Newtown

Yesterday was a tough day.  I watched with countless others the aftermath of a gunman's assault on an elementary school in the town of Newtown, Connecticut.  This beautiful quiet community and its wonderful people were home to me and my family not long ago.  My heart and prayers go out to them and their loved ones.

Yesterday I listen and read as people embraced this senseless tragedy.  I watched as people clung to the hope of their faith, but still others that allowed this circumstances to destroy hope, and lay waste to their faith in anything good in our world.  These last 24 hours I have personally struggled with the evils of today and thoughts of the enemy and his foothold on the lives and hearts of so many.  It is easy to lose hope in a lost world drifting farther and farther away from God.

Romans 6:18-19 says, "so that by two unchangeable things in which it is impossible for God to lie, we who have taken refuge would have strong encouragement to take hold of the hope set before us.  This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, a hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil,".  Today I take refuge in my Lord.  My hope is not in what I see or feel, but on the promises and presence of the Lord Jesus Christ.  He is still Lord and still on the throne.  The tragedies of our days do not minimize the presences of God, they only serve to further illustrate our need, and the hope that exist only with The Savior.

My hope is built on nothing less but Jesus blood and righteousness!

Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get
guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress
on a variety of websites for about a year and am worried
about switching to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about
blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

I have been surfing on-line more than 3 hours as of late, but I never discovered any
fascinating article like yours. It is pretty value enough for me.

Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the web
can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
