I'm sitting here this morning watching the news coverage of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan – simply speechless at the thought of the devastation and destruction that has occurred there… and just after seeing similar images not that long ago in Christchurch with the earthquake that happened there.
I am just overwhelmed with sadness for the people and my heart goes out to all the mothers who are wondering if their babies (young or old) are OK – all the fathers doing the same – and all of those people elsewhere in the world preparing for the aftershocks that will be coming.
All I can do at this point is say a prayer – and remember that everything happens for a reason, even if we don't know (or never know) the reason.
One thought on “There are no words”
It is mind-numbing, isn’t it? My first reaction was, “Oh, those poor people”. I didn’t know what else to say or think. It’s such a huge thing and I can’t really get my brain round it… I can’t comprehend it. I feel very lucky that we are here, all okay and untroubled (for now at least) by the local weather and natural events. I complained when someone told me it might snow again this week – now I feel humbled.
I pray for the victims of these huge disasters. May they find the strength they need to cope with whatever comes. I so hope that help and relief reaches as many as possible very quickly.
