My heart is breaking ...

 ... for the families of Uvalde, just as it did so recently for the families of Buffalo. And as it has for all the mass shootings we have suffered.

I am praying for everyone in their grief and loss. I also pray for our politicians to get it together, stop their infighting, and implement wise measures from both sides. 

I was reminded this morning that David did not despair, despite all of the setbacks in his eventful life (some self-inflicted to be sure). We too must not despair, but must hope in the Lord and do our utmost, whether it be prayer or whatever actions we can take.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
