Yesterday Sunday morning quiet. Something new. Last night there were alarms in Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy regions, later and Zhytomyr, Khmelnytskyi. What will happen next? We’ll find out tomorrow.
Bahmut shelled 24 hours a day. Kharkiv…
That night was reminiscent of those first war nights. Anxiety, explosions, but we are already one year more experienced.
11 kamikaze drones were downed by Ukrainian anti-missile systems. There are injuries and fatalities in Khmelnytskyi region.
Nikopol, Dnipro region, destroyed residential houses. (photo)
This morning, Ukraine all red. Alert.

The Word… “Behold now the longed-for time, behold now the day of salvation.” What is the longed-for time, the time of salvation? It is every day in which you see and hear God giving you the Holy Spirit, which gives you light in the darkness, life in war. Among other things, Lent is a wonderful time of salvation. Don’t be afraid to open your Bible and read and hear. Today… Now…

We live in a war, we don’t live by war.
