Thank you God

And I mean that literally!!!

No, I do not have the Halloween pictures edited yet. Will have to do later this weekend.

Today, at 9:30 am, I got a text from a friend that 10 cop cars were seen speeding toward the local high school. The same school where TWO of my kids attend. The rumor was there was a gun in the building. To say I freaked out would be an understatement. I basically came unglued. I have never been more scared in my life. I ran from my laptop to the tv to the desk computer trying to find something that would give me news coverage. I found nothing. I knew that for many years the school had implemented drills to evacuate the kids in emergency situations to OUR church in the field next to the school. I raced, in a thunderstorm, out of the house to get to the church. I left every light on in the house, doors unlocked, and windows slightly open. I was scared to death.

Luckily, the student was apprehended by a rookie teacher that tackled him and kept him down until police arrived. Three shots were shot into the ceiling, but no one was hurt. That is where the thank you God comes from.

After the events of today, I needed something to try and calm my shaky heart. I will not say that at every moment today, I remembered this quote, but I am trying to now. I went into my crafting area and painted it as a reminder. Thank you God for keeping everyone safe. Please heal this young man and his parents heart. They need you now.
