"If you write FOR a particular market or FOR a particular editor you will often miss the mark. But if you write because your fingers have danced across the keyboard, because a character has tapped you on the shoulder, because a story has settled in your heart, then even if you never sell it you have done the work you were meant to do. And sometime, dear readers, real magic happens." Jane Yolen


Ten Years

September 11 Pictures, Images and Photos

There are some pictures I still can't look at without choking up, without mourning. Without forgetting Who is in control. But no matter what I remember, it's still true. He is sovereign of our days and nights. Of our blessings and curses. Of good and evil. And we rejoice in all he has done over the last decade. May we NEVER forget the reason for Patriot Day.
Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails   and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior. Habakkuk 3:17-18.

Riding God's Grace Over Rough Roads


  1. I was at Ladies' Bible Study when I heard. We just sat and talked and prayed about it. I'm not sure it really hit me until I actually saw it on TV later. I was in a daze for QUITE a while after that. It's still hard. SO hard - as I said above.

  2. I was at home, watching in disbelief on TV. Joanne, thanks for the reminder that God is indeed in control! And the scripture from Malachi is one of my favorites!

  3. I was sleeping in that morning, and my mom woke me up in almost a panic. I remember landing on the couch and staring at the tv with open mouth. When the first building started going down, I kept saying, "There aren't people still inside, are there? There can't still be people inside."


Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear your thoughts - please share them!
