I fully agree with you. These typhoons one after the other truly tested our faith in God and it is something to be proud of that Filipinos have shown their resiliency and have not at all really despaired. instead, their faith was indeed strengthened and they accepted what happened without losing hope and faith in God. I extend my belated but sincere sympathies for you my friend and all those who have suffered because of the typhoons. I guess these typhoons were sent top test our faith and we can proudly say that the Filipinos passed the test with flying colors.

I'm glad to know you're safe. Marikina was devastated by Ondoy for a long time I believe. A few of my friends live there in Marikina and all of their possessions got washed off by the flood . The silver lining though was they were safe but they would need to start all over again from scratch. Good thing a lot of people are there to help. I'm sure it's the same for you. We were also affected by the typhoon wherein it almost covered our 1st floor. Thank God we have a 2nd floor so we didn't have to go somewhere else. Another thing good about experiencing things like this is that it brings people together in unity! God Bless!

You're right in there. Ondoy was the wake up call to respect mother nature or you might just taste its wrath. Pepeng was just another wake up call what she can do to us if we keep on ignoring her warning. Ramil was just a reminder again ang again that we need to heed her calls to reform our treatment to our environment. And Santi seems to be just a small reminder that she can do the worst things again but spared us to give us time to recover from the losses we have had. All four calamities are just reminders for us that we need to be aware how we are to treat her rightly or else we might just experience the same thing over and over again.

Yes it is true, it is during calamities that people learned to go back to God and have more faith in Him. We have no one to hold on but Him whenever storms and floods and any other calamities strike. God certainly can control the nature, but he has reason why he allowed lost of lives and properties. God's wrath is manifested in those typhoons but certainly his love has never left us. We can always pray to Him and trust. Only our faith can save us.
