Today is Thursday, February 7th, 2019; Karen's Korner #3974

Anyone but me think things are sometimes crazy? If everything is good in our own worlds, we know others who their world isn't what they'd like. Or something in  our nation or some other country is askew!

As Karen's Korner readers know, our Marys & Marthas (M & Ms), an ecumenical group locally, sends cards of encouragement and thanks to police departments across the U.S. who have had an officer shot or killed in the line of duty.

We had a mid-month meeting in January and do not have another one until Tuesday, February 19. So far I have the names of five police departments and one sheriff's department who have lost a fellow officer!


Here is Sarah Young's "Jesus Calling:  Enjoying Peace in His Presence" from yesterday:

"Come to Me and rest. I am all about you, to bless and restore. Breathe Me in with each breath. The way just ahead of you is very steep. Slow down and cling tightly to My hand. I am teaching you a difficult lesson, learned only by hardship.

"Lift up empty hands of faith to receive My precious Presence. Light, Life, Joy, and Peace flow freely through this gift. When your focus turns away from Me, you grasp for other things. You drop the glowing gift of My Presence as you reach for lifeless ashes. Return to Me; regain My Presence."

~ Taken from Matthew 1:28 - 29; 1 Timothy 2:8
