Hold on to hope, and take courage again ♥

I really need to sleep, but I've been watching the news for the past few hours. I can't peel my eyes away from it. I'm sure most of you have heard about the devastating earthquake/tsunami that has happened in Japan. Like a domino effect, it's moving quickly into other parts of the world. Watching the news.. one thought comes to mind. Prayer. (Other than financial aid) All I can do is pray. I know it might not seem much to others, but I believe in the power of prayer. Prayer can overcome. My heart really goes out to everyone who is affected by this unfortunate tragedy. It truly breaks my heart to see how lives are changed in a mere instant, how a beautiful city is being wiped out by waves in seconds. It's so unreal. Most of us see it on our TV screens, hear it on the radio.. but can you imagine the impact and experiencing it first hand? I can only imagine the fear and tragedy these people are going through.

With that being said.. unfortunately, it's only times like these when some people realize how precious life is. Don't let a tragedy determine how you'd live your life. Start now. Tell the people you love most, how much you love them. Do the things you've always dreamt of. Never regret. Take heart. You've only got this time on earth. Life is far too short.

Please continue to send your love, prayers and thoughts to Japan and the rest of the world. There is power in prayer. There is also power in numbers. Stay strong, Japan. The rest of the world is with you.

I love this post... there truly IS power in prayer. I was just looking at pictures today that captured the state of Japan... it felt so real that it was almost as if I was experiencing what they were experiencing... I was the girl who found out her mother had been saved and was waiting for me in a shelter. It was truly humbling.
