nine twelve

I'm wrapped up in the news today.  I've been watching every shred of coverage I can find.  I do this every September.  I think that we owe it to those who need to tell their story.  I think we owe it to our soldiers. 

To remember. 

But, also, to look ahead.  To hold in our hearts and prove with our actions that we are, indeed, a great nation.  To recall the events of nine twelve.  In the light of that day our great nation banded together. 

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Romans 8:37-39

  1. i had such a time writing a 9/11 post. I wrote all kinds of things, but just kept coming back to these words: what man intended for evil, God will use for good. There's no other way I can make sense or peace of that day. So hard.

    Sweet friend, I'll be taking a blog break and just wanted you to know I'll miss checking in on you here. Please stay in touch via email. I'd still love to schedule a real life visit soon!
