Thankful Thursday

Lynn is hosting the Thankful Thursday for this month. Head on to her site if you want to share or read more TT entries.

Maybe you have heard of the recent flooding due to storm here in Manila,Phil. We were devastated, the whole Philippines is grieving, a lot lost their homes, some are even worst because they lost their loved ones.

Our house was not spared, inside our house the water was above knee level, outside it's higher than the waist level. But you know what, I still am thankful for a lot of things, I still feel blessed and I am grateful.

Here's why..

1. I am thankful it happened on midday -we are about to have lunch. Had it happen on evening where everybody is sleeping it could have been worst.

2. Grateful that it happeed on weekend. Saturday. I have no office and we are at home. I was thinking if it happened on weekdays and nobody is at home then we could have not saved any single stuff.

3. Our motorbike which was our very means of transportation was submerged. Hubby said we should bring it to repair center and I know it means money, but then when he cleaned it and tried to start it. It is still working!! Thankful for God's protection even to our motorbike.

I am also thankful that in tough times like this, filipinos are united, joining hands in helping the victims. People all over the world especially Filipinos scattered all over the world are helping.

We will move on, we will rise up after this tragedy and we will praise the Lord for He is Good!!

Here are some of the pictures I took during the flood;

Please keep on praying for the Philippines and for the flood victims.

Glory to God for everything is ok with you now. I was deeply touched by your gratitude to God for His care with us, your ability to stay grateful when it seemed everything fall apart.
Your thankfulness was the best sermon, the living challenge. I am proud of meeting you.
Hope we will have a fellowship.
