A Christian Response to Tragedy

My blog this week is to point you to another blog that I found very compelling.  It says what I would hope would be my response at a time like this.  And it expresses a faith that I pray each of my children and grandchildren would experience should they ever be in such a circumstance.  

If you have not already read this (it has had over a million readers already), please do.  The writer's name is Marie.  She wrote it on July 20; she has since prefaced it (July 22) with an explanation to detractors that would misrepresent her motive and heart in writing it, but the original post is still there and precious words they are!!

  3. Thank you for sharing. I have already "shared" it via facebook. That lady is so wise.
    I will go and read what she has to say to her detractors.

  4. I read that earlier this week. It's a great post and well deserving to be read over again. My favorite part is where she says, "God is always good. Man is not. Don’t get the two confused."
