The Weekend

"Catch The Magic" Did you catch the magic of the opening Olympics in Beijing, China? It seemed magical.

and i am actually off from work. BUT today we head up to Richmond to show our son how to get to the college on Wednesday for orientation. Everything seems to be going so fast.

My middle son, the busy police officer, whom I haven't seen in a week, stopped by last night to get something to eat. He's excited they installed a computer in his car. Now he gets all his info straight from the input and much quicker, when responding to stops and calls. Technology is amazing. It's so sad though bc on Thursday in Virginia Beach a police officer was shot and killed. He leaves behind a wife and two young sons. I pray every day for the safety of my son and all the guys on the force. They are all so quick to back one another up but it only takes a second for a fatality. I've said this before but my greatest concern is that shooters have become so young, just little children carrying weapons, and breaking the law. Unfortunately, most come from broken homes and have grown up in that environment.

I want to go down to the beach on Sunday to attend church with our oldest son. Not sure that will happen. He has started experiencing anxiety attacks again, its work related. So keep him in prayer.

Prayers for your son, even though I'm reading this much later than you posted it. Hoping your leg is feeling okay, too.
