Poignant Timing

This card was received the day after the horrendous earthquake and tsunami in March. Thankfully, we were able to email the sender and learned that she was okay. Still, it was and is a reminder that those events affected real lives and not just anonymous faces as seen on the news. We are praying for them still.
