There is nothing special going on today. But there have been some things going on that I have taken notice of.
1) We found out how much it is going to cost to pay for my son's braces. Whew! Well, there went the plans to go see our oldest Daughter in Virginia Beach. Maybe we can go somewhere a bit closer. We'll have to see.
2) Did you hear about the Japanese Student going to the University of California-Riverside, CA? Her family and town was in the middle of the tsunami in Japan. For three days she cried, not knowing if anyone of her family survived. But then on Sunday night, she received an email from someone saying that her family had survived. They had been seen on a media broadcast. She searched and searched and finally someone sent her a link. The broadcast showed that the devastation in her city was immense, so immense, that her family home was the only thing standing. All around them was rubble. It showed her sister, standing on a balcony outside her bedroom with a sign that read something like "We all survived." We being herself, her parents, her paternal grandparents, and a younger sister. The student in America is now trying to use the media to get word back to her family that she saw them. What an amazing story. I love the stories like this that come from all the horrible, terrible things we are seeing and hearing coming from Japan. I pray for that nation.
3) Today is 3/16/11. A Christian radio station had dubbed today John 3:16 day. It is from the Bible and reads, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him will not perish, but have eternal life." Those are words I share with each of you today.
Hope your day is wonderful!
