A sad day....

Oh what a sad day today is.....the news of the huge earthquake and tsunami in Japan has left me in shock.  It is easy to go through life thinking things will remain status quo, but I do believe that God uses these tragedies to bring us closer to Him.  I feel badly for complaining about our continued snow...when I am healthy, safe and warm in my home.  I was blog hopping a bit this morning and ran across this poem that Rebecca of  A Gathering Place shared.  It was written by her brother, and deserves to be posted on every 'fridge...lest we forget to live each day to the fullest.
I will pray for the people of Japan and for each of you, my blogging friends...we never know what life will throw at us, but we should try to live each day as if it were our last, so that when our time comes...He will greet us and say "well done good and faithful servant".  God bless and have a lovely weekend.

  1. Amen Wendy....I'm so sad for all those poor souls. A prim friend Brandi and her little guy and husband are okay over there.
