We may never have all the answers.

My heart is aching.  I know the heart of our God is aching.  I also believe the children are playing joyfully in His presence – laughing, dancing, and singing.  I’m with most of you though, I still can’t help but wonder WHY?!  My heart is broken today.

I posted the following on Facebook a little while ago…

As a mom today is just too painful to think of anything other than the pain the families in CT are experiencing. We’ll continue to blog and post deals, but please understand that using silly words today like “hot! coupon! deal!” just makes my stomach turn. All I want to do is hold my kids and pray.

But after talking with Mr. Frugal we’ve decided to take the rest of the day off. We will be shutting down here at TFF for the rest of today out of respect for the children’s lives that were lost and for the mourning families. There just isn’t anything worth our time more than prayer and loving on our own children.

I don’t know why.  We may never know why.  However let this be a reminder that we don’t know when we’ll take our last breath.  We have a loving Savior who waits with outstretched arms.  He has a gift for you.

    You couldn’t have said it any better. Please take this time to enjoy your children and thank you for all you do for you!

    Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Frugal – wisdom to cease. Just cried my way thru a prayer service our dear church had – and am spent. Dear Lord – we know you are caring for the families whose children are with you — may they too learn to dance and sing on this earth again – and come to know you — and dance with their loved ones and you in heaven. Pleae Lord help our country to return to you. Amen.

    My heart also breaks for these dear families and their community. I pray God will be dear and near to them in a way they have never known. I also pray that thru this tragedy that lost souls will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. As you said we none know what tomorrow holds or when our last breath may be. Thank you for all you do.

    This is the worst ever. Too many young and innocent lives lost for no reason. The nation mournes all these babies. :(
