Make it Stop

I couldn't believe it when I heard the news about West, Texas last night.



It's all just too much.

How much more can we take all at once?

That's a rhetorical question. I really don't want to know the answer.

  2. Prayers for sure. Actually I just heard about it. I am so glad it wasn't another intentional one.

    1. Me too. But it's terrible timing. Reminds me of the explosion in France just a few days after 9/11.

  3. There are good people in this world. And there's bad. Without each other there would be no balance.

    It breaks my heart.

  4. It made me have even more respect for my firefighter hubby which I didn't think was possible.

    1. Your husband is a hero and so are you. Thank you for being willing to send him out there to keep people safe.

  6. I know this isn't the most encouraging but it helps me make sense of things going on..
    Deut. 30 - See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. 16 For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess.

    17 But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed. You will not live long in the land you are crossing the Jordan to enter and possess.

    19 This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live 20 and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, and he will give you many years in the land he swore to give to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

    1. I try to remember that the Lord is mindful of us and what is happening and that he's got this.

      It still hurts the heart to see the suffering.

  7. There has been a ridiculous amount of tragedy this week and this month in general. It really does need to stop, at least for a few weeks so we can get our bearings.

    The West, Texas explosion is horrible. We're praying for Boston and for our own state right now. It's rough. If anything else happens, I won't have time to pray for everyone, I'll need to quit my job to do it. :(

  11. This one hit closer to home than the bombings. Not to say they won't both be with me forever, but being married to a man who runs in to situations like this... So terrifying.
