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.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
