A super typhoon is coming. Everyone in our place is worried but prepared. This typhoon has an International name Haiyan but when it enters the Philippines, it will be called Yolanda.
People have evacuated to schools and other safe areas and different agencies have prepared for the worst. As of now, the typhoon is nearing our place.You can see the image below where the storm is still approaching our country. We live in Palo, Leyte, Eastern Visayas and it is currently Storm Signal No.4 here. This storm is said to be the most powerful typhoon in 2013 according to the US meteorologist and is classified as super typhoon Category 5.
Okay. So much about all that typhoon info.
We have prepared everything from batteries to food. But still I am worried and scared. This would be the strongest typhoon I'll ever experience in my entire life. Sigh.
We are just waiting for the power interruption. While there is still electricity, I am writing this. My prayer goes to all the Filipinos especially those who are in the evacuation centers, those who are near the seas, near mountains and each and everyone who are in their homes. I am worried because hubby is not with us. He is with his parents. I asked him to stay with us but no one will accompany his parents who are both sick. Okay. We are with my parents anyway. The thing is, we are both worried that he is there and we are here. We pray for each other's safety and have constant communication.
While everyone is worrying, Bella is just playing. Just the same- scattered toys, jumping on the bed, running to and fro, and she is even watching Mickey Mouse on YouTube right now as I blog.
While everyone is worrying, Bella is optimistic that the sun is coming instead of a storm coming. She said, "The sun is coming! It's coming on a hot day!" I laughed at her and told her that there is a strong typhoon. I told her about the strong winds and swaying trees. But she just said "No, the sun is coming."
Bella is our sun in the storm because no matter how scary things become, she will make things look a lot better. She is our source of strength and because of her we are more determined to get through this super typhoon.
So, I guess we have to stay calm and entrust everything to Jehovah God. No typhoon is stronger than our God so we need not fear. He will keep us safe and yes, we will look forward for the sun to come.
