I'm sure many of you already know about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
More than 10 thousand people died and missed.

I would like to ask you for prayers.
It would be great if you make a pray-for-Japan project, but only a few words of prayers are enough to encourage us.

Many of my fellow scrapbookers, who are safe and sound, say that they are so shocked and can't think about scrapbooking.

My family, friends and church have all been praying. And will continue to pray. Sending out (((hugs)) and asking God to send his peace, grace and strength to all. Remembering your emergency personnel and asking for an extra measure of strength and fortitude to continue searches, rescue work and clean up.

Do you have any specific prayer requests? I would be happy to add them to my prayer journal and church's prayer chain.

I prayed in church yesterday until I cried. I'm so sad and heartbroken for everyone in Japan. I prayed especially hard for those brave 50 men who stayed behind in the power plant that the hand of God would bring them a solution. I get choked up just thinking about it. Please know you are in our prayers. I believe the power of prayer is very strong.
