Lost in Japan

Origami soul
Pressed in rice paper tightly
A tomb of beauty
Memory of Geisha's heart
Tsunami tears in albums...

    That reads like a beautiful picture album...Good luck in the contest with this sure winner...Thanks for stopping by and for the prayers that you have sent up and will be sending up over the next few weeks..We will need God's strength and healing to try to get through this..I started on the steroid pack this morn and I can feel the inflammation leaving my body...That combined with the prayers is lifting me higher..Sara
