A Prayer For The Philippines

A significant number of my blogging friends are from the Philippines. If you have not heard there is a large death toll (650 people, mostly children and women) due to strong storms that caused flash flooding while most were sleeping. There are also over 800 still missing.

It was late in the rainy season for Tropical Storm Washi when flash flooding down mountain slopes causing trees to be uprooted trees and swelling rivers that caused the death of hundreds. What is great about blogging is also bad about blogging. I know my friends live in the Philippines but not exactly where. I don’t know whether to breath a sigh of relief or be concerned. I feel for the family’s that have lost loved ones yet I am still left wondering if any of the devastation has touched anyone I know.

This is a busy time of the year and blogging gives way to more important things. because of that lots of people don’t check in, visit blogs or even update their own blogs. I just pray and I ask that you do too, that anyone I know and that they know is safe and secure.

I also ask my friends to make it known that they are safe.
