Days like today just make your heart hurt so much.

I turned on the morning news bright and early this morning only to see that on the other side of the world it actually looked like the world might be coming to an end. 

I wish I had something profound and comforting to write here today, but honestly, my heart is just breaking for these families and all of their loved ones.  I still can't wrap my head around most of the footage I's just so painful to imagine.

Tonight, I will be praying with my children for all of the Japanese people as they begin to process what has happened to them today.  I hope that you will be praying along with me tonight. 

We may not understand why this happened, but I have to believe that He knows, and He will bring something beautiful out of the ashes.

His mercies are new every morning.  I will be thanking Him for that tomorrow.

  1. I was a little late in realizing what was going on, as I've spent most of yesterday and today sleeping off a cold. Of all the recent crises in the world, this one really hits home for me. A friend of mine from high school (foreign exchange student) lives in Tokyo. I'm still waiting to hear that she and her family are safe. Her name is Rika. In case you'd like to pray for someone by name...
