip hehe. crazy world indeed. keep on blogging :)
