Cradled by God

Shoes, abandoned by wedding guests as they made their way to the beach for photographs.
The joy with which they were abandoned in stark contrast with images of children's shoes abandoned in Japanese schools shown on last night's news - shoes of a lost generation of youngsters.
10 days on from the earthquake and tsunami, still details are only emerging of the scale of loss and devastation and with fears of further radiation danger, it seems we may never know the real toll of the disaster. Only God knows.
However, witnessing this scale of loss, wouldn't you think that we'd grasp how precious human life is and cease from war?
Even if a mother should forget her own child, I will never forget you. How can I forget you. I have written your name on the palm of my hand.
Isaiah 49:15,16

Power is more potent than precious human life in some instances. How can money be poured into missiles when the people of Japan are in such need? Why can't the war effort be channeled into ways of peace?

Always more questions than answers and the rain on us must be the Lord's tears as he weeps for His people in their broken ways in this broken world.
