I sat down to write silly, but my heart wasn't in it.

My heart is aching for the people of Haiti. 

This is not something that began with the news of today, though it does.  My heart has ached for Haiti ever since I found out the average Haitian eats 3-4 meals a week. I ate that many meals today.

They now suffer a catastrophe, a huge catastrophe. Already poor, already hungry and now incredible grief.

It is impossible for us to see through God's eyes. He sees all those people, he knows them all down to the number of hairs on their heads, and now more than ever, he holds them up. May he squeeze the people of Haiti even tighter today, helping them come together in rescue efforts, giving them guidance, direction, aid, strength and the knowledge that while we sit and feel helpless to do for them, we do what we can, we will pray.

Yesterday You asked if there are quotes regarding Pebbles and Ripple effects...there are many* Such as: " Remember,there is no such thing as a small act of kindness.Every kind act creates a ripple effect of Love".
Ripples are 'Waves' you know, your Prayer may start a Ripple effect of Prayers and Kindness that rebuilds the Nation of Haiti:)))
