pray with me.

praise the Lord for for the death of usama bin laden.  our world can feel a slight twinge safer and maybe those who lost a loved one can feel a bit more closure.  i will admit that it feels wrong to be thankful for the death of another person...especially when you remember that the Lord LOVES usama as one of His own children.   

while this is a great "victory" for our heart is heavy for those on the other side of the story...the muslims who followed him.  i'm praying that Jesus would use this time to draw them ever closer to the one true Savior. 

i think this exerpt form Obama is important to keep in mind as well:
"We must also reaffirm that the United States is not, and never will be, at war with Islam. I’ve made clear, just as President Bush did shortly after 9/11, that our war is not against Islam.  Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader. He was a mass murderer of Muslims."

 praying for hurting hearts everywhere this morning and praying that those most effected by 9/11 are a little closer to feeling that justice was done.

definately praying. As much as my earthly self wants to celebrate, my Christian heart is sad that we are celebrating the death of a man that did not know Jesus.

I think we see things very differently from a religious point of view but I appreciate your sensitive and compassionate tone.

Personally, I hope that when he left this world he was restored to what he was when he entered it -- before whatever made him an evil and twisted man got to him. I hope that we are all so restored when our time comes.
