A young adult who went to school with my older children committed suicide on Friday. She lived just a mile away.
Saturday morning, 8 people were murdered in a town I visit often, just an hour from my house. No clues, no suspects.....
Sunday morning, another child the same age as my older children, found her mother dead in the bed. I graduated from high school with her mother. She lives less than 5 miles from my home.
Monday morning, I learned of the death of a Chinese adoptee. Her mother has been arrested. Every adoptive child is dear to my heart. I prayed for her mother. Many people prayed for her mother.
I am reminded today that we live in a fallen world, where there is so much sin, and so much heart ache.
Does our light shine brightly? Or is it hidden under a bushel?
