It's really hard to say thank you when you are facing a tragedy just like the typhoon Sendong which killed a lot of Filipinos in Iligan. I know a lot of people there are still mourning for their loved ones that passed-away and what's worst - they'll be spending Christmas without them.
I know this may not be the merriest Christmas of all to everyone but I still pray for everyone to feel the spirit of Christmas. Another test of unity for our countrymen. I believe we can all overcome this with each and everyone's help.
May God bless each of us this coming Christmas. And to all who lost their loved ones, I pray for their strength and blessings from God.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. - Isaiah 9: 6
God bless you all and may we all have peace in our hearts. Merry Christmas to all.
