When Tears are not Enough


A fire in Halifax, Nova Scotia, on Tuesday, killed seven children ranging in age from four months to fourteen years. Their father is in life threatening condition and the mother is remarkably unharmed…physically.

Can anyone even fathom the devastation this mother is dealing with?

Tears are not enough to wash away the enormity of this woman’s suffering in the moment and in years to come…her own tears and those of all who mourn with her.

Some will ask where is God in all this.

Along with the rest of us…Jesus wept. (John 11:35)

  1. The enormous pain that this poor woman is facing is unimaginable. How will she ever survive the loss of her total family ! Her husband is clinging to life and if he survives has a long and painful recovery. It’s too much for one person to endure. Hopefully she has her faith to help her through.
