Personal thoughts


I certainly haven't felt like blogging the last three days. I hate that life can go on so easily, when for the families that were robbed of their babies and loved ones in such a horrendous way last Friday, it has completely stopped and will never be the same again.

And yet life just does go on.
We went to a beautiful wedding Saturday afternoon, hung out with friends and watched Daddy coach at a basketball tournament later that evening, went to church Sunday morning and ate out with family afterwards. Finished up Christmas shopping today. Excitedly watched snow fall this evening. Put together a puzzle and played charades with our kids.

Enjoying life and time together.
Look outside, guys...
"It's snowing!"
It doesn't mean that in between I haven't welled up with tears every single time I've read or watched an update on the news or online. It doesn't mean I haven't prayed for those mamas and daddys as if they were my personal friends. 

I have. I will.

Phillipians 4:7 - And because you belong to Christ Jesus, God’s peace will stand guard over all your thoughts and feelings. His peace can do this far better than our human minds.


  1. An absolutely great post. Can I link it to for my post tomorrow? I haven't known what to say and you did it so well, tears through smiles this weekend thinking about the sadness on the east coast, but there were still planned events that went on.

  2. Brought me to tears Jodi, you did a beautiful job , so proud.

  3. i know what you mean!
    i feel so horrible about the shooting. i just can't believe it. i heard that neighbors around that area took down their christmas decorations because they felt bad for celebrating when people around them were so sad.

    1. It is a tough (and touchy) situation, that's for sure.
