Newtown Connecticut Memorial~

My husband & I like everyone else is hurting, hurting for all of the beautiful little angels that have gone to Our Lord too soon and for the brave women that gave their lives protecting them.

We want to help in some way but since we live no where near Newtown  CT. we thought the only way for us to help is by praying & remembering, so this is our little memorial that we built together in honor of them~
 I went out first thing this morning and bought these crosses from the Dollar Tree, we wanted angels but I was not able to find any~
 I had a vision in my head, so I had my husband looking for star lights at every big box store & he was not able to find any, last night after mass I went shopping & I found snow flake lights, they are not stars but they look enough like them so I bought them. I wanted each star to represent each person that passed, the string had 30 stars I told my husband we could maybe remove them or make them darker & he suggested that we leave them & they can represent FAITH~HOPE & LOVE~ I loved that idea~
 Here we are trying to make everything fit & look nice~
 My husband has beautiful printing so he printed all 27 names on the crosses I bought this morning we then glued them on to this bead board really I helped I just can not take pictures of myself & glue at the same time~

This is what it looks like once the sun went down, it is not what I had pictured in my mind but I think this is just so beautiful &  now the people of Newtown CT. know how much we are thinking of them and praying for them. When you see this please send up a prayer for all of these wonderful amazing lives that are in heaven now~

If you feel inclined please pass this post on to everyone you know, it is not to increase my following, but so that those hurting will receive the prayers we are asking you to pray when you read this post~
PS~I know this is not my normal post, but I can't seem to put the words together with my feelings & this is the best I am able to do.
