Friends, I had planned on posting a blog about all that we have been up to preparing for Christmas today but my heart is so heavy right now that I am not able to do so.
Please pray for the families involved in the Newtown, Connecticut school shooting. I have spent much of the morning crying, praying and hugging my son tight as more and more news comes in about this senseless act.
I do not understand why these things happen. In times like these, we have to cling to what we know: God is good. He is not cruel, He is not unloving. How His father's heart must be breaking right now for these parents in grief for their babies. May He comfort them with the peace that only He can give.
"I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord. Be strong and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for the Lord."
