This week we pause and take a collective deep breath in the midst of the holiday season to remember those whose lives have been interrupted in the most grievous of ways. We remember the lives of the children and the heroes lost in Connecticut and the lives of those who live on that will never be the same.
It is as if darkness has blanketed the world.
We pause and pray today.
It is the only thing to do when words are simply inadequate and the darkness so dark.
We know that the faintest of light rises in the darkest of days. Darkness will not overcome the light.
Today, we bow our heads and beg our faithful and merciful God to send a flicker of light in unbearable darkness.
If you are joining us for Word Filled Wednesday, we are dedicating this week to the memory of those lives lost in Connecticut. We will resume next week as ususal, but today, we pause and pray.
