Praying and Guarding

Our hearts are aching for the families that have lost their sweet loved ones in Connecticut.
As a mom I can't think about the events without crying.
Crying for the lives the lost.
Crying for the parents who lost their babies.
Crying for the children whose innocence was taken from them.
And then my mind races to my own babies.
And I cry because this is the world that they are growing up in.
A dark one.
Full of evil.
And all I can do is pray the Lord's protection over them.
This article from Sally Clarkson is beautifully put
 about guarding and protecting our children's innocence.
I strongly urge you mother's/father's/grandparents to read it.
John 16:33
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.
In this world, you will have trouble.
But take heart! I have overcome the world."


  1. Praying tonight for the families of those lost. I cannot even begin to wrap my brain around this.

  2. After I heard about the shooting yesterday, I wanted to hold my baby and never let go. I can't believe someone would be so sick to take a life, let alone that of a child. It's just so sad.

  3. I loved the article Ashley. Thank you!!! I have not watched TV in 3 years. Not even the news once!!! Nor have my Children EVER!!! Liteally. I didn't even k iw of the tragedy until a day after it happened because I was on the phone with a friend. I also do t have a Facebook account! I not o ly shield my children but myself..I am far too sensitive and k owing the details of Sonething like this would make me sick to my stomach for months, nightmares:( I will pray for those lost and their families but have no desire to know any of the details. Thank you for the lively article on protecting little hearts.

  4. Ashley, thanks for sharing that Sally Clarkson article. That woman is so wise and I love reading what she has to say. Purity for our children is so, so important.
    I have been thinking about and praying for those precious little babies (and their families) non stop since Friday. So, so horrible.
