Donating For a Good Cause

After starting my day with a good workout with my aerobics class, having a great lunch with my work family, and a good day at my job, I came home to a nice meal and sat down to watch the news.  Every time I see the films from Japan my heart breaks anew.  I feel so utterly helpless!  I would love to just go over there and help in some way.  But, the thought of going anywhere near the radiation scares me to death! 

So, I ask myself, what can I do?  Jerry and I have decided we can at least give some money through the Ky Baptist Disaster Relief Fund.  I know that all the money will then go directly to aid for Japan.  We need to be careful just where we channel our money.  As a matter of fact, just as I got on my computer I got a message from McAfee Security warning of the many scams right now for donating to this cause!  Scumbags!  I hope they will be caught and prosecuted severely! 

It's been another beautiful day and I thank God that I can enjoy it!  I thank Him that I am safe and secure right now while "all hell" is breaking loose around the world!  Tonight before we go to sleep we need to pray for our brothers and sisters in Japan, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya as well as those suffering in other places.  I also pray that in the midst of their horror they will feel the mighty hand of God upon them giving them strength and courage.

Would you join me in donating to this cause and praying fervently for the Japanese people?

Matthew 9: 36
When he (Jesus) saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.

Colossians 3:12
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
