Let It Be

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

I am feeling a heaviness in my heart today. Once again we have been struck with a terrible tragedy in our country. Innocent lives have been lost and people's lives have been changed forever. 

I am grieving for those lives and praying for the survivors and their families while knowing that I can't personally do much more than that. I can't find and get the perpetrator(s) off the streets so that they can't do this again. I can pray for those whose task this is. I can't heal the injured. I can't counsel the grieving, but I am thankful for those who can.

So I choose to let it be. I choose to trust that all will be taken care of and there will be answers. 



  1. Another unfathomable heartache to get over - they're coming at us faster then we can process them............
    Newtown is still fresh and now this
    Much love,

  2. Heartfelt post. I love that song.

  3. A horrible day yesterday.

    And a beautiful song to help out our hearts.


  4. It seems this world has a lot of sicko's in it. When I heard the news, I couldn't help but think, here we go again. Another one! Sad that we're getting numbed to it now. It seems to happen more and more frequently now.

  5. Love this video, Laura. I remember the first time I saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. I just learned how to post a video today, thanks to #2. Hope your knee is feeling well.

  6. Really thoughtful post...
    hugs & prayers,

  7. Great post Laura, what has happened again in our country makes me so sad and angry.
