Where were you on 9-11-01?

Hubby was at work and the kiddos and I were gone for the day shopping in Amish country at a flea market with a friend.  There was a little bit of talk going around that a plane had crashed into a building in New York but I didn't think anything catastrophic had happened.  When we left early afternoon I called my husband on a friend's cell phone and he said to fill up the van with gas no matter how much it cost.  He also said to go straight home and turn on the t.v.  Wow, was I shocked.  The Twin Towers? The Pentagon?  A plane diverted from the White House by a very brave group of men?  Really?  Thousands of people dead?  My kiddos were 4, 3, and 1 at the time so they had no idea what we were watching.  I sat and cried over the devastation and the fear that the people in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania must be feeling.  I sat and cried over the lives lost that might not have known the love of Jesus.  Then I went out and put my flag back out (I had just put it away Labor Day.),  and prayed.

Please take a moment today to remember the victims of 9/11.
Thank the Lord for your life, your health, your family, and your country.

God Bless.
