Getting the news about the massive earthquake
and tsunami in Japan this afternoon was so shocking and stunning
There are tsunami warnings all across the globe.
In 1991 I experienced an earthquake in
the Himalayas and although it
was of a lower magnitude than today's
I just cannot forget it.
It took me a long time to recover from it
My deepest sympathies are for the people of Japan
and everyone who is under this untimely threat.
May they experience God 's protection and comfort.
They say hundreds have lost their lives -
apart from loss of property.
My dear mother had a strange dream early this morning.
It was hours before the disaster struck Japan.
While watching the news she recalled her dream.
It was early morning and there was an earthquake
in our city. My mother shook me awake
and asked me to gather all the important documents
and make an exit from the house.
She also asked me to take a blanket for her
as she would feel cold in the outdoors.
Mama said the dream was very real.
Maybe it was a supernatural warning.
God speaks to us through dreams.
The Bible says
The name of the Lord is like a
the righteous run to it
and are safe.
We are living in perilous times
as if on the edge of a precipice.
Our lives and times are in the
hands of the Lord God.
