I Don't Understand ~ Stacey

I don't have much to say today. I'm on deadline to finish my current book, so I simply want to offer up prayers for the people in Boston who lost their lives and were injured in the senseless attacks on the innocent. I am also praying for the family members of all who lost a loved one, or are sitting at the beside of someone in the hospital due to this tragedy and others like it that are committed every day, all around our world.

I don't understand why these attacks happen, and you know, I'm not sure I want to ever truly understand the why. I don't ever want to harbor such darkness and evil in my heart that I could understand taking the lives of fellow human beings in such a cruel and cowardly way.

Someday the people who commit these atrocities against others will have to face God for what they've done, though in the moment, finding comfort in that is not always easy.

Hug your loved ones and make the best of the day before you.


  1. Death is difficult under the best of circumstances, to have to deal with that kind of tragedy when it was senseless and preventable is incomprehensible to me. My prayers go out to all who are affected by this horrible act. May God have mercy on our country.

  2. Ditto what all three of you said. I made the mistake of looking at pictures, and the images will haunt me for some time. Such a horrible, senseless tragedy. :-(

  3. And Wisconsin weather is crying out for Boston and the families of the bombing victims. Literally and figuratively.
    Very well said, Stacey.
