In Remembrance of 9-11…

* * * * * 

.

.

You say you will never forget where you were when you heard the news On September 11, 2001.

Neither will I.

.

 I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say,

.

“Good-bye.”

.

I held his fingers steady as he dialed.

.

I gave him the peace to say,

.

“Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK…I am ready to go.”

.

I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn’t coming home that night.

.

I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to Me for help.

.

“I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!”

.

I said. “Of course I will show you the way home - only believe in Me now.”

.

I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls.

.

I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.

.

I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken.

.

I was in the very hearts of the believers there, comforting and assuring them that their faith had saved them.

.

I was in Texas, Kansas, and London. I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news.

.

Did you sense Me?

.

I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name -though not all knew Me.

.

Some met Me for the first time on the 86th floor.

.

Some sought Me with their last breath. Some couldn’t hear Me calling to them through the smoke

 and flames;

.

“Come to Me… this way… take my hand.”

.

Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me.

.

But, I was there.

.

I did not place you in the Tower that day. You may not know why, but I do.

.

However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time would you have reached for Me?

.

September 11, 2001 was not the end of the journey for you.

The facts of any situation include the hopelessness of the difficulty we face, but they also include the reality of God’s power to work in our impossible situation. Someone said,

.

 

*** LOOK AROUND—-AND BE DISTRESSED,

*** LOOK WITHIN—-AND BE DEPRESSED,

*** LOOK TO JESUS—-AND BE AT REST.

.

 

In fact, that’s the only way we can be at rest when we face an impossible situation: Look to Jesus. Focus on Him instead of on the circumstances. Fill our mind with God’s Word. Concentrate our attention on His promises.

.

Yes, faith means that we face reality—-and then make a conscious choice to believe and trust God. The battle is NOT

Persons going to music festivals seldom think about the positive health effects that music imparts. As the research continues the body of evidence increasingly shows that music has many positive health benefits.  Music is one of the few activities that involve using the whole brain.  It is intrinsic to all cultures and can have surprising benefits not only for learning language, improving memory and focusing attention, but also for physical coordination and development.

 

.

 

Music can be distracting if it is too loud or too jarring, or if it competes for our attention with what we’re trying to do, but for the most part, exposure to many kinds of music has beneficial effects.

 

.

 

Music Heals

.

 

Listening to music can reduce chronic pain from a range of painful conditions, including osteoarthritis, disc problems and rheumatoid arthritis, by up to 21% and depression by up to 25%, according to a paper in the UK-based Journal of Advanced Nursing.  Music therapy is increasingly used in hospitals to reduce the need for medication during childbirth, to decrease post-operative pain and complement the use of anesthesia during surgery.  There are several theories about how music positively affects perceived pain:

 

.

Music Serves as a Distractor

.

 

Music may give the patient a sense of control.

 

.

 

Music causes the body to release endorphins to counteract pain.

 

.

 

Slow music relaxes a person by slowing their breathing and heartbeat.

Reducing Blood Pressure

No Need to Be Discouraged

==========================

.

As I was driving home from work one day, I stopped to watch a
local Little League baseball game that was being played in a
park near my home.
.


As I sat down behind the bench on the first-base line, I asked
one of the boys what the score was.
.


“We’re behind 14 to nothing,” he answered with a smile on his
face.
.


“Really,” I said. “I have to say you don’t look very
discouraged.”
.


“Discouraged?” the boy asked with a puzzled look.
.


“Why should we be discouraged?
We haven’t even been up to bat yet.”
.


I don’t know who wrote the above joke but when life has you
down, when it appears you are losing, when you think the odds Read More

A MountainWings Moment - The Saving Grace In An Ashtray‏

The Saving Grace In An Ashtray
===============================

.

God places people in our path for us to be a blessing.

.

Growing up in New York in a single parent household, my mother
would always get on me about giving things away. I can remember
as far back at the age of seven, I gave a little girl my shoes
off my feet because I saw a need. My mother would always say
that I would never have anything, but that way of thinking never
was in my mindset.

.

I know that in accordance to God’s will, when He instructs us to
give, we must be obedient because in all actuality, it all
belongs to Him. I believe if every person heeded God’s voice
when He instructs them to bless someone, we would be in a better
position as a country and as a people.

.

My son and I were in Powder Springs driving home down Hwy 278
when we saw this young woman walking, looking as though she was
exhausted. I made a U-turn and came back around and asked her
could we give her a ride. She took the offer immediately.

.

As I am driving I hear God’s voice say to give her the money
that I had in my ashtray. I don’t smoke so I would keep change
or throw the dollars I have in the ashtray.

.

The only thing was that I knew that I had $300 in the astray.

.

I didn’t hesitate, nor was I upset about His request, I just
heeded. As I dropped her off to her destination I could see that
it was an environment of drugs, sexual perversions and God knows
what. As she was thanking me for the ride, I took the money out
of the ashtray and balled it up in my hand and placed it in her
hand.

.

She didn’t know what I was giving her and I asked her not to
think nothing of it and told her that God loves her and that He
is with her every step of the way. I gave her my business card
and told her if she ever needed to get to church call me and I
