9/11

As a tribute to the lives lost on 9/11, I am dedicating this blog post to

Brenda E Conway
who died at the World Trade Center on 9/11/01 at the age of 40. To leave a message in memory of her you can go here. I did not know her, but I did not personally know anyone who lost their life that day. I chose her because we share a name and I was her age at the time of her death. There is a connection.On that day, everyone in the world was affected. The world actually became a very small place on that day.

"There will be on every high mountain and on every high hill rivers and streams of waters, In the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. Moreover, the light of the moon will be as the light if the sun, and the light of the sun will be sevenfold as the light of seven days. In the day that the Lord binds up the bruise of His people and heals the stroke of their wound." Isaiah 30:25-26

"If My people who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14"You shall know that I the Lord am your Saviour and your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob....Violence shall no longer be heard in your land, neither wasting nor destruction within your borders; But you shall call your walls Salvation, and your gates Praise." Isaiah 60:16b, 18

No matter your stand on the Iraqi war, or our President, we all share a common thread... our desire for peace. Some of us have sacrificed MUCH while others have sacrificed little. Some have lost sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, mothers and fathers. Others have their families separated for a time. One such family is among my blogging family. I lift up Christina and her children today along with her beloved husband who is in Iraq this very day, helping to "heal a land". Christina, your family's sacrifice is much appreciated by us all.

According to my Godson Steve, who just finished his second tour in Iraq, here is a song that is a wonderful tribute to our soldiers and how they feel about what they are doing.

Thanks for sharing this tribute. I lost a friend, Bobby Fangman, on that day. He was a flight attendant on the second plane to hit the towers. I hope the world NEVER forgets that day.
