The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, not necessarily in that order...

It's been a heartbreaking week.   

Quick run down of the bad and the ugly:
Last Friday at a middle school here in North Alabama, a young boy shot and killed another young boy.   On Tuesday, a 12 year old middle student at another school took his own life by hanging himself (rumors include he was distraught over a girl, and his step father grounded him for bad grades, and that it was an accident, he was trying to pull a prank on his younger sister, and he somehow accidently followed through.  His younger sister was indeed the one who found him.)    Yesterday, I found out my sister-in-law has emphysema.   Today, at a different university, a faculty member shot and killed three other faculty members, woundered three other people, two of them critically; one is stable tonight.

The good news is that God is in control.   I don't have a clue why all this is going on right here in the heart of Dixie, but if you are a praying sort, there are many hurting people who could use your prayers.

  1. wow, that is a lot going on. the enemy is certainly upset about something that is going on "right" down there; God's kingdom is being advanced somewhere/somehow and the enemy doesn't like it. Will keep your part of the country in my prayers

    but you are right, God is in control. And none of this caught him by surprise

  2. Oh Jesus, comfort these families.

    Recluse, what's next after a diagnosis like this? Treatment?

  3. Yes, I've seen a lot of this in the news and am praying for this hurting country. When the enemy attacks, God will raise up a standard against him for His people. All we can do is pray that the Lord will use this to turn others toward Him! Linda
