I have reflected on what it means being made in the image of God. In fact I have read a book about it. I still don't understand it very well. The closest I have come to understanding is what I learnt this week from Psalm 139:14 where it says that God must be praised because "I am fearfully and wonderfully made." The encouragement from this is that God planned everything before I was born and so are the brothers and sisters going through the tragic loss of life in Haiti.With this realization, no one has the authority to put down what God purposely brought about.

It was a sad day to see pictures of the earthquake devastation in Hahiti. I certainly felt for the people of Hahiti. Canada's Governor General (rep for the Queen) hails from Haiti and it was most humbling to see her break down and she gave a press conference on the tragedy. As much as most of us are helpless to provide a helping hand, anything that we can provide to those doing the work on the ground will be an act of kindness. Let us also uplift the men and women who are trying their best to save a few lives, for the most part with their bare hands in prayer for their safety and security.
