I'm not a very emotional guy, usually. But September 10th and 11th are very emotional for me. Those were the birthdays of my sister and mother, both of whom have gone on to be with the Lord, one by way of senseless violence of the worst possible kind, and the other via one of the most painful forms of cancer possible.
Add the commemoration of the horrible 9-11 attacks, and I get more than a bit choked up this time of year.
Thank God for the certain knowledge that He is the Sovereign over all things, and that someday He will finally and completely crush all evil, and destroy death itself, and wipe every tear from our eyes.
