Please pray for the Bosma family...

The senseless cruelty of hate
Rocks and shocks the rudiments
Of hope and love, mercy and faith
It scars and mars love’s evidence
But still we know that our God reigns
He comforts those who mourn and weep
We trust, for we cannot explain
The demons of hate’s darkened deep

And while we long to justify
Our anger as we taste its gall
We lift our tears to God on high
For He alone can see it all
Someday, beyond this sin-cursed realm
Our unknowns will be heaven-clear
We trust the Master at the helm
For He beholds and counts each tear

Heart-felt prayers and tears are flowing for the Bosma family and friends.


  1. I'm so sorry, Janet. I understand this happened very close to where you live and maybe you even know the family personally?..
    The news has been exceptionally bad lately..

  2. Thank-you Sasha. Yes the news is filled with tragedy lately! We do not know them personally but know people who do. This family is part of a very close-knit church family. Tragedy binds hearts of compassion, doesn't it?


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
