    I think it’s great that you’ve really taken a moment for the sandy hook victims. It is truly tragic what happened.

    Amy – Thank you for your sensitivity to the tragic events that took place at Sandy Hook. I, too, thought what you wrote was beautifully said.

    I’m linking up a gluten free and refined sugar free “World’s Best Fruitcake Ever”.

    Take care- Jen

    I think everyone has hard time grappling with these vents. Part of our being screams out “What is happening to our world?! ” And while violent media, gun access and mental issues surface and are possible contributors..ultimately it comes down to how we treat one another. Take an extra minute to try and touch either someone you know or a stranger in a kind way..a smile, words of encouragement, a hug…it can look different but let that other person know they matter. Burying your head in the sand with people who make you uncomfortable while understandable can also push those people further down….
    My heart is with the families who mourn. Thanks Amy.

    Thank you for your Day of Remembrance yesterday, and for taking a moment to pray for the families and spirits of everyone who lost their lives in such a devastating, disgusting tragedy. As a parent, I look at my young ones and dream for and with them. I wonder how they’ll be when they are 5, 10, teenagers, can drive a car, fall in love, are parents themselves . . . . My heart goes out and my tears are shed for those children who were unjustly frightened in their last moments in this world, and to the families who are mourning the loss of their dreamers. Thanks again for sharing.

    This week’s post: Baked Maple Custard Mini Pumpkins. The recipe worked well with almond milk and is naturally gluten-free.

    Thanks Amy for hosting, to all for linking, and for a Day of Remembrance to help us pause and pray together.

    Hi Amy,
    Thank you for sharing these sentiments. Words cannot express my sadness over the shootings. Not only for the lives lost, but for the perpetrator who experienced such pain that he couldn’t imagine a more peaceful resolution. With compassion, I’m praying for peace and grace to touch the lives of all involved. Namaste, Marya

    Beautiful spoken. I too am so numb from all the pain that the Sandy Hook families and community are experiencing. I wonder why it takes such a horrific tragedy for change to happen. I wrote about this on my own website as well.

    Thanks for keeping the link up. Wonderful recipes as well. Sometimes it is like Pinterest over here. You get sucked into reading everyone’s recipes! Happy Holidays.

    thanks, amy, for your heart to keep important things first! tragedies such as the murders @ sandy hook school SHOULD compel us to recommit our hearts and lives to loving with all that we have and to serving the One Who Holds us in His hand. thanks for your blessings…may God bless you and your loved ones, too <3

    Thank you for the day of remembrance. It’s time are country started looking at the problems that many families are dealing with when their child has mental health issues. We just had another scare here in Arizona, but fortunately, the plan was thwarted.

    I’ve found it somewhat difficult to move on as well, so chose to do so with a different form of remembrance. For each of the 28 people who died, I am performing an act of kindness. With each act, I am giving a card explaining in whose name I’m doing a kindness and why.

    If you wish to download a copy of the card or learn more about it, please go to http://acts17verse28.blogspot.com/2012/12/can-sense-be-made-of-senseless.html or, if you want a tiny url, to http://tinyurl.com/d3syye7.

    Thank you, and may God bless you this Christmas and always!

    Although maximum site owners are familiar with these concepts, but they may lack
    the expertise to do it the correctly. In addition, many of the words used started to take on slightly different
    meanings, depending on the context in which they are used.
