On Saturday we returned from our annual vacation and anniversary celebration at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I was refreshed and rested and looking forward to sharing the experience with you. As I sat down at my computer this morning to write this post, I realized I just couldn’t do it. I am so saddened by the events over the last couple of days in Charlotte and I am praying for peace and justice.
I will share my Hilton Head experiences with you later on and I do look forward to doing that. However, Charlotte is a very special place for me and is only about 50 miles from where I live in Conover. My first job after finishing school was indowntown Charlotte right where the protests happened last night. I met Mr. D in Charlotte and my daughter was born at Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte. There are many good people that live in that city and I am sure they are disillusioned too.
Mr. D and I visited Wing Haven in Charlotte last Spring and I snapped this picture of downtown.
I am lifting up prayers that peace will be restored and justice will be served. This scripture verse came to me this morning and I want to share it with you: Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
Romans 15:7 NIV
This final picture is of Wing Haven and the peacefulness and beauty of the garden when we visited in the Spring.
Let there be peace on Earth and let it begin with me. Thanks for stopping by.
