Being a Wife and Mother brings a special perspective to your job. Anyway, be comforted in knowing Jesus loves the little children. Matthew 18:1-6 NIV At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3 And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children,B)"(B) you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.C)"(C) 4 Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.D)"(D) 5 “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.E)"(E)

The school shooting in Newtown, Conn., where 20 children and six staff members of Sandy Hook Elementary School were killed last week, is a tragic reminder of the sanctity of life. Of promising young lives cut short and the uniqueness and preciousness of every single person.

As a mother of two, I try to imagine the grief of the parents of the dead -- it must be overwhelming and all consuming. Just thinking of the tragedy leaves me with a heavy heart, tears in my eyes and the feeling that I need to lie down before I faint.

Unfathomable horror....
