Tragic Prayer

Counting blessings and acknowledging grace is easy on a day like today. Tragedy has a way of hitting you upside the head with a 2 x 4 to remind you that your petty little problems mean nothing when someone has lost a loved one. There was a tragic shooting about a mile away from my workplace today. A Sheriff deputy and a civilian were shot and killed. We witnessed the chaos in the aftermath and it continues even now as the gunman is still barricaded in his home.

With a heavy heart I will just offer thanks for the abundance of grace in my life. I also continue to pray for the victims and their families... and all those to protect our safety and risk their lives to save mine. God bless them all.
