A September 11 remembrance

339000 9/11 faith family Life love personal September 11 Septemer 11 spirituality

Today we sang "America The Beautiful" in church; it is impossible for me to sing that song without crying. We sang it today, along with other songs and hymns, in remembrance of those who lost their lives, those who gave their lives, and those who lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. How can I sing any song in remembrance of these things and not break down into tears for many, many reasons. Added to it is the fact that my brothers and my sister and I sang America The Beautiful at my oldest brother's bedside as he lay dying...

Read my blog on Kindle. I have lived here just over five years, started writing my blog five years ago in early August.  It is circumstantially strange, but the blog inevitably became an integral part of marriage.  I suppose it is conceivable it will always be that way.  None of us know how long this blog relationship may last, it is brand new territory for us all after all. It's funny, because I can go back and see what we were up to on or about this date back at the beginning of our marriage, and see more clearly how...
