Hello everyone. Around this time today, we usually share your features. As I prepared the post, my heart would not allow me.
Like many of you, I sat there watching in horror numbed. Tears streaming down my face thinking of these poor children. I imagine they cried, they called for their mommies or daddies or perhaps they didn’t have time to react.
It is difficult not to look up at the heavens and want to shout and say ‘why do you allow these things to happen?’. We are after all only human. I do believe that their sweet little souls are now with Him and so we must now pray for those who are left behind. Those whose lives will never be the same again and whose hurt is so deep they are probably questioning their own existence.
It should not take a tragedy like this to make us realize that our time on earth is precious. That the people we love are what makes this journey worth it. It should not take seeing dozens of people murdered to want to say ‘I love you’ to our children a little more often or want to hug them a little tighter. It should not take tragedies like this to want to make a change in the laws. Because for 27 people, it’s 24 hours too late.
‘He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds’ Psalm 147:3
I will be sharing your features tomorrow; I hope you understand.
Sending you so much love,
