We woke up to this scene today. Yes, it was very beautiful and I thought I would snap some pics. They didn't turn out great, but they do show the thick, sort of wet snow that hit us again. Our yard is very saturated. If you see spots were there is no snow, that's because it's water. When this melts it will just add more fuel to the flooding. Griping about the weather has become a daily event in my life... Then I saw the tsunami in Japan. I'm sure my mouth was open in shock watching the cars, homes, roads, and most importantly, people being washed away. The destruction, horror, sadness and loss of so many families is very hard to comprehend. Our Church has many Missionaries in Japan. Young men and women and older couples who give 2yrs service without compensation to serve the Lord. I pray for them and their families along with the people of Japan. I pray for our west coast, but am grateful that minimal damage was done and hopefully it will stay that way. Paradigm shifts..perspective if you will. My little inconveniences this past winter are nothing in the whole scheme of things. I am blessed.
