Prayers.

saturated canary digis 

Today I'm skipping my scheduled post in light of the tragedy in Connecticut.

Knowing there are families who have Christmas gifts hidden away for a child that won't be with them on Christmas anymore...that is a heartbreaking thought that makes me feel sick.

Today is simply beyond sad.  
And most of us just feel the outskirts of the pain.
I cannot fathom being in the center of this tragedy.  

Despite our broken and fallen world, 
their is a perfect Source of comfort.  
May God heal the families' lives and be an ever present source of strength
for their grieving hearts.

  6. I've been thinking about those poor little kids and how scared they must have been. Having my own little guy who is almost in of school age, I just cant image how it must be for the parents of these beautiful angels. Thank you for your post. Jennifer M

  8. I feel sick, too. I can't stop thinking about it. Tears are swollen behind my eyes just waiting for the final trigger to let go. I feel numb, and kind of hypnotic. I think at these times, we all feel just how much something like this would shatter our lives forever. We fear the probability of it happening to us or someone close to us. We fear how it would destroy us in an instant. It is a hopeless feeling, and we pray to God it never comes near us or our loved ones. I can't imagine how the community is coping with it. I can't imagine losing a child, a young child, in such a violent way. It is unfathomable. I know God would want us to forgive the shooter, but I can't right now--maybe some day, but I'm sorry, I cannot even think about it at this moment...

  9. After the loss of 3 people on Tuesday @ Clackamas Town Center in Oregon, the devastation in Connecticut only deepens the wounds. May our Lord help all the people in this beautiful town come together to hold each other up during the next few horrible weeks. Those precious babes were innocent...prayers are coming from us through the tears & disbelief.

  10. I thought the same thing, how many presents are wrapped for babies that will not be able to open them on Christmas morning...it's heartbreakingly the most devastating tragedy ever! It hits so close to home, my mom is a kindergarten teacher and because this world is so scary, that has become one of her worst nightmares, that something like this could happen, to know it is a reality is unbearable for her, for all of us....God Bless everyone who has endured this tragedy, another words God Bless us all....please pray, please love and be kind to one another.

  11. "...as real and solid and present as evil feels on days like these, we should remember that it is only a shadow of the Good it opposes, and that this unmaking force that seeks to corrupt and destroy is losing and will lose and has already lost. In this knowledge alone there is joy and consolation and hope."

  14. As a mother of a little girl in Primary school I feel both upset and sad hearing this horrific news. Dunblane (Scotland 1996) all over again. May Jesus welcome his sweet children into his arm and give comfort to the families left behind.
    Beautiful words Krista.

    Hugs, Mette

  15. My thoughts are with those families affected including those who were in the school but got out - it must have been very traumatic for them too.

  16. Amen....yesteday, when this was on the news all evening here in Denmark, my heart broked to pieces thinking of this terrible tragedy.
    The children who will never have a chance to find their path in life and the parents who now never will have the chance to see their love ones grow up - that grief must be so overwhelming and it makes me in tears when thinking of it. It makes you even more grateful to life surrounding you and it also makes you aware of how fragile life is.
    I know God is there with them comforting and soothing their hearts, preparing them for the sorrow times ahead ...Please send a prayer to all the families in grief.
    My heart is sad....

  39. My prayers and my little girl's prayers went up last night... she slept with me. Even her school had a lock-down last week because they saw a man with a gun heading into woods next to school. It's such a scary thing to think your kids could end up in danger at school. She's 11 and 5th grade but she was in tears thinking of the little kids who are gone and she didn't understand why it had to happen. As an adult, it's just as hard to fathom. Thank you, Krista, for your lovely words and for taking time to share prayers and love to the families. God bless.

  41. Words can not express my deep sadness for the loss of these little angels and also their teachers and helpers .It makes me sad to know that our babies are not safe even when they are in school.My prayers go to the families and friends of those who lost their lives , made worse by the fact that it is Christmas in a weeks time .I will continue to pray for God to pour healing down on all concerned Amen
