So, it seems everyone is posting and blogging about the horrible tragedy in CT last week; and me, not usually one for news, can't stop thinking about it either.  I've been crying randomly, just imagining dropping your sweet child off at school and...that's it.  Especially at Christmastime, when the excitement and joy usually are running high, and our minds are constantly racing to find new ways to bring the magic of Christmas to their lives.  This picture was posted on facebook, and I love it.  It is comforting to me to imagine Jesus there with those 20 children even before the event happened, waiting with them, easing their fears, possibly even showing them His glorious face so they would not see the bloodshed around them.  I'm weeping right now.  And you know what..."Jesus wept" too.  And I love it that our President reminded our nation of that fact...He is crying with us all too.  And He is here to give us a hug and wrap us in his warm, strong embrace.  Let's run into His arms right now and be comforted; hug your children tighter tonight; and pray for our nation, which is somehow seeking God even more it seems like after this tragedy.  Once again, Romans 8:28...
