i BELIEVE MANY PARENTS, AS i AND MY HUSBAND HAVE AN Absalom that we mourn over. And whatever we do he cannot be reached and we sorrow as David, Absalom, Absalom, my son my son, I understand David 's grief and sorrow...................

We wept with all the parents at Sandy Hook, as David wept for his son Absalom, and only God can comfort those who have lost loved ones in such a time as this. We must look to heaven from which our help comes from, for God is the God of all comfort, and He comforts those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from Him. God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, so that who ever believes in Him would not perish, but would have everlasting life. Thank God that death is not the end, because Jesus is the first fruits of those from the grave. One day we will see our loved ones again, and we will rejoice to see that day come.
