God is our refuge and strength,

A very present help in trouble.

Therefore we will not fear,

Even though the earth be removed,

And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

Though its waters roar and be troubled,

Though the mountains shake with its swelling. Selah

Psalm 46:1-2

I can’t.

I just.



I have no words.

No thoughts.

Barely feelings.


It’s not just

loss of life.

It’s loss

of innocence.

Loss of …


Words just fail.

Heart aches

head hangs


I can




All I can

ask of God



hold their hands.

Hold their hearts.

Hold them close.


Lord Jesus

help us.
