Devastation in Northern Japan
Maple leaves open like an origami crane.
In my garden there are two Japanese maple trees. Every time I look upon them I think of the two wonderful visits to that land. Today I pray for the people of that beautiful land... as they struggle through this time of unthinkable devastation.
Last night I learned that a couple we know who lie near Narita is safe. They didn't even lose their power. Still, the news images of swaying buildings and destructive waves tells me that many lives have been devastated. Pray for the people of Japan.
