Our world has been shaken. Once more, we hear reports of terrible devastation and hurt. I cannot imagine the pain the folks in Connecticut are going through. I can only pray. Pray for God’s comfort and mercy to immerse these folks in relief from a a grief that won’t stop.
At times in my life when I wasn’t quite sure what to do, all I could do was the next thing. Sometimes, I’d wake up in pain that would just not go away, maybe the next thing to do were the dishes in the sink, or clearing off my table, or calling a friend.
My prayer for these folks is that they can find the strength to do the next thing.
