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.

After being away on business, Tim thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift.

“How about some perfume?” he asked the cosmetics clerk.

She showed him a bottle costing $250.00

 

.

 

“That’s a bit much”, said Tim, so she returned with another bottle for $130.00.

“That’s still quite a bit”, Tim complained.

 

.

 

Growing annoyed, the clerk showed him a perfume valued at $50.00.

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.

Michelle Obama's Inaugural Ball Dress: All the Details

First Lady, Michelle Obama made it a fashion tradition Monday night (Jan 21), wearing a custom-made Jason Wu gown to the inauguration balls.

First Lady Michelle Obama in 2009 (left) and Monday night (right). Both gowns are by Jason Wu.

The ruby-colored dress was a follow-up to the white gown the young designer made for her four years ago when she was new to Washington, the pomp and circumstance, and the fashion press.

One song can spark a moment
One flower can wake a dream
One tree can start a forest
One bird can herald spring

+=+

One smile begins friendship
One handclasp lifts a soul
One star can guide a ship at the sea
One word can frame a goal

+=+

One vote can change a nation
One sunbeam lights a room
One candle wipes all the darkness
One laugh will conquer gloom

+=+

One step must start each journey
One word must start each prayer
One hope will raise our spirits
One touch can show you care
