Pray for Japan

I look at this and feel so helpless...my heart is yearning. Please Help.

So, I woke up on Friday with texts from my friends asking if my family (in Japan) were ok. I was like "WTF is going on in Japan?". I turned on the tv and saw utter devastation. The first thing I thought about was my family. I called my mother and asked if she got a hold of them...answer: no. She told me she kept calling, but always got the busy signal. I decided to email them thinking maybe the internet is up and running? For the whole day I couldn't concentrate on work, my mind was in Japan. They emailed back Friday evening saying that they're ok, but still experiencing a lot of aftershocks. I heard on the news that they have been experiencing over 250+ aftershocks?! I have been reading comments from people stating that this earthquake and tsunami are just payback for things that happened years ago - really? I can't believe people actually feel this way..I can go ON and ON about this topic but I wont.

I don't know if you bloggers out there still read my blog, but if you do, please help...even if it's just a prayer for the people in Asia. Thank you

  1. I'm giving to either Japan Red Cross or Direct Relief. 15% of HQCD this month will go there-- I know it's a little, but it'll still help. And it's the only way I know how to make a difference ><

    <3. Hang in there.

  2. Glad to know your family's safe. I also can't believe people would say such things (I read it in the paper today and was just in shock). How can someone say such cruel words when something so devastating is happening, I don't understand.

  3. Sincerest sympathies for those in Japan. I'm glad to hear your family's safe. Must love ~

  4. glad to hear ur fam is safe. praying for JP

  5. A relief to know your family is ok! those who are injured, ill, homeless, shocked etc...need our prayers and we must not fail them!and donate to those who help out there!
    And DON'T think of the cruel and base words of stupid people who are a nasty minority, thank God
