My Heart Hurts


I went along today in ignorance.  I had not heard of the tragedy.  I went shopping, had lunch with some old friends, laughed and enjoyed their company.  I was ignorant to the tragedy.

I came home some time in the afternoon with all my packages and bags, plopped everything down on the couch and logged into Facebook.  I started seeing reports from different sources.  Then I read it on a status "....18 children dead, and 6 adults.."

I burst into tears and have hardly stopped crying since.  The unthinkable happened.  Just when you think you have probably seen it all, it happened.  And I sit here in Georgia helpless to do anything.  I'm here with all my children, trying to enjoy the kids coming home from college and the start of their Christmas break, and I'm a mess.

May God bless and watch over the brokenhearted.

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit (Psalm 34:18)
