Let Hope Rise

"Let hope rise and darkness tremble...."

This week, terror has personally touched Australians with the Sydney seige, and the loss of innocent lives as a result. It was extremely worrying as I had friends and family who were in very close proximity to the situation, but thankfully safe.

And then yesterday, I heard the tragic news of the "massacre of the innocents" in Pakistan. These are worrying times, with so much hatred and unnecessary loss in the world.

I am so grateful that in such difficult times, we have faith and hope in God. I feel incredibly blessed to have all my children, their partners and my 3 grandchildren safe and well (although one of my children need your prayers if you are the praying kind).

Remember to keep your family close, spend time with them, remind them how much they are loved... you never know which day will be your last!

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by these tragic events. This post is dedicated to those people and their families. May they know peace at this time.

Your photos are awesome, especially that bit of rainbow that you captured. I know what you mean about having faith. Mine is what keeps me going with all the awful ting in the world. They will get worse, so my faith is getting stronger :)
