The most requested thing for dinner around here? Noodles. With butter.

Mother and son

She purchased guns and kept them in the house.

According to the reports, he had a personality disorder.

Did she buy those guns to protect herself from him?  Too late now.  We might never know.

Some days, it's tough to be a teacher.  I don't dwell on school shootings and I am not afraid for my life, but I wonder...  what would I do for my students if the unthinkable happened?  How would I go about trying to keep them from harm?  I study the building and plan the escape routes and then... then...?

I pray.  Not just for me or my students, but for all teachers and students everywhere.  It's the only thing you really can do.  God is sovereign. He was not surprised or shocked by what happened yesterday.  Saddened, yes.  But not shocked.  He knows this world is fallen.  He knows we have free will and can make choices for good or for evil.  He cares for those families in Connecticut and is big enough to carry their grief if they let him.

I pray they let him.

Peace.

  1. I pray they let Him, too.

    And on another note, did you get your photo situation fixed yet? I can't wait to see more . . .

    If I don't get a chance, I want to wish you and your wonderful family a very Merry Christmas, my friend!
