BUT, first and foremost, the Lord is my strength and light of my salvation. I will ever praise Him.
To God be the glory!!
"Jesus Christ, the same... yesterday... today ... and forever."
Hebrews 13:5 KJV
Autumn brings us another time of reflection.
I know for me it's refreshing because the hot and dry summer is past (not yet) and the upcoming fall is becoming evident in the cooler mornings and less humid evenings. My ideal weather conditions for heaven are 70 degrees, sunny, and a breeze. But, of course, I know that whatever the weather conditions in heaven are----I KNOW it will be perfect, right?
Then we veer into the future with the beautiful fall season in all its splendor. The leaves turn vibrant colors, the air becomes crisp and cool in the day and chilly in the night. And, there's that certain smell about autumn-- the falling leaves--the garden flowers and vegetables withering and dying on the plants--the cornstalks drying. The beautiful colors of pumpkins, gourds and squash gracing our tables and landscapes.
The end of one season preparing to go into another. There’s changes... changes... changes. Nothing ever stays the same.
But praise God! There's Someone who NEVER changes. Our Lord and Savior-- our God and Father-- and the Holy Spirit.
"For I am the Lord, I change not: therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." Malachi 3:6 KJV.
In this world of technology and constant changes, it's a comfort for us to know that Jesus is always the same. He hasn’t changed just because it's the 21st century. He’s always the same.
So, in the seasons of our lives--- remember that Jesus Christ is our Constant. He's always there. He never changes.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, what a wonderful comfort to know that even though the seasons change and we change----You are a changeless God. Praise Your name. Amen.
Remembering the survivors, lost and fallen..at the World Trade Center as well as our Pentagon and in the hills of Pennsylvania!!
9-11-2001.. 15 years since that fateful day. We still must 'NEVER FORGET' the horror and the fight that our country has initiated against terror. For all our troops throughout the world and in Afghanistan and Iraq who have put their lives on the line for our freedom. May we 'NEVER FORGET' them as well. For all those who have died.. for their families... and loved ones.. Please dear Lord.. bring all our men and women home safe. Where were you when you saw and heard about the planes crashing into the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Pennsylvania
The Lord is so good to our country, the United States of America. When this disaster hit, hearts were changed into truly patriotic ones.. ones that would die for their homeland and their kinsman... the congress and government agencies were united and "God Bless America" was sung by Senators and Congressmen alike..
Have you become complacent too and forgotten why we went to war against the Terrorism that so fills this world?
As our country continues to be at war against these terrorists.. we pray God's continued protection and wisdom be given to our president and all our men and women in the military who are in harm's way.
This statue still stands in New York harbor welcoming the oppressed ones of the world..America is STILL a loving and forgiving nation
These pictures tell it all. don't they?
O beautiful for spacious skies....for amber waves of grain.. For purple mountain majesties.. Above the fruited plain.. America! America! God shed His grace on thee.. And crown thy good with brotherhood.. From sea to shining sea!!
Here is the cross of iron beams that was found among the debris at the WTC, which now is a permanent fixture at the Memorial at Ground Zero
And remember when the firemen put up the flag they had found... Another Iwo Jima!!
