Evil vs Good...

This entry was originally written and posted in Life with Lynnie (LwL) on blog.com, rather than here on blogspot.com, due to the problems I had posting any entry, here. Now that blogger has this site working properly again, I thought I would copy and repost here, to save you from having to back and forth between sites.

Evil vs Good…

Yesterday in Life with Lynnie (LwL), I wrote about how it did my heart good to see more and more people standing up and remembering. Jesus of course, but also our veterans and military who serve to protect us.

There were a few more Windsor Star articles that I was happy to read.

The following article is one about a house that I have actually seen in the past, when visiting Normandy’s Juno Beach in Courseulles-sur-Mer, where Canadians began to liberate Europe. While I’ve seen it at a distance, and wondered if it had been there in 1944, I never really knew anything about it.

On my next visit there, I’ll be sure to check it out: http://www.windsorstar.com/news/House+still+marks+Canada+heroism/7529164/story.html#ixzz2BrJcQ8e8

Talking about liberation, the following article was written by a man who lives in my city, but who had a memorable experience while living in Holland, during WW2: http://www.windsorstar.com/news/Liberation+Dutch+will+never+forget/7522640/story.html#ixzz2BkTDRcB5

It makes me happy to know there are people like me, who believe we must be grateful for those who put their lives on the line for us. For our freedom. And, who also stand up for truth. God’s truth.

Just as Corrie ten Boom and her family did, in Haarlem, Netherlands.

As I’ve written in the past, my now-deceased husband Gordon and I visited the Ten Boom Museum. Hopefully, I will, again!

It is truly one of the best museums I have ever visited. Not just because it tells of the history of WW2 and the suffering people endured, but also because it is a Christian museum. One that actually gave a gospel message!

The volunteer who took us and an American couple through, showed us all the hiding places. She also said how thankful she and others were, in the past and still to that day, for the Canadians who liberated their area.

And, for the air-drops that were made. If you check out this site, you will see on segment of Bedroom #1, Scene 9, a glass-encased storage unit. It contains on the right side, one of the actual cans that were dropped by Canadians, to help those in the area.

Apparently, the cans contained food and medical supplies. This Christian volunteer told about how people were starving, because the Nazi’s had taken all their food.

No pets survived; they had been eaten. And, people were surviving by eating tulip bulbs.

Here is a link to Ten Boom Museum: http://tenboom.org/index.php It’s a great site; I hope you’ll check it out, and maybe even visit it, if you can.

Does this mean I am a supporter of war?

No. I’m not. But, I am a believer that we need to stand up for what is right. And, do all we can to wipe out evil.

Thinking about evil, I recalled Romans 12:21, “Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

In order to do this, we must fight evil. Do good. And, pray. Always.

Until next time…
