Today: The killing of five police officers is weighing heavy on my heart. As one who watched a friend's daughter lose her policeman husband and another friend her son, I feel for the whole community of officers and their families. Policemen stand up for their fallen. Could the church learn from them?
At my writing desk: I have some curriculum hours to make up, so I'll do that this weekend before I begin any other writing. I also have a Banner article to write before Tuesday. It's churning around in my head.
Praying for: The families of the fallen police officers.
Thankful for: Our visit with Daddy. We met Steve and Melodie to pick him up, and then back to meet them. So we were able to sneak in two visits with them. We had a good holiday, and Daddy enjoyed being with the girls and their families. The four days went fast.
I'm reading: For my book club this month, I need to read a book by an author I didn't like, to see if I like a later book. The only one I can think of is Jan Karon (Don't shoot me -- her writing is just too slow for me). Which book of Karon's did you like the best?
Postmarking: I have 9 to go out today. Do you have a return address stamp? Melanie gifted one to me, and I've been happy with it.
Favorite quote: A cop has a calling. It's not about making money. Being a cop is about making communities safe, caring for children, and doing what it takes to stop from hurting another person.
