My heart has been with Japan since the quake. I am glad to have heard from my friend who lives there and know that she and her family are safe.

And sometimes, we do forget how short life is.

And how blessed we really are.

Without a doubt we are praying for everyone in Japan. What a tragedy.

Shey said...

We will definitely be praying for them and I'm sure many people are keeping Japan in their prayers, because I don't have a T.V. and I rarely look at the news on the internet sometimes I don't know what's going on until someone mentions it at work, today I went to visit my sister and I saw the terrible earthquake and tsunami, my heart went out to those people. =/

Absolutely. It is so devastating to see the images, the videos. Mindboggling.

Ahh, Becky. I can't wrap my mind around it. I think of how long it took us to clean up the Twin Towers. And New Orleans. And yet in Japan, FOUR trains are just MISSING.. one of them with 400 people on it. I can't comprehend. Some of the photos remind me of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. And now with talk of nuclear reactor meltdown, it just seems even more awful. I am praying... I think of the little children there, and it makes me cray. (((hugs)))...

When I first heard about the calamity, I thought of a friend of mine from H.S. who is over there. I'm glad to know that he's okay and giving updates on what has been happening to those of us here.

Beautiful Pictures! And, yes, we will be praying with you. My husband just returned from China; I cannot explain my relief. I just read about 30 school children whose parents have not arrived to pick them up. I just want to pick them up and bring them home. Praying with you!!!
