Daily D – Psalm 104:19

by | Sep 11, 2021 | Daily D | 0 comments

You made the moon to mark the seasons, and the sun knows when to set.
PSALM 104:19 (CSB)

—————————————————————————
 

Many moons ago, the sun set on a dastardly day. 

Evil took aim and hit its mark again, again, again. 

Thousands of cries suddenly silenced. Forever lost. Forever gone. 

Twenty years on, weeping continues on schedule. 

Some wounds never heal.

Decades pass. Memories linger. Grief returns. 

Between the naïveté of September 10 and the resolution of September 12 remains the horror of September 11. 

The moon marks the seasons. The sun sets day by day. Here we are.

Let us remember. 

Let us grieve.

Let us pray. 

Let us work for a new season, a new day, an enduring peace.

—————————————————————————

I will remember and I will join our Father in heaven in building a better world. 

—————————————————————————

Our Father, the gift of memory reminds us of important events that shape us and reshape our world. The gift of hope teaches us that this world can experience better outcomes. The gift of grace places in our possession healing balm and building blocks. This world needs your touch again. Reach through us to provide restoration and renewal. May this be the season when the sun sets in the triumph of your love which seeks the highest good for all people everywhere. Amen.
