|I took this photo in Boston last|
November on a shopping trip.
I live roughly an hour north of Boston. A beloved family member of mine lives in the city. My husband continues to receive bi-monthly infusions in Boston for IBD, and Boston was also where I received excellent treatment for OCD. Essentially, we are in and out of Boston literally all of the time. Thankfully, my relative is safe. He happened to be working at home today, and not in the heart of the city, where he would usually be found on a Monday afternoon. Talk about Godly intervention.
This is very surreal. Usually it seems like these things happen in "some other city." Today, sadly, Boston was that "some other city" and my heart is heavy for all of those who lost loved ones, and for those victims who were injured (some very seriously, including lost limbs and severe burns, etc.). God have mercy on us all.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV
