Senselessness

I listened to the trembling voice on the other end of the phone.

I gasped.

Senselessness.  Horrifying. Murder.

My friend’s aunt murdered.  Another family torn by senselessness.

Thou shall not kill.

Why?

Beaten.

Fear.

Death.

Senselessness of it all.

Tears of sorrow mixed with tears of anger.

Questions follow.  No answers yet.

I shake my head.  The senselessness of it all.

God wants all of us to be givers of life not takers.

Words can not form immense with shock.

As a friend, all I can do is listen, share the loss, and pray.

Proverbs 20:22  Do not say ” I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the Lord, and he will deliver you. 

My prayers with my friend’s family.  May God bless you……..
