Trying to explain

this picture has nothing to do with this post, it just makes me smile

Bombings, terrorism, death, destruction, evil

We don't have cable in our house so I like to listen to the news in the car.

The bombing in Boston.

How do you explain to your children something like this?

There's no way to understand this evil, there's no explanation that makes sense.

There is evil in this world, it is a very real and true thing.

Our oldest asked about why we hear so much about the bad in the world and why there is so much of it.

There is evil, baby. We can't make sense of it and we won't be able to understand it, but it's there. There is also so much good out there, too. There is more good and more beauty then there is bad, we just have to remember that.

She then asked me why we never hear about the good in the news, I told her that we do sometimes but that even though we don't hear about it as much doesn't mean that it's not there.

We live in such uncertain times with so much pain and terror, I'm trying to teach my children to rely on and trust in the Lord.
He always is and always will be there, through the good and the bad.
He's there, holding our hands and comforting us.

Hold true to that dear friends, He is here, He's with us.
