Just in case anyone checks the time a post is posted, yes it is 1:10 AM. I obviously cannot sleep tonight. For a few reasons. One-I have tons of t-shirt ideas running through my brain. Two-remembering the VA Tech Tragedy one year ago today. Isn't it so hard to wrap your head around such terrible things? I remember Coach speaking at church right after everything happened. Coach if you are reading this please forgive gaps in my memory. I just remember him talking about a list of tragedy's like Katrina, the war in Iraq, The Tsunami, and how they reek havoc and destruction. He then went on to say how it was nothing compared to the havoc and destruction Jesus Christ would reek on pain and suffering and death. I hope I am conveying this right because it was not in any way disrespectful to anyones pain but encouraging rather to the victory we have in Christ. He has conquered death and the grave.
"...Death is destroyed forever in victory." "Death where is your victory? Death where is your pain?
I Cor. 15:54b & 55
"He will destroy death forever. The Lord God will wipe away every tear from every face."
So I am praying for the victim's families today. For the Lord to wipe away their tears.
I like Job can "speak of things I do not understand and talk of things too wonderful for me to know." So I hope this all makes sense.
Chris my "brother from another mother with the same perfect father" I am still waiting on that sermon. It seems fitting for today.
Well, I guess that is it for today. Crystal I did get your tag which I will get to, it just didn't seem fitting for today. I hope my mind can rest now. The alarm will go off before I am ready for it too.
Hug your loved ones and tell them what they mean to you!
