WHERE IS GOD IN THE DARK?

A PAUSE IN ADVENT...
I pause today to remember the victims of the latest school shooting in Connecticut.

It's hard to think about being Merry when something as tragic as the latest school shooting happens. There are no words...But Ann Voskamp always has just the right thing to say even when the question is "Where is God in the dark"? 

Today I simply want to share with you the words that Ann shares about  theses tragic events on her Dec. 15th blog post. You won't want to stop there however as she is an imaginative writer and you'll want to read more. I've read her book, "One Thousand Gifts" and couldn't put it down. Please go here: aholyexperience.com   to read her post as she shares "Where is God in the dark of this weekend?"

To read more posts about advent go to Floss' blog here.

    P.S. My blog name has changed but everything else remains the same. It's just a new title, not a new blog.

    P.S.S. I like your new blog header. :)

  4. Thank you for this link. She's a great writer because she's not afraid to say how horrible and bad things can be - like one of the psalmists, I suppose. God bless everyone who is mourning this week.
