light shines in the darkness

I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around what happened yesterday in Boston. 

One thing that struck me, though, was the heroism shown even in those first moments after the explosions. I'm fairly sure my first instict would be to run away, but yet there were so many brave men and women who headed immediately into the chaos, thinking only of getting to those in need.  Many more offered their help over the next several hours and continue today.  Incredible stories of heroism and kindness rising out of such a senseless act of tragedy. 

I offer a heart felt THANK YOU to the heros of the day (police, national guard, bystanders, volunteers, medical personnel, etc.) for their acts of kindness and bravery. 

The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it - John 1:5 (NLT) 


  1. Love that verse!! You are so right...light shines brightly in the darkness and whoever did this cannot extinguish that. Great post.

  2. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone that was affected

  3. There is always redemption in the face of such tragedy. It's good to be reminded of that.

  4. It's a dreadful thing that someone should do this :(. I hope all your friends who ran are safe
