Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” ~ Matthew 19:14
As our nation tries to make sense of the devastating tragedy that occurred in Newtown, Conn. on Friday, I’m keenly aware of the overwhelming sadness that’s crept into this mother’s heart. The anticipated Christmas preparations and my daily worries seem so trivial in the light of this horrific event. I cannot fathom the unimaginable pain the families of the victims are facing. I cry with them….
May we, as a nation & humanity, pray for God’s grace for those whose lives are forever afflicted by this evil act.
And he said to me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest on me. ~ 2 Corinthians 12:9
