Tonight I am sharing with you a special card I made to send to Sandy Hook Elementary School.
This past Sunday our Pastor had us sing "I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day". He based his sermon on this special song and related it back to the sad events in Connecticut. I will never forget that sermon, as there were many, many tears throughout the congregation. After the sermon was over he had us again sing the beautiful carol. Only this time - I think we all sung with more meaning and heavy hearts.
And in despair I bowed my head:
There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men."
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, no doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With Peach on Earth, Good Will to Men."
