I am weeping as I watch
the dedication of the Bush
Presidential Library. I don’t
know why. Five presidents standing
together. Each expressing love of country
and humankind and loyalty in
different ways. Each lifting a different
torch to light the way. The men/leaders
are not inferior, but the brightness
of their illumination is.
Could we be on
the cusp of losing such glorious
freedoms for which our country
was called as a beacon of light?
If such darkness should try to
stamp out liberties, faith will
flourish to light the way. Still
it seems the passing of an era
and the task before us of
embracing the unknown.
The shaking is coming, and I rejoice
that my “anchor holds within the veil.”
“For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you” (Isaiah 60:2).
