Faith and Tragedy
I’ve seen several people ask God “why” in response to the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. The same question was asked when my sister-in-law passed away just after Thanksgiving, leaving behind two young children. And while I do believe in a God of miracles, my son still reacts to certain foods.
I don’t have all the answers. But I do have faith that God’s justice will be meted out in time, and that His mercy can help us through these trials. I do believe that “all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good” (D&C 122:7) but man, it stinks to go through it at the time. All we can do is pray and lift one another.
We have a busy Christmas planned, so probably no more recipes for the year. I’ll be back in January with more First Try Fridays. Everyone have a safe and happy holiday season!
