People are Crazy

I logged onto our local paper's website yesterday afternoon to get an email address to send a community announcement and was stunned to see breaking news that moments before, a gunman had opened fire at a school board meeting and someone was dead.

I'm watching the Today show right now and it's bizarre to see the tape of the incident. It's truly a miracle that none of the board members were shot as the cRaZy opened fire. I have tremendous respect for our superintendent (he was our son's high school principal). I'm simply appalled that it has become commonplace to see this kind of headline in the news. It's surreal for it to happen to people I know, right where I live.

I'm thankful that there's always good news. So I just clicked off the TV and turned my mind to this:

"If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there Your Hand will guide me,
Your right hand will hold me fast."
Psalm 139: 9,10

People are cRaZy but God is good.

I need to follow your example more often. I am literally filled with peace when I read that scripture as opposed to anxious and stressed when I read/see the news.

I just saw that, too!!! And...some are so crazy.

Enjoyed popping over for a first visit though. Have a blessed day!

Wow. That is amazingly scary.

I saw that on the new. Very disturbing, however I was very pleased to hear one of the members of the school board they interviewed say that it was defiantly God who protected him from being shot.

You are so right, there are so many disturbed people and we all need to be praying that the Love of Christ will come and heal this world!

Blessings for a wonderful Christmas (with no crazy people!)
