I’m at a loss of words. I want to say something…but when it comes to serious life altering tragedies like what occurred on December, 14th 2012 in Newtown Connecticut, I usually stay quiet out of fear that I may say the wrong thing, but really is there any right thing to say…?
I spent the last 2 years sitting in the kindergarten and first grade classes of the child I was caring for as a one-on-one nurse. Those children are most definitely still babies, I can’t imagine what the parents that lost their babies are going through; but I know that each child that lost their life here on earth is now living. Living in perfect peace with Jesus; I know that they are experiencing a love and joy that they could never experience here on earth.
I can’t help but imagine Christmas gifts that may go unopened this year, and the pain…the pain of the families as we approach Christmas.
Suddenly my “issues” seem small and insignificant in the light of this tragedy. Yes my baby is breech, but he’s safe, yes I had a rough pregnancy , but the result will be a beautiful life.
This was the work of the evil one, the devil which rules here on earth. Satan is not in hell like many may imagine; he was cast from heaven to earth, and his work is evident. (Isaiah 14:15; Ezekiel 28:16; Luke 10:18; Revelation 12:7-12)
So often we ask why did God allow this, or that; forgetting Satan who comes to kill, steal and destroy.
Our Heavenly Father by which all good things come (James 1:17) will take what was meant for bad and turn it for good.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
We are praying for Gods Peace which transcends ALL understanding to encompass the families, parents and siblings affected in Newtown, Connecticut…
