I was going to write some fluff today ... or tell jokes for Friday Fun... but then I saw the news: an 8.9 earthquake hit Japan, causing a tsunami there and that threatens Pacific nations and Hawaii, and even California.
I'm kind of speechless.
There's been so much awfulness in the world ... and then this.
What with evil abounding ... and then natural disasters happening it's not surprising that folks get angry at God. Or question or deny His existence. Certainly it does seem strange that there are those of us who believe in a loving God.
But I do.
And I know he didn't just promise us a rose garden.
Life is fragile, so fragile.
So now we need to do what we can to help the victims of the world.
And do as dear April Alvarado just posted on Facebook, 'Praying for Japan'.
April, by the way, is on a mission, in the true sense of the word. She's doing a World Race - 11 countries in 11 months. Well, to find out more about it click HERE
Here's her Facebook profile pic....
(I put a new random poll up.)
Port Isabel won in my last poll....for 'what name of these Texas towns do you like the most'? It beat out Alice, Melissa, and Donna. (I voted for Isabel.)
Baskin Robbins won in the taste-tester poll - over Nabisco, Pizza Hut, Starbucks and Oscar Mayer. (I voted for the ice cream.)
'Campfire' won in my poll on what word makes you smile the most. The others were 'relax', 'play' and 'buffet'. I voted for 'relax'... but I almost changed it to 'buffet'.
I don't think I'm going to comment on each poll from now on, okay? I'll just put the poll up - and let it speak for itself. Sometimes the polls surprise me - like I wouldn't have thought 'campfire' would win.)
So I did put some fluff on here.
Oh, and I can never be 'speechless'.
I better quit.
I am thinking of my hometown now. Mission, Texas. And McAllen, Texas. And Mercedes, Texas, where I was born. And Donna, Texas, so near there...
Bear Valley Community Church held its fall festival last Sunday. It was FUN! Here are a few pictures (I put even more on facebook the othe...
Maybe I have too much time on my hands. (NO!!!!! ---- I used to have NO time on my hands -- so don't take time away from me now!!!) ...
If you live in Kentucky you tell folks which county you're from, not which town, well, unless, I guess you're from Louisville or Lex...
