Phillipines Landslide

Let's remember in our prayers and light a candle for the people of the village of Guinsaugon, on the island of Leyte in the Phillipines where a mudslide has buried the village and 3000 people are missing.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Wow.
Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy!

The photo of the man holding the small child he had rescued reminded me of the photo of the firefighter holding the child after the OKC bombings.

what a world we live in.
