The Ripple Effect

Maybe you had a discussion like this around the dinner table last night too.

Maybe you’re getting tired of having to discuss this too.

After the shooting at the middle school in Nevada yesterday, you can’t help wonder if it will happen in a school in your hometown, maybe to the one your kids go to.

That's what I was thinking last night. So, I sat down with my kids at dinner and explained what to do if a bad guy came to their school; where to hide, and how to cover their heads.

Than we prayed for God to protect their schools, and every school from violence. If you want, you can join me before dinner or as you drop them off at school and pray for a SAFE school year.

That’s the thing about prayer it’s like throwing a pebble in a pond…the bigger the pebble, the bigger the ripple effect.

I think this also points to the need to ALWAYS tell your loved ones every time you're in contact with them "goodbye" AND "I love you!" No matter what happens in the course of our lives, we want "I love you" to be the last thing people hear from our lips. You can ask anyone who lost a family member abruptly whether or not they told the person "I love you" when they last spoke and the answers are either, "Yes, and I'm glad I did," or, "No, and I wish I had." Just in case, I choose to be in the first group.

I'm part of a Moms In Prayer group (www.momsinprayer.org) and we meet every Monday morning and pray for our kids, teachers, staff, BOE. It starts my week out with such peace for me knowing that no matter what happens, big or small, God is there to help see our children through it! I would encourage anyone interested to see if there is one in their school district! It has really helped me in praying for the school and allows me to bring even the smallest concerns for my child to a group to pray for him.
