I am mourning along with the rest of America the senseless deaths Thursday night in Colorado. My heart, thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/20/batman-shooting-aurora-critically-injured_n_1691217.html
Is it safe to go out in public anymore? You might be sitting in a McDonalds or even as I was in a KFC yesterday when some lunatic comes in and starts shooting. We have to believe that we are safe when we go out in public, otherwise we would be afraid to leave our homes, and even that might not be safe. I usually don’t quote excerpts from the Bible in my blog. Today I am making an exception. I tend to be a worrier, if I get one problem solved in my mind a new one soon takes its place. Matthew 6:34 tells us not to worry about tomorrow, just to let the days own troubles be sufficient. I usually recite these words out loud several times a day. It does help.
I made potato salad this morning. Tomorrow my daughter and son in law are stopping by after church for lunch. I am having the potato salad, barbeque beef on buns and baked beans along with cherry pie (my daughter’s favorite) that Marie Callendar helped me make. Other than the cooking, I am not doing much today. I am going to treat myself to a couple of chapters from my new Sandford book. A question for M in Wisconsin. Have you read his Virgil Flowers books?? I love them too although I haven’t purchased the newest one yet.
I am settling in for a peaceful weekend. I hope you all do the same. Stay safe and be happy!!
P.S. I have made a resolution to not mention the excessive heat and lack of rain. Doesn’t do anything but give me something else to worry about. lol
