‘Tis the Season   Leave a comment

I work at a school district.  I am in the district office of a high school district.  I have been overwhelmed with emotion at the news from Newtown, CT.  Everyone in the office was quiet and weepy eyed as the news unfolded on that Friday.  We also lost two of our high school students this month.  One to an inoperable brain tumor, and the other killed herself.

I have more posts to write.  I have things swirling around in my head that I’d like to share.  But this month has been a hard one, and I find I don’t have the emotional strength to write.

There may be evil and violence and sadness and loss.  Yes, we have that and more in the world.  But this thing I know, and this thing I am sure of:

My hope is built on nothing less, than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.  I dare not trust the sweetest frame, but wholly lean on Jesus’ name.  On Christ the solid rock I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.

My prayer is for you to have all the peace and comfort you can scrape together during this holiday season.  Peace.
