Peace for my broken heart!


I woke up at 5:30 am this morning, not able to go back to sleep as my mind kept thinking back on the horrific tragedy that happened yesterday. My heart just hurts. 
I got teary eyed, watching the news casts here and there yesterday. I have a hard time understanding why! I feel so much sorrow for the family of the boy who made such a mess of the poor lives of these innocent children and their families. How I am sure his family wishes that they could go back and try to help him more. He obviously was a very very sick boy, and my heart goes out to his family.

On another note of those sweet small children, I hugged my two boys so super tight last night as I put them to bed. Then started sobbing as I left their rooms. Those sweet families didn't get to tuck there little ones into bed last night. It all really finally hit me. The reality that it did really happen. 
I often wonder if life really is fair. However, I can imagine those sweet children in the arms of the Savior ... as he allowed each one in his arms as he did in the scriptures. He loves those little children and comforted them I am sure. Now it is time for us to comfort those sweet families that have experienced a loss that none of us can comprehend. 

My thoughts and prayers are with each family that is suffering from this tragedy. My hopes are that you feel the love from your Heavenly Father, and that the spirit will comfort you and confirm that those sweet children are in the best place they can be right now. Heavenly Father will take care of it, 
and will apply his justice and mercy to those involved.
I hope as a human family we can all agree,
that our peace does not come from things of this world, that peace comes from above!
