Trail of Tears
Copious, overflowing tears have been falling from the sky, submerging many parts of the country, including Metro Manila. There has been no let-up since last night. The weather bureau calls it monsoon rains after Typhoon Mario battered our shores.
People, me included, are rained in; reined in, rather. Today's activities at the Manila International Book Fair (Sept. 17-21) have been cancelled, including the formal launching of Grace@Work.
No matter. Any day, dry or wet, is a great time to honor and praise the Source of overflowing grace.
"Today would have been dad’s 102nd birthday," my sister emailed, "had not the Lord taken him 32 years ago."
In celebration of everything that today is, let me change my header:
From dry leaves to wet leaves . . .
