In memory of all who lost their lives on that dreadful day. Tuesday September 11th, 2001: [8:46 AM: Flight 11 crashes into the (World Trade Center) north tower. 9:03 AM: Flight 175 crashes into the south WTC tower.]


What ever that happens in life, happens for good.....so stop worrying about the future and forget the past.

After Sept. 11th, one company invited the remaining members of other companies who had been decimated by the attack on the Twin Towers to share their available office space. At a morning meeting, the head of security told stories of why these people were alive...... and all the stories were just the 'L I T T L E' things.
As you might know, the head of the company survived that day because his son started kindergarten. Another fellow was alive because it was his turn to bring donuts. One woman was late because her alarm clock didn't go off in time. One of them missed his bus. One spilled food on her clothes and had to take time to change. One's car wouldn't start. One went back to answer the telephone. One had a child that dawdled and didn't get ready as soon as he should have. One couldn't get a taxi. The one that struck everyone was the man who put on a new pair of shoes that morning, took the various means to get to work but before he got there, he developed a blister on his foot. He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid. That is why he is alive today.






Now when I am stuck in traffic, miss an elevator, turn back to answer a ringing telephone......... all the little things that annoy me. I think to myself, this is exactly where God wants me to be at this very moment... 
Next time your morning seems to be going wrong, the children are slow getting dressed, you can't seem to find the car keys, you hit every traffic light, don't get mad or frustrated. God is at work watching over you. 
Pass this on to someone else, if you'd like. 
There is NO LUCK attached. If you decide not to pass it on that's okay: "God's Love & Goodness Is Not Dependent On... blogging, emailing, texting, liking, tweeting, plus-one-ing or any other type of message sharing".

Does that mean that for all the people who were in the Towers when they went down, that that is where God wanted them to be?

No! and I feel for all those who lost loved ones in [9/11].
But somtimes innocent people suffer because of the wicked actions of others, e.g. being in a certain place/location at the 'wrong' time.

God has given us 'all' free will, free will to chose to do right or wrong. When people choose to do wrong/sin there are consequences,
and sadly sometimes innocent bystanders etc. are hurt/killed because of their evil/sinful actions.

God is good and all he does is good.

The devil is a liar, he is father of lies. The devil wants to rob, kill & destroy. And the devil wants people to believe that every 'bad' thing that happens is God's fault.
