I still haven’t wrapped my head around the shootings and Sandy Hook. It’s consumed my thoughts, but it’s like I can’t keep thinking about it….but I do.
I can’t imagine those kids who saw what happened; I can’t imagine the adults that saw. I would be haunted. As for the kids, their poor little hearts and souls must be in agony, but yet they are still too young to process a lot of it.
The parents and the families who lost a child or family member are experiencing something I also can’t imagine. Even having had a child die, I know this is still such a different experience.
They all need our prayers. They really need them.
I thought last night….
that I would do a blog post for today, but I couldn’t think of anything besides those children. Then, today, when I put Knox & Sloane down for their nap, I thought I would do a fun Christmas blog post. Then, I kept thinking about those children.
I kept thinking about this picture….
The first time I saw it, I sobbed.
Then, I thought those angel babies and school employees have faces, and in no time, this picture came up on the TV….
They are real; they were real.
This is real.
All I know is we aren’t safe. I don’t care if it’s home or school or Target or the mall. I don’t care if it’s guns or knives or mental illness or the government or a car wreck.
And if you feel unsure of yourself or someone around you, tell someone.
We aren’t in control.
You just need to feel comfortable with your life and where you will go after this life. I pray for you to know God is in control.
Obviously the shooter was lost. His family needs prayers as well. He took his mother’s life.
Hold your babies, friends and family tight.
Lend your heart and hands this holiday season.
