Sending out some prayers...

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven; A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance." ~Ecclesiastes 3:1,2,4

If you're reading this then you're connected to the Internet in some way. If you're connected to the Internet then you've probably already read news reports and stories and seen photos and videos about the earthquake and subsequent tsunami which hit Japan today. If you haven't then click here. Take a moment to breathe now.

I check my twitter feed when I wake up in the morning (my phone has wifi). First came shock, then came a moment of prayer, then a moment of mingled relief/gratitude that nothing like this has happened here, then another moment of prayer that nothing like this will happen here. I'm not sure what would happen if there was an earthquake of that magnitude (8.9! OMG!) in/near Trinidad and Tobago. I don't think we're in any way prepared for such an event.

Am glad to see that Japan is though and that the world stands ready to provide support. Saying some prayers... sending love and light to those that were affected by the earthquake... the tsunami... those on watch for tsunamis (Hawaii got hit - hope the damage isn't bad)... those that will have to clean up, rebuild and be strong.

All my love  and good wishes to you,
Ren


Edited to add:
Something interesting that may or may not be involved with this event - the occurence of a 'Super Moon'... read about it here and here.
