I just can’t write about food or weight loss today. My heart is heavy with the dark things happening in this world. I have read a few of the accounts of things going on in Iraq and Syria recently, and I am sickened with grief.
Not to worry – I will spare you any of my own personal political views. You guys know that this space was NOT created to spout off my own personal politics.
But there are things happening to men, women and CHILDREN that are too gruesome to describe (just google it, if you want to know more). As a parent…and a HUMAN BEING, this just sickens me.
There are a people who are destroying and killing based on some very deep-rooted beliefs. These beliefs are so far removed from everything most of us have been taught about love, compassion and decency. We cannot even comprehend a belief system that would result in these types of crimes against the most precious innocent lives.
So I cannot write about food. Not today.
My plea to you is this: If you are a praying person, please pause from whatever it is that you are doing right now and join me in prayer for our world.
- Pray for both USA and world leadership for wisdom and discernment
- Pray for safety and security of the refugees who are fleeing
- Pray for a stop to the violence
- Pray for the families who have already lost loved ones and the trauma of having to witness the unthinkable
I am sorry to be so heavy hearted today, y’all. I don’t do this very often, and I will be back to writing about food and health tomorrow. But every once in a while the dark realities of this world shake me to my core. Today is one of those days.
Are you a praying person? What shakes you to your core?
