A Family Celebration

We didn't drive up to the family celebration. But I wanted to acknowledge it anyway.

Monday, the man who murdered Chester's aunt two years ago was sentenced. 55 years in prison. He's already 55, so not likely to be out on the streets to kill again (after twice already, and a third attempted).

A sad topic. And humbling.

How little control we have over our lives.

Thank you to the officers in particular who made this long and difficult road end as quickly as possible.

And thank you to the LORD for bringing good fruit out of this in the life of the man he tried to kill. God has been exceedingly merciful to him. May the glory be yours, Jesus.
