A Christmas Tragedy

Hi everyone. I am typing this blog post in an internet shop at a nearby mall. I will be gone for a while. I have nothing to post anyway. Our house was gutted by fire yesterday, Christmas day. I have only saved my camera. My parents saved a few things - 2 tv, our diplomas and pictures. That's about it. It is just so sad that this tragedy happened to us especially on Christmas day. I am lost and confused on what to do but I know God has a better plan for our lives. Last Christmas 2011, we spent our Christmas in the hospital because my lolo was in the ICU and 2 days after he died. Now, we spent our Christmas on the streets, helplessly trying to console ourselves on the things we lost.  I am still trying to pinch myself every now and then to see if this is all a bad dream. However, this is a sad truth our family must face. The sorrow I felt when I lost my grandfather last year is inexplicable compared to what happened to us now. The sadness that I am feeling now is only momentary.Despite this, I still feel blessed because we are all alive.  Praise God for another life. Praise God for people who are helping us start anew and for all the concerns. Also, I am writing this post to apologize to the companies who have sent me products for review. I am very sorry I cannot do reviews on the products you sent. I apologize that I can not email each one of you. 
 
I am looking forward to 2013. With God's grace, we will overcome this problem. My God is a faithful and living GOD. Thank you Lord for a new life.

Godbless.
Til my next post, and hopefully it will be a positive one.

 Rejoice always,  pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (New International Version)

  11. Hi Donnarence,

    The most important thing is you and your family are safe. You'll be able to replace the things you lost soon enough, or you won't even notice that they're gone. Hugs dear!

  12. I understand because I experienced the same back in 2001. We lost our house and all our belongings to a big fire on January 1, 2001 and now that the anniversary's near I can't help but feel apprehensive as I was really traumatized by what happened. But through God's will and help from our relatives and friends we were able to start anew. I'm really sorry that this happened Donnarence, but I'm sure you'll go through this stronger. If you need any help don't hesitate to ask. You and your family are in my prayers.

  38. Good thing, you and your family is safe. I know the feeling, our family had experienced the same tragedy when our house has burned years ago (April, 1998). We start little by little and now we're okey. Sometimes we have to go through some lesson like this, to be able to help us in the future, to be strong and be prepare to more or big challenges. I know you can pass this test. ^_^

  39. Donna,so sad to hear about this. But God has plans for us. Have faith, things will be okay. It does sound trite, but when we have faith in Him, He will turn around things for good.

    The most important thing is that you and your family are still alive. Will pray for you too!

    Millions of virtual hugs for you! xx
