Yesterday’s horrific events have taken a toll on us a nation. I woke up this morning still just as numb as I was when I went to bed last night.
I can’t even begin to imagine what those families of the loved ones that were murdered are going through. It’s just awful - there is no other way to put it.
But.....we all have to remember that this was not God’s will but this was evil...the devil. We live in a sinful world and bad things are still going to happen but God is always still with us. He has never left those families who are grieving right this moment....and He has never left any of us. In times of sorrow and crisis if we will look to Him for comfort...for strength...He will get us through this. But we we also have to be willing to accept God’s love and help. He helps us through other people and puts those people and things in our path if we will only recognize it.
For now during this holiday season more than ever we ALL need to get on our knees and THANK GOD for all the good things that have come our way and will continue to come our way. In the midst of this chaos if we will look for the positive...and have gratitude toward SOMETHING...we will find we are able to cope better than we ever thought. Doesn’t mean we forget what has happened but if we put our focus on God and all the good in the world...we then do not allow this evil to rob us of our thoughts. It’s about changing your own thinking process and your thoughts. No one can take that away from any of us.
So look to God for your strength and guidance! Hug your children more.....tell your loved ones you love them more often.....and your friends....and just be kind to one another. Don’t take people for granted....and appreciate others.
Live for TODAY. Stay in TODAY. This isn’t a dress rehearsal but the main event...TODAY. You don’t get a do over...so make the best of it!!
And this is my suggestion and it’s only a suggestion...but don’t sit in front of the telelvision watching all of this news about this horrible tragedy. Watching it over and over again is NOT going to make you feel better....it’s not going to change anything....and it’s just not healthy. Spend your gift of TODAY doing something meaningful...and worthwhile.
I’m Mary...and that’s all I have to say for now. God Bless you all...and Merry Christmas!
