The earthquake in Haiti and continual strong aftershocks have devastated this small country. As usual, the children seem to suffer the most. Over the years many countries have worked hard to help the poorest country in the western hemisphere. Corrupt governments, hurricanes, and the like have continued to fight against improvements for the resilient Haitians. And now this. The people need safe shelter, water and food, and immediate medical care. It is confusing as to why it is taking so long for this to happen. Our prayers are needed.
Today I am giving thanks for our God being a God that moves mountains and make miracles happen. I am giving thanks for God loving us and hearing the cries of the suffering. I am giving thanks for all those who are reaching out to help the people of Haiti in so many different ways. And as I look around at the abundance of conveniences that make my life so easy, I am giving thanks for a safe home, more than enough food and water, and opportunities others in our world do not have. I am humbled. I am blessed.
