A Rainbow When We All Needed It.

I have never been good with words or expressing my feelings, so today I will keep it short. 

Friday for lunch, my boss took us all out to for a Christmas celebration. Half way through, I checked my phone and came across the sickening news. Not many details were released at that time, but I was immediately shocked at the fact that something horrific like this could happen at such an innocent place. 

It didn't really sink in until yesterday when Cameron and I watched a news briefing online that showed the pictures and names of these sweet little children. I lost it.
But today, as all of the mommy's and daddy's were dropping their kids off at school, the most wonderful thing appeared. A rainbow to assure them that in the midst of all of this tragedy, He is with us and always will be.
Borrowed from 95SX's Facebook page.

If that's not a sign, then I don't know what is.


  1. I thought the same thing this morning as I dropped SS off to school. I couldn't think of a bigger sign.

  2. I just got chills! I heard about this on the radio this morning, too :)

  3. Great picture and message.

  4. This is terrible to admit, but when Amelia (my first-grader) woke-up with a fever, I was kind of happy to not drop her off today. I know the chances if someone coming to her school today....but it made me feel safe :-(. Such a sad story. That rainbow is amazing!!

  5. I've been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article

    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  6. This gives me chills. This story continues to break my heart for the children and teachers lost and their family and friends that are suffering the pain of losing a loved one. I'm so glad you shared the rainbow- that brought a smile to my face.

  7. Love that picture! Such truth! God still is everywhere we go! As a teacher, I love the positive that I'm hearing!

  8. I have had such a hard time with this all. It has hit me so hard, and I have found myself crying at random times watching the news and the President's address. I just can't fathom this happened, and it has really overwhelmed me. Reading about other people having these strong reactions has made me feel like it's okay to feel this way, and seeing things like this picture and a poem I saw on another blog has really helped. I hope you're doing okay, and I, with you, will keep praying for the families and those affected.
