A magnitude 8.8 earthquake struck central and south Chile  on Saturday. Since then, there have been over 90 aftershocks. Thankfully the death toll was much MUCH smaller than the one that struck Haiti about 6 weeks ago – due in part to the eathquake “consciousness” in Chile, as well as the epicenter being offshore.


It is estimated that over 2 million people are affected by this disaster. People need food, clean water, shelter…

“I cannot believe my eyes”

These were the first words out of Big T’s mouth this morning. And I have no clue what he was talking about.

Here are the things that are making me go “I cannot believe my eyes” this morning

1) The magnitude of the earthquake in Chile (will be getting it’s own post).

2) This article. A postitive article about christians (YAY!), and a sort of “call to action” for everyone. Says a lot of the things I am thinking, and a lot of the things I want to say to both christians and non-christians.

3) The numbers on the scale this morning. Not in a good way.
