The day after September 11

After 9/11, don't you feel thankful to be alive and to get to do the things you do? I do. It's such a tough and heart-wrenching remembrance. Yesterday I was finally able to watch what happened. I was never able to for 15 years. I spent the day thinking about those lost and praying for those left behind and those suffering PTSD from the experience. 

Then I had to honor those who continue to be killed needlessly in our world whether in our own backyards or across the planet. Grateful that the Lord is in control otherwise it doesn't make sense. 

Days like today make me grateful for everyone and all things in my life. So if I haven't told you lately, I love you - I do. 

Ecclesiastes 3:9-11 What good comes to anyone who works so hard, all to gain a few possessions? I have seen the kinds of tasks God has given each of us to do to keep one busy, and I know God has made everything beautiful for its time. God has also placed in our minds a sense of eternity; we look back on the past and ponder over the future, yet we cannot understand the doings of God.
