I decided to go see our land and thought about yesterday's horrific events the entire way. A 20-year old broke into an elementary school in Connecticut and shot 20 innocent children and 6 adults. I have shed many tears and questioned why it happened in the first place. I mean, I know there is evil in the world and bad things happen, but come on someone massacring first-graders? Its unimaginable.
However, I was reminded as I drove through beautiful fields of green grass, that we serve a Good God. He wants to help us, not harm us. His plans are for us to prosper and to give us a future. It just so happens that the future for those precious babies and teachers will be rejoicing in Heaven with Him this Christmas.
It wasn't until I got home and looked back at a picture I snapped, that I noticed the pink cross on the pavement.
A sweet reminder that God is good, it's people that are bad.
Pray for everyone affected by this tragedy, may they find a peace that surpasses understanding.
