Love when Hurting

Some days pull on a person’s heart.

Two unexpected deaths. Passing emergency vehicles on the way home and receiving an update on my phone about an active shooter.

There is always bad stuff in life. Some days it is more in your face.

Tonight I am choosing to focus on love. The love that the two people shared in their lifetimes and the lives that they impacted. The love of the helpers in the shooter situation that are helping, comforting, and protecting those involved. I choose to focus on love. God is love. And he is present, even when we can’t see him well. He isn’t hiding. And he isn’t causing these things. He is just waiting for us to turn to him to be strong in his love.
