Helping Grandkids Trust God's Heart

Tuesday's Grand Connection Thought
by Mary May Larmoyeux

Who would have thought that this time last week a 7.3 earthquake would hit Haiti? As we've seen and heard, the devastation is unbelievable.

I remember not understanding why horrible things happened in the world and where God fit in the catastrophes.
