Testing 1 2 3
Every time I try to post about our Silver Wedding anniversary, it crashes ....every time no matter what day I try.

So today after successfully posting this test message and then a subsequent crash of new post, I decided to edit my test post lol.
Silver Looks good on us!
Hope to have more pictures of the church reception, but here are a few other memories.

I haven't posted in forever because all my attempts were thwarted by the software or some other power. So I'm attempting once again. I was going to change to another hosting program but the setup was aggravating and I finally just deleted it. So, posting this short blurb, or going to try and if success then I will try a longer one. If unsuccessful, you'll never know .....

This week was super hard! Our very own hero Tim Brackeen was shot and killed in the line of duty. 
Two churches or more joined together Wednesday night to have a beautiful, worshipful Memorial service, Thursday night the community poured in along with a sea of law enforcement to the visitation, his faithfulness was proclaimed nation wide.

Yesterday......about 8000 people gathered in the stadium, and multitudes watched on all the major news outlets as a funeral worthy of a president was held. His brother preached a Gospel message and gave the invitation.
Officers from as far away as Chicago and New York came to pay their respects in person, the Governor of North Carolina came and had part in the funeral. I'll never forget as the family walked off the field, the governor with no pomp or politicking or looking for media attention, slipped alongside Tim's brother and gave him a comforting hug. 

Timothy Brackeen was faithful! Can you image the celestial reception he received in Heaven?
I can't wait for tomorrow as we worship together and unite to let God heal us....may I be found faithful in God's eyes!

A snippet from one of the many news channels that covered the funeral.

Be still

My last day of work, one of my clients repeatedly told me how God told her to be still and let Him work.  That stuck with me the last week, as I wait on the Lord to direct my path. 
Today, time stood still when we got the news that one of our faithful church members who is a police officer died today from being shot in the line of duty. 
My last memory of him was his praying with his little girl at the altar just a week ago. I am so glad to have that memory...
My day has been frozen for a bit as I stop to grieve, pray, and draw comfort from God's Word.
Pray for the Brackeen family, our law enforcement, and our community. 

As our church gathered in prayer yesterday as our friend, brother, and protector hung onto life, a precious young girl next to me sobbed and begged God to let her take his place so that he could live.
My spirit was smote within me at yet another example of true love and self sacrifice.
Would you lay down your life for another?!
