Thoughts on Japan

Man...I don't think I can even put into words what I am feeling about the people in Japan.   It's breaking my heart.  It has been breaking my heart for the last 3 days.  I cant even watch the news very long, anymore. 

I think because it is too scary.  I am over here, a world away from them and my biggest worry is about sheetrock, electrical and cabinets and I let it get me down...some.  Those folks have to figure out how to live from minute to minute.  They have to endure the pain of loss of loved ones.  I can't even begin to imagine how a person draws the strength to carry on.  But, somehow, they do.   Each day that passes I thank God for that mercy and I pray that our prayers somehow touch their spirits and lets them know that they are loved and that they can endure.  I believe they do.

I read on Bower Power today that "...in Japan, they believe that the Cherry Blossom is an omen of good fortune and an emblem of love, affection and the coming of spring."  Don't those words just bring you a little glimmer of hope?  That's all they need...just a glimmer.  Please keep praying for them.  Even when we feel there is nothing else we can do, we can pray.

May God's blessings pour upon you and your loved ones today and always.  Peace be with you, my blog friends! <3
