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.

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

Only you Can Make The Right Things Happen In Your Life

 You don’t need anyone else

to give your life direction.

You know what’s right for you.

Inside your heart exists

a special knowledge

of the plans you’ve made,

the hopes you have,

and the dreams you hold.

You may be hesitant at times,

even fearful to go on,

but that’s a natural feeling

all of us go through.

What you need to remember

is what means the most to you

and how to keep alive your

hopes

and dreams.

Then, with all the greatness

that is within you,

go in that new direction -

backed by your own faith,

Arguably the most naturally gifted athlete the world has ever seen.  Usain St. Leo Bolt, a.k.a. ‘Lightning’ Bolt, confirmed his tremendous talents when he realized his dreams by winning a phenomenal three gold medals and breaking three world records at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.  Bolt became the first man in Olympic history to win both the 100m and 200m races in world record times and then as part  of the 4×100m team that also smashed the world record later in the meet.  He created history again
