On September 11, 2001 I watched the live broadcast news report about one of the twin towers being hit in New York City. While I watched I saw another plane hit the other one and then confirming reports about a third plane that crashed into the pentagon. It was reported that there could be possibly 10,000 or more fatalities. I knew we were under attack!
I cried along with many Americans and all I could think of was to paint something to encourage everyone. I thought of a design of the phoenix rising from the ashes and replaced it with an American eagle. I thought a smoked filled sky with a tattered and torn flag that you would see during war would be appropriate.
I searched the scriptures and found an encouraging prayer from Isaiah 33:2
…….be our strength each day and our salvation in the time of trouble.
America can get through these terrible times. Let “In God We Trust” be in your heart and believe that “If God is for us, who can be against us?”. Romans 8: 31
America will prosper again if we don’t forget that the foundation of this great country was built on God. We need to stand strong for our country and the constitution. We need to remember that our freedoms guaranteed in the constitution is in jeopardy. Be vigil of the laws being passed under our eyes.
Remember the story of the frog being slowly boiled to death in a pot of water? It doesn’t even realize what is happening. Then it’s too late.
Reflection 9-11-15 My words 14 years ago seem hauntingly true today. We are now facing an out of control judicial system legislating laws that belong to Congress. Congress passing crippling regulations that oppress the business world and yes, our 1st and 2nd amendment rights are being distorted and liberties are being taken away.
Do your home work on the people you vote in office. Make sure the candidate upholds the constitution.
Don’t be distracted or fooled by what the media is telling you.
