Let me just say that if you are not wearing green today you are safe with me. I was always horrified as a child that people were given the right to pinch me if I did not have on green. The whole "pinching thing" is all I ever learned about St. Patricks Day.
I am not equipped to pray for a whole country. My spirit is somehow wired to pray for individuals and so I have broken down my prayers for Japan into just one. I am praying for one nameless woman who woke up last week with her daily responsibilities on her mind and had her world ripped out from underneath her. I know that God knows her name and her heart, I just know to pray for her.
Today is Mary in Africa's 4th sober birthday and I have been so privileged to read her daily journey. She gets a "pinch free" day, I don't care what anyone says.
