Making sense of things

I suppose the post title can be taken two ways. Things around the house are finally closer to being together. We only have a couple of rooms (plus the garage) to fine tune and then I won't be too embarrassed should someone want to come inside. We've lined up another church to visit this weekend.... I am in anticipation of that. And I received some info on local homeschool support groups in the mail today. I am VERY glad to have that.

But in a more sobering vein, I am dealing with the news that a 16-year-old girl from our church back in Omaha was murdered 2 days ago. How does one make sense of that?? It happened during the day, in her home... the media (if we can believe what we read) says there is a suspect, but police aren't saying whether he has been questioned or not. Apparently he was released from jail the day it happened.

Pray for the Neal family. Sarah was their only daughter and the baby of the family.

Oh, Karen, I am so sorry. Nothing makes sense in a situation like this. I will be praying for her family, and for you.

I pray for the LORDS strength with that family and with yours in finding the right church family to fit into. I know the importance of that in this world. I am here via Micheles comment game and just wanted to comment on your very lovely blog.

cheers

How terribly sad, and utterly shocking. The Neal family will have our prayers. I am glad to hear of the support you're beginning to find for homeschooling!

Wow, that is shocking news. I hope they find who did it... and I will pray for the family.

I see your a military wife :) I, too, was a military wife (for 10ish years) until last month....
