Prayers… and Comfort in a Cup

Sandy Hook Candlelight


My emotions are in a knot.

Sometimes words cannot adequately express what my heart longs to say.

I’m praying for you Newtown, Connecticut.

The remainder of this post will be silent in respect to the loss of beautiful lives.  May hurting hearts be comforted…


For life’s little hurts, comfort can sometimes come in a cup…
