Sandy Hook School


Twas’ 11 days before Christmas, around 9:38
when 20 beautiful children stormed through heaven’s gate.
their smiles were contagious, their laughter filled the air.
they could hardly believe all the beauty they saw there.
they were filled with such joy, they didn’t know what to say.
they remembered nothing of what had happened earlier that day.
“where are we?” asked a little girl, as quiet as a mouse.
“this is heaven.” declared a small boy. “we’re spending Christmas at God’s house.”
when what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but Jesus, their savior, the children gathered near.
He looked at them and smiled, and they smiled just the same.
then He opened His arms and He called them by name.
and in that moment was joy, that only heaven can bring
those children all flew into the arms of their King
and as they lingered in the warmth of His embrace,
one small girl turned and looked at Jesus’ face.
and as if He could read all the questions she had
He gently whispered to her, “I’ll take care of mom and dad.”
then He looked down on earth, the world far below
He saw all of the hurt, the sorrow, and woe
then He closed His eyes and He outstretched His hand,
“Let My power and presence re-enter this land!”
“may this country be delivered from the hands of fools”
“I’m taking back my nation. I’m taking back my schools!”
then He and the children stood up without a sound.
“come now my children, let me show you around.”
excitement filled the space, some skipped and some ran.
all displaying enthusiasm that only a small child can.
and i heard Him proclaim as He walked out of sight,
“in the midst of this darkness, I AM STILL THE LIGHT.”

  1. I sure wish I knew. It was the only comforting thing in all the dark, sad places of my heart this week regarding this incident. I have cried and cried and prayed and prayed. The worst part of it all, is God is telling all of His people, and has weighed on my heart as well, that it is about to get even worse, and that we are to prepare ourselves for circumstances and incidents that are even beyond this… that we are to hide ourselves in Christ..stay in Him constantly…so that we are able to bear what comes next…and VERY soon.

  2. it was so moving I cried as I read it and was really amazed that someone can think of something like that and make us believe how great is our Lord. Bless her that wrote this poem and all the family”s in the beautiful town in conn.Sorrow is not theword that comes to my mind only blessings from GOD. That we as a nation shall always have this to rmember as a place in our hearts.Keep safe and hug and kiss someone that you LOVE.

  3. Love your site, you are doing a great thing. God bless you!

  4. The poem you posted certainly captures the spirit of comfort that comes from the heart of God. I pray that somehow that spirit may become embedded within our national consciousness as a displacement to our obsession with guns and violence.
    Thanks for your entry,

  5. Wonderful poem! I know what awaits on the other side and you could not have said it better. What is hard for the families is missing their loved ones now, but the time here passes so quickly, and this too shall pass. The gunman must be forgiven and his everlasting soul prayed for. Everyone can take comfort that those babies are in the best possible place and the hardest part for them is over… we still must endure our turns to crossover! Knowing what awaits on the other side gives me comfort and erases all fear. I send my Love, God Bless.
