A Modern Lament: A Reason Can’t Wipe Away Tears

I have lots and lots of questions.

  1. We lost our beautiful 22 year daughter. She was a senior in College Station,Texas at Texas A&M University. She was weeks from graduating with a medical degree, then onto Medical School. We found out the day she passed her boyfriend was brutally beating her. Our case went to the district attorney and was ruled from murder to suicide. His millionaire parents bought his way out of trouble. We are so very broken, we have no family support. It is awlful.

    1. What a horrible additional burden for your heart to bear! I am so, so sorry.

      Praying that the Lord meets you where you are and that you hear Him whisper, “Courage, My child” to your broken heart. May His grace, mercy and love fill your soul and give you strength to hold onto hope, even now. ❤
