Watching the news today, it was awful to see the devastation that Japan has suffered after the earthquake and tsunami.  It made me think so much of chapter 5 in One Thousand Gifts when Ann talks about wondering how to trust God - even when bad things happen.  

"How to lay the hand open for this moment's bread - when it will hurt."  p. 80

And then her realization, shared with me and all her readers - 

"Take the pain that is given, give thanks for it. and transform it into a joy that fulfills all emptiness."  p 100

"All is grace only because all can transfigure." p. 101

And He transfigures me and uses me.  How shall I react to this tragedy?
