I was laying in bed listening to the radio show on Z88.3, when in the middle of their talking someone came in the room to quietly inform them that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center.
I remember getting out of bed, and walking into the living room, where my mom and her friend were watching it on TV.
I walked out sat on the couch and I think mom said something to me, the only thing I remember was she left and I was left sitting there.
I opened my bible to this verse…Luke 21:6 (which freaked me out)…and continued from there until I read it completely.
6″As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.”
I remember getting an email from Lisa, saying, ” I am sure glad I know God at this time in history.”
We were a nation, that was in complete and utter shock…and even today, I don’t think that will ever wear off.
I had to go to work later on that day at the school, and children kept coming up to me, saying,
” Why did planed crash into those buildings?”
and I couldn’t tell them a word.
I just kept Phillipians 4:4-7 in my mind, and said it over and over to myself…
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
So I’ll ask again…do you remember where you were?
I’ll have a poem I wrote the day after 9/11 up tomorrow…I am at my parents, so I was unable to locate it today.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
