Oh My God, Japan...

Ever since the BE4 and a tremendous presentation by Carol Howard Merritt, I've tried to be more intentional about writing on my blog.

I know, you can't tell.

I have been plugging away daily at 750words, but every few paragraphs of drivel I find myself wanting to scream, "Oh my God, Japan!" This is no tongue-in-cheek statement, this is a cry out to God for mercy on them and ultimately on all of creation.

I cannot even begin to fathom life there right now. I cannot look at the pictures of dazed and stunned survivors. I cannot comprehend it. I don't think any one can.

So I've been going about my days with petty this and semi-important that and suddenly it will hit me again, "Oh my God, Japan!"

I guess this is all we can do - pray, cry out in lament, seek other ways to offer tangible support.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayers....

I know, that's what I've been thinking.

I haven't been on 750 words for a long time. not proud of that.

but, I can't stop thinking about Japan.
