I was just tucking my children into bed and was praying with them when my oldest; Skye, who is 7 prayed this:
Thank you for the beautiful people of Japan. I am so sad about the tsunami and all of the people who were swept away. I am sad that they were not saved. I am sad for the people who got hurt and have scars. But God, thank you for their scars because that means they were not swept away and they can be saved.
I was so moved by these simple, honest, true words of a child that I HAD to share.
God, THANK YOU for our scars.
