It's amazing how your day can be going just fine, and then a phone call, a visit, or a news report, etc., can change one's entire focus and realign one's priorties. Today was such a day. Please pray for this midshipman's family and the entire USNA community. Also, please pray for a dear friend of mine who is having serious surgery Wednesday. May God bless each of you and your families.
Watch, O Lord, with those who wake, or watch, or weep tonight, and give Your angels charge over those who sleep. Tend Your sick ones, O Lord Christ. Rest Your weary ones. Bless Your dying ones. Soothe Your suffering ones. Pity Your afflicted ones. Shield Your joyous ones. And for all Your love's sake. Amen.
