Friends, today is a day to look up and notice. To pray.
Consider the tension in the Middle East. Many are fleeing from ISIS. Check these pictures out: refugees celebrating Christmas after having left their homes for the safety of an Ankawa camp.
These are beautiful people, and I wish I could be there to pray with them, hold their hands. I am grateful that we are part of a country with resources that can help, and as I pray for these war-torn areas of the world, I am also grateful for those who serve in the military to make our world safer and to offer humanitarian aid.
Let us keep in prayer those suffering and also those making sacrifices for us.
