without words

The events of the past week have left me without words. I am heartbroken, I am angry, I am confused, I am uneasy. I fight the tears as I drive to work, I become nervous when anything seems out of the norm, I am obsessive about locking my doors, I find sadness in the constant police presence in my community. I find the news, social media, and some conversations overwhelming. I want to turn back time and wish this never happened. I want my community to feel safe again.

This world is a fallen, broken, place. I cannot turn back time, I cannot change things out of my power and control. I can pray that justice is served. I can pray that the person who has turned this community upside down will be caught. In the end he will have to answer for his actions. May it be here on earth or in hell, he will be held responsible.

I stumbled across this video this morning. It is a beautiful reminder that God is always near.
