Thought for the day

Another report of a mass school shooting. This time in Texas at an elementary school.

What is wrong with this world that makes an 18 year old go into an elementary school and start shooting? And how does an 18 year old even get a gun? Are there no age restrictions in the States? Or maybe the need to take a course before being able to use one? You know like you have to do in order to drive?

It sickens me what is happening in the States. I wish I could say the world but I don’t hear in the news that within a one week period two mass shootings happen anywhere else. Maybe there are but I am pretty sure we’d hear about it.

Stricter gun regulations are needed in the US now. In the meantime, prayers go to the families of the victims.


Thought for March 15

As I lay on my couch, snuggled under a blanket with a pillow under my head, I watch the 11pm news here, and my heart hurts.

Watching the news of the war, and the fight that the Ukrainians are experiencing, I am so grateful to be safe, well fed and comfortable.

I wish I could help in some way, but the most I can do is pray for them, and hope that peace comes sooner rather than later.

I pray that the refugees have a safe place tonight to lay their heads.

I pray that those who are fighting to save their country know that the world is praying for their safety.

Peace and love to you all.

No fly zones

I’ve been watching CNN all week and am horrified by what Putin is doing. I was crying today watching the families that fled to Poland trying to keep their kids warm. My heart breaks for them all.

But my concern with all of this is an escalation to a full on world War. Putin is crazy and I don’t know if declaring no fly zones are what we need to do. Nuclear war is a huge worry, and while all of this is happening, the crazier man in North Korea is sending missiles out.

I pray for the entire world – these are scary times for all of us.
