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 MountainWings Moment - You Make A Difference‏

.

You Make A Difference
======================

.

A teacher in New York decided to honor each of her seniors in
high school by telling them the difference they each made.

.

She called each student to the front of the class, one at a time.

.

First she told each of them how they had made a difference to
her and the class. Then she presented each of them with a blue
ribbon imprinted with gold letters, which read,

.

“Who I Am Makes a Difference.”

.

Afterwards the teacher decided to do a class project to see what
kind of impact recognition would have on a community. She gave
each of the students three more ribbons and instructed them to
go out and spread this acknowledgment ceremony.

.

Then they were to follow up on the results, see who honored whom
and report back to the class in about a week.

.

One of the boys in the class went to a junior executive in a
nearby company and honored him for helping him with his career
planning. He gave him a blue ribbon and put it on his shirt.

.

Then he gave him two extra ribbons and said, “We’re doing a
class project on recognition, and we’d like you to go out, find
somebody to honor, give them a blue ribbon, then give them the
extra blue ribbon so they can acknowledge a third person to keep
this acknowledgment ceremony going. Then please report back to
me and tell me what happened.”

.

Later that day the junior executive went in to see his boss who
had been noted, by the way, as being kind of a grouchy fellow.

.

He sat his boss down, and he told him that he deeply admired him
for being a creative genius. The boss seemed very surprised.
The junior executive asked him if he would accept the gift of
the blue ribbon and would he give him permission to put it on
him. His surprised boss said, “Well, sure.”

.

The junior executive took the blue ribbon and placed it right on
his boss’s jacket above his heart. As he gave him the last
extra ribbon, he said, “Would you do me a favor? Would you take
this extra ribbon and pass it on by honoring somebody else.
The young boy who first gave me the ribbons is doing a project
in school, and we want to keep this recognition ceremony going
and find out how it affects people.”

.

That night the boss came home to his 14-year-old son and
sat him down. He said, “The most incredible thing happened to
me today. I was in my office and one of the junior executives
came in and told me he admired me and gave me a blue ribbon for
being a creative genius.

.

Imagine. He thinks I’m a creative genius.

.

Then he put this blue ribbon that says “Who I Am Makes a
Difference” on my jacket above my heart. He gave me an extra
ribbon and asked me to find somebody else to honor. As I was
driving home tonight, I started thinking about whom I would
honor with this ribbon and I thought about you.

.

I want to honor you. My days are really hectic, and when I come
home I don’t pay a lot of attention to you. Sometimes I scream
at you for not getting good enough grades in school and for your
bedroom being a mess, but somehow tonight, I just wanted to sit
here and well, just let you know that you do make a difference
to me.

.

Besides your mother, you are the most important person in my
life. You’re a great kid and I love you!”

.

The startled boy started to sob and sob, and he couldn’t stop
crying. His whole body shook.
He looked up at his father and said through
his tears, “Dad, earlier tonight I sat in my room and wrote a
letter to you and Mom explaining why I had killed myself and
asking you to forgive me.

.

I was going to commit suicide tonight after you were asleep.
I just didn’t think that you cared at all. The letter is
upstairs.

.

I don’t think I need it after all.”

.

His father walked upstairs and found a heartfelt letter full of

A small tourist hotel was all abuzz about an afternoon wedding where the groom was 95 and the bride was 23. The groom looked pretty feeble and the feeling was that the wedding night might kill him, because his bride was a healthy, vivacious young woman.

But lo and behold, the next morning, the bride came down the main staircase slowly, step by step, hanging onto the banister for dear life.

She finally managed to get to the counter of the little shop in the hotel. The clerk looked really concerned, “Whatever happened to you, honey? You look like you’ve been wrestling an alligator!”

The bride groaned, hung on to the counter and managed to speak,

HEAVEN OR HELL?

While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies. His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

.

“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.” “No problem, just let me in,” says the man.

.

“Well, I’d like to but I have orders from higher up. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.” “Really, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the senator.

.

“I’m sorry but we have our rules.” And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a club and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress.

.

They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at expense of the people. They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and champagne.

.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that, before he realizes it, it is time to go.

.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises. The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

.

“Now it’s time to visit heaven.”

.

So, 24 hours pass with the head of state joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns. “Well then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”

.

The senator reflects for a minute, then the senator answers: “Well, I would never

LOST IN THE DARNDEST PLACES:

An elderly Floridian called 911 on her cell phone to report that her car has been broken into.
She is hysterical as she explains her situation to the dispatcher:
“They’ve stolen the stereo, the steering wheel, the brake pedal and even the accelerator!” she cried.
The dispatcher said, “Stay calm. An officer is on the way.”

A few minutes later, the officer radios in.
“Disregard.” He says, “She got in the back-seat by mistake.”

FAMILY

Three sisters, ages 92, 94 and 96, live in a house together.
One night the 96-year-old draws a bath.
She puts her foot in and pauses.
She yells to the other sisters, “Was I getting in or out of the bath?”
The 94-year-old yells back, “I don’t know - I’ll come up and see.”
She starts up the stairs and pauses, “Was I going up the stairs or down?”
The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea - listening to her sisters.
She shakes her head and says, “I sure hope I never get that forgetful - knock on wood.”
She then yells, “I’ll come up and help both of you … as soon as I see who’s at the door.”

“I CAN HEAR JUST FINE!”

Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were playing golf one fine March day.
One remarked to the other, “Windy, isn’t it?”

“No,” the second man replied, “it’s Thursday.”

And the third man chimed in, “So am I - let’s have a beer.”
