(My thoughts for my countrymen in these days that the Philippines experiences continuous outpouring of rain. I’d like to remind them of this promise. Please see below: )
“From now on, when I form a cloud over the earth and a rainbow appears in the cloud, I’ll remember my covenant between me and you and everything living, that never again will flood waters destroy all life.” (The Message)
God, the Almighty, has said.
R-est if you must during an event in your life that makes you stop, or
A-ct on something you’ve been putting off for long because of routines.
I-n the confines of your room, maybe someone needs your talk during a storm;
N-ever take for granted a moment you are given- to pause, and reflect.
B-e understanding of everything that happens,
O-we yourself the break you deserve, or the courage waiting to be unleashed
W-ise men know, that after any rain, appears a rainbow- and there lies the beauty of it all.
