It’s Saturday night. I need to get this written before I forget some of the things I need to say.
I just got a message that a woman I’ve known and been friends with since 1974 has gone home to heaven sometime today. She was a couple of years older than I. She was a powerhouse for the Lord, never afraid to take a stand for what she believed was right. She was also a bold and faithful witness and soul winner. I will miss her. Many, many others will miss her; her devoted husband most of all.
The death of friends and family is something. you have to learn to expect as you grow older, but knowing that’s true doesn’t make it any easier to accept.
I am horrified and angry over the misery in Minneapolis. It was home for me for some time, and I hate to see it having these terrible problems.
The death of George Floyd is, as far as I can see, unforgivable. I pray that justice will be served. What is happening right now is NOT justice! It is an excuse for criminal behavior, and it is appalling. A friend told me that she heard on Fox News that most who have been arrested during this free-for-all are not from Minneapolis at all. It wouldn’t be the first time “protestors” have been paid to come in and destroy a city. It makes me SO angry!
COVID 19. Some Governors are still calling for Draconian measures. In my opinion, they have way overstepped their authority. And please, please–I will not allow this blog site to become an outlet for ugliness, so if you’re going to respond, understand that I will not post your response if it is nothing but negativity and accusation. There is very little good to say about this present situation. We just need to be close to the Lord; we need to love each other as brothers and sisters in Christ, and not be a part of the hatefulness that is being stirred up even among believers. Our pastor emphasized last Sunday that we Christians need to love each other. He was right. There is no room for anger and bitterness among believers. We aren’t always going to agree, but there is no need to be disagreeable.
Many churches will be meeting tomorrow for the first time since the lockdowns were put into place. Our church had already scheduled our first gathering for next Sunday, June 7. It is also our 51st anniversary, so that’s a very nice way to celebrate. In any event, please enjoy your liberty and don’t take it for granted. Be thankful. And don’t be critical of others who aren’t quite ready to venture out into the open yet.
All right, I’m done. Going to bed. Blessing to you all.
