I can't stop thinking about Japan. 
The unimaginable terror and horror that they are experiencing as a country. 
Yesterday as I watched and listened to what was happening, I kept wondering, why? 
Why does this happen? Why does God allow these things to occur? 
I am praying for these people. This country. I pray that they will drop to their knees and look to the Creator
I guess sometimes we have to be brought to our knees. 
I know I do. 
God can heal the horror and devastation.
I know he has done it in my life. 
I know that He is bigger then all of this. 
He can heal their nation. 
HE can bring them to HIM. 
From this unthinkable ugliness,  something beautiful  will come. 
People will be saved and come to know the Lord as their Savior.

That little snake in the garden messed up paradise. He came to steal, kill and destroy - and that destruction today is who started it in Japan. It's like I tell my son, "I'm not like God. I don't wait for permission to act in your life." God isn't a pushy mom. God works when He is invited. I bet my boys would like me to be more God-like - and I bet I would have better results more often.

And what you said is sooooo true - God will make something beautiful out of this awful, horrifying tragedy! Thank goodness that sneaky snake doesn't have the winning card!

My husband's in China right now. They had an earthquake earlier in the week. I'm concerned about Japan's nuclear reactors and how they will affect his return. I'm inviting God to protect him, to bring him home safely Monday:)

Your picture is so beautiful!

Exactly. Couldnt have said it better myself. Everything happens for a purpose whether good or bad. God is in control!! our thoughts and prayers go out to them for sure.
