The World is Black. The World is White.
I awoke feeling a bit wonky, so after meds and a blood test I sat down in my craft room and began creating. I used mostly black and white papers from my splurge yesterday. It looks very busy in the photo but it really did turn out beautifully. Working on a card often gets me over the initial shock of being awake. My tummy starts to settle as I focus on external things. As soon as I finish typing this I should be able to manage brunch.
I feel so grateful to be safe and sound and as healthy as I am (with this disease) God has blessed me so much and I sometimes lose sight of it. Hearing the news out of Japan yesterday is sobering indeed and I once again am reminded that for all my complaints there are others suffering far greater losses right now. Despite our different appearances and cultures, the people of Japan are everyday people just like me. My heart and prayers go out to them. It is hard to figure out where God is in the midst of such devastation, but I must believe He has his hand on the situation and will work His plan out through this.
