Newtown, Connecticut

What happened last Friday in Connecticut is still weighing heavy on my heart and mind. I cannot fathom or imagine the emptiness, pain, and unimaginable sadness that the families of these lost loved ones and children are experiencing. The questions they have, the feeling that this pain in their hearts will never be lifted, the longing for someone that is no longer here on earth. I am not a parent, but I am the big sister to a little brother...and the mere thought of losing him in that way is almost unbearable. My heart is broken, and I have them on my mind and in my prayers daily. I know God has the power to comfort them in a way no one here in this world is capable of.

 I hope you all will take the time to be in prayer for everyone involved in this tragedy, that God will take up the mothers, fathers, grandparents , brothers and sisters and relatives up in His arms and  comfort them.

"Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all our comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted in God."- 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
