It’s raining outside. A tropical depression creeped up on our country from below, positioned itself over the middle south of the archipelago, and promptly stopped moving. Now it is indiscreetly flooding out villages and people on the islands of Visayas and Mindanao, and dumping rain on Manila. And stupid me, while the first drops hadn’t yet fallen this morning, I forgot to wear a raincoat. Fortunately my spare umbrella was in my bag.
I had an inspiring flash of enlightenment about the New Testament verse in Hebrews on the danger of falling away, and how it relates to our eternal security and the unfailing love of God. I’ll post my discoveries here sometime.
