Thinking this all through.....




SO many posts about it.
We are all dealing with it in our own heart-torn way.
 Yes, absolutely. No one would ever consider turning a blind eye.
 
 
 I understand how you all have been hurting.







I had earlier made a conscious and thought-filled decision to not publically post anything about it and try to carry on the Reason for the Season as best as possible.

If you are one of my frequent readers you know I often share my  spiritual beliefs here all year long......but I just didn't want to "go there" on this one....but after these few days, and it still weighing heavy on my heart, I just felt had to say something. And all I could think of is:




Keep your Faith.
Balance the darkness around us by vigilantly staying the course.
 
 
Believe that things - even horrible things - happen
and we aren't supposed to understand this mystery.
 
But we are to stay Vigilant and Strong
to the end of our days, and to the end of this system of things.

Keep your eyes to the Light!
 


 

 

You, Oh Lord, keep my lamp burning; our God turns our darkness into light.

-Psalm 18:28


Third Sunday of Advent - Thes. 5:16-22



Brothers and sisters: Rejoice always.
Pray without ceasing.
In all circumstances give thanks,
for this is the will of God for you,

in Christ Jesus.
Do not quench the Spirit.
Do not despise prophetic utterances.
Test everything; retain what is good.
Refrain from every kind of evil.







Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

Mark 10:14


 
May the fallen rest in Peace with the Lord.

  1. Very nice memorial, well said. I think if what Anne Franks wrote: "In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart." Holding on to this right now too ♥

  4. Another lovely post, well done and it is so hard to keep it that way. We sang away in a manger yesterday and the last two lines sort of sum it up. Through our minister for a little loop. God bless

  5. A very touching and heart-felt post, Michele. It's hard to put words to such a tragedy. God bless!

  6. Can definitely relate, Michele! I know I am still processing all of this, asking God lots of questions about the "whys" of it all, but like you, I remain convinced it's important to keep faith in God and not man. I think Sandy Hook will be in all our prayers for a long time to come.

  7. My heart remains heavy, too, Michele. It's so very difficult, but yes, I believe most people are good and kind and helpful. I wasn't sure whether to post anything about the tragedy either...but I also didn't feel right not acknowledging it, so I did something very simple. Being around all my little nieces and nephews on Saturday was joyous...but also tough as I thought of those little angels, now in Heaven.
    Big hugs,
    Cindy
