I survived because God is with me all this time by wednesday, Sat, 12/31/2011 - 06:26
“Sometimes, you have to fall from the mountain to realize, what you are climbing for.
Obstacles are placed in our way to see if what we want is really worth fighting for.
From every wound there’s a scar, and every scar tells a story. A story that says:
I was deeply wounded, but I survived because God is with me all this time.
Coz in life, all things will leave you; but God will always be there for you.
All the blessings that we have, despite the calamity that we are facing now. Life must go on.
God always has something for us.
A way for every problem, a light for every shadow, a relief for every sorrow.
May we feel the real essence of Christmas and that is Jesus Christ.
I love you. I love you.”
~Ara, young Sendong survivor
