I'm glad that you did this Jen-what a tragedy-I've been praying for them all morning....How wonderful though that so many in his Christian family can hold them in prayer-that's what it's like to belong to the family of God!

I thought the same thing! Christians around the world are lifting this family up in prayer! That's pretty amazing!

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
