I got a late start today, and didn't get to do my FFF post until after I heard the news about an elementary school in Newtown, CT.
Reports say a shooter killed his mother and her entire kindergarten class.
Before he went to the school, he killed his dad at home.
This has really affected me, and I thought, "After hearing that, I can't even remember last week, let alone 5 favorites."
But there are at least 5 things I know and build my hope on:
1. God is still on His throne.
2. God is love.
3. God is righteous.
4. He brings good out of tragedy.
5. He alone can comfort.
I believe those innocent little children are sitting on His lap and getting loved on right now.
Please join with me in prayer for those families who have experienced such loss.
UPDATE: 28 are dead from this massacre: 20 children, 6 adults, the mother of the shooter, and the shooter.
He did not kill his dad; it was his mother he killed at home. He then drove to the school and opened fire in two classrooms.
Sorry for the misinformation - I was going by news reports at the time.
