For Japan With Love

Watching the waters filled with debris creep across the land was quite eerie. My sisters and I urged the cars to drive faster and the people to escape as the tsunami waters crept closer and closer. Seeing the videos had a much bigger impact than the late night tweets that heralded the arrival of Japan's largest earthquake.

And the damage isn't over as people are risking their lives to radiation. I can't even imagine. So here I sit, in my comfy, warm house in Grass Valley, California reading about lives halfway across the world. Wanting to make a difference and yet limited by time and space.

Enter For Japan With Love and CRASH Japan. Two organizations making a difference in my place. As many bloggers enter a day a silence March 18 to "raise awareness and respect and acknowledge the devastation going on in Japan," please consider reaching out to these people in need of help. And pray, that in their helplessness, the Japanese people will recognize their desperate need of salvation and look to Jesus!

For those who have read about my grandpa and wondered, yes I do have distant relatives in Japan and do not know if they have been affected. Please keep their physical safety and spiritual salvation in your prayers!

Hey Lydia, How are you doing? It's always nice to come and visit you : ) I would love if you could come to my blog today. I did an interview with a photographer (like I do every Thursday) and she is super nervous that she isn't as good as the usual interviewees. If you could leave her a nice comment i would be overjoyed!

Also, how is Becky doing? She doesn't blog any more.
