Dear Lord,
What is it going to take for us to stand up and take notice?
When are we as a people going to learn our lessons?
Does the killing of 27 people not mean something anymore?
Why does there have to be so much pain and sorrow?

Dear Lord,
Please let the survivors and families know we are thinking of them.

Lord, you gave your son for us, and only you know the pain
you felt, just as only these families know what they are feeling now.

Let them know, dear Lord, let them know,
we know.

Amen

My first thought when I heard the news was...there are going to be mothers who won't have their babies with them on Christmas, how will they get through this? the beauty of this holiday season will never be the same for them...I have come to.....it is for this reason our Savior left the throne room of heaven & came to earth as the Christ child. who would grow up to be the Savior who would die for our sins & rise again so we could be saved from the evilness of our human hearts. Only those nail scared hands can gather those families in close in his arms & give comfort to the comfortless, the peace that passes understanding...Emanuell...God with us....if we've ever needed You, Lord it's now....

Thank you, Meri for your thoughtful post. God's heart is breaking right now as He has seen His beloved little ones suffer so unjustly.
I pray that He will wrap His loving arms securely around those who are hurting from this terrible event.
Blessings, my friend,

Hi Meri,
Coming by to let you know that you are the winner of the paper wreath give away from my 'Creating Christmas' party. So funny, that you just gave two wreaths away and now you've won one.
Hugs,
