How are you coping up with this pandemic?

How are you? Its been awhile since I last posted on this blog. So how are you coping up with this pandemic. So sad that we are suffering from this pandemic for a long time. Month of March when Pres. Duterte announced that Luzon will be under Enhanced Community Quarantine. For 2 months, I was just staying inside the house because going out is prohibited. Thankful because I have my sister who is residing near me and she was the one who bought our basic essentials that time.

After two months, I went back to my work but not all are allowed to go out. I think at this time, children below 15 year-old and senior citizen who’s age 65 and beyond are still not allowed to go out. So, as I am writing this post it is already month of November few days away and it is Christmas still this pandemic is not yet resolved here in my country and other countries.

In my place we have large number of positive cases. Even some of my workmates suffered from this virus. I work Mondays-Fridays so I have this feeling of scared everything I go out. I just pray to God that every time I go out He will protect me from this virus. I have my daughter with me and I’m thinking of her every time I go out.

We don’t see this virus so we should be taking care of ourselves. Just remember every time you go out there are chances to get this virus but there are also big big chances not to get this. How? By protecting yourself like wearing face mask, face shield, bring alcohol, wash hands if there are chances to do so and social distancing. Live a healthy life by eating healthy foods, taking vitamin C and sleep early (guilty on this one as much as I wanted to sleep early but I can’t) Anyway, I believe following all these will help not to get and spread this virus.

Well, I hope this pandemic will be over soon and everything will go back to normal. I have so many realization from this pandemic, one of this is to trust God with all your heart. God provides our strength everyday just keep believing on Him, soon this dilemma will be over.

Mary Jane Veloso Receives Temporary Reprieve

It’s nice to wake up hearing the good news that Mary Jane Veloso was spared from execution.  God is good! Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers indeed answered prayers. I don’t know Mary Jane personally but when I heard this execution I included her in my prayers for the past days. And last night my only prayers were for her to be spared in this execution and it happened.

We Filipinos are grateful, thank you to the president of Indonesia for giving Mary Jane another chance to prove her innocence, thank you President Pnoy and the whole government for helping Mary Jane. Above all I think the prayers of all the Filipinos made this thing possible.

The battle is not yet over and Mary Jane still needs to prove her innocence on drug trafficking. But giving her temporary reprieve is a good sign that there is a chance for her to live a normal life again. In time, I know she will go back in the Philippines where she belongs and live freely with her family. I believe she was a victim of human trafficking so let us continue our prayers for Mary Jane Veloso, she deserves our prayers.

Veloso was born to a poor family in Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. She is the youngest of five siblings. She and her husband married when she was 17 but separated later. They have two sons, aged 12 and 6.

Mary Jane Veloso was arrested and sentenced to death in Indonesia in April 2010 for allegedly smuggling 2.6 kilograms of heroin in a suitcase.
