More Thoughts On Sandy Hook

Just now I read a comment my dear friend, Pam, wrote on this mornings post; she eloquently shared what I haven't found words for yet.  Another blogger who many of you may know, Ann of Holy Experience, had a post today entitled The Truth About Sandy Hook, where is God when bad things happen; you can find it here Ann shared some profound thoughts on life in our world.  If you have a few minutes, there might be truth for you to glean; she did share one of Corrie Ten Boom's sayings that I am holding onto for these families "There is no pit so deep, that God's love is not deeper still".   Today, we can choose bitterness and grief or we can choose to focus on Him.  Today, I am joining you at the foot of the Throne, upholding so many who've lost so much; praying for grace and comfort in these days. I am also holding onto my grands a little tighter and praising God for the gifts He has blessed me with.


  1. True words, it is such a tragedy sometimes it is hard to even find the right words. It reminds us to appreciate everyone that we are fortunate enough to have in our lives.

  2. Thank you Noreen, for expressing what is in my heart! Ann's words were a timely nugget of truth!

    Blessings to you and your precious family!

  3. I will scoot right over to read what this blogger shared after I am done here. Our former pastor Dave Rosales also wrote a post entitled Where was God? here is the link to that if you are interested. Such truth...

    The pictures of your grands btw are just adorable. Glad you enjoyed the program. Have a good day my friend! HUGS

  4. Yes, I am so glad he is there for us even in our darkest hours.

  5. Amen Noreen. It is difficult to imagine what the families are going through, the community. We know God is in the midst of them...of that we can be assured.

  6. Yes, sometimes we take things for granted. We should thank God for everything we have

  7. Noreen, I just saw your previous post on the grands. So precious. So sweet and innocent. And I, like you, have felt almost guilty to be having this lovely opportunity to be sharing in their Christmas magic.
    Our hearts are broken. We have cried so many tears, and prayed and prayed, for all of them. It was just too horrible to comprehend.
    Bless you and yours.
