Picking up the Pieces…..

I am not alone when I say my world stopped in its track Friday afternoon when I learned of the horrific news coming from Newtown, CT!

Having 2 precious boys of my own, and both P and I working in a school setting brought tidal waves of emotion!  How could this happen AGAIN?

We can’t possibly understand the horrific ‘why’, even when more details are unearthed…..

What we do know is that 20 beautiful children are lost to us, not having the chance to reach their dreams and full potential; 7 adults torn from their families/spouses/children way too soon!  Similar to fireflies…..shining so bright, here one moment….gone the next….no rhyme or reason, and very hard to comprehend!

My thoughts and prayers go out to those that were lost in this tragic event, and for the families and loved ones left behind.


“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it” Isaiah 55:8-11
