Several months ago, while reading John 20:19-23, I immediately “saw” something I had not seen before. God has kept me coming back to this for such a time as this.…
Like the rose, her life was filled with many thorns, but still the beauty of her spirit within bloomed to encourage and bless many. Remembering my sweet and beloved Mother, Rose Ann.
This historic day we should never forget, nor should the heroic actions of all these men and women ever be cancelled out.
Who are these mostly unknown heroes we need to remember? They include, but are not limited to, the Firefighters, First Responders, Police Officers, and evening the extraordinary fellow citizens who love people enough to risk and endanger their own lives to save others. These heroic ones never start fires that destroy and dessimate citizens and cities, but instead they are the extinguishers of the furious flames of devastation. You will never see these true heroes rioting, but instead these are the brave ones who risk their own lives by running into burning buildings to save others whom they do not even know.
In times of crisis, true heroes always arise. They are not born then, however, they have been heroes all along by just quietly serving behind the scenes.
When we take time to treasure what matters most, we find the true treasures that last throughout all time.
