Few things in life have real lasting effects. But the events that occurred over the weekend of August 9, 2014 have had worldwide effects. Two incidents: one that happened personally in my life beginning the Friday before, August 8 and lasting through October, had minor consequences. But the actions of two men in a state hundreds of miles away from me had determined the fate of at least one man and an entire country. There is so much hurt and pain in the world and it was seen clearly the weekend of August 9. For me it was a temporary loss…one that was easily repaired, though we struggled with the effects for at least a year later. But the effects of the other incident are still being experienced to this day. The pain is still evident. The hurt is clear. Will the crisis ever be solved. I believe it will. One day. I will explain based on verses in Hebrews that have bought me tremendous peace through tough times.
