Best Day Ever





Today, April 19, 2016, marks the three-year anniversary of the day Dzhokhar Tsarnaev endured a full-scale assault on his mind, body, emotions, spirit, reputation and character. This assault was supposed to end his life.

God had other plans.

We who support the fact of Dzhokhar’s innocence chose today as a day to remember and honor him. May our simple and heart-felt actions serve as a soothing balm and may Dzhokhar somehow be made aware, for this young man has suffered much undeserved dishonor in the last three years.

Today, I planted Forget-Me-Not seeds for him. Lincoln planted a hibiscus, the red stands for her passion to see him released and the death penalty abolished. Kim made a wreath of forsythia and let it go in a stream, reminding me of the last verse of the song “Show Me” by Audrey Assad.  I used this song in my previous post as it so beautifully represented Jahar speaking to us with ideas of ways we could remember him: “So let me go like a leaf upon the water. Let me brave the wild currents flowing to the sea. And I will disappear into a deeper beauty. But for now just stay with me. God for now just stay with me.”

Kim also planted an urn full of Heart’s Ease. Years ago I read a beautiful quote about this plant in a very old book, “Gold by Moonlight” by Amy Carmichael. It is a wonderful message for Dzhokhar: “The plant called Heart’s Ease often grows where we should not expect to find it. And it says ‘After these sad days have passed (Dzhokhar), you will look back and wonder how you were carried through. It will not always be so hard as it has been of late; for after the darkness cometh light and after tempest cometh calm. And this is no fantasy. It shall be so.”

Isn’t that beautiful? It shall be so…

Another supporter lit a candle… Why didn’t I think of that?

The pictures are not available yet, the paperwork has not yet been received but I have it on good authority that there are now two new stars in the night sky. One is named Jahar Tsarnaev and the other Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. When the deeds to these newly-named stars arrive I have a blog post planned as a tribute to Dzhokhar.

As I was thinking again about the opposition to Dzhokhar’s release and how deep it goes, how strong it is, the Lord reminded me of a time when Judah, during the rule of King Jehoshaphat, was facing invasion by a much larger army.

Then some came and reported to Jehoshaphat, saying ‘A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea…”

Jehoshaphat was afraid and turned his attention to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. So Judah gathered together to seek help from the Lord; they even came from all the cities of Judah to seek the Lord.

Then Jehoshaphat stood in the assembly of Judah and Jerusalem, in the house of the Lord before the new court, and he said, “O Lord, the God of our fathers, are You not God in the heavens? And are You not ruler over all the kingdoms of the nations? Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You…”

He ended the prayer with this: “O our God, will You not judge them? For we are powerless before this great multitude who are coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are on You.”

Then in the midst of the assembly the Spirit of the Lord came upon Jahaziel the son of Zechariah… and he said, “Thus says the Lord to you, ‘Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s… You need not fight in this battle; station yourselves, stand and see the salvation of the Lord on your behalf, O Judah and Jerusalem. Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out to face them, for the Lord is with you.” 2 Chronicles 20: 2 – 6, 12, 14 – 15, 17

The next day, the army of Judah went out to the wilderness to wait for the invading forces, setting those who worshipped and sang to the Lord in front of the line. And God set ambushes; the approaching armies destroyed one another.

When Judah came to the lookout of the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude, and behold, they were corpses lying on the ground, and no one had escaped.  V24

Can you just imagine that? All that was left for Judah to do was come along and pick up the spoils, of which there were so many, it took three days to carry it all back.

I am sure they saw it as one of the best days ever.

Dzhokhar’s best day ever is still coming and nothing can stop it. In that day, I believe with all my heart that my God will be his God and He will vindicate Dzhokhar.

Someone recently tweeted “God never leaves what belongs to Him in ruins.” Indeed.

Looking back on the events of this day three years ago is painful. Looking ahead to what is coming for Dzhokhar gives me great joy – not fear. The day is coming when every news source from Fox to Infowars will carry the breaking news:




Truly, it will be the best day ever – for Dzhokhar and for us. He will be vindicated and so will we. He will shed the terrorist label as we throw off the brand of conspiracy theorists.

And this time we will dance in the streets.

I can see Dzhokhar, waiting for that day in his cell, singing the song below. If only he could know there are those who wait and sing with him.

I would love to hear in the comments section below how you honored Dzhokhar today. Our stories will be compiled to share with Dzhokhar’s family and his new attorneys.

Winston Churchill said no crime is so great as daring to excel. I am ready to take that dare. An unexpected and somewhat unexplainable compassion for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has drawn me out of my comfort zone.

  1. I am so glad to see there are still people believing in his innocence and caring about him. I sometimes feels like/fear that he is forgotten.

    The day he will be released will be such a beautiful day, I know it will happen even if it seems like there is no hope.

    I just hope he knows that there are people caring about him, refusing to burry him alive and erase his existence. I hope he is strong mentally so he is fit to enjoy his life when is freed. .

    1. Hi Lara, Thank you for your supportive words. I too am glad Jahar has not simply been forgotten like that evil Judge O’Toole indicated he would be. I believe quite the opposite will happen and Jahar will be the problem for the government perpetrators who refuses to go away. One day, the right people will pay the price for what they have done to Jahar and everyone else who was hurt by the Boston Marathon false flag. I am sure of it!

  2. I planted a flower, is simple but what matters is the intention. It’s so good to know that there are several people from various part of the world also support and make a gesture like this for this young man!

    1. I am so grateful for each and every gesture that occurred on Jahar’s behalf! Thank you for taking the time to remember him and participate. Nothing done in love is ever wasted.

  3. Lynn,I am new here but also convinced of the innocence of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.I am from Switzerland and a born again Christian.I pray for Dzhokhar and his family every time the God from the Bible lays it on my heart to do so.Your blogging is very truthful and beautiful in regards of this unusual case.I pray not only for Dzhokhar and his family I do pray for the Bostonians for all who played a role in wrongfully convicting this young man.On this day April 19th I made the balloon action you have spoken from.It was very windy so the balloon got very quikly up into the sky.The photo from the balloon in the sky is on my timeline on my personal Facebook page with my full Name or you can go on the FBP “Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is innocent-free jahar”and there you will find it as well under photos.If you want that I would send it here on your Blogg , you do have to help me because I do not exactly know how to send it on your Blogg . I had the urge to pray very often for Dzhokhar around those days of anniversary of all that he had to go through about three years go.I had the gut feeling that he had not a very good time and memories who do come back very often.I hope he can write it down somehow.Our God has a plan for Dzhokhar.I am sure of that.With interest I do read your essays and I am happy that I am not alone in believing in Gods intervention in the situation Dzhokhar and his family is in now.I am looking foreward onto reading your next essay ,have a nice time and greetings from Switzerland.

    1. Hi Elizabeth! I am so glad to hear from you! I have been retweeting you for awhile… I would love a picture of your balloon! If you follow me on Twitter, send me a DM containing the picture so I can take a screenshot of it. Then I can post it to my blog. This is good timing as I will be doing another blog post updating the results of our April 19th event to honor Jahar in the next day or so.

  4. I have sown wildflower seeds in the field across from me and I put a sign there that says, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is innocent. It’s a fairly busy road and many people have slowed down and seen it. Sorry I’m late but strangely I could not get on this site for the last 3 days. This is a beautiful post and tribute to Dzhokhar and his strength. I love what others have done, and so many others have prayed. Let’s continue to fight for Dzhokhar until the truth is known and he is freed.

    1. Hi Julie, I have been awaiting your comment! I love that people have been slowing down to read the sign! Hopefully you can find a way to get a picture of the sign and the field to me…

  5. God is hearing everyone’s prayers for Jahar. Good that you planted the flowers Lynn. Stay positive always for him. I said my prayers for him as soon as I got up this morning. Jahar will be vindicated. No doubt about that. Amen. On a wider scale I changed my FB cover to ‘Abolish Death Penalty’. This is a cause I believe in very deeply.

    1. Thank you so much for your support on behalf of Jahar and all those under the tyranny of man playing God with their lives. The death penalty is wrong no matter what crime has been committed.

  6. ❤Thank you Lynn! We all have a part in this. I thank you! Your voice speaks beyond countries for those who can’t blog! My tears drop seeing the immense support for this beautiful innocent soul.

  7. What joy when that day arrives Lynn and I believe it will arrive!! I am patiently waiting for it and Jahar will shout his freedom to all his enemies who called him terrorist! His supporters who stood by him the whole time will be free like Jahar will be free. For Jahar in his honor for this day that young body endured and yet fought to keep his life. God didn’t take him at Watertown or the boat and he won’t take him in the gurney. Jahar will be freed before that needle hits the vein. What I did…I planted a hibiscus which is known for delicate beauty which Jahars life has become. Red ones for love and passion I have for this case and his beautiful soul. Big red flowers will bloom that will remind me of Jahars red beating heart. Another special thing me and Lynn together have purchased a star in the sky for Jahar. Everything has been taken away from him. Not this star. We dedicate this star in the sky to Jahar so every night in the dark sky Jahar will be shining in our hearts forever as we shout #FreeJahar!!!

    1. God bless you Lincoln! The thought of all you have done on behalf of one who can do so little for himself but wait and trust right now brings tears to my eyes…
