Daily D – Psalm 104:19
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.

John 9:8, 9 His neighbors and those who had seen him before as a beggar said, “Isn’t this the one who used to sit begging?” Some said, “He’s the one.” Others were saying, “No, but he looks like him.” He kept saying, “I’m the one.” (CSB)
Luke 6:43-45 “A good tree doesn’t produce bad fruit; on the other hand, a bad tree doesn’t produce good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. Figs aren’t gathered from thornbushes, or grapes picked from a bramble bush. A good person produces good out of the good stored up in his heart. An evil person produces evil out of the evil stored up in his heart, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.” (CSB)
John 8:31, 32 Then Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you really are my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (CSB)
