France needs our prayers. . . . . . . .

This evening, after watching the beautiful sunset over the 
Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, the news arrived 
as to the horrific happening in Paris.

I was here in Paris just last month - watching another sunset over the
 River Seine - loving being back in what is probably the most beautiful
 city in the world.There are really no words to explain how I feel right now.
I do know though that something has to be done to right 
this terrible wrong against the young, and the innocent, whose lives
 have been stolen from them tonight.
Our beautiful world has become a wicked and dangerous place.


  1. Mary---I feel your sadness and desire for peace even though I've never been to France. I try to acknowledge the good in people even when we are overwhelmed with evil monsters such as those who terrorize and murder innocents... but I just can't in this feels hopeless. I pray for the injured and the families and friends of those we have lost or have been wounded. And this beautiful country. Will it ever get better?

    Sending you extra love as I know you are hurting in a way that is so much more personal.

  2. Mary, I can only agree with you, I am so angry that the innocent people of this lovely City have been targeted again. As you know, France has always been a special place for us, especially Paris, Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been injured, or the families of the dead, but also with the people of France itself. They did not deserve this atrocity.

  3. What a difficult and different world it is today when innocent people going about their daily lives can have it all taken away from them in a matter of seconds. I was very relieved to learn that my eldest son and his family, living in Paris, were safe.

    1. I'm so relieved to hear that good news of your family being safe and unharmed Rosemary.
      My heart is heavy this morning knowing how many innocent people have been killed, and of course the terrible injuries many others are now battling. We may ask "why do these things happen" but, like anyone with any sense, we know! Something must change in this world, and soon.
      Mary -

  4. Good will always triumph over evil. Those religious zealots better run. My daughters and I traveled through Europe after 9/11; we weren't going to let the terrorists win. I don't pretend I wasn't looking over my shoulders. I am worried for all those poor refugees now that this has happened and winter is coming. Hope all will remember not to forget them.

  5. Mary, like you, my heart is broken. I've not been able to move my mind away from the city that is and always will be a part of my heart and being. Your words are most eloquent.

  6. Such senseless tragedy. Prayers for the people of France.

  7. It shakes us all and makes us feel that tiny bit less secure wherever we are. It is unthinkable and yet it happened. Something needs to be done and there are people who should be working very hard right now to know what that something is and get started doing it !!

  8. May love permeate everyones hearts and heal the hatred in the world. It is a sad time.

  9. So sad for what is happening in one of my favorite cities. My heart is broken for the lives lost in such a senseless manner. How can we ever combat this evil? I pray for the wisdom of our leaders to put aside petty politics and try to work together for a solution.

  10. Such terrible events. And Syria burns. The civilised world does not seem to realise that these terrorists want to destroy our way of life and kill us. We also need more Muslims of good heart, and who are not amongst those still with a medieval mindset, to speak out and take action.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
