I like this quote that is attributed to Martin Luther: “Even if I knew tomorrow the world would go to pieces I would still plant my apple tree.”
Today I am personally thankful for: a beautiful new day; my first amendment right to protest; the truth that God loves us unconditionally and calls us to love one another.
Lord God, in these trying times help me to oppose strongly that which is against my faith and our country, while also being intentional in loving my neighbor.
