America, I love you.

{taken from my hotel room on the 23rd floor – downtown Philadelphia}

I’m spending the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in Philadelphia, PA.  Every year I get more and more proud of this country.  Regardless of the craziness that surrounds us, I love being an American.

This morning in the hotel, we watched the September 11th footage from 10 years ago. It was haunting, scary and also uplifting to hear from those that risked their lives for friends, family and strangers.  When asked how they escaped the fire and ash the brave firefighters answered, ‘We walked towards the light.’

And we’re still doing just this…walking towards the light.  Towards the only one who can direct our path and calm our hearts when the world is turned upside down with fear, evil and anxiety.  The one who lights even the darkest places.

Be still and know that I am God.
Psalm 46:10 

Always remember.

    Dear Laura – thanks for the beautiful and touching reminder of Jesus being the Light for us to follow.

    I, too, am very thankful to live in America and trust that God’s blessing will again be on America as His people return to Him.

    Have a blessed day and safe travels.

    Love in Him,

    donna 🙂 II Chron. 7;14
