PATRIOT'S DAY - 10 Year Anniversary of 9-11-2001


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 know 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.


I received this as an email from my sister-in-law, Bev.  I felt so deeply moved by this, I had to share it with all of you. 
I hope this doesn't offend anyone, but if it does - TOO BAD!  It's my blog, I can voice my opinion as I see fit.  
Those of you who agree with me, thank you and God Bless you and yours.  

If you don't agree with me, I hope the above note from God softens your heart enough to hear Him calling to you.  I truly pray that you WILL hear! 

Take care and God Bless!
