Greetings. It looks as if Spring may come to Chicago after all. How’s the weather by you?
This weekend came and went. I saw the aftermath of a fatal highway crash on Friday. I went to the funeral of a young father on Saturday. I thought about my own father who was born on April 22, which was Sunday, which was also Earth Day.
One of the readings from that funeral was from Philippians 4:4-9 (Final Exhortations). I don’t usually share scripture, but the last two verses made me think. If you’re not a God person, you can substitute “Grace” and the sentiment remains intact.
Peace, love, and solace
Meditate on These Things
8 Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. 9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.
