WEATHER IN NORTH AMERICA

I wanted to complain about the bad weather here. Then suddenly, I thought about Japan and the hardships of the people there which made me stop about my own.

IRONY IN HUMAN BEHAVIOUR

On one side of the world people are trying to find people so that they can save them, on the other side they are trying to find people so that they can kill them.

PRAYER FOR THE PEOPLE OF JAPAN


THIS WONDERFUL PRAYER

WAS PASSED ON TO ME.

SO I AM PASSING IT ON.


Lord, I just want to say THANK YOU,

Because this morning I woke up

and knew where my children were.


Because this morning my home was still standing,

Because this morning I am not crying

Because my spouse, my child, my brother or sister,

my parent does not need to be buried

or to be pulled out from underneath a pile of concrete,

Because this morning I was able to drink a glass of water,

Because this morning I was able to turn on the light,

Because this morning I was able to take a shower,

Because this morning I was not planning a funeral.


But most of all I thank you this morning because

I still have life and a voice to cry out for the people of Japan.

Lord I cry out to you, the One that makes the impossible, possible,

The One that turns darkness in to light,

I cry out that You give those mothers strength.


That You give them peace that surpasses all understanding,

That You may open the streets so that help can come,

That You may provide doctors, nurses, food, water,

and all that they need in a blink of an eye.


For all those that have lost family members, give them peace,

give them hope, give them courage to continue to go on!

Protect the children and shield them with your power.

I pray all this in the name of Jesus!!!


To all friends, please continue to forward this

so that we can pray together for the people in Japan.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

ST. PATRICK
Apostle of Ireland,
born at Kilpatrick, near Dumbarton, in Scotland,
in the year 387;
died at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland,
17 March, 493.

The green color and the shamrock represents and symbolizes Irish Christianity. It is the national colour of Ireland and everything goes green on St. Patrick's Day. St. Patrick is believed to have used the shamrock in teaching the Irish about the Holy Trinity.


Green is life, signifying growth, health, and environment.

Green is restful with cooling and calming attributes,

and good for the eyes.

Green is the national color of Ireland.

Green also heralds the onset of Spring.

FORCES OF IRONY

FORCES OF IRONY

On one side of the world it is man fighting against man, on the other it is the powerful force of nature against man.

Admirable courage in the aftermath

The magnitude of the disaster in the aftermath of the earthquake, tsunami and aftershocks, is unbelievable as we watch the images on TV and the internet. The human suffering this has caused is beyond my comprehension. I admire the courage of the Japanese people who survived in the face of adversity. I remember when as a young boy clutching my mother's hand, as I stood under the doorway of our little house, during a very violent storm that seems like nothing in comparison, as I watch the images of destruction in Japan, unfold before my eyes.

It is sad to watch the images of devastation in Japan

It has been really distressing and sad to watch the images on TV, as nature unleashed its fury with the tidal wave caused by the earthquake in Japan. The magnitude of human suffering and displacement is unfathomable.

Vast areas of land inundated with debris, causing damage to natural resources. The tsunami has washed away everything in his path.

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the ones who have lost their lives in this natural catastrophe, to the ones who has lost their near and dear ones and to those who have been separated from their relatives and friends..

Earthquake in Japan and the resulting tsunami

My daughter Denise phoned us here in Toronto from San Francisco, USA, re: the devastating earthquake and the resulting tsunami in Japan, at 2.30 am. The images we are watching on TV since then are really heart-rending. We believe the tsunami will probably have an effect on the entire West Coast of Canada and USA.
Naturally we are concerned about all our near and dear ones, relatives and friends, and generally everyonee. Please take care and stay safe.
