Yesterday morning I had heard about the earthquake in Japan, but had not learned the extent until later in the afternoon. My sister lives in Brookings and I called her to ask about the extent of the damage there. She said the tsunami had destroyed the docks there and a number of boats were lost. There were a number of business in that area, but she did not know how much damage they had received.
I have been looking at the pictures and just cannot imagine what the people there are experiencing. But, I know that God is watching over them. Now, all I can do is pray for them.

Am reading "In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day" by Matt Batterson and found this:
"God is great not just because nothing is too big for Him. God is great because nothing is too small for Him either."

At the beginning of the year our Pastor told us we should slow down and learn to just say "No!". In December he had cellulitis in his leg - spent 4 days in the hospital - and was off most of the month. So he learned how important it is to just rest at times.
However, it seems like my life has gotten busier. Well, actually the things I am doing are adding so much to my life!! Monday evenings I am working on #3 of my goals for the year. (Restoring lost relationships). Am meeting my oldest son who had withdrawn from the family - again. This week we met with his Dad to celebrate my son's 49th birthday. (And I thought I was only 49!!) Oh, well. We had such a good time - just reminiscing and sharing stories.
Am walking a little more - slowly adding steps so my weekly average is going up. And, have lost another pound - even tho I have not been tracking my food intake. Actually, just do not have much of an appetite - except when I have gone out for dinner.
Have been spending more time with Jill, my 10 year old granddaughter. Will soon start our Bible study.
Have finished knitting a scarf for my Pastor's wife and have started another for me. Also, am hand-piecing a quilt for my oldest granddaughter who is getting married in March. The quilt however will not be finished before at least Christmas. (They had originally planned to get married in Sept.)
Am still sorting and tossing in my bedroom. Have discarded some books and taken a couple of boxes to the Salvation Army. Feels so good to have my closet cleaned out.
So, I feel like I am right on track. Just want to focus now on losing a couple more pounds this month. Better get with it!!!
