This morning at my kitchen table I am filled with emotion and offer up prayers of strength for the family of James Davies.   The Lakewood officer who lost his life in a sad trail of events...but I think of the day ahead for his family...his family of wife and two children...but also his "family" in uniform.   Though it is a day for honor it is definitely a day of overwhelming emotion.   Just the sight of seeing all of those fellow officers...of seeing the impact that "one life" makes...a reminder for us all that our own life is one that should impact others...I have started putting up on facebook instead of the blue line but my own take of the blue line from the memorial for Jay...A reminder that we are each one voice.

My prayers go with them as I hope that you will join me as I know the power of prayer in times as these...I have felt it!

I borrow this picture from Geri Pring...a friend I have known...since well before my brother bought her "white elephant" box supper because her mom was an amazing cook...that would be before they started school.   And I seen the other day that Geri who works for the Colorado Springs Police Department was honored at the "Medal of Valor" ceremony.   I smile thinking of that little blonde girl now a police officer...and I appreciate what she does and the support that she gives to others.  

I go back and think of Officer Davies wife and children...their lives never to be the same.   But I pray that they may have peace...that they may have joy...that they can hold their heads up because of their dad...their husband...being an honorable man.

I shift gears and also pray for my cousin going through surgery today...a battle of honor in her own right...a battle against that enemy we call cancer!   I pray for the doctors hands...the nurses who care... and for those that could and could not be with her that they hold her up in prayer and healing!   Love to you Jody.

I have a gift bag sitting on my kitchen says...

"May the God of Hope fill you with all Joy and Peace." 
Romans 15:13

I pray for peace for heart goes out to all...
