Mumbles … blasphemy

This is not the post I had planned on writing, but the day dictated what I had to say.

On an awful day like today I argue with God.  I argue why 20 innocent people doing an everyday thing had to die.  I argue why are there 26 more people in hospital beds.  Here in Iowa it was a tax free weekend for clothes shopping and people were out taking advantage of the tax break.  I don’t know if they had a tax holiday or not in Texas, but even if there was not back to school shopping going on, it was a Saturday which is always busy.  Why?

So today I am guilty of blasphemy.  I openly admit it.  I argue with God at a time like this.  I swear, I get angry, and I cry.  It is senseless violence.  It has to stop.  Until it does I will argue and cuss and question how a loving God can allow this to still happen. It makes me wonder if there even is a greater power at work?  It makes me wonder why?

My heart goes out to those affected by this tragedy in El Paso today.
