When Words Will Not Suffice

To the children of Sandy Hook who were lost, to those left behind on this Earth to mourn them, and to all of us who struggle to cope with the pain and suffering that abound in this world.

What a season of pain it has been for too many this year.  This simple song means so much to me - I chose it as one of the songs we sang at my mom's memorial service.  It takes on a special meaning when I think of those innocent little ones, so much like my own.  And also of my daughters' friend from skating, who just passed away yesterday after being involved in a horrible car accident.

“Now cracks a noble heart. Good-night, sweet prince;
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest. ”
William Shakespeare, Hamlet

I was really struggling to come up with a comment for this post yesterday. Then I just reread your title and it sums it up so perfectly. There just are no words for the pain, how grateful I am for a Lord and Savior who loves us and comforts us.
