I have been sitting, staring at this computer screen trying to put into words emotions and feelings that are unfathomable. Everything seems so trite and just not full enough.
The truth is we are not supposed to be able to grasp yesterday's tragedy in Connecticut. We are not supposed to have to put words to the utter shock of such an unthinkable act.
It is not supposed to be like this...but we live in a dark, fallen world.
My heart breaks for those families that have to deal with this senseless, horrific act of violence personally. My prayers have been unceasing since the news first broke.
I sat in the audience of my grandsons Christmas performance last night with tears in my eyes.
This is what it's supposed to be like...in a world filled with light and hope. Children should be fidgeting with clothes, trying to stand still, enjoying their new shoes and singing about the birth of our Savior.
The unthinkable thought ran through my mind, as I'm sure it's run through yours. What if...
I don't have to tell you to hug your family tighter, tell them you love them and thank God for the blessing of one more Christmas together.
