The word coming out of the States today is just…I don’t know…horrifying, terrifying, bewildering. The second worst single-person massacre in American history happening in an elementary school. 26 people dead due to a 24 year old kid in such pain? Why? How could God let this happen? How does this serve His purpose? Believe me, I will be on my knees asking Gd for answers. Because the answers are beyond me.

I remember Columbine, remember sitting, hand in hand with my husband, watching in horror. That was only thirteen years ago. But these little children? How could anyone do this to them? These little ones and their parents, their teachers, will all most definitely continue to be in my prayers, though.

My husband was saying that this was because people don’t know God and His mercy, don’t know that you can turn to Jesus with your pain. Maybe the best thing I can do is redouble efforts in ministering to teens and their parents so that they know that there is a way out of the pain. Someone to turn to when it is all too much for them to handle.

Maybe this is all any of us can do.

Have Fun with God

Then I decided to spend my time having fun because I felt that there was nothing better in all the earth than that a man should eat, drink, and be merry, with the hope that this happiness would stick with him in all the hard work that God gives to mankind everywhere.
