  4. WE were remembering at our house too. What a great tragedy. Yet God used it for good in so many lives. He made heroes that day. He showed others that they are valuable. Others he made realize what was really important. Wow, he will do that for everyone!

  6. Beautiful post! We are remembering too. The morning of 9/11/01 Amber was 7 and Anna, 4. I just happened to have tv on that morning and when I saw the first plane fly into the Tower, from the massive size of the Tower, I thought it was a little Cessna plane, I had no idea the magnitude of what was going on until a bit later. I called my husband at work, but the guys were already watching it on a screen there. What a sad and somber and a little frightening day that was. Thankfully we serve an all-knowing Saviour. How about you Lisa, what are your remembrances from that morning?

  7. Hi Jane,
    We had only been in our new house 2 days at that point. We have no TV or internet. My dad stopped by at 11:00 am to check on us and told me that someone had flown a plane into the towers. I was thinking a small plane, just like you. Hubby came home from work that evening and told me everything. Our first concern was our firstborn son in Navy basic training in Great Lakes, IL. All the recruits were allowed to call their families that night to assure them that they were ok. What a relief to hear my son's voice! But the aftermath of that day will be something that I'll never forget.
    Love to you, my friend!

  8. Thanks for the visual reminder, Lisa. Such a day should not be relegated to the past as such a day changed our lives. I was supposed to host a Pampered Chef party that day, but, of course, cancelled. Remember how the sky was empty of air traffic for several days? My brother-in-law was deployed (army) and told my sister that by the time we here in the states heard that anything was happening over in Iraq, that they'd already by miles in. Scary times, but times that brought us all closer to the Lord.

    Blessings to you, ~Lisa
