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.

Monochrome Monday – Around The River Bend

This week I almost posted a plain black picture.  I am devastated by the horrific events of last night in Las Vegas.  Going from one thoughtless act of violence to another has got to end.  Some way, some how it has to stop.  The one thing that can calm me is nature and its beauty.  So I decided to go ahead and post a picture of something that might give someone a second of peace.  That might show the available beauty in the world.  My thoughts and prayers go to all those affected by this recent tragedy.  Try to see the beauty in life… it does still exist.
