September 11, 2001. Let us never forget this day in history. Our country and the world were profoundly changed forever. Today I am praying for the families and friends of those who personally lost someone in the 9 11 attack. Their loss immediately became our loss. I am remembering all of the brave men and women who unselfishly came to assistance of those in need. It seems like we all wanted to do something for someone else. We wanted to reach out. Our neighbors became our friends, whether we knew them or not. We hugged our family members a little tighter. I am remembering our country with pride as we joined together as citizens, not looking at our political, economical or racial differences, but as individuals. For a moment in time we realized we are not the center of the universe. Our hearts joined with one another as we ached for each other and we cried together as a nation of people who were in shock. We cared for each other on a level we had never known before. We all sought answers to similar questions and did not judge each other for wondering, and not having the answers. As a nation we reflected on the same heart-wrenching issues. The name God was unashamedly used as we looked to Him for comfort not just for ourselves but for our fellow Americans. We all had the same needs. We needed reassurance and hope. We sought for answers. Sacrifices were made that day on behalf of one another, as people willingly relinquished their own needs to serve others. We began to understand maybe for the first time that day, the term terrorist. The words hate and evil became an unfortunate reality. And we learned the concept of freedom in a deeper and more personal way that memorable day, 9 11. Our lives were changed forever.
Learning to trust God . . . as I remember 9 11. . . One Day at a Time
This is a brand new blog as I am now on a new type of journey! I am learning more and more each day what it truly means to trust God. This journey is taking me deeper and deeper into what it means to surrender my all to Him. I would love to have you come along with me as I share my ups and downs, my joys and sorrows and as I seek a closer relationship and walk with my Saviour.
I need to add that I am beginning the blog again after almost a year and a half. I am still on a journey to learn to trust God and seek to know His will for me. I write mainly for myself, but anyone is welcome to join me on this journey.
