Disasters and Troubles



For more than 2 weeks, the haze has covered and blocked out the clear blue sky.

Widespread and indiscriminate burning is the common cause of haze in this part of the world.

Visibility is getting worse and worse each day; really terrible if you are driving.

The weather is getting warmer and the sun more intense. Those who work outside can really feel the heat and know just how hot the sun is.

There are many suspected and confirmed cases of H1N1 in the country and 8 persons have died. Tension and worry have filled the air, and you can really feel the apprehension of the people around.

The newspapers today say that the El Nino is coming back to stay until October.

Disasters and troubles come in succession so fast while we are in this vale of tears.

Not many children are playing outside the house. Many are down with flu, cough and fever.

The hospital is full of patients everyday, seeking for treatments.

It is said that the cost to diagnose and to treat H1N1 is expensive.

Just wonder how the present government can manage...

Oh, just how shocked and helpless we can be when disasters and troubles come together.

But we are not to despair. We are to persevere in faith, not looking at what is seen, but at what is unseen, fixing our eyes on the LORD Jesus.

God knows how much we can bear and will rescue us in due time.

Glory be to God on high.

Your article doesn't say where the pictures were taken, so I'm not sure where the disaster is. Sorry to see your having troubles, will keep you in my thoughts.

When things get tough, you see 2 define groups of people, those that roll up their sleeve and get to work to help...pulling people together for the common good, and those that want to make a buck and take advantage of the situation to better themselves. Thankfully, the first group is the larger group and prevails.

Keep the faith, and hang in there.
