God Bless The Families of Newwtown,Conn.


20 beautiful children and six adults....

Via The Daily Bulletin


It is with a heavy heart I write this post.  The tragedy the families from Newwtown, Conn. experienced yesterday is unspeakable.  Losing a child creates a crater in your soul.  I pray for all involved to be comforted by God's grace.  Why do tragedy's like this happen?  There isn't a good answer to why or how something like this occurs.  Obviously, the shooter had mental problems and a disorder that went untreated or ignored.  It sounds as though he was ridiculed which must have caused a lot of pent up anger but we will never really know.  After a tragedy of this magnitude, we look for a way to find a tiny glimmer of good somewhere among the sadness.  Unfortunately, the only good that can come out of this unspeakable incident is the warmth felt by others, both people the families know and total strangers.    Last night there was a vigil held for the families at St Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church.  While the rest of us were decorating, shopping and enjoying the holiday season the town of Newwton, Conn was mourning the loss of so many from their own community  with families who's lives will never be the same.  Please take a few minutes and pray for these families. 

"Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; and in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by.Psalm 57:1"

Prayer from Mastin at "The Daily Love"

Dear God/Father/Mother/Source/Spirit/Divine Uni-verse, please help us to mend our hearts for the tragedy today in Connecticut. Please help to comfort the pain of the parents who lost their children too soon. Please surround all those who's lives have been forever changed because of the actions taken by fear and ignorance today. There can be no deeper pain than losing a child. Please help our nation to wake up and take action so that this never happens again. Please help us to heal our breaking hearts and please help us, even in this dark hour - to find Love in our hearts for the darkness of the world - for we know that Love is the only power that can heal our world. Amen.

  2. Thank you for your beautiful post Lisa. I am praying for the families of those sweet innocent children. And I am praying that through this our eyes will open and as a country we will come together and do more for one another. Those beautiful children deserve that from us.

  6. The tragedy has hit close to home and we keep the families in our hearts as we try to go about our daily routines. It is even tougher considering the time of year (with the holidays). Thank you for this post, Lisa.

  8. Lisa,
    I'm far away from it geographically, but those children could be any of our children, and the pain of it, though not felt as keenly as those who lost their own, is piercing. This can never be understood. I say prayers everyday for the suffering families.

    Blessings and happiness to you and yours,
    Keri
