It did happen. I went to watch and in the end, I couldn't. I could only hear the handcuffs and the shuffling feet because I dropped my gaze and studied the tile floor and the deteriorating nail polish on my toes.
However, 24 hours later, I learned that the defendant's kids were in good care and would have the best care available. That news lifted my heart. Please do not think more of me than you should. I feel nothing for the mother of these children. I am still too broken; I just don't want there to be anymore victims. Neither do you. Your prayers make me so thankful and hopeful that my heart will not harden. We serve a good and loving God. Whatever path we walk going forward, we are not abandoned - even in those moments when our hearts search for Taylor in a world that wasn't ready to let her go.
We are still fighting to find a purpose. I guess the good today is - your faithful prayers were again answered as those kids are in good hands and - we are still fighting.
" 'Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,' says the Lord, who has compassion on you." Isaiah 54:10
Love you baby girl.
