We're O.K.

How blessed we are to have people across the world mindful of us! Recently, Sam and I've received several emails and phone calls inquiring about our safety. We're most grateful to report that we've not suffered in anyway from the recent cyclone in Burma or the earthquake in China.

Well, that's not exactly true. We, like you, have very heavy hearts as we watch the daily news and hear reports of human suffering due to the cyclones, earthquakes, floods, fires, droughts, cancer, war... Today, I should be dancing for joy since tomorrow I'm leaving for a visit with our family and friends. Believe me, I'm happy...just feeling helpless, sad and maybe also a bit guilty. I have soooo..... much, while others have lost everything.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:6-7

....precious comforting words I'm striving to live.

When next we get together, I want to hire you as a "blog" consultant to help us with ours. Your pictures and comments make S-O-O much more sense. I finally got around reading through all yours. Thanks, your communication skills give me inspiration and hope.
