+++++

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.

A Jamaican goes to Australia and goes to Woolworth’s grocery store. He finds cat food at special prices. He picks a dozen cans of cat food and goes to check out.

.

The Manager gets suspicious. He thinks that this guy cannot have a cat and will probably feed cat food to his kids. He asks the Jamaican to show him his cat before he could let him have cat food.

.


The Jamaican goes home and returns with a cat and gets to buy the cat food.

.


Next week the Jamaican finds dog food at special prices. He picks a dozen cans of dog food and goes to check out.

.


Again, the Manager gets suspicious. He thinks that this guy has a cat but he cannot have a dog, and he will probably feed dog food to his kids.
He asks the Jamaican to bring and show him the dog before he can let him have dog food.

The Jamaican goes home and returns with a dog. He gets to buy the dog food.

.

A poor couple who lived in a small village in Southern KENYA had only one son. They gave him the education they managed to afford and their son graduated as an Engineer from the nearby University..

.

Eventually, he got married to a rich girl.

.

Initially, they lived with his parents in the village. Soon the wife got tired of village life and persuaded the husband to move to the city and leave his old parents behind.

.

As time passed by the husband saw an advertisement in the newspaper about a vacancy in Juba (Sudan).

.

The Mother prayed God’s blessings for him and begged him not to forget them. He was successful and lived in Juba for years with his wife. Regularly, in the beginning, he sent money to his parents.

.

Eventually with time, he stopped and forgot that his parents ever existed. Every Sunday he went to church to pray to God.  Everytime, immediately after prayer, he always envision someone in his dream, telling him that his prayer was not accepted.

.

One day he related his story to his Pastor who advised him to go back to Kenya to visit his parents.

.

The man flew to Sudan and reached the boundary of the village. Everything had changed. He could not locate his parents’ house. He asked a young boy about the whereabouts of his parents.

.

The boy directed the man to a house and said: “In this house lives an old blind lady who lost her husband five years ago. I
also hear people saying that, she has a son who migrated to Sudan 40 years ago and never came back again.” The boy continued, “The Old lady has always been crying, longing to see her son.”  The son kept quiet and entered the home finding his mother on the
bed. He tip-toed as not to wake her up.

.

He heard the mother whispering or mumbling something. He got closer to hear her voice. This is what the mother was saying:

Serenity in Chaos‏

SERENITY IN CHAOS

..

As an airport skycap checked through a customer at curbside, he
accidentally knocked over the man’s luggage. He quickly collected
the fallen bags and apologized for the mishap. Unappeased, the
traveler burst into an angry tirade, raging and swearing at the
skycap for his clumsiness.

.

Throughout the traveler’s rant, the baggage handler calmly
apologized and smiled. The livid customer continued to berate the
man, even as he turned away and headed for his gate. Through it all
the baggage handler smiled and remained calm.

.

The next customer in line witnessed the incident and marveled at the
skycap’s professionalism and self control. “I have never seen such
restraint and humility,” he said. “How do you keep your cool when
somebody is attacking you so viciously?”

.

“It’s easy,” the skycap answered. “He’s going to London, but his
bags are going to Tokyo.”

.

I won’t recommend that we use revenge to relieve stress. But let me
tell you about someone who has found a way to go through most of his
life unfazed by the turbulence that affects most people.

.

He is one of the calmest people I’ve ever known and he describes how
he keeps his cool no matter how turbulent a situation becomes. He
says, “I look at it this way. A traffic jam has no power to make me
angry. It just stops my car. And that’s the way I try to look at
most of what happens to me.” With that philosophy, this guy goes
through life with a serenity I can only envy.

.

My friend likes to say things like, “A rude customer has no power to
make me angry; he just fusses.” And, “A mistake I made has no power
to make me upset; it’s just a chance to do better.” He shows how we
can truly find calmness in the midst of chaos.

.

Eminent 20th Century American theologian Reinhold Niebuhr wrote a
short prayer that has been reprinted countless times. Bill Wilson,
co-founder of the support group Alcoholics Anonymous, became
familiar with the prayer about 1941. He edited and adapted it, and
then circulated it with the title “Serenity Prayer.” You are likely
familiar with his version:

.

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.”

.

The prayer has been a great help to many hundreds of thousands,
perhaps millions, of people over the years. And the truth of the Read More

Ride To The Airport
====================

.

Billy Graham had just finished a tour of the Florida East Coast
and was taking a limousine to the airport.

.

Having never driven a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could
drive for a while. The chauffeur didn’t really have much of a
choice, so he got in the back of the limo and Rev. Graham took
the wheel.

.

He turned onto I-95 and accelerated to about 90 MPH.

.

Soon the blue lights of the State Highway Patrol flashed in his
rearview mirror.

.

He pulled over and a trooper came to his window.

.

When the trooper saw who it was, he said,
“Just a moment, please, I need to call in.”

.

The trooper radioed in and asked for the chief.

.

He said, “I have a REALLY important person pulled over and I
need to know what to do.”

.

The chief replied, “Who is it, I hope not Ted Kennedy?”
The trooper said, “No, even more important.”

.

“It isn’t the Governor, Jeb Bush, is it?” asked the chief.

.

“No, even more important,” replied the trooper.
