Joy and Sorrow

Mosaic5517220



Lots of sweetness here this week, with these two cute little boys totally getting into the holiday---not to mention their cute father, who completely surprised me with this. Flowers, chocolate, and photo software---how well this man knows me!



A sad end to a beautiful day when I saw the headline "Gun Shooter on Illinois Campus" online---I couldn't breathe for a second. My brother is a junior at the University of Illinois, and my little sister is getting her graduate degree at another Illinois campus. By now everyone knows it took place at Northern Illinois University, less than a mile from where yet another sister lives. An auditorium of freshmen and sophomores. Just unthinkable. I can't bring myself to really think of their parents, only pray they find strength and peace somehow.



Something else that made me cry--this post by Julie's husband Brendan. I don't believe everything happens for a reason, and I don't believe everything is a coincidence either. But I do believe miracles happen daily---whenever a heart receives what it needs. I'm so grateful to him for sharing that story.
