Day 266, September 23

I grew up watching westerns on a small black and white television. In these shows, the good guys always came out on top. Sometimes, I find myself longing for those simple days where good always triumphed over evil.
That naive view has remained with me. I want to see good triumph. Too frequently, we witness evil triumphing. Then I remind myself that what appears a triumph of "the bad guys" is only temporary. The Lord has a plan and it does not allow for evil to triumph.
In the meantime, we can do our part to further the Lord's plan. We can speak out against atrocities. We can vote for righteous men and women to govern our country. We can teach our children and grandchildren eternal principles. We can be a good neighbor. We can be honest in our dealings.
So, for today, I am grateful for the Lord's plan, where good is triumphant.


  1. Good will triumph. . . just not necessarily in 30 minute to 1 hour increments. Drat.

  2. Great comment Deliese, loved it. I agree and it's good to be reminded of it. No fun when the enemy and evil triumph.
