I had a happy post ready to submit. But the wind has just been stolen from my sails...
Wednesday, January 14, 2009
The Mister just called to tell me that a friend of ours has died in Arizona in a tragic murder-suicide. They leave behind a beautiful school-aged girl.
Please pray for this little girl. Tragically orphaned...
And please, if you are experiencing domestic violence of any kind (as the victim or the offender), please, please seek help. Your life may depend on it.
Oh Lord, I do not understand.
But today, when I am completely at a loss for words and my heart aches in the wake of tragedy, I will put my hope in You. Be with this family. Comfort them with your power of the Holy Spirit; with the strong love of Christ; and the fullness of life that only comes from God. May you be a refuge for this family, a stronghold, during this time of serious trouble.
"May your unfailing rest be upon them, Oh Lord, even as they put their hope in you."
