The Devastation and Beauty of Nature

These last few days, like a lot of people, I have been saddened by the news and images coming to us from Japan. The devastation that nature can bring to parts of the world is unimaginable to those of us who live in parts of the world that are not at big risk of earthquakes, tsunamis, hurricanes etc, and we can only try to imagine the heartbreak and feelings of shock and loss that these people must be going through.

On Sunday we went out for a walk to a country park just a few minutes walk from the house and their could not have been a bigger contrast to the images that are coming to us to through our TV screens. The sun was shining, the birds singing, the buds appearing on the trees as nature comes to life at the start of Spring. Families out enjoying the weather, children laughing and playing and dogs running along beside their owners.

This just made me realise that along with all the struggles and problems of our every day life, we should be grateful and appreciate more the things that we do have.

My thoughts are with those in the world who are not as lucky x
