Pray for Peace in Ukraine

I don't really know what is going on. . . one of the difficult things about living on this side of the pond.

However, my friend in Kherson e-mailed me to alert me about the political unrest, especially in Kyiv.

It makes me cry. I know that some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. And though the Lord worked mightily in the winter of '04-'05, still much of that was political and not spiritual--so why am I surprised at the recent events?

Please pray for Ukraine.

Oh no! Ok, I will pray. I'm so sorry. I know big pieces of your heart and lives are/were there.

Thank you.

I still feel like I don't really "know" all that is going on over there. . .

You have my prayers. Your mother and the Ukrainian eggs are beautiful.

Blessed Easter to you and yours!

From someone currently living in Kiev, it doesn't really seem like that much unrest. Unlike during the Orange Revolution, I think this situation is more on the politician level as opposed to the "regular person" level. Although I've heard that there have been some gatherings, it isn't as widespread as before. It certainly isn't a common topic of conversation as you just go about your business like it was in 2004. Maybe this is a more important crossroads, but it doesn't really feel like it has the potential for change that the Orange Revolution seemed to have.
