Twenty one Years Ago ...

life in America was changed forever.  

It was changed in a way that so many who are here today will never truly know.  So many were not even born 21 years ago when America came under attack.

Many of us were effected, not just because we were Americans, but because we lost Fathers and Mothers, Brothers, Sisters, Aunts and Uncles and friends.  

We must NEVER forget.

I know I haven't posted much of late, with so much going on in my personal life, but this is something that needs to be remembered, no matter what is going on in your immediate life.

  'MEET ME IN THE STAIRWELL'


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 has saved them.

I was in Texas, Virginia, California, Michigan, Afghanistan.
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?

Sept. 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you .
But someday your journey will end.
And I will be there for you as well.
Seek Me now while I may be found.
Then, at any moment, you know you are ready to go.'

I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
God



During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are doing, and take this opportunity. (Literally it is only 1 minute.)  All you have to do is the following:

Stop and think and appreciate God's power in your life, for doing what you know is pleasing to Him. If you are not ashamed to do this, follow the instructions.

Jesus said, 'If you are ashamed of Me, I will be ashamed of you before My Father'

If you are not ashamed, spread this message ... but only if you believe

'Yes, I love my God. He is my fountain of Life and My Savior. He Keeps me going day and night. Without Him, I am no one. But with Him, I can do everything. Christ is my strength.'

Make sure you are spending time with people

I know we are all super busy and sometimes seem to run from one place to the next...but by the end of the day, we are exhausted and haven't really gotten anything done that really matters.

I saw this one the other day and it really hit home.

I had spent an hour in the bank with my dad, as he had to transfer some money. I couldn't resist myself & asked...

''Dad, why don't we activate your internet banking?''
''Why would I do that?'' He asked...
''Well, then you wont have to spend an hour here for things like transfer.
You can even do your shopping online. Everything will be so easy!''
I was so excited about initiating him into the world of Net banking.
He asked ''If I do that, I wont have to step out of the house?
''Yes, yes''! I said. I told him how even grocery can be delivered at door now and how amazon delivers everything!
His answer left me tongue-tied.
He said ''Since I entered this bank today, I have met four of my friends, I have chatted a while with the staff who know me very well by now.
You know I am alone...this is the company that I need. I like to get ready and come to the bank. I have enough time, it is the physical touch that I crave.
Two years back I got sick, The store owner from whom I buy fruits, came to see me and sat by my bedside and cried.
When your Mom fell down few days back while on her morning walk. Our local grocer saw her and immediately got his car to rush her home as he knows where I live.
Would I have that 'human' touch if everything became online?
Why would I want everything delivered to me and force me to interact with just my computer?
I like to know the person that I'm dealing with and not just the 'seller'. It creates bonds of Relationships.
Does Amazon deliver all this as well?'''
Technology isn't life..
Spend time with people .. Not with devices.

Never underestimate

 I just had to share this one.

Know your worth

I have seen something similar to this a couple of times recently and started to wonder if perhaps the universe is trying to tell me something.  
I started thinking maybe, in addition to taking it to heart, I need to share this for someone else as well.  
If it is for you .. I hope you embrace it.

A father was very proud of his daughter, so proud of all she had accomplished so far.  He couldn't wait to tell his daughter just how much.

He said, "Congratulations on your graduation. 
I bought you a car a while back. I want you to have it now."

But before I give it to you though, I want you to take it to a car dealer in the city see how much they offer you to sell it.
The girl came back to her father and said: 
"They offered me $10,000 dollars because it looks very old".

Father said: "Ok, now take it to the pawn shop".

The girl returns to her father and said: "The pawn shop offered $1,000 dollars because it's a very old car and a lot of work needs to be done".

Her father told her to join a passionate car club with experts and show them the car. The girl drove to the passionate car club. 
She returned to her father after a few hours and told him, “Some people in the club offered me $100,000 dollars because its a rare car that's in good condition.”

Then the father said, "I wanted to let you know that you are not worth anything if you are not in the right place. If you are not appreciated, do not be angry, that means you are in the wrong place.

"Don't stay in a place where no one sees your value ."

Know your worth and know where you are valued.

A diamond doesn't shine on the bottom of a cave.

For a Reason

 I saw this one and well it just said "you KNOW this is TRUE."  We often feel like we know what is best for us, yes I know I said "we" because I know it's not just ME.  

We think we know the way, but well looking back over my lifetime (ok maybe just the past 20 years or so) I know this is not always true.



Sometimes I don't want to admit it ... because you just know I was right, until we know I was anything but right.

His way.  

His time line.

I need to keep trusting in God to make the right opportunities come my way.  You should too.  Not always easy, but it is the right way.

Admit that you make mistakes

 I do.  Well, at least I try to, and here is why.



Because ... those who admit to making mistakes are REAL.

I would much rather be thought of as real, than some plastic, unrealistic automaton who has no positive purpose.  

I'm sure you know what I mean.  I am also sure you have met those folks as well, always pointing out your mistake and telling you how they could have or have done better.

Think about it...be real, make mistakes, admit it and grow!  You just can't grow if you don't take risks and DO things.  If you never make a mistake, or admit that you have, you just aren't doing anything and THAT is boring!
