Let the little children come unto me, and do not hinder them, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
- Matthew 19:14
My heart is so heavy today for the families who lost their precious children in Newtown. As a mother, I cannot imagine anything more painful than losing a child. Saturday morning, I woke up (after a sleepless night) hoping that it was all just a bad dream. The details are so upsetting, so I have stopped reading the news about it. I have been hugging my children extra tightly and thanking our teachers, who make so many sacrifices for our children every day.
I pray that these grieving families in Newtown will experience love, hope, and healing this Christmas season. They are forever in our prayers.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted.
