I didn’t intend to end my summer blogging hiatus on 9/11, but I did. Sometimes it feels like forever ago, but my memories are still as fresh as if it happened last week.
My heart is always heavy when I remember. But it’s important to honor the victims, the heroes, and everyone affected. I will never forget.
My son wasn’t quite three days old when the World Trade Center was attacked. Every year I think of the children his age who lost parents. Soon, they will all be adults. I pray God will comfort each one of them today.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NIV) Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we may comfort those in any trouble with the comfort which we ourselves receive from God.
The 9/11 Memorial and Museum website is an excellent resource for learning how the events unfolded eighteen years ago.
May we never forget. And may God bless you this week.
*Next week, I’ll be back to my normal blog schedule. Monthly goals will resume the first week of October.*
