Prayers For Newtown

There are no words, just prayers!  Prayers of comfort, strength, and love to those in Newtown, CT.  My heart as a mother, as a former elementary teacher, as an American, and as a human goes out to every person affected by this horrible event….

As we say in the Orthodox Church, “May their memory be eternal!”  We held a memorial service for those who lost their lives.  Hearing the list of names for the first time really hit home yesterday.  And as Elizabeth said, “It’s okay Mommy, they’re in heaven now where they’re safe!”  Through the mouth of a babe!

Trust Him

Trust Him when dark doubts assail thee,

Trust Him when thy strength is small,

Trust Him when to simply trust Him

Seems the hardest thing of all.

Trust Him, He is ever faithful,

Trust Him, for His will is best,

Trust Him, for the heart of Jesus

Is the only place of rest.
