Beacons of Hope
I wanted to post something entirely different today but I could not bring myself to do it because it seems so trivial in comparison to the devastation in Haiti. I have been home all week with the flu and couldn't do much but watch TV and each time I watched the news it just got worse and worse. The horror of it all. My heart is aching so. I wish I could just reach out and make it all go away for these poor souls. There seems to be some rays of hope though. Help is finally getting to these people.
All we can do right now is just pray for them and pray that they can heal from this. And please pray for the rescuers and volunteers because they are going to have to see and do things that no human being should ever have to go through. I don't think we realize that the rescuers and volunteers are traumatized and deeply affected by this too.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.
