As I sat and watched the jury declare Casey Anthony "not guilty" I was shocked. Even more so, watching her after the jurors had been escorted out of the court room, and seeing her parents make a quick exit as well, what was she thinking? Then again, What must they all be thinking? feeling?
As Casey began to laugh, and chat away with those around her, I was so sad. So sad for her baby girl. A beautiful 2 year old, whose life was taken from her far too soon. Yet, her mother was giddy. She was free. Free from the possibility of the death penalty. Free from facing consequences of actions she allegedly committed. Was she thinking of Caylee at all?
I have thought so much about how she spent her nights in jail and more importantly, how she spent that last night before hearing of her conviction or as we all witnessed her "not guilty verdict."
Does she pray? Does she practice "positive thinking" and believe it will come true like so many "new age movement" thinkers do? Or did she just pace all day and night allowing Fear to rule and reign her thoughts and mind?
I truly never have understood how people get through life without Christ. Whether it be getting through the loss of a loved one and experiencing the Comfort and Peace that only truly comes from the Lord. Or maybe, it is the way HE will show HIMSELF strong in a situation and bring you that "Suddenly" moment, knowing there is no way to deny that it was the Lord working in your life. I will be praying for Casey Anthony. I don't even begin to judge where she is spiritually. Based on the facts of the case, it would be safe to say she needs Jesus in her life as her SAVIOR in a BIG WAY. Clearly, she is attempting to numb some pain in her life with all the partying she does and lying that comes with it. It's all so very sad. She needs a miracle to put her on the path to Eternity.
But then again, Our Lord is still in the Miracle business today and forevermore!
