Dec 162012

I have been so touched by all the beautiful posts that have been circulating in the past couple of days in reference to the horrible tragedy of Friday.

I have nothing further to add, but just wanted to take the moment to pause, and offer my small voice to the chorus of love and support that are surrounding these families.

Our hearts are breaking, and the pain is too unimaginable.

While I can’t yet figure out how to put my prayers into words, they are with everyone who is hurting and aching.

Wishing there was some way to erase all of the  agony and for each to feel the loving arms of Jesus holding them tight.

    Meredith, I am with you on this one and will admit that I truly can’t stop crying. Just when I think I am done more come. I agree it has been comforting to read others feelings on this, too and to know so many of us are experiencing the same feelings on this.


      The voice and support of the online community has been such an incredible blessing in the past couple of days. Crying with you and giving you hugs, Janine.


    Beautifully said, my friend. It’s so hard to know what to do in times like this. Praying and crying seem to be the only things that come natural.


    well said, thanks for taking the time to share.


    I agree. I have not yet found the words. I’ll continue to hug my babies tighter and pray for peace for the families.


    Meredith, I am sick to the very innermost soul of my body. I can’t write anymore as I await the prayer Vigil Service because I can’t stop crying, either. There are no words……. Thanks for your post! TC


    This was perfect Meredith! *hugs to you and your family*


    Beautiful post…there are no words and the world feels helpless. I wish there was something more that we could do to erase the pain.


    The only way that I can cope with the thought of this horror, is to think of those beautiful children being held by Jesus. It is awful to realize that there is evil enough in this world for this to happen. My prayers are going out to the families.


    I can’t seem to think of anything else.


    Amen. I’ve been trying not to follow the story too closely just because I need to sleep at night. But my sympathy for those parents…..I can’t even imagine and wish there was something more I could do than just be sorry.


    Beautifully said Meredith. Praying and crying…and more praying and crying. The blogs have been so powerful too. All writing the words on our hearts. All praying the words of our souls. All trying to find any reason in understanding…it all.


      I know, Chris. I have been so grateful to read what others have been able to put into words when I can’t seem to get my thoughts together myself. What a blessing to have others to pray and cry with…
