Matthew 19:14

:But Jesus said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14

My heart is absolutely broken as I watch this tragedy unfold on my tv.  A gunman entered a Connecticut Elementary school this morning and shot and killed 26 people... 20 of those being sweet innocent children.  I will never understand how someone could do something so horrific.  20 sweet babies won't get to go home from school today to enjoy their weekend, they won't get see what Santa brings in a few weeks, they won't get to grow up and fulfill all of their little dreams.  I can not even begin to imagine what these parents are going through right now.  There is nothing in this world more sweet and innocent than a little child and I will never understand how someone could harm a sweet baby like that. 

I sit here praying for all of these victims.  The only comfort I can even begin to find with this tragedy is knowing that those little angels are in Heaven now and won't ever have to be hurt again.  They won't have to see violence or heart ache in this world anymore.  I know God has a plan for everything and he knew this awful tragedy would happen today but I just can't help but ask myself why?  This country needs Jesus now more than ever!

I am so thankful for my precious little girl sleeping peacefully in her bed right now.  Every single night when Hadley and I say our prayers, we say "please watch over us and keep us safe."  Now, more than ever, I pray this for my baby girl.  Please watch over her and keep her away from harm.  Lord, be with these parents who won't get to hold their babies tonight.  Comfort the children and the people of Newton, Connecticut who lost their family and friends today.
