They’ll Be Dead by Morning (What Difference Will it Make?)

They’ll Be Dead by Morning (What Difference Will it Make?)

An absolutely beautiful post I just happened to stumble upon, though I believe I was meant to read it and share it with you.

It concerns the 33 Christians about to be (or maybe they already have been) executed in North Korea.

I’ve been kind of distracted this week with housekeeping duties, so I haven’t taken the time to post the interesting news blips. Here is a short recap. *I have not included reports on the Marathon bombing or plant explosion in TX, not out of disrespect, but because that news is everywhere. I want to share news that may have been overlooked, but is still pertinent.

I know, I know. I’ve been MIA for the past few days. Our daughter is on Spring Break, as is much of the country apparently because we’ve all seemed to have gathered in the same spot. We had to try four different hotels before finding a place to lay our heads. No, I didn’t make reservations obviously. We come here every year and it has been my experience that regardless of internet specials, it is still cheaper to just wait and pay when we get here. Anyway, none of this really matters. Here’s some news blips from the past couple of days.

As you undoubtedly know, events are unfolding in North Korea that deserve our serious consideration.  I have a friend who is spending the year in South Korea, teaching English to middle schoolers through the Fulbright program. She, and many other people here in America, think there is nothing to worry about. An attack by North Korea would be suicide on their part.  However, during these Last Days, I say anything is possible; especially when dealing with an immature, power-hungry lunatic. Here are some news blips:
