Website-for-saleBeing a full-time deal blogger, a homeschooling mom coupled with a small business that is rapidly growing has me stretched way too thin, so I have made the terribly hard decision to sell www.ThriftyTexan.com.

9/11 – We Will Remember

September 11, 2015

I am forgetful. I have already forgotten one-third to one-half of what I did just last week yesterday.

But, I remember – to the exact spot – where I was on September 11, 2001. I was at work, in my office, when my boss’ wife called to say a plane had flown into the World Trade Center. I quickly grabbed the remote and switched on the TV. As soon as I did, the live footage showed the second plane plowing into the second tower. Devastation. Despair. Helplessness.

I was less than one month away from getting married, and life came to a standstill. I remember sitting in a long line of cars to get gasoline – even in my small town. I remember sitting by the hours and watching, reading and listening to reports of the attack. I remember hearing our leaders pray, you heard it in just about every address given by our leaders, especially those by our President. I remember our country came together in unity, I remember the stars and stripes flying everywhere, we cared about our neighbors, we stood up for the right, we turned to our Creator.

It’s amazing how quickly we forget. In recent weeks/months, the only news I’ve heard is bad news, bickering, partisan politics, socialism. What will it take for us to remember? 2 Chronicles 7:14 says “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

This song reminds me to remember what Christ did for me on the cross of Calvary. Another thing that I never want to be found guilty of forgetting.

I pray that today, as we remember those who lost their lives on 9/11, that we also remember our Saviour and His love for us.

“Only 2 defining forces have ever offered to die for you … Jesus Christ and the American Soldier. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.”
