How could we forget? Each one of us remember vividly exactly where we were and what we were doing when we first heard about the terrorist attack on our country. We held vigil beside the television set as we watched in horror over and over again the scenes that looked more like a movie setting. Our lives were changed, never the same. So many lives lost, so much pain and sorrow. As Christians we ask how could any good ever come from something like this?? With prayer. We can pray when nothing else helps. Some people who never prayed started praying. People started looking at their lives differently. Material things weren't so important anymore. What is important when our days on earth could be numbered? Peace. Peace in our hearts. Peace in knowing we are doing what our Heavenly Father expects of us. Peace in knowing we will meet our loved ones again in Heaven no matter what happens.

Now with more and more natural disasters occurring, it certainly gets ones attention, makes one think "what if?" Yesterday here in Florida we experienced an unusual earthquake for this area. More hurricanes, more floods, more crime. Innocent people, young and old have lost their lives. What can we do? Pray. Pray for peace in our own hearts. Pray for peace even when we fear. He is my refuge and my fortress, in Him will I trust.
