“Someone is praying for the things you take for granted.”
I thought this quote was especially appropriate today as we talked about the devastation and tragedy and pray for the people in the Philippines.
The things that we have right this very second, someone out there is desperate for: food, water, shelter, clothing, safety. Do we think of how blessed we are? When we complain about the internet not being fast enough, the fact that the car is cold when we first get into it (now that it is winter), or how we ran out of milk and can’t have cereal in the morning?
The other thing that impressed me with this quote, is that sometimes the only thing you can do, when surrounded by tragedy and are in a desperate state, is pray.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the millions of families who are praying for a miracle.
