Peace, Be Still

Words can't describe it.  The events today  in Connecticut are inexpressible horror.  Children who just yesterday were writing letters to Santa, playing with dolls, or riding their bike down the street are now dead in a senseless act of violence.  There is nothing I can say or do to ease the heartache of 28 families in a small town.  It's times like this when I need the "peace that passeth understanding" of the gospel that comes from Christ, who was able to say to the wind and the waves: "Peace, Be Still."  He cannot bring back those innocent Angels who perished today, but He is able to give us peace when we are surrounded by a world that is frightening in its horribleness, as it was today.  Take time to be "still, still, still" today.  Hug your loved ones!

"Still, Still, Still" by Mary Chapin Carpenter
