Virginia Tech Massacre

As I am driving to Mansfield to spend two weeks with my family and friends, I had no idea what was happening in the world. All seemed peaceful until I walked into my parents house to see the news. I sat there in horror as they went through the timeline of the morning's events. I am grieving over the families that never got the phone calls from their son or daughter to say that they were fine. I am grieving for the gunman who found life so intolerable to take his life and so many others. Lord, help the family of the gunman as they are tagged with this devastating event. Bring peace to the many students at this college and the families who lost a loved one. Jesus, bring salvation and victory!
"I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living." Psalm 27:13

That is such a good verse that we all need to be reminded of this week as we deal with this horrific tragedy!

This is a good reminder that we all need to be sharing more about the Good News! Because there is Good News and people obviously need to hear it! Hey let me know when you are free the next two weeks, I would love to come and see you and Keegan!
