To Japan with Love

Hello everyone,
     As we continue to watch the news of Japan with shock and dismay our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all the people of Japan.



We are shocked and saddened.


We pray for all those who have lost loved ones. We pray also for those who are in other countries but have loved ones in Japan.

But we have hope that with all of us helping out in whatever way we can they can rebuild .


I am joining other bloggers from around the world in a bloggers day of silence Friday March 18 th.


   With love,

        Carolyn

What a wonderful post and I'd like to thank you for this... My son-in-law is USCG stationed in Guam and he is sending my daughter and their three little boys out of the country this week.. he told me tonight all Military personal ordered out of Japan tomorrow! This is a very bad sign.. I don't know what they expect but it can not be good??
Bless all who have been touched by this.....

Beautiful Carolyn.
This must have had a big impact on you since having these lovely people tour your gardens last summer. You probably felt some sort of kinship sharing your home with them.
My heart also breaks for their pets.

This is a lovely tribute. It's hard to imagine how the destruction will be overcome. There are so many displaced people. I hope that they will soon find places to make these people more comfortable, warm and safe.

Carol said...

Thank you for this thoughtful, heart-felt post Carolyn. Japans reality right now is so heartbreaking. I pray it does not worsen and that control of the dangerous Nuclear Power plants can be obtained very soon. The people and land of Japan are exceptional it is so frightening to read of how radiation is spreading many miles away from the site. It is just overwhelmingly sad.
