Con te partiro

When I think about my weekend I am happy to report that nothing major happened, it was a relaxing one, where I got to stay home, work on my amigurumi project and just be happy.

But in this time of day, just being here and having a quiet life is a big blessing and probably better than most people have.

Because nowadays in our world, there's so much to be sad about, as there are so many bad news (wars, killings, poverty, etc.) and unfortunately the amount of bad news is usually higher than the good news.

I am still in shock and deeply sadden by the devastating news of the massacre in Norway, where so many young people lost their lives.

Terrible crimes like these are an inexplicable part of us humans. In my heart and soul, I find it very hard to believe that a monster like that can be made in the same image as God and should be call "our brother".

So, when I think of all the people that lost their lives, their families and friends going through their loss and trying to accept their departure in such a terrible way, makes my heart aches.

I try to reflect on the way my life is and all I can do is ask myself:

Am I ready to die, either of natural causes or any other way?

I'll like to think that I am.

Because I have a good life, I don't have debts with anybody (morally or even financially), I don't harm people and if I ever judge or offend others, well, that's something we all need to work on at some point...

I feel I am very close to God and if he is ready to call me to his side, all I hope for is a good way to go, in peace and with my heart full of love.

But, if God doesn't call us and instead we get rushed to meet him; by the hands of somebody that just wants to steal our wallet, or perhaps just wants to kill a bunch of people and we just happened to be in the crowd.

I just hope and pray for Him to still be waiting for us with open arms and to fill the hearts of our love ones with peace and strength in such times of sorrow.

I like to think that when people die in a terrible way, angels will come and sing for them. And to me an angel must sound a lot like the amazing Italian Singer Andrea Bocelli.

So in honor of all the Norwegians that lost their life this past weekend, their families and loved ones that are going to miss them, as well as all other people around the world, dying in vain and for the wrong reasons, I dedicate this song to them.

God Bless us all, today and always! Happy Monday.

Gosh, what a post; So much wisdom and gratitude and deep thoughts - you might as well have been the vicar in the church holding the speach, because it would /will bring so much comfort to those relatives left behind..!
Personally I believe, that we are all born in the image of God, and all have a bit of God in us (called the spirit). But unfortunately the "occult" dark things have come into the world as well, and try to recrute people, I believe. So if someone gets totally taken over by those things, that must be when the person acts according to that persuation, and no longer listens to the bit of God inside, telling what is right and wrong/harmful.
So I believe we can each give life and power to what is right and make a stance against degeneration, just like you did in your beautiful post. Thank God for people like you :-))
