on a saturday morning

showering, dressing, putting on make up

giving my darling little girl a bath

frying bacon for breakfast

cleaning, vacuuming, doing dishes

reading books

spending time with special teenagers

Dear husband gone most of the week, standing in his place caring for house and family

tying on an apron, baking a cake

making a big, healthy tossed salad

13 well-behaved, good children home with me today

hair up in a ponytail, sneakers on


watching them walk off together for a hike in the woods

chatting with two loving friends at the door

getting a son ready for a sleep over

singing hymns of praise to Jesus with my teenage daughter

hugs, kisses, smiles, laughter, teasing, listening

…….but all with a sense of deep sadness, and thinking to myself……

“there is a place in hell for self-proclaimed ‘religious’ people who destroy, kill, fill with fear, and/or harm precious innocent people who belong to the very God they say they serve”

“of all the bad men, religious bad men are the worse”  CS Lewis

  1. Praying for peace in the midst of this storm.

    “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” -John 14:27

  2. Such a sad day for the World ….I come from a tiny English island just off of the North West coast of France (I live in Alabama, USA now) and all my ancestors are French ..although we are English on the island now …and it breaks my heart that a place so close to my heart is in such sadness and such danger ….God Bless this World ….hold on to your faith as it will conquer all evil ….thanks for this lovely post Shanda XX
