I remember...

I remember....

I remember......

I remember the surrender that came after the tragedy of 9/11. I remember that the churches were filled to capacity; and even overflowing, with people trying to understand and simply GET RIGHT with our Father in heaven. We were a powerful nation; we were a PRAYERFUL nation; getting back to the TRUTH on which this nation was founded. We drew close to the Lord and lived HIS ways and lived for HIS purposes.

I remember the spirit of a truly UNITED nation. It was a time when people turned to one another and actually looked in their eyes...recognizing their humanity. People were HUMANE to one another. We all had Brotherly/Sisterly love.

I remember, and memorialize the people who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. May their families receive the Lord's peace and comfort on this day and every day.

I challenge everyone at this very moment...remember the tragedy on this anniversary, but also remember how strong our nation IS when we all draw close to the God Who created us and lets get back to living our lives boldly for Christ as we did back then and allow the Lord's love to overflow from our hearts making us a UNITED nation once again. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,
and to the repuplic for which it stands;
ONE NATION UNDER GOD;
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

you said it so well, Jamie; I was just thinking today "8 years, have we learned anything" and we haven't. oh yes some better with security, but I feel our country is drifting further and further away from God; I do hope we realize how truly fortunate we are that God has blessed America and what that truly means and I hope we never take it for granted, and I hope/pray he continues to bless our country

hugs to you
