forever in God's arms...

praying for those still here...
still fighting...
every day...
never forget...

10 years ago we were changed....
10 years of sending our children to fight a new war...
10 years of conspiracy theories...
10 years of mourning for families who have lost loved ones...
10 years of politics...

10 years...
and it still stings...
10 years...
and we still cry...
10 years...
we still mourn...

10 years...
this is not a celebration of evil...
but the ability, with God, to overcome...

IF WE, THE PEOPLE, GOD'S PEOPLE...
TAKE JUST A MOMENT...
TO EMBRACE THOSE WE LOVE...
HUG THEM LIKE IT'S THE LAST TIME TODAY...
REACH OUT TO SOMEONE WE DO NOT KNOW...
SHARE SOMETHING THAT SOMEONE NEEDS MORE...
IF...
WE LOVE MORE THAN THEY HATE...
ONE BY ONE...
WE CHANGE THE WORLD...
IF WE ALL JUST TOOK A MOMENT TODAY TO REST IN GOD'S ARMS...
IMAGINE...
GOD'S LOVE SHINING THROUGH US...

My son had to fly today. I did not rest a second until he arrived safely. Why does it have to be this way?

Really beautiful post. Hard to believe it's been 10 years, because it feels like just yesterday.
On a less serious note, your comment about the Bears/Packers rivalry made me laugh! My husband and I have been to several Bears games when they were playing the Packers, and I couldn't believe the rude things that Bear fans said to me. One even asked my husband how he could sleep with me, because I'm a Packer fan! He and I always have lots of fun with the rivalry!
