I wasn’t going to post anything this weekend, as I have something scheduled for publishing tomorrow, but I was told about this article in the Virginian-Pilot, this morning, in my Sunday School class. I’ve entitled my page on today’s culture “Going to Hell in a Handbasket”, in keeping with my perspective on our times, and my curmudgeonliness. However, every once in a while, a candle shines in the darkness. Although I am the farthest thing from a Pollyanna, when I read about such candles, I want to acknowledge the light that they give.
Mark Rodriguez was one such candle. Only 17-years-old, Mark was killed in a shooting spree this past May. The article tells how his parents found out that Mark kept a prayer journal, and that it was g-r-e-a-t!. His parents were so moved by what he wrote that they started a blog to publish excerpts from his journal. Please go to the Pilot article and read it, and then go to the blog that they set up.
I promise you, you will be blessed.
