Don’t forget– 911..

 

Don’t forget this…I know that some of you do not know anyone who was affected by this, but do you know people?  People who were not military, were killed for no other reason than that they were American.  Do you realize if homeland security is lessen instead of strengthened, it will happen again, maybe near you or your loved ones. 

The Lord is our hope, an ever present help in trouble times!

The children I had on my bus in elementary did not have a clue that it even happened…wake up! They are already forgetting…

Pray a prayer for these families who will never forget…and the ones who felt the fear..and watched silent skies…wondering if it was finished or not… This is our country, and we have become the saddest excuse for one…we don’t even care about each other, much less people we don’t know.  It saddens me…and I pray for God to have mercy on us…I would love for you to join me in that prayer.

My family will never forget 911, we will never forget how it swepted through our lives, and left us changed.  If not for Jesus being my HOPE,  I wonder if i would forget too, just to wipe it out of the memory, instead of looking in its face.

Where were you when this happened? and what did you do?

I called my husband..watched it on tv as it happened…and ran out to gather my children and bring them home with me…we huddled on the floor weeping and praying…and my son was 5 years old, and by the time I reached him, he already heard that “bad people were flying planes into buildings”…he prayed first and led the way for the rest..the faith of a child.  so tell me…where? and what?

15 years together, 12 years married!

Some of you know my story, and staying with a man 15 years is an act of God!  Today is our anniversary.  I am more in love today than the day I said “I do”.  God has truly blessed me with Scott.  Honestly…how many men would step into a relationship with a woman who was experiencing drama with an “ex”, a baby girl one and a half years old, and another daughter 8 years old?  Man, could we tell some stories of being down on the bottom!  But through it all, My hubs has always stood by me, took up my battles, shook his head when not understanding, and helped me raise two beautiful daughters as his own.  We have a son together, and I have not ever seen him treat one better than the other.  He loves them all, and they in turn love their Daddy.  Hubs has taught me lots in the last 15 years.  I learned that gentlemen still exist, love is worth fighting for, and those weeks were the money just ran out..we are so rich in the grace of God, and the gift of this marriage.  This year our daughter got married, and hubs was every bit her daddy, right down to the tear in his eye while handing her over to her prince charming.

Hubs, I believe God put you in our life, to walk with us, to love us, and to help us see right from wrong…you have done all that, and a million other things! I am praising God today for you, and the love that HE shows me through you.  You are a picture to me of how Christ loves the church…and its amazing the sacrifices I have seen you go through for me and the kids…for no other reason than you love us.  Thank you for being you and thank you for loving us.  Happy Anniversary!!

(I wanted to shout this from the top of a skyscraper or the top of a mountian…but after thinking that through..no one would hear how great I think you are…so hey! I am on the world wide web and lots of people will know what I think about my Baby!….Dude you even help with laundry, and dishes, and kids, cook…oh my..I am a spoiled brat girl..Love you!)

**update** hey hubs! you are my 200th post on WordPress…( haahahahaha can you dig it,baby? ) I am old!
