Time to Remember

Photo courtesy of Martin J. Betters


Today is a very special day for our country.

Seven years ago this morning, life as we know it changed.

Planes crashed.

Buildings fell.

People died.

Let's take time out from our regular routines to remember those who lost their lives on that tragic day and say a prayer for their grieving families and friends.

Let's pray for our Nation and our future, that it may never happen again.

We may never know why...... but God has a plan and He has promised to be with us through it all.

Yes, a good reminder...God is still in control. Why this happened we won't know until we meet our Maker, but for now, this must remain our hope, and our constant. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment! Take care.

Thanks for stopping by today. And thank you for keeping things in perspective. It's so hard to trust God's soverignty sometimes, espeically with something so tragic.

How can it already have been seven years? It doesn't seem possible.
