WOYWW: Mess!

It's not surprising. My desk is a mess.

But good and beauty that can still come out of this mess.

Seems like the world is also in such a mess. The terrorist attacks in Paris are just some of the ways we're in a mess. 

And yet, good and beauty can still come out of the mess we are in. There were stories of people opening their homes to strangers the night of the attacks. And in a Facebook post, survivor Isobel Bowdery shared how in the midst of the chaos, she witnessed numerous acts of heroism...

"To the man who reassured me and put his life on (the) line to try and cover my brain whilst I whimpered, to the couple whose last words of love kept me believing the good in the world, to the police who succeeded in rescuing hundreds of people, to the complete strangers who picked me up from the road and consoled me during the 45 minutes I truly believed the boy I loved was dead, to the injured man who I had mistaken for him and then on my recognition that he was not Amaury, held me and told me everything was going to be fine despite being all alone and scared himself ... you make me believe this world has the potential to be better,'' 
While on the ground during the shooting, Isobel pretended to be dead, closed her eyes and imagined the faces of her loved ones as she waited for a bullet to end her life.
"Wishing that those I love knew just how much, wishing that they knew that no matter what happened to me, to keep believing in the good in people...To not let those men win. Last night, the lives of many were forever changed and it is up to us to be better people. To live lives that the innocent victims of this tragedy dreamt about but sadly will now never be able to fulfill."

Praying for Paris and the world.

Oh yes, the world is a mess - but when we read the Word we see that this is the foretaste of the end times, and then the glory of His return!! You are so right when you say that prayer is needed, and it is powerful too.
Thank you for your art - it is so appropriate for us as Christians at this time to take our refuge in Him.

Your page is lovely and the story you related so moving, it reminds us all that the world is full of unspeakable evil as well as unbelievable love and compassion.

Such a moving post today Peggy. You are very right that out of all the evil will come a lot of good but it's such a shame there has to be the evil in the first place....and they say they are working for God? I don't think so....def not my God!

Well your journal certainly isn't a mess. Wonderful page. It would seem that their God is not a God of love but of hate - how distressing is that. x Jackie #21
