Then and Now

The last time I'd gone to our beach was when we took Carol out looking for sea glass. That was a fun day. I loved sharing our special beach with Carol, a special friend. Fun to connect a past assignment with a current assignment. 



On our way home for church today, Mike pulled in to Kaihohen (Momoishi Beach area)...there is yellow tape up so you can no longer park in the parking lot....I'll post a photo here so the kids can see what things look like now...

The area has a somber feel to it now. Several other Japanese families were out, doing what we were doing I think....visiting a favorite spot, considering the events of the past week, sort of stunned and struck at all that has happened. I wanted to simply kneel down and spend some time in prayer.....but it wasn't the time...yet. 

Here's the gatehouse we always told the kids would be closed to stop storms and tsunamis from going up the "river" and destroying homes....

We've walked along this wall often..... 


It's just a small piece of the bigger picture...but it's our picture.....
