Like most of you, I watched in horror ... and in shock as the news reports rolled in of last Fridays event. I cried, prayed, and counted down the minutes until I could pick my kindergartener up from school. I questioned why, how, and why again. I questioned what kind of world we live in, and what is happening to this country? I questioned whether or not I was really doing all that I could do for the kingdom of god, if I was being a light and a tool in every situation that was presented to me. I questioned if I showed enough love and compassion to those around me...and if I was doing my best with parenting the three small children I am blessed with. And then I thought about all those families that had their joy stolen. 

Through all my thoughts and questions. Not once did I question, where was God? Or why did God allow this happen? Because I know, God was there with each and every child and he is with them now. I know that God did not allow this to happen. I know this because God is love (1 john 4:8) and God is good.all.the.time. Genesis tells us that we are created in Gods image, and I can't imagine a single parent, or person, out here who's heart is not breaking for this tragedy. If it breaks our hearts that much, then just think how much more it breaks God's.? We live in a fallen world. This world is not our home. There is a heaven as there is a hell, and Satan is hard at work. We are in a spiritual war. So we need to put on our armor of god,  and be ready...ready for when the enemy attacks, be armed with scripture, stand on the truth, pray, and more than anything love. (matthew 22:36-40)

I will be praying for those family, friends, and everyone effected by the event at Sandy hooks. 

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." john 16:33

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted
    and saves the crushed in spirit. /// psalm 34:18
