Praying for Restoration

School: writing a weekly report on a day when 20 little children were shot to death seems a bit trivial. Here I was feeling a bit guilty about how short we were on academics this week. We spent a lot of time reading out loud and individually, coloring Advent pages, and playing outside. My kids are safe, happy, growing, secure, innocent;
and heartbroken over the evil that broke loose today.
Come Lord Jesus.
Heal the hearts that will never be the same.
Help them turn towards You, instead of away.
Beauty for ashes, Lord.
Your JOY, in the midst of heart wrenching pain.
