Our particular fast during Lent this year has given me plenty of opportunity to think about things. Why do I spend so much of my time organizing, discarding and purchasing them? What does it say about my faith in God that I base so much of my life around objects?
But the earthquake in Japan has given me a new question to ponder: what would I do if I lost them all?
PS – Here is an old post on a similar subject.
Also, a post by my cousin, Lena, who is currently in Japan.
