A List

I was going to post a tag today, but something happened on Monday, and I figured I should tell you all about it. But I haven’t really been able to gather my thoughts yet, either, so I’m just going to give you a list of the basic details. 


At around 3:15 on Monday, my pastor was stabbed in his house. 

I was there when he was life flighted out from the field at our church. 

I watched them load his stretcher onto the helicopter. 

The wind was whipping the grass, and the helicopter was yellow and black. 

I splashed a bit of coffee on one of my nicest books. 

Somehow those were the only details I could focus on for the rest of the day. 

Sometimes the mind can only handle the small stuff. 

I really like my pastor. 

He likes to comment on how much I read. 

He is expected to make a full recovery. 

Over a hundred people gathered in my church last night to pray for him and his family and the assailant. 

There was a very short, scary time before the assailant was caught, but he is in custody now. 

Please pray. 

God is still good.
