I have no words. My country is under attack from within again. We knew it would come. When we sat there watching the flickering images on the television of the attacks in Germany and France and America, and Brussels . . . we knew even then that it would come, eventually . . . and now it is here, my heart breaks. I struggle to be able to contemplate or understand such an ideology, such hatred towards others that are different, this intolerance, this barbarism. It is not of God, or from God, not in His name . . . it has nothing to do with God. It is the weakness of man, the evils of man, the twisted thinking of man.
Oh how He must weep when He looks down upon
His children and sees what they do
to each other, again
There is no justification for such acts.
They will not win. For I believe in the goodness of God, and whilst I may cry today, for a moment . . . I have a hope in a brighter tomorrow. They may make life more difficult for us, but they cannot break us.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

"Give your hands to serve and your hearts to love."
~ Mother Teresa
Let our hearts dwell on all that is good. Seek after it. Look for the light, be the light. Remember . . . for all that is bad in this world, there is much, much more that is good. It is just that the bad shouts louder. All that is good speaks with a small, still voice, but it is there. We just need to close our ears to the shouting and listen for the whisper.
Never forget . . .
