The phone rang a 6:30 am. It was my son calling from Texas. "Mom, do you know what's going on?" The rest of the day and into the week became a blur of television and ministry in the church.
As I sit here today, seven years later, it still seems like yesterday. The day our world changed forever. My heart still aches as images cross my mind and horrified faces of those known and unknown flash before my eyes.
Today...I pause...to remember...those lost...those injured...those longing for the company of loved ones gone...those fighting the battle for freedom...the grieving...the hurting...the angry...the tired...
No matter how this date affected you in 2001, it is a date that will affect our world forever. Nothing will ever be the same.
I am thankful to a God...who never changes! He still loves the broken hearted...heals the hurting...gives strength to the tired...brings peace where there seems to be none...AND forgives the sinner.
Today...I pause...to remember!
Cindy... beautiful post! I remember it as if it were yesterday as well. I remember the eerie silence the week held... I remember the first time I saw a plane fly over my house after flying was permitted again - I jumped up and down and clapped!ReplyDelete
Remembering with you my sister in Christ!
Pausing in my heart to remember; pausing also, to live more victoriously every day.ReplyDelete
