autumn-015A WOMAN WAS PULLED OVER FOR SPEEDING. ONE WEEK LATER SHE GOT THIS IN THE MAIL by Steve Smith

Last week I was pulled over for going 65 in a 55. The officer took my license and registration. While I sat and waited I was reminiscing about my dad like always lately. The officer returned to my car and said its your lucky day, we were born on the same day and year, slow down and have a good day. I smiled and said thank you. He walked away and I broke down and started crying. Thinking he was back in his car. He surprised me and tapped on my window asking if I was ok. I told him I was sad, I just lost my dad. He said take a minute and breath. He talked to me a minute then helped me back into traffic. Today I received this beautiful card in the mail.

Thank you Deputy Dan Hill #227 of St. Clair County Sheriffs Department

This was what she saw.

23

Here’s what he wrote inside.

34

It reads:

My condolence on the loss of your father. I’m sure he was a great man who loved his family. I pray that your tears of sadness becomes tears of joy in remembering his legacy.

“He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and death shall be no more. Neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore; for the former things have passed away.”

Revelation 21:4

Deputy Dan Hill #227
St. Clair County Sheriff’s Department

Like many in law enforcement often do, this officer proved that behind the badge is a heart as big as any.

Shake off Your Problems

A man’s favorite donkey falls into a deep precipice; He can’t pull it out no matter how hard he tries; He therefore decides to bury it alive.

Soil is poured onto the donkey from above. The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it; More soil is poured.

It shakes it off and steps up; The more the load was poured, the higher it rose; By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures.

After much shaking off (of problems) And stepping up (learning from them), One will graze in GREEN PASTURES.

Powerful Quotes from Corrie Ten Boom:

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”

“Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you.”

“There is no panic in Heaven! God has no problems, only plans.”

“When I try, I fail. When I trust, he succeeds.”

Today’s blog will contain photos that Roy or I have taken during our travels throughout the United States over the last year. I will create one of these for each of the last three years showing many of the beautiful places we traveled to. This is a bit unusual for our Wacky Wonderful Wednesdays blog but some of the things we’ve seen are either beautiful or just plain cool!  They are all clickable so you can enlarge them.
