GRATEFUL GIRL'S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
A day like today is nearly impossible to process. The inhumanity in Las Vegas. #prayforvegas The heartbreak of losing the #1 Heartbreaker. #riptompetty
My heart is busted wide open with sadness.
I try to be light and pithy here as often and as exuberantly as I am able. I try to offer some hope and include Bible passages without judgement or force. But I cannot ignore the fact that the day's events and the scripture message coincide. GOD IS WITH US.
It may not appear so in the face of tragedy and despair. But remember, the best of mankind also surfaces in these dark moments. And that's HIM. #Godiswithus
Take heart; have faith. Hold your loved ones tight and treat your fellow humans well...today and always. PRAY...and remember, He's here. He's always here.
Psalm Ps 87:1b-3, 4-5, 6-7 R. (Zec 8:23) God is with us. His foundation upon the holy mountains the LORD loves: The gates of Zion, more than any dwelling of Jacob. Glorious things are said of you, O city of God! I tell of Egypt and Babylon among those that know the LORD; Of Philistia, Tyre, Ethiopia: "This man was born there." And of Zion they shall say: "One and all were born in her; And he who has established her is the Most High LORD." They shall note, when the peoples are enrolled: "This man was born there." And all shall sing, in their festive dance: "My home is within you." R. God is with us. Alleluia Mk 10:45 R. Alleluia, alleluia. The Son of Man came to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many.
