Because of His crown, we can have ours.

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”

James 1:12


Somber Sunday

Ten years ago today, our country was forever changed.
Ten years ago today, innocent Americans lost their lives.
Ten years ago today, our Nation cried.
Ten years ago today, I sat in my childhood bedroom trying to sort out what was going on with the world, to the best of my fifteen year old ability. 
Ten years ago today, I pieced together a collage made from a 9/11 Special Edition newspaper.
Ten years ago today, I was shocked and made speechless. 

Today, our country is still changed.
Today, we mourn the loss of innocent lives.
Today, our Nation cries, but is also united in hope. 
Today, I am in my own home with my husband and children, and yet I am still trying to wrap my mind around how such a horrific event could happen.  
Today, I still have that collage I made from those chilling newspaper clippings.  
Today, I am still in disbelief and at a loss for words.
