Merry Christmas?

Seems so unfair to even say these words with the recent murders of so many innocent lives of those working and going to school in Sandy Hook Elementary school! 

I have cried so many tears over this past weekend and prayed so very hard for the parents and loved ones left behind.  I pray for answers, comfort and somehow a renewed strength for all.

When I pray I hear a voice within tell me not to be overwhelmed by the deep sadness (for that only makes us feel the lie of defeat that satan wants us to believe) but to look for the miracle to emerge from all this.  For God's word does tell us in Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the GOOD of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them".

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is that which I seek with all my heart and soul:

To see the world pay closer attention to the mentally ill (majority of our homeless and our murder's are mentally ill)  have tighter laws on guns (not take away our rights to bear arms but maybe not semi automatics or anything other than those for hunting and self defense. Cherish our loved ones more each and every day.

Yes, Merry Christmas to everyone!!!

May you hold steady to your faith to fight for what is right in this world and preserve NOT the lies and sadness but seek that which is TRUTH.  Let's all be more aware of those fighting mental illness and find more ways to help them rather than ignoring them and lets protect our rights without putting our loved ones lives at risk and lets love one another more!!!

1 Corinthians 13:13
"Three things will last forever, faith , hope and love- and the greatest of these is love"
