In Mourning

There are just no words.  
No words to sum up the feelings, emotions, thoughts, prayers, heaviness or heartache that has been felt this weekend.  I wish that I had something moving or helpful to say, but I do not.  Everyone in Newton, CT is in my thoughts and prayers constantly.  It seems like there are few moments that go by that I do not think about them, or remember that someone is going through more loss than I could ever bear, a mere few states away.  I just can't imagine.
Here are ways that you can help.  I am going to make some cards with my kids to send (as if that is doing anything) to this address I saw.
Sandy Hook Elementary School
12 Dickenson Drive
Newtown, CT 06482
 I can not comprehend the amount of grief and loss and anger and loneliness that those families must be feeling.  We are praying and thinking and mourning for them and with them in every way we know how.  
Sandy Hook Elementary, we will not forget.   
Every child and teacher will be cherished and remembered as well as we possibly can.  We grieve for you and with you, and wish we could do so much more.

my heart is so heavy. I have hugged my sweet babies until they want to run from me. I don't want to turn on the news, but yet, when my kids are asleep-- i can't look away. I have so many friends, family, & most of our neighbors who are teachers... I just have sent up nonstop prayers for them. I saw this- http://www.somethingswanky.com/cookies-crafts-for-sandy-hook-bloggersforsandyhook/

I just want to do SOMETHING, but no matter what I do, it just doesn't seem like enough. The girls and I wore our green and white today. Masyn asked why- since she is only 4 I didn't tell her- I just said well we are remembering all of the kids that Jesus loves. I don't want my kids to grow up in a world where they are scared to go to school because they don't know if they are going to be shot. That NEVER entered my mind as a child & it shouldn't have to...

Have you seen any news from Oklahoma this weekend? A town about an hour north of us arrested an 18 year old boy about 4 hours before the Sandy Hook shooting hit the news. He was going to lure his classmates into the gym, chain the doors shut, & shoot them. 2 more schools are under investigation here in Ok also. My heart is broken. so broken.

May God wrap his arms around these families & hold them tight.
