I have decided to post tonight although my heart and mind have been wrapped around the families and children in Connecticut. It's hard to pretend things are normal when they are not normal at all. I just put my Christmas decorations up yesterday. I almost didn't. But because I use a lot of soft lights inside our living room, I decided to put the decorations up and have the lights be symbols of love and hope for the children who are no longer with us, the children who have suffered so much trauma, the adults who left loving families and children behind and the grieving hearts of so many especially the parents. My heart weeps.
I dedicate my Christmas blog to the Light of the World in whom we put so much trust - may our prayers be heard and solace be given to those who are in pain. Peace and Grace my friends.
