Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Tragedy Unfolding

There was a murder in our neighborhood.  It happened behind the high school that Anna attends.
The young man murdered, was an ROTC student that Anna knew well.

Sadly, we found out that the murderers were also students. One of them, was in ROTC and Anna knew him well, the other she didn't know well.

We have all been very saddened by this news.

Honestly, my gut instinct is to rip her from the school and bring her home.
I don't know if that is a wise idea.
At least not yet.

This is the SECOND time a child has been murdered by "friends" at the same school, in 2 years.

Something is VERY WRONG.

We feel safe in Wylie, and always have, yet such henious crimes have happened so close by!

The thing that disturbs me so much about this one is that the kids knew each other well.
It was PRE MEDITATED and these young men took this young man's life by strangling the life from him and then taping a sock in his mouth and cover his nose to make sure he was dead. :(

How can something like that be done so callously??  I just don't get it. :(

I met one of the young men. He seemed like a nice, normal kid. He helped Anna with her algebra at the beginning of the year and she borrowed his cell phone to call home after a foot ball game that they worked chains on.

I am so creeped out!

Please pray for our sweetie girl.  She is very sad for her friend that lost his life, and very confused about the ones who committed the crime.

She is doing well, considering the situation. 

I just hate sin.

Oh gosh, that is awful! :( It is hard enough to comprehend why humans hurt one another- but having someone you know, a CHILD at that, kill another child in a place that is supposed to be safe- that has got to mess with the mind :(

My prayers are with you.
