i know i've been away for quite a while...
and yes a new typhoon is brewing in the north
people there have been evacuated.
i just can't imagine what else is going to happen.
my best friend, joanne, from dagupan, pangasinan,
one of the hardest hit, with 15 ft. of flood waters,
remains hopeful despite the situation.
oh, so much for that...hope abounds, yes it does. one of the good signs is this...
may i share with you a favorite song...
if all the people around the world
they have a mind like yours
we'd have no fighting and no wars
there would be lasting peace on earth
if all the kings and all the leaders
could see you here this way
they would hold the earth in their arms
they would learn to watch and play...
Oh my sleeping child,
the world's so wild
but you've built
your own paradise
that's the reason why
i'll cover you sleeping child
the sleep of a baby
undeniably a vivid image
we envy the serenity
in the stillness of the night
they put across a message
the day is over
the sun will be out again tomorrow
in silence, they convey the thought
that we must not look at what has been \
nor should we fear the morrow.
how do they get into
not by being uncaring or indifferent
but the fruit of a heart that
leads to spirit serene
let us be at peace in the loving arms of the
Father and be free from the yoke
of our daily restlessness.
for since the time we were
in our mother's womb,
the Father knew us, and
formed us, fashioned us
in His image and likeness...
"before you were conceived i wanted you,
before you were born, i loved you,
before you were an hour i would die for you,
this is the miracle of life...
go gently through life...
