the last few days i can’t help but be reminded…
as i know you are too… 
that in it all…
sadness… loss… devastation… recovery… kindness… love.
big… small…
we are all in this together.

not that by any means i can even fathom what those affected are going through…
but how the faces of those in Haiti represent all of us.
as human beings… as beautiful children of God.

i have had such a hard time wrapping my brain around such a tragedy.
the fact that it could happen anywhere… touch anybody.

this morning at the kitchen table with my eldest…
(news on in the background)…
i find it hard to hold back the tears again.
wanting my girls to understand the magnitude of what has happened…
the importance of reaching out…
the importance of each & every prayer…
each & every helping hand.

truth be told though…
i was finding it hard to on one hand… bring her a feeling of safety…
and on the other… explaining how terrible things CAN happen.
you know what i mean?
that we don’t now why things like this happen… and it IS very sad.

whenever something like this occurs…
there is always an overwhelming feeling…
a feeling of the fact that we are all really the same.

in it together.
to reach out
lift up

FOR one another.
to be there FOR each other.

i know by now you have heard of texting your donation to the Red Cross.
by simply texting “HAITI” to 90999.
it donates 10.
it counts!
it adds up.
it is a helping hand!
it is reaching out.

we ARE in it together…
TOGETHER we can be strong.

now let’s pray TOGETHER for those that need it NOW.

"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for,
it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.
For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.”
Matthew 18:19-20
