Mixed Media Birthday Card

Just a quick post for today. We are having bad weather here. The electricity and internet are off and on. However, I shouldn't complain. I'm sure you've heard of the recent typhoon that left Central Philippines in a devastated state. My heart aches for my people and my prayers are with them.

Seeing photos of the situation there really puts things in perspective. How many times have we been guilty of complaining on FB, our blogs, Twitter and other social media because of trivial things? I couldn't sleep last night as the wind howled and strong rains poured. But I was still enjoying the blessing of a warm house and clean bed, and my family are all safe and sound. So many Filipinos didn't have any of them the last few days. We have so much to be thankful for.

EDIT: If you would like to help with the relief efforts in the Philippines, I recommend doing it through Action International. I have friends who served with them. Action International provides relief through the local churches.  

My card for today is something I shared on the Want2Scrap blog earlier. You can see the details HERE.
Finally, freedom is not free. Thank you, Veterans!
