Patriot Day 2015

We simply cannot forget.

We all remember where we were when that horrible day in the history of our country occurred.  It was broadcast on live television some 14 years ago.  We sat mesmerized, as if watching a “made for television” movie;  the reality of the tragedy hitting us with the fact that we were watching truth.

It was simply surreal.  It still is in a way.

I was on air at a contemporary Christian radio station. My shift was 7-9am every day.  It started off like any other…timing of course was everything.  We broadcast a short news spot at the top of every hour or half hour when the breaking news was shared.  Then the phone started ringing.  I did not know what was really going on…and to this day I truly don’t remember my words. My job was to encourage through word and song and I believe that is what I did.

September 11, 2001

Others came to work and brought small televisions…the satellite news took over after a period of time.  I had talked to my children, my mom…but couldn’t get a hold of my UPS husband.  Finally he was able to call.  I remember no one knew what to do…or what was next.

I am on air again. I am back at the very station I was at 14 years ago. And I thought about that day and the tragedy that occurred to our nation.  

And I realized many things…God was our comfort.  God was our hope.  God was our peace.  God was still on His throne.

And He still is today. None of that has changed.

In that I have the utmost confidence.

Where were you that day in September?

We must never forget.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 60 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer and author... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 44 years, married almost 41 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we became grandparents to a beautiful baby girl in 2018!! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, which seem endless right now in 2020, HE is present and loves us unconditionally. Thanks for reading. ~Be Encouraged Today~

Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear from you....
