So this week I have chosen her original "Light a Candle" blog which was a Christmas one in 2010. She updated it after a tsunami, tornados and floods. I share her plea, "Light a Candle".
27th May 2011,
If you are still reading this blog you are probably doing so out of idle curiosity or because you think I'm completely bonkers! Vaguely, at the back of your mind you remember this one posted almost six months ago and anyway it is not Christmas. . .well not for another six months although the shops will be warning us that it's on it's way in about another two months.
This week, America has been hit by tornados resulting in most of Joplin, Missouri being razed to the ground. Many other areas have experienced devastation. Earlier this year Japan suffered a tsunami, thousands either killed or left homeless and before that Australia endured severe flooding.
During the week there was a request on Facebook to have candle on your profile picture, and an ongoing event until June 24th, To light up facebook -FOR ALL THOSE DEALING WITH THESE DESTRUCTIVE STORMS.
I will be burning a candle this weekend for ALL of those still suffering from one of these natural disasters this year and I urge you to do the same. Either light a candle in your home and/or place a candle on your profile picture if you are on FB. Feel free to copy and paste mine, if you do not have a suitable photo of your own.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been involved in these horrendous events.
My thought for the week: LIGHT A CANDLE
Until next week, TTFN,
Donald (& Sofia)
