tragedy after tragedy after tragedy...


…and on and on and on…

Just when we think we might all get a break from the latest mass shootings, another one happens. This one in a church. A church. About four hours from our home.

Although many, many, too many of us have been saying for too many years there’s truly nowhere we are safe, we really want to believe, deep down in our spirits and souls, that as we sit in God’s House, we’ll be okay. Our children and grandchildren will be allowed to worship and praise Him in peace. Free from danger and violence.

I was excited about a silly little post I was going to do tonight. I’ll save it. I’ve cried several times this afternoon. I’ve prayed every hour since I heard about this latest tragedy. What I haven’t done is laugh. I still don’t feel like even smiling. It seems like both of those efforts would be disrespectful to the victims, their families and their friends.

So I’ll wait…

In the meantime, let us all PLEASE continue to pray to Our Lord God Almighty for these shocked and heartbroken people. And for everyone’s protection from the despicable, vile, hideous, unbelievable Satans in this world.

In sadness, confusion and despair, but with deep determination, I pray for each of you tonight. Your families. Your friends. Your well-being. Your futures.
