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 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:

A little boy came up to his mother in the kitchen one evening while she was fixing supper, and handed her a piece of paper that he had been writing on.
After his Mom dried her hands on an apron, she read it, and this is what it said:

..

For cutting the grass: $5.00

For cleaning up my room this week: $1.00

For going to the store for you: $.50

Baby-sitting my kid brother while you went shopping: $.25

Taking out the garbage: $1.00

For getting a good report card: $5.00

For cleaning up and raking the yard: $2.00

Total owed: $14.75

..

Well, his mother looked at him standing there, and the boy could see the memories flashing through her mind. She picked up the pen, turned over the paper he’d written on, and this is what she wrote:

..

For the nine months I carried you while you were growing inside me:

No Charge

.

For all the nights that I’ve sat up with you doctored and prayed for you:

No Charge

.

For all the trying times, and all the tears that you’ve caused through the years:

No Charge

.

For all the nights that were filled with dread, and for the worries I knew were ahead:

No Charge

.

For the toys, food, clothes, and even wiping your nose:

No Charge

.

Son, when you add it up, the cost of my love is:

No Charge.

When the boy finished reading what his mother had written, there were big tears in his eyes, and he

The IRS decides to audit Grandpa, and summons him to the IRS office.

 . 

  

The IRS auditor was not surprised when Grandpa showed up with his attorney.

 . 

  

The auditor said, ‘Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no full-time employment, Which you explain by saying that you win money gambling. I’m not sure the IRS finds that believable.’

 . 

 

I’m a great gambler, and I can prove it,’ says Grandpa. ‘How about a demonstration?’

 . 

  

The auditor thinks for a moment and said, ‘Okay. Go ahead.’

 .

  

Grandpa says, ‘I’ll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own eye.’

 .

  

The auditor thinks a moment and says, ‘It’s a bet.’

 .

  

Grandpa removes his glass eye and bites it. The auditor’s jaw drops.

 .

  

Grandpa says, ‘Now, I’ll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my other eye.’

 .

  

Now the auditor can tell Grandpa isn’t blind, so he takes the bet.

 . 

 

Grandpa removes his dentures and bites his good eye.

 .

  

The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand, with Grandpa’s attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.

 .

  

‘Want to go double or nothing?’ Grandpa asks ‘I’ll bet you six thousand dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in between.’

 .

  

The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and decides there’s no way this old guy could possibly manage that stunt, so he agrees again.

 . 

  

Grandpa stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he strains mightily, he can’t make
