    I'm just glad we're not seeing the numbers like we did with the Tsunami in 2004...

    Terrible. Thankful the tsunami died down before reaching us here, but it's awful all the damage it did along the way. :(

    The good people of Japan have been in my prayers since I first heard about the quake over 18 hours ago. Father, surround these people with your tender kindness and mercies. Amen.

    It really does. When I turned on the tv this morning I thought 2012 had broken out overnight.

    Yep praying. Most of my friends are accounted for, except three. One of my friends in California hasn't heard word from her mom in Sendai, the neighborhood was demolished. Its so surreal, I lived 3hrs by train south of where it happened.

    Only 8/69 of them :p

    And according to a some well informed individuals, 'global warming' is causing the earthquakes. I hear way too many people say that...

    Tectonic Physics causes Earthquakes, plates under pressure do extreme things when pulled apart, forced together or slipstreamed and we suffer the consequences.

    Meanwhile, prayers to the gods forr the people of Japan!

    What do you believe then? Do you believe God is not in control?

    I would not condemn the Japanese people, but to say that the earthquake occured, IN SPITE OF GOD'S WILL TO THE CONTRARY, is blasphemy in my view.

    Relevant scripture:

    Luke 13:4-5
    4 Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them—do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? 5 I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish.”

    Good news, my friends mom is ok from Sendai. She is busy helping others. One friend left yet to hear from, NOriko. Praying she is ok. Otherwise surrounding areas around Tokyo are rationing electricity and lines are long for food. Praying.
