I have the CNN app on my phone and I've been really contemplating deleting it lately because, seriously, I can't take much more bad news texted to me randomly throughout the day.  The tragedy in Boston has been heartbreaking and the subsequent manhunt completely disturbing.  This week alone, our world has suffered so much pain.  From earthquakes, to bombings, to major explosions--peoples' lives have been completely turned around.  My heart is heavy, my prayers are many and my longing for heaven has only been compounded.  

I was talking to Mark about the state of our world and how scary it all is and he told me something that I will never forget.  He said, "You know, Steph, we are only safe in Jesus."  It's so true.  This world is a frightening place and we may never feel comfortable or safe in it.  In fact, we aren't supposed to be comfortable here.  This isn't our home.  We weren't made for here.  It's so reassuring to know that.  To hold it in our hearts and rest assured that He's coming back to take us HOME!
