Let me end this post by saying that my heart is heavy for anyone affected by the tsunami in Japan. The sheer despair and loss of this tragedy is unfathomable. If able, please consider any amount of donation to World Vision Tsunami Relief. World vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and communities world wide. Most important though are your prayers for comfort and reprieve in this deplorable time.
May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding guard their hearts; And may his right hand sustain them. (Philippians 4:7-Psalm 18:35)
