Good morning, Dear Friends and Prayer Partners! This is the day that the Lord has made and we will rejoice and be glad in it! Well, I know some people are not rejoicing today, and I think of the officers' families who were shot down yesterday. May God comfort and give them peace.
As I watched the TV yesterday with all the news about what was happening, I thought of my two nephews who are in law enforcement, and how one had to draw his weapon at one time. They are in danger each day as they go to work, and yet this is the work they have chosen. I thank God for their safety and for their selfless protection of us.
I heard one speaker yesterday, and I don't think he was with the PD, but he said there was a time to heal. I immediately thought of this passage from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
From the Promise Bible NLT:
There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity under heaven,
A time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to rebuild.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak up.
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
I always give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers with thanksgiving, joy and love!
Love and hugs,
