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 Sack Lunches
.
I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. ‘I’m glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap,’ I thought.

.
Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation.

.
‘Where are you headed?’ I asked the soldier seated nearest to me.
Petawawa. We’ll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we’re being deployed to Afghanistan

.
After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached the east, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time…

.
As I reached for my wallet, I overheard a soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch.  ’No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn’t be worth five bucks.  I’ll wait till we get to base.’

.
His friend agreed.

.
I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch. I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty  dollar bill.  ’Take a lunch to all those soldiers.’ She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. ‘My son was a soldier in Iraq ; it’s almost like you are doing it for him.’

.
Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, ‘Which do you like best - beef or chicken?’
‘Chicken,’ I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went

Are You Having Fun Yet?‏

It's Funtime! by dannysquid

Plato said that work should be play. Some airline employees have taken his injunction seriously. After landing, one flight attendant announced, “Thank you for flying Delta Business Express. We hope you enjoyed giving us the business as much as we enjoyed taking you for a ride.” There’s a flight attendant who knows how to turn her work into play.

She may have been the same one who, as the passengers disembarked from the aircraft, announced, “Last one off the plane must clean it.”

A British insurance agent has fun with the accident reports he reads from some of his clients. Like the one who wrote: “I started to slow down but the traffic was more

WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE LUTHERAN AIRLINES IS NOW OPERATING IN MINNYSOTA!
ALSO SERVING VISCONSIN, NORDERN MITCHIGEN, NORT & SOUT DAKOTA

If you are travelin soon, consider Lutran Air, the no-frills airline. You’re all in da same boat on Lutran Air, here flyin is a upliftin experience:

- Dair is no first class on any Lutran Air flight.

- Meals are potluck. Rows 1 tru 6, bring rolls; 7 tru 15, bring a salad; 16 tru 21, a hot dish, and 22-30, a dessert.

- Basses and tenors please sit in da rear of da aircraft.

- Everyone is responsible for his or her own baggage.

- All fares are by free will offering, and da plane will not land til da budget is met.

- Pay attention to your flight attendant, who vill acquaint you wit da safety system aboard dis Lutran Air.

Okay den, listen up; I’m only gonna say dis vonce: In da event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, I am frankly gonna be real surprised and so vill Captain Olson, because ve fly right around two tousand feet, so loss of cabin pressure would probably mean da Second Coming or someting of dat nature, and I wouldn’t bodder with doze liddle masks on da rubber tu bes–you’re gonna have bigger tings to worry about den dat. Just stuff doze back up in dair liddle holes.

Probably da masks fell out because of turbulence which, to be honest wit you, we’re gonna have quite a bit of at two tousand feet, sorta like driving across a plowed field, but after a while you get used to it. In da event of a water landing, I’d say forget it.

Start saying da Lord’s Prayer and just hope you get to da part about forgive us our sins as we forgive dose who sin against us, which some people say ‘trespass against us,’ which isn’t right, but what can you do?

Da use of cell phones on da plane is strictly forbidden, not because day may confuse da plane’s navigation system, which is by da pants all da way. No, it’s because cell phones are a pain in da wazoo, and if God had meant you to use a cell phone, He wudda put your mout on da side of your head.

We start lunch right about noon and it’s buffet style wit da coffeepot up front. Den we’ll have da hymn sing; hymnals are in da seat pockets in front of you. Don’t take yours wit you when you go or I am gonna be real upset and I am NOT kiddin!

Right now I’ll say Grace: Come, Lord Jesus, be our guest and let deze gifts to us be blessed. Fader, Son, and Holy Ghost, May we land in Dulut or pretty close.
