You can imagine how excited I am to be with my family. I know that all of the busy-ness surrounding their trip will be pretty breathtaking. Never the less, the excitement of the trip might be enough to overcome the hassle!
I just received a phone call from my daughter, Emily, that her preparations will be more difficult. She is in graduate school in DC and phoned to tell me that her car had been stolen!! She isn't harmed, though she is very upset. We both appreciate your prayers during this difficult time for her.
I can only imagine what might motivate a theft like this. As in all criminal activities, the end result has ripple effects on many people. Who knows what the motivation was, but I ask your prayers for the thief as well. Living a life where one steals the property of another cannot be much of a life of meaning. May God seek and find this perpetrator and lead him to a place of repentance and forgiveness.
Thank you for your prayers.
