Where Were You God?

I have struggled for days with whether to post this or not.

I don’t want to jump into the heartache, and as my mom says, “Sometimes there are no words to express our sorrow.”

But this vision will not leave me, and I think the Lord wants me to share it.

Before I could capture it, the thought flew from my heart to my head, “Where were you God?”

I wanted to see God leading those precious children out the door to safety, covering them in the shadow of His wings.

And He did not do what I expected Him to do.

But in answer to the question, “Where were you, God,” He gave me a picture in my mind of Jesus leading those little kindergarteners hand in hand, two at a time, one on each side of Him, up to heaven.

He was there.  And He brought them home.

Not quite the picture I have in my mind’s eye, but I’ve always loved this one.

Pray for Newtown.
