I don’t know about you, but I think this past weekend was just completely horrible. I am still in shock. I wanted to make a blog post about Christina Grimmie.. Then Sunday happened and wow, all these innocent lives taken. I have friends who were mad at God. They ask, “Why would God let all these horrible things happen…” My honest answer is, “…I don’t know..” I don’t, we won’t.. It’s all part of God’s plan. What his plan is for everyone is different.
I like to think he put Christina on this planet to let us listen to her amazing voice. God used her to get the word out about God. While we all try to gasp the fact that she is no longer with us. She posted this a few months ago.. She is right, we can’t lose our faith or turn on back on God, even if horrible things happen.
While, I’ve never met her (I’ve always wanted to, never had a concert close to me) I’ve always been cheering for her on the sidelines. When I heard the news, like anyone I didn’t want to believe it. You know how the internet likes to play tricks on you. Then, when we all found out it was true. Speechless, completely speechless. I knew she would be perfect for Music Monday. She was an amazing person person inside and out. She had so much love for her friends, family and fans. She was someone I always looked up to, she was always so happy, she was motivation to so many, inspiring, so inspiring!
Christina wrote a song, “I Bet You Don’t Curse God“
Here are two YouTubers who wrote original songs as a tribute to Christina, I love both, I wanted to share with you.
I lost it at, “Now that you have wings, you can teach the angels how to sing…”
“I still do not understand, but I know you’re in God’s hands. You’re in a better place smiling down on me while I wipe my tears away..”
grab your tissues for this ending… I just want to give Tyler a hug.
“Take a little moment to say I really really miss you and I’ll be really honest you were never one I thought we’d lose.
So I’ll… I’ll take another moment to say I really really miss you and now we really can’t undo the time we could of should of used, so I’ll tell mom and dad I love them ’cause forever’s not far, if tomorrow’s not coming.”
There’s a GoFundMe for Christina’s family
