Where has time gone???

11 years ago I knelt at the altar in the House of the Lord
and promised forever...

11 years of waking up next to the man I love!

11 years already and an eternity to go!

I couldn't have found a better man!

Let's keep Rolling...

Here is a touching article by ESPN's Rick Reilly that Joseph shared with me yesterday.

9/11 was also about everyday Americans who became heroes because they sacrificed everything to save others.

Read it here.

10 years ago...

10 years ago
I was 22 weeks pregnant with my first child.

Today,
I am 31 weeks pregnant with Baby #5...

10 years ago,
Joseph and I were awoken to the ring of the telephone...
My Dad was calling to let us know the twin towers had been hit
and he wanted to make sure we were okay.

Today
we are awakened by the sound of noisy children, and church responsibilities...

A lot has changed in the past 10 years,
yet a lot is still unchanged.

And though evil is still present,
maybe even evermore present now then it was then;
Good still does exist.
It can be found it the smallest acts,
or in grand gestures.
God is still ever present in our lives.
He is NOT impartial in the affairs of men.
Miracles still do happen.
Love still wins.
Life is still precious.

Though this day we remember the lives that were lost,
the evil and the shock of it all;
Let us not forget that on the next day
We all rallied as a people,
showed the world
and
ourselves
What it means to be American...

If you would like to reflect more on the spiritual impact of September 11th in our lives go here.

A special tribute:
